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

Quiet neighborhood effects comfry sleeping. No smoking rooms. Breakfast pretty enough, not rich but basic. Kind and helpful stuff.

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

We selected The Grove because of it's location to a wedding we were attending in West Seattle as well as the fact it was within our budget. We were very pleased with our stay. The staff at check in were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The room was spotless and they had honored our request of not being placed... More

Checked in without doing any research, just tired and needed a place to stay. The location was good being within walking distance to W Seattle's many restaurants and pubs. We paid a $35 pet fee and were assigned a ground level room. The room's door was right behind the motel dumpster and the room's window looked into the alley onto... More

Great value for Seattle area. Comfortable bed and no problem with noise as we turned on the fan for 'white noise.' Free parking and decent free breakfast. Very clean. We will return for another visit!

I spent a week in West Seattle to be close to my daughter and son-in-law. The room was very clean and was cleaned every day. The staff answered all my questions, very friendly people. The C bus is right down the street if you want to go to downtown Seattle. I would highly recommend the Grove.

This is an older hotel with an extensive remodel. Nothing really fancy but Friendly, knowledgeable staff. I stayed 5 nights at the end of March and didn't have any regrets. This may be the only choice for West Seattle. The Continental breakfast was good from 6-10 am. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again
