My husband and I stayed at 11th Ave B&B in August 2013. We took the Link Light Rail from the SeaTac airport to the Westlake Station. The moment we stepped out of the train station and onto the sidewalk a cab stopped. Be sure to tell the cab driver the address is 11th ave EAST. In the house we enjoyed and took full advantage of their den area FILLED with brochures, bus schedules, restaurant information, maps, and two computers with available printer. The location from the B&B to the bus stop is Wonderful! If you exit the B&B, walk left on 11th Ave E., cross E. John and walk up to your right about a block you will find the bus stop. At the time of our stay Bus 43 took us downtown, Bus 8 took us to the Seattle Center. I brought a roll of quarters and $25.00 in ones so I could have exact change for the bus. Don't expect change! Bus fares ranged $2.50-$2.75 depending on peak hours. Many times we walked down the hill in the morning to our destination, then took the bus back at the end of the day when our feet were tired. Just hop on the same bus number to get back. The buses have an automated sign that lights up and announces the next stop. The bus stop back to the B&B on route 43 and route 8 is 12th ave/E.John. Breakfast alternated days between egg dishes and pancakes/french toast options and was always delicious! During the day there was chocolates, nuts, fruit and cold water always available on the main level. The employees were around and only a phone call away if we had questions. They stayed rather busy, and we were fine to not have someone hovering over us. We most enjoyed our conversations with other guests in the den and at breakfast. Having the time to sit down and converse about the city or where someone is from is what makes staying at a B&B special. We stayed in the Ruby Room, which is the one room without an attached bathroom. The Ruby Room is at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor. The bathroom is directly across the hall when you walk out of the room...so easily accessible. Maybe not advised, I often darted between the bathroom and bedroom in a towel.. take your key or make sure your partner can open the door for you. On our last day in the city we walked to pick up our rental car, then drove it back to the B&B to load our bags. The streets are packed with cars 24/7 so it is VERY nice that there is parking at the 11th Ave. Inn. If we find ourselves back in Seattle we will stay here again.
