Super friendly, efficient, helpful front desk staff. Super clean rooms, free WiFi, and very comfortable beds. Close to freeway without freeway noise. Well made basic hot breakfast (but in a dark, grim, cheerless back room). Bad soundproofing in rooms..next door neighbors conversations were amplified, every slam of their fridge, drawers, or door made walls shake, and when they walked around...

We appreciate your input and will brainstorm with maintenance better ways to sound proof the rooms. For future reference, our staff is more than happy to accommodate requests for an extra quiet room when available.

Best Western Tumwater Inn is a pleasure to stay at. Staff treat me as family. They are very welcoming. With several restaurants within easy walking distance, everyone can find something to eat. In addition to a hot breakfast, there is also a 5pm social hour with hot food and cool drinks. And there are fresh cookies at 6pm every night.

We have stayed at this hotel when we are visiting in California. The service is great and the rooms are always very clean. They provide a free breakfast which works very well for us as we can help ourselves and be on the road early in the morning.

I love staying at this hotel when I'm in Tumwater for my quarterly meetings. It is always quiet and clean. In the morning, when I step out of my room I can smell breakfast cooking and it's always delicious. Even more important, the staff are welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home. They're the...

Looking for somewhere to stay while we made our way down the coast. This hotel was perfect. The staff were very friendly and made sure we were taken care of. Check in was smooth and fast.

The building is not a 5-star hotel like a Four Seasons Hotel or Inter-Continental Hotel but its staff & guest services are 5 star. Services from check-in to check-out, comfortable room where everything works, full hot breakfast every morning, manager's reception 3 work week nights, housekeeping & maintenance person will make for 5 star hotel.

Clean room, friendly staff, plenty of parking. A good included breakfast is valuable to me and Best Western doesn't disappoint. Eggs, ham, waffles, cereal, variety of bread products, several juices, coffee, a nice selection of fresh fruit-they have what you're looking for. Place is quiet. A great Mexican restaurant next door (see review of Plaza Jalisco).

We stayed for four nights and were treated very, very well. From the front desk to the housing service, everything was done with a smile. Valerie Walters treated guests to a nice buffet on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday evening. A breakfast with your room rate is also very nice. Senior & Military discounts are honored.

On our way driving down the coast. Nice clean hotel, rooms, amenities and the staff was great. We enjoyed our night here. I like the city it seemed well planned. Went and saw the fall by the old Olympia Brewing Co. It was fine. The park next to the falls had a fish hatchery, it's always fun to watch wild...

Surprisingly, the hotel exceeded my expectations. The place looked very new. The room and bed were clean and bed was comfortable. The pillows were not perfect though they didn't ruin the overall impression of the place. The quality of breakfest was above the hotel class, surprisigly including items such as mini tomatoes and kiwis, which was a very nice surprise....
