“Great Place To Stay - Near SeaTac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

I stayed here one night before flying out of SeaTac and found this to be a good place to stay. They have a free shuttle to the airport which is shared with the hotel next door but I never saw it full.

The breakfast area is larger than a lot of other hotels offering a free breakfast. They had a nice selection of food and included make it yourself pankcakes which were very good and easy to make. Making them yourself insured that they were fresh and hot.

When I checked in I found that I was upgraded free to a suite room. This was very nice and offered a small but fully functioning kitchen with a full size refrigerator. I didn't have the chance to utilize the kitchen area but if I had been staying longer it would have been a real convenience.

The staff were all very nice and helpful. They were having a problem with the internet and were promptly in touch with someone to have it fixed.

I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms towrd the back are very quite - no airport noise.

Thank you so much for giving us high remarks. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the new pancake machine and rest of our breakfast. We try our best to upgrade priority club members when we have availability. We do share shutlle with Fairfield Inn next door but run two vans and have a third as backup. I'm also glad to hear that we were able to get the internet back up for you. Again, thank you for your high marks.

I booked several nights at this hotel both at the start of our vacation & at the end. The location from the airport was convenient & even better yet was the free transporation service to the airport or to the train station (same place). Typical morning food, but I like that these middle level hotels include breakfast & a newspaper for free that you'd have to pay for at a more expensive hotel. It was very clean & the staff was very helpful too.

My husband, my daughters (6 and 8) and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express SeaTac during July 9-12. We chose the hotel based on the reviews here, and couldn't have been more pleased; it was a very nice experience. This hotel is not only great for overnight stays but also is very convenient for those who want to visit Seattle for a few days (our case) but don't want to waste their money on an overpriced downtown hotel. This hotel offers shuttle service to the light rail station (located at the airport) which takes you to Downtown Seattle in around 25 minutes (a really pleasant ride); they also offer shuttle service to nearby restaurants.

We arrived at night after a long day travelling but, thanks to a very efficient staff, the check-in process was really quick and pleasant. Our 3rd floor room was really nice, clean, and big, with all the needed modern conveniences: comfortable queen beds, flat TV, microwave and fridge, and a nice bathroom. We had a great night sleep; the proximity of the airport is not a problem at all (you almost forget is so near). The hotel also offers free parking.

The breakfast was one of the best things about the hotel since it offers a nice variety (which is great when you're travelling with children): bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs or cheese omelettes, oatmeal, pancakes (made at the moment), muffins, croissants, bread, different kinds of cereals, yogurts, and fruits, juice, coffee; it was a great way to start the day before heading downtown. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who wants a nice and comfortable room, very good breakfast, free parking, and shuttle service for a great price. Whenever we go back to Seattle we'll be staying there again!

We booked 2 books rooms since we were all arriving late and didn't want to drive to Antecortes during the night.
To our surprize the rooms were very large, had a fridge,mirowave and a medium size flat screem tv.
The beds were super comfortable, they also include a hot breakfast which was a plus.
The plan was to stay a night in Antecortes and drive back the next morning to the airport, we enjoyed the rooms so much we book an additional night and drive back that evening.
If your looking for a decent clean room, at a moderate price this hotel is the right choice, We will definetly stay there again!

We stayed here for five days at the end of July, and had an excellent experience. The shuttle was always available to take us to the light rail station to go into Seattle. There is a good hot buffet breakfast that includes plenty of protein and fresh fruit. The suite itself is more like an apartment. The staff was always available and responsive. The room was wonderfully quiet even though it was completely booked. The air conditioning was cool and quiet, beds were comfortable. Well worth being at a distance from downtown Seattle to save so much money and have such a comfortable, functional place.

We stayed here post-cruise for a night (not the cruise package; we drove from Vancouver) before our flight home from SEA and were very pleased. The room we had was more than adequate -- two queens and a sofabed. It also had a full kitchen and we were given a water bottle and bag of microwave popcorn since we were Priority Club members. The beds were comfortable, free parking was ample and convenient. The property is close to the airport, restaurants, gas stations and shopping centers. A nice plus about the location is you can get to the airport without going back on the interstate, so there's really a zero chance of getting caught in traffic going to SEA. The breakfast is one of the better ones we hit on this trip (the cinnamon buns were great!, and there was a pancake maker I didn't get to try out) and there was ample seating, which was the first we ran into this trip. Planes fly by fairly close, but I didn't find jet noise to be a problem. I'd happily stay here again if I return to Seattle. Only problem I can think of was the wi-fi router in our room didn't work right (it's free), but I was able to get a decent connection from a nearby room.

The Cruise Package included shuttle to and from the airport PLUS to and from the Cruise Piers. It was organized, you signed up for a shuttle time so everyone wasn't waiting in the lobby for shuttles. Hotel was clean, hot breakfast yummy and served from 5-10 a.m. most days. Staff was over the top friendly and ready to answer questions. Highly recommend this hotel when taking a cruise out of the Port of Seattle.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We have been doing the "cruise package" for many years now. Everyone enjoys the convenience of not having to worry about transportation. Our breakfast is 5-10 on the weekends and 5-9:30am weekdays. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast. We look forward to all the future cruisers.
