This is our final hotel and the end of our roadtrip. We are very glad we stayed here. We found the hotel via Tripadvisor with very good reviews (and can't agree with the 'bad' reviews). The staff is extreme friendly and helpful. The renovated hotel is clean, is up to the modern standards and very complete. The breakfast is good,... More

We love West Seattle and I was thrilled when I came across this highly rated hotel. The staff at check-in and check-out were very friendly. We booked a queen room and it was very small. We were only staying one night, so it was fine, however if we had a longer stay, I'd probably book somewhere else or inquire if... More

This is my first ever review. Apologies to the staff, as I said I would write this review upon my return home (2 months ago.) Stayed four nights, and yes, a mirror in the sleeping room would have been nice. Staff is totally friendly & helpful. Breakfast was fabulous, served in an immaculate setting. Bus stop is close by.

This place is a great value. My wife and I stayed on two separate occasions while we visited Seattle. The rooms are small but they are very clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens clean.

Wow...so glad we found this place. It may only be small, and far from the hustle and bustle, but it was a great bolt hole for 3 nights. Very clean and fresh, and huge room compared to UK standards. Good value for money. Excellent customer service. Was mightily impressed to get a very early check in following our flight from... More

Great value for being only 15-20 minutes drive from Pike Market, Ferry Terminal, Seattle Center and Pacific Place. Our family of two adults and two kids stayed in Room 221 with two doubles. Looks like the room has recently been updated, so modern, clean and everything working fine. The beds, linens, towels and pillows are clean and comfortable. The bathroom... More

Clean rooms, comfy beds, only a couple minutes from downtown with plenty of places nearby to get something to eat. We looked at many places downtown and chose The Grove do to being quite cheaper and I think it was a good choice. I'm gonna come back to Seattle and I'll be staying here again.

This place is cute, fun atmosphere, like an old motor lodge, but turned modern and hip. Clean linens, very nice hotel room. Service was very friendly. Plenty of parking. Great location near downtown. You can take the water taxi if you don't want to take you car. Great visit!
