Free breakfast, easy walk to space needle and attractions, staff were nice and helpful with issues we had. Great water pressure, big baths, microwave and fridge but rooms are small and seemed dark. Elevator is extremely slow. Not many hotels have a pool in city cenyer so it was family friendly however it is super small. The price is great... More

I've stayed in this hotel about a year ago and liked it.

I lost my credit card the night before but had plenty of cash and access to more with my... More

We enjoyed a pleasant stay here for several days until we realized of few of my husbands baseball cards were missing. We were advised not to leave these in the car and they did not fit in the hotel safe. Therefore, we had no choice but the room. He is extremely meticulous and we had several eye witnesses to the...

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 7 month old son. It was a perfect location to walk from to most all places we wanted to visit. There is a Walgreen a block away and many restaurants. The space needle is a short 5 minute walk along with several museums and the monorail. You really couldn't... More

We are traveling with a group of students, high school band and orchestra good kids. They were in the pool and asked to quiet down so they did...the kids even were quieting themselves because they didn't want to get 'kicked out' however management did it anyway. When we took it up with the hotel manager today they said the pool... More

We stayed here several times on visits to Seattle, but our most recent stay was in January 2014. We were attending the Justin Timberlake concert at Key Arena and didn't want to deal with the expensive parking at the venue so chose this hotel as it was within walking distance. The rooms are simple but clean and one of the... More

A very decent hotel, neat and clean. Ideal for short visits to Seattle, situated close to downtown and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast and internet services are managed extremely well. A must consider hotel for business and leisure visits.

My young son and I specifically travelled to Seattle to enjoy the Seahawks Parade. The front desk staff offered us parking for our vehicle well past the check out time to accommodate for our need to stay parked until well after the parade finished.
