... for dinner. So, off to the room we went and watched some tv and I also updated yesterday's blog entry as I was too tired to finish it last night. By 6:45 we headed to the dining room for dinner. It was quite busy, so they gave us a buzzer and a free drink voucher for either a soda or glass if champagne. I had the champagne, but should have ordered the soda. That was the nastiest "champagne" I have ever had. It sure isn't the same stuff they offer at our cocktail receptions. Yes, ...
... Funniest Home Videos! We make it nearly to the elevator when a supervisor stops us and says this is unsafe. They would not let him continue and gave us another young non American born girl to take us to gate B 20. She makes Susan walk, but says no worries we will make it. We go down the elevator, on the train, up the elevator, down the concourse to gate 20 B where our flight has been delayed 20 minutes! We would never have made it without the wheels anyway.
... Northwest day to travel down to the airport. Through the forests, across the water by various means, through Seattle seeing the sights and on to the airport. Everyone in the PNW must have been out today! The roads were buzzing, beaches were packed, boats just everywhere, ice cream spots ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sutton Suites And Extended Stays SeaTac
The accomodations are roomy, kitchen is handy, close to airport and Southcentre Mall. But - not very clean, noisy and the continental breakfast was poor. The girl on the front counter was obviously more interested in talking to her friends on the phone as it was evident she was irritated by our presence and questions about the airport parking. Every time we were finished asking one question she would answer curtly and get back on the phone. We would carry on with another question and she would sound exasperated as if to say "what do you want now?". When we returned from our holiday and called the shuttle for pick up, the phone rang and rang, or it would ring a couple of times, sound like it was picked up and then went dead. When my husband had to take a cab to the hotel to pick up our vehicle, he was given the excuse that the phone lines were down. Rates were reasonable enough, but if you want good service and more than mediocre accomodations, pick another place.
You can do better
We stayed for one night before a flight to London and used their Park and Fly deal, booked on Travelocity. The published rate was $59.99 for one night plus 7 nights parking. After adding taxes and an additional two nights of parking, the bill was $92. I think you can do better for the money. The place is a bit run down, and off the main airport road.
The website says you can walk to a movie theatre, but it is actually closed down. The building next door also appears to be closed, so the area feels sort of neglected. You can walk to a Taco Time or a Thai restaurant, but that is all. They don't really have enough parking for their park and fly deal, so there was no place to park when we arrived.
They had to move some vehicles around to find a place.
Incredibly RUDE 'Manager'
This motel is run by the rudest excuse for a "manager" I've ever seen anywhere. I recommend people stay elsewhere to avoid this incredibly hateful individual who has all the time in the world to post anal responses at this site, but no time to deliver acceptable levels of customer service to motel guests! Had she delivered decent service in the first place, I doubt the Sandpoint poster would have given such a negative review. This so-called "manager" needs to retire, as she gives the "hospitality" industry a bad name.
I keep coming back
I found Sutton Suites and I keep coming back. My room was a 1 bedrrom mahogany apt. with all the ameneties and very clean. Having the free continental breakfast is a great convienence.
We should have turned around and left when we first walked in. There was a lady screaming into her cell phone that she was not staying in a dungeon. The people in front of us were almost in tears in trying to get themselves understood. They wanted a shuttle ride and were told it would cost them $24.00 each. Our room was just being cleaned when we were told it was ready. This was 3 pm. The maids did not vacuum and washed the dishes with no soap. The bathroom had hair from various body parts on the floor and my towel had a long black hair that I did not see until I felt it wrapped around my face. There were ants in the kitchen. The bed spread was gross and the sheets did not fit the king sized bed so we wound up sleeping most of the night on the mattress.
Stayed one night
Our family of 4 stayed at the Sutton Suites for one night as we needed to catch a 7am flight the next morning and drove in from Vancouver. I doubt anyone would actually pick this hotel for a holiday stay as the location is near a busy street very close to the airport. The reception was friendly, the room clean and the beds OK - not great but OK. The furniture is pretty cheap, as when we went to move the table so we could pull down the roll-away bed, the leg broke right off. For $56 a night though, this is a pretty good deal though we didn't use their parking or airport shuttle as I found a cheaper deal online.
I decided to stay in the Seatac area and wasn't familiar with the hotels in the area. Did a bit of homework by reading the reviews here since I wanted a fairly large comfortable room with a full kitchen.
Great Hotel shuttle service
We didn't get to stay there as it was not available for the days we requested. But the shuttle service was active for them at the airport.
We saw 3 pickups in 20 mins. while we were still waiting for our hotel.
Will start with them next time.
