Downtown is not a pleasant place to be in Olympia. Having the parking lot security guy at the hotel tell me not to worry about my partner putting a parking pass on his dash because they never enforce that was disconcerting to say the least. Apparently it’s not a problem for anybody to park or be in their parking lot.

The old-fashioned state of the hotel was very attractive.

Liked the veiw from the 6 inch balcony on the backside of the building. Didn't like being woke up every night to a fire alarm. Or having to qalk up and down 8 flights of stairs because the elevator is broken. Overall not my idea of a 3 star hotel id give it 2 at best. Wont be going back
