“Great location (Space Needle rooms) for price, fine otherwise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Pay the small extra charge to guarantee to stay on the Space Needle side of the hotel; my decision to stay at this hotel was very much influenced by this factor (I wanted the room for view and location primarily), and my review is influenced by having a Space Needle view.

The room is large, and comfortable; the bed was fine to sleep in. We had a room with sofa and chair, and room enough for a big bed. The door to the adjoining room was *not* soundproofed well, and we could hear our neighbor talk pretty clearly (& vice-versa I imagine); stuffing a towel at the bottom of the door helped. I found the staff to be fine; pleasant enough as expected, and efficient (no complaints from me about staff; we didn't interact much). Parking is 'reasonable' for Seattle hotel rates, though be careful of where you park as we did have a white substance all over our car from the ceiling of the garage. We did not eat at the hotel, so cannot comment on that.

There is construction nearby, but that didn't affect our sleep quality. It's a very short walk to the Space Needle and Seattle Center.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to guarantee a Space Needle view; it's worth the relatively small charge.

This hotel was very comfortable and the people at the front desk most helpful. Rooms are large, bed very comfy, and the hotel was very quiet. The areas around the hotel (walking distance) are short on good restaurants, although there are some funky bistros and bars that seemed crowded and busy. A very easy walk to the Space Needle and the Monorail. No free breakfast was a disappointment.

This is the third year a group of us have travelled by car for the weekend to attend the Seattle boat show . We enjoy the location of the hotel,central for the boats show. We get some walking in ,the hotel is approx a block & 1/2 away from the space needle .The rooms are always clean. The staff are very friendly.they have fridges in room for convenience. The beds are comfortable. They offer the buffet breakfast as option. (Enjoyed more in the past) because it is a good location,we were able to walk to a liquor store that offered evening wine tasting . The parking has gotten a little expensive at hotel $15.00/ night.

Room Tip: Ask for the space needle view. You can also have connecting rooms if you are in a party.

I reviewed many hotels in the area and I considered this one to be the best in price and location for our purposes. We attended the International Motorcycle Show at the Convention Center via Monorail frequented the Space Needle shops Everything was ideal for us.

We came to check in, and the front staffs basically ignored us. Both of the staffs were pretty young, and rude. One of the staffs asked for a photo ID and credit card from my husband. We gave him our passport (Canadians), and immediately he starts singing " Oh Canada " in a mocking tone of voice. He then moved on to ask my husband's last name, and then went on to repeat my husband's last name in a mocking tone too. We were very upset, but we kept composure and figured we would only be here for a day. Through out the whole time, we've never received a "Thank you" or any sort of welcoming. I think we were thanking them for letting us pay them, and that we owe them for the pleasure of their company. I think I will avoid all Best Western hotels from now on, this will be hard since they do have a lot of hotels. As this is my second time staying at Best Western and to be honest, it's almost the same type of crappy service.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your feedback regarding your stay. I would like to greatly apologize about our desk agent offending you upon your arrival. Although, I do not think that the desk agent was intentionally meaning to offend you, I do certainly think that it was very unprofessional and inappropriate. I can assure you that this is not the type of service that you should expect from our hotel or our brand. If you are ever in Seattle again, I would like to ask that you give us another opportunity to provide you with the proper service that all of our guests deserve. Thank you once again for your feedback.

Close to the Space Needle and many attractions in the downtown area. Loved the room. Will stay here again. Room service was amazing (braised short ribs). $7.95 Breakfast buffet not so much when compared to the free breakfast at the Lincoln City Best-Western.
