We woke up feeling quite sad today as it was our last day in Canada with the Lewis' and although we were going on a cruise around Alaska, we were both sorry to be leaving. We had an hour in the morning with Alison before she had to head out to work. The goodbye's were quite tearful and Alison had to leave before she ruined her makeup for work. As …

Another fact: At the beginning of the 70s during the oil crisis, Boeing had to eliminate 60,000 jobs in 3 years which caused a depression in Seattle and people were leaving to find jobs elsewhere. Apparently, a billboard appeared in the airport that read "Will the last person leaving Seattle, turn out the lights". ...

This included the World Heritage listed Hoh Rainforest, Olympic NP and the unfortunately more famous town of Forks. For those of you, like me, who aren't a teenage girl, this is where the Twilight series was set.
But now I had been in one place for almost a week, and it was time to unwind the miles and break out the tent. The US roadtrip was about to begin!

Historical Traveler Reviews Seattle Pacific Hotel
From a Seattle Tourist
This is not a very exquisite place to stay at because the rooms terribly needed renovations and the owner (or manager?) needs to approach guest with respect and professionalism. And yes, I agree with the other review on this website, that the place does not look very appealing on the outside.
We were there in mid-August 2004. We made the reservations and only then read some of the terrible reviews, so checked in with some trepidation.
Mean, nasty management
We had to leave after the first night. The tub leaked and the housekeeping staff wouldn't give us extra towels. The owner was extremely rude and nasty.
You get what you pay for.
I thought this hotel was ok. It was the cheapest one i could find in the seattle center area. I had a problem with the bathroom when we first arrived but they quickly just gave me another room. There were no towels in the new room which i had to ask for about 3 different times, but i eventually got them. I wouldnt count on a good continental breakfast as it is just some cheap pasteries but i really wasnt expecting anything better. All in all....if you are looking for a fairly cheap hotel for a night or two...give this place a try.
Terrible! Use at own risk!
We stayed here in June '03. It was terrible. The room was dirty and grungy looking with all the tile and tub in the bathroom painted and peeling badly. I wouldn't let my daughter have a bath in it! The breakfast was nothing more than day-old pastries, if you could actually get any. The staff would only put out a few dozen and when gone.. oh well. The pool was terrible as well, tiles missing and dirty. When we checked in they also tries to pull a fast one as well. We booked and payed in full through Expedia. They tried to make us pay again. Thank goodness I had a printed confirmation showing it was paid in full. I would defeinitely say this place is a use at your own risk!
A terrible experience
The room was not very clean compared with the price we paid for a night. The toilet was old and it couldn't flush so that we had to change our room in the middle of the night. the breakfast was not very good either, at least not the "continnental breakfast" we expected.
I wouldn't stay in that hotel next time for sure.
Since March 2003, the Vagabond Inn has been under new management. There have been lots of improvements, with more to come. Renovations are ongoing. The Vagabond Inn has become a nice friendly and most of all clean and safe place to stay. The rooms are very reasonably priced.
They have a Continental Breakfast, Hairdryers and Coffee Makers in-room, Meeting and Banquet rooms and more.
I recommend this place!!!
A nice, decent, clean hotel. I made my reservation through the internet and when I arrived I had no problems whatsoever. I found the staff to be very helpful. Giving directions and suggestions on where to go and what to do. Being my first time in Seattle, this was very helpful. Also the price and location is great!! Just a short walk to Seattle Centre and the Space Needle, downtown, etc.I would recommend this place to anyone, and I hope to return one day.
I haven't stayed BUT I drive by twice a day to and from work and believe me you do NOT want to stay in this place! YUK!
They gave our room away after we had a reservation and had arrived early and parked in front of their office. Told them we would sightsee on foot and be back late to check in. Room was not there when we returned. Took forever for them to find another room for us--far from Seattle Center. They did pay for the new room but when we got home our card was charged for the Vagabond Inn. Manager did not want to reverse the charge--finally did because I would not give up. Bad way to treat their customers!!!!
