If you find yourself in West Seattle, I highly recommend this quaint motor lodge that's been updated modern. The price is right, centrally located and convenient, and a clean place to stay. You won't be disappointed~

We reserved two nights based on the photos we saw online. When we drove up, we were disgusted by the seediness of the neighborhood. And the "hotel" basically looked like a motel 6 with a new paint job. Fortunately, when we pushed, we got our money back but not before the manager hung up on me!

We stayed here as everything more centrally located was way too expensive. This place is a $20 (inc tip) cab ride from the centre of Seattle. The staff are super friendly and helpful (as is everyone in Seattle it seems). It's clean and relatively comfortable. The pillows are a bit thin and flimsy (bolstered by a folded tshirt - was...

...that is, having to sacrifice light for privacy in a classic American drive-up motel room. Secondly, the AC noise vs security threat of opening a large waist- height window. But, beyond these two minor points, all else is fantastic. Exceptional cleanliness, great service (Jamie at check-in and another really cordial and efficient young woman at check-out), good coffee, adequate breakfast,... More

We loved staying at The Grove for two nights before our conference started! The pleasant decor, close proximity to a fun area with great restaurants and the best price around makes it a wonderful choice for savvy travelers! The room was very clean with nice linens, and the staff members we met were very nice. Be sure and check out... More

Then when we checked in which was this past Thursday ,I had the pleasure of meeting her. My husband again found her very helpful, especially about getting around,which was pretty easy sine the hotel is... More

Love the 60's motel vibe. Had a great modern room, with fridge, free parking, and a great included breakfast each morning. Easy check in and out. Close to public transportation. We had a car and it was an easy drive over the bridge to visit Seattle attractions for a day, then drive back to the peace and quite of W.... More

The rooms at the Grove are very clean and well appointed. The staff at the Grove were very accomodating & helpful. The breakfast they offered had a very nice variety . We would definitely come back here again.

We booked two rooms in the hotel on Aug26 for one night. I woke up in the middle of the night with itchiness around my left arm. I found out it was bed bugs, they were crawling all over my bed. We complained at the front desk and we're moved to another room but not before I was bitten more... More

First of all I want to apologize for your having to stay in a room that had bedbugs. If we had know it prior to your visit, it would have been taken out of order to deal with the problem. Unfortunately, bedbugs have become a large scale problem for all types of hotels including the most upscale properties to the... More

The best thing about this hotel was the staff. They were all very friendly and went out of their way to answer all of my questions. The hotel was in a good location. I enjoyed the walk up to California Avenue for shopping and eating. The hotel is right on a bus-line and I saw the bus go by numerous... More

We strive to make each guest feel at home and to offer, and suggest things for them to do and see. I am very glad you enjoyed your stay... More
