We stayed here for one night while visiting Oregon and Washington coasts. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The kids were kept entertained and were given free danishes and hot chocolates. The place is a bit dated, but the warm welcome more than makes up for it. I lost the keys to my car while loading the car and...

Made a last minute plan to head to the coast for the weekend and was very lucky to find that Hillcrest had a room available. Don and Jay were very welcoming upon arrival and got us checked in quickly since we had made a long drive. Everyone at the desk during our stay provided us with things to make our...

We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were older, but clean and comfortable. We hadn't planned on getting to take this trip, so we were happy to get our reservations, then even more happy with the whole experience!! The desk people were so warm and accommodating. If we get a chance to be back next summer (or anytime)...

We stayed in a cottage with our 4 children. They let us use their beach toys and beach blankets. We had hot chocolate with whipped cream and cookies in the office. We grilled some hamburgers on their BBQ grill. All of this just added to our wonderful experience. Our only complaint, the area is so well lit at night it...

The place itself is simple, but really welcoming and clean. The staff made this the best experience we've had on the Oregon Goast. They make you feel at home, and make sure you have everything you need. It feels like your own little house a couple blocks from a beautiful beach. I forgot my charger in the room and not...

We planned a quick get away in Seaside on the spur of the moment. This quaint inn was located near all the action, but quiet and comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The complimentary hot chocolate with whipped cream was a unexpected treat after a chilly sunset at the beach. We took advantage of the complimentary beach blanket...

The owners were really friendly and helpful. They offered beach toys for our grandchildren even though the children were no staying the night with us. They even have whipped cream for the complimentary hot chocolate- perfect after spending some chilly time on the beach. We were given wine glasses; the huge spa tub was a real treat and the gas...

We stopped in Seaside while on a bike ride through Washington and Oregon. We chose this motel over the bigger hotels in the area and really enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The location was just steps from all the Seaside action but was nice and quiet.

We went on an impromptu trip to the beach and stumbled upon this place. I have some health problems and wasn't doing so well when we went in. They noticed this and not only offered me a chair but called another place for me. We went and checked the other place out and opted for this over the ocean view....

Room was adequate, fridge and microwave included. What set this place apart is the service. Very friendly and attentive. Very short walk to the beach, will stay here again and recommend it to others. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. Also have a limited number of covered parking, staff helped me secure one of the spots for my motorcycle. Very easy walk...
