Friday July 19th thru Sunday July 21
Seattle is a city I'd like to return to – unfortunately John got sick, then shortly thereafter I came down with the same bug. Neither of us had much energy to do much although we were in the perfect location, near Seattle Center, within walking distance to everything. Visited the EMP ( …
After another standard hotel breakfast (the novelty is wearing off now) we hopped in the car and drove down to the Bank of America tower on Columbia/5th Ave and went up to the 73rd floor for some amazing views over Seattle – and only cost $19.00 for us all (as compared to $80+ for the Space Needle near our hotel). We …
We had an early breakfast because there was a lot we wanted to do and only had a few hours within which to do it. First stop - the Space Needle. A short elevator ride (glass enclosed, on the outside) took us to the top. There were great views of the city and the waterfront. Too cloudy to view Mt. Rainer - disappointing.
The monorail …
We finally got to bed at 3am, 5am Austin time! Got up at 8:30 and hit the ground running. Here is all we did today:
Science Fiction museum and hall of fame
Experience Music Project
Lunch at the Pike Place market on the water
Monorail back uptown
Up to the top of the Space Needle
Pacific Science …
Jay, Di, Lynda & I will drive to Seattle on 8/17/09 to board the Zandam for our cruse to Alaska. Booked rooms at the Quality Inn near the Seattle Center. The price is very reasonable and they have breakfast included. Will not eat much because there is a welcome bash aboard the ship with too much food. Lynda and I went shopping and got me a …

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Seattle
We do not recommed this hotel. We were unable to sleep-- the beds and sheets were uncomfortable. The service is incompetent and unable to answer questions profeciently and simply. The parking is a complete mess. Elevators were broken down, our bathrooms not cleaned. It is a decent location and a great price, however I wish we would have spent more on a nicer hotel.
I booked before I had seen any of the reviews...and having subsequently read them, was actually frightened at what I was going to find. We come to Seattle twice a year, for a week at a time, and usually stay at the Comfort Suites on Roy St...but wanted to try a place with a pool...so we thought we'd give it a shot. We travel (for work) on a budget...and find the hotels in Seattle to be realtively pricey, rate-wise, generally speaking, but here, it's pretty much you-get-what-you-pay-for. I wouldn't say it was "above average"......but we were NOT disappointed.
We stayed at Quality Inn for 3 nights in early August 2004. It was recently converted to a Quality Inn and supposedly remodeled, but it still doesn't meet the brand reputation. On the plus side, it's within walking distance of the Seattle Center, and the free breakfast buffet featured some nice hot items like eggs, breakfast meats and waffles. On the down side, our room was tiny and poorly decorated. The public areas are also small and rather shabby. Bathroom amenities such as soap, shampoo, etc. are provided through wall dispensers, and ours weren't very full - luckily, we'd brought some soap and shampoo with us. I've stayed at many other Quality Inns, and this one just doesn't live up to the name.
(August 2004) I would never stay in this hotel again or recommend it to friends and family. The hotel is run down. The pool water was cloudy. The complimentary coffee in the lobby was nonexistent (containers, but no coffee). (There was some coffee in the decaf coffee pot and I was told just take some of that because they don't have decaf, it is all regular coffee..the 1/2 cup which was there was cold). There was no soap in the bathroom. After requesting soap (and waiting for an hour), I went to the front desk to get it myself. BUT, the worst part was when the toilet backed up and we called for someone to come up to the room with a plunger............. We waited 45 minute...... I called again......... We waited 20 minutes ....... I called again.........5 minutes later someone came to the room and handed me the plunger....... When I refused to take it and asked him what kind of service this hotel had...... he asked me "Do you want me to do it?" And as he used the plunger he asked me " Am I doing this right?" The next morning when we checked out, I informed the front desk of the problem the night before regarding the employee who came to the room with the plunger........... Their response.... "That's not his job."
Do NOT stay here!!
We used this hotel numerous times over the course of a couple years, and the service got worse and worse. When it switched to best value, we stayed there and they double charged my credit card, telling me i didnt get the second night free as promised in the promotion! I had to pay for 4 nights for an almost nothing continental breakfast, a sad, old room.. since i was getting the "promotion", it didnt include the remodeled rooms.. and a dirty pool! Go across the street to Holiday Inn Express for 10 bucks more a night!
NEVER BOOK A ROOM HERE, especially if there's any chance you may need to cancel. We booked a room for two nights the Seattle Best Value Inn (Friday 16 and Saturday 17 January 2004). Alas, we had to cancel. We called at least one week ahead of time to cancel this booking; my mother in England had died, and I had to attend her funeral on January 16. Despite this, our Visa card was charged for one night. We have repeatedly called the Seattle Best Value Inn, have been promised at least six call backs (none have been made) and received NO satisfaction either from the manager (Kevin) or his staff. I have placed the Visa charge in dispute; I plan to contact the Seattle Chamber of commerce also to complain and to write to the Seattle papers to publicize this poor treatment. This has been a really shabby treatment, especially at this sad time. We even have a witness to the cancellation call;a neighbor of ours was with my husband when he made the cancelation call. Despite all this, the implication is simply that my husband and I are lying. Of course we also have a phone record of the calls made (two calls, one to book and one to cancel). We did everything right...now we have paid for lots of long distance phone calls in addition to being charged over $70 which no one has offered to refund. STAY AWAY!!!!!!
Do not stay at this hotel!! Do not stay here even after the remodelling is finished as I had problems that were unrelated to the remodeling. It is currently undergoing remodelling, so parts of the hotel look run down (such as the elevator, which is very shabby and has wires hanging out of the ceiling) and other parts look nice (corridors to rooms).
Good for the price
We stayed at this hotel in July 2003, and found it to be OK. It is still going through remodelling, but our suite was all brand new, and very nice. The kids LOVED the pool, and you can't beat the proximity to the Space Needle and other amusements. The surrounding neighborhood is nothing more than a big city area. I was leary of this property after reading some of the reviews, but found it to be a good choice. And, as for the price...you can't beat it for Seattle. Will stay here again.
I stayed at the Best Value Seattle Inn on 10-14-02 and the stay was great. The hotel exterior and parts of the hotel are old, but I was told by one of the front desk staff (also a sign in the lobby) that they were remodeling the whole hotel because they were under new management and owners. The location of the hotel is fantastic for us out of town travellers. The hotel is close to all the tourist
My family stayed at the Seattle Inn in July of '02. It was a miserable experience that I would not wish others to have. We got in late and found it to be an old and run down place. I asked about a late check out and was given a measly 30 minutes. Fifteen minutes into this my wife was called and told to be out in five minutes or be charged for another night. It had been exceptionaly hot for Seattle and I foolishy assumed the air conditioner had been turned down and was just going to take awhile to cool down. No it never cooled down. Our room had no window, only a sliding glass door that opened onto a community roof area. This made it a risk to leave the door open. By the time I realized that my wife and I would get no sleep (temp of 85 in room), the kids were fitfully sleeping and packing and moving seemed an equal waste of sleep. The room had nobs missing and switches that did not work. The table was filthy with sticky stuff on it. It was a bad night and a difficult meeting to stay attentive at in the morning. Do yourself a favor. Go across the street to the Holiday Inn Express I found was there and have a much better room and stay.
