We stopped for only one night and had a great stay. We phoned for a reservation and the reservation person was kind enough to ask what potential discounts we might be eligible for. After giving us a pretty good rate, she signed us up for their Hello rewards card which gave us an even better rate. We arrived and were... More

We were very happy with the hotel. The food was delicious. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The beds were comfy and the hotel was very clean. The hotel was a tad bit hard to find but Google Maps fixed that problem. The location was close to everywhere we wanted to go.

I've been here once before for business about two years ago and when I left the first time I had hoped that perhaps the hotel would be upgraded. Fast forward two years later and everything is still the same...maybe the TV got newer but frankly I have bigger concerns. No in room safe in any room. No thermostat on any... More

Mark: Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that we weren't able to make a better impression on you this time. While we have had some upgrades in the last two years, including a bedding package, flat-screen televisions, new carpets and lobby furniture, we understand that our customers expect more. We're pleased to announce that the Olympia property will be... More

From start to finish, we were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. While it is in need of some updates, it still maintains a cozy atmosphere. The front desk staff were welcoming and friendly at check-in and ready to answer questions about the surrounding area. Our room was nice and clean and accommodated us perfectly. While we didn't eat in the... More

Got to our room and it was freezing - the heater wasn't working. Had to wait (while kids were bouncing off the walls ready to go to dinner) for maintenance man who couldn't fix heater. So had to haul all our stuff back to the front desk and WAIT IN LINE AGAIN to get a new room. And then the... More

Thank you for this feedback. We are sorry for the way you were treated by our staff. It's frustrating to check into a room to find a maintenance issue. While this happens from time to time at all hotels, there is no excuse for being made to feel that you are a nuisance. Be sure that we will use this... More

We had just spent 2 weeks moving some family into living assisted AND emptying out a 3 bedroom home. We were exhausted. We were pleasantly surprised to find this once elegant facility still in full service. Stopped in at happy hour ...yum...then off to sleep 13 hours. We melted into the lush beds. Wished we would have stayed 2 nights.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Evergreen State College. Thought the rooms were nice and clean, the location good, breakfast buffet decent and view from the restaurant/lounge lovely. In researching all the hotels in Olympia we would most likely just stay here again.

The hotel is in a good location for business in Olympia. It has lovely views of Capitol lake and the room was quite large. It's a solid three star hotel, maybe three and a half. It was clean and not scary. Pool is seasonal. Wifi was fine. Would stay here again and probably will.

We chose this for the view, which wasn't much, but for a nice clean standard room it was nice. No breakfast included; short drive to center of Olympia. Staff were nice; convention guests were loud returning to their rooms after late night drinking.

This hotel attracts a lot of conferences, so if you don't mind a lot of conventioneers running around, this is a nice hotel at a reasonable price. The restaurant is a little dated, but service is good. The lounge is cozy and looks over a beautiful view of Capital Lake. However, the happy hour cocktails are no bargain, as they... More

Pamela: Thank you for your feedback! You are correct, the week you were here was a busy one for the hotel with the state legislature in session. We are happy that you were able to try our new menu during your visit. The garlic potato chips are one of our more popular items! More
