Check-in went smoothly, and we were issued a room on the first floor. We were told we could have a room on any floor, and chose the first floor to be closer to the water. The room was pleasantly decorated and had a sweeping view of the wide Columbia. The view was amazing. The bridge itself was spectacular, and the waterfowl and huge cargo ships passing quietly made an ever-changing view.
The prior occupant left some undergarments hanging in the bathroom. When we told the front desk, the items were removed, fresh robes were supplied, chocolates left, and some money taken off the bill. Exemplary service!
Very clean room, very comfy bed. Breakfast included and it actually had some protein items, not just white flour/white sugar items (it had those too, but I don't eat them so I was happy to have an "egg patty" (cooked in a round form so you can make a "mcmuffin" type sandwich if you want). Wi-fi was actually quite robust, an unusual thing in most hotels. Room had microwave, fridge, couch, desk with comfy computer chair. King-size bed with five pillows, some soft, some firmer (nice touch). Excellent cable TV channel line-up, easy to program the remote for CC so I didn't have to crank up the volume and disturb my non-hard-of-hearing neighbors. Hotel is right on the Columbia River, nice views from some rooms (if you don't have storms like I did!). All in all a great place; I'll be back!
We arrived late evening and our first impression of the hotel was that it was a bit drab and in a rather isolated location. Then we had a good and comfortable night's sleep. When we awoke, we realized that the drab was mostly the result of clouds and rain. The hotel looked and felt much better. The free breakfast in the breakfast-only room was a nice extra. The food was OK, the coffee was good, and the staff were great. If it wasn't raining so hard we would have taken a stroll on the river walk that runs right behind the hotel. The hotel was a little far away from the many restaurants and great pubs and breweries, but Astoria is not big enough to make distance that much of a problem. If you're coming into Astoria from the Portland side, it's a pretty easy right turn to the hotel, but you have to watch for it carefully. Coming from the Warrenton side the left turn to the hotel can be difficult if there's traffic because the intersection doesn't have a light. We finally learned to avoid that problem by making a left jog to a side street from the hotel that runs parallel to the main drag. When you hit the next hotel you can turn right to the main drag and find a light at that intersection. All in all this was a pretty good place to stay and we'll use it again next time we're in Astoria.

great location near the beach. Great views to sit and watch the ships coming up the Columbia. Only negative was the room layout. Bed was next to the hallway door. Doors being opened and people talking in the hallway was loud enough to wake me up during the night.
Overall excellent though.
my daughter and i stayed there it was clean inside nothing spectacular ,it is very convenient to many things so that was very nice . there is the constant sound of traffic , our 1 bed, the room was a bit small but it did the job ,the lights in the room kinda sucked , but hey at least there were bright lights maybe just a nice lamp shade would add some help. simple place . ..good for resting after a long day out ,but probably not the place you want to spend more than a night or two at and not the best for families .
Located 96 miles west of Portland, Astoria combines a storied maritime history with a newly hip cultural vibe. Victorian mansions neighbor tattoo parlors and espresso stands, where loggers and fishermen are now seen as frequently as artists and musicians. Ships of all sizes travel from the Pacific through Astoria, where the Columbia River begins its journey east along the Oregon-Washington border.
