"Quaint, almost like at home"
The cottage was good for what we needed except it didn't have air conditioning or fans and the window doesn't open. If you want to have both your doors open you could get a breeze. I liked the kitchen. The office however smelled like dogs. The best part was that is was right there on the beach. no need to get in the car or get sand in the car. Early […] morning or late walks were extremely convenient Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was in very much needed care. Needed to be updated. Carpet was stained from previous water in the bathroom that was on the floor which leaked on to.Was in a great location right on the beach and one street over from the shopping stores. Room did have a smell to it but was tolerable. Lady that worked at the counter was very helpful in trying to […] locate were to find items we were looking for.

Excellent service with the option to bump up to a better room and view.I would personally give your motel an extra star on your rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was ocean front as advertised -- 5 feet from Promenade. I was afraid this would make it noisy, but that wasn't a problem. Everything worked fine, except wifi signal did not extend into our room -- worked OK in the parking lot. (Management needs to buy a better router.)Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was friendly and made recommendations for dinner and activities. The hotel itself was like a blast back to 1960. Pink tile in the bathroom. We only had a one night trip. After checking out we went to the museum next door. When we came back to our car, our pillows were in a bag on the trunk. Oop! Thanks for that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This motel is in a terrific location, but it is dated and priced too high for what they offer. Our "suite" included an extra bedroom which was very dark and dingy. We did not use it, even though we had asked for two beds. Coffee maker sat in microwave that sat on refrigerator and there was no water available closeby and no room in bathroom for coffee […] maker. There was one envelope of coffee and when my sister asked if we could have more the receptionist said she only had one at her desk and someone would bring us some--never happened. I definitely would not stay here again. By the way, have you ever stayed in a motel or hotel without a telephone, shampoo, Kleenex??? This was a first. Guess we should be grateful that they provided soap. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms have an awesome view and a great location. only complaints are no hand soap provided and the walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbors clearly. overall i would go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful view, old motel"
Beautiful view. If you are used to staying at higher end properties this motel will not be to your standards. The view is outstanding for the price but the rooms are very outdated. Property manager Judy is great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for what we needed"
My fiancée and I needed a night away from everything, we hadnt taken a trip in awhile. It was last minute and this was the only place in our budget. We arrived and were checked in right away - the lady at the front desk was extremely helpful. Our room was clean and had everything we might need. I really liked that it was also right by everything in […] downtown seaside. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant staff and right on the beach"
The staff is wonderful but the room was not. We got this motel room just to have a place to rest out heads not to live in but there was a few issues with the room. There was mold around the kitchen sink and on the counter tiles. Mold was also present in the shower(no tub), shower curtain and black mold on the ceiling. The beds were like any motel bed […] and were fine. There was no air conditioning and how the room was positioned there was no breeze and the room was hot. Could not leave back door open due to no screen and front screen door would not open for a breeze. Some windows were missing screens so could not leave them open so the room had a stale smell. I wouldn't recommend this room if you have little children or plan on staying in the hotel most of your trip but if nothing was available I might stay here again. The info stated it had a DVD player but none was present when we stayed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Take what you canget"
Good stuff first! Location and access to the Beach was great. Staff was more than friendly and accomadating. Close to all shops and downtown interests. Now the bad....A bit spendy at $150 but when everyone else is willing to pay that much, you go with the flow. Some strange odors were detectable but then again I have a dog nose and it could use some […] updating. I'm sure it's hard to keep the room up to standard when it is booked everyday during the summer months and the next occupant wants to get into the room as soon as possible. If you are looking for "nicey nicey" room, go to the Rivers Edge and pay $200. If you want convenience and a place to lay your head and a great view. Stay here.

