Recent guest reviews

Nicest hotel in this area. Walking distance to several restaurants and stores. Easy on/off freeway. The hotel and room were great except for the shower. they gave us a handicapped room (not requested by us). The shower was hand held only with little pressure and the slide it was stored on was broken so the shower would not easily stay on. Except for the shower we were pleased with the room. I got the impression that if you book the lowest priced room on orbitz or other site you might get stuck with one of their 4 handicapped rooms.

Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Lots of outlets for devices and two tables and chairs (single queen room). Breakfast had scrambles eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and waffles for hot choices and cereals and pastry etc. Lots of seating for breakfast. Convenient location near on ramp for I-5.

The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating food was excellent!

We enjoyed a pleasant check-in, a well-maintained room, and a tasty breakfast.

Excellent place to stay for a night on the way to Mt. Rainier. Really loved their breakfast

The room we stayed in is a comfortable clean room, the staff is friendly.

Quiet, clean room with great breakfast. The staff was cheerful and helpful.

A little over priced for location. One morning I was running late for breakfast had a very poor selection left, but other days breakfast was great. Clean rooms and comfortable.. Staff were all wonderful. The nice touch warm cookies ever night at 6 o'clock .

This is our second time, and it's still one of the best in the whole trip. Very comfortable with the bed, the room set up, plenty of space, easy connection to Internet. Besides all good stuff, we can not forget the full hot breakfast. Highly recommend this hotel when you are in this area. Trong Nguyen

This hotel was right where I needed it to be! The location was great for my purpose. The hot breakfast was pretty amazing. The beds are not super comfortable, but that was really my only complaint.

Clean, quiet, roomy....close to Downtown Olympia. Our purpose for the visit was to attend a wedding, We enoyed the stay as Olympia is quaint and on the waterfront. We had a delicious seafood dinner at the Marina. Easy drive to Seattle to visit family while there. An overall enjoyable experience.

Imoressed with room. Staff was excellent, breakfast was better than average! Great food selection.

Hotel was good, but I really wanted to be able to soak in a bathtub. I was given a handicap room which only had a shower.

This was perfect, had been driving all day, called the wife at 9:30 PM and had her book me a room, (where ever, at this point). Pulled in and was greated by a nice gentalman behind the desk,,, getiing the room was a breeze, then of course the spa area closed at 10pm, i was being a smart *@# when i asked, how stricked the rules were on the hot tub, without so much as a hesitation, he said,,, take your time, relax. after around an hour and firmly feeling like gumby, I walked up to the desk to say thanks. the counter guy, (and i do very much wish i could remember his name) he mentioned that he noticed while i was hauling in my gear, that i had my mountain bike broke down into 3 pieces, and hanging on the lugadge cart. he asked how much of an enthusiest i was, ( i am a 70 to 8 mile a day rider) he then suggested that, I ride a nearby trail in the morning,,, I laughed and said that as tired as i was, I would probably be doing good to make the 12pm check out, so i might pack up the truck, then if ok leave it parked there for a few hours, He looked at his computer, then said,,, its a slow day tomorrow,,, if you are not in a hurry, Feel free to sleep in and leave your gear in the room till 3 or 4, i will note to the maids, to clean your room last. Now i have to admit, I had stayed 2 nights in a differant area just before that, in a "nicer, more expencive hotel" and it didnt even have a microwave in the room, and to boot, even staying in the same room, with the do not disturb sign out,,, the maids were almost knocking down the door promply at noon there. Moral of the story,, I slept more soundly, and in a way more comfortable mind set, at the best western, and saved a few bucks to boot! and i must say,,, the microwave popcorn was warm and yummy! Sir, please forgive me for not remembering your name, but thank you, as a tired, and missing my wife traveler, It was very nice to have someone look out for me for a change!

Adequate for us as a place to sleep and clean up. Nothing extra. Staff was very accommodating and friendly and the rooms were clean. It is in a sort of out-of-the way location. No big restaurant chains close by although fast food eateries were near.

very quiet and comfortable

Nice hotel for the price. The continental breakfast had a variety of choices and the staff was helpful, if not over-friendly. Room was clean and adequate. The only negative on my stay really was noise level. There was a family with some wound up kids in the next room over, and the hotel was cleaning the windows the morning of my departure. But these won't probably be concerns for future guests, just happened to be my experience. :-)

The location was great however there was no dinning close by.

Although the location of the hotel was "convenient", it was located right behind a gas station on a busy street. Friendly desk clerk. Rooms small, paper cups for coffee, not sparkling clean & bedspread/linens seemed a little questionable. Air conditioner didn't keep room cool enough at night. We won't go back when we travel to visit family in the Olympia area.

A pleasant stay for a good price. Easy walk to Starbucks, cute Mexican restaurant with full bar next door. If you're used to traveling top-tier, you will find the amenities disappointing--thin carpets, thin linens, a noisy heater/AC unit. But it's reasonably clean, feels like a safe place to be. Staff is courteous. The area immediately around the hotel is not particularly attractive. There is a gas station right in front of it, and a boarded up fast-food place, so don't expect to look out your room window and sigh with pleasure. Comfort yourself with the knowledge that you're not far from remarkable natural beauty.
