The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and I was able to check-in early. The manager was also friendly, which doesn't always happen when I stay in a hotel/motel. This location is not by the airport, which is sketchy and can appear to be unsafe. This location is near a neighborhood and I-5. There are... More

Since it was a Motel 6, I had low expectations. We were staying only the night. It was better than expected. We had late check in and we had no problems checking in. Since the hotel was located next to I-5, I was expecting to hear some traffic noise. I didn't hear any. The room was clean. The were 2... More

Check in was easy but was taken aback because I had to sign the back of the receipt acknowledging that I had read their "security notice" that Seatac Police would be called for any disturbances. As I was unpacking, it seemed like I was being "solicited" by another guest, asking if I needed/wanted any "conversation". Never had that sort of... More

A motel 6 property is by nature a tough review because Motel 6 occupies the budget sector. So obviously you're not going to see Ferrari's and Lotus, etc in the parking lot, nor are you going to have exotic spa sessions or dining options. If you are thinking about a Motel 6, it's because either you can't or don't want... More

First sign of trouble were the broken down cars in the parking lot that obviously hadn't moved for months. Next were the kids bicycles lying around the motel property. There were clearly a lot of "guests" that were living out of their rooms. I don't think I have ever seen so many different breads of Rottweilers in one location either.... More

Other than the fact a non-smoking room had a horrible cigarette smell, I was fairly pleased for a Motel 6 where room rates were rediculous on Summer weekend in the Seattle area. Freeway was close and a bit noisey, but close to the airport for a short stay to catch an early morning flight.

The room was sort of an emergency booking since we'd been booked at the Kings Inn, downtown Seattle, but it was a dive and we got our money back, booked this on line, and drove 18 miles to finally relax. The motel is relatively new, very clean room. If you don't mind almost no amenities and a TV that's 20... More

Considered the price paid this is not bad. Room was clean but we asked for a non-smoking room, this was not the case; the room had a clear cigarette smell. Shower was quite clean. We had the idea that some people use the hotel for long term stay.

We frequently come to Seattle for business and this unfortunately has been one of our lodgings. Do NOT recommend. It seems to be more for short-term housing for out-of-sorts people than for travelers and tourists. Feel the need to make sure the doors are really well locked at night, and bolt for our vehicle when we go to leave. You... More
