Very clean room, but could not control the temperature. It was chilly outside, but we were sweating inside the room. The thermostat was broken. This room was not worth the $90 it cost. No bathtub, only a shower and no other amenities. The TV signal was horrible as well. Cafe food was pretty good and a decent price. Service was... More

If the restaurant is busy, prepare yourself for a crash course in poor customer service. At least one member of the staff appeared to be sympathetic. Essentially a basic diner menu and general diner atmosphere - with a bar area adjacent to the restaurant. I wish I could review the food itself, but like others who have left reviews, I... More

The rooms here are basic. Comfortable bed, white linens that are fairly plush and soft, flat screen TV. There is no refrigerator, no coffee pot and shower only. I recommend asking for a room on the ends so there is little noise from other tenants. Ours was #1, which is on the end toward the road, but we really noticed... More

I'm not sure if the Washington St Health Department grades restaurants and motels but, if they did, The Tyee Cafe and Motel would get an F, for the smell of the place alone! Moldy, Mildewy(?), Musty, Sour, smell! Cobwebs in the corners, lime (or calcium?) build up on shower head. No place to lay a comb, brush or toothpaste tube... More

Unfortunately, I spent the night at The Tyee Motel and ate at TheTyee Café before I thought to do a Google search and read the reviews.

Stayed 1 night at Tyee Motel and that was TOO LONG!! Asked to see the room first and was told that housekeeping had not cleaned the rooms yet (12 rooms and 12:30 in the afternoon), come back after 2pm. When I checked in, I told the Owner that I had a service animal and was informed that any animal, including... More

Pros: price, location, & restaurant. The restaurant had good sea food, the prices were good, and gave generous portions. Cons: the motel smelled of mildew and a lot of the units did not have screens on the front window. No air conditioning. To check in you have to go to the bar. The wi-fi didn't work all the time.

The only reason I gave it two stars was because the bed was comfortable, the bedding decent, and the room was clean enough (although the carpet seriously needs to be replaced.) Otherwise, I'd say this place is pretty much an overpriced dump. First off, I was pretty shocked that you have to check-in at their trashy bar. Not a good... More

This an old place that is a bit overpriced for what it is, but the bed was comfortable and clean and there was no crazy noise at night - also a good location. Considering that everything else in the Coupeville area are mostly expensive B & B's, this was OK. However, we were with a group and the 2 couples... More
