But the room lacked all the necessities we need for a good nights sleep..Really enjoyed the staff and thank-you for having us, but would not stay again.. and we paid A LOT for the room.. hence the title...

Sadly this Motel is not a motel for family. More of a party motel. Let me start off with the good things about this hotel. Front desk was really nice and helpful with some concerns I had. The outside of the building is well lite and it's nice to know that the police station is right around the corner. Now... More

All Washington Hotels & Motels? But, here Maids, or Workers who stay here & those stay with their children are spying in your room whether through holes in doors & windows they are constantly watching & guests who stay up & eat, drink, or watching movies they are there watching with and or without parents supervision..

I echo the low ratings of the other reviewers. I will NEVER stay here again. The room was filthy- yellow stains of the "clean" towels, towels were threadbare and small, threadbare sheets with holes, sticky crud all over the air conditioner, broken fixtures, heavily stained chair, odd odor, and disgusting floors. We wouldn't even walk on the carpet. Instead we... More

you have to check the room within 10 minutes of arrival otherwise there's no refund. the reason for this is you get your stuff in your 10 minutes is up by the time you check over the room and you realize that roaches would not live there. I pulled on the blanket on 1 of the beds and there was... More

First of all (I looked at the website after out stay) their website, www.sunshinemotelfife.com is a complete farce. They advertise as some fancy, clean, "tropical" motel next to the ocean. HA, not even close. Aside from finding a tightly rolled up piece of paper with white powdery substance around it on the floor, the people who were around us, were... More

This place does not deserve 2 stars, much less 3. There was no deadbolt, or chain lock on my room, I had to push furniture in front of the door to feel comfortable. Some of the people standing outside of their rooms were pretty creepy. The carpet and tub were stained, the room reeked of bad air freshener. At least... More

I reserved a room at the Sunshine Motel in Fife,WA based on a 3-star rating from ------- It should have been a 1/2 star. There were no hangers, threadbare sheets, black hairs all over the very thin blanket, only 1 of the 6 vanity lights worked, hot water was luke warm, and the door moulding holding the safety latch wasn't...
