We absolutely loved this location! You cannot get a room closer to the breaking waves in Seaside. Most oceanfront hotels are separated from the water by the prom, a field of seagrass and then the wide sandy beach. The Lanai is separated from the water by a narrow rock beach. At high tide, it was almost as if the waves were crashing up below our balcony. We came to Seaside to watch the winter waves and we found the best place for it. We loved watching the surfers directly in front of our room (we saw in a guide that this cove is one of the top surfing spots in Oregon). We also enjoyed looking at the lights of Seaside off in the distance. We liked the fact that this is a smaller, less crowded hotel. We enjoyed being in a residential district away from the main tourist area. We walked to and from town numerous times - getting there was more than half the fun.
Each suite in the Lanai is individually owned. Consequently, each unit is decorated differently. The web site has numerous photos of each suite. Ours was exactly as advertised (in fact, it was better: the web site did not show the large bathroom with a handy storage area under the counter). Sure, our suite could use a few updates and a new tv - but it would be absurd to complain at this price: it was the cheapest ocean front room we could find in Seaside. When you factor in free wifi and parking, this is an outstanding value.
We stayed 4 nights including New Years Eve. The hosts and staff were very friendly and helpful. This is clean, basic and very reasonably priced accomodation in a fantastic location. We will be back!
