Someone described the hitting the "travelers wall" midway through Washington State, and that is precisely why I chose the Waterville. Traveling alone I wasn't comfortable pressing on to the coast, and wanted a safe, clean, interesting place to spend the night. I was rewarded with a spotless room, interesting hosts, excellent morning coffee and fresh bakery goodies, and was treated well by proprietors Dave and Amy.
They have labored long and hard to make this place accessible, friendly, and restored in a way that is not cutesy, but clever. And...get this... it is happily free from ghosts! Trust me on this.
