What a treat! They offered us an additional rate reduction when they found out we were staying several nights. ALL of the staff was friendly, helpful and polite. The room was spacious and clean. They use a flat sheet instead of a bedspread and change all of the bedding between guests. They do not have a pool anymore and their...

My family had been on the road for a week on a trip to Vancouver Island, stopping along the way to visit friends and enjoy some tourist attractions. We stayed at the Peppermill Empress for one night for a place to sleep in order to continue our trip. This hotel is cheap, and the rooms are clean and spacious. There...

This place was very clean and comfortable. If they would update the decor a little more stylishly, I could give this place more points. But it's a pretty basic hotel - clean, comfortable, but pretty bland and sterile looking. (A nice accent wall color in the rooms would do so much!) The staff was very friendly and courteous. The location...

The rooms were in great shape. Staff were friendly and helpful. Really quiet for the proximity to the interstate. Convenient restaurant right next door. The price was awesome. I would highly recommend this place for a budget stay.

I have stayed here for a number of years while I work the Chehalis Garlic Festival. The motel is clean and convenient for me. The lobby is open and inviting. The office personal are friendly. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable.

The room was fine, but the beds were very saggy in the middle. Breakfast was nothing special. We complained about the bad beds and they took $20 off the room fee in the morning after saying they would take $40 off.

Came to Chehalis to visit some of the history and parks. We found this hotel to be clean, comfortable and quiet. I had read the beds were firm in another review, but I found the pillows to be more uncomfortable. They were thick balls which kept my neck bent. Most of the night I slept without one. That is my...

Large, clean simple room. Basic breakfast (disposable plates, bowls, etc.). Easy off-highway access if northbound on I-5. Trickier access from southbound ramp due to one-way streets. Fine for on overnight stop.
