We had a couple of days to visit Seattle for the first time. I was looking for something that wasn't fancy or expensive but would give us easy access to Seattle's attractions. The Belltown Inn provided what we wanted and more than we had hoped for. The location was great - easily accessed from SeaTac and within walking distance to almost all of Seattle's tourist attractions (Pioneer Town and the stadiums are a little far to walk but public transportation is excellent and inexpensive). The staff was friendly and helpful, giving us suggestions that were always spot on and handling a minor problem quickly and happily. The whole place was very clean and comfortable (none of the odd, slightly off smells I've experienced in much more expensive places). Good food is abundant within a few blocks (well, the breakfasts we had were just okay). There aren't a lot of the typical amenities, but we weren't looking for a spa or a place to do business, and they do have bikes. The business center gave us free access to the internet and to print our boarding passes for the return trip. However, the rooms ARE small. The desk could have been repositioned to make the room more functional. Even one child would have made it too crowded. The bathroom was also very small with little counter space and the blowdryer was inadequate (we saw later that you can get a blowdryer from the desk - I'd try it). But we weren't looking for luxury, we were looking for inexpensive, clean and comfortable and that is what we got. Some reviewers have complained about the neighborhood, which might be called funky and kind of hip. It's a city folks! We had no hassles from anyone and no panhandlers, though we did see a few people sleeping in building doorways. It's not perfect, but we will stay at the Belltown Inn again.
