Clean room, but a little dated. You may want to bring your own toiletries as what was provided was very basic. We were given the great corner room with a beautiful view. Good value and very knowledgeable staff. Nice walk to lots of fun places in Freemont.

We chose this motel from the Booking.com site because it was reasonably priced and was on a direct bus route into the city. It's pretty basic but has comfortable bed, shower, etc. All clean and tidy. Had to ask for towels to be provided and my request for an extra pillow seemed a bit of an imposition!

Looking at previous reviews and the price of being near to Seattle we thought we would give it a go but how we regret this. The room was filthy, the bed sheets had not been changed with blood stains and you can tell someone had slept in it. When we showed these sheets we got the reply of it might... More

A decent budget motel. TV, Fridge and freezer but no kettle :( The bed was a double a little smaller than I would of liked and the sheets had been well used and towels were on the small size. They wouldn't fit around my husband! This motel was ok for us as it was clean and helped stretch our budget.... More

After my first night there I thought I was bitten on the neck by flea. After that night it morphed into a two inch long blister looking thing across my neck! It could only be SUPER BED BUGS!! Probably one vicious mean one. A real blood sucker!

My room was clean and spacey, the bed was comfortable and I had a good night sleep. The bathroom could have been cleaned a bit more but it has all that I needed. The location is good with a lot of restaurants nearby (10 min walk) and away from the noisy city. There's muffins and coffee for breakfast. The staff... More

This is a very old motel. The tub/shower unit was filthy with original fixtures. Beds were torn and uncomfortable. The air conditioner barely worked and was so noisy we couldn't sleep with it on. The noise from Aurora Ave was also very loud so sleep was difficult at best. The location is not great for seeing the sights downtown as... More

We were looking for an option much less expensive than the going rates downtown Seattle ($300/night+), but we wanted to be as close to downtown as possible. This hotel is a VERY easy drive back and forth to downtown (take the 99). It was our 20th wedding anniversary and we were blessed to get room 237, which is a corner... More

I didn't expect much from this hotel but a place to sleep and shower, and that's what I got. Thankful for the previous reviews, because they were spot on. This hotel is OLD SCHOOL! In fact, they don't even have a computerized reservation system. It appears that the owner lives on site, in a room off the tiny lobby. Although... More

The Marco Polo is an old motel that has been taken very good care of. Our room was nice, freshly painted, new looking carpet, quiet air conditioner. The windows are double pane so there is no street noise. Nothing fancy... but nice! Good location at a good price
