We had a king bed room which faced the Columbia River. Amazing views from the room, i could have sat in the lounge looking out through the big glass doors all night. Bed was a bit firm for my liking, and more pillows would have been appreciated and made for a more comfortable sleep. Breakfast was good, and staff were...

The room was small, bed and pillows were awful, staff was extremely rude, and they put a $100 "hold" on my debit card, processed the transaction and refused to give me my deposit back. I contacted them several times and was told it had been refunded. I told them I would send them a copy of my bank statement (I...

Please accept my sincere apologies about your experience recently at the Astoria Crest Motel. You are correct that we ask for a $100 deposit on all cash and debit card guests but we rarely have any issue with refunding a deposit upon departure. True it can take two to five business days for the credit card company to refund the...

Nice overlooking views of the Columbian River, the ship traffic and the Mark Hatfield Bridge from the outside fire pit seating area. Comfortable breakfast area in the commons. Updated paint inside and out, newer carpets. (In the east unit rooms, if it is winter and the room seems unusually cold, check and make sure the louvered window behind the curtain...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I see by your comment that you enjoyed the view from the motel. The "fire pit" is not really a fire pit it is a fountain that is lighted from below the surface and it does resemble flames dancing on the water. The comment about the louvered windows in the...

Spotted this place on previous visits to Astoria, and tried it recently. The rooms are clean and very reasonably priced, and the views are outstanding. The motel is perched on a bluff a few miles east of town -- a minus if you want to be in easy walking distance of good restaurants and downtown destinations, but not if you...

I have stayed in Astoria several times before, and stayed in a lot of hotels. The Astoria Crest hotel was among the most pleasant surprises of my hotel staying career. Amazing view, really comfortable and clean room, and unbelievably affordable rates for what you get. Compares very favorably with the Cannery Pier and Hotel Elliot here in Astoria and as...

Have passed by this great motel many times over the years, but a winter $ discount had us making reservations. We were very pleased with our room; large king size bed, flat screen TV, coffee pot, fridge, microwave, great lighting, table and chairs, outdoor balcony that looks out over the Columbia River with at least a dozen barges tied anchored....

We are road tripping and realized we'd be staying the night in Astoria. Based on previous positive reviews and reasonable prices we chose to stay here. It exceeded our expectations! The staff was very friendly and most importantly the room was very clean and we'll taken care of. It is an older motel but you can tell its been well...

The Astoria Crest motel has new owners who have updated this traditional roadside motel. The room was sparkling clean, freshly painted, and spacious. It.had a great view of the river and we woke to the pleasant sound of boat traffic. The room had a refrigerator with a freezer and a microwave. The complimentary breakfast was basic but good. For the...

This is not luxury, or modern and barely updated but if you want spacious, clean, friendly and accomodating, as well as a view of the Columbia River, then stay here. It is only a 5 minute drive to downtown. In room coffee, continental breakfast and an in room refridgerator make it all we needed for our stay. There is a...
