My wife and I stayed here on our way through Seattle. Arrived late and left the next day. The shuttle seemed to take a while but we probably arrived just after it left. They say about 15 minutes for a round trip but I think it was at least 20 minutes. Rooms were adequate but the 3rd floor highway was HOT. I think they had the heat going full blast. Luckily, our rooms were not and it was very pleasant sleeping. The beds were soft and comfortable. The breakfast was average. A nice overnight stay.

Dear John L,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We do run our airport shuttle every 30 minutes in the morning and then is on-call after noon. I hope you will stay with us the next time that you are in the Seattle area.

Clean hotel with a relatively large room (ours had a queen bed, separate living room, separate kitchen) and a decent view of Mount Rainier. The FREE shuttle service was absolutely fantastic! Picks up/Drops off to pretty much anywhere (restaurants, train stations, attractions) in the area with limited waiting, and you are fairly close to the train which takes you directly to the tourist areas. The morning departure for the cruise was slightly hectic, but after realizing they underestimated the number of people leaving for the ports, they got my girlfriend and I a private car to our port at no extra cost. All of their prices for port transport are on their website and are reasonable. If ever taking a cruise out of Seattle again, I will stay here. If going there just for sightseeing, I would probably choose a hotel in the downtown core.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Mount Rainier.

Dear Keith F,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We try and make leaving for a cruise as easy as possible. Our cruise transportation package makes getting to your cruise a snap, plus you can take our shuttle to the light rail and visit downtown as well.

This is a very good property; we usually stay in one of the other chain hotels at SEA-TAC, but because of my top-tier status with Intercon, we decided to give this hotel a try. We were not in any way disappointed. We were only here for one night, stopping over between segments of a long trip, and we had a fine stay. The front desk was as friendly as can be, with a warm greeting and lots of good answers to the questions we posed. The room was clean, with comfortable bed and lots of pillows (labeled "firm" and "soft"!). The washroom was small but clean, with plenty of soft towels. This hotel is well-tuned to looking after harried travelers, and while they don't have a restaurant, they have menus for places that deliver, and they also offer to shuttle you to any of the 20+ restaurants nearby, and to pick you up again when you call. We had to leave at 3:30 AM for our on-going flight; the wake-up call came right on time, and the shuttle left for the airport exactly on schedule. Without exception, the employees greeted us warmly, thanked us for our business, and made us feel that they really appreciated our business. We'll stay here again.

Room Tip: The "suites" that we learned about (there may be others) are at the ends of each floor, an...

We stayed here on an overnight layover. It was nice to have a shuttle come pick us up, but we did have to call for it. When we checked in we were tired and the front desk staff seemed like they were ready for bed as well. Our room was nice looked semi updated, it was loud from the traffic noise. One of the major concerns was the bathroom as the vanity was detaching itself from the wall enough where in the middle I could put my arm through it and the wall paper was coming up. The breakfast wasn't as good as normal HI expresses everything seemed over cooked. I would say this is a layover hotel. If you plan on staying longer someplace else would be better.

Room Tip: Not on the street side.

Stayed one night in a king suite on our overnight layover. Although, we thought we booked the night at the other Holiday Inn on the same road (the one right next door to Denny's). We wanted to stay there because we knew we would be hungry from our long day of international travel.
Although this wasn't where we expected to be overnighting, it was quite pleasant. We told the front desk lady that we were starved and she promptly gave us a bunch of take out menus and recommendations. This was above and beyond the call of duty, and much appreciated! I wish I knew her name so I could give her kudos on here.
Clean room, decent tv, comfy bed, convenient airport shuttle, and nice staff. We'll done!

I liked this place so much that I posted this Facebook status update about it back in October: "The Holiday Inn Express just south of SeaTac is my new favorite hotel for staying in Seattle without the cat. Friendly staff, clean, fridge and microwave, kitchenette sink, lots of electrical outlets, comfy bed and pillows, everything in the bathroom is where you expect it to be, typical breakfast buffet, coin washer & dryer down the hall. Clean, efficient, and offering everything you might need. That's what hotels should be."

In addition, it's convenient to the airport without being in the middle of all that activity. I found a decent Thai restaurant between the hotel and the airport where I got some takeout to enjoy back in my room. Like all airport areas, SeaTac isn't really a place for hanging out, but there are enough restaurants around to get you fed, and nearby Angle Lake Park is a pleasant place to go during the day.

Dear bluebonnetbeck,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel and post about us on facebook. That is very kind of you. I'm very glad that you were able to go to some of the local area attractions that our shuttle can take you to. Angle Lake is even more fun to visit in the summer time, they have added a nice little water attractions to it. We look forward to having you stay with us the next time you come to Seattle.

After a transatlantic flight it was nice to find good service. When we phoned for the bus it arrived very quickly and to be greeted on reception by Chris was a pleasure he had us in an upgraded room and was knowledgeable of local restaurant's and offered us a lift to the local ones on the shuttle bus. We decided to take a 15 minuet walk to Sharp's which was very good. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. In the morning shuttle drive drop us of for the hire car bus and explained how to cross the lanes to get to bus pick up point. Very good stay.
