“Maybe it's just me, but...”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

I'm not sure what others have found so special about Lanai. (Perhaps a comparison with other lodgings in the area explains it.) Our experience was that the accommodations were antiquated and lacking the quality of other accommodations along the coast: the floor in our room shook every time the people in the next room moved about; the normal, complementary aspects of even a hotel room were missing; the bed was barely large enough for two (it was not even a queen, much less a king); the office closes down at 8 PM so if you need anything after that, you're out of luck; etc. Yes, the view is great, and the surf is soothing with an open door, but that is available with any lodging on the coast, facing the beach. Fortunately, it is close enough to Seaside to get there easily by car. One can also enjoy long walks along the beach, which is indeed beautiful. A beautiful setting indeed, but not the best accommodation to enjoy it. Wifi and parking included, but no breakfast? (Also note: the pool is miniscule and if you want to do any fitness activity, you're on your own!)

Hello ODOT,
Sorry to hear your accommodations did not meet your expectations. We are
working hard to bring all the individually owned units to a high level of
guest satisfaction. Every unit has a full size queen size bed and many are
brand new. Other than a free breakfast and an on-site fitness center, your
room should have had everything a beach rental should have and more
including a kitchenette. The on site managers are available after hours by
dialing "0" and office hours have been extended until 10pm for the summer
time. Thank you for your business and input on how we can do better.

Was so excited to stay in Seaside for the 4th of July, and was happy to be close enough to see the fireworks, but far enough away to escape the busy crowds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They directed us to a local pub that had good food and a friendly staff, as well. The hotel is right beside the ocean with lights that highlight the waves at night, loved that! We enjoyed a bonfire on the beach, while watching the fireworks, best firework show ever!! Price was decent, and the heated outdoor pool was a hit with the kids. We'll be staying again next year:)

Hi Christy,
We are more than happy that you were able to join us and celebrate your
4th with us here at the Lanai. Many other guests also mentioned that the
firework show was the best they'd ever seen. There are not too many
places that you can visit and have a bonfire on the beach and watch
fireworks all at the same time. Our big lights off the back of the
building are always a favorite by all. We look forward to seeing
you again during your next visit.Thank you for your review and
sharing your experience.

we stayed in unit 33, for just 1 night (jun 28, 2013) and wished I could have stayed longer!
Our unit was beautiful and the view was breathtaking! Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful (since this was my first visit to seaside). I will definitely be back, next time for a longer stay.

Hello from the Lanai,
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Sometimes one night
is just not enough. Perhaps you can stay with us a little longer during
your next visit to our area. I agree, unit #33 is very nice and the view
is breathtaking. We never get enough of it. Thank you so much for your
review and we look forward to seeing you again.

Our first trip to the Lanai was last summer. We stayed in unit 33 and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to make this a yearly thing and we returned again to stay from June 28th through the 30th. This time we stayed in unit 45 and just like last year it did not disappoint. There is nothing that my daughter and I enjoy more than going to the beach. This hotel has spectacular condos with ocean views where you can sit on your private lanai, listening and watching the waves crash no more than 80 feet away. Talk about a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world around us. If I can retire today and spend the rest of my days doing just that I would do it in a heartbeat. We can't wait to come back! P.S. my daughter LOVES the out door pool!

Always a little leery of booking online since what you see isn't always what you get in person. But was extremely happy with this booking. Although we were told that the units were built originally in the late '50's, you simply couldn't tell they were that old. The whole place had been updated beautifully We stayed in unit #37 which was nicely appointed. We loved our view of the ocean and the surfers! It was so relaxing to be able to sit on the lanai and watch as the waves came in. Close enough able to walk to the more touristy areas but wasn't crowded and noisy as staying closer would have been. WE WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN!

Room Tip: Rating on restaurant and fitness center say average simply because we never visited either area; if...

Hello,
Thank you so much for staying with us here at the Lanai and for your
review. Unit #37 is a beautiful unit with lots of nice updates. You
are so right about being able to go into town and do the touristy things and then come back out
here to the cove and relax and watch the waves and surfers. We look
forward to seeing you again during your next stay with us.

We come and stay at the Lanai every year for our sons birthday. This is by far the best and least expensive place to stay. It is about a mile away from downtown seaside, but you still have the ocean at your fingertips with their beachfront rooms. There are 2 things that I dislike, one is the beds need updated, not very comfortable at all, and to two, there needs to be air conditioning. It can get pretty muggy during the night.
