"More then expected"
We weren't expecting much checking in last minute and the price was the lowest in town (at that point). The rooms are average, But the 2 ladies at the front desk were the most hospitable and accommodating we have ever encountered. They are the ones that made our stay. We would absolutely choose to go back there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hillcrest Inn Hello, Ashley from Idaho Thank you for your kind comments. We love visitors and hope to see you again. Thank you again! Best regards, Ruth, Missy, Terri and Don
The staff gave incredible service, going above and beyond for us. They waited up late for us and gave us a huge, beautiful room. They were always friendly and helpful - definitely putting the guests first! The hotel was a lot nicer than I expected. Exceptionally clean. The location was great: half a block from the beach (which we could see from our […] room) and half a block from great restaurants, the candyman, and the main street. I would definitely stay at Hillcrest again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A stay at Seaside Beach"
This is one amazing place because the setting has a wide variety of facilities for two to sixteen people. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. There are beach toys and towels available for children. The staff was extremely helpful giving us a tour then some advice about activities and when was a good time to see them. For example, the aquarium […] opened at 9 and the seals are hungry and interactive. Great advice on nearby beaches as well. I would recommend this hotel/resort for small family vacations to special life events like a graduation or wedding. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A home away from home"
The four of us stayed here for a night whilst passing through Seaside and honestly couldn't have asked for more! We were treated so kindly and generously by the hotel owners, who went out of their way to warmly welcome us during our short stay. The hotel itself is situated right next to some lovely little restaurants and one block from the beach - perfect. […] If we ever make it back to Seaside we'll be booking a room with Hillcrest Inn without hesitation! Thank you so much for having us! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The perfect little getaway!"
We could not have had a nicer time then staying at Hillcrest. The staff is wonderful, the room was clean, the location could not be better. This was our first vacation since having our two babies and they had a great time too. Hillcrest was ready for our family stay, they have sand toys, wagons, little beach chairs for the kids, beach towels and blankets. […] We loaded up the stroller and headed to the beach which is only two blocks away. It was nice not to bring all that stuff from home. Also the kids don't get hot chocolate at home but they had a little coco and coffee table in the office so the kids got coco in the mornings and they thought it was such a treat. They were so excited to go over and get a cup of chocolate. It was special and they loved it! So many more great things I could say but I will leave you with this. Hillcrest Inn is officially our little getaway destination and we are going to start getaway on a regular basis. Everyone needs a little downtime and a trip to the beach and Hillcrest is perfect!

"Great service, but run down 2-star hotel"
I am at a complete loss to understand why all the other reviews are 5 star reviews, unless they were done by friends of the owners. Plus it is rated as the #6 hotel in Seaside on Tripadvisor. Both ratings are absolutely crazy. The service was great and maybe this is where the great reviews come from, but the hotel itself is totally run down. Dingy, […] dirty, smelly, run down. It is a 2-star quality property AT BEST. They do their best to put lipstick on a pig; the place needs a complete overhaul. Then again, it's priced cheaper too. Just know you're getting what you pay for - cheap price = cheap, run down hotel. Again, the staff are really nice, so I feel bad leaving this very accurate review, but I don't want to see other travelers bamboozled like I was. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hillcrest Inn Thank you, "Verified Traveller" for choosing to stay with us and thantk you for taking the time to leave us a review. Of course, we are pleased that you found the service to be "great" and, it goes without saying, we are so disappointed that you found the Hillcrest Inn failing on so many other points. Besides mentioning our prime location and the quaintness of the property, many of our guests also comment on how extremely clean they find the rooms to be. In fact, an onsite review of the Hillcrest Inn conducted on 4/16/14 by one of the major travel agencies for their travel guide brought the following comment, "Your housekeepers are doing a wonderful job of keeping the rooms clean - I found no deficiencies." We realize that the Hillcrest Inn is not brand new - in fact, we are proud to say we have been in operation since the 1930s. Though our Cottages were built decades ago they have been upgraded to meet contemporary standards - including air-conditioning and full-sized kitchen appliances. Our newest building, was built in 1996 and has gas-log fireplaces, kitchenettes, air-conditioning and large in-room spa tubs. We hope you give us another chance some time in the future to see if we can meet or exceed your expectations. Also, worth mentioning, is that we do not solicit online reviews from any of our guests - all reviews are strictly guest generated. Again, thank you, "Verified Traveller" and we do hope to get one more chance to make your stay with us a comfortable one. Respectfully, Jay (owner)
"Our Seaside visit with our 3 grandchildren."
