WASHINGTON -- General Motors has spent the past several months digging through its file cabinets and hard drives for 15 years' worth of records relating to its faulty ignition switch.

I was 20 years old. I was in university. For spring break, I was itching to take a trip. Many of my friends were off to Florida. Being from there, that was of course the last place I wanted to go. There used to be something called a courier flight, a way to fly completely free around the globe. Companies with extremely time sensitive cargo would buy an airline seat for their things, using the allowable luggage space to get them there quickly. The courier companies, as long as a ...
... Center viewing gallery on the 73rd floor, but it was a fair few blocks south so we walked all the way down along the waterfront taking in the fresh air and views. This was the third tall building we'd been up but felt very different. It was very modern, and had some interesting descriptions and models of the design of the building, as well as the role of shipping in the Seattle area. The views were incredible and reminded us of Paris (there we went up ...
... there's unlike every other. There are many shops there that you can find nowhere else and you will be able to benefit from the exclusive companies that are regarded as top notch. You will actually come across unique shops and boutiques that offer interesting items. If you're a shopaholic, Florida must certanly be your destination.
The fishing tradition in Naples can also be one ...
... was really good and then back to the hostel to rest our tired feet. This evening we met Elaine and went to her flat for a drink and met her dog Ollie. Nina hasn't seen her for 7 years so was really lovely to catch up. Then onto dinner on a rooftop restaurant in a cool area called Capitol Hill with two of Elaine's mates - really lovely evening and nice to have some new ...

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.
Not too bad
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.
Well, the hall carpets were somewhat shabby, and there was a bit of paint flaking in the bathroom, but we didn't think the place was a dump, or scary. The little bit of interaction we had with the staff was friendly, the room was big and clean, the location very good for Seattle Center. (The "continental breakfast" was pretty skimpy and had to be eaten in the room, but it was free.) We were fortunately on the side of the motel away from Aurora, which can be pretty noisy.
It was the cheapest place we could find in the area; we thought that another ten bucks for some other place might have been worth it, but all in all, we found the Vagabond not bad at all, nowhere near as awful as some of the reviews suggested.
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!!!!
