The owners were cheapskates that tried to steal my moneh and broke multiple laws then threatend to call the police on me for being "disorderly"

They are not helpful whatsoever. Tried to cancel a reservation and they refused and kept all of the money because there was no management for the entire weekend. They said they would get back to me and never did. Refused even a partial refund. NEVER GOING BACK!

Good central location to go to Seattle downtown, Olympic pensinsula, Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens and Columbia river area. Reasonable price. okay breakfast. Decent rooms. We were there 5 nights. Some guests who stayed looks shady but were nice to me. Cop car was there one evening - not sure whether it was usual patrol or due to some complaints. Lot of shopping and eateries within 5-10min drive

Quaint little place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly, the worst place we have ever stayed. It started with a not great check-in experience at 9:30pm. We went round and round because they needed the credit card we had made our reservation with to scan into their system. However, the last 4 digits of the card they had on file didn't match any of our cards. I was certain I knew which card I had made the reservation with (and I was right) and they finally agreed to use it even though it didn't match. We finally got checked in and the room was just not great. It is a pretty run down hotel. The AC didn't work, the room was not overly clean, good sized body dents in both the mattresses and their breakfast in a complete joke. The best part with the breakfast is they have a very limited portion that is free then you have to pay extra if you want an actual size meal. To top it off per the invoice that was printed at the hotel for us we were over charged by Orbitz. We won't be back.

Nothing was unique. The staff was rude and disrespectful. The cost of the hotel was way more expensive than what it should’ve been. The rooms smelled like piss and cigarettes. The carpet was nasty.

there was a shooting at the front desk and the manager would not check us in or give us a refund

The bed was terribly uncomfortable , was only given 2 pillows , complained to hotel staff and they said nothing could be done . Was given one towel and wash cloth , it Was a terrible experience . Definitely wouldn’t recommend !

The Good: Room was very clean, bed was quite comfortable. Staff was very nice. The Bad: The person living in their car in the back parking lot was sketchy. And weird. And looked to have been there for quite a while.

Just a room for the night while I had a job going in Lakewood

Great price, location, and friendly staff. The room needs a lot of work many things especially in the bathroom are rusty or almost broken.

Priced right for what you get. Broken toilet seat almost landed me on the floor. Jacuzzi tub didn't work which is why my room was less expensive is what I was told. Long term customers hang out in parking lot all night. Told not to worry because they have cameras. Bed was ok, tv worked, mini fridge worked but had ice build up in freezer.

I booked 3 night. The stuff were nice.The room smelly, the toilet stauked on the second day. , the bathtub faucet not attach on the wall. There don’t have hanger for your clothes.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The worst part was the mattress. The only thing that qualified that as a mattress was that it was covered by sheets. The shower pressure was also weak.

Absolutely no frills. We checked in late and out early to catch a plane, so we were only in the room a few hours. Everything worked, even if dated, and the bed was comfortable. Furniture was a bit worn, but everything was clean.

I booked a two queen-bed room 4 days prior to arrival. I was told that they were over booked and offered a 25% discount with a couch bed or refund when I arrived at about 5pm. How could I find a similar affordable hotel at that time. So I accepted the discount. When I got the hotel and found the discount was not as it offered and there was no additional beddings or towels. I had to go down twice to get beddings and towels. About the discount, I was told to talk to the manager the following morning after 8am. Then the manager told me that it could happened that they were over booked and could only offer $10 discount. My question: Why did they contact me earlier for the booking? The $10 was the difference between a queen room and 2 queen bed room. Not honest. Finally, the manager agreed to give $20 discount. An unpleasant experience!! Not Honest. The bathroom had a bad odor.

It was an uncomfortable stay. I was afraid to sleep on the bed. Nothing looked clean. The best part was the breakfast in the morning. That gets a quadruple A plus!
