Spent 1 night at the Peppermill, on my way through Washington with kids, and just needing a place to crash. Even for that, this hotel is NOT WORTH IT. Rooms are pretty basic, mattresses have seen better days. Very noisy - could hear hallway conversations clearly. Tiny bathroom with stains and peeling wallpaper. Worst was the staff. Front desk staff... More

Hotel is right off the highway, convenient location. Staff from the front desk to housekeeping, all very helpful and friendly. Price is good, the rooms are spacious, very clean and beds are comfortable. Nice size refrigerator in room along with microwave which has been nice during our 4 day stay. Continental breakfast has a good selection, no onsite cooked items.... More

Freeway close. Quiet. Huge parking lot. Big lobby. Trampoline beds (seriously, sit down, go down 4 inches, bouncy, bouncy, bounce). 4 half size feather pillows (soft but lacks support), roomy room, LOTS of lighting, and not dark at all. Portable size tv, dresser, accessible wall outlets. Now, there's the bathroom. Take 2 12 inch tiles and 1/4 of a tile... More

Good motel at a resonable price. Clean spacious rooms, comfortable bed, microwave and refrigerator, good pet policy, easy parking, and nice staff. Quite a bit better than any of the other motels in the area. I will stay there again.

The owners and staff did a great job with this hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is very helpful and friendly, breakfast is great, quiet neighborhood (although next to the I5). I would stay here definitely again. It´s also suitable for longer stays, unlike many other inns.

Facility was very clean, very comfortable, staff is friendly, parking was safe, and I won't complain about the free breakfast because the room was very reasonably priced....easy access to the I-5 and simply the best in town.

We've stayed here a number of times and its always great. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean, the beds are fine. We stay away from the freeway side and its not as noisy. The microwave and refrigerator are a huge plus. Away from the hotel row but a Subway and coffee place are very close... More

This hotel was reasonably priced along Highway I5. It was quiet, comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was what you would expect for a continental breakfast. I certainly would not hesitate to stay there again.

Spent a night here on the way to Oregon. Convenient to I5, outlet mall and restaurants. Room clean, A/C very noisy. Breakfast so-so and was disappointed to find no decaf coffee - was told there were not enough guests to bother! I feel that one guest wanting this would have been enough. (There was decaf in the room but once... More

We found this on TA after leaving a very disappointing lodging experience in Seattle. It has been a refreshing respite after a long week! Impeccably clean, great comfy beds and Derek, at the front desk could not have been more accommodating! Fabulous price and worth every penny and then some!
