The ceilings were very low, and it felt a bit like a 1-BR apartment. Surprised there was a kitchen. The bathroom seemed like an afterthought, knees 3 inches from the facing wall when sitting on the toilet. But it didn't really matter because the beds were clean, and bedbug-free. The cable and the wifi worked, and it wasn't noisy, even...

Thank you for the kind words. Some of our rooms are a little different in the layout as this motel was built in 1953, I am happy to hear you overall were satisfied with your stay.

The front desk clerk....he was so great. We stayed for 2 nights. Central location. Only a block from the beach. Rooms were great for the price. We had a full kitchen and room to move with a family of 5. Everywhere we stay , the beds are always different and for me, mostly uncomfortable. When staying at City Center Motel,...

Hotwire had messed up my booking time, and Carmen went above and beyond to fix it and make it as easy and painless as possible. Excellent customer service! Such a sweetheart, so happy that people who work here genuinely care.

This is my second time staying here. I chose this place mostly for price and location. The only issues I have had both times is the pool. It's green water and very strong clorine smell in not inviting. Both times it got shut down due to "emergency" The rooms are clean the beds are comfortable

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am sorry we have fell short on your stay, our pool is very little, when there are lots of people in the pool, we have to close it down to make sure the chemicals are correct and the PH, this is for yours and everyone's safety, I am sorry again....

We stay at the City Center Motel because its our tradition. We happened upon an available room after we got engaged back in 2009 and ever since then we try to stay at this motel if we are in Seaside. I like it because the price is affordable for the proximity to the ocean, the rooms are clean, and the...
