A great place to stay with all the creature comforts of home. We love how close it is to downtown, easy to get to the Olympia Farmers Market and the coffee shops/restaurants. Will stay here again when we come back to Olympia!

This is a lovely place to stay when you're in the Olympia area. We did not want to stay in one more hotel during our visit to the South Sound and so booked in at Short Stay. It was great. Loved having a real kitchen and ROOM to relax in. And it's so close to downtown, too. A quie

I was not pleased here because the front page of their website says "available by day, week, or month" BUT they don't let you stay a day! We only wanted to stay one night and move on with our trip but when we went to book it, reservations says "We require a minimum 2 night stay.

In 8 years of business you are the first one to bring it to my attention. I didn't make you book two nights and surprised you didn't call me and say "hey Deb, You need to update your website as it may be a bit confusing to future guests instead of a review which may be really hurtful to a tiny business like mine." I will call my admin but I think it is the software interface between Trip Advisor and my older software that won't talk to each other. I am in my 60's and went to college on an electric type writer so computers are difficult for me at best. I will get someone on that early next week. I wonder if it is clear that I am a Vacation Rental and not a hotel? I will ask him.

We loved the central heat since it was rainy and cold during our visit. Main living area is large with two couches; beds are very comfortable; kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make meals. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown Olympia, with its charming coffee shops,

Wonderful Welcome!
Can you please tell me how long you have to stay? I need a place like this on and off for 5 days due to business back and forth from AZ and my son plays basketball for St. Martin.
I have the 10th-through the 20th in November available this month otherwise pretty booked. December is a bit more open. Can yougive me any specific dates? It changes every day as I get reservations and I only have a few units. Please feel free to book right on line at Short Stay Lodgings. Best Regards, Debra

"upstairs is slightly more sunny."
"Both the upstairs and downstairs units are fully equipped. Downstairs is good if you have mobility issues."
