EMP and the Space Needle

A travel blog entry by colinhardcastle


We're still using the Citypasses as inspiration on where we should go today. We do know we are going up the Space Needle, and the Citypasses have two included tickets in there. The EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum is right nearby as well, so unsure of what we’ll see, we head over to that.

We walk past the Space Needle as we …

Exploring Seattle

A travel blog entry by colinhardcastle


Up for breakfast. It's nice to wake up, walk out, and see the Space Needle right in front of us. We thankfully also remember to get a photo of George in his new bib before he gets food all over it!

We don’t have any solid plans today, except we are going to meet someone from my firm to talk about life in Seattle. Thankfully the time …

Into Seattle

A travel blog entry by colinhardcastle


Driving further north, we decide not to get back on the I5, and instead head up towards highway 99, which eventually becomes the viaduct, right next to Puget Sound. We turn on Google Maps and plug in the address of our motel, so we stay on 99, through the Battery St tunnel, and before we know it, we are there! The motel is quite close to the …

Nirvana, Musik and "special" beer

Seattle also.
Viele bekannte Musikbands sind hier aus dem Gebiet.
Mit die bekannteste: Nirvana!

5 Minuten von unserem Hostel entfernt lag das EMP-Museum. Zu sehen gab es dort Ausstellungen über alle möglichen Musiktrends. Unter anderem Gitarren von Jimmy Hendrix.
Vor allem aber:
Eine Tour durch die Geschichte von NIRVANA!< …

Seattle to Centralia

A travel blog entry by leahbradley


This morning we were up early in the dark as usual. We waited around for the EMP to open in Seattle & got a coffee/hot chocolate from the Seattle grind. The EMP museum was really interesting. It had a massive nirvana display, jimi Hendrix & a section on leather jackets over time. They had this incredible tornado of guitars which was mind …

    Sleep-Deprived in Seattle


    We booked a room at this hotel solely for its location and price - which is admittedly never a good idea! We weren't expecting the ritz, but this hotel fell far short of even "budget accomodation". We were given a small, dingy room on the ground floor which was next to the (very noisy) laundry room. "Breakfast" consisted of stale doughnuts, some fruit and coffee. We had originally booked for 3 nights, but the next morning found us wheeling our luggage across to the Holiday Inn for the remainder of our stay in Seattle. This (along with our experience at a Travelodge in Toronto during a stop-over the night before) has resulted in us avoiding all Travelodges since then.

    Damn bear......

    I don't know what everyone's problem is.


    This hotel was great. I would have given it 5 out of 5 if it wasn't for how thin the walls and floors are. Noisy guests kept us up.

    There was a safe it the room to use and there was a small fridge as well. Parking was fine and they had a shuttle to the football game. As for the comments about being dirty and rundown, I didn't see that at all. Bathroom small? How big do you want it? It had a standup shower, toliet, and sink, what else do ya need? Great location to, meaning if you like to walk, its 3 minutes to the EMP, and about 15-20 minute walk to Pike Market.

    If you are in need of a cheap place to stay, this is your place. If you are used to 4 and 5 star hotels, maybe you should stick to them.


    Stay away.


    Stayed one night, Sept 6, 2004. Hotel is very run down and dirty. Rooms are tiny and the bathroom was the smallest I have ever encountered. Other than location there is absolutely no reason to stay here. It was awfull.

    Only as last resort


    I was on a Suntrek holiday last year, one of our nights accommodation was unfortunately The Travelodge near the Space Needle. We were charged ?100 sterling per night ($180) through our operator only to find that it is only ?65 per room ($120). so I would recommend that you check out the correct price before you book on line. The window in our room did not lock, which was not only dangerous but at around 11pm at night we could hear peoples voices from outside. To our horror there was a table erected across the road and what can only be described as a soup kitchen distributing tea/coffee ect to the needy, which is very uneasy when you are coming in late at night.I obviously complained to both the operator Suntrek and the Lodge but I received a very negative letter informing me that the hotel was wonderful and they never had any complaints. Reading other peoples comments on their experiences I see that I am not the only person with problems.We were due to spend another night at the hotel on the journey home but we declined and booked somewhere else in the College district of Seattle.

    Good Location


    Accomodation was satisfactory. Large room. All looking a bit tired but clean and tidy. Free breakfast of doughnuts and fresh fruit not to everyone's liking but, hey, we were not led to believe it was anything else. Location is excellent just a couple of blocks from the needle and monorail. May be a bit relaxed and downbeat for many but suited us fine. Price was good too with an early internet booking.

    Travel Lodge Nightmare!


    The room was dirty,in need of serious upgrading, cold and very noisy. We had to change rooms because the first one had no toilet seat and vomit in the bathtub.The pit-bull in the elevator and the children running up and down the hallways at 2am. were a real treat! This motel may be close to the Space Needle but it is no bargain.

    Good location


    I thought the motel was in a good location. Mac Donalds very close!! good view of the space needle My only complaint was I thought the room was not very clean...carpets especially looked shabby.

    Good place


    Don't listen to the negative. It's a basic hotel with a small swimming pool and whirlpool. The rooms are clean and tidy and well maintained.

    Most rooms in hotels in Seattle offer rooms with only showers or combos ( I checked), and this shower was clean and plenty big enough. The service was good. Our room was well cleaned daily, and the desk clerks were friendly and helpful. They got us shuttles when needed and any other things we needed. The contintental breakfast is only donuts, muffins, fruit and beverages, though. We wished that they had toast and cereal. We stayed here for 5 nights, and we had a fine experience.

    Certainly it is not a fancy place but it is 2 or 3 blocks from Seattle Center. I recommend it to you.

    Friendly staff good location


    I stayed in this hotel in May 2002. The staff are very friendly and the rooms a good size. The location is excellent with the Space Needle two blocks away. The only criticism is having breakfast (beverage and a muffin) served in the lobby

    Poor Customer Service


    Rooms were supposed to be available at 2:00. I had a reservation.
