Friendly staff, rundown building

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: affordable, friendly and helpful staff
Cons: the walls, ceiling, floor, and bed
I feel bad saying anything negative, especially since the front desk staff was friendly and helpful, but I would not stay here again. Maybe I'm overparticular, but I wished I had shelled out a little more for something less rundown. Granted it mostly did the job as a cheap place near the train station that I could crash at for a few hours after a concert before catching a train early the next morning. However, the bed was so gross I didn't even take my clothes off, and didn't really sleep. The walls and ceiling and floor are in a serious state of disrepair, especially in the bathroom. Bad enough that I decided to forgo using the shower. And not that I saw any evidence, but I felt compelled to place my closed bag on top of the TV hutch to prevent any unwanted passengers crawling in and coming home with me. Perhaps that's not fair since I never saw or felt any bites, but I couldn't help thinking it very possible with the overall condition of the building and bed. Again, I don't like talking this place down. The cleaning staff does the best it can with what it has to work with. And the place doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is: a cheap, old, conveniently located, rundown hotel. Perhaps this is all you're looking for, but if you think you might be as particular as me, you might want to consider your options if you can afford something else.

It's nothing fancy, but perfectly fine

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Old timey feel
Cons: Everything's a bit worn.
It's nothing fancy, but perfectly fine. It has an old timey feel. The bed was comfortable, but everything is a bit worn. Good location and price.

old hotel

Posted Oct 10, 2014
the wifi could not make it out of the lobby, the towels were very old, the pillows had no substance, and the parking was up the street for 37$per night.

Decent

Posted Oct 6, 2014
The place has a lot of charm, was worth the price (compared to the exhorbitant cost of nearby downtown hotels). Amenities were few: the ice machine was broken, so the front desk clerk had to take your ice bucket downstairs to the restaurant for ice. The water temperature of the shower was unreliable (but serviceable). And: the television only offered about seven stations, none of them popular (I think I got NBC, MSNBC, and FX). But it was clean and comfortable enough.

Do NOT book this property!

Posted Oct 3, 2014
Pros: convenient location
Cons: overall cleanliness of the entire property, carpets cleaned, screens on the windows, better lighting in hallways, maintained elevator, in room wifi
Location: walking distance to Pike Market and Space Needle is a bit further but still walkable
I am a very simple person when it comes to most things- hotel rooms being one of them. A clean room and bathroom are basic requirements and at this place not even those were met. I pre-paid and my reservation was non-refundable, and that didn't stop me from leaving the hotel 20 minutes after I checked in to find an acceptable place. The wall paper in the bathroom was peeling from the floor up and I didn't look closely but could imagine the wood below was likely wet. The light fixture over the shower was cracked and a piece actually broken off. The room smelled musty/stale and might not have been as bad if the window had a screen it in and the window could be kept opened safely. The carpet was badly stained through the entire room and the corner between the side table and wall had significant dust/dirt accumulation. TV made a buzzing sound on each channel, but that was the least of my concerns. With all that was visibly dirty and not kept up I didn't dare lift the comforter to look at the sheets. I sat on the night stand to search for a new hotel and luckily the Paramount had a room for the night and luckily it was close enough to just walk there. This property needs serious updating, cleaning and continuous maintenance. The girl behind the desk was very nice but when I left and said I couldn't stay here for my 2 nights she failed to ask why. Didn't really matter to her/the management it seems.

Would not recommend this to anyone for the price

Posted Oct 2, 2014
It charges over $120 and is a creepy shady motel. Smells n has no customer service. I walked in and walked out. Lost the money and had to look for another place to stay.

Great price for the location!

Posted Sep 26, 2014
Pros: Location and price, friendliness of staff.
Location: Short downhill walk to Pike Place market and the harbor. Easy to get the ferry to Bainbridge Island.
In downtown Seattle, you would expect to spend 2 or 3 times as much as Hotel Seattle charges! It was our second time there, and we will be back.

Booked this motel bcuz the photos made it look really nice. Needless to say when we got to the motel we check in and were told we had to park at a parking garage 2 blocks away (that was another extra added expense we didn't expect) then we ride a outdated elevator up 8 floors to our room that was even worse then expected. Bedding and tv looked like something from my great grandmas house no ac no screens on windows poor lighting and reeked of stail cigarette smoke
