“Friendly, helpful young staff, good basic accommodations in great location”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stayed in Seattle for three nights after our Alaska cruise ended and chose the Belltown Inn as our base of operations to explore the city. It was convenient to all Seattle attractions and bus routes. The staff were extremely helpful, with tips on restaurants for a quick breakfast and what to see first (Chihuly Gallery!). Within two hours of our arrival, I'd finished a week's worth of laundry in their little laundry room. There were Starbucks coffee packets in the room. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

We'd read the reviews about street noise so had requested a courtyard room. No problems whatsoever. Belated thanks for a very enjoyable trip!

located right near all restaurants and short bus ride to everything else. They have higher rates in the summer than the guide book tells you. No air conditioning, however they did provide two fans, barely adequate. It was relatively quiet with the window open . Only one woof as they permit dogs. Oh, and the dog park is right opposite the lobby entrance. Clean and comfortable even in its age. Freshly painted and they don't charge for water and soda from the fridge. Easy to use laundry machines and computers. Folks were really nice with no smoking making it much more comfortable.
Homeless folks are everywhere, lots of smoking locals however none in the restaurants, even the outside part.
I definitely return to this one.

Room Tip: choose an inside room, less noise

This place smells awful. It's located above an Egyptian restaurant and the leftover smells linger. The staff try to hide the smells by overdoing it with cleaners. The lobby and rooms are dated but clean, although smelly. Vagrants hangout in front and in the hotel. They yell to each other all night. Also located very close to a fire department. Expect yelling or sirens all night. Only one elevator. No free breakfast. Easy walk to several points if interest.

Good value and convenient location. Nice touch to have bikes available. Room was clean and well appointed. Being on the inner courtyard is a must. Refrig, microwave & sink made it easy to eat in room. Helpful staff at desk provided map and restaurant tips for neighborhood. I had a wonderful stay

First off all, for the price, the Belltown Inn is perfectly "okay. When walking from the light rail station I was afraid i was going to be in a terrible neighborhood, but I quickly realized I was in the trendy Belltown neighborhood. (More on this later.)

The hotel is clean, with very basic rooms, including a kitchenette. NO AIR CON, so if this bothers you beware.

There are a weird mix if patrons here. Everything from business travelers to some shady looking characters. It is hard to put into words, but this place just has an odd vibe.

The beds are NOT comfortable at all and the bathroom linens feel like they belong in a Motel 6 (small towels and not good quality cotton).

Some posts say they don't have Wifi but this is incorrect. They do have wifi but charge a fee for its use. They do have a business center.

The other nice touch is that they have free umbrellas and bikes for guests.

Now to the good stuff...this property is in the very trendy Belltown neighborhood. Great local restaurants and vara are within walking distance. (Mama's Mexican and the Belltown Pub were favorites of mine). There's also a starbucks very nearby.

Most of the hotel staff were very friendly!

I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Beeltown Inn. It's location on 3rd
Ave. made it accessible to regular bus routes. There was a grocery shop near the Inn. My room was very clean and looked like it had been recently renovated. I would definitely recommend staying there, quite close to major sightseeing ares.

Stayed here for 2 night for work. The hotel is basic but clean. They have free wi-fi and a mini fridge. The bathroom was very clean, which is great. Located a bit further away from downtown Seattle, but it's just a quick drive from the center of all the tourist attractions like Pike's Market. But you are closer to the Space Needle. Plus this place is a bit cheaper than than the other centrally located hotels. The only complain I have about this hotel is the size of the TV. The TV is a flat screen but it is barely bigger than the size of my laptop. I'm serious! Now I'm not in town to watch TV, but come on! The TV is the smallest ones I've seen in a hotel ever!
