At check-in we began to get a speech about smoking in the rooms and within 15 feet of the property. I mentioned that none of us smoked and they went on to inform us that if we did we would be fined a $200, etc. I was a little taken aback already having told him we did not smoke and...

The thing is, this COULD be one of the best spots in Seaside. Imagine an "Embassy Suites" except built in the fifties and then NEVER touched since. It has so much going for it: A nice floorplan and room layout, directly next door to the Aquarium, a half a block from the "turn-a-round", on the boardwalk, on the beach, directly...

It was during the old cars show at the beach... The price they charged,I think they expected a sell out..We wanted two queen beds, $146.00 for one Queen and a single. She said that is all they had, we looked out very early in the morning, so their sell out didn't work out, 3 or 4 cars is all in...

We decided on a Oregon Coast Get-Away last minute & on Labor Day Holiday! I kept checking back to find hotel openings hoping to score a good location last minute, and I finally found one, and it was on the beach too!! This older hotel with a long history of being in Seaside in very unique and its right next...

We had the second floor corner room by the Aquarium. It is fun watching people walk down the boardwalk. The hotel is old, but every year we go there there are updates in the rooms . The stairs are outside and seem to be getting steeper every year. Could it be we are getting older?

The room had a full size kitchen with two queen beds, one in it's own separate room which was very nice. There is a lot of cupboard and closet space if staying for an extended amount of time. Downside was, the kitchen we were told, " comes fully equipped with dish and cookware." Not true. There were pots and pans...

Don't let the rating scare you. It is an old motel but our room was clean and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and the WiFi worked great. Room got warm but you can ask for a fan. The view from the room was breathtaking! Located off the promenade with great restaurants and shops. Great value!

Very affordable and located right on the beach with a room facing the ocean. Microwaves, refrigerators and coffee makers are included in the room. Family operated for more than 30 years. Easy walk to area restaurants and shops. Located along the historic promenade.

The website for this motel is so misleading! It is on the beach but it is horrible! The room is so outdated. It seems dirty...saw a spot of blood on the bedspread! My sister and I found a tick in the room! We were afraid to go to sleep. Highly overpriced...very poor quality...ugh...

2 queen room, kitchenette ocean view. Rooms were of a 70s design - well worn but clean. The large window was a great spot to enjoy the unobstructed ocean view at all hours/weather. The room could have slept 4. 1 room is at the front, the other faces the parking lot at the back. At times it was hard to...
