“Funky Gem in a Great Location”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

I have stayed here 6 times now and love the place. If you have to have AC and obsequious plastic people at the desk, this is not the place for you, and yes, the elevator is weirdly slow. The staff is very helpful, particularly the young man who always seems to be there when I check in at night. He is so knowledgeable and refreshingly candid, which I really appreciate. The price is amazing for a location two blocks from Pike Place (15 minute walk to the Space Needle area and a couple of blocks from light rail, too). I have never had a problem with getting fresh towels or using the wireless connection. The coffee shop in the lobby has great coffee, even by Seattle standards. If you need quiet, the back of the hotel is better--there are a few homeless people who wander by and shout occasionally at night. For amenities, bring your own conditioner but they provide decent shampoo.

In addition to location you could add price as a selling point for The Moore. It is easy walking distance to a number of the more popular attractions including the Pike Street Market. The downside is the location which is noisy especially since in warm weather your air conditioner is the open window and the eight inch plastic table fan ( for which I was grateful ). The sound machine we travel with also helped. Our room faced the street which made for a good view and extra noise but life's made of trade offs. The room was clean if spare and the bed was comfortable. We also opted for a room with its own bath. Some might say the decor of the the hallways was funky or hip or boutique. I'd call it creepy. Any minute I expected to hear "Redrum" in a child's voice. Be forewarned about one of the smaller elevators I've seen and definitely the slowest especially the door. By the way it's the only guest elevator. All in all given the excellent location and reasonable price, it's worth checking out. No pun intended.

The location couldn't be better, it's a very short walk to Pike Place Market and many other attractions in downtown Seattle. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a suite, which meant there was a private bathroom and a separate living area with some basic cooking facilities - small fridge, two electric rings, and a coffee maker. This was just about enough to cook up a simple meal. The staff were helpful and the café downstairs served very good coffee and waffles. We had a great time in Seattle and would definitely stay at this hotel again, as it is such great value.

The Moore has a great location. Walking distance to pikes market and shopping. A little further to pioneer square. 2 blocks to the stop for the hop on/off trolley, and 3 to the monorail to get to the needle. We had room 724 which was a 2 bedroom with one room having a queen as the other had a queen and 2 singles plus a 2 piece washroom. Small kitchen with full size fridge, microwave coffee maker and complete dishes and cutlery. The only drawback was that is is a busier spot on 2nd and the traffic noise including emergency vehicles can be disrupting to your sleep. The windows open, no screens, nice air flow but then the noise comes in. Don't know if this is an issue if you get a room at the back. The hotel itself is old and has lots of character. Squeeky wood floors but very clean. Taxi to the amtrak was $6.00 and from the airport to the hotel was $52.00 in a van.

Room Tip: If you like quiet maybe a room away from the street

My 7 year old and I spent the weekend in one of the European type rooms (bathroom across the hall). It was $73 a night, clean, within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do, including the Space Needle, Pike Place market and lots of good food! I highly recommend this place. I will stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here in room 605, June 11-13. This hotel was wonderful! We had one of the suites which had its own bathroom. Everything was clean upon shall except for a stain on one of the throw pillows but that didn't bother us, just tossed it off the bed. The room had a kitchenette and a table, a queen size bed, a closet and dresser for storage, and a vintage bathtub with a showerhead. Perfect for all our needs. To future guests, it is a green hotel and doesn't have air conditioning- again not a problem for us, it was plenty cool with a window slightly cracked at night and the fan on.

The hotel is 2 blocks from Pike's market, which was wonderful and a perfect place to walk for lunch/dinner. The Moore cafe that's connected to the hotel also was wonderful. We both had waffles and coffee one morning, I went back two additional times for coffee because it was so good. Overall, great price and great location.

We were coming to seattle to stay with friends and needed a hotel one night unexpectedly. Went online and the Moore had a queen room shared bath "European style", we were a bit apprehensive about sharing a bathroom. It turned out great! It's no big deal, everyone was courteous, we didn't wait in line, people were sometimes a little casually dressed in the hall, but it occurred to me that was natural, as you were forced to use more of the hotel space than in an ensuite situation. I'm a big fan of the Moore, even more so now!
