I'm not sure why there are so few reviews on this place. The hotel was fairly busy. The place is basically composed of I believe at least 10 separate buildings, with several apartments to each of them.
If you're into shopping, this is prime real estate. Across the street from Target, World Market and Kohls, and less than a 5 minute walk to the huge Alderwood Mall. Forgot about circling that mall for parking, just walk there! Trader Joes, Nordstrom Rack, Toys R Us are all about 5 minute away by car. The Keg is across the lane, and many restaurants at the mall (Claim Jumpers, PF Changs, etc).
Wonderful welcoming staff. They gave us coupons to use at the Mall. Very helpful advice. Reception is in its own building. Nice fireplace, business center with free computer use, a small library to borrow books, 2 nice sized tvs and the eating area.
Included buffet breakfast is always a bonus. Not too bad. Sausages to eggs to fruit to steamed rice to waffles. Nice selection. The seating area is small, so we had to wait for a few minutes before a table freed up. It was nice to see people cleaning up after themselves as I didn't see any cleaning staff during meal time. Another bonus is they provide free light dinners Monday thru Thursday. We never got to indulge in that, but the menu looked nice. Every day is different, would loved to have tried BBQ Tuesday.
Walking around the compound can be confusing, but follow the sign to reception. There's an outdoor pool, basketball court, bbq area, a fire pit area, and an outdoor seating area in the middle. For those that stay here long term, these are nice touches.
We requested a quiet room, so we were placed in the back (we had to drive from reception to the back). Ample parking throughout. We faced a stone wall. Extremely quiet. The front units face the busy street. Very spacious. A seating area with flat screen tv, a desk, a kitchen table that could sit 4, a king bed, and a fully stocked kitchen. Full sized fridge with ice already in the trays, and a jug of chilled water. Nice touch. Stove and microwave, with all the utensils. Cutting board, plates, cups, etc. Microwavable popcorn and tea in the room. The sink for the bathroom is located outside the bathroom. The bathroom is on the small side, but manageable. Clean.
This place is not going for the dark wood look that many hotels are updating to, but I liked the decor. Simple. Nice heat/air con unit that worked well. Not too loud at all.
We were in the main floor unit, so we did hear some foot steps from the upstairs unit. Wasn't that loud, don't get me wrong. Just noticeable.
I believe every unit has their own outdoor area. We never used it, but again a nice touch.
We had a baby stroller, which made getting from the car to the path a bit challenging as there were 3 steps from the parking area into the walking path area. In addition, we had another 3 steps to walk up to get to our door. I looked around and not every building needed stairs to get into the main floor units. Did I mention that all the units have their own separate outside entrance? Don't picture this as a hotel that you wander around inside. In order to get to any of the rooms, you have to walk outside from reception. It was nice to get fresh air every time we opened the door.
Different staff, still very friendly. We checked out just as they were bringing out freshly baked cookies. Not bad! Genuinely friendly and chatted to us as if we were old friends.
Great walking location, just park and shop. Very good option for those staying long term and don't want to eat out all the time. Free food is always good. Definitely would recommend this place.
