I understand all Best Westerns are independently owned but successful brands are standardized. We stayed 4 nights in Best Westerns through California, Oregon, and Washington. Some had free hot breakfast in sit down restaurants, some charged for breakfast and this one in Tumwater had the dreaded breakfast room with disposal paper goods and frozen from a box French toast sticks....

We always try to find a Best Western when we travel,and are happy to say it met with all of our expectations! We arrived quite late, but staff was really friendly and accommodating. I found an Internet rate that was cheaper than their quoted room rate, and after a disscation with whom I asumed was the manager ,they billed us... More

Loved the proximity to all local amenities. Super comfortable beds. The breakfast was complete and well stocked. There was bottled water in the room which was great to have when we went out for the day.

Easy on off from I-5. Hotel has been upgraded since our last stay. Front desk clerks were helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Like having a small fridge and free Wi-Fii. Breakfast in the morning is great. Normal breakfast food.

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

I'm glad that you found our facility to be adequate in many respects. I have spoken with our lead engineer and he has corrected the issue with the shower diverter. In regards to the water pressure, we are in the process of becoming a green property and part of that is having low flow shower heads, which has decreased the... 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

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.
