My friends and I do a road trip to a different NFL venue every year. This was a great place to stay in Seattle. We like to hit up a few tourist spots in addition to the stadium itself and this hotel proved the perfect location to accomplish that. It's within easy walking distance of The Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and basically anywhere downtown. If you have no problem walking, you can even walk to the stadiums with little issue (45 minutes, maybe?), which we did. As for the hotel itself, it's been recently remodeled so it's very clean and modern. The bedding was the most comfortable I've experienced in recent memory, and the breakfast is very legit (it's beyond a continental breakfast but not quite a "real" breakfast). The price was a ridiculous bargain ($75/night) but this place was so perfect for what we were looking for, I would've been happy if I'd paid $125. The staff was very friendly, great location, outstanding pricing. It's the dream scenario for a budget traveler looking for the ideal location, but it has enough frills that even a more high maintenance individual would be more than happy.

We stayed at the Loyal Inn because we wanted to be in downtown Seattle, since we only had two nights there. It exceeded our expectations in many respects. The rooms were large and comfortable, with many extra amenities. The breakfast was very extensive, with many fresh fruits, eggs, breads and even waffles.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, especially with suggestions of places to see during our rather limited time in the city. (Highlights were the Columbia Center, the second tallest building on the west coast, with marvelous views of the surrounding area, and also the Pike Street Market.)

We also appreciated the location, as it is within two blocks of the area of free bus transportation from early morning to late evening on all buses in the downtown area. This was a marvelous idea, and did much to cut down on traffic congestion.

I plan to return to this hotel in the spring of 2009.

Wanted to stay in the downtown area; am a member of the Best Western Gold Club, and decided to add some points to my balance and stay here. We are not super picky - we just need a bed after all, since we will be out and about most of the day anyway. It was difficult to find rest and comfort at this location. Besides the horrible noise pollution going on outside, the guests in the hotel do not care about being quiet at 2am either - and the staff could care less. The room was dingy, if not out right dirty, smelled like mildew, and had stains on the carpet. Tiny bathroom, not big enough to turn around in. Bad TV reception just to add insult to injury. Walls and lines felt damp (humid area, but why would that matter indoors?) Location is much to be desired, homeless people sleeping next to the hotel, and I think I actually witness a drug deal going on outside my window.... pay a few extra $$ and stay somewhere safer, cleaner and more comfortable!

This location is definitely great in relation to the downtown area and the Space Needle area. Being in such a convenient location also means we are close to many events and sometimes energy of their enthusiasm can be heard as they pass the hotel but this is rare. We definitely do care about guest comfort. Once aware of noise we warn the perpetrator(s) and if need be remove them from our property. The rooms are regularly maintained and inspected and so we believe the state of the room you mentioned is anomalous. The rooms have recently been updated with new furniture and bathrooms sizes are typical to the area hotels in general if not bigger. We also take the security of the guests seriously and have security that regularly patrol the hotel and the surrounding area. Anybody who doesn't belong is removed from property. The television reception is sometimes a little fuzzy when coming from the cable companies, but often the local channels are found on a higher channel and are clearer. I hope you visit us the next time and you will see that the experiences you've had were an unfortunate rarity.

The room that I was given had not been made up after the previous guests. The front desk promptly gave me another room, which appeared to be an upgrade. Except for the room’s carpeting, the facility was clean and well-maintained throughout. The staff was friendly and helpful; the continental breakfast had ample selections and amounts. The room’s thin floor covering appeared not to have been vacuumed. The thermostat on the noisy heating/air conditioning unit didn’t work, and the heat had to be turned on & off manually, throughout the night. The hotel is located in the downtown area, and there was some street noise. OK for business travelers and seniors. About 2 miles from AMTRAK.

Enjoy your breakfast and the thought that you are saving money -- but that is about it.

We stayed just overnight and this is the duration that I recommend to everyone.

First, if you are from outside U.S., make sure you print out the sheet (ie. travelocity or expedia page) showing that you get free parking. We had a dispute with the front desk who said they do not give free parking but if we could prove it, they would be "more than happy" to accommodate. We had to use their internet (free luckily) to print out the page and show to them.

Second, bedding linens were worn out and must have been from the 70s but were clean. Checked for roaches, etc but none so I guess they earned their 2 stars. Carpet is threadbare. You get a fuzzy TV with full cable and a reasonable sized fridge (no alcohol) and microwave. We were offput by the dispensing machines in the bathroom where you pressed buttons to get shampoo and soap. How cheap is that?

Construction in the neighborhood begins at 7am sharp where we were woken by jackhammer drill early in the morning.

Breakfast was excellent in a huge breakfast room and includes yogourt, waffles (you make your own), pastries, fruit, cereal, milk, hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels. We were disgruntled by our room but the free breakfast somewhat made us feel better.

Elevator is sometimes slow. Cleaning staff don't say hello or smile, I guess don't care about guests considering this is 2 star hotel. Take the stairs if you can.

Location is central, although seems area is kind of seedy if not dead. Lots of car lots around. You can walk to downtown within 10 minutes. They leave a card on your bed warning you to be cautious about safety in this area and maybe it is warranted.

We enjoyed Phantom of the Opera while we were there. Parking is close but expensive and around $20 for events.

Get what you pay for.
