McMenamins Olympic club pub, theater and hotel is right next to the Amtrak station in Centralia, Washington. The Olympic club is a fun place to hang out, take in a movie, sample some great beers and spend the night in a historic hotel.
A fun way to get there is to take the Amtrak Cascades – we took the train from Albany, OR to Centralia, Wa. McMenamins has a special deal for getting two train tickets for the price of one!
Take the train and return the same day, or stay late and return the following day. Two-for-one Amtrak vouchers are available at all McMenamins. See the Amtrak Schedule for complete train times. From Portland to Centralia, take the 8:30 a.m. or 12:15 p.m. train and return on the 7:11 p.m. train, or return the next day on the 9:11 a.m. or 1:06 p.m. train. From Seattle to Centralia, take the 9:30 a.m. or 11:25 a.m. train and return on the 7:46 p.m. train, or return the next day on the 10:01 a.m. or 1:46 p.m train.
