Standard budget hotel with a smile
The staff were really welcoming when I arrived after 14 hours travelling time, I had a room on the ground floor, it was a bit dated, but there was little noise from around and there was tea and coffee facilities in the room. The hotel has a bar/restaurant where you can grab a bite to eat which while not amazing, is pretty much what you need when you first arrive.
The rooms are large, but in need of decoration, the location is great if you want to go into Bellevue, and you can grab a bus from there into Seattle, but that’ll take you anything from 40 mins to 2 hours depending on traffic.
Good for a business stay on a budget but wouldn’t stay for a tourist trip

A forgettable hotel, but no major complaints
I was comfortable here for a business conference, and the somewhat stale-air room (was fine). If you need a place to stay in Bellevue that’s a little more affordable than the rooms over on the West side of the 405, this place works fine. Just remember you get what you pay for.
That said, I had no issue with the efficiency of the staff or the property in general It’s not the Ritz Carlton, and it doesn’t pretend to be. Only a huge investment in updating would make this place better, and I doubt that’s in their economic business model.
Since there’s a complimentary breakfast, your expectation should only be for cold cereal and toasted items. I like the modest hot breakfast options I’ve had in much cheaper hotels, so I was a little disappointed in this regard.
I got a normal and reasonably comfortable night’s sleep here, and that’s the most important factor, right?
What a View!
Stayed here Sept 27, 2013. I got a fantastic rate on hotwire, was easy to find & great location with Whole Foods & many other stores within walking distance. As usually, from my experience, we were not treated any different for booking through hotwire, in fact we were given a room with an amazing city view (see my pic) The room was basic, but had everything we needed. There was a musty water smell near the bathroom which I did mention at the front desk, I asked for an air freshener which they didn’t have but they gladly offered to send someone to the room to freshen the air. I told her it wasn’t necessary, it wasn’t bothersome unless you were in the bathroom. The lobby had wifi & they had comfy chairs to sit, lobby looks nice too. Front desk was very helpful & even provided me a map with all the shopping malls near by. I would stay again, it suited my purpose perfectly.
Great stay in a remodeled hotel
I stayed at the Coast Bellevue at a reasonable rate in a beautiful suite. My cousins went there on their honeymoon 20 years ago and the hotel makes it seems update to date and new. The staff was great!

Worth it at Hotwire price, not worth published price
Comments that other people made about the high noise levels are completely accurate. If you’re a light sleeper you will definitely need a sleep aid of some sort, even toward the front of the hotel.
The room was comfortable and clean otherwise. Bed is very comfy.
Location is awesome, very convenient for access to other parts of Seattle area and there’s a huge Whole Foods right down the street for snacks, etc.
Staff was average, some were friendly and more helpful than others but none were outstanding. The only exceptionally bad service was at the bar.
Check your washcloths before you use them. Mine had someone else’s hair on it.
If you have diabetes or are trying to avoid carbs for any reason, skip the free breakfast. Literally ALL carbs.
