We got a Living Social deal and thought it was great! Clean, amazing ocean view, little kitchenette, large area, fireplace. Make sure to ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor or you will be right where everyone is walking by on the beach. We don't normally spend a lot of time in the room on vacation but we did spend a bit here. They had a table and chairs by the window, which could be opened. We sat and watched the ocean and turned on the fireplace when it got a little cold. The front desk people were very nice and helped answer all our questions about the area and seemed happy doing so. Buy some firewood and have a fire on the beach. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and bars.

We bought a two night living social for this property. We brought two small 5 lb dogs with us. Dogs are charged 20.00 per night each no matter the size. You are also put on the ground floor. We were given room 120. The room should not be rented out. It is right next to the laundry and from 9:00 AM till 9:00 PM the machines are running. They have a high pitched whirring sound that is like an alien invasion from a 1950s movie. The sound cuts through the walls and will give you a headache. The room is run down and very dated. The bed spread and blanket smelled heavily of pet urine. The room had other unpleasant odors overall. If they are charging more for pets you would think that they would clean the carpets and bedding more often in these rooms. The linens are on their last legs. The door has a ripped out chain guard with multiple holes in the trim, like they tried to reset the guard multiple times and finally gave up and removed it. The bathroom has been redone poorly, vinyl base is already loose and flapping open. The CRT TV does not even show the full picture so I am watching a World Cup game without being able to see score on upper left. Pathetic! As a very minimum, these rooms should have a TV that is newer than a 1980s model. The telephone had loud scratchy interference on it that made it unusable. The continental breakfast is a joke. Lousy orange drink that tastes like a sunny D knockoff, a few per packaged muffins and weak coffee. The outside of the building is run down. The best thing that can happen to this place is for it to be bought and razed and a new hotel put in its place. We will never stay here again, and we are looking for another place to stay tonight even though this room is payed for.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay in room 120! Right next to laundry with high pitched whirring sound that cuts through t...

The Living Social two night deal was great. It is supposed to provide an introduction to a business in the hope that you will have a good experience and want to return. That isn't likely to work in our case.

The good stuff first:

The room is OK for the most part. There has been some remodeling, and the bathroom is clean. The bed was fairly comfortable. The access to and view of the ocean is terrific and you are a short walk to the convention center and downtown. There is a sink, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishes and utensils.

The problems:

There are a lot of fit and finish issues with the remodeling. The curtain was torn. The inside of the windows were not clean, including dead flies that had been there for a while. The pillows were flat. The linens and towels seemed thin and in need of replacement. The door chain lock was broken, and apparently for a long time. The door trim to which it was attached was pulled away from the frame. The WiFi was down for quite a while.

The outside of the hotel needs a lot of work. The concrete stairs are broken at the center support posts and the exterior has not been painted in a long, long time.

When I had called to make the reservation I asked for a King bed. When we arrived we were given a room with two queens. When we asked to move, there was only one night available in a King, so we stayed put. I wanted to watch a world cup game on the TV. It was a very old CRT TV with a very low quality picture. We were told that most of the rooms had been changed to flat panel HD TVs, and that they would get one to us, but couldn't say how long it would take. We checked back a few hours later and were told there were none available. Over the two days we peeked into a few rooms that were not occupied or were being cleaned, and saw only old CRT TVs.

The first morning we left a tip for housekeeping, as we always do, and a note asking for decaf coffee. When we returned to the room in the late afternoon, the tip was gone, we had the coffee, but the room had not been cleaned at all. We called the desk who said they would send housekeeping up. A while later they called us back to say housekeeping had left for the day.

They advertise continental breakfast. They had a pot of coffee, orange juice and bananas, which were all good. However, the rest was pre-packaged danish pastries and muffins. This is minor, I suppose, but it just seemed more like some bagged snacks than a real continental breakfast.

Any one of these issues would seem minor, but it all added up to a sense that there is a real lack of organization, attention to detail, and care in the management of this property.

The location and view are great assets that need to be built on.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor have the views, make sure you get an ocean view. Ask about the certainty you will g...

I got a great deal via Living Social=King size room w/ fireplace..Loved the dishes in the room, fridge nearly froze our stuff. Very clean, courteous.
I also had #321. Only complaints would be curtains were in poor repair, tearing from the top from being pulled on, they are 'dark' curtains. Wish they had sheer ones to protect from west sun but could see view without blinding. Most eves had to pull them for that reason(not always prob in cloudy Oregon) and there is no elevator for this bldg. Would not have packed as I did had this been clear on website.

Room Tip: Ask for bottom floor if in this bldg if physically limited-no elevator.

The staff here is excellent! Our room faced the ocean (the only thing missing was a patio) and was very well appointed. Loved having the fireplace in the evening and the wet bar was very handy.
We would definitely stay here again! Only blocks from great dining and shopping.
Beautiful views of the dunes and beach.

After being here for less than two hours we find out that we were knowingly stuck in a room with no wifi, and only on the third call (and a visit to the lobby) that they notified us there was no connection to the Internet.
Then, upon trying to relax we see that BOTH extra blankets are filthy. Not having clean blankets one would turn the heat up, but wait... the fireplace doesn't work.
Along with the already long list of issues, the clock in one of the rooms is broken, and there are NO screens in the Windows to enjoy the beautiful beach air. To be continued. ..
