You must get a river view room under the wonderful bridge with interesting river traffic. Bit of a walk into town. Quite a good breakfast. some helpful staff -others just a bit indifferent. there is also a comfort inn and a new hampton inn is opening in Astoria

Room Tip: river view

Everything in this hotel is pretty much average. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean. The complimentary breakfast downstairs was average. I missed having TV availability. There was no TV guide, so I had to guess and of course could not find a thing. No movies were available except for $9.99 you could choose from the movie rentals they had DOWNSTAIRS.
I did not need unlimited movies for that high price, just one would have been nice!

My husband and I were mostly very comfortable in this clean and spacious room (the exception being, as it nearly always is, the rock hard bed, but I know some folks like that). Ask for a river view room and you'll be treated to the stunning perspective of the Astoria Bridge looming above and endlessly fascinating boat traffic and wildlife to lure you away from the TV. Just outside is a riverfront walking path that parallels the city's trolley (which driving rain regrettably prevented us from sampling). And just a few hundred feet to the west on that path is the much more expensive Cannery Pier Hotel. We were happy to spend less while still venturing down there during their afternoon wine and cheese tasting (where the hotel staff warmly welcomed us). We were also only minutes North from Fort Clatsop and the much more expensive but fun to visit towns of Seaside and Cannon Beach. Saved a lot of money and had a lovely time exploring it all.

I travelled from Portland OR to revisit Astoria OR over the 2012 Columbus Day weekend. I had a great visit and some of my pleasure came from staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Astoria. The building itself is quite new and obviously well maintained. When I checked in the staff proved to be very helpful and friendly. My suite looked out at the bridge that crosses the mouth of the Columbia River as well as the Columbia River Bar itself. Large ships sailed by the Inn only about 50 feet from my second floor window. The Astoria Trolley moves right past the Inn and took me all over Astoria for only $2.00 for an all day pass. Down town Astoria was only a couple of blocks from the Inn and there were an amazing amount of restaurants within walking distance. The helpful staff supplied me with maps and directions to all the tourist sites I was interested in visiting.

The free morning buffet was one of the best I've every had at any motel/hotel. My room/suite was large, clean, and the furnature was quite comfortable. As I wrote above, the view out my window was amazing as the Astoria Bridge goes right over the Inn and the nearby Columbia River was beautiful and filled with large ships and small boats at all times.

This closeness to the river also provided the only downside to my visit. During the night it got quite foggy. At approximately four AM one of the large container ships was passing by was just off my room when it honked its fog horn. Needless to say, this woke me up. I quickly got back to sleep but it was annoying. Obviously if it hadn't been for the fog this would not have happened.

All in all, my stay at the Inn was near perfect and I plan on staying there whenever I visit Astroria. The staff was wonderful and the I'm not sure how I could have asked for a better physical plant. If you are visiting Astoria Oregon for either business or pleasure, I don't know how you could do better than staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites.

We've stayed here several times and are always pleased. The rate is fair; the rooms are comfortable, and the help is always pleasant and helpful. Be sure to request a riverside room, that way you can watch ships of the world coming and going to Columbia River ports.

Room Tip: A riverside room is the only way to go.

Very nice hotel but a little pricey for this area. Beautiful room. Right on the boardwalk and under the bridge! They have bikes that you can ride on the boardwalk. They are free for first hour. They even have a bicycle built for 2. Complimentary breakfast is good!

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is really quite and comfortable. The setting was beautiful with a small little beach and a nice park right outside the back door. The hotel has bicycles for customers to use with a path right behind the hotel. We were able to lie in bed and watch the marine traffic. We were traveling with a small dog and found the hotel very pet friendly. The free breakfast had a nice selection of cheese omelets, fruit and of course all you favorite carbs! Can't wait to return.
