Historical Traveler Reviews Rivertide Suites Seaside
Great place to stay
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.
Coastal ranking in Seaside,Oregon
Haveing stayed in 7-9 different coastal cities along the Oregon Washington coast. Rivertide Suites in Seaside, Oregon is by far one of the best in service, things to do and overall quality of stay in the great town of Seaside, Oregon. The town is in the middle of a complete makeover and a must see. staying @ Rivertide will make you want buy one of their studio's,1or 2 bedrooms units like I did and have been pleased with my visits and solid investment. Only 70 miles from Portland ,Or Rivertide Suites is one of The best place to stay on the Oregon Coast. Kid friendly and something do for all age's.

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.
Amazing room, great place
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.
The staff was very friendly and we were impressed with the quality of the rooms. We will definitely stay here again if we can get a rate similar to the promotional rate we had, we loved this place from top to bottom.
One word of warning to people staying here in the near future, request a room with a working fireplace if that matters to you, as the contractors are STILL not finished over two months after this place opened. We were on the top floor and the fireplace did not work, it apparently only works on floors 1 and 2 for now.
Loved the Rivertide Suites
Arrival time was Sept 23, a Sunday evening. Was greeted by very helpful front desk who then gave me the key to this lovely, cozy studio. This property was still in the finishing touches but the rooms were finished beautifully. I could not get over the size of the area either, because most studios aren't this roomy. The kitchen was complete with a full sized stove, refrigerator and all the pots and pans one could possibly have in their own kitchen. The bed was very comfy along with the soft downy bedspread. I had a wonderful view off my private deck as well. The housekeepers were efficient and kept me well supplied with daily linens, towels and ect.( Plus very friendly as well. )The breakfast was complete with biscuits and gravy a wonderful assortment of pastries, muffins, fruit, yogart and other things. Plus the most important part was the smile that the breakfast lady gave me while I ate my breakfast. I'd also like to give kudos to front desk people, April, Kim and the wonderful front desk manager. My many thanks to their suggestions for seeing beautiful Seaside, always giving me ideas and suggestions for places to eat or offering their assistance for things like where I could go for a good cup of chowder or whatever. Over the TOP for Customer Service. I would certainly go back again as my experience was super.
Rivertide Suites - A Home Away from Home
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.
Not ready yet
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.
The rooms themselves are quite nice and this will become Seaside's premier resort once everything in place. The rooms are spacious and the bedding is nice. The rooftop view is very nice. The front desk personnel were friendly and apologetic for the construction inconvenience.

... Felt a bit wobbly on the way up and down but the view was worth it. Astoria is beautiful! Took a drive up to Hammond and found the wall that Free Willy jumped over. Not really sure why he jumped - could have just swam through the opening! I couldn't walk out to reenact the scene incase a sea lion attacked me but it was still a good drive! I got to talk and see my family and squad tonight. I sure have missed seeing ...

I knew I needed to see the coast, but where? A little internet search in Portland lead me to Seaside, Oregon. I booked a $17 bus ticket for Monday morning to get from Portland to Seaside. The ride was a quick hour forty five climb over the Coastal Range and descent to the Pacific. The furs, the cedars, maples, hemlocks, and moss make for a very entertaining ride.
The friendly and knowledgeable bus driver pulled ...

We also enjoyed watching the cruise ship ferry people from the dock to the ship out in the river on small boats. Then they sailed on to their next destination.
