Awesome and friendly customer service!! Room is outdated and small but has great jacuzzi tub and is in a great location! It's in the heart of the shopping areas of Seaside and only about a block to the promenade/beach. Smelled like it had been a smoking room in the past but it had everything we needed for a great night away (microwave, coffee maker, mini fridge, TV). We'd definitely stay there again. Looked like there were some other cool options at the hotel such as small cottages and a house that can be rented and are dog friendly.

Ruth was amazing, she greeted us at our car and even unlocked our room. This was a cute motel, there are sand toys for the kids to play with and a nice selection of DVDs in the office that you can borrow. Rooms are spacious and clean. The rooms are outdated but if you can get past the rustic ocean feel ( which we didn't care about) it was great. The motel is in a great location just next to the aquarium and a short walk to the beach and downtown.

This was a last minute reservation after a previous hotel reservation proved unacceptable. Upon hearing the reasons for our checkin we received a complimentary upgrade because the manager wanted us to have a positive impression of Seaside. Separate bedroom and living space. Comfortable beds, corner gas fireplace, dishes, microwave and a small refrigerator were a great addition, although we only spent one night. A short block's walk to the beach. Partners with 2 local restaurants for discounts of which one, Norma's is nationally recognized. The property has rooms, living suites and individual cottages for booking. The manager (whose name I forget) was warm, welcoming, excited about her job and proud of the facilities. A truly wonderful experience.

This is the third time we have stayed with the Hillcrest inn, and it won't be the last. The best way to describe this hotel is a diamond in the rough. The owners are super friendly. The rooms are comfortable, especially their spa rooms with 2 person jetted tub. Great place to unwind.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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. They let us stay in the room until after the last game. I would recommend the Hillcrest to anyone coming to Seaside for an event, especially with kids.

The owners are delightful - very hospitable, very informational when asked about where to go & how to get there. They couldn't be more welcoming. They are the kind of people you'd like to sit down with and chat with. This is the place to stay - very reasonable, close, convenient & quiet.

"Hosts treat you like you matter"
03/28/15 Rileycoyotes Surrey, BC
It has been a long time since I stayed in a place where the front office staff treated guests as warmly as the two "hosts" at Hillcrest Inn. They had hot beverages and snack cakes in the main office all day long, and were always ready to make touring suggestions, meal tips, and even movie recommendations from their well-stocked DVD collection (there are DVD players in the rooms). Although the furnishings and buildings themselves are a little dated, our room was spacious, comfortable, and *clean*. The location is not beachfront, but it is a short block from the beach and two blocks from the main drag. I'd gladly stay here again.

"Awesome location, great staff, and fantastic prices!"
03/20/15 wannabefolkie a city by a lake, WA
The location, price, and staff of the Hillcrest Inn are great! It's hard to rank these in order of greatness so this is in no particular order. Location: It's one block from the Seaside Aquarium (which we didn't visit this time) and therefore a block from the beach. It's two blocks from Broadway which is the main thoroughfare with shops leading to the turnabout (see that review) and the beach. Price: We ended up booking a dog-friendly mini-suite because it was what was available for us last minute. We don't have a dog but I don't feel like we were paying extra for the type of room. A couple next to us had two dogs. This is a great option for people who don't want to put their dogs in a kennel while they vacation. We are a family of four and were staying over the President's Day weekend and paid $103/night. (see below for room and inn details) Staff: Ruth and Don are so friendly and terrific! I called to make my reservations because that is suggested for the dog-friendly mini-suites. Don was so cheerful when I called to make reservations it was infectious (in a good way, of course!). When we checked in, he was the same and it set a nice tone for our mini-vacation. Later in the day and the rest of our stay, our interaction was with Ruth who was also very friendly and helpful. It was nice just shooting the breeze with her. Room: (see pictures) We stayed in a mini-suite which had a living area with TV, two burners and a small refrigerator, and dishes you can use, a bathroom with tub/shower, and a bedroom with two queen beds. Amenities: Plenty of free parking on the property and on the street, granola bars and other continental type items in the office, and Wi-Fi. Yes, the Wi-Fi was spotty but I don't select accommodations based on Wi-Fi when I'm on vacation. A business trip is different. This was a trip to the beach. We would definitely stay here again! The unit above us was pretty noisy. We were visiting during a high school basketball tournament and the kids above us were up pretty late and apparently everyone decided to shower around midnight. This didn't bother us. Still, I would probably reserve a second floor room or cottage next time. The Hillcrest Inn is not a fancy place but still has a lot to offer. It's perfect for families and others on a budget. Don't expect luxury. You will receive great service, price, and location! It had a living area and bedroom with two beds.

