I stayed in motels like this when I was a kid on road trips with my parents, so it was a bit nostalgic for me. The motel itself is located on a main road (there are a few other motels in very close proximity if this one is full!). There aren't a great deal of things around, but you can...

Very friendly front desk staff. Helpful, polite, thoughtful & kind. Lobby had fresh chilli if you so desired on check-in. The hotel has been given a facelift from the previous Lamplighter livery it once had. I can not go so far as to say it was renovated, however. New paint has been applied to old walls and ceiling, and newer...

We enjoyed the 50s decor and appreciated the microwave and small frig. The rooms were small, and were a bit overpriced. The staff were very friendly. They didn't open until 7am, which was a bit late for those wanting coffee and an early start.

There are better hotels out there, but you won't find an affordable motel that's nicer or more fun than this one. And the owners are super-friendly. If you stay near the front of the motel, you will hear a lot of loud traffic, though.

First the hotel will not accept a debit card when you check in. I was actually told by the manager that I could go to an ATM and withdraw a hundred dollars to put down as a damage deposit. I was lectured about the difference between a debit and a credit card. Most hotels just put a hold on your...

We loved the Atomic Motel. It was clean, affordable and the staff were super helpful and very passionate about Astoria! We didn't have to crack open the guidebook at all when we were there the front desk staff were so helpful!

This motel was a very nice surprise. It is a 1950s motel that has been remodeled in the theme of the 1950s. The room and décor were very nice and quiet. The shower in the bathroom may be problematic for tall people though. The owner (sorry but I don't remember her name) was extremely nice and pleasant and was most...

Had great night there ! The owner was super friendly and was an awesome host! I would definitely stay there again! They were in the middle of extensive renovations but we were aware and didn't really offer a problem. The new things he was planning on doing sound AMAZING!!!

This motel has come under new ownership. Carpets and matters are new. New decor and paint job. Walls are thin and while you don't really hear street noise you can hear noise from balcony and rooms next door. A nice lobby? Helpful staff, & complimentary snacks and drinks. Room clean. It's an older building and you can tell in some...

We spontaneously booked this motel for price and reviews. Upon checking in we were greeted by an adorably enthusiastic woman who I believe is the owner. She gave us great tips about activities and invited us to taste her homemade fantastic clam chowder. The rooms are recently cosmetically renovated and have a 50's style. At first it looks really cute...
