Astoria Crest Motel
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Astoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Heeding the dodgier reviews we booked a double queen with view. We weren't disappointed. Spotlessly clean, and quiet as long as you are away from the highway. And above all that view!! We even think we heard the sea lions.

Other highlights - really fluffy towels, good coffee in the rooms and a simple but adequate continental breakfast. The place just seems well run.

Watch out for: no a/c (not a problem for us Brits on a cool night); some noise from adjoining bathrooms and rather dodgy wifi. But we would come back and stay here in preference to the expensive hotels in the industrial town centre.

Stayed: August 2014

Just realized this property has been sold and happy to see they are still fairly competitive with prices. We have stayed at the Crest Motel a few times before from a top floor river view room to an adorable, yet small corner room. Always a nice stay and great location.

Astoria is a great small town with lots of history, especially the Lewis & Clark Expedition arriving at the mouth of the Columbia River - visit Fort Clatsop and Fort Stevens near Warrenton, Oregon. Then come back to The Crest Motel for another night of River gazing,

Based on reviews I asked for a second floor view room--clean, large enough--but not air conditioned. I had to leave the sliding door open for comfort. View was nice and river air cooled room just fine. Morning continental breakfast was adequate, but not varied. No problems with noise. Didn't even have to make a reservation. Staff said it's necessary on weekends, but not during the week. I'd stay here again.

We stayed for 2 nights after seeing good reviews and pictures online. Upon entering our room, it smelled like dirty feet and a dank swamp. Spiders and HUGE cobwebs were everywhere, including a nest in the bathtub. Linens were stained and every nook and cranny was dirty. We slept with only a sheet and our own pillows. The bathtub drain was also clogged making showering an unpleasant experience. You could also hear everything in the surrounding rooms. If any other establishment would have been available, we would have never set foot at The Crest. Terrible place to stay and a crime for what they charge!

I stayed at the Crest Motel once a week for over a year for work - during that time, I probably stayed in every room. Rooms are clean, there's free wifi, and the staff are some of the nicest people in the world. There's a continental breakfast in the morning - simple things like muffins and coffee. The hotel is very quiet, and the rooms have a great view of the Columbia River. Overall, I loved staying here, and will always book a room here when I'm staying in Astoria.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are better than the first floor. Some of the rooms in the back buildings y...

Have stayed here twice, both times for two nights in late as April for the local seafood and wine festival. While the service has been good both times and the amenities and overall room experience just OK the difference between a view room and a room in the back makes a huge difference. First time we stayed it was a family room. Did not know until we got there that it had no view. Seems like these rooms have vacancy often as it smelled musty and everything seemed to have been untouched and therefore dusty. Our most recent stay was in a two queen room on the ground floor with a view. Room was cleaner and the view was great. I lived in Astoria for over 20 years and can say the view here beats that of any other hotel and rivals that of many homes. Good value, but only if you get a view room. We will continue to make this our place to stay, while ensuring a room with a view.

We were expecting to have to pay a premium for such a nice view of the estuary, but their rate was great, room clean, wifi worked well, and management nice. Close to highway, but without the noise. Just what you need when passing through. This last sentence is to fill up the space to reach the Tripadvisor 200 character minimum review length (what else do you need to know about a motel?).
