This review is as laborious as the hotel was uneventful I wouldn't stay here, I wouldn't recommend that anyone else stay here. Motel 6 would suffice unless you like throwing your money away. don't bother with the restaurant. There isn't a host(ess) or a sign to tell you to seat yourself and you might wait 10 minutes, like I did,...

The restaurant is dingy and the service very poor. Not adequately staffed. On a weekend morning, there were twenty or more people in line when a little more staff would have solved the problem, very easilty

This used to be my go to hotel for any meeting I had in the area but I won't be staying there anymore. After a very long time of not having a front desk, the check in process is still a mess, time consuming, confusing, and unprofessional. Getting a free coffee does not make it OK. The room is OK...

I travel to Olympia every other week for my doctors appointments. I was very excited to see there was a hotel close to his office. When I when into the lobby it was not marked anywhere on where to check in and nobody was at this tiny desk. A very nice lady came up and finally helped me. She was...

A good hotel, the pictures make it look a little more modern than it is but the have definitely updated where it counts. Room was clean and nice. The bed was updated but couch was a bid older, still nice though. Got a free small drink at the espresso bar for staying which was nice. Had drinks at the bar...

Great Room and great scenery. Nice restaraunt as well with good food. Pool was closed due to weather and winter season. Wish you had an indoor pool or hot tub. Room was really clean and my wife loved the king bed. She said she slept wonderfully

We booked a room to stay the night during our daughter's college tour. The hotel has been remodeled since our last stay. The hardwood floors in the rooms are both good and bad, they give the room a cleaner look, but the noise level from the room above has increased due to no carpet to muffle the sounds of people...

If you like extremely soft beds that offer no support, this place is for you. I got 4 hours of interrupted sleep the first night. The second night I took towels and placed them under my butt to help gain some support. This help some but still led to inadequate sleep. The hotel staff dressed like they were the grounds...

Dear tatom, I am sorry that you found our beds too soft and uncomfortable, especially because they receive the most positive feedback. Hotel RL is an unconventional brand, which is why we do not have uniforms and let our team express themselves in what they choose to wear (with a few stipulations). Thank you for your business and for sharing...
