“A great stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2007

We stayed here for one night on a road trip during which we became quite attached to Super 8 motels! We stayed here after a wonderful day at Mount St. Helens, which it is really well possitioned for. There's a small indoor pool near reception and the self service breakfast offers a reasonable variety and is plentiful! Our room was quite large, spotlessly clean and had really comfortable beds.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2007

We stay at this hotel every year and few times a year. The price is good. Excellent location to Mt. St. Helens. The coast and Portland are only 45 mins to an hour away.

It is always clean, staff is excellent. Great place for the kids to swim since pool area is always clean. The staff is very helpful when you need anything in getting it for you.

You are close to a mall and many fast food and sit down resturants with the likes of McDonalds right outside the hotel parking lot, pizza at Highlanders across the parking lot which also serves breakfast and other meals and is a bowling alley and arcade. There is Denny's and Sheri's. Then when you cross under I 5 there is Taco Bell, Red Lobster, Izzy's and Burger King.

You are also not far from Longview which offers a larger mall, many more food options.

This is again a great place to stay for the whole family at a great rate!!

  • Liked — Great staff and clean rooms
  • Disliked — needs to be updated a bit in decor and adding more to breakfast that is offered

We stayed there for one night on our way from Seattle to Portland.
It´s a good place to stay to get to Mt. St. Helens.
The room was clean but not very big.
Breakfast was a little bit poor, but even better than gettin` nothing...
But for a stopover (there is nothing to do in Kelso!) it was OK.

Booked this as a cheap one night stopover before spending the day exploring Mt St Helens.

The hotel is on a typical North American freeway junction, sharing the plot with a supermarket a couple of other shops and fast food joints. Accross the junction is a large standard format mall with all the usual shops, Sears, JC Penny etc Izzys buffet and a Red Lobster. (we ate there, being unable to find a better restraunt and it was surprisingly good).

Those were the good points....

Now the bad bits.

Although I agree with previous reviews in that this hotel is spotless and well maintained, the walls are paper thin and the room doors all have closing springs from hell! We ate early, about 7pm and retired for the night with a bottle of wine and the usual mind numbing TV. (There is nothing else to do in Kelso) For 5 hours, all we could hear was the slamming of doors, other peoples TV's and much to ours amusement, the worlds loudest love makers in the room next door!! At one point I was going to call 911, because I feared for the poor girls life!

Although the free breakfast (muffins and coffee) looked good, we skipped it and went to Dennys accross the parking lot.

Never used the pool, although again it looked clean and well cared for through the glass in reception. (which has a strong smell of chlorine)

I know that the owners of this hotel can't do anything about the poor construction of the rooms and maybe we were just unlucky with the noise. OK for one night, but if you are looking for a long term hotel in this area, look elsewhere.

Cheers.

I was pleasantly surprised. The property and room were very clean and quiet. room was a little small. Bed was very comfortable. Big TV w/lots of stations. Wireless. Would have got 5-stars if it had an alarm clock and hairdryer. Well worth almost half the price of the Red Lion.
