I admit I stayed here on short notice. However, motel - six is MORE expensive and is nobody's first pick. Now I stay here EVERY time I'm in town for work AND on vacation. Large rooms, great view with Red Li_n type atmosphere. Easy commute to Olympia. It's family owned and it shows!

Stayed here 1 night passing through town. Has coffee maker, fridge, microwave and free internet. Also had nice lake view out of huge back window. It was nice to be able to keep the curtains open and enjoy this view without seeing people passing by. free breakfast as well and good coffee.

there is something about driving or flying all day and at least propping your feet up to look at the lake from your room. mind you for budget hotels this is a bit of a little bonus. the room was budget small, budget decorated etc, but the service was fine, acceptable clean, bfast in morning the usual. and somewhat funny...

We checked in late at 11pm and we're tired and a little sick. Go to the room, get ready for bed, decide to check the bed... Hair all over the bed, not a single sheet or pillow had been changed. The bathroom smells like sewage, the wifi gives you one bar... It's cheap but it should still be clean

Thank you for your time to review us. I am sorry to fail miserably for the cleanliness of the room. In no way, cheap means compromising quality for us. I would have been more than happy to make the situation right had you contacted us instantly. We will use this experience to learn and avoid situations like this in future.

Not a luxury hotel but clean and very inexpensive. I was pleasantly surprised. Beautiful view of the lake from the back deck. It looks a little shady when you first show up but it is safe and comfortable. Get a room on the top floor due to squeaky spots on the floor, would not want to be below. Beds were...

Sitting on a small lake with great view from the room. Didn't notice much noise though located near the freeway. Accepted dog for a $10 fee. It was late night when I checked in but the young guy behind the desk was jovial and courteous. Small breakfast till 10 was ideal for people like me who wake up late. Would...

It was okay kind of thing. We have stayed there before, but this time it was not what we're expecting. They didn't clean the room, just left clean towels. No coffee and didn't clean that either. Was just disappointed with the lack of cleaning.

Don't complain about there employess or service. They will just tell you to leave. I have never seen an establishment. Thay is so rude to paying customers.

Thank you for your time for reviewing us online. We try to be as professional as we can but we do reserve the right to refuse service for troublesome clients. We do take complaints or complements in our stride to better our services but intimidating our employees is not tolerated. While we do not pay for the room cost, we...

Thank you for taking your time to review us online. While our goal is to satisfy our guests to the utmost, we definitely failed here. Our cleaning products are environment safe but I agree it has a smell to it. It might have been one of those instances where it needed to be used little more than average but that...
