“Weird Beds!”
Reviewed September 21, 2005

Loved this hotel, brilliant value, large rooms with above average kitchenette and bathrooms kept lovely and clean. Slightly strange beds though...... small and not 100% comfortable. Fab rooftop terrace more than makes up for this, wish I was there now sipping a cold drinky!

The lower Queen Anne area seemed very laidback with a good selection of bars and great value places to eat, Racha Noodles in particular. We were very glad we choose to stay here instead of downtown Seattle.

Just got back from my trip to Seattle. I stayed at this hotel. It's in a good spot 20 minute walk from hotel down to Qwest Field to watch the Seattle Seahawks play. 5 Minute walk to the Space Needle. Safeway just next door to get your bits and pieces. Rooms are fine and bright. What else are you looking for in a hotel? It had a comfy bed nice shower/bath, fridge, microwave. It was clean and you got loads of towels. Plus free internet access in the lobby. Staff very friendly. I will be back at this hotel on my next trip.

Interesting neighborhood- convenient to cultural activities and tourist sites.
Interesting restaurants and shops nearby.
Hotel is spartan but in excellent shape.
Staff was helpful and parking is convenient.
A short ride to I-5 for travel to north or south locations.Great view from room.
Would certainly stay here again!

Excellent location - a very short walk to the Seattle Center, one block to the bus stop, plus a Movie Theater, grocery stores, restaurants are all within a few blocks of the hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. Hotel is located in a very convenient, upper middle class neighborhood. I would defiantly stay here again.

The positive points-
Location: The Mediterranean Inn is located in the best part of Seattle. I have visited Seattle at least a dozen times and this area is perfect for couples or families.
Amenities: The hotel offers very nice kitchenettes with microwaves. If you get a chance- take the elevator to the roof and take in an amazing view of the city.
The negative points- the bed was the smallest and most uncomfortable to sleep in with someone else. The room would be fine for one person or two very small people.

The bathroom was quite "institutional" with large open garbage cans, ugly hospital like flooring, and tacky plastic moldings around the bathtub.

There was only one small mirror in the room- in the bathroom.

I won't return to this hotel but if I was a young single "20 something" student this hotel would be fine.

We stayed at the Mediterranean for 3 nights this summer. The staff were very helpful on arrival and gave us a key to the underground carpark ($12 per night) without us checking in. The first room we were given was ok but the bed was a pullout and not very big. I phoned down to reception to ask for a bigger bed (my husband is 6'4") and were told that was a fullsize!! 2 minutes later the phone rang and we were given a room with a queen size bed. The room was clean and the fridge was very handy for chilling beer (complimentary cokes a nice touch) The roof terrace has fabulous views (especially good at night) and the free internet access was a real bonus. The location of the hotel is ideal, Safeway supermarket around the corner, Seattle Centre a few blocks over and bars/restaurants within walking distance. The walk to downtown (Pike Place market etc) is about 20 minutes through Belltown which has some nice restaurants too. The monorail is a quick way of getting downtown though if your feet are aching!!
Overall, a good value for money, city hotel.

This small hotel is not luxurious, but it is impeccably mantained, and it has everything for almost everyone. Located two blocks from the Space Needle, it is walking distance to great restaurants: from a reliable hamburger joint accross the street, to great pizza a block away, to every conceivable ethnic food, as well as fine dinning establishments. The rooms are smallish, but functional, with a sink, fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. There is one supermarket accross the street, and another two blocks away. Parking is available at a very reasonable cost, under the building. The hotel has no restaurant, but there is the ubiquitous Starbucks, connected to the lobby. I would avoid it like the plague! Seattle has dozens of better coffeehouses, some of them part of a bakery. Ask the very friendly and efficient desk staff for directions to "Macrina", a justifiably famous bakery, walking distance from the hotel. If you add a nice lobby, complimentary computer access, a small gym, a coin operated laundry room, and the "drop-dead-gorgeous" view from the rooftop, you can easilly see why the Mediterranean Inn made our six day vacation in Seattle, an added bonus!
