Arrived in Seaside late in the day on a road trip, without reservations and some volleyball tournament going on...so we ended up at the Mariner.
There were only 3 rooms left when we pulled in - we ended up with a single kitchenette unit for $124.10. It was obvious from the beginning we were getting fleeced.
When we first entered the room, we were mostly just underwhelmed, and a bit nervous of pulling the sheets back. But after a few minutes, we realized the TV was missing! The cable box , remote and cords were there, but no TV. We called the front desk, and the front desk clerk (very nice lady by the way), was 'shocked'. She immediately phoned 'maintenance', with whom she discussed doing up an 'incident report'. Sure. Whatever - a TV showed up while we were out to dinner. By the way, our front desk clerk recommended 'Norma's', which turned out to be incredibly delicious.
A note about the smell...we noticed that it just generally smells bad east of the slough/river in all of Seaside.
After spending the evening at the beach, we decided to have showers. The bathroom seems to have been recently re-done, with one minor exception. The shower curtain is scuzzy and old, and is too short by about 4 inches. It was a walk-in shower stall, so floor became very wet after showering.
No screen in the window.
My thought when paying the ridiculously high price for the hell-hole room was, 'well at least it's a kitchenette'. We were on a camping/hotel combo trip, and had all our cooking gear in the car. Thank god. There was no coffee maker in the room. One of each utensil. One coffee cup, a couple of bowls. All dirty. Maybe some kitchen gear disappeared with the TV.
The wifi password did not work, and the front desk clerk had no helpful alternative.
If you're in a pinch in Seaside, sleep in your car.

Room Tip: Sleep in your car.

East of Seaside beach awaits just the smallest corner of hell, rife with salmon-scented sheets, and just the tiniest pinch of shame. Welcome to the Mariner.

Our stay began with what one might consider to be a state of confusion. There were three rooms, each with just enough room for a bed, which was convenient because that's all they contained. Complimented by broken a.c., a broken television, broken windows, a sinkless bathroom, and clothes from the previous patrons, it could be safely said that we had found a "rent by the hour" land of leisure.

As the evening continued, a return from the beach required use of the shower. As the shower gingerly began to drissle luke warm water to the plastic tiles below, it could be seen that the shower curtain did not reach the floor. Instead, a cool breeze caught me by suprise and the curtain began flowing delicately in the wind, sending a draft my way that felt a lot like Christmas.

In the night, one is subject to the delightful noises of miscreant drug dealings, some of which go very wrong. And if that doesn't suit you, your neighbors will certainly keep you up with their delightful conversations about life, love, and Nascar statistics on the stoop next door. Most the renters live there, so stoop-talk is gauranteed.

The next morning, continental breakfast is a simple cup of black coffee. So if you're John Wayne or just seem to like the taste of chalk, you're on easy street.
Make sure to set your alarm early though, breakfast ends at 9.

My advice, gather your belongings and head elsewhere. Equivalent prices and sanitary rooms await you.

Last minute trip to Seaside brought me to the Mariner as there were no rooms available anywhere else. Quick and friendly check-in sent us to room #5 which was very clean, and freshly painted. The bathroom was pretty small, but there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The beds were comfortable and we had a quiet night as we heard no noise from neighbors or the street. The pool was in use and looked to be in good shape as well. Short walk to Broadway Street and down to the promenade. Not a bad place at all, I would stay here again.

Overall the place wasn't bad, it was clean and within walking distance to downtown, and the staff were very friendly and pleasant. The walls are a bit thin and you can hear some of the stuff in the neighbouring rooms but it's kinda muffled. The room has a small microwave and a good size fridge but no coffee maker (coffee available at the office, but no hot water for tea), but it had a VCR for movies which I thought was odd since there were no VHS movies available. But I prefered this place over the Motel 6 which I stayed at last time through Seaside.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was good for parents with kid, had 1 double bed and a twin bed in a separate area in a mini room by the bathroom.
