We stayed here Nov 4-5, 2012. We bought a groupon deal, 2 nights for $115. It included tickets to 3 local museums. It was supposed to include tickets for the riverfront trolley, but the trolley only operates on the weekends in winter time, and only if not raining! So we didn't get to see the trolley at all. We got there just after 4pm, and a few others were also cheking in. Check-in was quick, the front desk lady was nice enough.
Our room was on the first floor. The rooms are larger than the standard motel room. It had a nice balcony over the marina/water. Although the sliding door was difficult to open, and it kept falling off the tracks. The rooms have no AC units, so in order to get fresh air we had to keep the balcony door open. The room itself was very clean! All furniture and equipment in the room was in working order. I even checked under the bed, and behind nightstand, no dust bunnies, so A+ on cleanliness! The room had baseboard heaters, we had to keep the control low other wise it would get to hot. With out it, the room was to cool.
The bathroom seemed outdated, from the 70s, but it was very clean, and everything worked well.
We could not get wifi to connect on our laptop. Wifi in the rooms would be a big big plus!
Breakfast was limited; if you are on a low carb diet, better skip it. No fresh fruit selections at all. Just white or wheat bread for toast. Make your own waffles, and 2 types of cereal. Coffee and orange juice and one other type juice I believe.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, using the groupon deal.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Originally opened as the Red Lion – Thunderbird Motor Inn and later simply as the Red Lion, the Astoria Riverwalk Inn was the town’s first waterfront hotel, established in the late 1960s. The Port of Astoria owns the facility, and in September 2015 contracted with new local ownership to assume and improve the Riverwalk Inn operations. The new ownership group is comprised of seasoned business management professionals with significant experience in commercial property development and hospitality, including the development and initial launch of the award-winning Hotel Elliott in downtown Astoria. With a new operating team in place since September 2015, literally everything is new at the Astoria Riverwalk Inn. From the luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, redesigned dining area and lobby adorned with local, original artwork; the addition of a continental breakfast; extensive landscaping and general updates throughout (including lots of fresh paint!), guests will gain a sense of renewed care and attention to detail. Other complimentary amenities include a business center just off the lobby, upgraded high-speed Wi-Fi, a DVD library and “Beach Cruiser” bikes for exploring Astoria’s acclaimed four-mile long Riverwalk. We think you’ll find changes to the Astoria Riverwalk Inn create an inviting atmosphere for a restful stay on the waterfront. We hope to see you soon! ... more less
