The River Inn at Seaside is ideal for a larger family, with many suites that can sleep up to six guests. Located in the heart of town on the banks of the Necanicum River, The River Inn is a step above most hotels in Seaside. As soon as you check in, staff will make you feel right at home with freshly baked cookies and a package of local saltwater taffy. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Kids will love the outdoor play structure and the indoor saltwater pool, while parents will appreciate the private balconies.
One of our favorite reasons to stay here are the free bike rentals. Seaside’s famed promenade is just two blocks away, and is an awesome place for a family bike ride.
Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, mini-refrigerators, microwaves, free DVD rentals, a fitness room, Keurig coffeemakers, and an outdoor fire pit.

The hotel was clean, conveniently located, ample parking and friendly professional staff. The deluxe continental breakfast was a nice addition and featured a variety of items including two different types of waffles.
Terrible room, with a view of the parking lot and entry roof. The room was musty, felt dirty, and you can hear every sound from the hall and rooms all around you. Even the toilet was installed crooked. Once we heard every squeak from the bed above us, we left. We had gift certificates for 2 nights, and went and paid to be somewhere else other than this hotel. Also, the staff was bristly and not too friendly until we said we were leaving, but made no offers to make our stay better.
