We enjoyed Astoria so much because of it's beautiful surroundings and laid back, unpretentious romance of a port town. The Norblad Hotel and Hostel was neat, clean, and the rooms large and welcoming. I love the euro-style which just seem to fit the vibe of Astoria! The location was excellent for walking to the main strip and beyond. The only thing I would mention was that the floor in our room creaked, but was easily overlooked.
