“The Best Place to Stay in Puyallup, Wa.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

The room has fully equipped kitchen which included a coffee maker, microwave, and toaster.The bathroom is large enough to accommodate plus size & handicapped people. The bathtub has a removable shower head & seating area. The room has a large comfortable queen size bed. All rooms are non smoking & no one is allowed to smoke within 25 feet any building. This is the best place to stay in Washington! There's a bus stop in front of the building that will take you anywhere in the city and surrounding towns like Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia... The rates are very low compared to other extended stay hotels.

The room was clean and spotless and air worked great which was important on the 4th of July weekend . I would stay there again and the staff is friendly and great as well. Its not perfect but what motel or hotel is .I travel for work and as a woman I feel safe here with the key carded entrances and stairwells and room.

I am a gentleman in my 50s who travels a lot for work. I have no problem staying at a budget hotel. Despite the advertisements and the website, the actual experience you receive at this property is well BELOW a standard budge level hotel.

There are also a series of "Issues' with this property which you should be aware of before making a reservation.

Note: If you book through the Hotel's own website, you will be quoted a "total",( and they do refer to it as a "total"). It appears to be very reasonable. Yet when you check in, you are told that the ACTUAL cost will be about twenty percent more. If you happen to have a printed copy of the page from their own website which clearly shows the word "total", they will then tell you that it "does not include TAXES and other fees".

The website promotes "Free HIGH Speed internet". When you input the code to initially log into the free HIGH speed internet, you will be asked if you want to "upgrade" for an additional fee. T
This fee is several additional dollars per day. Or you can upgrade to an even higher "High Speed internet, for a few additional dollars. I can tell you that, at least in this particular property, their "HIGH speed internet" is on par with 1995 dial up service.

Additionally, do not plan to use your computer for work related purposes. The internet service in my room only worked within three feet of the front door. The tiny table, the only work space in the room, was stuck back in the rear of the unit -- the internet would not work at all back there

My cell phone would not work at all inside the room. I had to go outside to get a cell signal. In the course of my stay, I noticed a number of other guests who also had to go outside to make calls. Many of them just go far enough to get a signal. Be prepared to be awakened at all hours of the night and forced to listed to irate girlfriends complain LOUDLY to boy friends. Very personal issues, at embarrassingly high volumes.

I am not a light sleeper. I rarely have problems sleeping through the night. While this property is located off a major highway, it is immediately adjacent to a major trail line. I stayed three nights. I was routinely awakened at 3:15am to 3:30am by a LOUD and very king train. There are at least three more trains that come through at about 40 minute intervals from 3:45am to 5:00am.

If you are a larger person or a person with mobility issues you will find it very difficult to get around in these teeny rooms. Beds are 1950s "full or double" sized. They are NOT Queen sized. There is barely enough space to stand up on either side of the bed. The room ceilings appear to be six to eight inches lower than most other hotel room,.
to compensate, the surface of the bed is eight to ten inches lower than the standard hotel bed. It is VERY difficult to stand up after resting on one of these beds.

Noise buffering between the rooms is also an issue. At night not only can you hear a toilet flush, you can also clearly hear a toilet seat being flipped down. You can clearly hear your neighbors talking in a normal voice tone.

Other reviewers will no doubt comment that the hotel is "clean" - as if that is the only consideration making for a satisfactory experience. MY room appeared to be clean, but the room was stuffy, as if someone had been smoking in my non smoking room, or as if it had hidden "sanitation issues".

To call this a "no frills' property is an insult to the other hotels which are no frills. There is no pool. There is no hot tub. There is no exercise room. There is no "business center". There is no ice machine. There is a small coffee machine in the room, but you have to go to the front desk and ASK for the coffee. There are no toiletries in the bathroom. There was one small bar of facial quality soap and NOTHING else. no tissue, no shampoo, nothing, The hand towels are of such poor thin quality you can literally see through them when they are wet.

I do not know if this hotel is located in an "Iffy area". I will tell you that for three nights in a row there were cars and motorcycles coming onto the property between 3am and 4am, and they stayed for short periods of time.

There are no restaurants or shops within walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the EAST side of the property... the adjacent train line runs on the WEST side of...

Although all room are advertised as non smoking that is NOT the case. The smell of nicotine hit me in the face the moment I opened the door and instantly gave me a headache. It also left me feeling as if everything in the room was nasty.

The staff were friendly and accommodating when due to medical reasons I was unable to continue my stay.

Room Tip: Nice people and a reasaonable room as long as you keep your expectations in check. But if you rent...

The rooms are nice and clean. They have little kitchens in them with stove tops and fridge and microwave. For the value, you can't go wrong here. Really helps when you want to save some money and fix meals in your room.

A typical Crossland but with better maintainence than the usual.
Rooms are basic but well equipped with a kitchenette, dishes, pans, microwave, etc.
The staff were pleasant and helpful.
With limited choices in Puyallup, this motel furnishes good accomodations and value

The beds were really hard and it was a full bed. I was not aware they had full beds in hotels. By hard I mean I do not usually have pain when sleeping but I did there! The staff was nice, but could offer nothing. We asked for towels, pillows, and to try another bed. They had non available. I asked for mattress topper or even 2 roll out beds. They did not have either. Would not recommend or stay there again.
