“Don't Tell Everyone - Best cottage & crew ever!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

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!!!

Room Tip: Smoking area steps from door, beach within a block and shopping within walking distance.

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.

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.

Older place but comfortable and clean with both cottages and rooms. All non-smoking, several pet friendly. Walking distance (two blocks, did not use car for three days) to fun downtown with lots of food, drink and shopping, and just a block off the beach. All very convenient. Don (retired Marine) and Ruth were superb hosts, most helpful, even with library of movie DVDs. And if you like to clam or surf fish, Don is delighted to advise and even guide. We stayed in second floor "Sweet Retreat", comfortable, quiet and very affordable but cramped even for two smaller people and one suitcase. However, it did have a view of the beach from bedroom and sitting room. Cottages look to be large and very comfortable--but wrong angle for beach view. Did not get look at rooms, but expect like everything else they would be most acceptable. We very much enjoyed our mini-vacation to dig clams, and will be back!!

Room Tip: There is a dandy website that shows rooms and includes all kinds of information.

We stayed at Hillcreast inn May 14. It was a great experience. Before we came out I talked to Jay on the phone and he was so full if information. When we arrived we were greeted by Ruth, what a sweet person. Ruth answered all our questions and then some. We arrived and it was 90 degrees ( record ) our room didn't have an air conditioner, and we were a little concerned. We barely got to or room and Ruth called and up graded us to an air conditioning room. On our way out early the next morning Ruth caught us and sent us off with sand dollars she picked up on her morning run, and some breakfast pastries.

First off, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Really lovely couple that went out of their way to make sure we found the room we wanted for the price (which couldn't be beat), and were comfortable. They recommended all the best places to eat and drink in town and were so helpful. The room we chose was clean and cute. Nothing fancy, but perfect for one night in town. All of the restaurants, bars and shops were within walking distance. We will definitely be staying here again, and will recommend to friends and family.
