We chose this property because it was moderately priced and was very close to, but not in Downtown Seattle. Our room was a noisier one with 2 queen beds facing out to Alaska St. The room itself was clean and had some very nice touches. Someone had considered design when placing the mini-fridge in a "closet" space next to the... More

We stayed at the Grove as it was close to the West Seattle Stadium and to the Vashon Ferry. Price was reasonable - certainly compared to other Seattle accomodation. Clean and comfortable. Very good continental breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Would return.

We visited family in West Seattle and the Grove was very conveniently located and moderately priced. The room was clean and comfortable and they provided a substantial continental breakfast. I definitely plan to return on my next Seattle visit.

So surprised! VERY CLEAN, close to many Seattle attractions, easy to find, basic breakfast included (who needs dry scrambled eggs and greasy bacon), FREE PARKING, and price cannot be matched. Excellent remodel, everything new.

Nice and clean, limited breakfast menu (cereals, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs, pastries, bananas and fruit salad, coffee & decaf, juices). We got a handicapped accessible room and I appreciated the grab bars. Within walking distance of the shopping district. The staff was helpful (we needed help adjusting the tv). Great value for the money! West Seattle is a great neighborhood... More

Gosh, if you are looking for a motel/hotel in West Seattle, look no further! It’s not because The Grove is the best, cheapest, or trendiest; it’s because it is the only one we could find in West Seattle! Luckily, it was close to the wedding and reception we were attending, and one of our most very, very favorite vegan and... More

We stayed for one night primo to our cruise. Between the 5 of us in two rooms we had 11 bags. We were on the second floor and they had no elevator. Be prepared to cart your luggage up the stairs!! The rooms were clean and the customer service was excellent!!

We originally chose The Grove because of its proximity to downtown Seattle, reasonable rate and favorable Tripadvisor reviews. The Grove offers both that convenience and value plus we also discovered that West Seattle is a very scenic, interesting place with good restaurants. The property is an example of making the very most of what you have. It's primarily a traditional... More

Nothing fancy here; it is a motel type property with limited interior corridor rooms, but I would describe it as a "boutique motel". It is about 5 miles from downtown Seattle, and is much less expensive than the hotels downtown, and the parking is free. You can drive to Seattle or take the water taxi, which has a free shuttle...
