The Motel is closeby Seattle Downtown. Was about 14 minutes (driving distance) from the Paramount. The staff service is friendly. However, it is right off Highway 99. The noise of traffic was not loud, compare to the noise of the people screaming aggressively and violently outside out room one night. During the day this place looks peaceful; at night it can feel unsafe. The heater thermostat seems to not be working. At times the room was very hot. The smell to the room was bad. I got what I paid for.

Fair, close in. Worth every penny. Fifty characters is too many...

Very basic motel. Dated but clean. For longer stays I would find somewhere a bit nicer but for one or two nights this was fine.

The motel had mostly what I needed, my only missing need was a cup, plate and utensils. There was a fridge and microwave but nothing more. Despite that small thing I had everything else that I needed.

The sheets looked and felt unclean. Very minimal towels and bad lighting.

Not good place. Bad location. My car was hit on the parking lot. Hit and run.

Hotel is in need if some upgrades. Remodeling maybe Old and worn out. No coffee maker in the room. Tube tv

I had to check out of this hotel after spending less than 20 minutes there. We booked it for a show at the nearby zoo (it's for my boyfriends birthday) and wanted to stay overnight. When we first got there (1:30pm) our room wasn't ready it was still being "cleaned". Another guest checking in at the same time was also waiting on their room to finish up. My boyfriend needed to use a restroom while we waited so they directed us to another room to use that was also being cleaned. Once our room was ready and we entered it smelled like stale smoke. Only two out of 4 lamps worked. Because we were in a hurry we and had already wasted so much time we just dropped our stuff and made it to the concert/zoo. When we returned I got a strong smell of urine. I went to use the lightswitch and noticed it was FILTHY. I know some older fixtures will yellow over time, that happens. But this has dirt. Caked on human grease/oil and dirt. I even cleaned it. The door was dirty. The doorknob base was falling off and there was also something poking through our ceiling that looked like tissue and wire? We decided we couldn't stay there. Upon check out the guy at the desk was apologetic but only agreed to refund us $40 WHICH HE SAID WAS THE "CLEANING" FEE. He didn't even offer another room. This is the worst hotel experience I've ever received and it ruined our evening. PS I've stayed at a lot of older motels/hotels in the past and while they have been dated, I've never been so disgusted with a place

The staff was super nice and accommodating, and even upgraded our room!

The staff was extremely rude. Accidently locked our key in the room. And told us that we had to leave the property. Wasted our money.

Hotel Staff gave my reservation to others.I had find another hotel.

Hotel was very affordable for seattle - 3 of us shared a room for $195 total for 2 nights. And, it's only about a mile from good coffee shops, etc. One of the front desk folks was fabulous - it was fun joking with him. However, when I made the reservation, I asked about a roll-away bed, and was told we could get one. When I arrived, I was told that they only had cots, and didn't have many extra blankets. Further, the front desk was really slow about delivering it, which was annoying since our group were the early-to-bed types. All this was really fine, except that the group in the room next door including smokers with a really bad cough, and the smokers would go outside their room (right next to our door) to smoke, which brought on fits of loud coughing, which was really annoying at tnight.

Second time there and we felt safe. Peaceful place

This may be distorted, however apologetic we may be for any haphazard mishap that may have occurred.
