This was something diffeerent
Posted Aug 8, 2016
I should have guessed this was going to be a place with the barest of amenities when I stepped into the mini-mart to check in . The pleasant gentleman at the counter gave me the keys to my "room" that was small ans cell-like. It had a bed, a chair, a sink and a lamp that did not work. But, I was too tired to ask for a replacement. The room was noisy and stuffy. Still, if you are traveling and don't care much about spending time in a room, and prefer to be outdoors and sightseeing, this place may be suitable. There is no elevator, so you carry you luggage up to the stairs to the floor where the room is located. I ended up here because most places in Seattle were booked due to the season. Still, if I had to do it over, I'd postpone my trip to a later date. I like to nap, enjoy the quiet and catch a second wind when I travel. Because of the size of the cell, I mean room, and the exterior noise, napping was out of the question. I did, however, enjoy the free breakfast on the fourth floor. But, watch your head because the community room is an attic and the slant of the roof offers some interesting turns. I must add that the College Inn looks like they cater to the foreign traveler and that might be because of its proximity to the UW campus.
