I found this motel by asking the cashier at a local gas station where to stay in town and she said trail west motel. I was happy that I stop to fill my tank at this gas station. She was right, stay at the trail west motel. The motel guy at the front desk was very nice. And the price of the room was also a good rate, so good I wanted to see the room. The motel clerk gave me a key to the room and I check everything out for myself and the room was perfect.
The house keeper I had was great. She was very friendly and kept my room spotless. When I asked where the ice machine was, she ran and got me ice. It is too bad the managers dont learn from her. I would guess they are a husband and wife. He uses profanity and seemed to be drunk, she was okay, but it took her an hour to get to the desk so i could check in. She looked like she had been sleeping.
Spotless, friendly and comfortable! As teachers, my family travel all over the Pacific Northwest each summer. Most hotel/motels we stay at are little more than spots to shower and sleep before we are off on our next adventure. Many are dirty, tacky and downright uncomfortable, if not arguably dangerous from a sanitary standpoint. Trails West is a shining exception. The room was the cleanest I've been in all summer. Every aspect of the motel, from the mattress to the pillows (extras provided with a smile) to the towels, was first class. We have stayed in fancy hotels in Seattle that were not a nice as comfortable as this.
We have stayed at Trails West several times over the past couple of decades. For our money it is easily the best motel in the area. Over the years the place has gotten better each time we have visited. The new owners said they have been there less than a year. We are hoping they have a long run because we love the area and hope to return each summer and enjoy the quality we experienced this visit.
Room number 1 is wheel chair accessible and has a FANTASTIC shower that is accessible as well.
No regulator on the air conditioners so we were actually cool on a 100 degree day/night.
(one of our biggest complaints at the larger chain motels)
Three lakes and the Grand Coulee Dam within a mile or so of Trails West.
Best Breakfast of the summer: Pepper Jack Bar and Grill. Incredible food.
Skip the Siam Palace. Come on, who microwaves 'deep fried prawns'? Yuk!
Wireless and wired internet.
Loved the heated pool. It was one of the cleanest I have been in.
The room was well equiped and very neat and clean. We had internet assess which was a plus for the price.
Extra pillows was no problem when we asked the housekeeper for them and we even had burgers cooked right on the gas grill. It was great to have a cook out without having to go to the park.
