We needed to get a room in town because we had a big wind storm on the way. We picked the lakeview and made the right choice. The only problem is that we lost power at the motel and not at home, Oh well!

This is your typical one-star family-run motel. It is very clean, and the rooms are better than average. The price is very good - $50 a night, and that includes a continental breakfast that was adequate. The motel is right off the Interstate, so you will hear the traffic a bit - I had a good night's sleep and was...

To break a l-o-n-g drive between Hillsboro Oregon and Vancouver BC, we chose a mid-point for a night’s stopover. Centralia isn’t precisely midway, but this overnighter worked well for us. Our Lakeview Inn room was clean, with older style furniture, and an almost vintage (still working!) TV. Free wifi was reasonably fast. There was air-conditioning, a refrigerator, microwave and coffee-making...

Just off highway 5 making the location very strategic for people passing by like us. But it was surprisingly not noisy at all. Most rooms have shared back balconies over looking a lake. The room felt old but was maintained and clean. The blanket was those old style fury and itchy layered with bed sheet. TV was old big screen...

It was a little noisy with the freeway, but pretty clean. Not bad for the price. I don't have any complaints about the motel, but no rave reviews either. It was a alright stay for a alright price. Convenient.

We were there a week. Room was clean, but needs updating. The only real complaint was the towels were paper thin. They must have a problem with theft as they put into the guest book the cost you will be charged if items are missing. The breakfast is awesome, has waffles, toast, apples, cold and hot cereal, yogurt, pastries, juice...

This is a nice simple motel in Centralia. It isn't fancy but very clean and rooms overlook a man made lake. See picture. This motel is right next to the freeway. It is very quiet though and we did not hear any noise at all. Front desk was friendly and efficient. A nice option for an overnight stay.

Location was good. Wasn't long trip to Rainier NP and St. Helens. Despite highway motel was quiet. Breakfast was American (muffins, waffels etc.) but ok. Walmart about 5 min. To drive. Furniture was a little bit dusty.
