We spent two nights with my family in this hotel. The rooms are average, the bathroom is oldish with small bath tub, but it was OK for two nights. The variety of breakfast was very limited, but tasty, so no complaints. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Although there is a free shuttle offered by the hotel, we always...

I checked into this hotel two months back. I was there for three nights and I felt very homely. The rooms are large and well furnished. Necessary amenities like coffee/tea making facilities, microwave, iron were available. An umbrella too was provided to "cheat" the Seattle rain! There is free Wifi. The complimentary breakfast was quite good. It is quite close...

We stayed here during my son's UW orientation. This hotel is very clean and comfortable. They have very friendly staff who went out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is walking distance to campus, which is was great for our visit. They also have a shuttle, so we were able to spend some time in downtown Seattle....

The hotel is well located for the u- district and close to public transport links for downtown. The room was basic ( coffee, tea making facilities; no fridge or microwave; iron) but there were laundry facilities in house. The staff are very friendly and this is the best bit for the hotel.

Our second stay at the Inn, this time with our pet dog. With a fee of $20 per night for a pet is a little expensive, but worth it for having the pet stay in air conditioned room during extremely hot days is more than worth it. They do have a pet policy which should be read before booking, but...
