Cocusa Motel - Not Recommended

On our recent trip to washington we planned to
stay one night at the Cocusa Motel in Burlington.
It was reasonably priced and accepted dogs.

We really booked this room based on the internet
photos showing lots of grass and thought this
would be perfect as we were traveling with two

The motel is MUCH closer to busy streets than
the internet photos showed and on the corner of
a major freeway entrance. The photos don't
really give an accurate portrait. When you are at
the place it feels like a bad neighborhood in LA.

You can't see any grass from the outside,
apparently the grassy courtyard is only on the
inside. The woman in the office wasn't exactly
rude but when I asked, "You have a grassy area
right, because we have dogs and that's why we
booked this place" she answered "We do have a
grassy courtyard but absolutely no dogs are
allowed on the grass!" Heartless.

We were already very disheartened by the busy
location and appearance of the place - so the
No-Dog-Grass was the last straw for us and we
canceled our reservation. I didn't think about
taking a photo at the time but now I wish I
had. This place is not a good place for dogs
or families.
