We stayed here July 5 and extended our 1-night stay to two nights after we realized that we wanted a full day of fun at the beach. It was so convenient being so close to the beach; we didn't have to bring the diaper bag to the beach, we could just go back to the hotel.
the staff was excellent: friendly, helpful and cheerful. the front desk people even gave us the rollaway bed for our 2-year old free of charge!
the waitress at the restaurant was super sweet too - even though the food that they were serving at the breakfast buffet was disappointing -- $13 for cold potatoes, under-cooked eggs and a "fruit salad" that consisted of watermelon only; the omelettes at the buffet were good but only if you're a BIG fan of cheese. I would not recommend the breakfast buffet (check out the Pign Pancake up the street instead!)
the hotel accommodations themselves were average. the bed and pillows were nice, the bathroom in our room had recently been redone. the window sill was a little rusty and the tv was older. there is laundry on every floor but some of the machines are old and rusted. you can hear the people walking above you. we weren't facing the ocean but i think a room on the beach side would be well worth the extra money - the ones with a "city view" all face onto the hallway outside and a guy leaned into our open window at 11pm and asked "how's it going in there?" awkward.
there is a pool & hot-tub that are indoor but have a wall of windows facing the ocean, they are very busy even late at night (the pool is 24hrs) but are nice.
this hotel gets a Good rating for staff & location.

I wasn't expecting anything fancy, but our room was crumby. It felt like a dungeon because it was so dark and old. Our room wasn't even facing the water. I will definitely not stay at this hotel again even though the employees were friendly.

Our room was very small. And although it was obvious the carpet and bathroom were recently remodeled, the rest of the hotel was from the 50's. As we walked by the kitchen, you could see that it was very dirty. Glad we didn't eat there. The service was ok. Nothing special. Definately not worth what we paid for our stay.
Prime location, great hotel staff, overall delightful stay.

I initially had booked a standard 1-queen room a few days before arrival as this was the only type left. Given that my stay would just be an overnight, and that it was going to be a hot summer weekend at the beach (apparently near record temps were reached on August 3, 2012), I actually felt rather lucky to even have that.
After reading several reviews commenting on the vast superiority of the ocean front rooms, I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask for an upgrade upon check-in. I was pleasantly surprised that not only was there such a room available, but that the upgrade would be quite reasonably priced.
All I can really say is wow, wow, and WOW! What a difference! My mother, who I was traveling with, generally pooh-poohs such added expenditures, but even she was impressed by the full kitchen, marble counter-top, enormous room size, comfortable beds (2 queens in this room), and of course the ocean view with a balcony, which we were not expecting to have. In fact, the only minus (if it can be referred to as such) was that it was so unusually hot for Seaside that even with the windows open we needed to open the back door to properly circulate the air (I had brought a fan with us mainly to defer noise, though my understanding is the hotel may provide one on request); in other words, I believe the Shilo would have looked after this and any other issues had we felt the need to express them.
Some other comments to those who might be considering a stay at the Shilo: the location is as central to Seaside as you can get (nice for walking but could be a problem with noise; a fan is recommended for that), with a convenient parking garage (no additional cost to guests), and a complimentary glass of wine for each guest (which you can take up to your room, and for us was actually preferable to a generic continental breakfast as there are many fine eateries nearby). There is also a rather largish indoor pool, sauna, and workout area that we did not use (too many kids, and besides the fair weather during our stay rendered such amenities unnecessary).
During our brief visit, we did check out the connector room behind us facing the mountains, which was the "standard" type we had originally booked for. Although it is quite small by comparison, and I should add is short on privacy given the outdoor hallway, it would make sense for a budget traveler and/or 1-night guest. The hotel staff said that both rooms can be booked as a suite for less than what the two of them separately cost, which would be perfect for guests with a snorer in the party (pets can also stay for an additional fee). If you are planning on staying for any length of time beyond a single night, then the ocean view rooms (probably front or side; I did not see the "loft" rooms) are a must, and absolutely worth the upgrade.
In closing, I had previously only dined in the Shilo's restaurant, and had never before stayed in the hotel, but after this fine experience it will definitely be high on the list of places to consider for my next visit to Seaside. Heartily recommended!
