Our son lives in a small apartment in West Seattle, so staying with him is difficult. We stayed at The Grove for two nights on a quick trip, and it was better than expected! The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean, quiet, and a big surprise from what you see from the street. As long as we can book... More

The Grove is the only hotel in West Seattle and is very well priced. It's been totally refurbished and rooms are simple but elegant. The beds are very comfortable. All the amenities you have come to expect are there- mini-fridge, coffee maker, iron & board etc. Basic but good continental breakfast is included which was a nice surprise! We will... More

Just returned from 3 night stay during Christmas at The Grove, West Seattle's only hotel/motel. Very pleasant stay...all the staff were welcoming and accommodating. Very personable! The room was clean and comfortable. I definitely will stay at The Grove whenever I am back visiting in Seattle!

We stayed at The Grove over Christmas 2015. The room was clean, comfortable and had plenty of room. The staff was friendly, professional, and helpful. When I had to go to my car at 3:00 in the morning, the lobby night shift staff was right there making sure everything was OK. I will stay at The Grove when visiting West... More

The check-in staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Very comfortable bed. Room was very clean and warm. Easy to find hotel on a cold, dark and windy night. The bathroom is a tight fit, slight flexibility needed to shut door and use the facilities. I will use this hotel again if called back for business.

I was looking for a hotel in West Seattle and there really isn't any choice so I wasn't expecting a lot. The motel looks pretty basic from the outside, but I received a warm and friendly welcome at check-in and was pleasantly surprised by the very clean and attractive room. Can't beat the value and there are lots of places... More

Thank you for giving us a chance to provide you with a great lodging experience. You are right....we are just a small motor inn that has been remodeled to today's standards with clean and comfortable rooms. That coupled with fantastic guest services keeps our guests coming back again and again. It also does help that we are the only choice... More

The Grove was a nice and simple place for my friend and me to rest our heads after a full day out on the town in downtown Seattle. It's nothing really impressive from the outside, and it looks like a simple motel. However, when you get into the rooms they are updated with modern amenities, and they're clean. The beds... More

Who knew there was such a cute place in West Seattle? Its a refurbished older motel style place where they have done everything right; nothing looks or feels cheap. The rooms are lovely and very clean, the tub is cast iron, the shower was to die for, and the bed was crisp and yummy. Breakfast was basic. Would definitely come... More

Super nice staff plus a huge YMCA across the street (all of $5), plus a nice room makes for an enjoyable stay. It's well-located, at least for West Seattle. Decent continental breakfast, too. Note: The rooms facing Alaska St are noisy...so bring earplugs at night else get a room in the back (I'd go for one of these rooms at... More
