Not the fanciest, but a value place to stay. Good showers, beds a bit soft. Staff very friendly and helpful. For a clean quick stay it's ok. Close to everything Tumwater or Olympia. Get a room opposite the freeway. A bit noisy if not. Close to food and coffee shops.

checked in after a 12 hr drive from Reno, it is a large complex and we were given a ground floor room around the back of the complex.Opened the door and even the heavy smell of cleaners and disinfectant couldn't mask the smell of wet dog.The quarter mile hike to the ice machine was made interesting by all the swarthy...

this motel was hard to find - not on the main drag and their signage was not great, but i found them. the room was clean and CHEAP, which is what i needed. I also felt safe. There was ample parking. All the staff I encountered was helpful and pleasant.

My husband and I wanted a basic, inexpensive room to stay in the night before we picked up our new puppy. We have stayed at Motel 6's before and they always fit our needs. This particular location we wouldn't stay in again. We booked a nonsmoking room only to arrive and have the room we were given stink like an... More

No problems. Clean room, everything worked, basic $3 internet was fine for e-mail and web. (I didn’t try streaming movies.) Bed a bit lumpy, but firm and I slept fine. At $60 it’s hardly a great value, but this was a summer weekend and the I-5 corridor is pricey in this area. All in all, no complaints.

I told her that I ysmight need a couple more days until Sunday. She had given me a step up because what I had asked for was not available. But, she let me have the... More

We stayed at the Motel 6 on our way through Tumwater and also on the way back. It was nice basic accommodations. They have recently renovated the rooms with new beds and have put new sinks in and also new showers which are quite cute. If you are looking for all the amenities of a regular motel don't stay here.... More

We were very pleased with the ratio of comfort to price at this little place and would rate it as excellent value. The check in clerk was very pleasant, helpful and efficient. This is an older property, but it was very clean and freshly painted both inside and out. The location next to the freeway was convenient, but we were... More
