“Precruise Overnight- simplified our trip”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We booked an Alaskan cruise and were totally confused by all of the transportation options from SEA TAC airport to Pier 66 or 91. The Holiday Inn Express precruise package simplified this for us. It included the room, a hot breakfast and R/T shuttle tickets from the hotel to the pier. The price was very competitive and since my wife has difficulty walking, we needed a shuttle to deliver us to the pier and then back to the airport. Otherwise, we would have taken the Light Rail, but she would have to walk 1/2 miles and couldn't. The hotel was staffed by friendly, efficient people, airport pick up was quick and easy, the breakfast was hot and of good quality, the shuttle to the pier was early and waiting for us. What's not to like? Comfy bed, clean room, wake up call on time. OK, the walls maybe were a little thin, but it is very hard to find a sound proof hotel room anywhere. We could hear a little, but it wasn't too annoying.

In most respects, the hotel was what you would expect from the chain: clean room, furnishings in good condition, everything fully functional. One thing that surprised us was the layout, almost a suite with a small room mostly set aside in the front that allowed one of us to sleep while the other watched TV or used the desk. One power outlet appeared to be nonfunctional, but everything else was fine, with good, friendly service at the front desk.

Dear Duece444,

Our king rooms are almost set up like a suite with a couch, T.V. and desk in the living room area and then the king bed tucked into the back of the room with the top of the bed behind a wall to help block out sound and light. I'm glad that you enjoyed your room.

Nice motel... Clean comfortable and good price. There are a few problems though. The breakfast, while nice, could not keep up with the many people of the full motel. Also trying to get on the shuttle to the airport was difficult as it seemed that everyone in the hotel wanted to get on board at the same time. (My advice... try to go when the motel is not full).

Dear LTCSPG,

Once summer travel gets under way we do tend to fill up, but we will make sure that every guest gets to the airport. We will do multiple trips if needed to make sure that we get everyone where they need to be in a timely manner. We are also using a second breakfast now to make sure we stay up on all of our breakfast needs. Thank you for staying with us.

After a very long flight from the UK, we made a call to the hotel, and were greeted at the airport by the Holiday Inn Express shuttle within minutes. We had three small children, two adults, and a Labrador dog, and 9 pieces of luggage. The shuttle was able to accommodate all of it, and our driver was fantastic! The drive to the hotel and check-in was quick and friendly. The hotel receptionists even provided us a menu for a local pizza place. Which was delicious. We don't usually travel with our dog, but the only issue we had is the kennel as too large to maneuver down the hallway with the luggage cart, so we just pulled it along. It was a very large kennel though. The room was large enough with 2 queen beds. It was very clean and even included a fridge. We slept great, comfy beds and quiet room. In the early morning, we were ready to go, checkout was quick. The shuttle van was there at 4am, we loaded the van ourselves. The driver wasn't there yet, but arrived a little later, then left again, then came back a few minutes later and we left for the airport. We would stay again, large clean room, convenient shuttle, friendly staff, comfy beds, reasonable price.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor about the center of the hotel, and had no noise from the street or planes.

We stayed here one night. The rooms are very spacious, clean hotel too. The beds were quite comfortable, and very little noise coming from other rooms or the hallway. The room had a separate sink and countertop with the kitchenette which had a microwave and decent sized apartment fridge. Very good breakfast selections included with the free breakfast. My kid's complaint - no pool.... But, not all hotels have pools. Very nice stay for an overnight or a few, easy access to the airport and to the highway to get into Seattle.

Hello Heather T,

Thank you for your kind comments about our hotel. Unfortunately we don't have a pool on property but our shuttle will definitely take you to the local YMCA to go swimming and the front desk has some coupons that make it free for the first 3 days. We hope you stay with us again on your next trip through Seattle.

We picked this hotel for the night before our Alaska cruise. We have never been to Seattle and didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. They changed our reservation to the 'cruise package' (which I don't think this was an option on their website) and it included shuttles to and from the cruise port at half the price that Princess offered. The rooms were big and clean and the staff was exceptionally friendly. They took time to tell us about the shuttle to the light rail station and how to get downtown and which tourist traps were worth the time and money. Also the free shuttle to and from the airport and the light rail was greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us before your Alaska cruise. We do have a cruise transportation package on our website that makes getting to and from the cruise lines extremely easy. I'm glad you got to take our shuttle to the light rail, it's one of the best ways to get downtown! Thank you so much for your kind comments.

I reserved 2 rooms for one night at the Holiday Inn Express.......a standard room for our traveling companions and a suite for my husband and myself. We checked in late after coming from Vancouver Island via the Clipper. We both presented our credit card when checking in and were assigned our rooms. Our "suite" was adequate with a sitting area and king bed, but our companion's room was obviously larger and nicer. My husband checked with the desk and found out they got the suite and we got the standard room. It wasn't a big deal and I supposed we could have switched, but it was passed midnight and we were unpacked and ready to go to bed. I realize the staff was limited at that time of the night, and we should have checked before signing, but it was their responsibility to get us in the correct room. We were happy we saved a few $$$, but our companions were not happy they spent more than they intended.

Room Tip: Be sure to check to make sure you get the room you booked.
