The reviews scared me a bit and admittedly it wasn't in thee greatest part of town and the outside of the building needed a major MAJOR power wash but all that said... The room was great. Super clean big and comforters were new and everything was fine. Breakfast closed early as earlier reviews said which is to me a sign...

We booked here as we were on our way to Rainier park from Oregon. The room size was good, this is about as enthusiastic that I can get . We had a room with a dividing door which might as well not been there, at times I felt I should be joining in the conversation with the guests next door....

Our experience very much mirrored what others have said. The only real redeeming feature was the waffles at breakfast which the children enjoyed (oh and being a bit closer to Mt St Helens, the reason why we booked). Hallways smelled worse than the rooms, furniture was old, dirty and stained. Beds were an abomination. etc etc etc ... Were less...

As most of the other reviews state, this motel has some major problems. I should have checked Trip Advisor reviews first. But we were on a roadtrip, and the price was right for just a place to shower and sleep. Good: cheap rate, close to Mt. St. Helens and interstate, free wifi, free continental breakfast (including fresh waffles), firm beds,...

Our second econo lodge in two nights and we didnt think it could get worse, we were wrong. The best thing about econo lodges appears to be their included breakfasts, here we were treated to waffles so that was nice but by far the best of the situation. We booked this so that we were closer to Mount St Helens...

Our room was clean , but out dated. New mini fridge and microwave. It seems they are in the process of updates. The beds were so hard, my daughter said sleeping on the ground we would have been more comfortable. The room had a musty smell, like old carpet. We could see they were working to improve, and staff was...

Always space for your boat and trailer and have never had any problems. Manager will also negotiate if you fish here often. I usually stay in room 117, near the office, facing front. That way I'm closer to my boat. Way quieter than Motel 6 as is about a mile from the freeway. Also bigger rooms and cheaper. Only complaint...

My wife and I planned a trip to Mt St Helens and looked around for the best prices on hotels and found this place. It was small and decent. Nice new hardwood floors in the room, bed was a little old but was comfortable enough. After reading the other posts I saw that trains pasted by every so often. This...

Got a room on the back side. Good room w/ fridge and micro. Floors were nice. Bed was toasted but better than an inflatable air bed. Trains took some getting used to but became white noise. The fridge and micro were a nice surprise considering I only paid about $55. I'd come back.

Thank-you for your feedback! We really appreciate it. We have done a lot of upgrades to the property and are planning on doing more. We are planning on purchasing new pillow top mattresses for all of the rooms. They should arrive shortly. We're glad you enjoyed the fridge and microwaves. We just recently acquired those for all of the rooms....

Reviewed 2 December 2015

We saw the sign which said, "newly renovated rooms", so we thought it should be okay to stay here. We were given a room at the back of the building, so initially we thought it would be a good thing because we like peace and quiet for sleeping. However, not the case. There were trains running on the track at...
