We flew into Seattle and immediately began a road trip around Olympic National Park. We booked the Forks Motel in advance knowing that we could cover some distance and still have plenty of time to explore on our way there. I don't typically stay in motels, but there weren't many options in this area. The room was adequate and was clean even though it was dated. We were tired when we arrived as we had put in a full day of travel and were still on East Coast time. The check-in staff was helpful and were able to provide suggestions for dinner. We left early the next morning to continue our trip, so very little time was actually spent at the motel. It felt a little overpriced for what we were getting, but I think we made a good decisions based on what is available in the area.

The hotel was pretty good. The town is small so you can walk everywhere. The wifi varied on parts of the room. I would keep losing it, and it would go from one bar to two bar. The pool was outside and was pretty warm. The rooms were pretty spacious. But overall the room was good.

We would agree with other reviewer " Comfortable stay after 3 days of hiking", who said it perfectly. We were in the Forks area for three days hiking, kayaking, enjoying the scenery. We spent little time in the room, only wanting a comfortable, clean place to lay our heads at night. While not fancy and a bit dated, the Forks Motel was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly.

After hiking the Third beach to Oil city trail on the coast we were ready for a rest. During the drive home we decided to stay here and it was a good choice. The room was clean, albeit the furnishings a bit outdated but to me that's no big deal considering the cost per night.

Bedding was ample, bathroom clean. Internet was sketchy at times so I used my Chromebooks 3g instead.

Fell in love with a very small Mexican restaurant (Taqueria Santanna) which serves excellent meals and reasonably priced as well. The Menudo, Cibo, Tacos etc. are some of my favs. Sully's drive in was another good choice while we were there.

Great place to stay.

this place is only so so , there were a few things that i wasnt happy with considering they charged $77.00 a night , first thing was the 1/2 inch gap at the bottom of the door , it made me glad it was spring - i wouldnt want room that in the winter,,, another issue was the chairs , they were so stained that i had to put the bath mat on it before i could sit on it , and i work on outdoor sites everyday - these chairs looked to dirty to sit on in my work clothes , the other issues were the rusted dirty blinds in the bathroom window and the wireless - that you cant connect to - neither of my laptops or my phone could connect to the wifi at this place , one the plus side - the water pressure in the shower is great , but then that could be the same at the other motels in town,
i kinda wish i would have chosen one of the other motels in town 0- i know i will next time im in forks

Room Tip: try one of the other motels in forks

Stayed at this motel this weekend, room was clean, staff was friendly. If you need some place with WIFI, pass on this one. They advertise free WIFI but the signal from the routed is so weak you get dropped every few minutes and its slow when you can stay on.

Recently spent one night in this motel. We had a room with two comfortable beds. The room was clean, smelled nice, and a heater that maintained a cozy temperature. The front desk clerk was friendly. The rate was reasonable. The location is in the middle of town so just minutes from a number of restaurants. The motel had a small "commissary" in the lobby area for snacks. This is an older property but it is well maintained. I look forward to visiting Forks and the Forks Motel again
