We hadn't read the negative comments before we showed up, we might not have booked there, but we were very pleasant surprised by the actual place. Carpets were absolutely clean, room was clean and fair sized (King bed,) bathroom was as clean and shiny as in any good hotel. Location good, walking distance to Pike's Market (a must see) and to the Space Needle.
What's wrong? The reception. The lobby is about as large as your bedroom. At times people stand in line to the outside (cold in Seattle.) The only (!) clerk, a pleasant and well-proportioned gal is well over her head. Takes too long to handle anything out of the ordinary. Two other clerks at other times were equally not up to expectations.
If you can put up with the humbug of checking in, the place is good and of exceptionally good value downtown.
