“Delightful stay”
Reviewed 13 August 2008

Nice little family run motel, in Navy Heights area...considerable distance from downtown. Kind of in the midst of nowhere. Very quiet, very clean. I could hear Sealions below barking during the night. Friendly folks. Beds were comfortable and there was good wi-fi. The continental breakfast was a little scant, but enough to get you going. Orange juice, coffee, tea, bread, english muffins, fruit. There is no place to eat your breakfast except outside, which is fine on a good summer morning.

Ocean view, good price, well run and maintained location.

We have been going here for 20 years now,We go two to three times a year. The rooms have always been very clean and look like theyhave just been painted everytime we go. It has a great view and the folks that run it is the best I have ever seen. We travel a lot and this is one of the best.I love to set and watch the ships go by. Anything you need the staff is always there to help you in anyway they can. If you are not happy here then you will not be happy any place

View is fantastic. Motel is rather old and shows some wear. If you don't like noise, you may want to stay elsewhere as the walls are not very soundproof. Also, people walking by your window on the balcony may be a concern. Staff is friendly.

The Crest Motel is a refreshing independently owned simple motel that a corporate franchise would have let fall to pieces decades ago. Very careful proactive maintenance allows guests spectacular views of the Columbia from modestly priced rooms. The rooms face away from the parking so the views are unobstructed.

The motel sits atop a grade on Highway 30 a few miles east of town so that you must travel by car rather than walk to venues in Astoria. This is the motels only negative. The rooms are roomy and basic, but since the views are the primary focus, it’s not a concern. Cleanliness isn’t 5-star but it seems that many guests may also engage in the fantastic outdoor activities in the area and possibly drag the outdoors back to their room as we did.

My only wish was that our second floor balcony was divided from the others so it would not ever be necessary to close off the fantastic view with drapes to have privacy. Maybe some fire code prevents that.

  • Liked — Upkeep, staff, spectacular view
  • Disliked — Closing drapes for privacy

We wanted a quiet, relaxing retreat after a day-long flight and drive - The Crest fit the bill perfectly. The room was clean and comfortable, and had an incredible view of the Columbia River and the bay. The desk staff made a couple of wonderful recommendation for dinner and supplies for items that didn't survice the airline baggage handlers.

The Fairmont it isn't - but it very nicely met our needs and then some. I would definitely recommond staying here.

We have been staying at the Crest, (every time we get a chance) for the last eleven years. The view is the BEST, any where. Although the motel is not new, the rooms are large, comfortable, and in the probably two dozen times we have stayed there, absolutely clean!. We enjoy the hot tub overlooking the Columbia, and look forward to a weekend getaway to Astoria every time we get a chance. Travelers and road warriors alike will enjoy this good value. We have the Crest programmed in our phones

Great View of the Columbia River and Astoria Bridge however the windows are very dirty. Stayed in Room 16 lower level. Very large room with handy refridgerator and microwave, however neither had been cleaned. The bathroom has mold around the baseboard and tub. Furniture has tears and carpet has burn holes. The carpet had crumbs and food debri, so was not vaccumed prior to our arrival. The view is worh the stay and the price is right. There is a small jacuzzi but did not use it. A nice patio with chairs and tables and a decorative fountain. Overall, this is a good stay, just needs a good cleaning!
