We decided to give this place a try since it is so close to Centralia and the outlet mall. We were able to check into our room early and what a surprise. Very small room and a damp smell probably because is close to the lake. Very old place and the room was VERY small. Two people could not be...

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was very quiet considering it is right next to I5. Easy to get to the hotel and get back onto I5 heading either direction. Good breakfast and good staff. Nice clean rooms, good wifi, nice view of lake, chairs to sit outside on, able to park right outside our room and would...

I was on my way to visit family in Washington and luckily found this motel. It was clean and comfortable and well equipped with coffee pot, refrigerator and microwave oven. I had an upstairs room and it was very quiet and overlooked a pretty lake. There were a few fishermen and a lot of ducks in the lake. The furniture...

Very large rooms overlooking the lake. I travel on business to Centralia all summer and have stayed almost in every hotel in the area. This one is by far the best. The rooms are large and overlook a very nice lake and all the staff is very attentive, thoughtful and fun. The rooms are well equipped for a traveler with...

We had no problem...the hotel was fully booked. We didn't hear any of the other guests. It is great hotel for price. It is right off I-5 so you can hear a bit of traffic when you have the tv and A/C off. My husband and I enjoyed our weekend getaway. Front desk staff was really nice. We had the...

This is an older property that is need of a major makeover. Located right off of I-5 in Centralia, this is a decent place to get a nights rest, just don't expect to much. There is a small lake right behind the motel that would enhance your stay if the interstate highway wasn't right next to the lake, too. The...

Lakeview Inn: Bring Your Ear Plugs! This motel by the side of I-5 in Centralia, Washington is a handy stopping point between Portland and Seattle. At a cost of only $60, we were not expecting much, but the Lake View Inn surprised us in a positive way. We were greeted by a friendly and prompt desk manager and were given...

I was trying to book a room for my daughter for two nights, who is flying home on emergency leave because her grandfather just died and I couldn't get anybody to try and work with me. Cannot pay over the phone, so a special trip into town to make payment. More money when they heard that I might stay one...

Thank you for taking out time to review us online. I am sorry that we could not work with you to pay for the room over the phone. Due to the increase in fraud cases, it is our company policy to either have the credit card and the authorized user present or have it authorized via fax. There is no...

Front desk clerk was great. Clean, well-furnished room with a desk with a lower tray for a keyboard. (Nice touch, I thought). The fan on the heater was noisy, so we shut it off - it wasn't a cold day. The hotel was cheek by jowl with the freeway, so there was some traffic noise. With a few carefully positioned...
