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."

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
