Very fun motel, awesome service and donuts and coffee at checkout. A hip 50's ratpack theme and close walking distance to stores and activities. We will definitely come back hen visiting Astoria. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable and had a microwave and mini fridge

I LOVE mid-century modern. The real not the fakey. This has both in a good mix. Adorable rooms with the old mixed with the necessary new( no one wants a shower curtain from the 50's ) . The rooms are small and very adequate. The beds were comfortable. They allow dogs in some rooms which was what we needed. The...

... we knew we were on the right track when we requested a room on the main floor and got #101 .... since we are driving down the coast on Hwy #1 and #101 it was a sign! Small, quaint, didn't hear a sound even on a busy street. Friendly staff, we would stay again!!

We stayed in this hotel one year ago before the renovation. We had a great time then too, but the hotel really looks beautiful now. Such a fun and interesting space. Lots of different people. Definitely one of Astoria's treasures! Thanks to everyone there for such a fun time.

From the moment we walked into the reception area this motel made me smile. Everything is fun and really well done. Dean made us feel welcome and gave us great information on the town. The rooms are beautifully retro styled but up to date, clean and comfortable. Free bikes are available so you can cycle along the river walk to...

My wife and I can honestly say this is one of the best value motels we have stayed at. New ownership took over in June and you can see some of the old warts, but they have done a great job of updating and cleaning up the building. Fantastic, enthusiastic service Clean and comfortable Low rate Excellent dinner and drinks...

The Atomic is a great place that has a unique vibe. It's a basic road side, old school motel. I stayed in room 206 and found a really clean and comfortable room. Wi-fi worked great. Bed was sleep inducing with good pillows. Shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. Windows can be opened, always a good thing, but...

We stayed just one night in Astoria and enjoyed our visit to the Atomic Motel. The rooms were retro themed, quirky and cute! The manager/owner was extremely helpful on places not to miss and where the best food could be found! Pigs 'n Pancakes is right next door and a bargain for breakfast but the motel offered a continental type...

We were greeted very warmly upon entering the hotel. The woman at the desk took the time to offer lots of helpful advice about the town, and showed us how to get everywhere on the map. They even have bikes to use which you can ride along the waterfront area. The decor of the hotel is very colorful, clean, and...

Really liked the place, cozy feel, comfortable bed, no frills but everything you need in a motel room. WiFi was good and they had decent TV options. Price may seem steep but that's just the local market.
