Hiden Fee, No clean bed sheet

First of all, you probably find this place because of its cheapest price. However, if you book it online, you will be charged an extra $8 "processing fee" by the motel. Your price will be higher than those who call them directly or just walk-in. Found lots of hair on the bed sheet. Looks like they didn't change it. Checked 3 rooms and all of them had the same problem. The staff had no more room, so he offered clean bed sheet, bed cover and pillow cover for us to change them by ourselves. The second morning, the manager offered partial refund for "changing the sheets by ourselves" but not full refund.

a very friendly motel

The motel was easy to find close to freeway and where we were going for a family get together. also close to resturaunts. Staff was very very friendly. Room had a microwave, a refrig. TV; was very comfortable. For the motel only thing I found was I could not get on the internet with my laptop. It insisted I had to put in a code which I did not have nor was not given.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

We are from a non smoking state and when visiting WA that allows smoking in places it really does knock one down. We went to the EQC Casino for our first dinner. The buffet was great (a little high but great food). But when leaving the smoke was sooooo bad in the casino that we could not get out of there fast enough for we just could not breathe. so if you are not used to a lot of smoke stay away from this casino.

motel for cheap

We went to a wedding in puyallup. We were about 5 miles away, great room if you only want to sleep. No pool, or work out room. Only $60.00 with tax & fees.

Never again

First the staff at the front desk automatically upgraded our room for an extra $20 because we wanted a smoking room, but he didn't ask us if that was ok before charging us. Our room was very unclean, there was a pair of underwear by our chair in the room, there was drops of BLOOD on the phone, graffiti on the inside of our drawers, and our fridge did not work (also no microwave). The staff did bring us a new one though. I didn't really feel safe at that hotel either, and thankfully I had my boyfriend with me just in case. I would not recommend this hotel, although some of the other rooms at the hotel looked a little nicer than ours (maybe we just got screwed?). We also had three hangers, one was a plastic one from Walmart, one was a red plastic one, and one was an old metal hanger. Weird. Also a lot of loud people downstairs partying all night. Not recommended for the faint at heart or those looking for a decent place to stay. I will say the best part was the satellite TV we had with HBO. Better than most any motel rooms, although our TV was really old.

For the super budget oriented type

I was just going for bottom line low price on this hotel. If, like me, that is all you really care about, then this place works fine. Otherwise, pick somewhere else. On the plus side, the room was spotless and looked fairly modern, better than expected for the cost. It has the amenities you need for basic comfort, but not much extra (as expected). The only really bad part is the location, right next to a prison or something like that. There were a lot of creepy looking people around. The rooms are exterior (door goes outside, no central hallway), so that does not help you feel any safer. Don't bring small children here. Don't bring anything valuable either. The front office was not much to look at, and the staff was not particularly welcoming, but that is a minor negative. Also, the sink and shower are the annoying ultra low water usage type, so it takes a long time to take a shower or clean your toothbrush.
