"close to the beach but hotel is run down"
rooms are very small no place to sit beds hard as a rock shower so small your rubing the curtin luck worm water ?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The family room is very nice but carpet smells bad"
overall the stay was ok, like the other reviews stated, a one day stay is doable as the carper/room smelled REALLY bad and very noticeable while sleeping. I would of wanted to stay another night there if it wasn't for the smell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but Decent Motel...Service not so much."
The motel was in a good location blocks away from the Aquarium, beach, and 'Downtown". Room was small and clean with no air conditioning. The lady that checked us in was short with us like she didn't want us there. When I checkout of the motel, the gentleman was a lot nicer (100% improvement over the lady the day before.) We stayed RIGHT across from […] the pool and we could hear everything...at least it was quiet otherwise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well located and nice staff"
This hotel is nothing fancy but the staff is nice and helpful. It is 2min away from the beach and they have a free parking lot. Rooms could be cleaner but overall it was not a bad experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very close to the beach"
It was very nice to have this place so close to the beach. Was a block away. Full kitchen was useful, had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, but could use an update."
Very short walk to the beach. Off the main drag. Very convenient location. We shopped and played nearby and made short loops back to drop things off. Made it easy. Walls are a bit thin, but that deals more with inconsiderate neighbors verses the hotel. Small pool. Friendly staff, but they did not clean our room the next day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okayish Hotel, Great Location"
Hotel was fine. For the price, it's pretty obvious what you are getting. It was clean however, and staff was curteous. Location is great. Walkable to every thing beachside and two blocks from the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The neighbors around us were entirely too loud, and we could hear the people in the pool all the time. Other than that, the motel was great and so was the service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much better than I expected based on the price"
I wanted an inexpensive room near the beach and I'm glad I didn't let the previous poor reviews deter me. The City Center Motel is a great value option amid all the $100+ options around the Oregon coast, and it's a block from the beach! The room had everything I needed; Fridge, Microwave, TV, private bathroom, 12pm checkout, and a workspace. The bed, […] I admit like other reviewers, was not that comfortable, but I've slept in worse in other motels. I didn't try out the pool, but maybe next time because I'm sure I'll stay here again.

"not what we expected"
first it was dirty, dust on everywhere. beds were not made properly. and the sheets did not fit properly. we went to shower and when we turn on the hot water all the way. we only got very lukewarm water. noise from the next room's dogs, kept us up 3/4 of the nite. no phone in the room to call front desk to complaint. this was a no smoking room, we found […] niciatine resitude all over the bathroom. the funny thing about this , as we were checking out, we complained to front desk blew us off like they did not care.

"Nice for the Price."
For the price of this hotel, it honestly wasnt bad. We stayed for one night just to get away from Portland. You do get what you pay for, the bed was pretty stiff. And there is no fan in the bathroom so it gets very steamy during a shower. But the location is what makes it worth the pay. About a block away from the heart of downtown, and only a short […] walk to the beach. If you just need a cheap get away for a night and can put up with a bed that isnt the best, this is a steal deal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice economical and easy access motel."
When my daughter went to the front desk to see if the TV had a DVD player and if they had movie channels, she said it was basic cable and not DVD. but when we turned on the TV there were many, many channels - more than basic. We were going to go to a Video store and rent a DVD player. Glad we didn't. She should be told there is a huge selection of TV […] channels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"COMPLIMENTS ON OUR STAY AT CITY CENTER MOTEL"
The room was very clean and the hotel assistance were very pleasant. We would stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
I understand you get what you pay for... Although... This motel is super dingy and way outdated. I mean motel six looks like a 5 star hotel compared to this one. I decided I could look past that though. The walls are paper thin, and several creepy looking people live on premise. There was a dog barking all night in the room next to ours also. The worst […] part was there was easily a 2 inch gap between the door and the door frame, letting in light, sound, wind and everything. It also could have jeopardized our security since the door did not properly lock. They do not have black out curtains so it was extremely bright in the morning too. Neither my husband not I got any sleep. The bed was comfy, but that was about it. I asked for a refund and spent the rest of my trip elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet hotel"
Stayed during spring break 2014 was nice and quiet!Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was very nice, location was great, rooms were clean. The lighting in the room is not very good and you have to dry your hair outside of the bathroom as there is no outlet. While the boardwalk feature is nice it tends to be noisy when people are walking and kids are running. I would stay there again short term, but would definitely not stay over […] a couple of days at the most. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you go in with the expectation that's it's going to be an older hotel then you will be fine. The chairs and mattresses need a serious upgrade. My mattress was not comfortable. Very saggy. Also there was a smell in the room that just made it uncomfortable for me. I'm not sure if it was because it was an old building or not. Ladies be aware that no […] hair dryer is provided. They don't even have one at the front desk to borrow. I highly suggest that the hotel at least has them for guests to borrow. Usually I'm only in a hotel at night to sleep so I can put up with a not so fancy room. The chair and the mattress however were so uncomfortably that it wasn't pleasant to sit in the room. I just couldn't get over the smell either. For those reasons I'm not sure I'll stay their again. The best thing about the hotel is its location. It's within walking distance to just about everything u may want to do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice location, close to the beach,the room could have more electric outlets as there are only 3 in the room and they are used by their appliance such as TV , fridge and night table lamp. We unplugged the one for the fridge and it was SO old that our plug was not staying in!!! Pleas note: there no hair dryer either. We enjoyed our room at the very back, […] quiet .

