This B & B was a great find in a lovely part of Seattle. We stayed for 6 nights and couldn't have been more delighted. Everything was super nice from the breakfasts to the bedding to the fixtures and window treatments. Stayed in the Fremont Room and would definitely make this inn a top spot to stay on our many...

We've stayed at 9 Cranes twice now, and plan to make it our Seattle standard. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. Shelley does a lovely job of being helpful and friendly without being intrusive. She puts a lot of thought into breakfast; we've eaten quite well while there. And, there are several good restaurants in the neighborhood.

This was a great find in a great location with unequaled hospitality. Highly recommended. The breakfasts were substantial and snacks plentiful. Lovely walks in the area and convenient location, although we did have a car in which we traveled in and out of town and to local sights. Maps of Seattle are available in the inn as well as interesting... More

Bathrooms and bedrooms are ultra clean. Shelley knows the city inside and out and is always accommodating. She will pack a breakfast-to-go if you can't make the... More

My husband and I recently had a wonderful stay at the 9 Cranes Inn. We’ve stayed at many bed and breakfasts over the years, and this was by far our favorite B&B experience. The inn itself is lovely and very tastefully decorated. We stayed in both the Phinney Ridge and Freemont rooms, and both rooms were very comfortable and stylishly... More

Our stay could not have been more wonderful! We stayed 3 days in the Woodland Park room. It had cool soothing green walls, high end furnishings and a gigantic closet for all of our stuff. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was beautiful. Excellent water pressure. Heated floors are a first for me, what a nice touch. I have... More

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and I cannot imagine how it could have been any better. Rooms were great, location great, food out of this world. But as is always the case it is great people making all of the above possible. Shelley and her staff are outstanding. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at the 9 Cranes Inn, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect, lots of space to stretch out after a long day of sight-seeing. I especially loved the bathroom, great shower and loved the decor. We would definitely stay at the 9 Cranes Inn again.

We have stayed in many excellent b&b's throughout the US but 9 Cranes Inn is 2nd to none! Staying there is great experience! It is like staying with family! The innkeeper and her staff pay attention to the details of providing comfort and great food. The rooms are large and spacious, well furnished, and very private. The location of the... More
