The thing is, this COULD be one of the best spots in Seaside. Imagine an "Embassy Suites" except built in the fifties and then NEVER touched since. It has so much going for it: A nice floorplan and room layout, directly next door to the Aquarium, a half a block from the "turn-a-round", on the boardwalk, on the beach, directly... More

It was during the old cars show at the beach... The price they charged,I think they expected a sell out..We wanted two queen beds, $146.00 for one Queen and a single. She said that is all they had, we looked out very early in the morning, so their sell out didn't work out, 3 or 4 cars is all in... More

We had the second floor corner room by the Aquarium. It is fun watching people walk down the boardwalk. The hotel is old, but every year we go there there are updates in the rooms . The stairs are outside and seem to be getting steeper every year. Could it be we are getting older?

The room had a full size kitchen with two queen beds, one in it's own separate room which was very nice. There is a lot of cupboard and closet space if staying for an extended amount of time. Downside was, the kitchen we were told, " comes fully equipped with dish and cookware." Not true. There were pots and pans... More

Don't let the rating scare you. It is an old motel but our room was clean and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and the WiFi worked great. Room got warm but you can ask for a fan. The view from the room was breathtaking! Located off the promenade with great restaurants and shops. Great value!

Very affordable and located right on the beach with a room facing the ocean. Microwaves, refrigerators and coffee makers are included in the room. Family operated for more than 30 years. Easy walk to area restaurants and shops. Located along the historic promenade.

The website for this motel is so misleading! It is on the beach but it is horrible! The room is so outdated. It seems dirty...saw a spot of blood on the bedspread! My sister and I found a tick in the room! We were afraid to go to sleep. Highly overpriced...very poor quality...ugh...

2 queen room, kitchenette ocean view. Rooms were of a 70s design - well worn but clean. The large window was a great spot to enjoy the unobstructed ocean view at all hours/weather.

This is a much older motel that could really, really use some upgrading. You absolutely cannot beat the view and you are in center of the boardwalk, but! The place is the most basic of basic. Beds - that need replacing, a TV - that needs mounting on the wall, because you cannot see it from the 2nd bed and... More
