Stayed here on 7th and 8th April as we head up the west coast. Chose the hotel due to positive TripAdvisor reviews.

I stayed at Valu-Inn for an extended business trip. It was part of a Hotwire fly-stay-drive package (the best travel deal going, IMHO). Hotwire is notorious for overrating properties and Valu-Inn is much closer to a one-star than the 1 1/2 stars Hotwire gives. Still, this a remarkable little find. Although the rooms are nondescript, they are kept very clean... More

Can't complain- the hotel offered to price match my room (based on another internet search), and the rooms were clean and ready early (we landed around 7am). We also requested (and received) a micro and fridge in each room (we booked two), had no problem with parking, and found the area to be perfectly safe with many restaurants nearby. Wonderful...

Booked a stay n fly package. Overall was very impressed with the hotel. Check in was quick and friendly, room was clean and had everything we needed. Exterior of the hotel was clean and well kept.

I stay at hotels during business trips, such as this one. I just needed a room from about 9pm to 8am the next day; just a few hours. I didn't want to spend a lot but I also wanted to be able to sleep. I got the best of both worlds on this trip. Sea Tac Valu Inn was a... More

The exterior is clean. The interior is old but clean. Nothing fancy here but a great value. A simple continental breakfast (banana, coffee, and danish), parking and wifi was included. Parking lot is well lit. This motel is a bit further from Seatac Airport than most but worth the 15 minute drive. Dining and shopping options limited compared to the... More

We spent a week in the SeaTac Valu Inn while attending an opera series downtown at the Seattle Center. The accomodations are basic but clean, pleasant and great value for money. Fridge and microwave add value. The hotel has free parking and wifi (somewhat tempermental, but free). The staff was friendly and professional. At night the hotel is reasonably quiet:... More

My wife and I stayed here during the record heat wave in Seattle area in July 2009. We were staying at a friend's house in Seattle, but like most homes in this area, he did not have an air conditioning. We were tired of 90 plus heat at night and decided to look for an air-conditioned motel. For your money... More

“was close to the airport but too close to get any sleep due to late flights and they flew over the motel. also the shuttle service was parked in front of our room so we heard all the door slamming when loading and unloading, plus the lights shone in our window every time they pulled in or out!”
