“Great value, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a week in April. We thought it was a great deal and a great location. We used our AAA discount and the price was very reasonable. Our room was fairly standard, not luxury, but clean and comfortable. Plus HBO! We had a king bed with a fridge and microwave in the room--useful for leftovers—and a little balcony. A basic breakfast is included. You can get cold cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, waggles, toast, juice.
We thought the location was superb. But we like to walk everywhere. The hotel isn’t really “downtown.” It’s right on the edge of a newly built up neighborhood called South Lake Union (www.discoverslu.com/). And you can easily walk to sites like the Space Needle and Pike Place Market.
We did not have a car, but I believe the parking is free at the hotel. If you’re a member of ZipCar, there are cars available right around the corner.
Staff was friendly and helped us with the free wifi access when we had trouble—no trouble after that and helped us get a taxi back to the airport. We would stay here again and recommend it highly.

I was very surprised by how nice this La Quinta was. The staff was very friendly. The room was nice with a comfy bed. The water pressure is AMAZING! It is very close to downtown (within walking distance). You can't beat the price, especially considering breakfast is included. I'd stay here again.

The room was excellent, very roomy. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were firm and not flat like so many other places. The breakfast was tasty with a good choice of items. The staff was very friendly and I plan on staying there again.

The good--clean, friendly staff, decently remodeled, several different seating areas around lobby, average breakfast, 24 hr tea/coffee AND we really enjoyed the ice water/fresh lemonade (near elevators). We got a great rate thru an auto association discount. AND free!! parking-altho the smaller the car the easier. The free wi-fi worked pretty well.

The bad--somewhat musty smell overall in lobby/building-NOT bad but noticeable as you walk in from outside, also in room but dissipated quickly w/fan or opening window. Hotel was 100% full and they had a hard time keeping breakfast items stocked and dirty dishes were stacked up on the counters.

The great rate we recv'd along w/the free parking-FREE parking in Seattle?! is why we chose this hotel.
Knew the location wasn't great for us-- Pike Place Market and the waterfront were our destinations everyday but sure didn't want to pay those hotel prices! so definitely got a LOT of walking in--no problem as it was just the two of us (who need exercise!) and no kids and the weather was amazingly nice but would not have wanted to go back and forth in horrid weather or with kids. Very convenient to Seattle Center.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor room--6th or 7th floor, even if you face the office building the street noise...

Hotel in area around Space Needle is an older property but nicely renovated. Very quiet so able to get restful sleep. Walking distance to all parts of Seattle downtown and Space Needle, although restaurants not that plentiful in the area (despite numerous hotels in proximity). There is a Whole Foods down the street where you can buy hot meals. Parking is free, a definite plus in Seattle downtown area (can't think of any other hotel that has free parking), although parking spaces are tight and more suited for sedans rather than vans/SUV's. Front desk staff was very helpful, especially Joe on the night shift. Breakfast items run out if you go down to the breakfast area after 9 am - just need to go early. All in all, a good stay, and would definitely stay again when in Seattle.
