“Don't judge a book by its cover”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

While the outside of the building looks a little old, the inside is modern and welcoming. Staff is great, they serve an excellent free breakfast (a little bit better than normal). Guest laundry. Pretty decent location in Seattle. Free parking (which is almost unheard of in Seattle - we stayed at another place that charged $35 per night). Excellent value for the money.

Arrived the Saturday before our cruise at 3 (party of 9) and our five rooms were all ready. Got checked in quickly and headed out to explore the city. This hotel is a decent walk to the Needle and Seattle Center, also, the waterfront. Very nice room that appears to be recently updated. Food options in the area. Nice breakfast spread. Front desk personnel very nice and helpful with transportation to and from airport and pier. New computers for airline check-in and such. Very comfortable lobby to wait in. Cannot find one thing bad to say.

Great location for the price. Within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and major attractions including the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. The room was large and the decor was updated and modern. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We booked two rooms next to each other for the Rock and Roll marathon in Seattle. There were 6 of us. The rooms were very clean, check-in was a breeze, free parking was very handy. The location of this hotel was such that you could just about walk anywhere you wanted to go. Its less than 1 mile from the Seattle Center. As far as the hotel is concerned, we all stayed last year at the Westin (all of us were disappointed) At La Quinta, the value for what you get is amazing. I have already booked next years stay at this location.( And to top it off, breakfast is included. )

This is an older La Quinta. The building itself is probably over 40 years old, therefore some of the areas are really starting to show their age. The hallways seemed dark and musty, almost reminiscent of a motel and the exterior didn't look very inviting. With that said, I found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The free lemonade and cookies were much appreciated. Also, the rooms seemed very updated and the beds were super comfy. The breakfast was lacking a little variety but it got the job done. Overall, it's a decent hotel in Seattle.

I stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites for three nights in June. The staff greeted me warmly at check in and in less than ten minutes I was in my room. This was great because I'd just spent 24 long hours on an Amtrak. But that's another review for another day.
I had a king suite at a reasonable price which included a king bed, dresser, closet and TV in one small room and then a much larger room with a pull out couch, comfy arm chair, table with two chairs, dresser w/ hidden refrigerator and another TV. The two sinks were outside the lavatory which included the usual shower/tub and toilet. I was on the fourth floor and could see the Space Needle from my room.
The room was clean and quiet, and even though the hotel allows dogs, I rarely heard one. There is a park a block away which is great for those dog owners.
Great things about this hotel for the price you pay: Free parking in downtown Seattle! Free wifi. and free breakfast.. (Waffles, hard boiled eggs, hot and cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, the best raisin bread ever, other breads for toast, juice and excellent coffee.)
Location, Location, Location! We walked ten minutes to get to the Space Needle and Seattle Center and then on another day, fifteen minutes to get to Pike's Market. We never used the car. The neighborhood was fine, with tons of great restaurants. I was there with my best buddy from Jr. High School, both of us female and over 60, and we never felt unsafe even walking around at night.
Seattle is a beautiful city. This La Quinta made it even more special.
