Not happy with the stay

Elevator was not working. There is no drop of area specially when you have kids and luggage. There was no one to help for luggage or for elevator and will not choose this hotel for our next visit…..

This old hotel could be a beautiful example of what Olympia has to offer, but the staff was rude, casual, inattentive and flat-out disinterested. I have stayed here occasionally since 1988, and habe been so disappointed at their excuse for a remodel…the cheapest room furnishings possible, downright flimsy. The elevators were not working except occasionally. Amazingly awful place these days. I loved The Governor back in the day. So sad.

Great staff and location!

This old hotel has a great location and free parking. Our family was comfortable in our room, but the hotel does need some updates and repairs. The elevator was not working. Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Olympia and appreciated how walkable it was from our hotel.

The breakfast was the most interesting I have ever had.

To be truthful, I found this hotel to be rather run-down and in need of a make-over. The furniture and fittings dark and dated. The bedding clean but old and the hallways had that smell of mustiness. The service of the rooms was great and no complaints there. The Hotel is very central and close to almost everything in downtown

Great historic hotel!

Great hotel with fantastic location in Olympia. Parking is included on site and the free breakfast is fantastic. Have stayed here multiple times and have never been disappointed. The rooms underwent a renovation a couple years back (around 2017 or so) and are in great shape.
