This is a very clean, newly furnished and comfortable place to stay in the Olympia area. The staff are friendly, and it has an especially extensive breakfast offering. Easy parking and easy access to I5 and local thoroughfares, yet the location is quiet.

Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Easy on and off the highway. Quiet. My husband appreciated the cookies. Front desk clerk was helpful in recommending a Thai restaurant in the area. Breakfast area was nice and well stocked.

Our room was clean and quiet. The hotel staff members were all friendly and helpful. The full breakfast was included and delicious. If you need Wi-Fi, this is your places. We have stayed in many dozens of different hotels over the past decades. This place had the fastest internet. I clocked the speed at about 50 MBPS download.

We were welcomed into the hotel by a friendly face, offered cookies and milk and breakfast the following day was one of the best complimentary breakfasts we have had in our travels. The fresh fruit selection included strawberries, blueberries and blackberries which were wonderful.\ Would stay here again if needed.
