To all of you traveling that need an extremely perfect place to stay. Either overnight or a few days.
This Best Western was absolutely the best in all categories.
The Manager is the Best.
It shows in the rooms & staff.
Wonderful beds, comforters, pillows, free WiFi. Newspaper, internet service in the lobby.
Coffee,tea, cookies. Then a full breakfast in the morning, no charge!
Workout room, laundry room.
Location right off I-5. Fred Meyer, Costco and many great restaurants.
I hope to stay again, to everyone there thank you for going above & beyond to make my own personal stay the best !!

We found this Best Western to be an extremly good value. We booked on line and got the internet rate. We asked for a reccommendation for dinner and was given the name of an excellent Itallian Restaurant. We were able to get a complimentary appetizer by showing our room card key. The breakfast fit the diet perfectly. The entir staff were helpful and friendly. Great place to stay if you are going to the Department of Retirements, 3 minutes away. We will definetly stay there again.

This was a quick visit to Olympia, and we had not stayed at this hotel before. We found our room very comfortable. We used the computers in the lobby, and appreciated being able to print what we needed. Staff was helpful!!! Breakfast was very good. We will be back!!!

We have stayed here before so we knew what to expect. It is a bit hard to get to. When you come off the I-5 be sure to be in the right hand of the 2 left-turning lanes onto Capitol Blvd.The BW sits in a lot behind the Shell gas station and you have to make a quick turn to access it. The receptionist was extremely efficient as she handled our check-in effortlessly at the same time as she was dealing with a seemingly endless series of phone calls. While the decor was a bit dated, the room was very clean and quiet with a fridge, flat screen TV, computer desk and chair etc. The king-sized bed was as comfortable as we have ever had in a hotel. Wifi was a problem the last time we stayed here but it has obviously been addressed as there was a strong wifi signal this time. Our only (minor) complaint was that the heating unit made quite a bit of noise when it kicked-in but it was noted by the staff when we checked out and I expect that it will be repaired. The best part of the stay was the cold breakfast that we had at 5 am (hot food comes out at 6). There was a good variety and a great fruit salad. This is a very good place to stay about 1 hour south of Seattle.

I've stayed at numerous Best Westerns and I've yet to be disappointed.

This particular one is having the lobby renovated so the entrance isn't where one would normally expect it. The staff here were friendly and welcoming and check in uneventful.
The room was large, spacious and clean, the bed nice and firm, They had a fridge unit in the room which is always nice as well as a flat panel TV for you're viewing pleasure.

This one is just off interstate 5 with several restaurants nearby. There is also a Fred Meyer grocery store within a hop, skip and a jump as well if you'd rather save you're cash.

Sleeping arrangements were excellent with no interrupted cycles.They also have a number of items for breakfast as well.

All in all not a bad stay.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side facing away from the road.

It was a pleasure staying here.
Fast & easy check in, with friendly staff.
Continental breakfast was great, again, staff was super friendly.
We enjoyed the pool and hot tub at 11:00pm, had the place to ourselves.
Spotlessly clean, the beds are very comfortable and the place is very quiet.

We arrived about 10 at night. Initially thought it was closed, but found entrance was open. Bed was nice, loved the down comforter. Kept me nice and warm. Shower was hot the way I like it. Breakfast was great, only issue was coffee grinds in hot water and the attendant was wonderful in getting that taken care of for me.
