One of the quirkiest hotels in Seaside, the Ashore Hotel features family-friendly suites with bunk beds for the kids! Their central location puts you one block from the beach and mere steps from the shops and restaurants of downtown. Kids will love the heated indoor pool and free bike rentals, while parents will appreciate the mix of modern and retro decor that sets the Ashore apart from other chain hotels in Seaside, Oregon. Mostly, though, those bunk beds in a separate room of the suite, will quickly put both kids and parents into relaxed vacation mode. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, in-room refrigerators, DVD players, fireplaces in most rooms, bathrobes, a dry sauna, outdoor fire pit, and an onsite bar.

My kids and I stayed here while we were visiting Oregon last summer. The location is great just a short walk to the beach. The staff we met weren't very friendly as they greeted with a long speech about all of their rules as we were checking in. Perhaps they are used to guests who dont respect their property but the last thing I needed after a long drive down the coast was a lecture on rules. We're on vacation. I would rather just head to the beach.
I realize some people who are traveling to the coast when a plane trip is involved won't be able to pack extra blankets, but as someone who doesn't like to sleep in a hot room but needs blankets to counteract this, I had the fortune of a previous stay at one of the other hotels in the same brand and knew I'd need to bring some. The bed was comfy, but definitely not enough bedding available. Everything else? FANTASTIC. Well worth the cash spent for the room.
