We stayed in the deluxe king room so we would have a private bathroom. We were in town only one night to attend a concert. Upon arriving in the room, I was greatly disappointed to discover that there was no closet (only 4 hooks on the wall), and that the bathroom lighting was severely inadequate. The bathroom lights are fine... More

Probably not worth the money you will spend to stay in charming Ballard area of Seattle. We stayed on a Saturday night and heard every single person come in and go out of all the rooms around us. The property is quaint and charming, very opulent décor. However, not worth the lack of sleep due to street noise and other... More

Great location in the middle of all the fun things to do in Ballard. A bit pricey for the tiny room we got and the bathroom being down the hall. Very clean and well done, though. I would stay again, but would be hesitant with the price. Also, had to pay for parking which was $15 on top of the... More

You know, I thought the shared bathrooms would be weird... wasn't in the slightest. Not once did I have a problem with occupancy or cleanliness. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staying at the hotel gives you access to a pretty awesome gym next door. The staff was friendly and more than willing to talk you through what's in the... More

We have stayed at this hotel quite a few times and have always enjoyed it. The Front Desk personnel are friendly and helpful, especially Brandon who always remembers us from previous visits. If your'e a first time visitor don't be put off by the shared bath / restrooms used by most rooms. We have seldom had to wait for the... More

I was very pleased with my stay at the Ballard Inn. We arrived very early in the morning and were in our room by noon - very accommodating. They held our luggage while we explored Old Ballard, which is a cute place with lots to do and eat. The staff was very friendly and the room and restrooms were clean.... More

I'm really conflicted about this one. I bought a Living Social coupon without doing my research, which is my bad. On one hand, the Inn is very quaint. Stayed at the Deluxe King room w/ private bath, which was great. The room was just spacious enough, clean and the bed super comfortable. The service was great and the location is... More

I love this place. Special. It is not standard American big bathroom fare, but better in that it is rea - on a real street with real people in a real part of town. I'd come back in a minute. The bathroom is shared, the room is small but the experience is authentic and an adventure. You have the use... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night a few days ago, from a livingsocial voucher we had purchased. The stay was very comfortable and nice. The location is prime, can't be beat, right in the heart of Ballard. There is no A/C but the room had 4 fans in it which kept it very cool and comfortable. We... More
