Shilo Inn & Suites - Salmon Creek
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
Another rainy day in Victoria, but also the day I leave for home. Check out was 11:00 am and although my flight wasn't scheduled to leave until 2:25 pm I went ahead and called a taxi and was at the tiny little Victoria International airport by 11:40 am. Soooo early! There wasn't even anyone at the check-in desk for Horizon Air (a partner of Delta …
... and they had to off load their luggage. Flight to NZ good. Arrived and turned on cell phone to find a text from Andrew to say that Nathaniel James Finn had arrived while we were in flight.
We had to wait for an hour for my luggage to come off the plane - Keith's came off in the usual time, but an announcement was made to apologise for the delay in unloading 4 pods of baggage!
The trip to Paraparaumu was good and Ian was waiting for us.

... weeks (or even 1) 'just relaxing'- I can do that at home. And now with a kid, 2 weeks is an eternity for him- more time than he'd want to be away elsewhere. 2 weeks involves getting into a whole new routine only to leave it again and adjust back.
I've done longer trips- 5 weeks around the USA driving and 3 weeks in Europe, but it just seems unreal now... would I ever pick 2 solid weeks to go somewhere again anytime soon?
... thumb and the third finger. By catching the squirrel in this manner its mouth, tail, and legs do not get pressed and it can breathe freely. Now the tail hairs are wetted, and one hair plait after another is made and clipped off. After cutting off the requisite quantity of the hair, the squirrel is set ...

Following day Myself and Julie got up and read some Dr. Seuss. The four of us went for breakfast in the Elbow Room. A diner run by these two old queens who take your order and serve everything with a side of abuse. For some reason (!) the floor server Patrick loved me and we had the craic - never outside Kilbarrack have I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Shilo Inn & Suites - Salmon Creek Vancouver
Here we are again...at our favorite Host Hotel for the Body Building Comp.
Just want everyone to know...The Staff at this Hotel are GREAT...even more, they go that extra mile!
Love the cold water in the rooms! Nice touch!
How can you say Greater than Great! Well, this place certainly is!
We found the rooms to be large and clean, the pool to be crystal clear, the breakfast was good and the people who work there treated us like family.
What more could we want?
Long term guest says it's the place to stay
I have been staying at the Hazel Dell Shilo on a long term basis and I have had the opportunity to see the staff in action. I find them to be extremely helpful and the atmosphere very friendly. They have a pool with a 7 foot deep end which is nice for the kids as well as the adults. You don't have to stoop down to get your head wet. They also have a sauna and a steam room, both are very enjoyable. The hotel isn't the newest but it is well maintained and the maintenance staff are very attentive. There are several fast food resturants nearby and a sitdown steak house adjacent to the hotel. There is a Safeway and other stores within walking distance. Fred Meyers is just down the road on 134th St. They are very competitive with their rates and by their occupancy I would say many others agree with me that this is a great place to stay while passing through or for a longer stay. It has great access to I5 and I205. And did I mention the breakfast beyond just cereal, oatmeal, toast, and pastries now includes biscuits and gravy?
Yes, I am somewhat biased, I stayed at other hotels in the area and settled in at the Shilo Inn at Hazel Dell. It is the place to stay.
What a PLACE!
This may not be a new motel, but let me tell you, this place is GREAT!
The rooms are large and clean. The pool is awesome...nice and deep! You just don't find deep pools anymore! The front desk staff are WONDERFUL, very accomodating and helpful. We even got to meet the manager. She is quite a lady.
This was my first trip to Vancouver, WA to help some friends move. We will certainly be back.
I was very pleased with my stay. All the staff was very friendly, and more than helpful. I would definately recommend this location to all my friends.
Very friendly and helpful service. Being new to the area, the receptionist, was very helpful about directing me to local family attractions.
Wonderful place to stay
The Shilo was very clean and neat. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great everything was fresh and looked very nice. The location is great, close to restaurants and stores. The indoor pool is one of the deepest we have found. The only negative is the need of new carpeting in the hallways.
I booked my families reservation based on the 2 previous positive reviews of this hotel. So we were surprised to be placed in a SMOKING room..when we requested NON-Smoking. Tried to get moved to another but nothing was available. Steam and Sauna rooms were out of order. And finally, the hotel is situated in between a grill/bar and a Taco Bell, so while you're trying to air out your smoky room by opening the windows... you're kept awake by the local teen population who hang out all night in the parking lots of these joints:honking horns, racing engines,squealing tires and conversing until 5 am.
My entire family woke up feeling like we hadn't slept a wink.
I imagine the other buildings are more favorable, but verify that you are getting the room you requested PRIOR to arrival. We witnessed two other families who unloaded their bags from their car, entered the building, and walked out within minutes only to load their bags back into their car, complain to the front desk, and go elsewhere.
Better than expected
Stayed there once and was surprised by the friendly staff and the very calm neighborhood.
During the next trip, I stayed at the Portland Marriott which was incredibly noisy, 3 times as expensive and not that nice. Also I had to pay $21 for 24 hours parking.
The Shillo Inn is now my place of stay during my visits to Vancouver, WA. It's perfect for a business stay. It's walking distance from the great Fort Vancouver Officer Houses park (great for jogging) and just next to the I5 (without its nuisance).
Great place to stay in Vancouver Wa.
This is a great place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. A great pool, steam room and sauna. Good freeway access and reasonably close places to eat at.
