I flew into Seatac Airport under what was the most unpleasant of circumstances, the passing of a dear friend of the family, Silas Jones, who once upon a time helped raise me.
As soon as I checked in the rather bored looking agent asked if she could help me. I told her yes, that I was there to check in. I also mentioned about the passing of my dear friend. To put it lightly, the agent was insensitive to this and sent me to my room, which may or may not have been occupied (all I could see was the clothes and blankets strewn about everywhere). This time the lady was actually quite nice, but you know what she did? She turned around and sent me right back to a dirty room.
I'm not normally an emotional person, but at this point I was very irate! That said, I hid it well. I was informed by the lady at the desk that there were no other rooms "ready" and that I would have to wait. I said that was OK, that I would go out and get some coffee and hopefully by that point I would have my room ready.
I got back just in time to watch them check in two individuals only for the same lady to tell me my room still isn't ready. I did not ask for a special room! I did not make any special requests! When I asked why the other two people got checked in before me I was told that they have a full house and the gentlemen before me were there when I wasn't.
I barely managed to get to sleep that night, I was so furious. When I finally did, I heard what sounded like teenagers running down the halls checking door handles of all the rooms to see if any were unlocked, laughing and swearing in the hallways.
I'm truly horrified of the kind of establishment they're running after this night. When it came time to check out, I informed the new lady at the desk some % of the problems I encountered and she was sorry to hear that.
Yeah, I was sorry too. Sorry for ever thinking about staying at the Holiday Inn Express Seatac, that is. The only good news is that I'll never make that mistake again.

Frequently A Guest
I work at the airport. At times, I have a short time between work shifts. When I do, I stay at this inn. It is cleaner and nicer that its local competition, though more expensive. (I'm worth it.) I don't know what that other reviewer was talking about concerning shabbiness, etc. I recommend this inn.
Great place, great value
My girlfriend and I stayed there for one night during our pacific northwest trip. We liked this place more than just about anywhere else we stayed at, including Holiday Inn in Vancouver Centre and Holiday Inn in Poulsbo. It's not fancy by any means but the place is nice and clean, has all the amenities you'd expect and the staff was friendly too. We've had a little trouble finding the place confusing it with the other Holiday Inn at the airport.
I've stayed in many 'express' type places in my life and this was one of the best. Spacious room with a little fridge, microwave, sink - Comfy, clean beds - I especially liked the large selection of pre-pay movies available - we watched three! Close to the airport, mall, restaurants... I had to close the window at night from airplane noise - the only downfall...covered parking and friendly staff. I'll definitely return!
A Sure Thing
The hotel is very clean. We had a one bedroom suite that was just right after a long day of travel. The bed was very hard, but I was exhausted, so slept anyway. Staff is courteous, breakfast is good-overall I would recommend this hotel as a "sure thing" .
Awesome! Big clean quiet room with lots of room for our kids, fridge, microwave with free popcorn, lots of choices for the continental breakfast, convenient location and super nice staff. We were really pleased with our stay there.
I was more then pleased at this hotel. Was very clean. Did not have to pay for parking, as most airport hotels you have to. Had free high speed internet access, which is important to me, and ample desk space for lap top. The free breakfast was well stocked and clean. Did not like the worker watching every move I made while I got my breakfast tho. Had no swimming pool, but I rarely use hotel pools. This will be the first hotel I will go back to when I visit Seattle.
Unfortuately, I found this hotel to be quite rundown and in need of some refurbishing. The lobby was nice enough, but my room, and seemingly my entire floor, featured stuffy (though not small) rooms with an air of dank smoke, though I had a non-smoking room. Next time, I try one of the other many many airport motels.
I usually stay at one of the higher end hotels downtown, but recently took my night before flight stay at Holiday Inn SeaTac and found it one of the best deals I have ever had. I plan to return.
Lots of space
Stayed at this hotel this summer with our children. The extra space and the refridgerator and microwave in the room was a wonderful surprise.
The free continental breakfast was great especially with the kids and there was a lake across the street. The staff at the front desk was great and helped us get downtown to see the sights.
Holiday Inn Express
Good quality hotel with an excellent continental breakfast, free morning newspaper and very clean and well appointed rooms (microwave, fridge). Some noise from the airport but tolerable with the room fan on.We checked the Holiday Inn website the Monday before our arrival and were able to book the room for 1/2 price at (53$)

... steady pace but still long. We finally cleared immigration and made it to the gate with about 10 minutes to spare. Once on board it was off to Seattle for the first leg of our 28 hour journey. I didn't get much sleep on the flight. I was planning on sleeping the whole way but when they said they had complimentary beer my plans changed. I know it was 6:15am Alberta time but free beer is free beer and it was actually really good. A pale blond craft beer. The flight to Seattle was ...
... our way to the country of kangaroos and koalas, we first have to fly down to San Francisco for our connecting flight to Sydney. After about a two hour plane ride to San Fran, we then have to continue on another plane for 16 more hours! Definitely the longest plane ride I have ever been on, so I know it will be interesting.
Wish us luck...
... passage as I am finding that a little boring now. We went to listen to Debbie Bacon in the Piano lounge, whe was playing 60's tunes but unfortunately they were not the type of music John and I enjoy even though they were good. John and Phil joined us and we had a pleasant hour before dinner. However during dinner John appeared annoyed and later I found out he was sick of Phil dominating the conversation and not ...
... as I write this sitting in Stanley Park a Raccoon just walks right up to me, no word of a lie. It scared the s**t out of me I wasn't sure if I should run for my life or stay seated and take some photos so I decided to stay and take photos. Wow that was scary. I think he was checking to see if I had any food as he walked right up and looked in my hands. Cheeky devil reminded me of Riley. I'm going to walk home now, wish me luck you never know what I might ...
... my flight to Barcelona.
I signed up for a brunch at a local residence there through the
terrific site Eat With. I intend to intersperse my sightseeing with as many
local experiences as I can and to have those events happen more and more
through natural relationship building.
I am looking forward to seeing you all at the Art Adoption
Party this coming Sunday.
Mucho Mucho Amor!!!
