Ok, after reading some of the TA reviews on SeaTac Clarion I was concerned about staying here, but at about one-third of the Marriott price (corp rates), I decided to try it for my 1 night stay.
Overall, it's OK to pretty good for a budget hotel. See pictures. Room was good (think older Hampton Inn before renovations). Included flat screen TV, work desk, free WIFI (worked well for me), good heater that was not too noisy, iron and board, hair dryer, small coffee maker, ice holder and real glass water glasses. Did not have microwave or mini-fridge in my Room 250. Things were a bit worn, but all in working order. Bathroom vanity appears to have been redone recently. Bed was semi-firm but with a pillow top pad and full mattress cover. Was perfect for me--not too soft, not too hard. Oh and they had two sets of pillows (2 feather and 2 non-feather)--great for me as I'm allergic to feather ones. Fairly quiet, I did not hear others, but they said it was only 40% occupied the night I was here.
This Clarion does not have free breakfast, but does have a nice restaurant where Clay cheerfully served me a good Mexican omlette and alway tasty Seattle coffee. There was also a nice sized lounge/bar area. Even with breakfast, total cost was far under a c-note.
The pool and work out areas (see pics) appeared clean and up-to-date, however, I did not use them on this trip.
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised, and I'd stay here again if needed. Staff were all friendly and helpful. And can't beat the location---could almost walk here from the Terminal---but they do have free shuttle that takes about 5 minutes. It's much farther to the new rental car facility---but you can get back here fairly easily. Parking here is free also.
Would normally be a 3 rating for accomodations only, but with the low price, it gets a 4.
