Had to stay one night for business. Great breakfast. Excellent food with lots of variety. Clean and well planned room. Had all the conveniences of more expensive places. Would recommend to others for quick stay.

This was the first time staying at this location. I have been working in the area for years. Nothing fancy, but the staff and breakfast make it nice. I will definitely stay here when I return. The one thing I would improve is the number electrical outlets near the desk. One in the lamp is not enough.

I had to catch a early flight out of SeaTac on a business trip. I googled and found third party site which lead me to the Clarion. Staff was extremely helpful and they all seem happy. Front desk was polite and advised me where to park and to assure that my car was going to be fine stating they also had a security company patrolling at night times. I caught the 4 am shuttle coming down to the lobby to find a driver waiting for me with the can all warmed up. The room was very clean and the bed was SUPER comfy. Over all nothing was wrong or below my expectation. I will see you guys more often, thank you Clarion for the great experience.

We booked this using the Park, Sleep and Fly program. We stayed one night then left our car there while we travelled for a week. Room was clean and standard. The shuttle service both to an from the airport was efficient, but if you miss the shuttle by a bit, you will be waiting as it takes a while to get back and forth from the hotel. We particularly enjoyed the shuttle driver - very friendly fellow. Staff at the hotel were pleasant and helpful. Issue is there is very few places around to eat so keep that in mind when booking.

The parking program is a great program, especially when there is not an aiport conveniently located near your home. I apologize if you had any significant waiting time for our shuttle. I agree we do have a friendly staff and drivers and they work hard to accommodate our guests needs. We only have a few places to eat near the Hotel. The majority of the restaraunts are near our shopping mall. We also provide a shuttle service anywhere within 5 miles of the Hotel. Thank you for your comments and hope to see you back soon.

Flying out of Seattle is a hassel for us. Finding a place to leave the car for 14 days was difficult. The Clarion in Renton met all our needs. The staff was courteous. The shuttle service was quick and efficient. I chose the Renton Clarion because I wanted a quiet place. It fit our needs. The special plus was that we could walk to IKEA. We also found a mall nearby, what a treat. It was not within walking distance.

I landed in Seattle around 6pm and was on the hotel shuttle within 20 minutes of calling from the gate. The night shift front desk staff/shuttle driver are excellent, and very responsive. As an example, without complaint they switched me out of a room with weak WiFi. Alex at the desk then suggested rooms that he knew had great WiFi signal and explained that they were in the process of mapping the rooms with the weak signals so that they could work with their vendor to improve service.

With that said, I had to drop two stars for the housekeeping. Room was passable when I checked in, except that it looked like they took a shortcut when it came to vacuuming around the furniture. Also after returning to my room after housekeeping's visit, I found that some of my towels had not been replaced. The old ones were just removed. Also, not that I'd drink hotel coffee, the coffee cups, decanter, and coffee maker looked like they hadn't been used for a while. They were very dusty and the sugar packets looked like they'd gotten wet at some point because they had clumped up.

I have business in this area often and have found this Clarion to always be clean and comfortable. It's a basic room with up to date amenities. Hot breakfast is always nice to have and a great selection considering the low price of this hotel for the area. It's only about 5 minutes to southcenter shopping mall, and a theater is right across the street. Freeway access is less than a 1/4 mile away. If you are looking for somewhere near Seattle (about a 30 minute drive)(10 to airport) that is inexpensive, comfortable, friendly and clean, I highly reccomend it.
