This hotel is average and rooms are average. It was neat and clean. Bathroom was clean, refrigerator and coffee in rooms. The breakfast had lots of fresh fruit and hot food as well. So it's a clean place to stay. Right at 💯 for the night.

First time here, good price, easy to find, great service even late at night, and above all good, clean rooms. Perfect! Plenty of choices of good quality at breakfast too! From what I understand they are doing something a bit different for breakfast and trying something different every day. We were only there for 1 night, so not sure, but...

This is our "go to place" in Olympia. We have stayed here many times before and will stay here again. It is a just plain great place to stay and the breakfast is fabulous. They even have an electrical outlet in the bathroom for a night light. The bed is comfortable and the pillows are not wimpy.

My husband and I were returning from our annual trip down south and usually stay in Olympia, but this time chose the Tumwater BW because the nightly rate was $50 less than our preferred hotel in Olympia. We were a bit worried that we might not like it, but that was soon put to rest. Everything was great - it...

This is a great little gem tucked in just south of Olympia and right off I-5. Perfect for someone headed south to avoid the Sea-Tac morning rush. Amazing job with the complimentary breakfast. Super friendly and efficient staff. Exterior could use a little updating but inside is fantastic and kept like new. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

I usually stay at Best Western's if possible. They are affordable and consistently good. This one was unbelievable! The room was very classy and clean. I love the shower gel and shampoo dispensers right in the shower. Everything in the room was upscale, much like you would find in a more expensive room.. They have an evening reception with appetizers...

This quiet little hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff are kind and helpful. The rooms are well-appointed, washrooms are clean. The desk clerk offered good suggestions for casual dinner nearby and assisted with laundry. Definitely recommend.

I needed to be in the Tumwater, WA area for business purposes and was under a lot of stress. The nice room, the nice staff, and all the nice amenities made my stay far nicer than I expected. I would highly recommend this motel to other travelers.
