We visited this hotel for 4 nights and it is not as stated an old hotel but a modern hotel. It was clean, very clean with great housekeeping standards and the best customer facing staff attitude I have ever seen. If you are thinking of booking just do you will not be disappointed! (So it has not got an elevator... More

We spent two nights at this hotel. It is an older hotel property as evidenced by the fact there is no elevator, at least to the 2nd floor. That was not a problem for us as we were not hauling up the heavier suitcases on this stay but it could be a problem for some people. The sink was not... More

We had the pleasure of staying at his hotel for 6 nights as we explored the Olympia area for potential new homes. The location suited our needs perfectly and we were very pleased with the quiet comfort, the friendly staff and the other amenities. We travel light so it was also a nice surprise to discover that there is also... More

I have stayed in a lot of hotels, mostly for business and eaten a lot of "free" breakfast - the breakfast here was fabulous - way more options and good tasting food than most. The staff was also very courteous and helpful

I stayed a night on my way to San Juan Island with my granddaughter and we both thought it was great. Comfy beds. Good shower with fluffy towels. It's convenient to the freeway but there is no freeway noise. Breakfast was unexpectedly good. Lots of variety. The breakfast burritos were delicious.

The BW website lists what I thought was a senior rate which, given my age (70 plus) is what I booked. However at checkin I was told this rate is only available to members of ARP (not sure this is exactly right but assume it is a US based association of retired people). So far as I know this group...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at our hotel. I'm happy to hear that our staff accommodated you with a senior discount. Though the discount online is specifically for AARP members, and in association with AARP, our property is less stringent with our discount policy. In regards to our front desk staff,... More

We chose this location to spend a night because it was between the two major National Parks in Washington that we were visiting. When we checked in the front desk staff person was very helpful - he knew downtown Olympia and guided us to a great area on the waterfront which was scenic and had many options for dinner. We...

Our experience was great. The Best Western Tumwater was just what we wanted. It was clean and attractive. They located away from the freeway and we noted how quiet and well ordered the hotel was. Our room was very clean and attractive. The breakfast was a little crowded but we took that as a sign of where to stay. The... More

I have stayed in many hotels for the last few years. This hotel has the finest staff and is the best hotel, overall, that I have ever been to. Clean, safe, well maintained property with excellent friendly, caring and diligent staff.
