Birthday Get Away!!

Pros: The Staff and the Room was CLEAN!!!
Cons: The Continental Breakfast COULD have a few NEW items but not bad
Location: Located just off the freeway. shopping is close with a few little pubs close.
My wife and planned a Casino trip for my birthday, but didn't want to drive the hour plus home afterwards. booked a room here not expecting much but a place to shower and Nap!!! Upon our arrival it was a pleasant surprise!!! The staff was very friendly and informative, building was SPOTLESS (very important to my wife), Room was spacious and warm nothing fancy but VERY NICE. The only issue was I booked a King bed and with a Baseball tournament in town they miss fired on that. HOWEVER the staff cut a little bit coin off my rate, gave us a Queen and ALL WAS GOOD!!! we plan to stay here again.

Pros: I have stayed in a lot of hotels and have always looked for a good deal before I stayed and this hotel is high on my list for price and cleanliness.
Cons: Maybe add tea and more coffee to the rooms. Eggs for breakfast would also be a plus.
Location: Easy access to restaurants, mini stores and freeway.
The rooms have all the amenities that is needed for an overnight stay. It is a basic hotel but gives out 2 different newspapers and fruit during the day which is a real plus. The beds though were AWESOME if you like firm beds, which I do. If you don't, you will probably be a little disappointed. The pillows are quality hotel grade as is the mattress. The breakfast is quite good. They serve French toast, waffles, ( Have to microwave) but very good, fruit , cereal, toast, bagels, and juices, coffee. I may have forgotten some but in all, enough to enjoy. If your looking for a reasonable, clean, quality hotel for a night or two, this is a great place to stay.

NO road noise

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Cons: Someone was smoking in the hallway- non smoking 'rooms' and out air-condition was very loud when it cycled down. I let the staff know
Location: Family party at Borst Park, so didn't see much. Heard there were Antiques ,Factory outlets near the Hotel. Ate at Judy's Country Kitchen - Awesome
Was a quiet room from highway noise and since it set a parking lot away from I-5 , that is pretty impressive. Family had 4 separate rooms and they said the same thing. --room to room heard a bit , but that was all. . We needed xtra blankets and pillows- went picked them up at the desk- fresh smelling and comfy. bed a bit to firm to my liking.

Good rooms with space to move around

Pros: The spacious room was very nice. Plenty of parking close to all entrances.
Cons: The odor from the room cleaner was very, very strong and most unpleasant to me.
Location: This hotel is very nice inside and out, but the surrounding town of Centralia is very run down. There really isn't anything to do there.
The hotel itself is nice. Front desk staff were all very nice and helpful. My room was quite large for a hotel room. Room was clean, however the chemicals used to clean the room had a very strong odor that was unpleasant to me. The internet was good. Hotel was not very busy when I stayed so it was very quiet. Plenty of parking.

Cons: This hotel is nice, but sometimes the cleaning spray or whatever they use smells like bug spray when you first walk in. Maybe that could be changed.
This hotel is convenient for us when visiting family. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Easy to get to, great location. Even though close to the freeway, it was quiet. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate.
