It's what you would expect from a motel. There is a bed, an old school TV, a shower and a fridge. The AC worked which was great. If you expect little soaps on your pillow and people greeting you at the door clearly this is not the place for you. However, if you need a cheap place to crash for... More

My girlfriend and I were on a budget and booking last minute. We booked this motel for a good price. We asked to move out reservation back by one day and stay one day later because we had to postpone our trip, they said they wouldn't do it, we had to go through the company we booked with. When we...

We were going on an Alaskan Cruise, arrived late, just needed a place to sleep which was fairly close to the Cruise Port. Rates are very reasonable...our room was clean and we were on our way the next morning. Found the staff friendly and helpful. No this isn't a luxury hotel, its a basic motel, but I didn't find it...

This place got good reviews so I went with it. It was cheap and I now know why. We checked in and it smelled old and dated in the office. We went to our rooms and the result was the same. My daughter found a large hair on her pillow. We were out of there. The manager did give us... More

Our door did not close completely however it did manage to lock. Shower tub would fill as you shower, up to your ankles. Tub floor was grimy and as it filled with water because the drain was clogged, past occupiers hair floated around. Just wasn't clean in any way. They double booked us and we had people try to break... More

PROS: close to Seattle Zoo, close to hwy 99, 7-10 min drive to Seattle Downtown (if no traffic), low-low prices, free coffee and muffin in the morning, friendly staff CONS: quite old, needs a number updates, close to hwy 99 (could be noisy) Overall impression: worth the price we paid. We spent entire day roaming the streets of Seattle or... More

Not any more than OK. We stayed there because we could leave our car for a week for only $5 a day while we cruised from the port 15 minutes away. No luxury here. Bring a GPS to find this place. Not any place to eat close by either.

We made a mistake booking our hostel,and had to find lodging within walking distance (and all our luggage.) The manager had only one room available that was being converted to nonsmoking, but still smelled. After agreeing on $100.00, he said he didn't feel right about it, and lowered it to 90.00 for us! :D
