Stayed at this motel for one night when nothing else was available. Overpriced for what you get and all kinds of shady goings-on in the parking lot. Desk person was not very friendly. The room itself was okay with a fairly comfortable bed, but it doesn't feel safe here. Wouldn't stay again.

The motel owner is very fishy when it comes to money. I stayed here 2 weeks. He told me before I came $400 a week...I get here he said $460 plus $10 everytime my boyfriemd comes...then he said a flat.rate of $50 a week for him. Only because there were 4 of us at this time and by law if they're are 4 u have to have 2 beds which is $20 extra a night. So I said ok that $510 pricy but resonable because everywhere else is.much more unless u go South my bf works in kent so I didn't wanna do that. So I ask if I pay daily how.much he says $80 a night. Well. $80 verses $72 I'll save a little bit. He said the $460 included a $20 deposit. So the nx wk.I went to.pay I said $490 right u already have my $20 deposit he said $500 its $10...then I needed 2.extra nights I said how much he said $85 i just paid it didn't argue because my bf works lomg hours and gets home.at 3am so I didn't want to wake him of he told.me.to.leave. The owner pockets a lot of money. Call before u come to.get a quote.He will charge u based on your looks and what u drive. He knows my bf works and we have 2 decent vehicles but we atill struggle. We have 3 kids. I'm glad I finally got.my apartment because I can't afford $2,000 a month. Also if u pay weekly u get 2 towels once a week. They never service your room. He said if i pay daily i get daily service the 2 days i paid daily no service. Very unprofessional. You can't ask the house keepers anything because they speak no english and they look at you like you're stupid. He prob thinks I'm just stupid but I did my research and it's much more to book weekly anywhere else especially online because they're so many taxes. Online they give u a good deal then when u chk.out it's the same original price because of taxes and fees. Motel life.is not a.good way to live unfortunately I had to.until we got our place.

We had been in Hood River and needed a place to stay overnight prior to flying out of Sea Tac. Found this place on Trip Advisor and the price was right, figured we could handle one night. We survived, but it was not a pleasant experience. Some sketchy guests and neighborhood, the wifi was very poor, no one available at the office at 8 am when we wanted to check out (door was locked, no answer to doorbell). I would avoid this motel.

Very clean and office staff very nice! It was very quiet and close to restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again in the future. People who run the motel are so very nice and helpful.

This was the only motel that was not full one weekend night at 1am. The first room I got was likely remodeled, and it was very comfortable, it was directly above the office. It was very clean and I came to stay here 3 more times subsequently, until I found better deals. Pros 1. The rooms are well maintained 2. The RapidRide bus stop going southbound towards the Federal Way Transit center is located in front of this motel and a car place. 3. I felt safe here and slept well. 4. The showers and bathroom were Clean. Cons 1. No continental breakfast 2. Depending on the room, you'll either get a nice remodeled room or an outdated, but clean room. 3. Sometimes they don't give you the advertised ($40/night) price. I believe they took that sign down now. Overall, I liked my stays here.
