“Good-if you can find it”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

We arrived in the late afternoon and were driving directly into the setting sun and we missed this hotel. You can see it from the main road but you have to turn off and then drive down an alley to get to it. Look for the car wash on the corner; turn there and then turn left down an alley past some self storage units with U Hauls out front of them.

We were upgraded to a newer room with a comfortable king bed but it appears that the remodel is not finished. The microwave is quite old and the bar fridge did not fit into the console so the console door did not close completely. Other than this, the room is reasonably attractive with tile flooring and new carpet. There was lots or room to sit and read or work at the computer desk; however the wifi signal was slow at times.

Breakfast included sausage and eggs, hot and cold cereals, yogurt, juices, tea and coffee and hot chocolate etc, waffles. You should be able to find something to eat-but there was no fruit if that is important to you.

Overall, this was a clean, comfortable and quiet hotel. We would stay again.

Room Tip: ask for a remodeled room

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for our property. You are correct about our remodel. We are in the process of remodeling our whole hotel. Our tower is complete, leaving our standard rooms needing to be finished. We are actually replacing our beds this week with higher pillow tops. Which raises them additional 18 inches off the floor. They really do make for an every enjoyable rest. With our breakfast we are always striving to have a fun, healthy array of selections. We normally have bananas as our fruit selections but recently have added some granny smith apples too. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

We traveled here at the beginning of the off-season, and when we arrived we were upgraded to a nicer room for free. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a fire place, hot tub, fridge, and microwave. They have a decent continental breakfast, and the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Easy stop on our way up the coast to Olympic National Park.

This is our favorite hotel in Astoria! Always fantastic service, clean rooms and feels right at home. Our doggy is welcome, and they even give a little treat for him when we check in. They have a nice walking area at the front of the building for our Tucker, on the leash of course. Love the 24 hour pool, we get to enjoy swimming and hot tub and sauna anytime we want. Breakfast is way above what you would find at another best western. Ask for the remodeled room and you will be treated to an extra cozy bed! Or the fireplace jacuzzi rooms are a treat too! We will always be back!

Room Tip: 344 and the suite on the 4th floor are well worth the extra $

We just pulled into town-no reservation.Traveling with our dog we had to be on the first floor.It never fails, when you have a dog you get the worst and pay more for it.The room itself was really cramped not any room for the dogs bed, no view even though we were on the ocean. I get tired of being treated like a lesser citizen and having to pay more for it.Most people who travel with thier dogs have well behaved and clean dogs. The gal at the front desk should be given a raise-excellent employee.A redeaming factor, the walking path.

I am sorry to hear about your displeasure in your room. We actually allot the ground floor for our furry friends. And it is not uncommon to have those rooms fill up fast. Even with 25 rooms that are pet friendly. We have two sections of pet rooms: our tower and our main wing. Both have different configurations, some offering more space then other for pets. The next time you are traveling thru please do not hesitate to let me know and I will preregister you into my favorite room. Also I’ll show you some great trails for you and your pet to enjoy. Thank you

If you are going to stay here ask for the remodeled rooms! Our room was very nice but waling through the filthy halls on the first floor and using the smelly elevator up to our room I was not impressed. We had a bayside view which overlooked a shipping yard. We were on the road for two weeks and this hotel was the most expensive and probably the most unkept of any we stayed.

This hotel is hard to get to....you can see it from the road, but together with a roundabout, lots of traffic, and access to the hotel being off a less traveled road and through a UHaul parking lot, even the GPS was of no help in finding the road in.

Once there, we were less than impressed with the facility. We arrived about 3pm on a busy memorial day Sunday. Our room was not ready, so we did a sashay thru the town. When we returned a couple of hours later, our room was ready. It was on the first floor, down a long dark narrow hallway. Having just checked out of a great Best Western Plus in Troutdale, Or., I was very disappointed in the size and appointments of the room. The linens were cheap but clean. The tv old style, the sink right inside the doorway, and not in the bathroom...very motel 6. But, after staying there for 2 nights, overall the experience wasn't bad. Beds were comfortable.

The hotel was full for the weekend, and breakfast was very crowded both mornings we were there. The one person staff had a hard time keeping the food stocked, and there was not enough seating for all the people who were trying to eat breakfast. Also, this hotel is not really equipped for a "full house". The breakfast area was too small to accommodate so many people, even on the second morning when there were fewer folks there. Food was adequate if you were willing to wait in line for it and lucky enough to find a table to sit down.

The hotel is nice and staff is friendly. A little far from the downtown core if you want to hit a restaurant for dinner or pub for drinks.
