My friend and I had a great experience at Ameritel. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The desk was always staffed so there was always someone to help. They also have a mini-store that is open 24 hours and you can purchase items to charge to your room.
There is a large indoor pool and hot tub that is open 24 hours. We thought the pool seemed a little too cold for a dip but we enjoyed the hot tub both nights. There are plenty of clean pool towels available in the pool area.
There is plenty of parking. We pretty much parked our car and didn’t move it until we left. We were able to walk to the Old Mill area easily from the hotel. Old Mill has shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre, plus recreation equipment available for renting. We also attended an event at the Les Schwab Amphitheatre which was just across the river from the Old Mill. You could probably even walk to downtown, but it’s also just a short drive.
This hotel also offers a full, hot breakfast with eggs, meat, waffles, as well as fruit, yogurt and cereals. Every night from 5-7 pm they have fresh, hot cookies. They also always have coffee/tea available.
Our room was large. It included a refrigerator , coffee pot and a microwave (which we didn’t use). Having an additional vanity outside the bathroom would be nice, but not necessary. We never had the room cleaned, so we did have to stop by the front desk to pick up a roll of toilet paper.
We didn’t have a “river view” room or a balcony, so our room was $10-20. cheaper. I think if I stayed here again I’d probably request a room on that side just to see how it is but we were hardly in the room enough to need the view.
The A/C in the room was great and necessary for a hot August weekend.
You could easily stay here for a weekend with your family and find plenty to do without ever having to start your car. And if you like to walk, bike or run, there are plenty of nearby trails. I’m sure I will be back here to stay.
