The management and staff were very friendly here, for the hotel and the restaurant. The rooms are VERY basic and that is what we expected so there was no surprise. The beds and room were both clean and comfortable. The shower had a problem and it took a long time to get the mix right between the very hot and... More

Stopped in to visit the new restaurnt at the motel and found it to be very good. The dining area was very clean, the employee's very friendly, and the food was properly prepared and in large quantity. Whenever in the area, I'll definitely stop in here rather than at some of the better know restaurants where the prices are much... More

Looks very tired and run down on the outside, inside a large pleasant room with 2 chairs, a table and fold out bed/couch. Microwave and coffeemaker but no refrigerator or TV. Internet supposedly available by the office, this is a small place, I wasn't far and I could only occasionally even see it let alone log on. Very recent paint... More

This is a very simple but clean inn. No TV or telephone. Our room was small but adequate. Very nice owner. It is reasonable priced and suited our needs. We were told by the desk clerk that her aunt had sold the inn and the people had trashed it and did not make payments to the owner. We were glad... More

We planned our trip late and this was one of the last rooms in Ashford available. We had two queen beds. The room was very clean, which was appreciated. It had the bare necessities and nothing more; if you're looking for fancy things like tissue to blow your nose, shampoo that isn't liquid softsoap, a television, phone (cell phones didn't... More

Very friendly and helpful owner. She is a very cheerful lady, even offer me a small discount. She told me I am probably the first Singaporean that stay in her motel. Clean and well maintained on the inside. Only problem is no in-room wifi, I have to go to the office to use the wifi though. Enjoyed my stay here.... More

"Rustic" is the best term for this place, in Ashford, WA, which is also fairly rustic. Heck, the whole area is, since a major reason for Ashford's existence is the mountaineering folks who scale nearby Mt. Rainier. Most of those folks don't want much more than a clean no-frills place to crash before and after their mountain expeditions; this inn... More
