Overall, the hotel knew who the real star was - the view of the stunning Astoria-Megler bridge sitting on the equally stunning river. Two views for the price of one.
There were other more expensive hotels in the area. Save money and stay here because the view here is more than good enough.
The decor and amenities are what you'd expect from hotels of the budget price range. More than decent. Also, the vibe is family/cozy and not too upscale nor trendy. Which is kinda appropriate for this region of natural beauty.
The staff was super helpful. Although, slightly understaffed during times when it seems every human being alive is checking in at the front desk.
Another downside was a staff member's claim that the pool was heated. It was cold when I swam that night so you might want to confirm that with the staff. I may have just been given the wrong info.
While I hail from New York, I am not one of those food snobs that seem prevalent from that city. Show me a free hotel breakfast anywhere and I'll be there. The breakfast they served at this Holiday Inn fulfilled its prime directive - warm, healthy options available, assorted spread. Best part was the gravy addition.
Overall, save money and stay here instead of the super high end ones in the area. You'll all be looking at the same water view anyway.More
