the Governor was not our first pick, but when all other hotels in lacey were full due to the jazz festival we had to find something else late at night. we called the Governor, the front desk girl was very professional on the phone, said they had 1 room left so we reserved it and drove to Olympia which is not that far from lacey. the hotel is situated downtown Olympia, we were checked in promptly. Our room was on the 4th floor facing the street. since it was a Saturday night, I would have expected the night life noise to be a bother, but I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't.
our room seemed like it had recently got new carpeting, so it had the new carpet smell. I am giving the hotel an average rating only because we didn't take advantage of the breakfast, just coffee so I can't give a full rating. we pretty much just needed a warm bed to sleep in after a long day of traveling and a wedding in tacoma. the bed and pillows were comfortable. there is offstreet parking and underground parking.
overall our experience at the Governor was fine.
