“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Every time our family comes into town we stay at the Sumner motor inn. The room rates are very reasonable and we appreciate the location, which is within walking distance of regular, and fast food and restaurants. Also within a few blocks of a major shopping center. The Sumner motor inn is literally minutes from the freeway access. We've always been met by the friendly staff and never had any problems with our reservations. The rooms have microwaves and refrigerators. All in all smi is a great value.

Room Tip: Bring own shampoo when staying the night or several nights.

We were so thrilled to discover this place! We found out on arrival that the place we were interested in booking was full up, so last minute we looked at a couple motels in Puyallup where we were attending a wedding. We were put off by the smells and the noise of the freeway just down the block. We ran out of time to find anything - discouraged, we headed to Sumner for the rehearsal dinner and discovered this motel. The paint job outside was already a hopeful sign. What a delight to find very reasonably priced accomodation that was clean, had no lingering smells, no loud traffic nearby, and friendly staff. With 3 fussy people (myself included) in our party of 5 it was a relief to find affordable accomodation that we could all agree on. It's obvious that the management takes special care in maintaining this place. The paint job is recent, the beds are comfortable, and I didn't feel like I needed to wear slippers whenever I walked on the floor. There isn't a lot of choice in lodging in the Puyallup area if you don't want to drive all the way to the 1-5, so it was really great to discover this little treasure close by.

Me and my girlfriend and our kids stayed here for three days and we had a great time. The room was very clean and they had just put new furniture in. The staff was friendly and very helpful! We loved how close everything was. We were within walking distance to restaurants and the grocery store. This place is great, affordable and convenient! We will definitely stay again!

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for a week while we were transitioning between moves. We called and were told it would be $250 for the week - asked them to hold the room for us and were told it was not a problem. When we showed up that night to check in (just 2 hours later, by the way), it ended up being $340, plus taxes and a $20 deposit - because, according to the odd lady at the counter we never called to make a reservation. (Honestly seemed like she was on something..maybe that explains it?) Was a terrible experience to say the least - as if it weren't bad enough having to pay an extra $120 or so, the room was gross, smoky and musty (a non smoking room shouldn't smell THAT heavily of smoke?) There is a large group of workmen that stayed above us as well, stomping and pounding all day and all night in there rooms while we have an infant trying to get some sleep. They are regulars though, so the staff said there wasn't anything they could do. Before paying we were told repeatedly that the building had great wi-fi, they just forgot to mention about 60% of the rooms are too far away to get the signal at all. Not the biggest deal, but on top of everything else - I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemies.

STAY AWAY unless you like being ripped off.

Only positive thing I have to say is the location isn't too bad, walking distance to Sumner's center, but not at all worth the hassle this place comes with.

sumnerinn, General Manager at Sumner Motor Inn, responded to this review, May 4, 2013
I would like to address some of the issues mentioned about the property. The property did not have any single queens or kings available in the NON SMOKING on that specific date of arrival. When potential guests call and ask for quotes, we always ask what type of room they are looking for and tell the person IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE, the type of room and price. Other complaints about the property was noise, smokey room and WIFI not working on personal computer. Non of my staff or myself received a call from guest or guest come into the office about their concerns, otherwise we would of fixed the concerns right away to make the guests stay more comfortable. We pride ourselves in friendly and excellent customer service, taking care of our guests and their requests. We would of been more than happy to fix any and all concerns. Thank you

In my opinion, definitely the best place to stay, in this area! I have stayed here for a week or two every year or so for 10 - 15 years now, and they just get better. What they provide is an unpretentious, problem-free, clean, comfortable and economical stay while you enjoy this particularly nice part of Washington State (Sumner).

We grew up bethe Sumner/Puyallup area and have since moved away. Thus we return to visit relatives and friends several times every year, as often as possible,. Weed to stay with relatives and still so sometimes,.but our schedual is usually such that we enjoy being able to nap, or go somewhere very late at night etc. We started staying at Sumner Motor Inn around 8 ago and appriciate the clean rooms and the refridgerators and microwaves,etc. The price is always right and it is very conviently located, near freeway access. The staff has always been friendly and helpful, making for alway a good stay!
