“A good alternative to Tacoma”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

It's about 8-12 miles from Tacoma, but this place is worth the drive. Very clean, good price and breakfast included. Also, I love the peace and quiet.

I loved this place!! They serve cookies at 6 pm, they have a full breakfast in the morning (make your own waffles, etc.), they have a hot tub (had been driving ALL DAY), it's clean, the staf was awesome, I got a great price on my room, and the location was nice being downtown but not on the main drag. I will stay there again for sure if I go back to Auburn. We went to the Santana show and a number of people at the hotel that night were also going so that was fun. It's nowhere close to the Ampitheatre, but nothing is! haha. I loved this place and was so pleasantly surprised when we got there. :)

Everyone was very friendly here. And the room was very clean and comfortable and had a small refrigerator and microwave, which was very helpful. The location of the hotel made it very easy to get to the Seattle area or south to the Mt Rainier area.

The breakfast was fresh every morning and included hot items like fresh waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and even biscuits and gravy, along with the cold cereals, yogurt, breads, and muffins. The whole wheat bread was the best I've had in a long time. There was even ice water and coffee in the lobby at all times, and they had cookies in the afternoons.

The thing I liked best was that the hotel felt very comfortable. The thing I liked the least was the faucet in the bathroom sink was hard to turn on. But I mentioned that to the manager, who thanked me for my helpful comment.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want no smoking, ask for a room on the first floor. The entire first floor is totally nonsmo...

The price we paid for a room with two queen beds was very reasonable which also included breakfast. Although our room was right across from the elevator and behind a vending machine, we didn't hear any noise from the neighbours nor the vending machine and elevator. In our family vacation trip, we stayed in Red Lion, Olympia and Super8, Woodburn before this hotel, and we could say without a doubt this hotel was the best by quite a margin. The best part was their complementary breakfast which could be called breakfast deluxe compared to Supper8's. There were three kinds of juices, coffee and hot chocolate (my kids' favorite), an assortment of breads and English muffin, cereals, and soup with biscuit. We even made our own waffle (with two kinds of syrups) and sausage-and-egg muffins (there was a limit of 2 per person). The breakfast room was super clean and adorably decorated with flowers. If you happen to visit Auburn, you owe it to yourself and your wallet to give this hotel a try.

Jsocan!

I love that you were able to experience a few other hotels prior to ours... that speaks volumes to travelers who don't want to hassle with anything less than the best.

Savvy consumers know value when they see it. When choosing a hotel, there is more to consider than just rate. Does the hotel offer free Wi-Fi? Does it include a scrumptious, hot, deluxe breakfast?

Ours certainly does- guaranteed.
Many Happy Returns!

No reservations were made for one night of our Washington vacation. We stumbled upon this gem. It's not new but so clean and the staff made us feel like family. The breakfast was good and everything was great here. Bed was comfy. You won't regret staying here.

I'd have to say that we are rather impressed with the service and attitude. We really enjoyed the stay. Just one thing, if your an employee, dont use the "guest laundry" for your own things or hotel items. This is why they call it the "guest laundry". WE LOVE THE HOSTESS IN THE BREAKFAST ROOM!!!!!!!! She is a Hoot.

This was a very nice clean hotel. The staff was friendly. 2nd and 3rd floor has some non smoking room. The first floor is completely non smoking. If you like good breakfast, it was the best.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from railroad.
