Greg just felt like staying home today to watch the Nascar Race, so Zach and I took off exploring on our own.
Spur of the moment, I decided to make the 25 minute drive north to the Lewis and Clark Interprative Center and National Historic Park - we watched the film and walked around the museum - found it really ...
... the poor sunset just didn’t have a chance of performing. Thank goodness for a reflection of color in a tidal pool, and a small sand castle, the shoot was redeemable. There again, our digital software proved its weight in gold as did our cameras on our Samsung phones for 5 star pictures.
Day is done…..gone the sun. Time to pack and fly back to Texas tomorrow. We bid you goodbye ...
... Furthermore we could not be seated altogether so four of us had our own table while the other eight were within reach. Kind of like Thanksgiving time, there is the adult table and there is the kid’s table!
Our "kids" table of four had a very cute waitress. Soon she got used to our humor and took us on as her challenge for the evening! When Steve found out the prix-fixe dinner was around $65 starting price, ...

We tried to find a place that had fresh fish for sale, you know, a fish monger, but couldn't find one anywhere. We drove 50 or 60 miles before we found one and they were so ridiculously priced that we only bout a pound of steamers to go with what we had at camp and left.
Oh, have we talked about the road construction up in this part of the country? We knew that it would be bad, ...

I also played with his little dog, who was woofing with excitement and getting involved. The man asked us all where we were from, and was surprised when I said London. I said everyone loves the Goonies, all over the world, and he grinned proudly! Then he said that now we've visited, we are officially goonies too! Best day out I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express and Suites Astoria
Wow, great room, great view!
We had a very romantic room with a jacuzzi type tub and fireplace in the living area, all took full advantage of the view.
You can't go wrong staying here
What I liked:
- Hotel is brand new (finished early 2004).
- Very reasonable price.
- Breakfast buffet included, with hard-boiled eggs, waffles (make yourself), yogurt, as well as the usual items.
- Right on the water.
What I didn't like:
- Can't think of anything.
Loved Astoria and the Holiday Inn Express
Stayed one night and had a spacious, clean and very comfortable room with king bed and fireplace. Our room on the 3rd floor had an amazing view of the Columbia River and the Astoria Megler Bridge. We had a delicious dinner at the UnionTown Cafe - they had a jazz trio in the diningroom. We were sitting in the cozy bar and really enjoyed dinners and the jazz. The piano man was amazing. We hope to stay here on our way back home.
Okay, not great
I was not very impressed with this hotel, the room was okay although I was woken by the sound of water rushing through the walls everytime someone upstairs flushed the toilet. The greatest frustration though was the rudeness of the guy behind the desk, who seemed to be upset with me for taking him away from his novel each time I had to come back to tell him that my room key was still not working.
My husband and I spent one night last week at the Holiday Inn Express in Astoria. The hotel is everything that everyone else has said...a wonderfully new, spacious property with enormous rooms, regional decor, an excellent (continental) breakfast, and gracious staff.
Awesome stay, will definitely be back!
What a cool place to stay! The location of this Holiday Inn definitely makes it worth a visit. Very impressed with the service and general cleanliness. Would recommend a room up high overlooking the river (a suite if you can swing it). Wish we'd had more time to spend in Astoria, will definitely be back for another visit.
This hotel was more than we could have asked for! We stayed last Spring right after it first opened and it didn't let us down.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express one night 10/02/04. An excellent hotel! It was everything one could ask for, great price, through travelocity, awesome view, romantic room w/ fireplace, great free breakfast, wonderful location, and the friendliest staff!
Great Gem on the Columbia River
This hotel recently opened, and adds a great alternative to the current hotel choices in Astoria. The rooms are quite large and very nicely decorated. The views of the river and across to Washington can't be beaten. There's a plentiful breakfast buffet included in the cost of the room. Staff is friendly and helpful. Easy wireless and wired internet access. Meeting space is available for group functions. This hotel is much more deluxe than you would expect from a typical Holiday Inn Express! Lots to do in Astoria.
