“Very Nice Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

From the outside the hotel doesn't look like much, however inside is unexpected value! Room was beautiful. Bathroom was clean and well stocked. Bedding was amazing...wanted to take the sheet home with me. Room smelled nice and was very comfortable.

We picked this hotel based on location and value, and were exceptionally pleased with both. Our two main touring interests (in our one day pre-cruise stay) were Pike Place market and the Space Needle/Chihuly museum, and La Quinta Downtown was walking distance from both. The rooms were possibly the largest I've ever stayed in and looked to be brand new. Our rooms both had balconies, a separate area for the two sinks in each room, and a shower/bath and toilet in a room off the sink area.

Breakfast was included in the value-priced cost of the room and included many options not usually associated with included breakfasts, like yogurt and fresh-made waffles.

With all of these benefits, it came as no surprise that both the overall cleanliness of the hotel, and the service, were both also excellent. In short, if we ever find ourselves back in Seattle (we've been several times, already), this will be our hotel of choice.

Seeing the outside of the hotel I was a little nervous at first, but once inside all fears were allayed. The hotel is extremely clean, modern, roomy and comfortable. The staff was knowledgeable of the city and gave us great tips on dining and sightseeing (including a $10 coupon to a local eatery that was delicious). Staff was friendly, kind and extremely courteous. The beds in the room were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was pristine. Free cookies, water and lemonade in the lobby and breakfast in the morning included many delicious hot entrees and make-your-own waffles.

It's also in a great location. Within walking distance to the Space Needle, dining, the Chihuly Gardens and more. Highly recommend staying here.

This is an older hotel that has been upgraded and it is wonderful. The rooms were clean and roomy. The view was not great but acceptable. Our room had a balcony and that was great. There was a Whole Foods a block away. The whole Hotel was clean with a beautiful Lobby. The elevators were fast for an older hotel. It is 7 stories high so from different places you get a good view. The hotel is only about 5 or 6 blocks. The neighborhood seems to be pretty good though we were not out at night. The staff were wonderful and very polite and helpful. I can't say enough to praise them. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed for 2 days this week and I was pleasantly surprised. The room as very spacious and the beds were comfortable. The first thing I noticed was a large jug of iced lemonaide in the lobby that was quite good. Our room was not ready but they held our luggage while we roamed around. The hotel had a laundry room, workout room and a great breakfast. The place across the street is a little sketchy but the rest of the neighborhood was fun. Found a wonderful Italian place close by for pizza.

Room Tip: You can walk to the space needle.

It may not look like much from the outside, but this place was great! Walking distance from everything (Needle, Pike Market, shopping...), beautiful interiors, awesome staff (friendly, free upgrade!), free breakfast daily, a little market to buy snacks...free lemonade and water station, computers...what more could you want?! And no bed bugs...that's a plus, too. I would most definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 3 nights, April 14-17. Arrived Sunday afternoon to find a huge group of choir members checking out. No rooms ready for me to check-in. However, staff put my bags in a locked back room and called me a cab so i could go to Pike Place market. When i got back, was upgraded from a queen room to a king room on top floor. Service excellent, breakfast good, location in downtown good. Was unfamiliar with the computer system so Joseph from front desk got boarding pass for airline printed out for me the day before I left. Nice to have mini-fridge and microwave in room. Good value for reasonable price.

Room Tip: ask for top floor, balcony room facing west
