An extra clean and simple hotel. Casual with a free-flowing feel with great style. Very West Coast I would say.
Pros: Clean, free shuttle to/from Downtown Seattle, free wiFi and gated parking, concealed mini fridge and microwave in room.Indoor pool open 24 hrs.
Cons: No room safe, hard to find
My family (wife and 2 young daughters) stayed for 2 nights. Coming from Vancouver we wanted to spend a couple of says in Seattle for a weekend visit. We already had stayed at the Mukilteo Silver Cloud Inn so we didn't think twice when it was time to book.
I have to say that this is probably one of the very few hotels I've stayed in where we've felt compelled to take our shoes off instinctively just like home without even thinking it. Carpet looked brand new and really thick. Extra point!
Room was simple and unassuming but it looked like it was carefully decorated. It had a great thing that it had a mini fridge and a microwave inside the TV cabinet. Plenty of stationary and pens (if you have young kids you know how useful this is!).
Had a sink outside bathroom as well as inside. Average bathtub and Aveda brand toiletries. Have to say that the bathroom too looked like it was deeply cleaned.
Balcony window was a double door that opened in full swing.
The hotel has a gated parking just like the type that new high rises have. You have to wave your room key in front of a sensor to open the overhead gate. Parking garage is big. We never found ourselves out of a parking spot.
Has an indoor pool that is open 24 hours. Even though the water was definitely not warm for me , neither my 7 or my 4 year old's seemed to care. Pool area also has a hot tub which was a nice thing after an almost polar swim of 45 minutes with my little ducklings.
Hotel staff were very courteous and nice. They were always accommodating to our needs.
The hotel has a shuttle service to/from Downtown Seattle. They have several drop off points (space needle, Pike's Market etc..) which is extremely useful if you're visiting Seattle.
The hotel sits in a strip just across a marina parallel to the I5 and is not very easy to find if you're not from the area or you find yourself without a GPS.
All in all The Silvercloud chain is ALWAYS a guarantee if you're looking for something a simple and inexpensive but with lots of style and first class customer service.
Short and sweet: This is like a 4 star hotel who graduated from finishing school.
