My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Tumwater Inn on Wed. October 15,2014. Very nice place to stay. We were greeted by Grace as we entered the doors . Grace had our reservation up on the computer, talked with us about our vacation, had our keys to our room in no time at all. Grace went far and... More

Before we stopped here, we had never even heard of Tumwater. This hotel was chosen in order to avoid the morning and evening traffic in the Seattle/Tacoma area. What a lucky choice! The room was spacious, spotless and reasonably priced. The staff at the front desk were knowledgeable and friendly. They made you feel really welcome and seemed concerned about... More

This hotel is simply beautiful. The decor is very tasteful, our room was clean and spacious. We would have preferred the sink in the bathroom for privacy, but considering that everything else was so good, it became a small thing. The carpets were so nice, and added much to the overall feeling of the place. The breakfast included guacamole and... More

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.

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.
