The Atomic Motel, formerly the Lamplighter, offers a fun experience in a period furnished property at a great price... and with special "of the era" treats and surprises. If you want a stay in a place that is cool, hip, fresh, affordable, sparkling clean and super friendly, the Atomic is the right choice for you. We have the charming "Mom and Pop" couple living on site (Barbara and Dan - married for decades and still enjoying it!), complimentary coffee, tea, fresh fruit and local Scandinavian pastries as well as pet-friendly rooms for your own Asta (a delightful dog made famous by "The Thin Man" television series of the 1930's).
The original local's favorite diner, Pig n Pancake, is right next door and you can also get designer coffee at several other coffee shops and restaurants nearby. The Atomic Motel is just a block away from the beautiful Astoria River Walk and Columbia River Waterfront Trolley. We'll give you the inside scoop on all there is to do here... although you might just want to hang out in the lobby in our Jetson Egg Chairs with Dean Martin enjoying "local brews, chips & salsa, sometime soups and local stews." We can't wait to meet you!
Another great perk at the Atomic Motel, grab two retro cruiser bikes and explore the town and pedal the river walk. Another fun freebie.
Have fun meeting people at our reto spacious lobby while having snacks and a brew.
