Atomic Motel
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in Astoria
Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

This is an older hotel in astoria. The hotel is very conviently located within walking distance to piers and downtown. The staff was extremely friendly, and the room was clean. Free continental breakfast in the lobby consisted of a nice pastry tray and fruit basket. Great value for money. I would stay here again.

Cost a little more then shown on tripadvisor, but the room was still nice, clean, and staff friendly. Only fault was a white line kept running across the screen while watching the ABC channel. That and choice of breakfast items was rather limited

Clean, friendly, reasonable! We pulled in here late at night and exhausted We were greeted with friendly service and reasonable rates. Skip the AM coffee as it tasted more like weak tea, but other than that a great place. Happy we stayed here.

Liked the charm of the place and people were friendly. Attractive lobby that was fun to explore. The room was clean and functional but the bed could use updating. Fair value for the price and was convenient for restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ours actually had 3 beds but we did not need that many.

The room I had was terrible. I myself am a housekeeper and was shocked by how poorly the room was cleaned. Being a housekeeper I of course inspected the room as soon as i got inside. There were what looked like pubes in the tub, hair all over the floor. The floor in front of the sink was sticky and looked as if it hadnt been cleaned in weeks. Only one lamp actually worked. The only way I would stay here again is if the room was $ 5.

Room Tip: A good tip would be to not stay here!!!!!!!!!!

The motel was very centrally located to many restaurants nearby. It was clean and the staff seemed friendly. Rooms were a nice large size and had WiFi. Good price, we will definitely stay there on our next trip to the coast.

The staff was friendly and helpful.
Room was cozy and clean.
Good location, across from river, and near plenty of eateries., the visitor center is in the same block.
Nice lay out for breakfast, plus the Pig&Pancake is in the same parking lot.
The lobby had a lot of good information about the area that was helpful.
