Booked this room so my 13 year old daughter and I could attend a dog show at the State Fair in Puyallup. It was a huge pain to get the key cards to work. I walked back and forth several times before I finally was able to even get INTO the room. The first night there was a power outage for 4 hours; the second night there was a loud fight outside our room; the third morning at 6am some homeless lady wandered up to me while I was packing our van for the show and asked if she could use my shower. Then she went upstairs and entered a different room. ?? Unfortunately, I just didn't feel safe here with my daughter. In the area farthest from the office, along the back of the building, there were a lot of creepy people who didn't look like they were up to any good.

Spent one night at this Motel 6 before heading to Seattle. The hotel is located right off freeway which is very convenient. Rooms are clean and spacious, classic Motel 6. Shower was nice. No hairdryer or soup or shampoo. The neighborhood seems little shady, do not leave valuables in the car overnight.
