“Adequate Budget-ness”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Cascade Inn on a shopping spree to Washington state. Disappointed that our regular "pick"- The Econolodge- had doubled its weekend rates, we sought out accommodation that was cheap and clean. Not expecting much, we were pleasantly surprised for a few reasons: The room was clean and bright. All bedding and linens were spotless. The staff were friendly and efficient. Location was fine- we were only a 5 minute drive to Bellis Fair and Ross. Amenities included a microwave(clean!) and fridge(really cold!). The only downsides that I saw were some of the "long term" guests across the parking lot could have used some serious detoxing or rehab- but they remained quiet and did not interfere with our time there and we couldn't find a nice pub or lounge within walking distance to the motel. In summary, don't expect the Hyatt, but if you need a budget motel to keep more of your spending dollars in the outlet malls(!) the Cascade Inn is not a bad place to stay!

Oh boy. Where does one begin. A short stopover and place to lay our heads for a quick rest turned into a nightmare stay. Yes, this is an inexpensive two star motel and yes we were willing to forego some luxury to grab a quick nap along our journey, but in all honesty this place is not fit to be inhabited and should be shut down. These owners do not care, and are clearly running it into the ground.

Besides feeling like I was checking-in to a prison with the dishevelled night clerk behind glass, the motel had broken windows, fans haphazardly attached to windows, garbage and items that the owners were hoarding clearly spilling over from one of the units and out into the parking lot. The rooms were disgusting, with burns on furniture, holes and tears in sheets, and pillows that were from the 60’s; flatter than pancakes and as yellow as the wallpaper itself.

Additionally, they advertise free wi-fi. None of the routers actually work. When I inquired twice about why this was not working, the aggressive male owner was quick to dismiss me and accused me that I didn't know what I was doing, and that the WIFI worked fine. I assure you, I know how to hook up a router and connect my phone to Wifi.

Lastly, when we left a nice picnic bag, ice pack, and a glass corning ware dish behind in the room, we decided to pick it up on our way back through town not more than 48 hours later. When we approached the desk, before we even explained what was left, we were told that the items were thrown away and no, we were not allowed to go look for the items where they were discarded. Since the items were brand new, we are sure we know where these ended up.

This place is disgusting and if you go against our advice and decide to go; please sleep in a sleeping bag and bring a pillow. *shutter*
