The staff here was friendly and helpful. Free parking, free wifi, free breakfast, and a shuttle to get you places if you'd like. My room was clean and I didn't get street noise since my room was toward the back of the hotel. The hotel is right next to University Village, which is a great outdoor shopping mall. It is... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and bot times were delightful. The room was comfortable and delightfully quiet and the complimentary breakfast was very good. We look forward to another visit.

We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn last week. One of us, the author, forgot to pack an item. We contacted the Inn and spoke with the G.M. "Steven" about the missing item. Actually it was two items which are now on their way back to us. We enjoyed our stay, the proximity to the University and University Village for... More

We stayed here only one night as we were returning home but were pleasantly surprised by the quiet location so near the bustling University District. We had a lovely suite with a great mattress. We used their free shuttle service the next day and also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. We will stay here again!

Very comfortable stay in an exceptionally clean room. Perfect location to the University Village which has many stores and restaurants to choose from. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The hotel is adjacent to the Burke-Gilman trail which is another plus! We would definitely stay here again.

I really like the location, right on Gilman-Burke bike trail, walking distance to UW, lots of restaurants, shops, coffee, and the Union Bay Natural Area. Room is comfortable, well set up, great big openable window, clean, solid appliances/fixtures. Would like recycling can in room, though I do appreciate the low-flow good shower head, and towel and linen replacement policy. Breakfast... More

We (a couple of young professionals) were visiting Seattle for the first time for a few nights and the price at this hotel was right. Our room was clean and comfortable, which is all we wanted really. For those who want to see Seattle proper, our advice would be to have a car. There is a shuttle at the hotel... More

Initially I would've rated this a 3. Drab room, view of a low rent apartment building, way out of the city. But the place has grown on me - the benefit of staying for a few nights. I stayed here with my college freshman who is starting at the University of Washington. I chose this hotel because it was the... More

Close to the University and a nice outdoor walking mall and a walking trail. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was welcoming. There is a handicapped lift for the pool. The hot tub was comfortably warm and soothing. Breakfast covered all the bases.

The staff was efficient and friendly. The hotel was clean and well situated with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The little gym was actually quite good. The breakfast was good, but very little for the gluten intolerant. We drove downtown in about 10 minutes.