"Last hotel available for our dates."
We booked this hotel because it was the only one left with available rooms. We didn't spend much time in our room since the beach was right there and the weather was great. I would not go back to this hotel. It is in need of updating and a good cleaning. I am not really that fussy of a person, but this hotel was pretty disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best part is that it is right on the beach."
No air conditioning. Nothing fancy but did include small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Ocean Front Motel was a great location for access to everything in Seaside. The beach and the aquarium were right out the door and shopping was just around the corner. The staff was very accommodating and courteous. We had a kitchenette unit on the end with parking right in front of the door for easy unloading and loading of the car. We were also […] allowed to leave the car in the parking lot after check-out to stay in town for a few more hours before heading home to Washington. The kitchen could have been a little better equipped, as we ate most of our meals in, but we managed with only 1 frying pan, 1 small sauce pan and a mixed assortment of dishes and tableware. The unit was very reasonably priced and we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I don't suggest it"
The beds were uncomfy and the room smelled like urine. The bathroom was quite frightening too. It needs a major upgrade. The internet was worse than dial up, and probably because its stealing it from the hotel across the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too close to the Prom!"
Room not cleaned well Told the ladies at the desk. Very apologetic...much proved next time around. :) Coffee pot didn't get hot. Took it to office next morning and we were given one that worked. No AC and the only window that could be opened was behind the heavy curtain. Paid more for this hotel than for any other hotels on our 3 week trip. Noisy outside […] our window in the evenings. Skateboarders and firecrackers kept us awake the first night. Very firm bed. Be sure to bring your own shampoo and hair dryer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Not very clean but friendly attentive staff - rooms were old and not well cared forGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed being in the heart of Seaside right on the beach. Friendly check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very dirty old motel. Very rude staff."
Our experience was very awful. We drove 5 hours for what should have been a nice 2 day vacation to seaside. What we got was a old motel that was very dirty. Staff was not so kind themseleves.Genuine Expedia guest review
Seaside-GREAT, hotel-NEVER AGAIN. The location was right on the beach for a great view, parking was terrible. Paid just under $150 for our room for one night but I have stayed at MUCH nicer motels for half that price. The main reason for choosing this motel was they didn't have a minimum night stay and had a room available for my daughter and me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the money"
First the no air conditioning, the place was dingy and not clean. The wii fii was down the whole time, so they say. I couldn't wait to leave so not worth the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed the layout of the suite."
The stay was good, the staff friendly, no loud noises. rooms clean although sheets not changed. Unfortunitly coming in from the fresh smell of outside the motel lobby held the smell of an overfilled litter box.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice View,but that's it!"
Everything about this motel was horrible! It's long over due for a update. Everything from dirty sheets to mold in the shower. From non working light sockets and lights. The advertisement for the room is conceiving, there was no wifi which was from the hotel next to us! It had no kitchen,no couches, no BBQ grills. All which the description to our room […] said it had. In many cases I wouldn't recommend this room to a single person. Did I fail to mention the bums digging through the trash?!

