But I agree with the creepy part and a little smelly. There was a peculiar untouchable under one of the chairs in the entry.. I would not recommend this unless you're desperate, or thumbing along 405 in the area and have enough cash for a cheap room.

I arrived in Seattle and, not being familiar with the area, made a tentative reservation at 6 hotels including the Carlton Inn which also calls itself the "Totem Lake Hotel". Once I found out which hotel was closest to my destination, I called the others to cancel. (Within 4 hours of having made the reservation) They all told me that... More

My husband and I were visiting Seattle for the weekend to go to a Seahawks game. We made the mistake of looking for a place to stay the night before the game. Everywhere was fully booked so we stumbled upon the Carlton inn on Travelocity. Upon arrival, we quickly noticed we would be in for an adventure. The Carlton Inn... More

I would like to comment on the service I have received since my stay here at the Carlton Inn. New to the area I was not sure where to look for apartments or things to do. On my first night, I mentioned to one of the staff that I needed to look for somewhere to live, Leo Woods took it... More

I was concerned about staying here due to the negative reviews seen here. I had knee surgery nearby and had to stay for 6 days. The room the staff were all terrific. I told them they had horrible reviews online and they informed me that they had new ownership and positive changes were happening throughout the property. Again, staff was... More

Our reservations through Travelocity got messed up and when we arrived there was no reservation waiting for us. The clerks at the counter made several calls to Travelocity to find out what happened and made sure we were not being charged for the room through Travelocity and then upgraded us to a suite at no extra charge. I can't say... More

I was glad to find a room at the Carlton Inn, with good access to the freeway and local shopping and close to my daughter and son in law's apartment in the Kirkland area. The hotel's location at the end of a road and close to a small lake proved to be ideal for a quiet night's sleep and our... More

At first, I thought the hotel had a great location and staff friendly. The room is huge. However, after one night stay, the hair dryer did not work, the air conditioner blew warm air only, the carpet was horribly filthy with stains and cracker crumbs...not vacuumed properly. The bed had no bed pad on it, the sheets were not tucked... More
