LOCATION-LOCATION -LOCATION- I LOVE THE DOWNTOWN AND ALL IT HAS TO OFFER! I owned JINJOR a Woman's Clothing Boutique in downtown Olympia for about 20 years. I catered to many woman who were dressing for special occasions and they were always asking me for a place their families could come for a week or more that had a full kitchen. I designed Short Stay Lodgings to be a Home Away From Home for all of our travelers. Corporate Stay or Grandparents love our kitchens. Downtown Olympia has a taste of everything from the State Capitol to museums and the world class Washington Center for the Performing Arts(only two blocks away) Olympia has so much to offer of old world charm which you can see in some of the classic old well maintained buildings in the downtown core such as the Security Building which is home to DillInger's Restaurant. I have always enjoyed walking or biking to the waterfront or the downtown boutiques and cafe's. 910 Franklin seemed like the perfect spot. Europeans seem to particularly appreciate the elegant and functional decor. It is a clean, quiet, and comfortable place to retreat in the heart of downtown Olympia.
Attention foodies: Our kitchens are fully loaded and we are very close to Farmers Market and Bayview Market. the Evergreen State College, the Olympia State Capitol, Legislature, and all the shopping and cafe's, boutiques, wine bar, Batdorf and Bronson and more are all within walking distance.
We had a lovely time in Olympia and staying here was a big part of it. Great Location, very comfortable, quiet, good bed, WIFI, all terrific. Thanks and we may well be back.
We are from Carmel and Sonoma, California
Was a great location and fit our needs perfectly! Clean and comfortable.
My partner and I stayed at Short Stay Lodgings while visiting family in Olympia. The apartment is clean, fully and tastefully furnished with a full kitchen so we didn't have to spend any money eating out, and is like staying at a friend's house, not at all like a motel.
Also, it felt good staying in a place that uses all green products to clean and has all natural fiber bedding. No chance of chemical sensitivities, and the owner also guarantees no pets, so there's no chance of allergies either. It's right next to a really cool community garden that you can hang out in, and right across the street from a fabulous library. Also, right in the middle between downtown and the Capitol, both an easy walk. I'd stay again next time we come.
Shortstay Lodgings offered a lovely stay, within walking distance of just about everything we wanted to do in Olympia. The accommodations were comfortable and welcoming. Not only the interior, but the garden spaces outside provided a welcome retreat after shopping and dining downtown, and browsing the library bookshelves just a block away. Thank you for the home away from home. It was great!
It is a little tricky making arrangements from across the planet, however Debra made it easy! She was prompt and friendly in all of our email exchanges. When we arrived, we were jet-lagged and ready to settle in. She met us there and our 6 year old daughter took to her immediately. Debra had even left games in our apt for her to play with. The apartment is lovely and comfortable (we stayed upstairs) and close to everything we needed. If I had a question, there was no hesitation to call Debra, I knew she would help out with anything I needed. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we are booked again for this coming summer and have also rented downstairs for our oldest daughter's family. I appreciate all that Debra does to make the apartment eco-friendly as well. We love it and will come back year after year! My daughter calls it the "house hotel" and is looking forward to going back!
Very glad we stayed here. Very clean and the owner even provided a high chair and bed for our young son. The location was very convenient for siteseeing in the Puget Sound. We could walk to many sites in Olympia including the lovely Farmer's Market and the Capital. I especially appreciated the green cleaning products used as my wife is chemically sensitive and some hotels just kill her. A good value for the money especially for a family.
I rented the top floor Short Stay Lodgings condo for a weekend in the summer of 2009. I was traveling with my two young children and my parents. My parents took the back bedroom, and the host gave us an air mattress for the floor of the front room for my kids. It was a snug fit, but a large (full/queen?) airbed fit in the front room's floor space, and I had my boys in with me instead of out in the living area to be disturbed by the adults' later hours.
I'll start with the only negative: the location might be considered "transitional." There is a large, empty church parking lot across the street from the condo, so we felt a bit like we were in a rundown, abandoned area when we arrived. Also, there is only street parking, which is something I'm used to (living in the Boston area), but it disturbed my parents a bit. Having said all this, no one bothered us or our car while we stayed here. It was more of a first impression, and will more likely strike suburbanites than those used to urban living.
The location is, paradoxically, also pretty good. If it hadn't been blazing hot, we could've easily walked to the Children's Museum, the waterfront farmer's market, a really great restaurant, a cool fountain that the kids ran around in, etc. Just a few blocks away, we found fantastic coffee shops and what I, in my middle-aged ignorance, assume were hip shops and restaurants. The Children's Museum was the highlight of Olympia for the kids.
The condo isn't large, but we were so much more comfortable than we would've been in the hotel where my dad's golfing buddies were staying. We were grateful for the host's helpful information provided when she let us in and also in a handy book on site. The climate control was fantastic during a heat wave. The rear yard shared with a lovely B&B was beautiful and so different than the urban front of the building, but we heard no noise from the lower level unit or any neighbors. The kitchen was compact, just squeezing us all around the dining table, but fully equipped, and we did appreciate the laundry machines with a messy toddler in our group. Wifi worked great and we appreciated the small desk in the living room where we could park the laptop up out of the kids' reach.
You can walk to any downtown shops, cafes, theaters. the YMCA is two blocks and has an indoor swimming pool and work-out facilities. This is a great location for legislative housing as we are walking distance to the state Capitol. We also have an additional three bedroom apartment home on the westside of Olympia with all the same amenities as our downtown apartments. Give us a call for Legislative rates. Extended stays must be booked by talking with the owner for special rates. Please give us a call with any questions.
