This place got good reviews so I went with it. It was cheap and I now know why. We checked in and it smelled old and dated in the office. We went to our rooms and the result was the same. My daughter found a large hair on her pillow. We were out of there. The manager did give us... More

Our door did not close completely however it did manage to lock. Shower tub would fill as you shower, up to your ankles. Tub floor was grimy and as it filled with water because the drain was clogged, past occupiers hair floated around. Just wasn't clean in any way. They double booked us and we had people try to break... More

We spent entire day roaming the streets of Seattle or... More

Not any more than OK. We stayed there because we could leave our car for a week for only $5 a day while we cruised from the port 15 minutes away. No luxury here. Bring a GPS to find this place. Not any place to eat close by either.

We made a mistake booking our hostel,and had to find lodging within walking distance (and all our luggage.) The manager had only one room available that was being converted to nonsmoking, but still smelled. After agreeing on $100.00, he said he didn't feel right about it, and lowered it to 90.00 for us! :D

The Marco Polo was what we were looking for in Seattle. It was the price that got our attention and the reviews were good. The place is clean and felt safe, the staff was friendly and helpful, even referring us to a great Indian Restaurant. The only advise I would give others booking a room at the Marco Polo is... More

We were very satisfied with this motel. It looks pleasant and safe, not sketchy at all. Our room was huge with a living room area as well as a bedroom area. It was a nice quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of Gasworks park to see the 4th of July fireworks. Breakfast was okay (more than I expected) - coffee and... More

very nice and accommodating motel staff. outdated but comfortable and I felt very safe. I would stay there again! the cars outside weren't sketchy and the people in the morning coming out of their rooms looked normal too. and it was quiet, being as it was on Aurora!
