This a pretty good hotel for the price. I appreciated the free breakfast, which was fresh, healthy and filling. The location is good being near lots of shopping and food, not to mention I5. There is a park going in right next door which will be super nice if its not raining. There is a $2 movie theatre close by... More

The overall stay was OK: fast check-in, real scrambled eggs at the breakfast buffet, tidy property, and close to many mostly pan-Asian restaurants. But with no blackout curtains (just sheers) and bright halogen shining through from the parking lot, I felt like I was sleeping in the parking lot.

Good, clean rooms - a helpful staff, and a better than average breakfast. The hotel also has a small bar with typical bar fare and good service (though it was sparsely attended on a recent Saturday night visit when I was there watching a football game). A pleasant lobby, overall clean environment, and close proximity to shopping makes this a... More

A little pricey compared to what we would like. Very clean. Very new. Very nice breakfast. Can't say anything bad, just didn't think the pricing fit Federal Way WA but perhaps we are a bit cheap. Want a safe, clean stay? This is the place.

I stay here a couple of times a year. It is easy to get to/from Seatac by bus (transit center is two blocks away) if you need that. There are restaurants and lots of stores within walking distance. Lots of food options in Federal Way. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Coffee, fridge, microwave in the room, also... More

This hotel is conveniently located to I-5, restaurants, and theaters. While the lobby looked recently renovated the third floor was obviously in need of remodeling although it was very clean. The bed was comfortable and I appreciated the varied choices of pillows. The continental breakfast was simple but fresh and abundant.

Wasn't a great start as my room wasn't ready so I couldn't check in until 5pm. That aprt, it was a pretty good stay. Nothing special, but clean, comfortable and a big, well furnished, room. Breakfast was usual buffet fare. Decent location for shopping, interstate and airport. Don't expect a long lie, however, as housekeeping were knocking on doors before... More

Stayed for just one night last night but very impressed. Remarkably clean in all areas including the public areas. Well appointed room with a huge amount of space. Nice assortment of amenities in the room and my daughter was impressed with the jar of cotton balls. And something that I really appreciate but hardly ever find in a hotel room... More

This was the WORST experience I have ever had at a hotel. We did a park and fly package at this hotel for the second year in a row. When we returned from the airport, our vehicle was gone. The police came and requested the front desk staff provide security tapes to help determine the date/time, etc of the theft.... More

I don't often rate a hotel 5/5 but this is one of the few. Clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious. Plenty of fluffy towels, huge jacuzzi in the room, not in the bathroom but there is also a tub/shower as well. Large 8' vanity. Microwave and good size mini fridge. Good tv with lots of channels. Good wifi. Keurig for morning coffee.... More
