Terrible! Never going to come back here!

Posted 31-Jul-2015
I usually dont write reviews even when I am not satisfied but this one was just so bad that makes me write a review. Pro: 1. Waffle for breakfast n thats it!!! Cons: 1.Yeah, there s desk but no desk lamp! Asked the front desk but the staff just kept saying they were full house an they don't carry extra lamp. What kind of hotel does alsonot carry extra lamp? 2. It was noisy because its right by the highway, close enough for a drunk driver to smash into the suite if the driver loses control of the car n fall go off the highway. I got to bed around 12:30 but got woken up by the noise around 2:40 n couldnt go back to sleep 3. Dirty carpet. 4. One ice machine for the entire hotel. If you are looking for a confortable stay go somewhere else.

Nice hotel for an extended stay

Posted 22-Jul-2015
Pros: The friendly staff at the front desk who printed out directions to our sightseeing destinations.
Cons: Housekeeping was very inefficient. One day they missed our room completely, other days they came late when we had already returned for the day.
The hotel is a little big bare bones, but adequately. The staff at the front desk is very helpful. House-keeping leaves something to be desired but for our rate was acceptable. Nice hot breakfast every morning, sometimes in a crowded area., though.

Mood hotel with view of Mt Rainier

Posted 22-Jul-2015
Friendliest front desk staff I've ever had. They had great recommendations of what to do throughout the state and they were very helpful with all the questions I had.

A downgrade from other Howard Johnson I've stayed

Posted 15-Jul-2015
Pros: The staff was very friendly
Cons: A very good cleaning and some serious maintenance!
Location: The location isn't to bad and it's close to the freeway, several good restaurants, and shopping. Wapato Park is close and it's very beautiful.
The hotel staff was very friendly and my stay went without any wrinkles however, the suite hadn't been vacuumed in I don't know how long and this is only the second time I have ever in a hotel where the carpet was actually sticky! Definitely in need of a shampoo! The towels were skimpy, for 6 people we were never given more than 4 towels and one of the wash clothes had obviously been used to scrub floors or something because it was threadbare and had very large worn holes in it. There were a few holes in the walls in places, mold in the corners and just really gave the impression of a lot of neglect and no one really cares. It was sad. The pool was dirty and the breakfast was minimal. Don't stay here if either of these is a feature you are basing your decision on.

Might send my enemies

Posted 13-Jul-2015
Pros: The staff was awesome and polite.
Cons: Clean the rooms and do regular maintenance when it is needed.
To start out, the hotel staff was amazing, and IF I were to even think about considering to stay here again, it would be because of the staff. The hotel itself is in reasonable state, but the room was quite awful. It was smelly and uncomfortable. The entire room was in need of repairs, from missing wall jack covers, to stains and peeling wallpaper. We couldn't even stand to sit on the bed or furniture, and even if we had, the beds were horribly uncomfortable. We left and went elsewhere. It was worth the lost money we paid for this room to get a comfortable sleep at another hotel.

Stayed in worse places

Posted 05-Jul-2015
Office chair was stained terribly, electrical socket between the bed and bathroom wall when used killed all the power in the room, pool and hottub hadn't been cleaned in a while, earwigs were everywhere our last morning.
