The places in downtown Olympia, WA were booked. One of the hotels recommended we try The Red Lion. We were not disappointed. Staff friendly, rooms very nice.
Its a drive up the hill... so not great if you want to be walking distance to restaurants, etc.
The view from the hotel's restaurant is very nice though.
The rooms are a good size. Quiet surroundings.
The hotel does have a computer workstation you can use but it was not working the evening that we were there.
We were given options of two different rates, AAA and non-AAA that would include the breakfast buffet. Difference of about $14. We opted for the non-AAA higher rate and the breakfast buffet was very good. Everything you could want, hot meals, cold meals, coffee, tea, juice, milk, yoghurt, etc.
And the view from the restaurant was of the pond/lake, green grounds and I5 in the distance.
Hotel also has an outdoor pool that looked great. Great seating around the pool. We did not use but wished we could have...
