Referred to Forks Motel by my parents because of their good experience. Staff, Doris and Dan, helped us to feel at home. Down to earth and friendly. Room was clean, comfortable bed, bathroom amenities available, microwave and coffee maker and all in good repair. Everything seems to be quite a drive in the area, but it was worth stopping in here. Felt like heaven to wake up in a comfortable room, take a shower, and relax before more hiking.

Room Tip: Heard that older building isn't to the same quality (just to be aware).

Me and my friend just crashed into this Motel by accident and it was the best thing we could ever do in Forks!
The host is very friendly, generous, communicative and helps out in every way. We got a very good price for a really clean and cosy room with WLAN access, flatscreen, bathtub and queensize beds. The location is in the very centre of Folks and the supermarket is just around the corner. Even though the area is very quiet and park area is right in front of the room.
We just loved to stay here and it made our trip a brilliant start! Thanlks a million to the Folks Motel!

It is not easy to find a decent place (for my taste) in this region. Pretty much remote and rural.
The Forks Motel looked decent to me. So, I checked the rooms and was surprised. The rooms are roomy, clean and comfortable. The bed is good. The heating (yes, it was cold already) was good and not noisy. Fridge and microwave. The bathroom is a little bit small but managable. Two sinks are outside of the bathroom. The window to the back didn't have a curtain or blind, so, some light came through during the night, which may be bothersome to some people.
They have one floor and two floor buildings. Because one has to deal with a wodden structure, I would suggest to either use the units in the one floor building or on the second floor in the two story building.
Check-in and check-out was very friendly. No breakfast provided. The price very economical.

we stayed there on a sister's get away. The room was very clean and amazingly quiet even though we were pretty close to the highway. I would advise this motel to anyone traveling.
We asked for extra pillows and that was no bother at all.

Clearly an older establishment, but still well kept. Located right in the middle of town. Forks is cashing in on the Twilight phenomenon (hence the above average price) although we were in town to visit the Hoh Rain Forest and Olympic National Park beaches for 2 days. Forks Coffee Shop next door is convenient for a filling breakfast.

Room Tip: All rooms ground floor, however they are raised a couple of steps. Helpful in mitigating vehicle no...

In town there are not many places to stay. This was a high priced, +$90, for a bare bones, old motel room with no free breakfast or newspaper. The coffee shop next door has great blackberry cobbler!

The Forks Motel is decent enough but definitely no bargain. Our room did not have airconditioning and we were experiencing unusally warm weather so that didn't help. The place is horribly outdated, but the room was large and relatively clean. The sheets and blanket must be the same they've been using for the last 50 years--they were so threadbare. I don't know if there is a better deal in town (not many options here) but this place was very over priced for what you get. With Port Angeles just an hour away, you might be better off staying there.
