We had a wonderful stay at the Silver Cloud Inn-University. The rooms are roomy and clean. Service is perfect. The free breakfast is amazing, everything you could want for breakfast and wonderful coffee! Tuesday evenings they have a happy hour spread of beer, wine and cheese and crackers, etc. Running along the side of the hotel is a biking, running... More

Our family recently spent a long weekend up in Seattle to attend a wedding. We chose the Silver Cloud because it was so close to the wedding venue and reception. While staying there, we discovered so many more wonderful attributes about this hotel. First, there is no charge for parking your car! Our family of three had a king-size suite,... More

Super pleased to find this hotel. A great value for the area with all the amenities we were looking for. Breakfast was lovely with a huge selection and quality food. The pool and hot tub were perfect for our toddler and us to have some fun at the end of the day. Location is convenient to stores and restaurants. Will... More

The size of the rooms is good however the beds are old and bouncy like a trampoline. I was up all night because every time my husband moved I bounced. It was a miserable night. The swimming pool is freezing and the hot tub was so foamy we were totally grossed out. I wish we had stayed somewhere else.

We certainly apologize these guests were disappointed with their last stay with us. While all of our beds throughout our company are custom made and we receive many requests by our guests on how they can be purchased for private residences, we certainly understand that bedding preferences can vary from individual to individual. Upon request, we will gladly insert a... More

Silver Cloud Inn is an average hotel in general, but probably it is the best accommodation in the university district. The building is a bit old, the lobby/reception areas are too humble and the rooms are just OK. The breakfast is too basic for the rate you may pay here. But this is the way it is; welcome to Seattle.... More

While very pleased that this guest found us to be the best hotel amongst many in our area, it is our goal to provide excellent accommodations, service, and value when compared to anywhere in the country. We provide free parking and Wi-Fi, a courtesy shuttle providing transportation anywhere within a three mile radius, a hot and cold item complimentary breakfast... More

My daughter and I stayed here for three nights while my son was at Seattle Children's Hospital. The hotel is very close, just a mile or so away so it was very convenient. Nice hotel, rooms were very clean and updated. Beds were comfy as well. Pool is indoor, heated and saltwater. Free breakfast was good, eggs, sausage, bagels, pastries,... More

Great hotel if you are in the University District or very close to University Village. Nice, big clean rooms, good breakfast with hot link sausage, scrambled eggs, make-your-own fresh waffles, fruit, juice, yogurts, pastries, bread/toast, muffins, bagels, skim & 2% milk, Seattle's Best Coffee, ample parking, and good value for the market. Didn't use the pool or exercise rooms, but... More

Very traditional motel look. Nothing fancy, nothing out of the ordinary, just a clean place to sleep. The bathrooms are tiny but also super clean. The TV is massive for such a small room, not the most modern, yet great for us to like to watch TV. Overall, it was a very positive experience. Nice personel,friendly faces, and great access...

Excellent hotel, close to many places of interests, convenient & very clean! Staff was very helpful & friendly! The pool was a great play space for my kids. We had a slumber birthday party for my 8 year old & he Loved it!! Breakfast was delicious & plentiful with many different choices. Great for multiple kids!
