“Clean and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Stayed here July 2011. Room with two beds had a balcony facing Mt. Ranier. Although there's a power line running through the view, on a clear day, it is still breathtaking. The room was fresh and clean, even to my standards. Check in was quick and the airport shuttle runs 24 hours a day. There's several fast food and sit-down dining options within walking distance, and I felt safe walking by myself even after 11pm. The WiFi is not exactly "free" as they try to tell you...I ended up paying $6.95 for "full access". It's a 100% non-smoking hotel that indicates that make accomodation for smokers outside. However, I didn't see any sign of ashtrays outdoors...although I DID see a LOT of cigarette butts laying around. The patio terrace was not tidied up for morning coffee. Chairs had not been straightened and tables had not been wiped down, but there's an outdoor fountain there which is a nice feature. Breakfast was the standard Courtyard offerings with friendly and quick service. Overall it's a clean hotel that is convenient to the airport. The balconies are a nice touch for smokers, but not all rooms have them. They could provide a couple of ashtrays outdoors for those of us who would prefer not to toss cigarette butts on the ground (I found a place to throw mine away, but not everybody will go through the effort).

Room Tip: Request room with balcony on Mt. Ranier side.

This is our second stay and we really had a great time here. Good location. Spacious rooms. Great staff. We used to stay at Embassy suites next door but we had so much problems with them (parking fee, they charge fee for wi-fi, lousy breakfast, etc).

By the way the breakfast at Courtyard is not free. That's the only disadvantage here but otherwise it's a decent hotel for your money.

Will stay here again.

My family and I stay at this hotel fairly regularly during the Mariners season so this last weekend would seemed no different initially. We heard the friendly, "Welcome Back!' But didn't get that impression when dealing with hotel staff. We were placed on a floor with many famillies that didn't know hotel etiquette. After a long LOUD night (with little sleep) kids running up and down the halls and screaming babies. We asked the front desk if we could move to another floor. We were told rather RUDELY, they were full. We asked again later in the day as the running/screaming children continued. Again, we were told they were full. The front desk stated that they would talk to the families on the floor but our 2nd night was no different than the first. I called the front desk while we were away and asked if they had rooms available for the night and they said they did. We opted for a quieter hotel and actaully got sleep! How hard would it really had been to change rooms for us to keep loyal customers? Was it really necessary to LIE? And on top of that, we are not sure if they had cleaned the room from the previous occupants! WE ARE TAKING OUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE - THE EMBASSEY SUITES NEXT DOOR IS A NICE QUIET PLACE TO STAY!

It is always disappointing to hear that we failed to deliver the high level of customer service which is our standard and which you have experienced during your past visits to our location. As a frequent guest I’m certain you realize that this was a unique situation and not typical of your previous stays at our property. Our hotel does cater to all types of clientele and we do tend to have more families with their children stay with us over long holiday weekends. We do have procedures in place to address any noise issues which may occur, and if the outcome you received from speaking with the front desk was unsatisfactory we do wish you had brought this matter to the immediate attention of our management team. It is difficult to know why you were informed we would be unable to move you to a different room, as we do routinely handle those sorts of requests. It does become more difficult to find an alternative room which still meets all of your needs on evenings when our occupancy is high. We do thank you for giving us an opportunity to explore how we may better serve our guests by alerting us to the issues you encountered and hope that you will give us another chance, as I’m certain we have met your expectations during your frequent stays in the past.

Not a new hotel but clean nevertheless. Had fridge and a microwave in room. I am not bothered by the (Amtrak and Freight) trains that pass right at the back of the hotel but others might find this a problem.

Easy to get on and off the freeway. Major mall is about a 5 minute drive away. Other then a gas station, wendy's and 7-11 not much other options around. Got the two bed standard room There was an extra lounge sofa and desk. Very spacious. Sink is outside of the bathroom. Coffee is single serve enough for 2 cups. There is also not enough condiments (there was only one sugar and one cream.) Other then that bed is super comfy and pillow are super soft which I love. Internet is free, parking is sparse until you get to the back of the hotel. Pool closes at 11pm and gym is 24 hrs. Stayed for 4 days great experience.

Very comfortable. The electrical outlets were on the lamps where I could reach them, on the lamps in easy reach. I use a CPAP, so this would a different experience not having to move a bed away from a wall, or using a huge extension cord to reach another outlet. The rug was padded, very comfortable walking around without shoes. Bed is great. An inside pool that looked very clean. The internet was very fast...used an ethernet connection, so it was secure. I don't like using wireless in a hotel unsecured. The only thing I can think of that is that there was no small frig or microwave, and the parking lot could be lit up a little more, it's pretty dark in places. I hope I get this hotel again when i book through Priceline!
