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

We stayed one night on the evening of a Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos pre-season game. Clean, but outdated and a little too basic, it met our needs for the night. $35 cab ride to the game (Hawk's Nest Pub first) and the same coming home made taking the car unnecessary - parking anywhere near the game is $40. It... More

We needed a lower cost room close to where our interests were, this was 5min away and no construction going on to cause traffic delays. It was very quiet and very clean. Sure the furniture is a little out dated and older but I thought it was clean and comfortable. If you are wanting top notch furniture décor, and a... More

Certainly not a four star. But good location and adequate accommodations. Would recommend if concerned about budget over fancy bath products and pillow top beds. Fairly quiet on a Thursday night. Surrounding area has some bars and restaurants within walking distance.

It was an ok stay, inexpensive and had a great location in Seattle. People at the front desk were very friendly and offered many suggestions from what you need to see to where the best dinner is served at. Great that they have wireless internet (a must for me). The down side was the room was a little small and... More

At first I thought this place was going to be ok. It is old and needs some updating, but otherwise seemed fine. I didn't see any of the cleanliness issues in my room, but the couch was really kind of iffy -- old, velour-type fabric that had definitely seen better days. Had no trouble with noise but it was a...

I booked this hotel the night before my trip. The man on the phone was very friendly, great personality, and professional. So my first impression was good which was helped with great pictures on the internet. My boyfriend and I stayed there for three nights and were impressed by the customer service, and cleanliness. The only thing we didn't like... More

This motel saved us a lot of money and both the staff and the location were really great. The staff helped us with directions and even let us leave our luggage at the reception while we were gone during the day before we went to the airport. The location is pretty good - I have read some bad reviews -... More
