Yes, watch your wallet!
Booked a 2 night stay through Seattle Super Saver at 6th Avenue. I called the hotel a month later to confirm, and was told my reservation was for one night (although my written confirmation showed 2 nights). When he asked if I want the reservation changed to 2 nights I said yes. I asked about mileage points and he rudely told me that he could double the price of the room and then give me mileage points. Very unfriendly fellow. Few days later I called 6th Avenue's toll free number to confirm that my stay was changed to 2 nights. Receptionist advised me that when 6th Avenue changed it to 2 nights he also raised the nightly rate by $15. I was shocked that he could raise the price of the room without telling me. I called Seattle Super Saver to complain and cancel. The manager apoligized, but could not find me a room at another hotel for the same price. I called her back a day later to give her some time to find another hotel room, but she said there was nothing available for family of 3 at a comparable rate. I asked how 6th Avenue manager reacted to my complaint. She said she didn't talk to the manager, but left a message and received no response. This was a bad experience on all levels.
As long as you get a good rate, this place is a great value. Don't expect a ton of extras, but the place is clean and the staff is friendly. The room was huge; the decor reminds me a bit of a guest bedroom, complete with wicker. It's close to everything and has on-site parking.
Very Good Value
Excellant value, loaction close to the heart of seattle. Walking distance to monorail,pikes market, aqurium etc. Stayed 2 nights, May 27 & 28. Resturant has good value for fine foods. Bar has a fine atmoshere...Plesent staff..Room adaquate and confortable...Will stay again if in area...
We had a fine time at the 6th Ave. Inn. It's in a good location, walking distance from restaurants and attractions. Our room was clean and we had no problem with the hotel staff. Our room faced 6th Ave., so there was some noise, but nothing out of the ordinary. It was a great value, and we'd stay there again.

Always stay here when in Seattle. Pleasant restaurant/bar, room not fancy but comfortable, location ok and the price is right.
A great deal
Got a $50/night rate at the 6th Avenue Inn through Expedia. I was a bit nervous about the hotel, after reading some negative reviews from last year. But the 6th Ave Inn provided good value for the money. Contrary to prior reports, the beds were comfortable. The room was quiet & very clean, and larger than I expected, and the front desk people were super friendly. This is a no-frills place, but close to the convention center & Pike's Place. I would definitely stay here again.
Not bad if you get a cheap price
We picked up a discount fare on Expedia and ended up paying about $53 a night for 5 nights. Although a bit shabby, we were only minutes from everything, and walked to the Convention Center, the Pike Market and the Space Needle. No frills. Be prepared to pay for local phone calls ($1.50 each) and parking, but we were satisfied! A good buy for folks on a budget.
Sixth Avenue Inn
We stayed at the Sixth Avenue Inn. Conveniently located to everything. The price was right. The bus is free in some parts of the city which was great. Walking distance to Pike Place Market. Took the bus to and from the airport for $1.25 one way - GREAT!!! Very easy to get around on the bus. The Sixth Avenue Inn had a restaurant that wasn't bad. I recommend it.
Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. In fact, I must say that the Super 8 and Motel 6 probably have better beds. The mattresses are hard, the pillows flat. The rooms and halls smell musty and stale.
There are no coffee pots in the rooms, the television needed some work and the alarm clock didn't work.
For the money one of the chain motels would be a better buy.
Watch your wallet!
had an extra 300 dollars tacked onto a two room one week stay. called to try and remedy but was told - the guy with the password for the system won't be in til 6pm PST. I had an invoice in hand when i checked out and paid with a cashier's check for the amount i was quoted. 2 days after check out i find an extra 300 dollars billed to my credit card.

... Quarter only instead of having loads of fake Americana places they were real. Unfortunately I’d forgotten my ID so I couldn’t get served anywhere. Eventually we found a pizza bar called Marios or something it was quality, you ordered as many slices of amazing (and I mean amazing) pizza as you like then take them to a booth/sit at the bar and then order a beer which were in cans. The bartender was cool and let me use my driving licence ID. Seattle is ******* ...
... picked up the undertone to his comment and then put her bag on the desk whilst she answered his questions. This seemed to irk the guy a bit, who gestured for her to remove it from his desk immediately! So then, when he turns to us and says 'OK, I just have one more question, who are you, and what have you done with this person?' pointing at Sophie's passport photo, we were somewhat concerned! Cue significant palpitations... It turned out to all be a joke ...
... Space Needle (of which everyone has told us not to go up as it is rubbish) and instead went into the EMP museum. This had been highly recommended by a few people. Basically a large building with a huge music section, and a couple of sections for film. It was pretty cool. We started off with the Jimi Hendrix exhibition which had loads of his outfits and guitars (mostly smashed) as well as lots of memorabilia. AP loved this. ...
... discovery corps giving me a private tour of the universe. I can touch in anemones in the tide pool without children glaring at me for taking their turn. I can just relax in the butterfly house and enjoy nature's beauty. We ended up spending about 20 minutes trying to create a day of perfectly balanced food, loving the technology of taking pods of "food" off of the conveyor belt and learning all about their sodium and fiber levels. A fantastic and informative evening.
An interesting day it was. Our plan today was to go sightseeing on Puget Sound in the morning then visit Pike Market in the afternoon. We left the hotel at 9 AM, 64 degrees, and headed north on I-5. The first thing I saw when we hit the road was a long chain of mountains to the east, with those now familiar trails of snow bleeding down the sides. Since the sky was blue today and the sun was shining brightly, we could see them clearly ...
