The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The room has a kitchenette and the grocery store is right across the street. There is also a rooftop terrace. So go to the store, get some wine and cheese and watch the sun set over the sound. There are a lot of restaurants in the area and you can take the monorail to get into downtown Seattle. Also if you are taking a cruise, they have a shuttle to the piers. We were surprised that the inn does not mention this on their website. Our friends would have stayed there if they knew about this.
The location of this hotel cannot be beat. Steps away from the Seattle Center and a long walk or quick bus ride or monorail ride away from downtown and Pike Place Market. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was very clean and comfortable. I also loved that they have a little kitchenette in the room, with Safeway across the street and Metropolitan Market (best grocery store in Seattle) two blocks away. There wasn't anything I didn't like. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend and would stay here again.
Location and on-site parking were great. No AC in room. Might not matter on a typical Seattle day, but it was in the 80s and we were on the 5th floor. For $250/night, I expect to be comfortable; we had to keep finding reasons to go out because our room was so hot. Also, many different cleaning products with many different smells=a bit nauseating.
My family has stayed here two times now. We liked it so much the first time, we intentionally booked it for our following trip. The location is great! Close to Seattle center, super convenient public transportation, good food nearby- including an adorable old school bakery. The room we had was SMALL, despite us requesting a larger one at booking/online check in.
Laundry facilities, rooftop viewing area, just a few blocks from the Seattle Center. 30+ downhill walk to Pikes Place.
Although this hotel is just about a 5 minute drive to downtown, I really liked the location. It's on a corner and easy to find, there are a handful of restaurants and bars within walking distance, and it's just enough out of town to where the streets and traffic aren't keeping you up at night or waking you up early morning. There is a Starbucks connected to the hotel which is nice. Overall it is a very simple but clean hotel. Only negative thing I could say is that the pillows aren't the most comfortable, but that's a small thing to complain about. Otherwise great hotel.
The room was well done, I had great views and the bed was super-comfy! The staff was incredibly helpful and nice. I didn't like paying an extra $18 for parking
Location near restaurants we wanted to dine. No faults
Clean, simple, tasteful. Small undergroundparking area allows fast indoor access to your vehicle directly from elevator. Quiet inside the place- walls seem very thick. awful yellow paint on them however. Nice basic restaurants, beer and grocery within walking distance.
This hotel was so much better than I could have imagined. Extremely clean, friendly staff, amazing location. The rooms were very comfortable and the rooftop view was really nice. It is walking distance to the space needle and pike place market and there are tons of cute restaurants around. They have bikes you can rent and umbrellas that you can check out for free. Parking was $18/night but they did let us leave it in the lot after we had checked out.
Great Location. Clean. Great staff. Room had a great view. Short walk to Needle and other attractions. Good places to eat nearby. Would gladly stay here again. My only gripe is the room was too small with the double beds. It was a bit difficult to move around in the room. This was a minor issue and would not stop me from staying again.
Clean, friendly staff, get a corner room where there's an awesome window that opens up to the outside. We arrived and the gentleman at the desk said our room wasn't quite ready. He said "I have a single bed room available, is that okay?" To which I responded, our room is a double bed room and I pulled out my receipt and showed him, to which he then gave us the correct room. (Which was very nice) During checkout we went up and told them we were leaving and then said we owe $460. I then said, "This was already pre-paid, and pulled out my receipt." He then said "Oh yes, I see it here."
There were two things I liked. The location was stellar! If not for that we would have stayed somewhere else and forfeited our money. The front desk agent (a nice blond girl) was so polite and understanding. She deserves to work at a nicer hotel. Mildew, mold, water damage and more. It was not a sanitary place to stay. You can tell the owners picked the cheapest options for everything. We could see a homeless camp outside the window. The room was dusty and not well cleaned. At least the mattresses looked pretty new but there was no bed bug protection. Other than the room being disgusting.... Our other trouble was we found the room we booked going for less than HALF what we paid for it!!!! We paid 160 for a one queen room and the NEXT DAY it was online on the same site for 70! We booked online so there's nothing they can do about the rate. They wouldn't even refund our 20$ parking fee! I requested a call from the manager and still haven't got one. I do not recommend this place at all.
Location We were covered in bug bites after staying here. The hotel was extremely unhelpful after I contacted them and told them. I said I read other reviews (after staying here) that said they also received bites and were given compensation and then the manager had us take pictures of our bites and email them to them. Then they contacted me a few days later to say there were no bugs in the room and just left it at that. I emailed back that I was unsatisfied with their response and they still haven't replied to me.
I liked the location and the bed. The hotel is literally old and falling apart. The towels are not washed between guest visits.
The location was good. The price was high considering the basic hotel it was.Thin walls,old building,windows etc.Simply to expensive for the basic level of commodities.The bath tub was so old that look like dirty and the water didn't have any presure.Not bad overall,but too pricey.
