“Great Value, excellant room layout for families.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

I agree with the reviewers who said the neighborhood isn't the best. However the hotel is in excellant condition and the staff was great. The breakfast was mediocre, but if you looked there was oatmeal, fruit, yogurt and hard boiled eggs. The room configuration was the best I've seen for a small room with 2 beds. The bathroom/shower was separate from the sink/sink bar and it was all hidden behind the wall with the beds. Ideal when some are still sleeping. Free parking in downtown Seattle is also a plus.

the hotel itself was fine and the breakfast was very good, although all processed foods, if you have allergies, bring some stuff but the area was not the best - my daughter and i were walking all over as we came in from a cruise and live in ny daytime was fine, but coming back at night was a little "sketchy" and i will go just about anywhere part of the problem - did not see a single police officer or car the whole 3 days we were there and we walked all over - pikes marketplace, mariners field, space needle hotel is a good deal, but take cab back at night - OH - take the Squalamie Falls Wine Tour!!! a great day!!!

The outside of the hotel leaves you wondering what you have booked, but when you walk into the lobby it blows your mind! This place is so new, modern, clean and welcoming on the inside. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is also free on-site parking, which is a huge plus in downtown Seattle! Free breakfast, too! We stay here every year and have never been disappointed. The staff is great and very helpful. The location is incredible--walk to the space needle, Pike's, restaurants and shopping, and public transportation is just a street away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

Like all the previous reviews, I booked this hotel based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly, professional and extremely helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and even though we were right by the elevator, quiet. The only noise was from outside and the street sirens. Breakfast was good although on the weekend, it got extremely busy and some of the food had run out when we were there. When we came back a little later, the food was restocked. We had already eaten though. Internet service was sketchy in the evening. At times, I could not log on and gave up. The lobby had two brand new computers with mega screens. If we really needed internet, we could log on for free in the lobby so the minor inconvenience of not getting it in our room was no big deal.
When I come back to Seattle, this will be my hotel of choice. It is a short walk to the Space Needle and a bit further to Pike and downtown but not too far. We parked our car (free parking) for the entire time and walked everywhere. What a great bonus!! Loved, loved the La Quinta and will be back with my family!!!!

We had booked our room and then found the room for a cheaper price. I followed the online instructions to rebook the room. I recieved confirmation for the rebooking at the lower price, but when I went to check in they had the higher price. I showed them my confirmation and the issue was quickly resolved. It may have been a computer glitch...

Other than that...everything was as expected. We have stayed at this hotel before and really like it for the location, free parking and breakfast. Clean, comfortable room in a great location.

At first glance, the exterior will make you think that this is an old property lacking in modern touches. However, the interior has been recently renovated and is very nice. The staff were helpful and welcoming and getting a welcome email from the manager prior to the trip was a nice touch, too. Free parking, but extremely tight spaces if you drive anything bigger than a compact. Walk over to the Brave Horse Tavern for a bite to eat in a Tom Douglas restaurant. We will stay here in the future!
