Bottom Line

High on value and low on frills, the mid-range Lanai at the Cove is a good choice for vacationers looking to get away from it all. The oceanfront location two miles from the center of bustling Seaside requires a car but gives immediate access to a rocky beach popular with surfers. Rooms are individually owned and decorated, and some are pet-friendly, so inquiring about the specific room prior to booking is essential. Each room has a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave, those that face the ocean include private balconies. An outdoor heated pool is a nice perk for this price range.

Limited public space encourages seclusion

There's not much in the way of public spaces at Lanai at the Cove: instead of encouraging gathering, the vibe here caters to those looking to get away from it all, including other people on vacation. There are quiet hours everyday and a general peaceful and zen feel throughout the property. The three-story building lined with tan siding faces a parking lot and has exterior-facing balconies, motel-style. Indoors, the lobby is as simple as it gets, with a wood reception desk and seagull art hanging on the wall, and not much else. There are a few picnic tables outside facing the ocean and a small heated outdoor pool. 


A car is necessary to get to the town center, but the hotel is situated on a beach. 

Located in a residential part of town about two miles from the center of Seaside, guests of Lanai at the Cove will need to drive to most activities like dining and shopping. But surfers will appreciate the hotel's location on a rocky beach that's popular with those looking to ride the waves. Overall, this is a beautiful and quiet oceanfront location at the base of Tillamook Head: a top spot for lovely sunsets. The lights of Seaside are visible just across the water and best viewed from the lanais and patios available in the oceanfront units.


Without seeing a room in person, there's no telling what kind of decor to expect.

Lanai at the Cove's rooms all have different owners so decor reflects their individual taste and budget for upkeep. Design styles ranges from contemporary with fresh bedding to dated with heavy wooden furniture and a vintage recliner. Full kitchens, hairdryers, and microwaves are standard, and rooms facing the ocean have balconies or lanais. Some have electric fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, and are pet-friendly, for a fee. The quietest rooms are found on the third floor while the ground floor rooms offer easy access to parking, the beach, and the stone fire pits. 


Free Wi-Fi and an outdoor pool

With free parking, free Wi-Fi and complimentary coffee and tea, Lanai at the Cove offers a few freebies, but not much in the way of features other than a heated outdoor pool and fast access to a rocky beach. Picnic tables overlook the water and there are fire pits on the beach itself.
