Was woken up two times to a couple screamimg profanity at one another. Hotel staff said they could not do anything about it. Asked for a refund for 2nd night, they refused. Left and stayed at a hotel I felt safe at. Please do not stay at this hotel.

You walk into the room and imediately feel dirty. It's so sparten, worn, and old. And it's not that you see filth everywhere, but it's the kind of room where you don't want to take your clothes off or use the shower. The shower curtain was comical in that it was 2 pieces and opened in the middle like curtains.... More

She had said there was a change in policy. I feel she discriminated against me and my boyfriend. Their rooms are worth even 20 bucks a night. Only 5 channels on their broke down tv's. They happen to be in a high crime area where I witnessed a hooker catching a beat down. Their rooms are not clean to public... More

Andrea C, You must have photo identification of yourself to stay at our inn. You did not have any legal identification. Therefore we could not let you stay at the inn. Manager Tim C More

I stayed there 4 nights early October. I was looking for something cheap and not far from the airport as I was leaving early. The first room I visited did not have a microwave but was nicer. The second one had a microwave (which I needed), two beds (which I did not need) and was more run down. The window... More

Not exactly deluxe, by any stretch, but it was the cheapest airport hotel in Seattle. Cleaner than I expected. The blanket and bedspread were hideous, but I just brush them away anyway. Friendly staff. Good shuttle service. I'd stay here again when I need a quick overnight. There's a great Thai restaurant next door called the Emerald.

Please I beg you people, don"t stay here. No words will begin to describe how disgusting this place is. I was tempted to camp outside. The room was not cleaned, there was pubic hair on the bed. We where not able to get a new room as we where told there was non available. Just dont stay here, period!

This place isn't something you'd stay in more than one night, really. If you just need a place to sleep and shower, it does the trick. They have been pretty accommodating when asked to give us two rooms next to one another on the ground floor.

The motel was handy to the airport, too handy when trying to sleep for an early flight out. The planes flew right over the motel until late. Other bad thing was the shuttle van parked in front of our room so we heard all the doors slamming from loading of people and bags, plus the van starting. Also when they... More
