This is simply not a hotel. It is a poor version of a hostel. This is a relic from the 1920s and not in a good way. Vastly overpriced for what is offered. Awful beds and shared toilets. Stay away. Pretty sure there r better hostels in Seattle. Nothing going for this place.

We were travelling as a couple, staying in Seattle for two nights. Our priority was to find a budget hotel within walking distance from King Street Station, as we arrived into Seattle on the train from Vancouver late in the evening of our first night, and departed early in the morning two days later. We found the hotel easily enough,... More

I will preface this short review with some information on who we are any why we're here. We're two young 20-something year olds from Alaska visiting Seattle for a week and heading to PAX Prime (video game convention at the convention center). We chose this hotel to cut out the half hour train ride from the Airport area and also... More

What a great experience, to stay in the Historic Panama Hotel. It is the oldest running hotel in America and gives guests a great taste of yesteryear . Remember the old guest houses with share facilities, long hallways and flight's of stairs that require great energy to transcend? Well the Panama has it all and more......great historic experience, fantastic hospitality... More

The main objectives for booking this hotel were location, price, clean and safety. I feel it met my needs adequately. I give it 3 stars only because of comparing to high end hotels. The location is in the International Dist on 6 th and Main. It is about 3 blocks from the light rail and/or Amtrak which is what I... More

I read about this property prior to booking it. It was exactly what I expected it to be and I really enjoyed staying there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was cozy and had a charm from another time period. The complimentary espresso and pastry in the morning in the Tea Room were very nice as was... More

A hostel in this condition in Europe and maybe even anywhere outside of down town Seattle would charge 80% less. I would not pay more than $40 a night to stay here but their rates are as high as new hotels in other parts of north america. Example: Delta Hotel in Whistler BC charged me $220 a night for a...

it's OLD! It's a historic 'Bed & Breakfast', built in 1910. Their ad: "Experience the romance of a simpler time." Ok, I liked the charming antique furniture and lace curtains in the room but you really have to enjoy "old" to like the creaky steps (and many of them to climb to get to the check-in office), the creaky windows,...

The owners and workers were really nice.. made you feel at home. The location is also unbeatable and think its priced accordingly for the city. It is very loud if your room is on the street. There is a park filled with crazy people that scream and are loud until about 3 am.. Had earplugs in and it is very... More

This is a great hotel for anyone on a budget. Hotel was clean, employees were friendly and personable, and the location is awesome. Each room is furnished with antiques and beds were very comfortable. Guests receive a complimentary coffee (imported from Italy and the best I've had in a long time) and a pastry from the tea house (a gorgeous... More
