We ended up with one extra night in Seattle and had a rented car so free parking was a must. This is in the Fremont neighborhood and half the price of the other place we stayed in Capitol Hill. The room was spacious and spotless, with a a view of downtown but nothing else so we could leave the curtains... More

-It was more expensive than led to believe in a phone call. -Far from the airport but not far from the pier for cruise. -A lot of noise from traffic. -No shuttle service. -No breakfast. +Internet worked well. +Benefit of early check-in.

This was one of the least expensive hotels in Seattle in early Sept 2015. We were headed ays we'd be gone. SO we contacted this motel and found parking for $5/night and only a $20 taxi ride back to cruise ship. Upon return, the owner could not seem to remember me or the price he'd quoted. New price was $10... More

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...

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

We spent entire day roaming the streets of Seattle or... More
