I wanted to like this hotel. I really did. I dig small hotels. I'm cool with old furniture and stained carpet. We have a family. we budget. Cheaper hotel means more $ for other stuff. All I require is a clean bed and a decent shower. Our room is/was filthy. Nothing looks like it has ever been wiped down. I wrote my name on the lamp and door, then I just stopped opening my eyes when I'm in there and the lights are on. Sink and shower drain so slow. Make sure you double check that the door locks behind you. Of the three rooms we stayed in none did. Pretty sure code requires that they do. None of the doors are hung properly. This is only an issue for me because I have an 8 year old who doesn't pay attention to these things. If you have a small child do not stay on the second floor. The balcony slats are too big and a 2 year old could definitely get through. I don't get the view everyone is raving about, all you can see is boats in the water. Its not an ocean view. Also I'm pretty sure there are some families that actually live here. Loud music all hours of the day. They must have a different front desk staff no one has been friendly to us. In fact one person said I had to wait an hour before she could or would make more coffee. There was no one around so iDK what she was doing. No one offers to help or even says hi ever. I wish we never stayed here.
- 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 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
