Our family had a great experience at this hotel. The reviews made me nervous to book at this location but the staff is wonderfully helpful and kind. The room was spacious, clean and quiet and the pool area is very inviting. We ate at the attached restaurant and had no complaints with three kids so that's pretty handy too. Access... More

I know that the hotel is undergoing renovations... had I not learned that when reading reviews after booking through Hotwire, I would have been disappointed. The room was average sized and was clean. The lobby and public areas are really nice looking and the front desk staff was pleasant when we checked in. It worked for a place to sleep... More

GP_PDX - Thank you so much for your comments. We will be undergoing a full scale renovation in the coming months, to update our rooms. Trust me, I am not fond of the industrial style toilets either. We took over this property last July, & although we maintain a good level of cleanliness, the toilets are just not "cool"...definitely saying... More

I'm just going to make a list... 1. The person at the front desk was snooty and rude at check in. 2. The rooms are dated and the beds are very hard and uncomfortable 3. The hotel did not provide any information about the hotel, breakfast times (I guess because they don't offer breakfast), pool hours, or even that you... More

Stacy, thank you so much for your feedback. I want to apologize that our hotel was not up to your standards, You are correct, we do have so much opportunity with our rooms, furniture, layouts, as we can be viewed as "dated", as we just took ownership last Summer. We are undergoing a large scale renovation, and would like to... More

The room smelled like old smoke and the bed sheets were dirty. I was duped by the Hotel Tonight! I would have preferred to sleep anywhere else. The grounds looked promising with an outdoor pool, but the reviews were just as bad as the experience.

JaDMorgan - My sincerest apologies for the condition of your room & surrounding areas. Our hotel will soon be renovated, however, this does NOT excuse dirty linen or smoke smell. We are a 100% smoke free hotel, and at times struggle with guests pushing this rule.. Please contact me directly the next time you make your way to our area,... More

We drove in from Boise to depart from Seattle on a Norwegian cruise. The Sea-Tac and downtown Seattle hotels were super expensive and parking was even more. This is a great place to start and finish the cruise and when you are a guest, parking is included. Reservations also made arrangements to secure a driver (11 people-it was an awesome... More

This is an average facility. Most employees were nice but one was rude. Had a layover and airline put us up. We were trying to be positive ,but by the time we were done staying here our attitude was not so good. Would not stay more than a day or two.

We booked directly through their website after finding reasonable rates on other travel websites. They offered a "romance package" which included champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and tickets to the breakfast buffet for only a slight extra cost. It was worth it, as we all giggled about our "extras." The staff was friendly and the rooms and common spaces were clean.... More

I picked this property because it appeared to be both a short walk to the local Subaru dealer, where i had to meet a tow truck driver at an early hour in the morning, as well as was very near the Amtrak Station where I arrived at 10:30pm the night before my meeting. The location of the property was both... More

This is my fault. After a week and a half on Vancouver Island and off, we stayed in a number of places that all were spacious and had refrigerators and microwaves.
