Days Inn Seattle - North of Downtown

Recent guest reviews

First of all, let me say to all of you white, suburban housewives who fancy yourselves five-star vacationers but in reality are two-star trailer trash who complain about EVERYTHING, if you COULD afford to stay somewhere better, then you WOULD. Here's the skinny on this hotel: it's FINE. It's not great. It's not even good. It's fine. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the door and locks were sturdy, the parking lot and walkways were well-lit (like, seriously, well-lit). The breakfast was carbs and coffee, which is fine to jump start you until you can get to a diner for a real breakfast. The staff was not warm and friendly, but they answered my questions and gave me an extra pillow, so I'm not mad. Now Aurora Ave is NOT a nice street. It's heavily-trafficked and dirty and there is graffiti and there are homeless people, blah blah blah. But right off Aurora Ave are historic neighborhoods (read: normal people live there), so things are pretty safe. However, Seattle is a city, so you should always be aware of your surroundings, especially at night. I'll stay here again, and I'll recommend everyone I know to stay here. If you just need a place to sleep, change clothes, and keep your luggage, then this place is for you. If you want a hotel you can lounge around at, complete with restaurant, bar, and pool, and a staff that makes you feel you feel special, then maybe skip Seattle all together and just book an awful, prepackaged vacation in Suckersville, USA.

So we needed a place to stay for a convention downtown. We picked this place becuase the E-line bus is so close and it goes straight downtown. The Motel isn't fancy but when we checked in we were greeted warmly and friendly but the lady at the time behind the counter. The hotel room when we got in was clean. Nothing fancy but perfect for what we needed was just to come back shower and sleep. The surrounding neighborhood is not the place you will want to walk around exploring. Other things to mention. The road noise was ok since we were towards the back part of the Motel, but if you get a room closer to the front you may run into that issue. Also the Motel has a policy of not allowing cars to back into a parking spot. Also the breakfast isn't much but there is an IHOP up the street.

Went on a last minute trip to seattle with 7 members & we had no hotel lined up. Pulled up hotels in downtown Seattle & everything was crazy expensive ($300 a night or more!). We were looking for a clean place to lay our heads, we literally were going to arrive at midnight & wake up every day and leave by 7am because we had jammed packed itineraries, so we didn't want to spend too much. Out of pure luck I found Days Inn and a Ramada for the same price. Hands down the Days Inn was a million times better! The Ramada which was a lot further out was horrible customer service, dirty, etc....SO happy we found this place, its obviously not a 5 star hotel, but it was very clean, tidy, very nice lady at desk, & super close to Seattle downtown. I would stay here again for the price, plus it serves a basic continental breakfast.

Very clean, comfortable room with a great mattress. This is a basic motel, offers a tub and shower; expanded continental breakfast. There is ample parking. I plan to stay here again when in the area.

A very rude staff,this guy need to evaluate from the management.for letting a costumers stay outside the lobby,from 0545 to 0647 in the cold Washington weather.

The manager is an awful person that treats guests like shirt.

Absolutely the rudest person we have ever dealt with.

Where to begin. When checking in, the man at the front desk suggested a place where we could buy Marijuana. Ok. The room was OK besides smelling like animals had been in there and the stains on the floor. Me and my husband decided to go for a walk to grab a bite to eat and the security guard at the taco bell next store said this wasn't that neighborhood. He said it had problems with prostitution and drugs. Ok. So we uber. The window in our room was opened to an alley behind the hotel where we could hear and see the going ONS. Tons of night traffic. Needless to say we only came back to the room to sleep. Oh and it's not close to the university like it claims.

Wasn't able to check in even though i booked it online. The hotel staff told me my Mastercard which serves as dual debit & credit wasn't acceptable because the card read "debit". He didn't do anything about it and when the online website i booked with called him he didn't help him either.

Staff was nice. The room was okay. We found hairs on the bathroom floor and had to kill two spiders.

Found 1 bug crawling under the pillow. A bit unnerving. Otherwise clean, comfortable and affordable.

I picked this hotel because it's on the E line, making it easy to get there from Amtrak in South Downtown. It was comfortable, nothing fancy, but good for the price.

A basic hotel with easy access to downtown Seattle - nothing exceptional or outstanding but it is clean and convenient. A little loud due to proximity to the highway, the bed was a little hard (I like a soft bed) and half of the tv channels did not work. The internet also did not work - it would not let me connect. But, if you aren't going to be in the room much and need a place to sleep - it's very convenient to drive into Seattle.

Very happy with the place and about to make reservations for next week - enough said

I was staying there for a 3 days while I had an interview at Medical University of Washington. The main reason why I have chosen it, it was not as expensive as other hotels. I asked personnel to give me a quiet room and as a result I got almost a basement…Well, besides dark room, non opening windows, there was a horrible internet speed and cell phone connection.Moreover, the people upstairs were jumping, running and screaming until late night. Also, I have asked for a nonsmoking room while I smelled a very strong cigarette smell. So, I called and asked to change the room and got a response, 'Come tomorrow!" Finally, I didn`t have an iron and when I came to ask, they basically gave me an ironing board with iron to bring it by myself to my room. Yes, I was on very high heels and with hot coffee in my hands... At the end, of course, they helped me, after my uplifted eyebrow)) But funny thing was at the end! They said, "Our highest priority is your comfort!" If you want such kind of comfort, good luck!

Hotel was nice and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was a bit loud due to busy street but aside from that no complaints.

If you need a bedroom to spend the night, this hotel is a good choice. But don't expect more. The internet connection is lousy. Except for one of the receptionists, who will not answer any question without simultaneously letting you know that you are an idiot, the staff is friendly.

Very good, very helpful staff mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The place looks a little bit dated, but it really isn't that bad. The front desk person was really nice. There isn't too much to do at the hotel itself, but there is plenty to do nearby. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a decent place to stay in Seattle, but plans to spend most of their time out exploring the city. The bus stops directly in front of the hotel, and will take you to a lot of key locations in Seattle.

I stayed in this hotel to go to a conference in Seattle and it lived up to my expectations

9100 Aurora Avenue North Seattle WA
