    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.

    Sleeping with the barges!


    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.

    The location is what seperates this hotel from most others...if you reserve a room on the river side, you can sit in your room and relax all the while feeling like the Astoria-Megler bridge is visiting with your room! The views onto the water, the small waves, the shorebirds flying by and the vista across the river to Washington are just spectacular. And, if you get a room with a (gas) fireplace, it makes the experience even more cozy on a rainy day!

    But, at night, you can look out at the large river-side windows and spy on the sea vessels tucked in for the night, with their "parking" lights on, right outside your room. Its like sleeping with the barges!

    The views are not isolated to the river side though. If you are on the opposite side of the hotel, you will have historical views of the Astoria hillside, dotted with century-plus-old homes. It leads your imagination to the 1800s and early 1900s and the lives and families who called Astoria home.

    The Holiday Inn Express is an inviting and modern contrast to the quaint and coastal rivertown of Astoria! I highly recommed it and hope to be back soon!

    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.

    Beyond Wonderful!


    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.

    Our room overlooked the beautiful Columbia River as it led into the Pacific Ocean. At night, we watched the riverboats come and go. During the day, the adorable little trolley car picked passengers up just below our window. But don't worry...the noise was almost un-noticable! The bathroom had the most beautiful tiled floors and reminded me of the Hotel Lusso in downtown Spokane. The room was plenty big enough for the three of us and the beds were so comfortable. (A nice change from the place we stayed at in Hillsboro) GORGEOUS!

    The whole room was wonderful...even our 5 year old was impressed. Of course, he loved the pool room and even dipped his toes in the hot tub! Everything in the hotel was top notch and the entire property was so clean. The staff was beyond helpful and friendly.

    I would HIGHLY recommend staying here if you're looking for the ultimate Oregon Coast experience!

    Great location, clean rooms, wonderful staff...


    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!

    This is a new hotel that I believe opened the spring of this year. It is located right on the river under the Astoria bridge. We were traveling with our grandparents and I always worry about the accomodations when I book a room for them. They were thrilled and I was too when the next morning they just couldn't stop talking about their comfortable bed and what a good night's sleep they had. We both had king rooms, river view w/ fireplace. The rooms were big with a fantastic view!

    The hotel is very easy to find right off the bridge exit on the main road. The lobby is beautiful complete with comfortable chairs, and fireplaces to sit by and enjoy a cup of coffee while reading the morning paper. You can see ships passing by the windows or enjoy them while sitting outside. Inside was a stand with the different ship info. so you could try to identify them as they pass.

    Astoria is a beautiful town with the picturesque Victorian architecture in contrast with the mighty Columbia it was just breathtaking!

    May we recommend taking the trolley ride on the old 300 a beautifully restored trolley. The trolley will pick you up right out the back door of the hotel. For $1 you can take a 45 min. narrated tour.

    The Maritime museum is a must see. From the outside we didn't think it would be really worth our time. Boy were we wrong. It had so many artifacts, history and hands on displays. Well worth the time a money!

    The Astoria Column was just awesome! The view at the top is worth walking the 164 spiral staircase! On your way down stop by King custard for a cone. TRUE East Coast frozen custard!

    Ft. Stevens was great for walking around the old bunkers and then visiting the museum to brush up on the awesome military history.

    We enjoyed a great meal at the Fish Inn. The BEST fish and chips EVER!

    Pig and pancake is good but ONLY for the pancakes. We are already making plans to visit Astoria again, and soon!

    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.

    We picked up car #3 in Seatlle. A Nissan Altima this time. 2.5l engine, reasonably well spec'd, decent pick up - really quite nice and a tremendous contrast to the reviled RV. After collecting the car, we headed to the Bainsbridge Island ferry, and drove around the Olympic Peninsular to Port Angeles, on the north of the coast. It rained. And it …

    ... really it’s closer to the size of Houston, MO. The locals were incredibly nice and had setup “Cruise Hosts” all around town – wearing blue jackets – thanking us for visiting their town and offering directions, etc. I get the feeling that not many ships stop in Astoria very often. It’s no wonder. There really isn’t a lot to do but the maritime museum made it worth it for us. I’m glad ...

    ... he said he'd get on to it, and he'd call us back with a plan in fifteen minutes.

    Twenty minutes later, he rang to tell us that all his contacts had finished for the day, and he didn't really know what to do. He suggested we might want to look for somewhere to stay, but wasn't clear on the implications of this in our lease.

    ... we went to a brewery on the waterfront called Buoys Beer. They have a glass panel in the floor so you can watch the sea lions. They're loud and they smell awful but it was so cool! Apparently there's over 1000 of them that live in the bay - but they destroy everything so the locals don't like them. I think they're cute though! We also walked up Astoria Column. Similar to the Coit Tower in San Francisco but a lot ...
