I live in Portland and was headed up to Seattle to attend one talk at 11 am on the Sunday at ComiCon. I didn't feel like driving up at the crack of dawn on Sunday so I needed a cheap place to stay that was close to Seattle. In other words I didn't need much, just a safe clean place to crash for one night. And in terms of safe and clean, they met those expectations.
That being said, if I needed to stay for more than one night I would gone elsewhere. When I first pulled up I was put off by how dirty it was outside, I realize they are doing renovations but there was crap everywhere and it looked kind of seedy even though the surrounding area is fine. I waited to check in while some guest who was admittedly very high maintenance took his time driving the women behind the counter crazy. I get it, sometime customers can be a pain in the tookiss and she did a good job of not showing him that but as soon as he left she just started complaining about him..um yea not interested, just check me in. Once I was checked in and parked around back as instructed I tried to get in the back door with the key card and it didn't work (yes I know how to use a key card) so I had to haul all my crap around to the front.
The women from the desk was out front smoking and when I told her the card didn't work she just looked at me and said "oh it should" ... AND ??? Nothing, not let me fix that for you, just back to smoking. So I haul my stuff inside and all the way back around the building again. At least the key worked in the door to the room.
The rooms are being remodeled and they are clean because of it but for the life of me I don't know who plans hotel remodels or perhaps they were just drunk when they planned it. They are bare basic rooms, perfectly fine for a short stay. The pillows are a joke and they may as well not a have any, the shower head was about 6 inches lower than me and I am only about 5'7" and the shower curtain was two inches to short which meant that I had to mop the floor when I was done. The walls are paper thin and I could hear EVERYTHING from the room next door and finally jammed my headphones in my ears so I could sleep.
I'm conflicted about this one, I mean it was only 50 bucks and it was a short drive to Seattle, but then again I have stayed in cheap hotels before and had much better experiences. I am not high maintenance, I am not a fancy accommodation person and I don't have unrealistic expectations. As I said this is what it is, a 50 dollar a night roof over your head.
