Have stayed at the motel (formally lamplighter) on numerous visits to Astoria. Have been following the progress of the new retro designs and are so excited to get back and see it in person. Always enjoy the friendly staff and great location. Definitely worth checking out!

An amazing 5-night stay at Atomic Motel. Rooms were really clean and wifi was fast. Breakfast of fresh bakery items and coffee. Also, the homemade chowder and chilli in the evenings, made by Barbara, was fantastic and greatly appreciated. But, above all this, the helpful and friendly staff really made this stay special! Dan and Barbara are great hosts and...

I LOVE mid-century modern. The real not the fakey. This has both in a good mix. Adorable rooms with the old mixed with the necessary new( no one wants a shower curtain from the 50's ) . The rooms are small and very adequate. The beds were comfortable. They allow dogs in some rooms which was what we needed. The...

... we knew we were on the right track when we requested a room on the main floor and got #101 .... since we are driving down the coast on Hwy #1 and #101 it was a sign! Small, quaint, didn't hear a sound even on a busy street. Friendly staff, we would stay again!!

We stayed in this hotel one year ago before the renovation. We had a great time then too, but the hotel really looks beautiful now. Such a fun and interesting space. Lots of different people. Definitely one of Astoria's treasures! Thanks to everyone there for such a fun time.

From the moment we walked into the reception area this motel made me smile. Everything is fun and really well done. Dean made us feel welcome and gave us great information on the town. The rooms are beautifully retro styled but up to date, clean and comfortable. Free bikes are available so you can cycle along the river walk to...

My wife and I can honestly say this is one of the best value motels we have stayed at. New ownership took over in June and you can see some of the old warts, but they have done a great job of updating and cleaning up the building. Fantastic, enthusiastic service Clean and comfortable Low rate Excellent dinner and drinks...

The Atomic is a great place that has a unique vibe. It's a basic road side, old school motel. I stayed in room 206 and found a really clean and comfortable room. Wi-fi worked great. Bed was sleep inducing with good pillows. Shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. Windows can be opened, always a good thing, but...
