Charming little spot in West Seattle. The grounds were spotless, the room was bigger than I thought it'd be, the beds were comfy. Lots of choices for breakfast. The staff were awesome - very attentive and kind. Great location. We'll definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Our room off Alaska was a bit loud - sirens and buses and such.

I just love responding to reviews like yours. It is just great to hear that you were treated well by the staff since that is really what brings guests back to stay again and again. Yes we are a recently renovated motor inn, and with that comes a little bit of road noise and outside entrances. We do try to overcome that by providing a clean, convenient and inexpensive alternative to being downtown. Thank you and we hope to see you soon.

Rooms small but recently upgraded with good block out blinds. Quiet and Clean. Excellent staff. Continental breakfast provided. Great location to take ferry across to Pike Street market. Near California Ave - fun shopping. Lots of great restaurants in this district. Used this hotel as I was visiting family in West Seattle. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to The Grove. Yes, we are a recently renovated motor lodge and some of the units are smaller, but we also offer a few suites including 2 one-bedroom units for those looking for something a bit larger. We really make up for some of the physical "motor lodge" feel with our clean and comfortable rooms, walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in "The Junction" and of course our excellent guest service.
We hope to see you again when visiting the area.

A friend and I stayed at the grove for three nights during a graduation trip, and I have no complaints. It's a couple blocks from downtown West Seattle with restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops in walking distance. Downtown Seattle is only minuets away!!!! Clean, spacious and wonderful.

A perfectly fine hotel for a visit to West Seattle! In terms of amenities, I would put it on a par with Hampton Suites. The desk staff was VERY helpful, especially with regards to receiving and storing my "lost" luggage when the airline finally found it that night. I would definitely stay here again!

Thank you for the comparison to Hampton Suites. The Grove is a neatly renovated motor inn that the staff and I take great pride in by offering great guest service and reasonable rates. I am extremely happy that the staff was able to provide assistance with your lost luggage.
We hope you will choose The Grove for your lodging needs the next time you are in the area.

I was looking for a hotel in Seattle where I could park my car and take the bus to a three-day training downtown. The Grove was perfect. Great little motel located in West Seattle. Right on the bus line so I could hope on the bus each morning/evening and be where I needed to be in 20 minutes without the hassle of traffic and parking. Added bonus was that the hotel was lovely, quiet, with great staff. Also walking distance to several amazing restaurants. The room was clean - better than several of the 'high-end' hotels I've stayed at recently. I parked right outside my room. Had a complimentary continental breakfast each day that was basic but excellent - only think missing for me was peanut butter! I couldn't have been happier for choosing this motel - right place, right location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the street. No elevator so if you have climbing challenges as for first floor...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of The Grove. The staff and I take great pride in the fact that we are the only lodging choice in West Seattle and look forward to providing the best in guest service and affordable and clean accommodations.
As you pointed out our location really makes it easy to get to and from Seattle and the local "hotspots" as well, and with the free parking and lower tax rate it does make since to stay at The Grove.
I am sorry we did not have peanut butter for you. It is an item that we do keep in the breakfast area. I will be sure to keep it in supply so you will have it for your next stay.
We do look forward to another visit from you.

West Seattle is the best area of the city, and The Grove is the only hotel in this beautiful area. The hotel itself is a throwback to the 1960's--in a good way. No-nonsense, no frills, but spacious, clean rooms and a hotel staff that cares. Ten minutes to downtown Seattle, or a short walk to the heart of West Seattle's arsty commercial district. There's a well-equipped YMCA one block away, and the hotel has a special deal for guests. We will stay here often.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with external entry. They are larger and airier.

Our daughter lives in West Seattle so we have been staying at location for years. The new owners did a awesome job of transforming it to a beautiful and reasonably priced place to stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, parking is free. Love the neighborhood.
