    Historical Traveler Reviews Hillcrest Inn Seaside

    Wonder experience


    Great place to stay, nice and friendly people, close to the beach,shopping and restuarants...The rooms are comfy and clean..plus you can bbq in the courtyard.

    would recamend it to anyone!!

    Great stay at Hillcrest Inn


    We stayed here for three nights and found our room to be very clean and comfortable a real bargain for the asking price.The staff was also very courteous and helpfull. What we especially liked was the fact that everything ; the prom; the aquarium; the beach; the turn-around; arcade{for the kids}; was all within walking distance from the Inn.

    I would highly recommend this motel to anyone stopping in Seaside or vacationing there.

    Unpleasantly Surprised


    We stayed at this facility on Feb.24.2006 for 2 nights. We were in Rm 121. Our opinion is listed below:

    Pros: Helpful Front Office Staff Member helped me find a clinic when I became sick. She was friendly and went the extra mile for us.

    Cons: Carpet was filthy.

    Dusty lamp over table.

    Toilet leaked at base.

    Noisy heat register was very distracting.

    Parking is limited.

    Bottom Line: I can't recommend this facility to anyone.

    The Hillcrest Inn has a wide variety of rooms and we feel that though we are small in size we can provide almost anything a guest wants in a fashion that will leave the guest with a happy experience and wanting to come back. We make every effort to satisfy the dissatisfied. We are so sorry that this particular guest went away unhappy without giving us the chance to make it right.

    Home sweet home.


    Our toddler opened the door to our room and quickly announced "home sweet home". That pretty much says it. This is not a 'bed in a box' with a pool--there are plenty of big motels nearby for this. But there are blankets and toys for the beach, and the staff and the place make you feel like you are visiting, and not just staying-over.

    Clean, Great Service, Thin Walls


    Okay, tempted to give this place 3 stars, however, they had really helpful, friendly service that it really gave me a great experience, despite the thin walls. We just needed an overnight during a cruising trip down 101, and found they had a deal on a little room online. Unfortunetely, I booked it maybe a millisecond after someone else did online, so I didn't get it. But when I called in to ask what happened, they were extremely accomodating, giving me a very nice rate on another room. We were happy to find a very clean basic room. No frills, but just what we needed for the night. There were even extra pillows in the closet, which was quite nice. However, on the part of being quiet, I have to say, the walls are pretty thin. We listened to everyone around us take about 3 consecutive showers starting at 8 pm, glad it wasn't 8 am as we're late risers. And the room upstairs must have been on their honeymoon...so they kept us up most of the night. I would recommend this place. They are friendly, accomodating, and have very nice clean rooms. However, I'd suggest getting a top floor room, perhaps on the corner.

    Hillcrest Inn cozy and comfortable


    My family and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at the Hillcrest Inn this past August. Affordable rates, spacious rooms (some with gas fireplaces) and an incredibly friendly and helpful staff made our visit to Seaside that much more enjoyable. A short half-block walk to the beach, and just a couple blocks off Broadway, its location makes it a must as well. Wanting to stay at the Hillcrest Inn will make me return to Seaside sooner than later.

    Hillcrest was supercute!


    We stayed in a spa room and barely left! It was so cute and very relaxing. I would recommend anyone stay at the Hillcrest. When we did leave, it was within walking distance to everywhere in Seaside and that proved very nice during the wine walk. Everyone in Seaside was very nice to us. We had a wonderful time and will visit again.

    Our stay at the Inn


    Where do I begin? Four soaking wet Canadians with no intention of camping in a tent another night!

    We where soaked, our stuff was soaked and the Hillcrest Inn had everything we needed. A kitchenette to cook all the food we packed. A SHOWER to get rid of all the sand, and most important a fireplace to dry out just about everything we brought with us.

    The Hillcrest Inn's reasonable rates got us to stay; their friendly service is what will keep us coming back. Thank you again to Jay Lieberman and the staff at the Hillcrest!


    Delighted in the OLD WORLD type hospitality shown by the management


    We were a group of 8, spending a weekend to prepare a program of movie critiqing for seniors. We discoved such a delightful host in the managers and the accommodations were so comfortable, that the work sessions were converted to recreation sessions. THE CITY OF SEASIDE WAS A PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO THE graciousness of the INN.

    WE all gave both the city and Inn 5 Stars.

    The Best


    My experience with Hillcrest Inn was very enjoyable, from the first phone call to make reservations to the handshake from the owner on my last day.

    The Inn is very family oriented. It is closed in from the streets, so it's very private and quiet.... The people at the Inn, were the kindest and friendliest I've encountered in a very long time.. Everyone greeted you at anytime of the day with a smile and was always willing to assist you with anything you needed...

    The owner Jay, was extremely helpful with directions and was always smiling.... I recommend Hillcrest Inn at the highest level. They are simply the best.

    The rooms were wonderful. Clean and crisp. I felt very comfortable. The beds are extremely comfortable and I was very relaxed and enjoyed just being in the room.... They have spas and fireplaces in the room that just made it even better than expected.... You get alot more than what their rates are.....

    I'm looking forward to going back to Seaside and I will stay at the Hillcrest Inn....

    From Portland we drive west to Seaside, a resort town on the Pacific shore, 7 miles north of famed Cannon Beach, home of the famed haystack rocks.

    Our first trip here was way back in '87 when we drove the Honda Prelude to California, tent and camping gear in tow. Craig is lamenting that we are not in the VW van on this trip, and we expected to see lots of them in Oregon, especially here at the beach. Instead the state is infested with Subaru Outbacks. Alas, we are a ...

    ... there is something else I recognise. The local school looks very familiar – and I recognise it from another movie. This is the school from Kindergarten Cop, so I grab a couple of quick photos. The next thing to do is go and see the seals down by the dock. There is no one else here, but we can see the seals on one of the piers a little way away. William comes out to see them as well, before we pack up again, and head out of ...

    Further towards the top of this road it gets narrow with no shoulder and a 1,000 foot drop is about a foot of gravel away from the edge of the road! A bit un settling as the motorcycle provides an unencumbered view of ...

    ... small town museums because each one is so unique and the locals usually have some great stories and insights to share. Virginia told me about brothel activity in the old logging towns of Aberdeen and Raymond area, an entrepreneurial bootlegger turned fisherman and a great story about a murderous cook. One of the items on our scavenger list this year is "oh look, a chicken" and lo and behold if they didn't have a chicken in the Seaport museum. I did ...

    ... every thought every word.

    After blessing Creator for things small and large, easy and difficult, comfortable and uncertain, I made my way slowly and happily back to the hostel for a collaborative fresh tuna dinner with Levi. We shared a bit with Laurel - a Hawaiian mother and wife with incredible faith in Christ Jesus, sincere Love, enthusiastic encouragement, and a giving heart. Laurel was assisting her friend, 88 year old Pearl Harbor veteran, on his ...
