First of all I'd like to say that the photos of the rooms severely need an updating. It's a lie to use those and act like the rooms are recently done. At least put the year that update took place! The rooms are really tired looking now; overly used looking. The trim around the door of our room was shoddily repaired and then not painted so things are unfinished which didn't help the out-dated, worn look of our room. Most of the plug-ins didn't work, either because they wouldn't hold a plug or they were out of commission. I didn't expect it to be like the Hampton...but I did expect things would be in good repair if not fancy. I was disappointed there. Another thing I found inconvenient is that if you want a luggage rack you'd better bring your own or a make shift version of one; say two t.v. trays for example. The lady who was at the desk when we checked in was kind enough to scare up a couple of folding chairs for us to open and use seat-to-seat! Ridiculous! It's a basic item in any room. Luckily I think ahead enough to have packed a three-prong plug adaptor with three outlets and an extension cord! Didn't know I neeeded to bring a place to set our luggage. I also brought a 4-cup coffee maker and our own grounds and mugs. It's a good idea if you are a serious coffee drinker. They do provide a 4-cup coffee maker but their complimentary in-room coffee is really wimpy. I'd need to use four packets to make one pot! You will need either paper filters or a reusable 4-cup filter to use if you bring your own coffee grounds. Might be good to bring creamer and sweetener too if that's your deal. Walls are pretty thin so if you are a light sleeper pray for quiet neighbors or use ear plugs! I would stay there again only in a pinch but it wouldn't be my first choice. Friendly staff though!

Room Tip: It's really tight quarters in a single Q bed room! Ask if there's a dresser. We had none...a...

Stayed here while looking for a apartment for rent!! My husband is going to be in Puyallup for about a year !!
I'm pretty hard to please but this hotel was very clean and nice !! The staff was very helpful!! There is a restaurant in the parking lot called Jason's great food drinks and staff as well!! We have found the hotels here are very expensive im always Leary when a place is much cheaper than the rest but in this case its really not a bad place at all and much cheaper

A few of us waited a few minutes at the desk for the employee to appear.No bell signal our arrival. Motel Puyallup is located off of a very busy interstate. It is a bare bones, just the basics kind of motel. Cigarettes and trash litter the landscaping and parking lot. The room, while it needs many aesthetic upgrades, is clean. For the price, it is fine because the location allowed for us to easily drive to the Mount Rainier National park the next morning. A halfway decent restaurant is located within walking distance of the motel. Pastries are offered to the guests in the morning.

This hotel is very close the fairgrounds and very quiet! Worth staying. Rooms were a little out dated but the front desk ladies were very sweet. Overall I'm happy I found this hotel! Keep in mind traffic is crazy during the weekend of fair.

Very friendly manager. Room and bath were clean. Seemed to be pretty popular probably because the price was quite competitive. Pretty easy access to highways. We were coming off a camping trip in Mount Rainier and needed to rest/clean up before our flight back to Florida the next morning. Only disappointment was the free breakfast which was very, very minimal.
