We left Woodburn and headed to the coast and 1250 miles after leaving San Francisco we arrived in Astoria fishing port on the banks of the Columbia river.The drive up to the Columbia river was pretty good , thanks to sat/nav lady. We wouldn’t have got past Portland without her. We walked on the boardwalk pass where the old canneries- now defunct are. There is a trolley that runs along the river ...

The last two nights we have stayed in places that did not have WiFi so we were all looking forward to being able to get back on line to update apps and games etc. But tonight's RV park has **** poor strength which has frustrated us all. Especially Lydia. It seemed to be the last straw and ...

So, that night we made a fire on the beach and enjoyed S'mores and listened to the surf break while we watched people sending off paper lanterns that would float up over 100ft before going out. It was a night to ...

P.S. We had the coach detailed in Portland and it was beautiful ... until it rained :(

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.
