2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I counted a dozen hairs on the sheets. Terrible wifi--kept dropping. Poor bathroom lighting. Awakened at 2am by very loud guests in room above us. Thin poorly sound proofed floors. Night clerk not particularly welcoming. Morning desk was much more friendly.

Average, nothing fancy, under construction and held 150.00 on credit card. ***************************

Hotel Staff at checking not very friendly, they charge $100 deposit if you pay with debit card . The hotel in general needs a lot of upgrades in the interior and exterior. Vending machines out of service, breakfast very poor ended eating out.

Well after paying online for a room here the deposit online shows that it is a refundable $30- deposit , not the case for white people however, this is an Asian owned and run hotel, and oh how they discriminate against Caucasian folks. Front desk girl demanded a $250- cash only deposit and when I said why is that, she replied saying that's the required deposit. I showed her the online showing a $30- deposit after explaining this to her she refused to check me in without cash and I explained that I was already close to my arm per day limit to get cash out. She wouldn't run my Mastercard. After 30 min of discussion, I said well better check the Asian gentleman in in the meantime , he was checked in in less than 2 minutes she told him there was a $30- deposit ran his boa debit card and off to his room he went. I said, " WHAT WAS THAT?" then I said is this a race thing? She said no, I said oh yes I believe it is. So I told her this is obsurd and I want you to call a higher up since she said she had only worked there 2mos. She refused to call anyone. I said, so I'm out my money spent online? She said well I don't know just call orbitz they will give you your money back. I understand that I was in a pair of sweats however I do not look like some kind of hoodlum or drug addict that wandered in off the street. After 2 1/2 hours of her and on the phone with orbitz I did receive a refund that will appear back in my account within 15days lol. Wow unbelievable zero customer service here

Great rooms, very comfortable beds with lots of room and clean.

Room was clean, quiet, recently painted with new construction for additional amenities underway outside.

Great place to stay, clean room, amenities, premium channels and staff very accommodating. Good location and convenient.

Very nice staff. Perfect location for our needs. Could use a more subtantial breakfast considering the price of the room. Overall very good

First day I got there I found crumbs or something under my pillows. It also could have been dandruff. I did get replacement sheets though. There were a lot of cobwebs in the ceiling corners and I found a dead bug in the bathroom. Don't use the "workout facility". They only have 3 machines - a bike, elliptical, and treadmill. The bike had a broken seat and you can't adjust the resistance, so you're basically pedaling against nothing. The treadmill is a hazard, I tried to go for a run and it kept hesitating every couple seconds. The elliptical seemed to be fine though. But all 3 machines are packed very tightly into this tiny, dirty room. Overall, I was pretty disappointed with this place.

The room was clean and bed comfortable. The facility itself had many areas that needed repair. We were disappointed with the offerings at the breakfast bar and went elsewhere to eat. My husband took the stairs down from the 3rd floor to find an exit door chained shut.

Looks like a dive until you walk in. It's very clean, fresh, and up to date. My husband and I discovered it and we stay there every time we're in Seattle.

Although the hotel was nice, comfortable, and a good nightly rate, the hotel has extremely dated policies: credit card only, exorbitant deposits on top of the nightly fee, and no visitors policy. It's not worth the headache.

Flew in late for a family visit and couldn't wake the house at 1 am. However the staff here was awake and helped us check in with no worries. Our king room was ready and waiting. Two ideas for improvement: supply tea bags in the room as well as the coffee pot and 2) some kind of protein on the breakfast bar like hard boiled eggs. Other than that - we have already recommended it to others and will return on our next Midnight arrival!!

The staffs were very friendly. The location and room met my expectation.

There aren't too many hotels in Lynnwood/Everett to choose from, and this one had the best reviews, so I went ahead and booked it for a short business trip to Everett. Although the hotel was not too close to our primary area of interest (about 20 min), the pros definitely outweighed this minor inconvenience. We arrived from SEA-TAC around 1pm, and the receptionist was kind enough to let us check in early, so we could recharge our batteries before a long night of work. There is a big parking lot behind the building that was almost empty when we arrived. The lobby, albeit small, was very cosy, with a fireplace and comfortable seating. The room was clean and well equipped; the mattress was a bit too soft to my taste, yet very comfortable. The neighborhood seemed to be very quiet, yet there are plenty of coffee houses and restaurants all around the hotel, so dining wasn't a problem. On top of everything, they serve a complimentary Continental Breakfast between 7-10 am, which I personally found very convenient. The staff was very polite and eager to help. Overall, a great stay for a very moderate price.

Stayed there for a night with my girlfriend, old but very clean and conforetable. Family business, nice staff!

We stayed 2 nts at this hotel. We tried it mainly for the price after reading other's reviews. It was actually better than we expected. Lobby was nice and has been updated, rooms were quite clean and looks like they have been recently updated. Staff were nice and accommodating. B'fst was very basic but was complimentary. Location of the hotel was ok but seemed a little seedy - but not far from Alderwood Mall and all the shopping that we came for. Overall - Very cheap price for a clean room in Lynnwood - If you are looking for clean, cheap, No Frills - then this is it!

Hotel International is a decent stay for the price you pay. Free breakfast is included, which is a plus. The food was actually okay (waffles, yogurt, croissants, toast, cereal, fruit, cup noodles). We stayed on the third floor, and it wasn't super loud. Though one morning kids could be heard running around the halls. Service was decent. I would return as the location is fairly convenient.

Very clean rooms & curtious staff. Great place to stay if you don't want a pool.

Used as overnight to get to final destination. Room was clean, large TV easily seen from many places in room. Small exercise room available and morning breaskfast. Good value for the price.
