Reviewed 28 June 2014

Some of the furniture looked okay, but the linens and shower curtain were stained and the rest of the room was so worn it was hard to tell if it was clean. There was no coffee pot, clock, phone, and we had to unplug the tv to plug in the fridge. The door had a big dent on the front and splintered wood around the lock where it had been forced open. A good push was all it would take to re-open it. The "lock" was in the outside doorknob-no inside locks at all, no deadbolt, nothing. We moved the chair against the door. The "pool" was a empty hole in the ground. I could hear everything upstairs, outside, the traffic from the highway.

This was the best place for a decent price in the seatac area. I went online to their website and payed less than on booking.com. Easy to get in and out, the furniture was all practically brand new, and the room was clean, the flat screen was a plus, the wifi was really good. No shuttle service but cheaper and better than the other places that were in the area.

My family has been here since Oct. 2010. I have nothing bad to say at all. The manager and his wife are lovely people. Any time we have had a problem they have gone above and beyond to fix it. The room is always clean and the housekeeping always very nice. The owner really cares about his property and customers. I would gladly come back if i need a room again. I have not had any problems with them at all. The owner has been nothing but nice. The manager and his family are very friendly. They are more then understanding about my hearing impairment and try there best to make this comfortable for me. Please give them a try before going on someone elses word.

Room Tip: Talk to the manager let them know what you need they will do the best they can.

This place needs remodeled. The furniture is old and very worn, some of it falling apart. The floors are stained, have panels under the carpet missing... There is at least on thing broken, stained, missing, or non-functioning in every room. It is dirty and nasty, and Im pretty sure the owner hates women.
