We arrived late at night & it was hard to find as the sign was unlit. Reception was only so so. Given a small room that was showing it's age but has had some tidying up. Had trouble opening the door as the porch was also unlit. Small 14" TV, no drink facilities in the room & coffee available in... More

We knew the Kings Inn is a basic motel and we got exactly what we expected: a clean room, good bed and excellent shower, and free parking. Wifi worked well. The location is excellent about half-way between downtown Seattle and the Space Needle: we could walk everywhere. The Kings Inn charged less than half of what other downtown hotels asked... More

I arrived after a long day to discover my room on the third floor, elevator not working and everyone is able to look into your room when they walk past. Website says this place has been upgraded. Bathroom says otherwise.

Great down town location on 5th Ave near Pike Market, Monorail Station, bars and restaurants and majors shops. Clean, friendly service. Check in very slick. Fridge, good WiFi, microwave were unexpected extras. Very comfortable, would definitely stay again. Colin has left the building.

okay, so I paid $120 - parking is 'free' - this really means that since the Westin charges $35 a night for parking a block away, it's really ONLY a $85 room with $35 for parking... so that's all you get... it's clean... it's functional... I had enough towels... (but no drinking cups/glasses)... it's NOISY as folks smoke outside in... More

I read a lot of good and a lot of bad about this hotel before we booked a room, It was very close to the Russian Consulate where we needed to go and to walk to Pike's place. Yes it is dated, and some of the rooms were outdated, but others were redone. Some of the room's smelled like previous... More

I've stayed here several times over the years and what used to be decent value for the money (read budget), has steadily deteriorated every year. I'm thinking this place is just putting in time before being sold for redevelopment. Not even a coffee maker in the room anymore and the coffee in the lobby was completely substandard by any stretch... More

As I wrote location is great, there are many bus routes around and it's close to restaurants and city center. The bed was ok, it didn't smell at least. Bathroom was old and dirty and elevator smelled like someone died there and wasn't removed from there for a long time. I didn't hear noise from monorail, but if you are... More

We came here in the summer to attend the On the Run concert. We wanted to stay downtown and sought out this inn because it was reasonably priced with free parking. The rooms were ok, bathroom was dated. The furniture was older but really we weren't expecting anything fancy. The location is great, we walked everywhere and easily got to... More

It's walking distance from many Seattle attractions. It's nothing special... the room was very small and basic but it was definately worth it. I don't think that there's anywhere else to stay for only $80 a night.
