You REALLY don't wanna stay here. There were blood stains on the matress and cigarette burns on the bedding. There are people residing in this dump. It doesn't look bad from the road but step inside to experience regret. It was late. I couldn't find a room anywhere and they had rooms. Big mistake. Sleeping on a bench in the... More

Truly the worst hotel experience ever. Got in late to Sea Tac. Busy weekend, had trouble finding a room. Used a reputable online booking company, how can they represent this place. Filthy, mouldy, smelly. Too tired to turn away, wish we'd slept in the car! Opened the fridge, the smell was nauseating. Our bedclothes smelt of smoke this morning, in... More

The microwave didn't work, not jet tubs as claimed, no pool as pictures. Rooms was filthy I has two kids and I was so upset. Carpets are... More

This was by far the dirtiest place u have ever stayed. The staff were rude and unhelpful in any way. All they could say to us was that the conditions of the room were not their fault and if we didn't like it we could go somewhere else at midnight. The lights in the room didn't work. Cigarette burns on... More

We booked this hotel on the Internet. This place stunk and was very dirty. We stayed only long enough to get accommodation elsewhere for the night which was approx 1 hour. Lots of people wandering around, didn't know whether they were guests or just locals.. We did not feel safe at all, could not wait to get out of the... More

I stayed here before an early flight. Room was dirty & stinky. I was prepared to forfeit the $100 I had already paid but could not find another hotel, everything was booked. I should've stayed in my car. Please don't stay here.

My travelling companions and I were going to Seattle for a fun weekend of city exploration. We had booked at a different hotel, but got in too late and lost our room. The guy recommended Garden Suites, whom he called and told us that the lady was "quite mean" on the phone. My buddy called her as well, and booked... More

Good place to sleep if you're coming in late to get to the aiport. You get what you pay for, but the bed was comfortable and the staff was friendly.

It was FILTHY! The lock was busted off the door as if it had been kicked in. The screen on our first floor room was bent and jammed in the window-clearly it had been yanked out. Smelled of smoke. Burn marks on toilet, bath tub, counter tops, even the headboard. It is a flop house. But you get what you... More
