This motel offers an inexpensive stay with great amenities but the reason to stay here is the very awesome views of the Columbia River from high a top a ridge. It is a very quiet stay with a free breakfast and a great hot tub overlooking the river. On the evening we stayed, a deer walked passed our room at... More

What a surprise. This motel is located at the top of a cliff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. The view of the bridge to Washington State, the river and the ocean defies description. It is simply exceptional. This is another Travel Advisor Property of Excellence award winner. This is a property that has been remodeled to meet current day standards... More

Most rooms at this Motel have a view of the peaceful Columbia River. Rooms are large and clean. Extensive offerings for breakfast; very pleasant breakfast rooms with fresh flowers on the tables. Good value.

This place is a little out of the town but it is very quiet and peaceful with a fabulous view and terrific hottub! The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. They also provide a free breakfast and coffee in the morning. We will definitely be back!

Astoria Crest is unique because of the beautiful hillside view of the Columbia River. The location a little out of town made it more economical than other motels within walking distance of amenities and dining. Even though I paid extra for a room with a view, it was small, up a flight of stairs, and could have used some updating.... More

Wonderful location with a great view. Beds are comfy, great people at the front desk and the staff is gracious and above helpful. It was so nice to lay in bed and be able to look out at the Columbia River with the ships with their lights on with the bridge in the distant background. Stunning. We loved the quaint... More

Finding a hotel that is friendly for wheelchair or walker users can be a challenge. This property went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and user friendly. We were in room 105 which is designated as a "handicapped" room. This room was very spacious and had a hardwood composite floor, making walker maneuverability very easy. The bathroom... More

We spent three days in Astoria and stayed at the Crest Motel. What a great find. The room was spacious, had a view of the Columbia river, and was a quite area just outside of Astoria. The Motel is an older property but don't let that stop you from considering this property. It is well maintained and there is a... More
