We were pleasantly surprised with The Grove, the beds were comfortable and the unit was clean and modern, the breakfast was also great value. On the downside we booked two rooms on their website for our family of five however on arrival were only given one, this was quickly rectified however the rooms were on opposite sides of the complex....

From the outside, this looks like a motel from decades past. Inside it is thoroughly updated. Our room was sparkling clean and fresh. Good wifi, TV, modern bathroom, nice chair and table. The breakfast fare included was above average for selection of food and drink, the service attentive and friendly. The clientele we experienced were diverse, and quiet. Check in... More

This is a former motel that has been upgraded about as far as possible. Pluses are comfortable beds with nice sheets, free parking, free breakfasts, very reasonable price, and walking distance to West Seattle restaurants and bars. A very big plus was the staff who were without exception friendly, accommodating and professional. It wasn't a big deal for my son... More

We needed a hotel for our first night in West Seattle and made a reservation at The Grove through their website. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, quietness, and comfort of the room....all for a very fair price. I would like to especially complement Logan, the front desk manager, for... More

We googled hotels in West Seattle and happened upon the Grove. Logan was awesome and friendly and really acted like he appreciated our business. We stayed in the last room available with bunk beds. Perfect for my son and myself. Rooms were modern and clean. It was a bit noisy due to the traffic. Breakfast was good and the room... More

The first night wasn't bad. Never mind that this old, travel motel, rent by the hour place has stairs we didn't know about. After a sticky check-in the manager did finally move us to a ground floor room. Simple, very clean, and conveniently located in a part of the city with little to no other accommodation options, The Grove isn't... More

I'm not quite sure what your expectations were for our little motor inn. I'm sorry it was not what you were looking for as a lodging choice while in the area.. First, I want to clarify that we are not a "rent by the hour" property and am insulted by that comment. Second, we are an extremely busy property and... More

I haven't had the pleasure of staying in a motel recently, so this was a nice change of pace. The room is small, to be sure, and doesn't offer a ton of room for two people. The confines were super clean, as you'd expect from a nice neighborhood like this. Its in good striking distance to the greater Seattle metro... More
