“A very good Best Western Plus Hotel in Kent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

This Best Western is a very good place to check in if you need to stay in Kent or in the southern Seattle area. All employees are very friendly, helpful and professional. The Hotel is very well maintained and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I had a back-room with a small balcony facing the golf links and this was really nice! The breakfast was only ok, but a very nice event is the weekly manager's reception (on tuesdays), offering microbrews, wine, and cheese. A very nice idea and very popular, a lot of hotel guests attended.
You need a car here, of course! Freeway access (Interstate 5) is approx. 2 miles away, and a Safeway, Starbucks, BK or McDonalds, just to name a few, are approx. 1 mile away.
If I return to the area, I will go to this Best Western again. Definitely!

This hotel was very well maintained and provided excellent service at the front desk. Always pleasant and friendly, with warm cookies in the afternoon as a bonus. The service in the breakfast room was always present, and kept everything fresh and clean. The rooms were spacious and in great shape. They even passed the approval of our 4 young adult children who normally have something to complain about. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. A very peaceful lobby view overlooking the adjacent golf course.

All of the recent positive reviewers have said it all, so what can be added? The location is great (even for non-golfers), the view across the golf course very, very nice, especially in the evening sun, and the breakfast room is small, but the choice is good!. We enjoyed the really good beds and the 24h availability of Coffee in the lobby area. The coffee could be stronger though (the machine would allow for less water per serving, but this function seems blocked). Most Americans tend to be very afraid of caffeine, so that explains it all! The cookies were also great.

Booked online with hotel website no problem. No rude surprises. Staff attentive and courteous. Room and common areas clean. Coffee 24 hours in lobby area with fresh fruit and at times cookies. Breakfast had variety of cold and hot foods.
Felt safe. No issues with parking. Had golf course view. Had a guest next to us that seemed to be speaking very loudly on the phone early one morning and another early morning could hear the lobby desk employee speaking on phone as they were also speaking very loud into the phone and their voice carried. Other than these 2 times we did not hear other guests. Could hear running water for showers in am from room next door. Convenient to airport, shopping, and highways. Will stay again if ever in the area. Great value.

I was a little leery of staying at a hotel in a mall, but the reviews were good, and it backed up to a pretty golf course. Arrived at around 8:30pm after driving a long way, we were sleepy and hungry. We asked the man who was checking us in for a suggestion of where to eat, and he said the China Star Restaurant was good. It was in the same mall, so we went over - looked like a hole in the wall in front, but in back they had a surprisingly elegant restaurant with a beautiful view of the golf course. Food & service were great, and cost reasonable. The hotel was very clean, nice, and the bed & pillows were so comfortable. The bathroom was very well lit, which is rare in many hotels. They had a wonderful continental breakfast - with waffles, eggs, and sausage. I would recommend this place. It was nice. We didn't use the hot tub, so don't know how that is, but judging by the rest of the place, it probably is nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the golf course view, and do take advantage of the breakfast.

The property does not look like much when you drive up, it's the anchor of a strip mall. But when you get inside it has all the things you need for a moderate stay. It's an older hotel but has been maintained very well. The rooms are large and clean. If you are going to spend any time in the room at all you need to ask for a golf view. The courtyard view is basically a parking lot. The golf view is right on the golf course, I watch the plays putt on the 7th green. nice breakfast bar with eggs and sausage as well as make your own waffles and all the rest of continental offerings. Fresh fruit and fresh coffee are available 24/7 in the lobby. Hot tub and sauna were clean and nice as well as a fitness room with treadmills. Free Wifi worked great and fast. For a 2-3.5 star hotel I would give it a 5, but for people just looking at TA ratings I gave it a 4 so that expectations were reasonable. It's not a 4-5 star hotel, but it's not marketed as such. Close to Southcenter shopping plaza, about 15 min to airport. I was on a working stay for 3 days and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Golf course view- not plaza view (parking lot)
