Alotta bang for your buck. A great location and nice free buffet every morning. The place is not like the major hotels chains. We were using the hotel fridge in the room and it went out. They replace the fridge and food inside within the hour. Also I don’t indulge but if you do there is a Marijuana dispensary across the street.
Decent hotel, nice staff, good location
As mentioned, the hotel itself is somewhat dated (smells musty depending where you are, can hear others in room next door – hopefully you have no\quiet neighbours) however, they appear to be in the midst of a renovation to update the hotel. That being said, free wireless, parking and breakfast and 10-12 minutes from downtown Seattle make up for it. Staff was very nice. Rooms were basic (had a fridge which was nice) and appeared to be relatively clean. Close to whole foods (and chik fil a!) and 1 minute from downtown Bellevue. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to staying in pricey downtown Sesttle (and surrounding area), you could do worse and would recommend if you are looking to save a few bucks.

We weren’t expecting any bells and whistles after reading reviews from other travellers but unfortunately, our experience fell below our already low expectations. On the day we arrived, one of the elevators wasn’t working but there was no sign indicating so. After a loooong wait, we decided to take the stairs up to our room on the 6th floor. Upon entering our room, we were greeted by a strong unpleasant odour which we endured all night long. We kept the window open to no avail. The water in the shower randomly switched from hot to cold. The bed was adequate but the unpleasant smell made it difficult to sleep. Free breakfast was satisfactory but nothing to write home about.
Nice stay / Clean Rooms / Friendly Staff
They did great, insured I was catered to. Had no problems, staff was curtious and rooms were accomodating and comforable. Restaurant had good food and nice slections, ammenities and location was conveniant.
Reasonable rate but very old hotel
The hotel is in the beginning of a remodel and badly needs it. I could not recommend staying here unless the surrounding hotels are just too pricey.
The parking – Open lot with free parking but the surrounding area is a little sketchy.
The check in – The front desk reception was OK but not very friendly. They did inform us of the work being done to the hotel so we were prepared for the noise but it would have been nice to know before we made the reservation.
The room – Very old and not well cleaned. The bed was completely unsatisfactory and backed each time one of us would move. The room reeked of overly sweet bug spray or some type of room freshener. We had to turn the air conditioner on and leave the room for a few hours as it was too late to rebook at another hotel.
The lounge – The bartendress was a delight but the bar food was very poorly presented though edible. The onion rings were the saving grace.
OVERALL – We will not stay here again – perhaps in a year once the remodel is finished and the beds are replaced.
