I actually had a great time in the town except for the two days spent at this establishment. For me, this was a truly traumatic experience. Heater was out. Room phone didn't work. The bathroom door had splintering at the bottom and could have given someone, especially a child, a bad splinter. Not enough towels. Shower curtain literally stank—heavy sour smell. Only three coat hangers in the place. When I got there, I had to drive half a mile south to their "sister" motel to check in. I was not told this fact when making my reservation. On the second day I was there, the gal at the desk said she couldn't do anything about the poor conditions and said that other people had experienced the same or similar issues staying there. There was no effort on their part to make it right by offering me a partial refund. I plan to take some kind of action against the management/owners of this motel. They are already in violation of safety codes due to the bad door I mentioned. Oh, and the bed was squishy, not comfortable. The absolute only good thing I can about this place is that it did not have bedbugs or cockroaches.

I stayed here in October 2016, so I thought I would stay on this trip to Seaside. It is not the same. They advertise free WiFi. It doesn’t have enough juice to even open a webpage much less download email. There is no manager or employee on site, your pick up your key at another hotel. They rarely answer the phone when you call so don’t expect problems to get fixed. The room smelled like smoke or some other strange smell. The TV doesn’t have a clear picture on any channel. The hot water may not exist. After running the tap for several minutes, it was just getting lukewarm. There aren’t many people staying here so there should be hot water. The bed might be okay. The fridge is pretty nice. They already charged my credit card so I’m stuck for a couple of days. The room is pretty small and so is the bathroom. My advice try option.

My girlfriend and I came out to seaside for the weekend and had a great time! The motel was right next to downtown, the rooms were exceptionally clean. Our host, Carmen made our stay here even better. Whatever it was we needed, she took care of us! I will definitely be staying here next time I’m in Oregon!

I have stayed at a couple other affordable motels in Seaside and always prefer City Center Motel. The beds are comfortable, 1 block to the beach, can run out to catch sunset. Carmen is really helpful w/whatever I'm looking for, restaurants, shops and my dog gets lots of biscuits!
