A very nice large room with refrigerator, microwave, and a sink outside the bathroom. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The breakfast was extensive with 4 kinds of cereal, juice, hard eggs, waffles, apples, apple sauce, and bagels and creme cheese. There is an elevator for second and third floor rooms. An excellent place and highly recommended.

We stayed at the Peppermill for 6 nights during a training conference. We had planned to stay at a downtown hotel but then learned about the noise of the trains that go by at all hours near the downtown area. We were very happy we changed our reservations. The Peppermill exceeded our expectations. The king sized bed was very comfortable,... More

We spent the night at the Peppermill. It was very reasonably priced. While the bathroom was on the small side the room was neat and clean Staff was helpful when we needed to find a drugstore in town. The complimentary breakfast offered a number of options and was just what we were looking for. It was easy to find as... More

Didn't have any reservation before our long trip in western coastline. Found this on Hotels.com. Seemed to be a good choice. Clean and comfortable, big room with fridge and microwave. Also found out close to big shopping mall with a lot of nice brands. Breakfast was ok for being in the states, we swedes are a bit choosy about selection

We stayed with our group for a night going to SEATAC airport. Nothing special or bad about the place. It was roomy, clean and comfortable with friendly check in/out service...all we basically hoped for. Continental breakfast was basic, but adequate. The hotel provided a basket of apples at front desk, and hot water with mix of teas 24/7 which was... More

Very happy with this hotel. Very friendly night staff at the front desk on arrival and on check out the next morning. Very clean room, comfortable bed and pillows. There is a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Newspapers and apples at the front desk. The noon check out was much appreciated since I didn't arrive until after... More

We arrived about 9:30-10pm. Lady was friendly and nice. We didn't need a lot of directions to any place. Staff was friendly. Prices affordable for 2 nights. Paid through a 3rd party. No hitches or cliches in the reservation or upon check out. WiFi is slow but works.

They even let me log into my email to print out some work related items that were emailed to me while I was traveling. From their computer in the office. Room was nice. Clean,normal amenities.

No complaints, room large, clean TV channel choice was good. The WiFi was reliable and offered a speedy connection. Breakfast free and standard affair, although no decaf coffee. I did find the mattress to be overly soft.
