I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend one night. I didn't need any frills, and this hotel delivered. Very convenient to downtown and the freeway, with a Fred Meyer right across the street. I was on the side away from the freeway, but never heard any traffic noise. While there is indeed wifi available in rooms, mine only... More

We were assigned this hotel when we booked through Priceline.com. We got a great deal, so didn't have high expectations based on the price we paid. We arrived around 2:00 PM and were advised we couldn't check in until 4:00 PM. We asked if we could at least check in and store our luggage so that we were free to... More

We were picked from the ferry and brought to our hotel free of charge. Room was spacious & comfortable, free WiFi & printing, jacuzzi tub & nice continental breakfast. We walked to a nearby pizza pub for supper. Within 1/2 a mile was a great all weather track & wooded trails for running or walking.

Without prior reservation, decided to try here instead of Motel 5+1 or similar. Pleasantly surprised by negotiated room rate $80 for king room on "quiet" side of building which is over the road from I5. Front desk helpful. Room good, fully functional. Comfortable beds. Breakfast (included) fairly standard. Fridge but no freezer compartment. Front desk helped us with freezy packs.... More

I'm not one who gives bad reviews but I was very unhappy with the Guesthouse. It wasn't very clean and the beds were so uncomfortable, especially for the price. The pictures online are very deceiving. I would drive out of town before staying here again.

Great location, comfortable accommodations and the most helpful and delightful staff! Our spacious room contained 2 queen size beds, table and chairs, fridge and microwave, TV - all immaculately clean. There's free internet, a great free breakfast bar with hot and cold options, and even a coin laundry facility. Couldn't have been more comfortable. We actually booked through Priceline.com -...

The price was right and the room was comfortable. Our only complaint would be the room was compact. The breakfast was ok except for the coffee which my wife did not like. It was a central location to some good places to eat and shop but you needed to drive to these locations.. I would stay there again.

I suppose my opinion may be unique, but I would much rather have a small room with nice appointments rather than a big room with cheesy appointments such as a TV sitting atop a microwave, sitting atop a refrigerator. It's all about how one feels in a room they have to stay in for 10-12 hours. This hotel has small... More

Very nice check in counter area. Courteous staff. Slightly better free breakfast than some similar hotels. Parking area is somewhat odd. My room was a little smaller than normal, though nicely laid out. It would appear that my room (204) was about average. A few nice dining locations nearby. Nothing bad to say, but nothing "great" either.
