The Ground Inn is like an oasis in the middle of downtown Olympia. The house is super clean and cozy, and I slept like a baby. it reminded me of a cool hostel for grown ups. The breakfast was made to order--even gluten free waffles! Very friendly staff. We got in late and someone was there to welcome us in...

The AMAZING/FRIENDLY/POSITIVE staff and GORGEOUS retreat were exactly what I needed to just get away from it all and experience the quintessential "good vibes" of Olympia. Everything was super duper clean, tidy, COMFY & creative! ...DONT FORGET TO EAT SOME HOMEMADE GRANOLA OR BE TOO SHY TO PLAY SOME OF THE INSTRUMENTS!!! *I will be back time and time again!!"

The Ground Inn is a clean and cozy place to stay, the staff are accommodating and honest. Breakfast is always healthy; the rates are very reasonable considering what you are getting in return. I'd highly recommend staying here!

Stayed in the Men's Dormitory at the Ground Inn last week ... it was excellent! The house is very clean and close to downtown Olympia, the people are friendly, beds are comfortable.

Had a great stay... feels more like a B&B than a hostel. Comfortable bunk beds, free linens, small lockable storage cabinets (big enough for a laptop computer). Bring your own padlock for the cabinets -- a full-size dial combo lock won't fit, but the little TSA travel lock I had was perfect. Not sure if this place is still organic...

This hostel & B&B provides comfort and warm hospitality, combined with scrumptious breakfast. It all combines together for a wonderful stay in downtown Olympia, whether you're here for a day or moving & making this your HQ while you relocate to the community.
