The room was your basic bed tv and bathroom and was super inexpensive. I hate paying an arm and a leg for a hotel room we literally just sleep in so this honestly was perfect. I went in having read bad reviews and was so happy when I saw for myself. The front desk guy and woman provided extra towels... More

The only reasonable thing about this place is the strange kindness of the gentlemen at the reception, everything else was bad. Dirty and smelly room. The bed sheets seemed to be fresh but the covers were full of strange hairs of different sizes and colours. The non smoking room smelled like cigarettes or something else. I am sorry to say... More

Eight of us stayed in two rooms on the long weekend for PAX Prime Expo. Great price at over half of what other places charged. Within 15 minutes of downtown. Cleanliness was ok, but the Motel is old, and shows it (Pop machine was out of order). The staff were friendly and accommodating, Since there were eight of us, I... More

Never in our life we had a chance to see such dirty place as this one. Booking.com did not reflect... More

I wouldn't recommend this motel to ANYONE. The rooms are not clean. The smoking room (room 9) is the grossest room I've ever stepped foot in. I found not only a bloody towel, but some needles (yes the kind you shoot up with, drugs) also. My family & I immediately complained about that & also how disgusting the room was.... More

We stayed at the Columbus Motor Inn in May 2013, while in Seattle for a cruise ship trip to Alaska. Free parking is provided at the motel. At first glance, it looks like any of dozens of local mom-and-pop style motels along Aurora Avenue North, a busy commercial street at the north end of Seattle. But it looks better in... More

Where to begin. I was looking for a place to stay for a night so my standards were not that high. I didn't want to pay over $100 for a room so I felt like this place would do. All I wanted was wifi, a bed, a clean room, and decent service. Oh boy was I going to be in... More

Hotel rooms are very old and out dated. There is a damp, wet smell to the room and not very inviting. It was clean but the old part made it look dirty..no bars within walking distance, still a 20 minute drive to the city. Wouldn't recommend it unless you had to or only staying a night passing through.

Room was clean and comfortable. Free wifi and room had fridge freezer so useful. Our room was shabby and needs updating but was clean which is the main thing! Went across the road to Vietnamese grill one night, I'd recommend the chicken noodle soup, yum!
