For a quick getaway it was great! Open the door and hear the surf- that close! The staff was very considerate. Reasonable prices, pet friendly, clean and convenient to everything. We stayed in the motel portion on the ground floor - parking was good. We had a small fridge and microwave. Would go back for the location alone.

My friend and I stayed here over the weekend and for the price I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The hotel is literally steps from the water and a 15 min bike ride from everything else. The staff was really nice (excluding the person who answered the phone and took our reservation, she was a bit short with words and had a bad attitude), the room was very clean and even though it was a smoking room it didn't smell like smoke at all... actually smelled pretty nice which was a pleasant surprise, beds were comfortable, the pool (even though you have the ocean right there) was actually pretty nice, there was no problem with hot water like in some other reviews and the shower actually had a lot of water pressure, they have an area at the front of the hotel for you to wash off after the beach and they have a cool viewing deck on the second floor you can just chill on.
Overall, we had a great experience here but if your used to upscale 5 star hotels then this might be too small and comfortable for you but if you're there to enjoy the seaside then this place is perfect at a great price.

We went here for our honeymoon 10/12/12 and stayed till 10/16/12. We got the one bedroom condo and still paid half of what everyone else was charging for a regular room. There was a flat screen Tv, the kitchen was stocked with what we needed, everything was clean, we only had one issue. There was a lot of construction going on on the streets...I guess a water pipe was having issues, not the hotels fault but they did have a few bugs in the room. We only saw 2 and we weren't in the room enough to really care. That and they were dead. Id still recommend this place if you're on a budget and love the ocean.

We can see why people rate this motel as terrible. They are the same people who think the Sandcastle is the greatest place on the beach. There are Sandcastle people and there are Seaside people. Just like some wouldn't live on the south side of San Antonio and some wouldn't live on the north side. We love Seaside for what it is, not what it isn't. It's the south side. It's a lot of friendly people out walking their dogs with their baggies in hand. It's families and birthday groups and friendly staff in the office. It's a place where everyone minds their own business and leaves you to yours. It's NOT snobby desk staff who you have to ring to get their attention, visitors who pride themselves on how much their condo costs (instead of how little), an empty pool and empty rooms, and a newspaper rack with no papers available unless you are an owner.

We love our condo in 201, but we have been happy in a plain little room before we started getting this condo. The ceilings are chipped, the floor is cracked, the place is old. Who cares? It's clean and totally bug free and has the most comfortable beds and the perfect views of sunrise, sunset, and the ocean. And it's reasonable. We looked a long time for a better price and didn't touch it for the benefits. And we appreciate the personal touch of Melissa and Terry. Don't let the northsiders chase you away.

My friend and I were looking for a place on the beach that allowed us to bring our dogs. This place was it! We got a 1 bedroom condo which had a king bed in the room and a futon in the living room. Fully stocked kitchen and was clean. We had a great time walking to dogs on the beach which was 2 minutes away! I would recommend this place to anyone on a budget or has a dog that they would like to have travel with them!

Room Tip: Only room with an ocean view is the 3 bedroom penthouse.
