We were in Port Angeles for my birthday and spend our first night camping (9/23). That went horribly so we needed to get a hotel and this was the one we could afford.
The good: Beds were clean, room is a decent size, everything worked, staff ‘seemed’ friendly enough, location is in a good spot.
The bad: It was $221 for 2 nights, for a 1 bedroom w/ 2 adults. We checked out yesterday morning and my deposit is still MIA (they told me I’d get it back as soon as I checked out, I did not. Then they said today, and it hasn’t came back today.. so yeah). NO AIR CONDITIONING; just fans. They decided to tar the parking lots and had us move out car to the far side during our stay but made us pay full price.. The rooms are very outdated. Bring your own toilet paper if you don’t like using see-through toilet paper.
Also, if you’re the owner and you’re reading this, I’ll be disputing the entire transaction if you do not supply me with a refund for our stay. We overpaid for and underwhelming stay, where we could literally smell the tar through our closed window, lied to, and taken advantage of financially because you were the only hotel with a room open for that first night and raised the price to an unreasonable amount for your MOTEL. You have 24 hours to give me a refund before I put the dispute through my bank.
A spacious, very clean room with a fairly comfortable bed. It’s nice that it has a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Nice furniture and TV.
What’s missing is the Air Conditioner!! They supply 2 stand up fans and a window fan, but the proximity of the road makes it impossible to use the window fan without a terrible racket from traffic! Without AC the room becomes very humid and stuffy quickly.
Also, I’m not sure how big their hot water heater is but we ran out of hot water every time we showered, whether it was morning or night. It looks like the owners are trying to update the rooms because there are construction materials strewn around in haphazard places.
It has good potential but the rooms need AC and they need to clean up the construction materials.
Worst hotel we ever stayed in. AC was a floor-stand fan. No lights in bathroom, towel rack had been ripped off wall and not replaced. Hair dryer had flames shooting out of it. No hangers - front desk attendant David stated “we don’t advertise hangers in the room.” Staff tries to help but no execution skills. There are a lot of hotels in Port Angeles - try any of them before this place. Major disappointment.
We enjoyed our stay. From the steps and the outside door, it did not look like much, but inside it was nice. There was some extra counter space, and the shower looks like it had just been redone and was nice. Some of the towel bars were a little loose, but overall it was a nice enough place to stay. The motel staff was very helpful with check in and also when I had a question. Our room was really close to the main road, so it was a little loud at night, but overall we enjoyed our two night stay.
Goods: clean, comfortable enough, they provided a fan (we like it for the white noise), small fridge and microwave; able to park close to the room; good ice machine; friendly person at check-in
Not-so-goods: very tiny shower with little water pressure, no bathroom shelf to put your stuff, broken towel holder.
Fine if you just need a place to shower and sleep on a budget, but there were a lot of little fixes they could do to make it more accommodating.