"Great place to stay on a budget"
08/18/14 Crisie B
Love this place. We reserved the king plus 2 queens with a kitchenette and were very pleased. It was more like a little apartment than a motel. The king was in the main room and then there was two bedrooms with a queen in each. The kitchen has a full size fridge, sink and a stove. Not to mention dishes, cooking pans and utensils. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed three nights and had myself, my husband and three teen children plus our 5 month old lab. There was tons of room for everyone. It is very central to everything. A block away from Broadway in one direction and a block away from the beach in the other. We will be coming back for sure!!
"Was truly amazed.... great room, great experience, great location."
08/08/14 Debi W Vancouver, Washington
was traveling with my girl scouts. The room had a king and 2 queens and a pull out couch. All super comfy. 3 separate rooms, full kitchenette full size fridge stove plates and bowls cups. . The table only had seating for 3 but we survived. 2 blocks from the beavh, 2 blocks from Broadway main drag, and arcade and stuff. I was so amazed. So affordable. Very happy.
"Very happy with our choice to stay at the City Center Motel"
08/04/14 kimod74 Colorado
Hotel is located a quick 2 blocks from the beach and is right smack in the middle of seaside. We parked our car in the hotel lot and left it there. We walked everywhere we wanted to go! We got a great deal on a 2 queen room right across from the pool. $69 a night. you can't complain about that in Seaside! Our room was clean and had everything we needed. Sure, the rooms need a little refresh but they were not as "abused" as I was expecting. The room met our needs. CONS: property is NOISY. Either blame thin walls or loud rude people talking loud at all hours of the morning, unfortunately. Shower pressure and hot/cold is inconsistent. Be careful to not burn yourself. I assume this has to do with old plumbing system. Pro's: Walking distance to promenade, beach, restaurants and things to do. Comfortable beds, coffee maker in room, refrigerator and microwave were appreciated. There is a laundry room on site with a couple of washers and dryers. Came in handy we had to do laundry once. Reasonably priced. We enjoyed the WARM pool/hot tub. One end of the pool was kind of like a hot tub with jets and the pool was so WARM! It was very nice, although the pool area needs a little refresh as well. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and found it to be an incredible deal. If you can handle a bit of noise, not only from loud people but from the fact that you have streets on all sides of you being that you are in the middle of town, you will do ok. We stayed 3 nights.
"Best place next to the beach."

We loved this little motel so much when we left for astoria, we decide to drive back to sea side and stay there again, staff here is the best of the best.... will be back again and plan on staying there.....rick
"Great hotel for the price and location"
07/30/14 Lauren K Portland, Oregon, United States
Great location, great price, friendly staff, clean, dog-friendly. Yes, it might be a little worn, but on a budget, it was a great place to stay. Only two blocks from the beach, and right in the center of town, so you could walk everywhere. It has a pool, but we mainly came into town for one evening for a beach campfire and sunset. I would stay there again.
"Perfect for a family beach stay!"
07/22/14 Coloradofolk Durango, Colorado
This is an older Motel, but it was clean and very spacious.We had a 2 bedroom w/ queen beds and a King bed in the main room, so 3 beds and a kitchen gave us a lot of room to spread out. The prices were very good considering the prices of other motels at Seaside- and its only a block from the beach! Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Even though this place shows it's age a bit- it was everything we wanted for a family beach vacation.
"You get what you pay for"
07/20/14 wassir Portland, OR
Grabbed a reservation at the City Center for a couple of nights so my dog could enjoy the cool beach weather. If you're looking for a four star experience, keep looking. The City Center is a budget experience at a budget price. Pros: Location - Sited a couple of blocks from the main drag and a couple of block from the Prom, the City Center couldn't be in a better place. Dog friendly - Got a dog, he'll be happy here. Price - Relatively cheap, though I did notice that walk up patrons paid less than I did with my reservation, somewhat aggravating. Cable - The television received 70-80 HD cable channels. Cons: Noisy - My room, 202, was two door down from the office. Sound was barely baffled and I could clearly hear the conversations of people passing by. My favs: "My heart weighs with anger." and "He pushed me down and I was crying." "Where was I?" "You weren't there." The room was tired. My dog spent most of the time in the room sniffing the well-worn carpet. The door didn't have a dead-bolt lock. (Other rooms did. I never discovered why mine didn't). The desk clerks weren't very helpful, though I found the housekeeping staff to be friendly and attentive. Didn't try the indoor pool. It looked small, but people seemed to be enjoying themselves.
"Glad I read reviews"
07/10/14 happyhabit74 Marysville, Washington
The rooms are very small but was fine for my daughter and myself. I was disappointed that I went to the office with an issue and nothing ended up being done about it. I had a family of 6 (in a small 1 queen size room) across from me. Both nights I was there the children were running all over the place, banging on my door and trying to unlock it. I talked with the office and was told that they would speak with the party in the room. The second right was worse. The office staff needs additional training on how to handle customer issues. We felt unsafe and on edge all night long.
07/02/14 Drew C Vancouver, Washington
The hotel had an excellent position . right down the street from the promenade and close to the city center with the shops and resturaunts. The rooms are incredibly small. My room (single queen) was too small to have two people up and walking at the same time. We would have to take turns to get up and do something... When we asked to change rooms, right after we had checked in we were told that they couldn't further accommodate us because we used a third party site for our reservation (price line). Whereas I have ran into problems with rooms purchased through price line before and was never informed of this stipulation by other buisnesses. Seeing as how it was me, my girlfriend and mother we weren't comfortable all sharing a queen bed in an 9x9 glorified closet and the business hadn't given us any other choice, so we were forced to leave and drive home. not to mention the room wasn't even ready to check in to until 3 oclock in the afternoon. With a reservation in place.
06/27/14 Laurarain New Springfield, Ohio
No phone, no clock, television was on the wall of the side of the bed, no nightstand on one side of the bed and very cramped. Roomed smelled of stale smoke. Pool was very small compared to the pictures online. Even with a discounted rate, we could have stayed somewhere nicer for the same price. The only thing we did like was the very short walk to the promenade and beach.
