This motel was everything it should be. It had a clean and comfy bed. Bathroom was clean. Free wi-fi (which was a bit shaky but is in the process of being updated according to the management) but it worked enough for my needs. I found the staff to be extremely friendly. The price was right at $75.00 and no extra... More

One of those you-get-what-you-pay-for kind of places. Grimy as others described, but if you're not picky and you want cheap, it's fine. Location is lovely, we didn't need to drive anywhere - close to Fremont and buses that will take you out of the neighbourhood. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast (watered-down coffee, cheapo pre-packaged muffins) is terrible, bring... More

I chose this motel because it was cheap and as a Nirvana fan I was quite intrigued by it. I checked in after a long flight and I hadn't been sleeping for 24 hrs, and that's the only reason why I managed to sleep a few hours that night. The guy at front desk was nice, Check in was quick,... More

I stumbled onto the Marco Polo while trying to find a hotel/motel near Seattle that did not require half a months pay for a one night stay. The Marco Polo was clean, easy to access, the front desk fella was extraordinarily helpful and gave me a great deal, since I did not need two beds, but it was the only... More

Older motel located in Fremont area of Seattle. Easy to get to from downtown Seattle. Hotel to downtown Seattle took less than 10 minutes. 7-11 convenience store two blocks away if you need anything. Pedestrian overpass near hotel and you could use it to walk 6 blocks to see Fremont statues and artwork. Bonus was a picnic table with umbrella... More

The motel is close to almost everything that you wish to visit in seattle. (Approx 15 mins to space needle and 5 mins to beth's cafe). The room is big enough for 5 guests and its not expensive at all... basic amenities are available and the muffins were good. Overall experience was average. I would love to stay there if... More

We needed a cheap place to base ourselves while in Seattle and this fit the bill. Yeah Jonathan is quirky but very friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to a market and buy food and bring it back to our room. Breakfast was basic but the coffee was good. My one complaint is that we had our door... More

I'll relate my experience with The Marco Polo and then you can form your own opinion. The motel itself is ok it's a basic place to hang your head. Johnathan at the desk is a quirky interesting character. The problem being is that you can be quirky and still competent , but not this guy. I bought tickets to go... More
