This was the worst motel I've stayed at. It stunk and sheets had yellow stains. Too much money for a crappy room. Some guy was getting arrested out side our door. Never will I stay there again, I wouldn't let my dog sleep there.

Being located as we are in the elbow of 512 HWY and South Meridian (HWY 161) the traffic can be noticeable at times, but it is an ideal... More

We've stayed at MP multiple times, up to 2 weeks at a time. Staff always considerate and finds solutions to problems in a timely manner. The owner has been very responsive to customer needs. Rooms have always been clean, convenient, serviceable, free of odors. Beds have always been excellent giving good bodily support. A large variety of top name stores... More

The room was small but for one night it was fine. The bed was rather firm but clean with no smells. No frills, but it worked got us for the night. I would stay there again if in town for one night. Make sure to bring your own hair dryer if you want to use one. There is not one... More

We certainly appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you during your visit to Puyallup and regret that we were not able to fully meet your expectations. All of our rooms include mini refrigerators and microwaves, but they do not include things that many other commercial locations have, ie: hairdryers, irons, coffee makers, dishes, etc. These items are available...

After leaving the motel that is directly across the street from this one I was a bit skiddish...but after getting the room, I realized there is a decent place to stay. The price isn't bad, the room was clean and smelled fresh, the front desk was friendly and there were no problems. Jasons restaurant is also a pretty good place... More

I stayed here last year and it was a dive. I decided to try again because it is so close to the fairgrounds and the description said the room was refurbished. I am not sure which year they did the refurbishing but I can tell you it was not anytime recently! I chose the kitchenette to accomodate all the people... More

First of all, this is not the Ritz Carlton. If you are looking for that, then find a $500 a night place. This is the second time I have stayed here and will be here every year at this time. All I was looking for was a clean safe place to sleep in. I dont require a spa or pool... More

Thank you so much for your awesome review! While we definitely strive for excellence, as you said, we are NOT a big chain hotel. Being privately owned gives us a more 'at home' feel for our guests and we truly appreciate candid reviews. We are very glad to have you as a loyal customer and look forward to your stay... More

Everyone there is so awesome! Amanda put us in a room right above the lobby where we wouldn't have any neighbors so that was a major plus!
