If you are traveling through the Olympia, WA area this is a great place to stay. We have stayed there about four times now and they all have been excellent. The breakfast is about the best we have ever had for a motel breakfast.

I stayed for four days while attending work meetings nearby. Location was very convenient. Easy off and on to I-5. Hotel interior and my room was updated and clean. Breakfast room was nice with plenty to choose from. Nice elliptical in the fitness room. Staff was very polite and helpful. Water pressure in the bathtub faucet and shower wasn't great,... More

Top of the Morning: Enjoyed our stay and feel very comfortable to stay again. Friendly, helpful people that work there. They enjoy their jobs and you can see it in their attitude. I work in the Hospitality industry and sales and the Excellent Service that was expressed was shown during our entire stay. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

It's right off I-5 and only a couple of miles from the state Capitol. Staff are helpful and friendly (for example, offering good restaurant alternatives to the chains located right by the hotel). It is clean and the beds are fine. The showerhead was old and spit out water more like a hose than a shower, and the hairdryer, also... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. We greatly appreciate your input. We are looking for an adequate solution to the water pressure while still maintaining our step forward into becoming a "green certified" hotel. We hope you will consider staying with us again soon.

The staff is awesome, and the facilities are great. Sometimes parking is not the best because the normal sized spaces are filled with abnormal sized pickup trucks (construction contractors?), but I suppose that everyone values a great hotel, and cannot control the vehicle type they will need. The beds are as good as a 5-star hotel, and the lobby cookies... More

This hotel has been redone to update its interior and exterior appearance. Location is good if you are meeting at state buildings located in Tumwater. The location for local restaurants is okay but not much good within walking distance. Breakfast was decent but nothing spectacular. Location is clean on the inside but area around is not conducive to walking.

We appreciate your input. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't find the restaurants in the area to your liking. I'm surprised as we are centrally located near many sit down restaurants, as well as fast food and grocery stores, all within 5-10 minutes walking distance. I hope you will consider staying with us again so we can have another... More

Very clean. Excellent choice for the money. Very efficient and caring staff. Breakfast was amazing!!! Central location for mall, fuel, restaurants and groceries. The only thing I had a problem with was the layout of the room: sink separate from the main restroom.

Hotel is very handy to hwy 5 so easy access. Not very many good restaurants nearby unless you like Mexican or just ok pub fare. Breakfast room is being renovated. Breakfast is a cold "grab and go". Not a great way to start the day. Otherwise accommodation OK.

My mother was flying up from L.A. and I was coming in from NY and we needed a place near South Sound Manor ASAP. We quickly booked the Best Western Tumwater Inn and it was great. The staff was not only gracious but really accommodating and helped us out with our local needs. (We were in town for a memorial.)... More
