Happy demeanor and a smile can only get you so many stars

Generally positive, but the location was not the best. The shuttle to downtown Seattle was very convenient. The beds in the standard queen room was uncomfortable, but the room was generally clean. The staff was very friendly.

Comfortable stay for a short trip

Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was simple but good. The bathroom had some quirkiness -- the soaps/shampoos are in dispensers attached to the wall, and the toilet paper was in an awkward place in relation to the toilet. The one major complaint I have was about the parking, the first two nights we were there the lot was no problem, but for whatever reason, the last night the lot was totally full. We had to drive around the block three times before finding street parking.

Average Stay

Perfectly average hotel. If not for the free parking we probably would have stayed elsewhere. Location is good, really close to I5 and UW. The room itself was below average, window didn't close properly so there was a bit of road noise. Pillows were hard, my neck hurt most mornings. The shower was a bit awkward too, stuck behind the bathroom door. There was also tons of water noise from other rooms between the walls. Price-wise it's still tough to beat, and we didn't spend a ton of time there anyway.

Great small hotel with great service and very clean!

We were looking at U of W for our daughter. This hotel is very close to the university and several restaurants. The service was outstanding It was clean. Nice complimentary breakfast and afternoon complimentary coffee tea and snack. Great complimentary wifi. Great value. I wish they had a work out room and or jacuzzi but otherwise nice place to stay.

Great small hotel - very nice staff

We went to the hotel to decide whether our daughter was going to University of Washington. The staff is very friendly and aim to please. They have a small pool and no work-out room (agreement with other hotel in neighborhood for their workout room) but round the clock coffee and tea and complimentary breakfast and evening treats. The room was very clean and we got the beds we wanted. Cable TV was great. Free parking. Location was perfect - easy walk to U and lots of other places. Will stay here again!

Yay for pineapples

This was a great place for a quick visit to UWashington. The staff was friendly at check-in - my flight got in super late and it felt like they were expecting me. Breakfast was healthy and simple. Free cupcakes in the afternoon! They had bikes and umbrellas to borrow. Room was cozy and clean - except for the shower curtain. Great room for the price.

Clean, nice , convenient

Had appointment the next morning across the street. I don't mind traffic just like to be close to where I need to be. For the price was more then I expected. Great friendly staff. Continental breakfast was par, rooms clean and everything worked (wall heater noisy). I will probably be back. Location, location, location.
