Stayed in July for three nights and this was a really neat place. Step out the back door and there's the Columbia River with a view of the bridge that connects Oregon and Washington. Early morning and early evening watch the big ships go by.
Good size room with micro/fridge and very clean. Comfortable firm beds.
On east side of town back from road and very quiet. This is a great location. A+++

We stayed at the Crest Motel in the 70's & 80's and it was nice but is little outdated for 2010. No bathroom fans, or air in bedroom. Many plug ins did not work. A few spiders. View great, reason we had gone back. A quite pricey for accommodations compared with the big nice chain motels with added amenities, which are about same price. Rooms large tho.

Old, dated, motel. Extra cost for rooms with view of Columbia River. Curtains in bathroom and main room shabby and traverse rod broken. Appliances in room old, but work. Continental breakfast, but nowhere to eat it unless you take it back to room. AAA should re-evaluate.

Booked a double, non-view, AAA-discounted room for 28-July. Hotel is right on the highway into town (but we were able to keep our bathroom window open and didn't notice the noise), and is a classic roadside motel that you might expect to find on Route 66. Though older, it is immaculately kept up and is therefore a wonderful place to stay, especially for those of us with memories of staying in such places growing up in the 50's and 60's. Property is on a cliff overlooking the Columbia river - our host upgraded us to a view room for no extra charge "because we're not that busy tonite". Nice. Basic continental breakfast included in the price of the room (orange juice, coffee/tea, Costco muffins). Room was very clean - bathroom spotless - pretty much your basic motel room with crisp white sheets that smelled very clean and fresh. Compared to some of the other properties in Astoria, the price makes this a great value if you're looking for a basic, clean place to stay for a weekend or a night, and I would certainly stay here again.

Cant say enough good about this place ! very clean comfortable and wow what a view !!!! Price is very reasonable with the rest of astoria and in my opinion has a much better vantage point than the more expensive 300 plus a night hotels! Our room was very spacious was more like staying in an apartment than a hotel ! the view impecable! the only thing was there was no a/c in the room and it was a little warm that week ,no big deal. I will definetely return and recommend it to all friends and family who choose to visit

The only reason that this does not get 5's all around, is that the hotel is a little older, that said.... This place is wonderful, and an excellent value! Get a view room; located on a bluff, this motel has a breath taking view, much better than most of the spendy ones. The rooms are clean, and serene. They were also great for our 2 yr old, (the doors can't easily be opened like the places we stayed in Hawaii) The owners are very friendly, and even gave us a hoodie to use when my husband forgot to bring one. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!
