Coast Bellevue Hotel
Decent hotel, a bit expensive for what you get
This hotel was reasonably clean and comfortable, but it was more along the lines of what you would expect at a good quality, clean two star hotel like a Days Inn, rather than something along the lines of Doubletree or Hyatt Place. The breakfast was serviceable but not great. Larkspur Landing is a better choice in Bellevue, but I believe it was out of our price range for the summer months.
Nice and Basic - Maybe a few improvements
We were at the Coast Bellevue for several days. If there was a rating between average and good – this would be it. This is a reasonably priced hotel (as hotels in the area go), well-located to Seattle (by quick freeway access) and to local shops, malls and restaurants. The lobby is nice and the staff are very friendly and try to be helpful to all – good multi-taskers with a line up at the counter! The rooms could be a little more updated – but again – acceptable. They are somewhat small – but certainly satisfactory. The exterior feels a bit sad – wanting. The free breakfast was fine – nothing special, but certainly, again, sufficient (at breakfast, the woman who was refilling the offerings was wearing a “hoodie” which I thought was slightly unprofessional but maybe she was cold.) This hotel is ideal for business travel on a budget – but perhaps not so much for the family. No complaints about cleanliness or the staff. So, all in all, friendly, basic and adequate.
Favorite Bellevue Hotel
This is my favorite hotel to stay at in Bellevue. Easy access to the freeway. They have nice clean rooms. Make sure you ask for a room with a big flat screen. The beds are comfortabke. The water pressure is good. They have a nice restaurant, that is never packed. The $5 happy hour appetizers are great! And they have a nice pool.
The nineties called, they want their hotel back
We stayed there in a loft suite bed upstairs with a sofa sleeper downstairs. The room hadn’t been updated in quite some time and in was in dire need of refurbishment. Needed everything from a new bed to new furniture. The weather was a little warm for the Seattle area while we were there and the air conditioning couldn’t keep the upstairs part of the room cool at night plus the ceiling fan didn’t work and had dust all over it! We got back from a Mariners game and it was around 10pm and we were hungry so we went to the restaurant/bar and were told the cook went home already so they couldn’t serve us. I ended up going next door to Denney’s and it was packed with people just like us from the Hotel. Lots of lost revenue guys! Anyway the front desk staff were good and professional but this hotel is in serious need of an update. I felt bad for the staff because there isn’t much they can do until the owners decide to spend some money and renovate the hotel. I don’t get to Seattle that often but next time I’ll stay at a different hotel.

Not good value
We stayed at the Coast in Bellevue this past weekend for a family get away. The location was convenient and quiet however that’s where the good ends. While the “sparkling lobby” has been recently renovated, the rest of the property, although clean, is dated and showing its age. The showers were probably the worst feature as at just 5’5″ I had to do a back bend to wash my hair. We booked on the advance rate however, even with the discount, we didn’t feel we received good value for our money.