"All about the location"
It has passed its prime but it directly on the beach and walkable to any restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we enjoyed our short stay. Although were a bit nervous about the group of people RIGHT outside our ground floor window. And the shower curtain hadn't been washed (or dry) for quite some time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the prom!"
It was a small but comfortable room with a window overlooking the promenade. Perfect for ocean and people watching!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
enjoyed a lot that is all i have to say, thank youGenuine Expedia guest review
I was promised two queen beds both with ocean view .Only one had ocen view the other was in a back room!!!. I was very disspointed. I dont think I WILL USE HOTEL . COM AGAINGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great view and a good price. Nothing fancy. I would however bring my own dvd player next time lol.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful View but no Wifi"
Last minute stay during a busy weekend when there was a snafu with our original reservation. The door on the bedroom was nice so the kids could go to sleep while the adults were awake in the main room. Facilities show their age but the room was clean and well-kept. The beds were firm and the pillows were flat, which is personally how we love it but […] others may not. Wifi wasn't working, which was a big disappointment. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the only good thing"
The only thing this place has going for it is the location, other than that it was a dirty, smelly old motel. We came through town unexpectedly and this was all that was available so we had no choice but to stay otherwise I would have left! Soooo dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oldie but a goodie"
I like to stay at the 4 star hotels as much as the next guy, but this place wasn't as terrible as the reviews said. It filled a purpose- overnight on the way South. The room was dated, but clean. I could see staying here for a few days. The hotel is right on the beach, pretty much all of the rooms have a water view of some sort. Ours had an awesome […] view. Room 16 has a separate bedroom and a fully stocked kitchenette. The front staff gal was super nice too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Acean Front Motel - Seaside, OR"
Old motel, nice ocean view...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good fit for one night trip on Spring Break"
The office seemed to have an odor similar to cat urine.....made me a bit leary when I checked in; however, the room, while very dated, was clean and included the necessities; small fridge, microwave. For the price, it was a good fit!!Genuine Expedia guest review
I was the only occupant at this facility so the parking was excellent. BUT, there are birds above the parking area, so in the morning my car was covered in bird poop. They did have a hose so I could wash my car off. The office smelled liked a really dirty dog. The room was in a perfect spot right on the Seaside promenade, but not so clean, and a few […] stray hairs in the shower and on the floor. I know that happens, but it kind of freaked me out. No shampoo or hair dryer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"On the beach"
Not too bad for a divey hotel. Decently priced and close to downtown. I mean it's one street over from the shilo that's in the middle of downtown. Only wierd thing is you have to pay $0.75 for shampoo. Usually that's included in your hotel amenities. Also 3 out of 6 lights did not work. Again for the price it wasn't bad. It was a bed and a bathroom […] and a place to stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We ended up not staying at the Ocean Front Motel. When we arrived and went into the office, the office smelled so bad of wet, dirty dogs that we were turned off right away. The office gal was very friendly and helpful though. We realized that the motel is older but they really need to make the appearance more inviting especially with the other hotels/motels […] right around them. All 4 of us recommend that the office be cleaned up and or what ever is needed to get rid of the smell. It is really a turnoff. :( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is great, but disappointed in the room."
Reservation problem but they were nice in working it out. Walking distance to everything, and right on the beach, but desperately needs updating. Wanted to buy our own sheets and cleaners. :/Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Ocean View"
We had a very nice room and an excellent Ocean View. We enjoy our time and are expect to stay their again in the near future.Genuine Expedia guest review
TV too small to watch, room was either to hot or cold bad thermostat, I could get a better mattress from a used store. Nice to see cigarette butts all over outside when we got up next day. Hard falling to sleep while listening to TV from next room. Out side overall look was dirty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outdated, no phone, depressing environment"
No wi-fi, no phone, old and smelly, nice clerk who tried to be helpful .. We couldn't wait to get out of there.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a terrible hotel. It said it was a full kitchen unit and it was minus the dishwasher however there were no glasses only coffee cups. 1 frying pan that would only fit an egg. I pot that I would not give my dog water out of. No shampoo or conditioner. The room smelled of bag cigars and smoke. The carpet was so gross I was afraid to take my shoes […] off.

"Nice older Motel right at beach"
I state this is an older motel because some people don't want that. If you are looking for elegant with pool , exercise room ect. this is not for you. However if you are looking for a nice clean place for you family to stay with a view of the ocean and close to all down town this is it. We had a great time watching the ocean, walking on the beach, shopping […] and sight seeing! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Too old room."
Too old but very close to beach. Nice reception service but too small room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty, dated motel"
Horrible motel. The toilet made an awful noise every 3 minutes. The oceanview is nice but because it is right on the promenade you can't keep the blinds open if you want any privacy. It's very dated and the box spring had noticeable stains all over it. I would not recommend this motel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One of the cheaper ones right on the beach"
Perfect location- next to the acquarium (feed the seals!) right on the beach- amazing views. Fires allowed on the beach and most places sell bundles of firewood. Hotel is old but clean- we had a suite that had a second bedroom-fridge-microwave and a shower (no tub). Spent hours walking around the promenade - lots of food choices and shopping. You must […] buy shampoo at front desk (not provided) Only complaint was there was no air conditioning so room was hot- only a small window over beach which meant having to keep front door open to have air flow (safety concern) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I love rustic. I didn't mind at all that we we're put into one of the little one bedroom brick cottages, circa 1950. ....behind the motel that has ocean views...basically, in the parking area. We arrived late, tired for one night. 10:30 pm. What I did mind was the dirt and rust on the fridge, the lock that didn't work, but most especially the absolutely […] disgusting condition of the bed spring.....brown and yellow stains everywhere. I didn't dare look at the mattress. The sheets looked cleaned, so I just tried to go to sleep. Not worth the "deal" I thought I was getting. Woman at front desk was friendly....but owner needs to be decent ....buy a new bed spring and clean the place up. A real disappointment and waste of money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The room was very large and clean. The room had a lovely view of the beach from the window. The price was great and the people at the front desk very nice and helpful. Also, very close to the downtown area with many different atractions.

