Issaquah, Washington
Reviewed 16 September 2015

The room was small but clean and is in a good central location. The bathroom was modern but the water temperature in the shower fluctuated. The motel lacked a ice machine outside that was available for everyone but when I inquired at the desk the person on duty went back and got me a container of ice.

This is a budget hotel, and if you are looking for upscale amenities, well, as their web site says you've come to the wrong place. On the other hand, if you want an ultra clean and comfortable spot, this is it. We stayed for 2 nights in one of the "upstairs" rooms, which was large and looked out over the...

I enjoyed my stay, and both owners and staff very helpful and friendly. Good location, lots of facilities - although I didn't use the gym or pool because weather good and sight seeing. Room was fine, although the walls thin and can hear through them. Other guests considerate whilst I was there, no late night noise etc.

Hello! Thanks for coming and taking the time to write a nice review. We do work hard to ensure all guests have a great stay and that is a fact with an older, but mostly renovated motel, the walls aren't as thick as a new facility. It's not bad, but we are adamant about quiet time after 10 PM. We...

We went to Ucluelet as an alternative to Tofino so next year when we come back to North America we can do better planing. Turned out our preference was Ucluelet over Tofino. As a budget hotel this hotel should be rated as excellent in it's category. The owner simply knocks herself out to assist and help her customers therefore if...

This little motel is downtown Ucluelet and close to everything the town has to offer. The room was smallish but very clean and the beds were comfortable. Staff was super friendly and helped us out with the rest of our itinerary. A pleasant surprise and good value.

We were in a large room that made it easy to accommodate our son as well as ourselves. The kitchenette is small and basic, but it allows you to fix your own breakfast.
