Restaurant good, motel not so!

Restaurant was by far the best part. Staff were very friendly. Good variety (including sea food) of food and not too expensive. The motel smelled of mildew.

Salad Bar consisted of wilted iceberg lettuce, a few pieces of tomato, and shredded cheese from a bag. Baked potato was so overcooked, it was hard and yellow. Veggie medley was from a frozen food bag, they had that hard, freeze dried texture. Med Rare steak was burnt and like a hockey puck. Service was slow and I know the... More

The room was hot with no air circulation. No AC, fan or windows that open all the way, no screens on the windows during mosquito season. The noise level was horrible once the "Bar" time started. Room reeked of mold and mildew. The food in café was burnt, and served cold. The service was slow and the staff were not... More

This place is nothing to look at but I have been ordering their Fish N Chips for 30 years! They make a good bloody Mary too.

Stayed 1 night at Tyee Motel and that was TOO LONG!! Asked to see the room first and was told that housekeeping had not cleaned the rooms yet (12 rooms and 12:30 in the afternoon), come back after 2pm. When I checked in, I told the Owner that I had a service animal and was informed that any animal, including... More

We stopped at the Tyee restaurant, looking for some fish and chips. Restaurant is a bit tired, but everything was in order and staff were very friendly. Very full menu. Order taken promptly, with fish and chips delivered to table soon after. Good presentation and very tasty. We would not hesitate to dine here again.

We have been going to the Tyee for 50 years. It used to be a great place for folks to get together and share a meal. It looks like the owners have just about milked this cow dry. We went for lunch and I ordered the special, a cheese, tomato, bacon sandwich. It took 45 minutes for the food to... More

Old-time ambiance, a great salad bar and updated menu. I went there regularly when I lived nearby. Their clam chowder needs improvement but I enjoy everything else there.

Don't know about the motel, but the restaurant serves a great breakfast, and a good lunch and dinner. The chicken strips are the wife's favorite, but I prefer the sandwiches. It is your typical roadside atmosphere and food. You'll probably find some regular locals in the bar and I think they have karaoke on weekends, but haven't attended. The food... More
