Room clean and everything looks updated hardwood floors. Good location in tumwater. Nice shower didn't have any problem with the temperature No shampoo and conditioner or hair dryer. Nice at check in, security is good. Stayed by myself But for 50 bucks well worth it.

As you can expect it was located in a strip mall area. That's ok when living in a motel though. However it seemed a bit gritty. Cars with broken windows and strange characters smoking on the doorsteps. In our room the beds were full of body hairs, but the super friendly staff and cleaning lady hooked us up with a... More

You can do way better for the money spent here on a night. Check other hotels/motels before making your decision to stay here. Mold in shower. Sheets did not look changed. Phone dead. Staff said no to extra pillows. It is a motel, but with other choices in the area, you can find better. $72 a night? Use your money... More

pay the extra $20 and stay somewhere else. Our sheets had 2 different hairs on them and a stain. One long and black and one short and gray. Humm, guess they decided the sheets looked clean enough. Thin towels, coffee in office only and no WiFi unless you pay. They should pay us to stay here. I felt grossed out... More

I made a reservation ahead of time, when I checked in they charged me more. They wouldn't budge on the price. The bed was so uncomfortable, after driving over 8 hours all I wanted was a comfy bed to rest in, the bed was hard as a rock. There was no blow dryer in the room, don't all places have... More

Stayed here overnight with my husband and daughter. Never again!! Yes it's pet friendly, but that's the only good point. Bed was like a plywood sheet, pillows were so thin, it was like sleeping on nothing, and we had one towel for the three of us. I slept in my clothes, because I wouldn't dare change. I just wanted to... More

Paid 60 bucks with taxes and fees for a clean room with good bedding and a decent tv. Can't be beat! Staff was helpful, other patrons were polite. Of course it's not a 4 star place, but for somewhere simple and affordable, this place can't be beat.
