The check in was old fashioned, with a real metal key and paperwork. The lady at the desk was nice though and told us to ask for anything we needed. The room was a queen with a kitchenette. The kitchen area is more of a kitchen than most hotels; it had a larger mini fridge, microwave, kitchen-sized sink, a counter,...

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone,it's not the cleanest of places. The location is awful and just getting down town from this place is a 35 dollar cab ride. It would have been cheaper to stay down town with what it cost to travel to and from the city centre.

We stayed here 3 nights while visiting my daughter. This was one of the less expensive hotels near her and it was $100 per night. For $100, I was expected more. Much more. The good is the parking is free. That's the end of the good list. The rooms are very run down and dirty. The hotel is shabby from...

The only good thing I can say about this place is that the desk clerk was friendly and polite. The motel is located in a sketchy part of town on a very busy street. There is nowhere to go for food or a drink within walking distance and there seemed to be a fair number of vagrants hanging around the...

Let me start with the good things: nothing! Really nothing. Bad things: bad wifi, no breakfast, old room, old furniture, and expensive. Horrible place to stay. Better sleep in the car next time. Better drive a little longer and look for something else.

Receptionist was very nice, friendly and helpful. She has even provided us an early check in. Room was very big and quite clean. The hotel is warm and even if it is near a busy road, room was quiet and comfy.

I ended up staying here because I waited too long to make a reservation. This place was right on Aurora, thus lots of street noise. Even worse, the rooms walls were paper thin. We heard walking and talking all night long. Bed was a king, sheets were old but clean, pillows had lost their shape. Bathroom was OK, the shower...

While checking in, the older, larger, white man at the front desk (who I assume is the manager) seemed to be very nice, helpful, and kind if somewhat old fashioned. This was only because his friend was hanging out at the front desk with him. About five minutes after getting to my room, the phone rang. It was the voice...

Pros: Cheap; close to downtown Seattle, Fremont, and the University of Washington; free wifi; friendly staff. Cons: Questionable neighborhood; rooms and everything in them were old and outdated; no shampoo provided for the shower. I've stayed in far worse, and this is a cheap option if you simply want a place to rest for the night and put a room...

Lets face it people this is not the Hilton, and you should not expect it to be. First my room was clean, and that is the most important thing when getting a room, second no bugs, and again it was clean. So the two most important things are good. And third the bed and other things were comfy and electronics...