I knew this was an older motel and to not expect some of the amenities that you might get at other places. I reserved a non-smoking room, which I did get. Unfortunately, the room next door with the connecting door to mine was not. The cigarette smoke from the room next door got so overwhelming at one point, I had to go outside just so I could breathe!! It did finally get better when the occupants next door went to bed at 1am, but by that point the room I was staying in smelled of cigarette smoke too!! Lesson learned, when requesting non-smoking room, make sure surrounding rooms are non-smoking as well.

Great prices last time and stayed in room #22 up top and was perfect with view, this time stayed in the white cottage and was very small and bed was hard as a rock and not worth the price . Would still come back.
"Time Machine with a View"
07/30/14 Janellelis Spokane, Washington
The room was very large and had a great view of the ocean. Not too much updating done, besides the flat screen TV. It did have a funky stale smell, probably from the wood paneling. The bathroom was the worst, the floor was disgusting, the shower was dirty and dingy, my teenage kids refused to use the shower.
07/16/14 holly h Portland, Oregon
Paper thin walls, heavy solid doors slamming goin on, noisy motel guests don't consider anyone else is staying here. everything is bolted down against thieves, but who would want to take any of this, really? The bed caves in the center the pillows are stuffed with bark and coconut shells, headache, backache. 125 bucks a night, and there is an oceanfront view for sure, but there may be a sizable blob of dog doo on the motel grass right there in front of yr window. Nobody cares. this place is very grim and grossly overpriced. You don't want to stay here. Not here. Stains on the bedding, sheets that do not properly fit the mattress. Be better to stay at some lesser expensive place a few blocks from the ocean front than this dive.
"Will stay again, but..."

We normally stay in the #9 cabin. This time was in an ocean front room. The room was clean and the view is wonderful. My only complaint is if I'm paying almost $150 a night, I shouldn't have to pay for shampoo and conditioner when all the other hotels supply it for free.
"Only thing good was view and comfortable bed"
03/04/14 Nanizl Portland, Oregon
Felt like I was in section 8. Room smelled old and bathroom had tape on the walls and rust stains under the sink . We arrived and was told their computer crashed and was asked if we wanted an upgrade to an upper level floor since they had given our room to someone else. We really had no choice. If that was an upgrade, I couldn't image what the lower level would have been like. The walls are so thin you could have a conversation with the people next to you. The doors to all the rooms close so loud it sounds like a bomb everytime one is shut. Didn't even supply shampoo. Called to have coffee packet delivered to room and never was. We found a 20% off the 2nd night in a Seaside coupon book and they wouldn't honor it. Their excuse was that they already had given us an upgrade and paid $10 less then we should have for the orginal booking. All in all we paid about $73 bucks a night which was far too much for those rooms. Never again!!!! Rockaway has a great budget place ocean front for $70 a night (25% off winter coupon online). Surfside Resort. No comparsion, way better.

The motel is located right on the boardwalk next to the aquarium, which was excellent. Our room or shall I say little apartment was excellent!. We had a full kitchen, bedroom with queen bed, as well as one in the living room, had a great view of the ocean and everyone on the beach. Is the motel older? Well yeah probably one of the oldest on the boardwalk, but that adds to the charm! and the location is excellent for everyone to go separate directions to have fun!. The office staff were very friendly as well. Have stayed in many 5 star hotels usually in vegas, but the oceanfront is a perfect place to stay while in seaside we don't go to seaside to marvel at the room amenities we go there to enjoy the ocean and the busyness and fun going on outdoors!
"Filthy, old & terrible. Ruined our trip"
We arrived to find a room the size of my closet for two adults and two kids. Absolute filth! Smelt so horrible my kids started to get sick. Pillows stained! We were offered another room. Smelt better but we left the next day after watching bugs crawl into the holes in the fall that meets the walls. Ruined our trip we drove four hours for! We got so sick! I wouldn't let my dog sleep there! My husband is a construction worker and said he's never stayed in a place so distgusting! I was sooo upset!! Don't do it the pictures are a complete lie!!!!
"great ocean view"
10/14/13 850gale bellingham
Best value on Boardwalk, the only motels/ hotels with similar proximity to the ocean cost considerably more.. Friendly staff even offered a fresh home made muffin .Watch and hear the ocean or step outside onto the sand.Great family motel as the aquarium is on one side and kids activities of Seaside on the other side.Both upper and lower rooms offer great ocean views, upper rooms more privacy if that is what you want.Rooms slightly dated but if we wanted all the comforts of home we would have stayed home. Definitely will be back
