I made a reservation and quickly realized that it was made for Fri when it should have been Sat. I called the front desk and they said I had to call Orbit. I immediately called Orbit and they said they would take care of it. I got to the front desk that Sat and they said I had missed my reservation. I said no that was an honest mistake. It was being taken care of by Orbitz. They then told me that they had called back too late (when I had originally called at noon) and that I would be charged. I made a mental note to handle the situation again. But said fine I would take the room for the night (Sat) and then Atomic said they didn't have a reservation for Sat and were full. I left there without a hotel and a charge for a night I didn't spend there. I chose them because of their design and old school feel, over a hotel that was $20 cheaper. I'll now never return and make sure all those I know, don't either. Word of mouth is something that catches on quickly. And instead of going through your customer service process, you thought keeping my money dishonestly was worth it. I guess we shall see. **AVOID**

Cute little place. Everything was clean and in order. Friendly staff and easy to find. The parking lot is a challenge to get in and out of. And the pillows were hard. But I would stays again.

Awesome place, clean, friendly and convenient to all shops.

Great quaint little retro Motel. They even called and checked on us when it got late and we hadn’t checked in.

This is a cool little motel. I’ve stayed there 3 times in the past 3 weeks. It’s like a 1950,s time capsule

Great old retro motel. Staff is great, rooms are older but nice. Great lication

This isn't just a regular motel. It is adorable! We pulled up and my 12 and 17 year old were both delighted! Staff were friendly and helpful.

The style was fun and the rooms were really clean. The staff was really nice. The only suggestion I have is to be aware of the outdoor lounge. My room was right next to the outdoor lounge area and some guests stayed out late for a phone conference call and a cigarette.

The motel was not like any other generic hotel room.

This is a very well maintained older, quality built property. The mid century modern vibe was all over the place. We would definitely stay here again! Excellent value for the price of the room.

Very clean and nicely decorated, Great room for the price. Was a little skeptical when 1st booked but read the reviews and was pleasantly surprised at check in, Will definitely stay again.

good value .....clean....enjoyed walking on the river

I loved the decorations. It’s a great location too. It’s a bit “dingy” but that’s part of the retro charm. The free bicycles to ride around town is a nice touch.

The Atomic Motel is in a great walking distance to food and great coffee...plus the motel also serves a complimentary breakfast, water, and beer from the great local breweries. The room was very clean, great beds and overall, a great place to stay I think it is good value for the money.

This is a super friendly little motel. Clever theme that s carried throughout. They have chili or soup available each evening and a nice little breakfast as well. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. The staff has been very nice each time I've stayed there.

I stayed here for a week while working. The place has been remodeled somewhat since I last stayed here when it was called The Lamplighter. The beds are still kinda saggy, and still a bit musty and the parking is still very tight, especially if the place starts to fill up. Big improvement to the lobby and the decor is modern 1950's retro. There are snacks, chips and salsa, clam chowder and chile available, although I declined to avail. There is a breakfast of fruit, donuts, and oatmeal also offered. When I had to extend they jacked the price on me, I didnt notice until my bookkeeper mentioned it. Good location though with three or four decent restaurants and a cannabis dispensary within walking distance. The WiFi is screaming and that is very important for me. One of the better budget choices in Astoria.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. I am sorry to hear your experience about changing dates was not properly handled by the company you booked with. At the time that the hotel received your request to make date changes, your reservation was within our cancellation policy(as provided at the time of making the reservation on site). On Saturday the room type that you had requested was no longer available and we only had larger rooms. Do the price difference you decided not to stay. I understand that you are unhappy with the charge remaining on your account but please understand there was plenty of time to avoid these charges if the reservation was handled within an appropriate time. Thank you for your review and we hope your stay in Astoria was otherwise enjoyable and hope to see you back some day.
