We stayed here for 2 weekday nights while visiting Seattle. The room and bathroom was very clean. The beds were comfy and the free breakfast buffet was very good. The breakfast buffet had pancakes, oatmeal, cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, toast, pastries, english muffin, coffee, and tea. I might have missed a few items, but it's all very good for...

I was traveling with family through Seattle and happened upon the Holiday Inn Express at Lynnwood. The front desk clerks were friendly and very welcoming and we were checked into our rooms within a minute of our arrival. The atmosphere was lovely and our room was excellent.

We stay at HI Express a lot with a dog. This one was just OK. Rooms were smaller than most HI Express. Difficult to find space to walk (with dog). It does have a hot tub, and staff is friendly. Spaghetti Factory is right next door.

Dear Cleander, Thank you for leaving us this valuable review. I am sorry you didn't find our rooms to be spacious enough. We do have our suites, which are quite a bit larger than our standard rooms and even come with a couch and small table, so that might better fit your needs for next time. I do hope your... More

Stayed one night to attend baseball game in Seattle. Started off great by getting an early check- in. Super friendly young lady checked us in. Very sweet and patient. Nice very clean room.

We arrived at the Holiday Inn Express after a long road trip and were looking forward to their fresh home baked chocolate chip cookies and the usual "manager's happy hour" which used to occur in the breakfast room mid-week at 5:00 pm. Needless to say, we were disappointed to learn that the cookies would not be available until later in... More

Stayed here overnight for a two-day exam nearby. Conveniently located to eateries in the mall next door. Friendly staff. Decent breakfast which includes some hot items like scrambled eggs. Good place to spend the night if you're traveling up or down I-5.

Stayed here several times while shopping in the area. Very dependable, usually well priced, and the staff do a great job of making your stay enjoyable. They could use a little more imagination on the breakfast but that is a minor thing. Real utensils, and real plates like some of the other HIE's would be a nice addition.

We had stayed there for one night only on our way to Portland. The hotel was very closed to Alder wood shopping mall and around lots of eateries and shops and a spread of accommodations to suit every budget. The hotel has been recently renovated and the facelift is obvious. It also has a pool located on the ground level... More
