“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

I was on a road trip for a few days and my girlfriend and I decided to head to sequim. We checked almost all the motels around on a late Sunday night and found that the Sundowner Motel was the least expensive @ 55.00 per night. This was the third Motel we stayed at and I was very learly of the cost and the intial look of the Motel. But, Check it out!!! It was clean, the bed was really comfy, the TV was good and the Internet worked better than the other motels. The furnishing were a little outdated but for 55.00 bucks I was really happy - and I'm a hard person to buy over. Good choice

I travel a lot for my job. My agency put me up here after being fed up with hassles from another local motel. I'm not sure this place is better.

The first room I was assigned was filthy. When I pointed this out the manager acted as if I were lying, then after listing all the unclean points (unmade bed, garbage everywhere, etc) she grudgingly gave me the key to a different room and told me they'd move me into the original room after it had been cleaned the next morning. She refused to let me just stay in the first room "because it's a double room and you are one person."
The next morning I'm ready at checkout time to switch rooms (after working a night shift the night prior). The manager informed me the room I was to move to was still not ready and would not be until after 2pm. The whole time I was to be sleeping was eaten up by this room change she insisted on!
Once the room issue was settled I was woken up the second day by the maid trying to enter my room even though I had the Do Not Disturb sign on my door around 10 am (I work night shift). It's not pleasant to be jolted out of bed a few hours after falling asleep!
I decided to check out early (before the start of my last shift) and the manager hassled me about when I was checking out and would not write me a reciept reflecting the accurate date of my check out. She said: "We can't get your room clean now (at 1:30pm). The staff is all gone." When I was honest with my agency and told them the actual circumstances of my checkout she hassled them about the descepancy even though it was her lie that caused the problem!

My second stay started out with the manager hassling me about the early check out and reminding me of their check out time no fewer than 4 times in 5 minutes. I comfirmed with her that I intended to stay for 5 nights and watched as she marked 5 nights on my check in card. Two days later, around 11am, the maid wakes me up again to tell me I was supposed to be out of my room by 11 that day! A call to my agency fixed the problem... but my sleep was still interrupted. :(
It seems that the this cutstomer is never right at The Sundowner!

Oh, one last thing: Sugar Ants in every room! Not many but enough to give you the willies. D8

If I had to pay for my room, I would not choose this place.

We travel frequently & review a lot...when we have a 'good one', we like to return. THAT is why, 2 years on, we came back to the Sundowner. It had been redecorated in 2010, staff were upbeat and we looked forward to seeing them again in June '12.
1st the good news; bed, shower and TV were 'average'...but that was as good as it got
Sorry to say, standards have slipped....a lot. It hurts to have to report that the carpet was stained & smelled, sink was rusted, table sticky and not cleaned properly.
Had we done a pre - inspection, we would have moved on...It was only our 'trust from 2 years ago' which allowed us to pre pay and go to our room. 'dismay' followed.
In all our travels, this is the ONLY motel without morning HOT H2O for tea and /or coffee in the office. Staff were unconcerned. Use your room microwave & a paper cup filled with H2O 5 times for your thermos to make tea she suggested? "we did have coffee pre 0900h but it's finished"
As tea drinkers, we could only shrug & move on.
Hope this management regains their enthusiasm for the business....soon.

Room Tip: Pre inspection required....Look 1st, then pay & stay if it's ok

This place was awful! The room was filthy. I opened the nightstand drawer and it was filled with porno magazines. There was food left in the refrigerator from the previous guests. We brought this to the attention of the office and asked for our money back. She refused and said "how does she know that we didn't bring in the porno" I told her that I was renting the room with my 64 yr old mother and that was absurd! This place was a joke

Room Tip: The Diner next door was excellent

This was the worst place I have stayed. The chairs were filthy, the bathroom fan was missing and the hole filled with dust. Bathroom has small white bugs. No coffee served out of the office.
Look elsewhere!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else. Econo lodge was nice.
