We needed someplace cheap, close to the freeway & bedbug free. That's exactly what we got. Just the two of us, this worked, if I had the kids with us, we wouldn't have stayed. The rooms are outdated, smell like they were smoked in, bathrooms are going to need a remodel soon (tiles cracked & falling off) but works. The... More

After 2 fiascoes in one night, we thought we were going to be disappointed again. This property is being converted into a Motel 6 and a lot of rooms were not available. We needed 2 beds and were just mentally spent and tired. Tanya informed us that she probably didn't have one clean enough due to the remodel, but she... More

Not too bad if you must have a place to lay your head for the night. That is if you like hard beds and flat pillows. Avert your eyes at the bulging tile in the tub surround. Hopefully someday they will repair it. It was clean, roomy enough, convenient to get to Mt St Helens the next day, and everything... More

We pulled in after a day of motorcycling in 100 - 108 degrees and were wiped out. The sign that said "Elvis Presley slept here in 1962" made us smile. We decided if it was good enough for The King it should be good enough for us. It was clean, reasonable rates - sadly, we could have used a pool,... More

Poorly maintained... Staff doesn't care (Arab, India or Pakistani?)... Marginally clean rooms... Worn furniture. Had to stay in this hotel since all the rooms within 60 miles were full. In hind site, I would have been better off sleeping in my car. There is a reason the rooms are cheap and available.

Good value is not worth disgustingly dirty rooms, hard as a rock bed and traffic noise. I don't think they have put anything but bed linen as new since Elvis stayed there. The man at the front was unfriendly and there was no iron or coffee.

Booking online you are warned: 2 day advance cancellation else you forfeit one nights stay... Well they must make a lot of money that way! We checked in: Where do we potty the dog? "Right around the back of the building" Well the back of the building was across the street to the weedy unkempt area of no sidewalk -... More

For a highway frontage road location you get what you would expect. A decent price and a variety of characters for neighbors. The rooms were a bit cleaner then I expected, but still could use a bit more attention to details (such as cleaning under the chairs and table). I love the town and the locals seem really nice. If...

Our room was clean and included a fridge and microwave (both also clean). There's coffee in the office and the manager was nice, though not chatty. Free Wi-Fi. Not super quiet since it's by the freeway but it didn't keep me up either. Nice place, would stay again!

This hotel was clean in the bathroom, but the carpet and chairs were not. Dust covered the broken lamps. I literally stripped the bed and slept with my pillow and blankets. I can't say you get what you pay for. Because it really wasn't a bargain at $77. Close to fishing
