Beautiful hotel, big room and very confortable beds. Thebbreakfast is also great. Very nice and clean room. Quiet and great location, close to everything. Will stay there again.The people at the front desk were not really friendly and had to wait a while to get our room ready but besides that it is a great place to stay .

It's always a pleasure to return to the Silver Cloud Inn. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay the best it can possible be. I only wish we would have had more time to stay longer! John at the front desk made sure everything was just as we had requested before we even arrived.

There are a few features that make this seem better than your average motel. Staff is unusually friendly and accommodating (we needed to fax some pages and there was never a hesitation or charge). They offer free and flexible shuttles within 3 miles which worked out great since I have family nearby. Breakfasts are full and average. Wish the pool... More

Clean rooms, quiet, lots of free parking, convenient location right near University Village and down the street from the University of Washington sports venues. Free full breakfast. Free shuttle to nearby areas. Not luxurious by any means, but good, clean, quiet accommodations, with plenty of eating options nearby.

I spent a week at the Silver Cloud. My husband is in a wheelchair and there was, unlike most places, plenty of accessible (free!) parking. It was in a convenient location, easy to get in and out of. It felt over-priced, but I imagine that was a combination of Seattle and that we were near the university during graduation time.... More

Great staff, clean rooms, centrally located, plenty of parking. If you get a room toward the back of the hotel the internet will not work well, and you will be continually frustrated. If the internet is not important to you..then it won't matter. Very nice full breakfast every morning as well. I would have given it five stars had it... More

This hotel is in a good location near the University of Washington, and right next to the University Village Mall. The hotel staff was super friendly, the hotel was clean and quiet, and there was a breakfast included. While there were many positives to staying here, I feel it was overpriced for the type of hotel. The breakfast was mediocre,... More

Found this gem of a hotel which has ample parking, close to university mall for food and other items and 2 king sized beds in each room. Pretty decent hotel if all... More

Very friendly front desk staff. Nice hotel in great neighborhood. Excellent breakfast. Rooms are up to date and very relaxing environment. Quiet and comfortable. If you are in the university area this is a nice place to stay. Convenient shuttle available too.
