Vancouver to Seattle, WA 3 Nights in Seattle, WA (10th - 13th September)
Got to Seattle, checked in at our cheapish (but surprisingly good hotel) and made our way to the Seattle Center. Had a peek at the Space Needle and joined the crowds at the Folklife festival! That was awesome! Thousands and thousands of young people hanging out on the grass and in the waterfall, 4 or 5 music stages with bands playing, numerous …
We spent three nights in Seattle, it’s a very modern, clean city with plenty of culture. It felt very chilly as we were exposed to the ocean and quite close to Canada. We dropped off the car on arrival since we wouldn’t be needing it anymore and walked around the city, it’s really easy to get around on foot and we took a walk …
There is much to say about Seattle. As the biggest city in the Pacific Northwest it's surprising how much this American city is underrated. Apart from the media coverage in Frasier, Austin Powers, and Grays Anatomy, I have to say that I didn’t know much about Seattle.
The first thing you notice when you arrive …
Long time no speak - it has been over a week since my last update. I am now in Seattle but have got here by a rather round about way.
After my last entry I took the train named the Skeena from Prince Rupert in northern British Columbia to Jasper in Alberta which is a resort in the Canadian Rockies. The journey took two days and involved an …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sixth Avenue Inn Seattle
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.
