Nice one night stay for business. Check-in was quick and the staff very friendly. Was told Lasagna was being served at 6 pm! Very unexpected! Room was clean and nicely decorated. Large HDTV with cable. Was able to connect tablet to HDMI port and stream Netflix. Wi-Fi was 20 down, 10 up. Very quiet building with the exception of the... More

Very pleased with my stay. In particular, the staff were all professional and friendly. Room was clean and quiet, amenities worked. In-room WiFi seemed to cut in and out, but my phone coverage picked up the slack. I will gladly return to this hotel when in the area.

We used this hotel when in town for a wedding. It was a very busy time for us and we really appreciated the great service, calm atmosphere, and quiet surroundings. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The bed and breakfast were ok. All of the staff were friendly, helpful, and very professional.

This hotel was perfect for everything I needed for my business trip. Everyone was friendly, the breakfast was hot, and the blueberry muffins were delicious. We used the washer and dryer, the computer/printer upfront, and enjoyed the "milk and cookies" at 6pm. WiFi worked great. My only complaint would be that the shower had barely any water pressure, and I... More

I am delighted to read that you had such great stay! We love what we do here and it's really gratifying to know that we created a positive experience for you. I do apologize for the water pressure. We just had a plumber come in to investigate the cause and he was able to increase our water pressure significantly. We... More

The Best Western at Tumwater was great. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The included breakfast was superb which included a good variety of fruit and hot dishes. All we needed was here.

We appreciate your feedback on the towels and soaps. We are transitioning out old towels to a fluffier one and are currently in a trial with a soap dispenser company that provides a higher quality, organic soap, shampoo, and conditioner. We hope you will consider staying with us again. More

This Best Western is the nicest one we have stayed in (and we have stayed over a dozen in the last 3 months all over the USA). The staff go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. Breakfast is also very well done with more then the average choices - all cooked to perfection. Would definitely stay again -... More

Super friendly, efficient, helpful front desk staff. Super clean rooms, free WiFi, and very comfortable beds. Close to freeway without freeway noise. Well made basic hot breakfast (but in a dark, grim, cheerless back room). Bad soundproofing in rooms..next door neighbors conversations were amplified, every slam of their fridge, drawers, or door made walls shake, and when they walked around... More

Best Western Tumwater Inn is a pleasure to stay at. Staff treat me as family. They are very welcoming. With several restaurants within easy walking distance, everyone can find something to eat. In addition to a hot breakfast, there is also a 5pm social hour with hot food and cool drinks. And there are fresh cookies at 6pm every night.

We have stayed at this hotel when we are visiting in California. The service is great and the rooms are always very clean. They provide a free breakfast which works very well for us as we can help ourselves and be on the road early in the morning.
