Neighborhood: Georgetown, South of Downtown Seattle
We depart Vancouver Island via the Washington State Auto Ferry, leaving Sidney, sailing to Anacortes, WA, the final leg of our journey to the Pacific Rim. We chose the Georgetown Inn, again, due to logistical necessity and attractive rates. We would be visiting with a family member in the suburbs of Seattle, close to the Inn, as well as wanting to be close to SeaTac International for our flight home. (The Inn is NOT at the airport.)
Although skeptical over this booking, the Georgetown Inn appeared to cater to a mature group of travelers who took advantage of using mass transportation to tour downtown Seattle. Located on the outskirts of an industrial area of town, King County METRO bus serves the area with routes that bring you directly into downtown Seattle. Bus routes 106 and 124 are only several short blocks from the Inn and run frequently. (http://www.kingcounty.go…)
Surprisingly, we found the Georgetown Inn to be quiet and clean, with excellent housekeping. Bedding was very comfortable with more than ample furnishings. A good-sized flat screen TV and fridge with free Wi-Fi were also nice perks. The bathroom was a generous size with a full tub and shower. A full complement of quality towels were stocked on the bathroom shelves.
The front desk staff were more than accommodating. Arriving a day earlier than planned, we were offered a standby room other than having us look elsewhere. Full, complementary breakfast foods and beverages were placed out each morning. Fresh muffins, baked breads, spreads, fruit, coffee, teas, cereals, hot and cold, were more than ample to start the day as well as the morning newspaper. Parking at the Inn was made easy with safe, illuminated parking areas located directly in front of the building.
Note that a bank with a walk-in ATM is located directly across the street, including a full service gas station, a nice touch and good to know. Interstate 5 is one block away. The front desk quickly printed out our boarding passes upon request to prepare us for our flight home following check-out.

- Clean, fully equipped rooms.
- Functional, quiet A/C in the wall.
- METRO bus service only blocks away.
- Avoid booking a room that borders the industrial building to the rear as there may be some low-level compressor noise during the evening.
- Due to local industrial businesses, the neighborhood may be considered somewhat disconcerting, yet that may be an incorrect assessment.
