The Governor, a Coast Hotel, Olympia
Great Stay!
It was a great stay! I was worried a about the elevators from reading other reviews. And yes, they did have an elevator that wasn’t working. The one that was working was pretty slow at times, especially during checkout time as the housekeepers use it as well. But we were in the second floor and found no in inconvenience I’m usung the stairs. The breakfast was great, the beds were comfy and the locations was just the best! The rooms were definitely musty and you can tel it’s an older building, but we didn’t mind. We had a great vacation.

Elevator wasn't working and there is no air conditioning. So, overall we probably wouldn't stay there again. It's very dated

All the employees were extremely friendly but the building has major issues. Check-in took forever because they couldn’t confirm which rooms were clean, the elevators didn’t work, water pressure was bad, etc etc etc

Great view! Best spot in Olympia
Elevator wasn't working, but 5 stars anyways. Get a room with a view! Great value
