I stayed here a couple of nights while doing day hikes in parts of Olympic National Park. I checked in rather late on a Sunday and asked about nearby restaurants that aren't fast food. The front desk staff recommended a place near the capitol building that was a great local diner. Every other interaction I had with the staff exceeded... More

We arrived at the Best Western in Tumwater in the middle of our extended stay in Washington, and entered a very clean, bright, and comfortable lobby. We found out the hotel doesn't have an elevator and our room was on the second floor. Going with the flow, we said that we would make do, but the very welcoming girl behind... More

Stayed here and since it wasn't the BW Plus in Lacey, I thought it might be older and not as nice. Wrong! While the building is older, the rooms have been upgraded and everything was perfect. Beds were comfortable (not too firm, not too soft) for someone with a very bad back. I had no problems sleeping. I will bey... More

We ended up staying two nights instead of the planned one because the hotel was so nice and so centrally located. Great neighborhood, neat and clean hotel throughout. Spacious rooms, friendly and helpful people at the check in desk. Overall just a great stay. Breakfast was extra good. We really can't say enough good things about this hotel.

Great hotel - staff was very friendly and helpful, giving recommendations and printing map for restaurant and checking hours of places we wanted to visit. Full breakfast was great! Quiet, nice location close to Tumwater Falls

We stayed one night at the Best Western Tumwater. We were enroute to the Great Wolf Lodge and the Best Western is about 15 minutes north of our final destination. We stayed at the Best Western due to the reviews we read on Tripadvisor. The hotel is off I5 and is close to Fred Meyer (shopping!). Very easy to find.... More

Good property and good experience, but not obvious because it is hidden behind a gas station, not sure I would have found it without GPS. Stayed there twice on a trip down I-5 and on the return. Very out of the way, although near a Fred Meyer shopping center.

Close to the freeway with a shared parking lot. Friendly staff who worked quickly. Had a reservation for a king, but was told it was on the second floor. No elevator! I have a bad leg so had to pay extra to stay on the first floor. Room was very clean, nicely appointed, and quiet. Food was average.

Stayed here recently despite no reservation. We were looking for a convenient stopover and this fit the bill nicely. Right off the highway, yet nice and quiet. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly! We specifically requested a first floor room as we didn't want to drag bags up the steps with no elevator. Nicely clean place and... More
