We recently stayed at the HI Express in Astoria, paying a bit extra for a room facing the river (as recommended by another TA reviewer). I totally recommend spending the money for the river view as well, you just can't beat watching the water, the birds, the ships, etc. We found the staff to be friendly, the property well kept up, the room was clean and updated, and the breakfast was a little above standard. There is a pool and a workout room, which looked inviting and clean, although we did not utilize either of these conveniences.
Of note, I particularly liked the size of the breakfast room (not just three or four tables jammed together in a corner of the lobby). We loved being able to pop out the back door and stroll along the river walk in any direction. We appreciated the listing in the lobby of what ships would be coming through from the bar and at what time. And even though the property is partially situated under a bridge, we did not experience any noise from either the street or the bridge.
I think it would be a fairly substantial walk to the old downtown part of Astoria (maybe not when the trolley is running), but there are a number of restaurants within walking distance, so if you just don't want to get back into the car, you don't have to.
We will definitely be back
