Shelley's breakfasts are delicious, our room was most attractive and comfortable and all the guests we have met are delightful. This is near our daughters home I'm a quiet neighborhood. The zoo, Green Lake, Freemont and Ballard are close by and downtown is only about a ten minute drive.

My experience at the 9 Cranes Inn was splendid! Our hostess, Shelley, greeted us warmly and her hospitality continued throughout our stay. Each of our rooms had a most welcoming touch…very comfortable beds, soft linens (sheets are awesome!), warm lighting and very clean! The bathroom sparkled as well! And the heated tile flooring was a real treat!! Shelley thought of... More

The experience of staying at 9 Cranes Inn is something that I shall always be thankful for, and which, I wish, people could get to experience. Shelley is the most gracious host, as many have shared. She thinks of every single detail any traveller could ask for. I have travelled a lot and can be picky, but she certainly anticipated... More

My husband and I had a delightful time in the most comfortable 9 Cranes Inn. Our room was spacious and well appointed with a beautiful updated and spotless bathroom. Shelley is a most gracious host and very informative with surrounding locations and information. My husband is a runner and she gave him running routes as well! We stayed for 3... More

Our daughters live in Seattle. We had been looking for a ‘home away from home’ when we visit them, and were delighted to discover 9 Cranes Inn. The location couldn’t be better or more convenient to shopping and dining in Phinney, Ballard, and Fremont. Woodland Park and the Zoo (and the world’s best sour cherry pie) are just a few... More

Innkeeper Shelley is an expert in B&B, anticipating needs and flexible to accommodate. The 9 Cranes is homey and friendly, yet privacy is preserved. Everything was sparkling clean and breakfast a gourmet treat--one day savory, the next day sweet. We had the Woodland Park room on the main floor with its private, locked hallway and found it cozy and romantic.... More

Disclosure: I am a friend of the proprietor. My wife and I finally got to go to Seattle when 9 Cranes Inn had vacancies. We went there as part of an extended road trip across the US. I've known both the proprietor and her husband for years, and I had been looking forward to staying there to see what all... More

I have stayed in many places in Seattle over the past 15 years and this B&B is the best so far! The home is lovely, food great and Shelley is a great host! It is also very convenient to good restaurants and very near the zoo. We will definitely return in the future.

Fantastic B&B located in a quiet neighborhood in Phinney Ridge. We’ve traveled to Seattle a couple of times to visit our daughter and typically stay near the University. This trip decided to stay closer to her at the 9Cranes Inn and couldn’t have been happier. The Inn is situated just off Phinney Avenue within easy walking distance of a number... More

I never write reviews but I had to write one about 9 Cranes Inn. I found it online and am so glad I did! This B&B is just awesome! It's a Craftsman style house that is spotless, comfortable and and the decorating is very well done. Shelley is so hospitable and we felt right at home. The food was delicious!... More
