“friendly staff, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I stayed in Seattle recently for a business trip and selected this hotel for its price and free breakfast.
I was a little taken aback when I arrived because there wasn't much happening on the street aside from two other hotels and a couple of parking lots, but I was pleasantly surprised when I went inside. The decor is vintage, a bit different from the other La Quinta hotels I have stayed at but appropriate for the hotel's setting close to downtown. There is a large fish tank and a couple of computers for printing boarding passes, etc.
I was equally impressed with the spacious and clean room, which included a desk for working and plenty of counter space for getting ready in the morning. Best yet, the hotel has HBO and free WiFi.
The next morning I was again surprised by better-than-standard La Quinta breakfast fare in a separate cafe space.
Best of all was the staff. I had a hard time getting a cab for my business appointment, and the front desk staff went above and beyond to make sure I arrived on time. Every interaction I had with the staff was friendly.
The one downside about the place is that, again, it is a little in the middle of nowhere. While downtown and a short walk to the Space Needle and shopping districts, it was almost impossible to find a restaurant open for lunch within blocks of the hotel. (Tip: The Whole Foods on 9th is reasonable for a grab-and-go sandwich or a cup of coffee.)

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the lobby. Lots of amenities. The room was clean everyday. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

I have now stayed at this hotel several times, and I plan to again the next time I'm in Seattle. I was a little leery driving up for the first time because it's an older building and there isn't a lot "going on" right around the building. I quickly found that this is one book you should not judge by it's cover!! The staff is superb!! From the moment you walk in, to the time you leave, you feel welcomed and are treated as a guest in an old friend's home. They are always friendly and are quick to help with whatever they can to ensure you have a wonderful stay! The decor is fun, modern, and cozy. The rooms are very clean, and although a bit on the smaller side for some of the hotel rooms I've stayed in, they are definitely not cramped or crowded. The showers have great pressure and a unique double head feature with multiple water pattern settings that allows for adjustment as the user desires. The beds are AAAHHHmazingly comfortable and almost make you want to stay inside instead of getting out to enjoy the city! The location is such that you can walk to most of the things you would want to do downtown, or take a quick cab ride. The free parking at the hotel is a great amenity in a city where many hotels charge upward of $30 for parking! There is a lobby computer station, for-purchase snack/drink bar, free WiFi, decent continental breakfast, and fresh lemonade and water near the elevator 24/7. I will be recommending this hotel to everyone I know going to the Seattle area!!

I traveled to Seattle for a conference and stayed at the La Quinta with a couple of my classmates. I have to say I was really impressed for the price! We had a big room with plenty of space. The beds were comfy and the shower pressure was great. Breakfast was okay, nothing too fancy. Location wise, I walked from the La Quinta to see the Space Needle, visit the Convention Center, see Pike Market, and go on the Underground Tour. Getting to the hotel from the Link Light Rail stop at 6th and Pine is probably a 7 minute walk, which was perfect given that I came in close to midnight. I visited friends who stayed at pricier hotels a few blocks closer to the city center and would not have traded rooms with them.

Stayed for a few nights in the studio suite. This is an updated older hotel situated in between downtown and the space needle. We were able to walk to our destinations (a reasonable distance for a family that walks) to downtown including the market and the needle.

Though not in the fancy part of town, for what you get for the price, I would recommend this place.

The breakfast had a good offering. The daily supply of lemon water in the lobby and cookies were a nice touch.

Beds were very comfy and the room updates hit the mark. In short we didn’t expect much and were surprised with receiving much higher than expected.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front as the rear looks into another building.
