"Good experience. The E line bus dropped me off right in front of the motel. Stay here.2019-06-27"
"Not a good value. I could hear street noise at night, and one of the windows was broken. There were holes in the wall. No phone book. Someone called about my son smoking in the car, and the front desk clerk told him he had to go inside because he was creepy. Don't stay at this motel.2016-04-30"
"This motel beat paying for a high-priced downtown hotel. The room was clean and quiet, with good amenities. A $20 cab ride to the heart of the city, and you can't even park downtown for that.2015-08-04"
"Good location. I've stayed at this motel a number of times. It's basic but has good Internet access and the room had a microwave, fridge, and flat-screen TV. The bed was comfortable. Free breakfast provided. This is a decent budget option.2017-12-04"

"Convenient to the port, but not worth the price. The hotel was old and dated, and the room wasn't the cleanest. Nice staff. Breakfast was OK. The shuttle driver didn't know where he was going. We won't go back.2016-05-23"

The continental breakfast had many choices and the eating area was nice and cozy. Loved being able to walk to the train station and Century Link Field. A great little getaway.2017-01-10"
"My family had a comfortable stay at this hotel. Our 2-bedroom suite slept 6; it was like having an apartment, with a living room, 2 TVs, 2 bathrooms, and a small, fully-equipped kitchen. The staff was accommodating, and we were able to store our luggage until our cruise later in the afternoon. Breakfast was a plus.2016-09-01"

"Just a 10-minute walk from the Science Center, IMAX Theater, and Space Needle. The kids enjoyed the pool. Good breakfast with a variety of hot and cold selections. The Holiday Inn restaurant next to the hotel had a small but good menu. 2017-04-09"

"Great front desk service; the clerks offered friendly conversation and personal advice. The breakfast food was surprisingly good, and it was great having coffee and tea available 24 hours a day.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