"Very nice stay, friendly and accommodating management"
03/18/15 bsnap Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Our family had an 'emergency' stay here in late Feb. We had an issue with a hotel in Portland (unsafe crib), and called here, at 5 pm on a whim - as we planned on exploring the coast the following day. Management was more than sympathetic with our situation, and was able to give us a great rate in one of the cottages. The cottage was clean and spacious. The dishwasher was great for my daughter's cups and bowls. I would describe the cottage as old fashioned seashore accommodations. No, it is not fancy, but it fits the bill. The heater was a bit loud, and cycled on and off a lot, but that is ok. Location was great, we were one block from the beach.

"We are now Clam Digging and Clam Cleaning Experts"
03/09/15 Laurie C
We started our Oregon Coast vacation March 1st. I had not planned our last two nights until March 4th and by then it was hard to find a place in Seaside. I stumbled on the Hillcrest on Priceline and decided to book it. We were traveling with our two shelties.When we checked in Ruth was there and was so nice and answered all of our questions. We also met Don and they made us feel at home. We were there for clam digging and beach time with the dogs. Don was amazing. He set us up to clean our clams on March 8th after we go our limit. He gave us a lesson and showed us his system to clean clams. I have cleaned many clams before and did not enjoy it but now it is a breeze and fun. Don took time with us and visited with us while we all cleaned clams. When we left we hugged Ruth goodbye. You can't beat the hospitality of the Innkeepers- Ruth and Don. We will be back with the dogs. Thanks

once again Ruth was amazing, They put our name on there reader board, congratulating us on our 15 year anniversary. The room was great, they upgraded our room so we could have a bigger bed and more room. Ruth was so friendly and even gave my wife a big hug when we arrived. We are regulars at the hillcrest and love it there.

"Super Deal-Super Room"
02/16/15 B00GY101 Longview, Washington
Paid 72 a night over Valentine's day for the mini suite. Decent ocean view. Fridge coffee pot and a great shower head. Bed was a little creaky when I tested it out with the wife but the linens were clean and the grounds-spotless-. Ruth is a sweetheart and Don is super friendly. Office coffee was very good.

"Disappointed"
02/15/15 Max P
The hotel says it has Free Wifi? I understand that you probably don't think people care about wifi since people come here for the beach, but seriously, if you say free wifi, then have wifi! I was very disappointed once I saw the wifi was terrible. I do not reccomend this "motel" for people that rely on wifi.

"Clean rooms and excellent service"
10/13/14 nkimperial Franklin, North Carolina
Even though we were staying only 1 night the staff made us feel like to were part of there family. They were very friendly and immediately welcomed us when we arrived. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very nice. This is a older motel, however, it is kept in excellent condition. The morning that we checked out, they gave us a little bag with seashells and sanddollars that they picked up on the beach.

"Friendliest reception in Seaside!"
10/11/14 Madsj
This last minute as we fancied a weekend out from Portland. It was one of the few places with availability as we didn't know we had to book in advance at this time of year. No regrets as this place was great! Friendliest and most helpful reception ever from Ruth- really made to feel welcome and at home. Basic rooms but very clean and just what we needed for a night's rest. Fridge and microwave in the room as well as TV and DVD player in the room- huge dvd library at reception also. Within a 2 minute walk to the beachfront and all the restaurants, bars and shops. Highly recommended- we'll definitely return in the summer.

"Excellent Hospitality, great location and CLEAN!"
10/06/14 shannonm69 Lewiston, Idaho
We stayed here in a mini suite for one night on September 4th. It is a great location just 1 block from the Aquarium in Seaside and the beach. Everyone that works there was super friendly and helpful. They have complimentary beach blankets, beach towels and beach buckets. Don't expect a 5 star hotel as far as luxury accommodations but the rooms are CLEAN, beds are comfortable and the hospitality exceptional. Will definitely stay here again.
