The Coast Bellevue although conveniently located is not a place I would ever stay again. Pros: Hotel Staff Cons: Internet, TV, Room, Bed, Shower, Decor. The internet is poor at best (just because it is free shouldn’t mean poor connection), the TV has poor connection and 1/2 the channels don’t come in, the room was clean but dated, the bed was a total mess (probably the original mattress from when the hotel was built in the 70s). The shower head is placed in the middle of the wall and would be great if you are 5′ tall otherwise the water hits you in the stomach. The only reason to stay here is if there is absolutely no other option in the area and you don’t want to sleep in your car.

BELLEVUE BUSINESS TRIP
Great place to stay
Good location for doing business in Bellevue, WA
Very polite employees
This was my first time staying at this location and I will definitely recommend it to others.
I extended my stay at this location as I had further business obligations that came up in the area

Below average 3-star
The hotel is a fairly old facility and definitely below average 3-star, and is over-priced during summer.
Facility: Facility is old, ceiling is low, rooms are small, overall you can tell the facility has been there for decades. There are two elevators, one in the lobby and the other at the end of the building. One day we actually saw the elevator in the lobby got stuck while there were people inside, and it took the maintenance a while to get people out. So you can tell how old it is. Rooms are smaller than standard, we had a one king bed in the room and you would still feel very crowed and no place for anything. Of course for all the old facilities, the walls do not block sound, so you can hear everything about people next door and they can also hear you. You could just wish you have a quite neighbor.
Travel with infant: We requested a crib on our reservation, and I even called the hotel ahead of time to make sure they have crib (I was told to just put on our reservation), when we arrived at the hotel, I was told they do not even have crib in their entire building. Instead they sent a roller bed to my room, when I asked again, they said I requested a roller bed on my reservation, and the staffs were like laughing at me. So my one year old son had to sleep on our bed in between my wife and I for the whole week we were there, and you can imagine none of us had a single good night sleep. The advise is, if you have an infant, don’t stay here, because although the hotel advertises they have cribs on all travel websites, the reality is they do not have crib.
Breakfast: The hotel does offer free/hot/continental/buffet breakfast, which is definitely a plus. The staffs are very friendly there. One minor thing is they sever the exactly same thing every single day, I remember seeing one reviewer complained about that after two weeks stay, well, we stayed for one week and really didn’t feel having breakfast at the end. Don’t get me wrong, the breakfast is good, but if can offer some variety would be much much better.
Location: The hotel is located right off the free way but without the noise of the free way, and is very close to Bellevue downtown area (within walking distance although we didn’t walk over there). So the location is very good for most travelers. One concern is I am not sure if it is a good/safe area at night, you can hear multiple police cars with siren on came to the area EVERY night, and you could hear the siren stopped at very close by location, almost like it stopped in front of the building. Of course they could stop at the car dealers across the street (there are many car dealers on the same street).
Overall, it is an old facility and definitely needs improvements in many areas.
Not up to my standards
Bath tub was not clean when we checked in. We had a baseball game to get to and leave hotel by 7:30 breakfast was at 7:00 but the hot food was not out on time. Customer service was good they were very friendly!
Hotel was really good, but the wifi was terrible!! It was extremely slow and frustrating. I wouldn’t stay here again simply because of the poor wifi. The restaurant and service otherwise was really good.
