8/10 Very Good

Staff was very friendly. Room was pretty clean. Nothing fancy, but looked to be renovated and done nicely. Steps from the beach. Not a lot of parking. Hard to find actual office when we arrived.

Willing to give it a second chance
I really wanted to love this motel. The location was excellent, very central to all Seaside's attractions. The motel itself was no-frills but recently updated, and it was quaint enough in a midcentury sort of way. It was very expensive for what it was. When we checked in, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The man at the desk said that if we needed anything, he'd be happy to help. However, when we asked to swap for an upstairs room, the gentleman at the desk refused, citing some issue with the fact that we booked through Hotels.com, even though it was clear that many of the upstairs rooms were unoccupied. I cut my foot on something while walking on the beach, and I went to the front desk to ask for a bandage. He said he'd bring it to the room, so I went back and waited for at least 30 minutes. Nothing. We decided to find a convenience store, so I let him know not to worry about it. It wasn't an emergency, but a little more attentiveness would have been nice. As it turned out, the weekend we booked was also the weekend of the Hood to Coast relay race, which ends just outside the Ocean Front Motel. Very noisy! This is not the motel's fault, but we were hoping for a quiet weekend at the coast. After the first night, we asked about cancelling our second, but they said they couldn't offer a refund. However, they did offer us a raincheck for a free night's stay which was a decent compromise. We'll be back, and hoping for a better experience.

Great hotel
Staff was amazing. We made an error when we originally booked the stay. The staff was amazing at helping us fix the error we made. Hotel has been recently renovated which gave the rooms a great fresh feeling. Ocean view room had an unrestricted view. It was quiet and its conveniently located to the beach and all the shops.

Poor customer service
I was visiting from Phoenix Arizona and stayed in this motel for 2 nights. Our room was on the first level overlooking the sidewalk and beach which got a lot of traffic. The black out curtain was present but no sheer curtain to allow for some privacy while retaining a view. My attempt to have the situation resolved was met in an unorganized and unprofessional manner. The front desk employee told me he didn’t know what the rooms looked like when I attempted to explain what was lacking. He said he would get back to me but I had a feeling he wouldn’t so I approached a maid to ask if all the rooms were without this sheer curtain and she told me no only ours. The front desk employee had watched me go speak with the maid and then decided to show me a vacant room but had no authority to swap us out. Then called me during breakfast to say he couldn’t give me the room he showed me but another. I said at this rate we are gone for the day and our trip is half over so just provide some sort of discount. He never called back as he stated he would. Upon check out a different front desk employee said the request for a discount was denied but indicated she would try to appeal again and call me back. What kind of lodging has you on a first level with no sheer curtain? This lodging was $221 a night and we weren’t comfortable having the room completely exposed so our time spent in the room was with the black out curtain closed. Very poor customer service and won’t be back.
