Before giving the review, I’ll point out that I prefer staying in the center of towns. I don’t want to be right off the highway or by the airport, I want to be in the town (or city, whatever the case happens to be). This little motel served that purpose, allowing us to explore the streets of Shelton before tucking... More

Four simple words: DO NOT STAY HERE. Firstly, the advertised rate of the first page of their website states CLEARLY: "Special - $39.95 per night, double occupancy." That should have been the first clue. Secondly, it is NOT is a good part of town...which is pretty obvious, since Shelton is a very small town. Thirdly, when I checked in, my... More

Shelton is a comfortable city and the hotel is ideally located on the edge of downtown. I have stayed in this hotel twice now. The price is right and the rooms are old but clean enough. Unfortunately, my most recent stay was rather unpleasant because of a strong odor of mildew. Maybe it was just our room, but I suspect... More

We were looking for a small cute town for a little getaway, a place where you could walk to everything. Downtown Shelton has many neat little businesses that could make for a nice time if you like to walk to things as everything's right there! Unfortunately we were on a tight budget for our "getaway," and it was great that... More

There was no where else to stay and I was too exhausted to drive on to Bremerton. This motel was the only game in town. I was leery when we had to sign out the TV remote. To be frank--this motel is old and the floor isn't level. The doors on the room are new, but the furniture is not.... More
