Inn At The Prom

... so ticked several boxes for me on my American Experience tour. A particularly grating American hiker had checked in whilst I was reading in the lounge and I'd resolved not to meet him, but in the end it was he who stayed up latest, full of stories about his hike so far-California the destination-and life in the woods, where he lives and works on a small resort, reachable only by boat. My highlight of today was the reaction of one American. ...
... a condo development, all looking out onto the beach, and on the other side are the usual diners and shops, along with piles of arts and crafts shops. The 'Oregon rain' filled lightbulb shop is probably the highlight-they are simple but stunning, and the owner chatty, with her own music playing in the background. Recorded in 2004, I like to think it has been on a timeless loop ever ...
... now closing for winter.
This has made for some tough going, especially when camping. Searching for a place to stay then putting up a saturated tent on a daily basis, after packing up each morning in the rain can dampen the best of spirits. But what I have found consistent is the utter kindness from people I have met on the road. Cold, wet and bedraggled, strangers have continued to humble me with their offers of help, be it words if ...

This is a stunning piece of history. You let one burn down and now the air museum's lease is running out and they are being kicked out, it will be then used as an RV park and after that there is talk of pulling it down.
For crying out loud, if you want history, bloody well keep and develop what you ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn At The Prom Seaside
Recently my husband was home for two weeks R&R from Iraq. The staff at the Edgewater Inn heard about us, and offered us a night there we couldn't refuse. Not only that, but they were able to give us a room that allowed us to bring our four young children. Many times when we travel it is difficult for us to find lodging for a family of six.
I just walked in
I just walked in to the Edgewater Inn because I was in Seaside for the day. It was such a gorgeous day that I decided to spend the night if I could find a hotel. I walked the Prom and found the Edgewater. It was so very lovely with the flowers and balconies overlooking the ocean. I found the office and was greeted by Bonnie who was so pleasant and accommodating. She gave me the rate (which was quite reasonable) and I checked into an oceanfront. It was spotless and I felt very secure being by myself. I will recommend the Edgewater Inn to all my friends.
A charming place
My wife and I stayed at the Edgewater on our anniversary and I must say it was one our most enjoyable anniversaries ever. The room was clean and comfortable with a very charming atmosphere. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. All in all an excellent experience which I would highly recommend to anyone. Jack
I recently had 8 people from my family stay at the Edgewater Inn on the Prom because we had a family reunion and could not accommodate all the family at my home. They stayed in rooms 6 and 7. These rooms had a beautiful patio between the 2 rooms which enabled us to have our breakfast and coffee before going to the reunion. When we checked in Rush & Bonnie were most helpful in making sure that we were satisfied with the accommodations. I must tell you that the maid service was excellent and upon check-out Bill was most accommodating in helping us with directions to the Portland airport. Overall our stay was one that I would repeat. The rooms were spotless and the service was above and beyond the call of duty. It has been many years since I have stayed in a hotel with the quality of staff and accommodations that the Edgewater offers. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Seaside.
I live in Seaside and decided to watch the fireworks from the Edgewater Inn on July 4th. So I checked into the hotel. I had a cottage-not with a view. It was exceptionally clean and the hot tub was wonderful. Everyone from checking in to the housekeeping staff was fabulous.
On the 4th of July the staff put chairs out on the lawn and provided snacks and drinks for the guests and we watched the fireworks which lasted at least an hour and a half.
I think the Edgewater Inn is the best and will send all my out of town company to stay there.
My first stay at the Edgewater Inn. It was one of the most disgusting establishments I have ever visited. Starting from blood on the curtains, to the bed, and mold in the bathroom. It was so disgusting I was sick all weekend. Not to mention the horrible service I received by the so called manager who denied the bloody sheets and had hidden them at the bottom of the hamper. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. If you enjoy staying in a dump, be sure to visit the Edgewater Inn on the prom. Also as a bonus, at no extra charge, expect the staff to help themselves to some of your belongings.
We realized that we had slept on bloody sheets. (NOT OUR BLOOD). Hotel tried to hide the sheets in the bottom of the hamper. WE (as in my boyfriend and I) had to dig all the way to the bottom of the hamper in order to find the sheets that we had slept on after they told us that they weren't there. There was also blood on our curtains. We were wrongly accused of smoking pot so they would not have to compensate us for the bloody sheets and charged us an extra $100.00. The next day I informed the office that we did not want any roomservice. Received roomservice anyways and found that my jeans had been taken from our room never to be seen again. In addition we had mold in the bathroom, right before check out the employee or so called manager called the police in regards to the pot that we were accused of smoking. The employee searched the room only to find that there was no smoke damage nor any pot. $100.00 bogus fee waived. Bonnie refused to provide info to file complaint against hotel
Wet dog odors/thin walls
Upon arrival in our room, we at once noticed the wet dog odor that was hanging in the stale room air. Even when we aired the room out for a few hours, the smell remained. Then, we were woking up around 2am by the family above us walking around, packing, and banging which of course we heard through the thin ceilings. It was truly a cheap apartment expericence. I will never stay there again nor recommend it to others.
Disappointed by the Edgewater Inn
We've stayed at the Edgewater Inn for the past three years , but won't be going back after our last experience. When we arrived at check-in time we were told our room wasn't ready and we had to wait for an hour to be let in. Upon entering the room we found empty coffee cups and cigarettes that were left by the previous guests. When we pulled out the sofa sleeper at bed time there was no bedding on it, nor was there any bedding left in the room. When we called the after-hours number (the manager/owner lives off-site) there was no answer and no opportunity to leave a message. It's truly a shame to see an inn that once provided such great service has slipped so far.
Great location but small rooms
We stayed there for 3 nights w/ 2 kids. This is a small and cozy motel right on the boardwalk next to beach. Access to beach is great though the view of the ocean is somewhat blocked by the sand dunes.
Rooms are cramped and there is barely any space to move around especially for four people. Bathroom is quite nice w/ a Jacuzzi tub.
Parking is limited but sufficient. The kitchenette was minimal and dishes were rusty (had to throwaway the stuff we cooked) and unusable.
Not all rooms have all the necessary dishes/silverware etc (no wineglasses for example). There is a charge if you leave dishes unwashed when you checkout (reasonable I think).
