Spent three nights here for a college graduation.
Try for a room in the back with a view of the lake.
Rooms ARE updated, and very comfortable.
Bathrooms are fine.
We found all of the front desk staff to be friendly, and helpful.
Nice to be downtown so you can walk to some good places for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You can also walk to some number of the bars, if that is your interest.
This isn't a boutique hotel - I gave it five stars for the value, comfort, location and staff.
Would stay here in an instant - if I were to be back in Olympia