Best part about this hotel is that it was 472 feet from Key Arena. No parking, no hair dryer, phone but not plugged in. Bathroom was clean but low shower head and toilet seat was worn out. First room we were given was under remodel, opening the door was a shock with the bathroom completely torn out, mattress in the closet and the shower/bath tub surround in the main living area. The motel is old, and it smells like it. Window air conditioner really loud and made funny noises all night but you don't dare open the windows because of transients outside wondering all night and having loud conversations. The price was bizarre but figured it being close to the event we were going to would make it worthwhile. Not the case, would not stay again even at a lower rate.
Polite staff. Very close walking distance from restruants and key arena. A/C units barley work so rooms were very hot. Beds were uncomfortable. Cold water did not work in the shower so it was impossible to shower. No available parking. We had to park 6 blocks away from the hotel.
I liked the kooky feel and old was of the building. There was only one mirror and there was no soap
Older facility with character, very clean, cute court yard and a nice quiter location. I traveled alone and it was perfect!
It was convenient, it met my need which was a place to sleep after going to a play so that I did not have to commute to work in the morning. The bed was comfortable. This place would be great in any Euro-city or even in US for someone traveling and staying on a budget. Nice little kitchen with utensils. The city noise, but that is to be expected in any older hotel in a city.
The Queen Anne has a strange allure. It is located close to the Space Needle and EMP. What it lacks in modernity and comfort it makes up for in charm. Screaming man at night. Somewhat of a gritty feel to the overall room.
Nothing. It was awful. Holes in bathroom walls, bathroom window painted shut, tile missing; old electrical wiring scary; underpowered air conditioner, smelly, Clearly a welfare hotel.
Beds were terrific- loved the individual down comforters. Bravo! The room was decorated nicely and the space was huge. The bathroom was also very large and comfortable. Loved the Tommy Bahama dispensers for shampoo/conditioner/ shower gel Our shower was large, angled, and modern with no door/ curtain. The water sprayed into the bathroom possibly causing a hazard with the mess. The pillows were VERY hard. Lastly, we thought it was very strange that the room had a teeny tiny ironing board that was 3 inches tall. Not helpful.
From the moment we checked in I loved this place. Free parking, good location and a very friendly, comfortable place. Decor was different but comfortable. Even when I looked out the window and four people were standing right below window I could barely hear them talking. I'm even considering a staycation here this summer to explore parts of Seattle I've never been to.
We went to Seattle for a quick weekend and the hotel was perfect. Walking distance to the Space Needle where there is the monorail you can take straight to the mall (roundtrip ticket is $4) and walk down to pike market. The hotel offers a shuttle but it was nice to walk a little bit and see everything on the way. Nice rooms and yummy pizza place/bar connected to lobby.
very friendly staff very cozy bed really fun interior no bathtub
My wife & I enjoyed our stay at the Maxwell. We really enjoyed its location in Queen Anne in which it was pretty easy to get to just about everything else in Seattle. Close to a lot of bus routes. You can even see the Space Needle as soon as you step out. I know they offered a shuttle service, but I really enjoy experiencing a city first hand. A lot of nice hole in the wall spots to eat & drink, nearby. Funky little hotel & friendly staff. Had a small pool in the basement & a fitness room. Restaurant in the lobby. No complaints, I would stay here again... It's not really a complaint, but the comforter was different than what I'm use to. It would actually fall off of me while I sleep.
We stayed at the maxwell this valentine weekend. The hotel is very clean and nice. We have stayed in much more expensive but this could keep up with them all. Hotel employees were very nice. I would give this hotel a five star but after i left i noticed a $27.40 charge. I called and they said it was because i took the stuffed animal that is on the bed. They said i was notified of the "adoption fee" at checkout. I was NEVER notified. I am a little grossed out to think how many people slept with the stuffed animal before i took it (a little creepy) and to think i paid $30 for a $5 toy. A very nice hotel that ruined my opinion for $30. I was even trying to get my parents to go there soon!
Room was larger than I expected and had a small kitchen area that I used to make myself tea. Free breakfast was pretty solid too. It was a little confusing at first but I love the energy efficiency that results from connecting the keycard to the power system. The air conditioning system created a strong draft over the bed. I had to turn it off to get to sleep. Also the water tasted off in some way and the pillows weren't super comfortable.
Fantastic location near Space Needle. I arrived at 11pm to find out that they overbooked. Despite being a loyal Platinum member with Hyatt, they sent me to another, far inferior location several miles away. The only logic they provided was that it was cruise season. I'm never staying here again.
Location location location. This hotel is right next to the space needle and within walking distance to downtown. Breakfast was very good, only had to wait a few minutes for a made to order omelet and the rest of the spread was also very good. Room was very nice and ample seating for several visiting friends on sofa. Rooftop deck was the perfect place to enjoy a few beers right under the space needle at night. Rooftop deck closed at 10, could be later. No other complaints, this hotel is definitely my go-to from now on when I visit Seattle.
Across the street from the Space Needle. Room was well designed, spacious and clean. Staff was very friendly. We love to walk around Seattle and this was a perfect location. Breakfast and WIFI were included. Breakfast was fair to good compared to most hotel breakfasts, however the coffee dispensers we're insufficient to keep up with demand - this was a consistent problem on each of the three days that I stayed.