The cottage we stayed in was a two bedroom house with plenty of room for everyone. My wife and I will be retiring in a few years and would love to find a cottage like this. We usually check out early, but the cottage was so nice we stayed a few hours longer.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hillcrest Inn Tom from Little Rock...thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking the time to leave us such kind words. We love our 2-bedroom cottages with the full kitchens - many of our guests stay days at a time and feel just as you do - they want to stay longer. We look forward to your next visit - perhaps when you've retired and can spend some quality time at the beach. Best regards, Ruth, Don and Jay

"Awesome room and service"
We had spent a night at another motel that was horrible. Needless to say, we could not stay another night there. We decided to give hillcrest a try. The staff is very friendly and helpful and even let us check in very early and gave us the option to check out late if we wanted. Our room had a 2 person spa in it and a fireplace. Very romantic and cozy. […] The beds are memory foam and gave us a good nights rest. Loved our stay at hillcrest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super friendly hotel next to the aquarium!"
My boyfriend and I went to seaside to celebrate his birthday and spring break. We were on a bit of a budget and so I found Hillcrest. My boyfriend wasn't sold on the place upon arriving but by the end of the weekend he was in love with it and said we would be going back to Hillcrest. The service was outstanding and the manager was so sweet and helpful. […] They had stuff to help us start our fire and even let us borrow a wagon and ax for the night for all of our fire wood. They also had movies to borrow and fee snacks in the office. Hillcrest is only a couple blocks away from the main st so we just walked everywhere and it's right next to the aquarium. We had a great weekend getaway and are super happy we went to Hillcrest. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to everything but a bit run down"
The hotel is a bit older so it doesn't look like much from the outside, and the room had a bit of wear and tear on it; nothing outrageous if you're not a perfectionist. For the price, the location is outstanding. It is just a couple of blocks down from the beach and a few blocks from the epicenter of downtown seaside. Staff was very friendly, they were […] also were very knowledgeable about the best places to eat, where to to go, etc. We rented to the jacuzzi sweet because that's all they had left on a last minute reservation. The jacuzzi is pretty uncomfortable to sit in and you are not allowed to use the jets after 10pm. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The staff was wonderful. We were in town for my daughter's basketball tournament. They were extremely interested and supportive and even came to some of the games.

"WE WILL BE BACK"
08/18/14 Miranda J
From my very first phone call the staff was amazing. I use "staff" loosely as Ruth treated everyone as if they were family. She was there to help with anything we needed. There are a few small bungalow style beach houses with a courtyard and a beautiful house to rent next door. Lawn games, a sauna, jetted tubs, beach blankets and towels, DVDs to borrow as well as games for those drizzly days. They have shovels for digging fire pits, grills and even charcoal. It's quiet and lovely. Thank you Hillcrest Inn.
"Great spot, nice staff, clean rooms."
08/12/14 WMG_Traveller London, United Kingdom
We stayed here for one night in August. The hotel doesn't look that much from the outside.. who cares? The room was clean, the staff very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect. 1 block to the beach, a few blocks into the main town. We stayed in the small room with no shower. We knew what it was when we were booking it and it was perfectly fine. There was a toilet in there and a bed and not much more space. But that's exactly how it's advertised and it's cheaper because of that. Perfectly good for a nights sleep. If you are someone who spends all your time in your room whilst on holidays (unsure why you would) then maybe not the best room for you!
"Clean and comfy"
Well, went to seaside for the day and decided to try to find a room. Found one here at Hillcrest Inn. Don't let the exterior scare you away. It's a comfy and CLEAN hotel. But, it's Ruth that makes you want to stay. My goodness where can we clone more of Ruth in our world! Come here. You won't be disappointed.
