Good value, clean room, friendly & helpful staff, and we always love the breakfast. It's an older (built in 84?, renovated in 2013?) building, so there are little things that reflect that: the hallways aren't very wide, nor is the elevator especially large, like you would have in newer hotels; the overall layout of the hotel is long and narrow, so you may want to put more effort (than normal) into parking near an entrance closer to where your room is if you have mobility issues; the hallways slope in areas that transition from one building section to another -- it's not problematic, just different.
We didn't expect new & fancy as we chose this location because it had good access to I-5 (which can, yes, occasionally, mean some freeway noise; but it didn't bother us) which provided a central location for the places we wanted to visit both in Seattle and farther north, and we were able to save some money in the process. As a single mom with a teenage son, I appreciated that the parking lot was well lit and I never felt like I had to question the safety of the area. Yes, occasionally I could hear the train (but, if all else is quiet, I can hear the train at home too, even from a distance) or the freeway sounds, but neither were truly bothersome. We slept well and soundly. And, as a parent of a teenager, I love their breakfasts! Great and plentiful options, we don't have to take the time to go "out" but can have an excellent, filling breakfast (even if my son wants two waffles and extra bacon) and you can't beat the convenience. We'll definitely stay here again. less
