This is a lovely place to stay when you're in the Olympia area. We did not want to stay in one more hotel during our visit to the South Sound and so booked in at Short Stay. It was great. Loved having a real kitchen and ROOM to relax in. And it's so close to downtown, too. A quiet and...

I was not pleased here because the front page of their website says "available by day, week, or month" BUT they don't let you stay a day! We only wanted to stay one night and move on with our trip but when we went to book it, reservations says "We require a minimum 2 night stay. Please edit your date...

In 8 years of business you are the first one to bring it to my attention. I didn't make you book two nights and surprised you didn't call me and say "hey Deb, You need to update your website as it may be a bit confusing to future guests instead of a review which may be really hurtful to a...

We loved the central heat since it was rainy and cold during our visit. Main living area is large with two couches; beds are very comfortable; kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make meals. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown Olympia, with its charming coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants.

I have stayed at this lodging several times and it is always super clean. The beds are great and bathroom is nice and big. There is a nice kitchen and dining area if you want to make a meal, all the accessories you need. We will continue to make this our favorite place in Olympia.

We really enjoyed the upper apartment that Debra provided. The apartment was spotless and large, bathroom had lovely plush towels and comfy furniture. There were 2 decent sized bedrooms both with very comfy beds, quiet at night and an easy parking situation. This place is right near the library and walking distance to most things in Olympia. I think my...

For the last couple years, we were thrilled to have such a charming and comfortable home away from home here on Franklin. Everything we needed was available and we were within walking distance of great food and the lake. For short or long stays in the future, I'll check here first.

We often host staff trainings in Olympia office. As a non-profit it can be really pricey to put staff up in a hotel and after finding short stay lodgings, we no longer have to! The Franklin Street apartments are perfect because they are in walking distance to everything - restaurants, the lake, grocery store, coffee shops. Plus it ended up...

I appreciate this place so much, they helped me establish a life here by providing a longer stay until I could find something permanent. I recommend this establishment to anyone staying in the olympia area.

We had a great 10 days in Olympia, and staying at the apartment also meant we could entertain and cook the excellent local produce. Debra is a great host and we loved having the garden to wander through each day.

We stayed here for two nights. We had three bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom. The kitchen had all the things necessary for food preparations and nice living. The place was open and comfortable. There was a little picnic table in the backyard, but we didn't use it. The parking was a little tight in the backyard, but after...
