Our family of four spent three nights here, the first was the best sleep (maybe because we had just finished traveling for the last 20+ hours with very little sleep). The room was clean, although small. The bathroom was tiny. I could stand in the middle and touch all four walls with my arms outstretched. A continental breakfast was included... More

I stayed 4 nights at The Grove. The personnel were outstanding: very friendly and helpful, They always met me with a smile. The breakfast room and my room were impeccably clean. The rooms are very basic with furnishings and linens chosen with cleanliness in mind. There were no drawers, extra linen, extra furniture to catch dust, etc. I asked for... More

Nice remodel of an old hotel. Beds comfortable, good amenities. Great location to west Seattle and Downtown at an affordable price. Be aware the street noise will make you feel like Jake and Elwood attempting to sleep in Elwood's apartment. Seattle Buses shake the room closest to the street but on the bright side the Fire House is 2 blocks... More

From the outside this place could be mistaken for a dive motel - but it is actually a cute, retro place in a great neighborhood. We were visiting family in West Seattle, which is a fun and funky area, a short drive from from downtown Seattle. There is free parking and lots of fun shops and restaurants within walking distance... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in Dec, 2013 to attend a wedding in West Seattle. We stayed in one of the "inside" rooms on the 2nd floor, with 1 queen bed. Overall the room was on the small side.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Grove on TripAdvisor. I am sorry that we did not exceed your expectations in all aspects of your stay. We have already addressed the lighting issue by installing lamps in every unit that needed more. I do apologize about the shower curtain, the housekeeping staff is generally very good about getting... More

Very good location. Restaurants and shops within walking distance, a bit of a walk but pleasant and well worth it. The water taxi bus stop was right across the street from the hotel and a regular bus stop within 2 blocks either way of the hotel. The staff was very pleasant and very helpful in helping us to get around.... More

We stayed 10 days at The Grove when we helped our daughter and family move. They have a wonderful breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We could easily walk to the "main" street for groceries, restaurants, actually all of our needs. We would certainly stay here again.

Visited relatives in West Seattle recently and stayed at The Grove. This was the third time we've stayed there this year and again it was just what we needed and wanted. It's clean, comfortable, affordable, great location, nice continental breakfast, and warm, welcoming, and helpful staff. A fan in the bathroom would be a welcome addition, but besides that, well...

We have stayed at this little inn several times. It is clean, simple and has a most friendly staff! Had a request for more lighting and we had a lamp immediately. A great place in West Seattle! Simplicity and great basic lodging! West Seattle has wonderful restaurants and "small town feel."