"Comfortable, convenient, and clean"
08/02/14 LoveCreatureComfort Seattle, Washington
This family-oriented hotel was very reasonable in price and well located. It was just a short walk to the beach and a nice walkway along the beach. The hotel owners are very helpful and friendly. The one suggestion that we have (and we wrote this on the comment card) was to leave more bars of soap in the hotel room--by the time that we realized that we had only one small bar for sink and shower, it was too late to call the office for more. Other than that, it was very clean, everything worked, and yes, we would stay at the Hillcrest Inn again.
"Great place, great hospitality! "
07/27/14 Bree W
This place was wonderful! My husband and I decided to take a trip down the coast and came across this place to stay for the night. It was close to the ocean, close to everything downtown, the room we stayed in was wonderful and clean, and the best part was the wonderful hospitality from the owners! Ruth took care of us and was more than accommodating making sure we had everything we needed with a smile on her face! Would definitely stay here again and recommend for anyone looking for a place to stay!
"Amazing hotel, location, and owner! "
07/25/14 WanderingAdventures Springfield, Missouri
Hands down, this is the best hotel we've ever stayed in. The room is immaculate, the grounds are beautifully maintained, downtown Seaside and the beach are a mere minutes' walk, and the owners are the most lovely people you'll ever meet! We went to the beach for the evening, and the owner, Ruth, brought us a blanket to take with us. Once we got back, we were soaking wet, cold, and covered in sand. She helped us rinse off and brought us towels and then turned on the sauna so we could warm up! Later on, we got hot chocolate and cookies in the lobby and had a lovely chat. We've never had this much hospitality and generally niceness at a hotel before. If we could rate this MUCH HIGHER, we would. Would definitely stay here again!
"Great facility with a wonderful owner!"
07/22/14 AlB1957 Eau Claire, Wisconsin
We are budget-wise travelers and stayed at the Hillcrest Inn on a recent trip to the Oregon Coast. It was a wonderful place to stay. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. Plus, Ruth (the owner) was extremely helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We would definitely stay at the Hillcrest again.
"Don't Tell Everyone - Best cottage & crew ever!!!"
07/16/14 Cheryl S Lynnwood, Washington
Was apprehensive about what I would find at the 2 bedroom cottage we rented - the photo showed a smallish room with old style tv, but it would serve our needs and give us more space than a 2 queen bed room which is the standard offering. Was AMAZED at the cute, roomy cottage and it's comfort and cleanliness~~~~ and the staff was all OUTSTANDING!!! Could not get the TV to work (3 remotes) so called the desk after hours and the man who came over looked and looked and figured out the previous folk had taken the cables with them... "must have been playing one of those games"... no big deal, within minutes he had another set connected! And clean!!! My goodness it was clean plus!!! Quirky like a beach cottage should be and totally fun!!!! Don't tell everyone... we want to go back but there are only 3 cottages, and they are the pet friendly, so probably go fast. Office has books and DVDs to take along and offers coffee and hot chocolate, with whipped cream!, and pastries and cookies .... Water was great hot and shower head was good!!! Plenty of towels and kitchen had toaster, microwave, full fridge, cute old stove... and the greatest heater/air conditioner - very impressed!!!
""Park and walk""
07/12/14 Larry R Arapaho
We stayed here for three nights while on a motorcycle trip and just loved the place. We did chose one of the small rooms but it had everything we needed and it was nice. The staff was just wonderful to us, if you needed anything for your stay they would help you out. They have a great location for walking to eat or shop.
"Cozy for a beach stay"
07/07/14 joyclark5 Little Rock, Arkansas
This is a very clean hotel, that has an inviting atmosphere. Our room was a queen, with a large whirlpool tub, and a gas fireplace. We also had coffeemaker, microwave, and fridge. There were plenty of towels, and really nice personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. The bed was quite comfy, and there were extra pillows. Our room was upstairs, and very quiet. Not much of a view, but within easy walking distance of beach, restaurants, and shops. I would definitely stay here when in Seaside.
