“Nothing more than a place to crash”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

The only thing this hotel has going for it is it's location because it's close to downtown. When we checked in we had to sign an agreement that there is absolutely no smoking on the premises, yet our entire floor REEKED of marijuana smoke. When we checked into our room the windows were both open and the room smelled like urine. I'm assuming they were trying to air it out. I was really grossed out but it was very late and we just needed a place to sleep. The beds were also very uncomfortable and the bed spreads were that nasty polyester material. Would not stay here again!!!

I lived here for 6 weeks and found the staff and conditions very acceptable. The staff was helpful and a great source of info. The proximity to downtown and the non-chain restaurants make this a winning location. The area does do a changeover at night when it becomes more youth oriented and little rowdier plus there is an unsettling element in the area that becomes more scary at night. Like any large city being aware of your surroundings is a must and makes the stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: There is construction going on and it is less desirable to face it. However, I negotiated a lower ra...

We were on a pleasure trip to The Emerald City. We searched for a place in the downtown area so that we would be near our son and the places we wished to visit. The Belltown Inn was affordable, clean and in an excellent location. The staff was wonderful. We wish we could have stayed there longer and will definitely use this hotel again when we're in the city.

Seattle doesn't have too many affordable hotel options that are close to everything, but the Belltown inn is a great option. Very close to downtown shopping and sights, Space Needle and waterfront.

Room was very clean and smelled fresh, very nice front desk staff at all hours, no free wifi which was my only complaint about the hotel (I'd give 5 stars if it was offered). I really like that the hotel provides bikes for guests free of charge. It was a lot of fun to take out bikes and ride along the waterfront at Olympic sculpture park.

In closing, you really can't go wrong with this hotel unless you want luxury. Would definitely stay there again on any trips to Seattle.

This was perfect. In between extended travel periods for work, I shacked up here while looking for a permanent place. Clean rooms, friendly service, GREAT location in the heart of downtown Seattle. You cannot beat the price for location and amenities!

Will be recommending this to others especially if on a budget.

The rooms was cozy and warm. The area has a ton of restaurants. Walking distance to pike place. I recommend the belltown pub for dinner and drinks.
This inn was in the perfect place in Belltown and contrary to reviews the area is very safe. I plan on going back in the very near future.
