“Typically Fine Holiday Inn Express”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a nice hotel with the standard quality you expect from Holiday Inn Express. The room was spacious and clean. Despite being five minutes from the airport, it was very quiet and I was able to sleep easily. The free breakfast was plentiful, as was the free parking.
I found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. At check-in I received a couple of good tips for places to eat and shop that were nearby.
It's a good location, about a 20 minute drive to Pike Place Markets and downtown Seattle and the savings in price versus a downtown Seattle hotel makes the extra drive worth it.

Dear carl0086,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We strive to make every guest staff as perfect as possible. I'm glad that you found going downtown so easy. I also want to say if you ever don't feel like driving you can also use the hotel shuttle to go down to the light rail and it is $5.50 for an all day pass and you can by pass the hassle of parking downtown. I hope you stay with us again if you are ever in the SeaTac area.

Sincerely,
Karrie Schofield

Stayed earlier this week. Room was pretty basic, but during check in we had to listen to the girl at the counter be quite rude to whatever customer was on the other line. She was being quite dramatic about it, and very pointedly hung up after she apparently was done answering questions. From our end it sounded like the hotel was full and he was asking for recommendations, but hard to say. The room itself was ok, pricey for a holiday inn, no breakfast, and about 15 mins from the airport. Check out wasn't until noon, which I thought would be nice, until about 9:30am when housekeeping attempted to enter the room without knocking or anything. I called the front desk concerned that either a) I had missed checkout, or b) someone had just tried to gain access to my room (I had the safety bar flipped). The front desk said 'oh it was probably just housekeeping'. I asked why they would be trying to enter without knocking, especially 2.5 hrs before checkout, and she said 'well to clean your room. Anything else I can help with?' No sorry, no let me confirm it was housekeeping and not some random creeper... overall I would only return out of necessity.

We stayed there for one night as we were there to see the Mariner's game in Seattle. The hotels in Seattle were outrageously priced so we looked in Sea-Tac and found this Holiday Inn. Though not quite as nice as the one we stayed in when we were in Eugene, Oregon, it was a nice hotel. There was a great hot continental breakfast with more than enough to eat and the breakfast area was very lovely. The fifth floor we were on did have a smokey smell to it though we booked a non-smoking room. It came with a fridge, microwave and sink which was great when travelling with young boys. We took the 509 to Safeco Field and were there in 10 minutes which was a pleasant surprise. Would definitely stay here (or the area) again.

Dear mamarama65,

Thank you so much for your kind review! We try and make every stay as pleasant as possible. We do have a couple of smoking rooms left on our fifth floor and sometimes the smell can travel down the hallway, but I apologize that you experienced that. If you do comeback to the area please remember you can always take our light rail to the stadiums to go to a game. if you don't want to deal with traffic or parking down there. I hope to see your family again here at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Seattle-Sea-Tac- Airport.

Sincerely,
Karrie Schofield

Had an overnight stay in July before boarding cruise ship. Shuttle from airport was very convenient. Front desk receptionist was very knowledgeable and eager to share information on how to get around Seattle. Breakfast was included and was substantial.

Room Tip: $1.00 bills needed for tipping shuttle drivers. These drivers were very helpful.

Staff was super! The rooms were large, had a fridge and separate sink area with coffee maker. Furniture only slightly dated, but top notch value! We really enjoyed the small amount of time we spent in the room. Wifi is free as well as breakfast and they have shuttles that take you to both the light rail and the airport at all times!

We flew into Seattle the day before our Alaskan cruise. We landed about 800 am and called the shuttle from the airport .They picked us up , dropped us off at Daves diner for some breakfast and when we were done they picked us up and had our rooms ready for us. Chris and other front desk help were wonderful. Nice rooms decent quick breakfast and great shuttle service.

Very close to airport but far enough away that we didn't have any problem sleeping through the night. It was very easy to find and allowed us to get to a hotel after a long day of traveling so we could crash. Breakfast was great as usual for HIExpress, as we do love some cinnamon rolls! Staff was very friendly and welcoming for us! Very clean rooms, comfortable beds and . We would stay here again!
