The lobby smelled... BAD
i agree that there is NO consistancy in the days inn chain. i have stayed at some lovely days inns. but the one in downtown seattle was not one of them. the lobby smelled like urine, dirt, and body oder combined. we were told when check in time was and arrived then. we were forced to wait in the "lobby" for over an hour while they got our room ready. the clerk in the lobby was rude and forgot that we were there waiting (how could he? the lobby was tiny). the rooms were small and kind of gross. i'm not sure if our bed sheets had been changed (we actually opted to sleep in our sleeping bags on the floor on the last night!!!!). and the parking did not seem secure. i was afraid to leave my car there. all in all a HORRIBLE experience. DON'T STAY HERE! opt for the holiday inn express not too far away.
Perfect for all Seattle
I don't know what the other people are complaining about. This hotel is cheap and close to all Seattle attractions. It was clean enough and perfect for a stay in the beautiful city , after all a hotel is only to sleep in and I found it friendly and convienient.
I can see by the reviews other people were unhappy. I was charged a $5/day parking charge when I was told previously there was free parking. I believe the orbitz website info has been changed removing the free parking. Parking in seattle is expensive. I also was charged more than what I booked thru orbitz. The towels in the rooms have enough chlorine to burn your face. I did not find it noisy though. Beds ok. Breakfast in the coffeeshop/cafe was good. Bathrooms dingy but bearable.
On average, this hotel is average.
I stayed at this hotel for just one night and for the price I paid, found it to be of an acceptable standard. The front desk were reasonably helpful; the bedroom was quite big and spotlessly clean, but the bathroom certainly had room for improvement in that department. The bed was large and comfortable, and the room had an effective heater and air-con unit.
The elevator had a funny smell, but I would certainly consider staying at this hotel again.
I was very disappointed in the service. It was un-friendly and dirty.
Dirty and Noisy
Skip this hotel completely and stay one block over at the Sixth Avenue Inn, which is exactly what we did after spending two miserable nights at this hotel. Room and Bathroom were filthy. Whole place needs supercleaning and some updates, like a fresh coat of paint. We were not expecting the Ritz, but did expect cleanliness considering the cost per night. Rooms are spacious but no amentities. First night was very noisy because of loud neighbors and after we moved to another floor, the noise factor was not an issue. The location of this hotel is great, but there are several other hotels nearby that cannot be as dirty as this Days Inn. However, stayed at a Days Inn in Vancouver a few days later and it was fabulous. Hard to believe the inconsistency in this chain.
Large room, but that's about as good as it gets.
No cofee facilities in room.
Coffee shop was only open in the morning.
2nd floor was strewn with laundry as were the lifts and car park.
Noisy partying went on from 230am until 530am both in the car park & inside the hotel-impossible to sleep.
Nice, quiet clean room. Relatively large buffet breakfast located in hotel. Considering Seattle's street layout, it was easy to get to. And it was convenient to most of the Seattle attractions, if you have a car.
The only drawback that I experienced was that the parking garage was small and cramped. It's har to manuver a larger car or van into a space.
After reading the first review I didn't expect much. But I just stayed for one night and I thought it can not be that bad. And it wasn't. In fact, it was really good. Everything in the other review isn't true for my stay. The heating was okay, the staff friendly and everything clean.The location is perfect. It is just a few minutes away from the space needle and downtown. If you want to see the city and just need a place to sleep, it is perfect.
Cold and unwelcoming
Only stayed for one night and thankful for that fact. The room was big, and the bed comfortable, but the room was also very cold - no obvious signs of heating anywhere. The bathroom was filthy and the staff unhelpful. Only good point was the excellent breakfast provided in the cafe attached to this poor hotel - but that cost extra anyway. Avoid, go somewhere like Comfort Suites up the road, maybe a bit more expensive, but worth it.

... about 1-mile to the Pike area so we decided to walk as it was one of the most beautiful days I've experienced in a long while. We had about a 10-minute walk (enough to burn off the calories we'd soon consume) to the venue. It's set up so cool, like a library. And the choices were overwhelming! Susan decided on a raspberry glazed chocolate cake donut, Justin chose a blueberry, Josh chose a double chocolate and I chose a salted caramel. Brittany ...
... anemones and starfish and a sea urchin. The little anemones were kind of sticky and one of the workers there told me it was trying to sting me and that if I was a little fish, I would probably die. She also told me that if I stuck my finger between the spines of the sea urchin that it would squeeze my finger. And it did! I got a hug from a sea urchin! Have you ever done that? I also saw all of the cast of Finding Nemo and saw some otters getting fed, which was pretty cute. They had ...
... game so I joined, tried to finish my beer from the night before and relaxed. I had no intention of going out that night but I hung out with everyone for a while before they did, and I resigned to my room at a reasonable hour to get ready for my super early flight to San Fran the next day. I was glad I was again upgraded to first class and could sleep on the plane. I could get used to that first class life for sure. My amazing race of a day is over, and I start a new adventure tomorrow. ...
... just discounts at some of the breweries. It was a fun evening but not what we expected.
After we left the pub crawl, we took an uber over to Fremont Brewing Company, which had a "Back to the Future" IPA, on recommendation from the tour guide at the pub crawl. We walked down a few blocks from there to the Red Door to have dinner, since none of the breweries had any options for food and we still hadn't eaten yet. We took an uber back to the hotel and called it a night.
... off at port Angeles as there would be little chance of cheap lodgings anywhere else near to where we wanted to be. Shortly after checking in we took a ride to Marymere Falls
