We left Astoria and headed south in HWY 101 South. We stopped in Cannon Beach - an quaint little seaside town. It has amazing beaches much like Tofino on Vancouver Island. The weather has been getting even better as we head south. Full steam ahead! Well sort of - we are stopping to take pictures and see all we can. Garibaldi is another beautiful seaside town worth a visit. Next ...
We arrived in Astoria Friday night around 9pm. We found a camp site at Fort Stevens. Nice site. Set up was fast and then we kicked back with some cold bevy's and enjoyed some roasted hot dogs over the fire. It was misting out but fairly warm. We spent a good night and then got ...
... Beach. The town of Seaside, Oregon was a few miles down the road where I found a hotel, walked on the beach and rested my weary bones in the hot tub.
It is beautiful here. There were many couples walking the beach or on blankets by small fires. I was overwhelmed by a sense of loss and sadness for the future Lori and I were robbed of. I was also overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for the love we shared.
... and a $20 bill. I told Laurel that I did not need the money and asked her to please take it back, but she said she saw it as a form of tithe and that she wanted me to have it. I obliged and knew this was God's provision for trusting in Him. Had I not stayed the previous night I would have never met Laurel and gained the encouragement and renewal of faith in the Lord as my Healer. Praise be to God.

State campsites are located across the entire US, and although owned by the state, are usually maintained by 'hosts', a person or couple that will live onsite in an RV or trailer. They are in charge of general upkeep as well as keeping an eye on things, in return for living on the grounds for free. These are pretty basic campsites, with spaces to pitch, fire pits, compost toilets and maybe a shelter or cooking area - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rivertide Suites Seaside
Upon arriving in Seaside Oregon I realized they had no power due to a horrible storm. The Rivertide Suites Condo Hotel had lights on and was warm. They were very smart to have generators that light the lobby, outside, and one light in each room!! We did not have to suffer in the dark or cold at all. The hotel serves breakfast each morning whenever you stay there, but as an added bonus during the storm they also provided a wonderful dinner for all the hotel guests, and anyone else who needed a hot meal. It was such a delight to see all the people who work at the hotel smiling, talking to the guests, being so nice and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, with full kitchens, they are like home rather than a hotel. You must go there if nothing else just to check out the bathrooms, very large deep jetted bathtubs, (although I didn't get the jet effect with the power out, but the hot water and soaking was wonderful), great shampoo and soap and body gel, it was a real treat. I am certainly going back to the Rivertide Suites the next time I come to Seaside. They earned my business over and over again with everything they did for us during our stay.

Great location for families
We spent three days and two nights at this lovely new property. My friend and I brought our two children, while the dads stayed back home. It is the perfect location for kids. The hotel rooms, flat-screen TVs, breakfast, and pool are great for children. Plus, it's located just blocks from the beach, aquarium, carousel, arcade and kid-friendly restaurants. April at the front desk made our children feel welcome each time they passed through the lobby. We will definitely return and stay here again in the future!
Fabulous Place To Stay
I would highly recommend a visit to Rivertide Suites, the front desk staff so friendly and helpful, April went above and beyond her duties in helping us find another place to stay on our way back home. Suites are extremely comfortable and so clean ( you could eat dinner off the floor if you so wished )
We will certainly stay there again if we ever travel that route.
I stayed here for a romantic getaway with my fiancee. We were absolutely pleasantly surprised at the quality of this place for the price (we got a promotional rate on a studio for $87/night). The studio was actually quite large and had everything a studio apartment has like dish washer, oven/stove, washer/dryer, sofa, dining table, fireplace, etc.
I headed to Seaside on Labor Day weekend, ready to start a new job on Tuesday, with no place to stay! Rivertide Suites was not only very accommodating, but very warm, friendly, and helpful as well. From filling me in on great restaurants to introducing me to key members of the community - they have proactively steered me in the right direction each time. I've been here for three weeks now, and there's no end to what the wonderful front desk team does to help me out. Recently, I had to travel to Portland at night, and they even asked me to call them to let them know of my safe arrival!! As a female living alone in a strange place, they have made this place feel very much like home to me. If not for the fact that I need a house to hold all my stuff, I would be tempted to live here for good. Many thanks to Rivertide for all that they do, and most especially the way that they do it. This is, indeed, the ultimate form of hospitality.
We stayed at the Rivertide within days of its opening. It was not finished on all floors but ours was open for business. Rivertide is a Condotel and we are considering investing in it very seriously. We found the staff and ownership to be knolegeable and friendly. The facility has studios, 1 & 2 bedroom suites. All are upscale with tile floors, well appointed furniture, plasma TV's, washer and dryer, and jetted tub. We stayed in a studio but toured the 1 & 2 Bedroom suites. All were very nice. We are doing a 1031 exchance with some Colorado rentals and Rivertide was the first of 3 to identify.
The hotel opened this week. Going in we knew that we were likely to face some kinks because it was opening day. Construction is still in progress and they are still scrambling to get it into shape. Our check-in was delayed even though they have a late check-in. When we finally got into the room a lot of basic stuff was still not in place. We were plugging in lamps etc to outlets ourselves. The fireplace was not working and the TV was showing only one channel with no option to change it. Building materials were left over in the balcony. After speaking to other guests we did feel that we lucked out. One fellow guest commented that the dishwasher fell off when they tried to open it and that even basic plumbing was not working in their room. Only one of the four floors is currently functional. Expect construction to continue for several more weeks.
