Interaction with Guests

We respond to our guests' need for interaction. If they want to engage, we're happy to talk. But if guests want to be left alone, we're okay with that, too. We live in the basement so we’re always available if needed.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is on the edge of downtown and close to the capitol campus. There are a lot of office buildings springing up all around us, but our row of residential housing hugs this main artery. You can easily walk to many interesting places.

Getting Around

Our Intercity Transit Routes 94 (best) and 64 swing by to take you to the transit station for more connections. One block away, you can catch the DASH, a free bus that goes up & down the main drag from the Capitol to the Farmer's Market. Two buses enroute to Tacoma go past our corner, the 603 and the 612. To bus to and from Seattle, check Sound Transit's schedule for connecting with Tacoma. If you take the train to Olympia, bring your bike. There are two awesome bike trails between us and the train station.

Other Things to Note

Check in time is 4pm - 6pm unless you make other advance arangements.
The house is unlocked during check in and locked during all other hours of the day. We prepare the house for new guests from 1pm- 4pm and ask that guests find things to do outside the Inn between those hours. Guests have keys so they can access their rooms during this time, but no visitors or new guests are allowed during these hours. Guests can stay up to two weeks.

Kitchen Use - The kitchen is available for lunch use between 11am to 1pm. Kitchen access for dinner is 5pm to 9pm. Everyone appreciates it when you immediately clean up after yourself in the kitchen.

Bathroom Sharing - Your time in the bathroom should be as enjoyable as the rest of your visit. Please take maximum enjoyment with minimal time, if you suspect others may be waiting for their turn. We provide mirrors and hair dryers in all the rooms where additional primping can take place. Fresh towels are in the shelves near the bathroom, used towels go into hampers after use. Leave the bathroom better than you found it each time.

Be Tidy - please use the drawers and closets provided for you to store your things. Leave the space better than you found it each time.Guests are responsible for securing their personal items. Personal items left outside of your bunk area will be put away by staff.

Be Cool - we should never see any illegal drugs or alcohol abuse at Ground Inn. Marijuana smoking is permitted, according to Washington State law, but take it outside.
