“Overpriced and run down”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

I can handle a bare-bones motel that shows its age as much as the next cheapskate. What I can't deal with is paying over $100 a night for a dirty room and unusable WiFi. The bed was alright, but the stains and dirt on the floor along with the urine smell made me regret my choice of lodging. From now on, I check Yelp first. This place deserves it's bad rating. We were put in some apartments in back that were used mainly for longer stays but occasionally are used for overflow. These probably get less attention so it's possible the hotel proper has better rooms, but the photos taken by guests suggest the whole place is in desperate need of renovation.

Room Tip: Don't take one of the apartments out back, whatever you do.

Reviewed 20 June 2014

Hotel staff friendly. Hotel old and furnishings just as old. Popcorn ceilings. TV old with large picture tube (have not seen these in a long time). For what we paid for our stay, we would have at least liked hot water for our showers. No hot water, whatsoever! I had to take a very cold, sponge like shower, when I discovered after waiting about 10 minutes, that there was no hot water. This was about 9 am our first morning. For the next 2 mornings, I made sure to wake up very early to get whatever warm water, before the rest of the hotel guests woke. Even at that early morning wake up, the water was luke warm (but so much better than a cold shower, in Seattle's cold summer). I did report this to the front desk, and they did send up a maintenance repair person, but not much he could do. Boiler just not up to par. Like everything in hotel, things are old and dated.
