“Stunning view from our room”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Overall, the hotel knew who the real star was - the view of the stunning Astoria-Megler bridge sitting on the equally stunning river. Two views for the price of one.

There were other more expensive hotels in the area. Save money and stay here because the view here is more than good enough.

The decor and amenities are what you'd expect from hotels of the budget price range. More than decent. Also, the vibe is family/cozy and not too upscale nor trendy. Which is kinda appropriate for this region of natural beauty.

The staff was super helpful. Although, slightly understaffed during times when it seems every human being alive is checking in at the front desk.

Another downside was a staff member's claim that the pool was heated. It was cold when I swam that night so you might want to confirm that with the staff. I may have just been given the wrong info.

While I hail from New York, I am not one of those food snobs that seem prevalent from that city. Show me a free hotel breakfast anywhere and I'll be there. The breakfast they served at this Holiday Inn fulfilled its prime directive - warm, healthy options available, assorted spread. Best part was the gravy addition.

Overall, save money and stay here instead of the super high end ones in the area. You'll all be looking at the same water view anyway.

Stayed August 2013

Clean, well-equipped room with comfortable bed, good hotel facilities, co-operative and friendly staff. Good free breakfast. Convenient for restaurants, tram and riverside walkway. Good wifi in room. Use the tram to visit the maritime museum, great place.

Room Tip: If you want to pay extra, get the river view side.

This was a great location for my sister and I, while spending a week on the northern Oregon coast. The rooms were clean and quiet; the front desk offered great recommendations on walk able restaurants in the area. Loved the area, set under the rustic Astoria bridge in this old seaport, you can feel the history here. Don't miss using one of the complimentary bikes and roam the quaint city and river way.

Room Tip: rooms that face the riverside

This was my second visit to this site and it is still as great as ever. The river view was great - the Astoria-Megler Bridge at night is quite a site to see. Loved to be able to use the bike for a trip along the riverfront. Stayed with a group of co-workers and we were are very pleased. The room was larger and well laid out. Great facilities.

We can't say enough about our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Astoria. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The view from our room was fantastic!! We could see the Columbia River, Ocean and bridge over head. (Couldn't even hear the traffic) We made it in time to watch the sunset right from our room. We will be staying here again. It was worth the extra cost! Added bonus is they are pet friendly.

A stay at this hotel is hard to beat...especially when the weather is nice.

The river front is just outside your door, ocean freighters and fishing boats are passing by and so is the trolley that goes from one end of town to the other. The river walk is fantastic. It doesn't matter whether you go left or right. Right takes you to Downtown, the Maritime Museum and beyond. If you go left, you'll go under the bridge to Washington State and end up at the commercial boast basin.

A room with a river view is preferable. It is also a little more expensive, but we think it's well worth the extra money. The staff is super-nice and the breakfast is great. It appears to change every day. The first morning it was sausage patties with a cheese omelet. The next morning they served bacon with scrambled eggs.

A great place for lunch or dinner, the Bridgewater Bistro, is only a quarter mile away...within easy walking distance.

Our two dogs really enjoyed all the green grass in back (riverfront) of the hotel and the adjacent park.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Astoria is an old town with plenty of history.
