Within walking distance to Ikea, which is why we were in Renton. Rooms had frig, micro, cable, good hot shower.
My complaint is with the airport shuttle service. We had a verbal agreement to use the airport shuttle before we booked our stay. After staying at the hotel for 4 nights we attempted to make a reservation for 0400 and were told the shuttle didn't run at that time. We requested a taxi voucher, and we were flatly told no. We requested a taxi to be arranged for the next morning and we were told the fair would be about $17-$18. The "taxi" arrived 5 minutes late and was just someone's car. No visible taxi license, no meter, just a car. After arriving at the airport the driver told us the fair was $27 using the "extra person" rationale. We were very displeased with the service from the hotel staff person because of lack of service and incorrect information. We were left with no other option since we had to get to the airport on time.
Lessons learned - ask what times the shuttles run and either verify the taxi is from a reputable service, or call your own.
I would recommend this hotel to someone ONLY if they are shopping at Ikea.
