This hotel represented our 6th night on an 8 night whirlwind tour of the Pacific Northwest. With the exception of a very charming Victorian B&B a block from the beach in Oregon, this hotel was the highlight of our accommodations. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the place in the least. Our room faced the back of the building, which overlooked a golf course, so I can't speak for the front. However, it sat back a block from the main thoroughfare, so it was probably just fine as well. The neighborhood had many restaurants from which to choose, and btw, the little lady told me the in-house oatmeal for breakfast was excellent. (I ate the leftover Chinese food from the night before, having been kept cold in the refrigerator and then heated up in the microwave.) The, there is location, location, location. Olympic National Park's Visitor center is very close-by. You MUST drive up to Hurricane Ridge, and although this sounds strange, hope for at least a partially cloudy day! Those snow-capped peaks are especially dramatic with clouds floating among them. We travel on a middle-class budget, and this hotel was the most expensive of our trip (although certainly not super-high priced at all), but it was totally worth it!
