Stayed 2 weeks

I have to wonder if the bad reviews of some of these motels aren't left by the competition. Esp as I've seen some of the exact same bad reviews on other sites. I stayed 2 weeks. Considering the price is only 30-50% of fancier places, I bought my own coffee maker, coffee, artificial sweetner, 1/2 & 1/2, fruit for breakfast, back scrub brush for the shower, shampoo, hair conditioner, and I still came out ahead on the first night. This isn't the Ritz Carlton. The room is basic. But the room was immaculate, the bed and desk were comfortable, HVAC was first class, service was great, staff were all unfailingly polite and friendly, there's a library down the street for computer services beyond WiFi (or even free WiFi all night in the parking lot if you get a visitor library card), a nice coffee shop next door, the location is central to everything from Bremerton to Everett. 200 yards from Rte 5. I would be happy to stay there again if I return to the area.

Perfect Economy

This is Motel 6, Fife, WA. That's just an FYI. Realize: I gave this place 5 stars as a 1 star hotel. There is no 5 Micheline Star restaurant here. there is a very nice family restaurant next door. If you're looking for excellent economy, this is it. Very clean, smoke free, as requested. If you get the cheapest rate, read the fine print: You only get garbage pickup and towels every 3rd day. I think those complaining about service just had not paid for it. The desk staff was very friendly, efficient. there was only one girl so If you don't know how to wait in line without someone kissing your fanny, you need to go elsewhere. I'm sure if you are demanding and angry because you have to travel economy rather than the Ritz Carlton, they will not seem so friendly, but they were definitely friendly and knowledgeable about the area with me. If you have business in the entire Vancouver, Tacoma, Pt Angeles area, this is very convenient. This place is clean, basic, safe, and economical. Zaza Gabor does not stay here but I do and I would again. I'm staying 2 weeks looking for a condo. The room was about $40/day incl tax. When I got here I spent an hour and I went to target and for less than $100 I bought a coffee maker, coffee, fixin's, toothpaste, a better towel, Kleenex, shampoo, all that stuff. If you want to pay $98, $120, $150, $200 per night for tiny bottles of shampoo, be my guest. The large NY Steak & eggs at Johnny's next door is an excellent steak. (I thought the name sounded sleezy but the place is very family.) There is a public library about 6 blocks east with guest computers, free wifi, and $0.10/page B/W printing.

Never Again!

My husband and I stayed two nights while are children spent the night with their cousins. Spending the night with family members would have been a better choice for us. The refrigerator did not work so we had to throw our food away the next morning. We had to search through our room for an outlet that worked. There was no iron or ironing board in the room so we borrowed an iron from the front desk. It didn't work very well at all because it kept turning off. It took me about 30 minutes to iron one skirt and one top. Luckily we did not forget our toothbrush or toothpaste because there were no "freebies" available including shampoo and lotion. The only thing I enjoyed about the hotel was the bed which was very comfortable.

Stuck without power

I made a reservation online, using my credit card, and when we got to the hotel, I had to pay for it, and without cash, and my card declining, (not sure why, cause I thought it was already paid for when I reserved it online. I had to write a check to deposit into my own account in order to get the cash for the room. I was very upset with this process. On top of that, when I reserved online, the price was like $87 approx, for 2 nights. When I had to pay for it, it turned out to be over $100. I think this is wrong. THE PRICE SHOULD BE THE PRICE. On top of that, no microwave, refrig, or anything. And wifi extra?. Whatever. I am not likely to use this site again.Very disappointed Sincerely, Theresa Morris

Rude, lying, theives!!

Called to see if my son left his Nintendo DS there they said yes they had it come in and get it. Went in on a Saturday drove 20 minutes and they could not find it. Gave my name and number to have them call me no one called I had to call them three times! Claim was turned over to Coprorate office to Claudette Bryant she sent me a letter did not call and see why I was pursing this and I have called her twice still no response! Totally unacceptable!!! Rooms are not that clean and we were woken in the early morning hours to fights and cars driving like hell threw the parking lot.
