We generally stay the night in Seattle on the way back east from Anchorage. We have used this hotel the last several trips. Super friendly staff and large clean rooms. While the restaurant isn't on site, it is only steps away under a covered walkway.

Stayed one night here and loved that you pull right up to the door, unload your bags, and turn your keys over to the parking attendant. There is a restaurant right next door with phone number in guest book in motel room. Comfy bed, very clean, low noise, slept great with a 3:00 a.m. wake up call. Will be back!!!

I've stayed at a lot of airport hotels and I don't think my standards are too high, clean, quiet, good bed, morning coffee. This hotel didn't meet expectations. First, there was a $5 charge for parking, a first for me at an airport hotel. The room was cold and the heat didn't work. Apparently management knew this since there was... More

I have never been treated so poorly by a hotel. EVER I'm on a business trip and the room is supposed to be a direct bill to them.

We stayed here twice for one night each time in August and September 2016. Room was large, clean and with a very good comfortable bed. On arrival both times we found the room to be stuffy and hot and without any ability to control the temperature. By opening the window the situation improved to some extent...but then the noise level... More

Very pleasant staff. Pet friendly hotel located within walking distance to SeaTac airport. Was concerned with possible noise from the airport, but it was not an issue at all. Rooms were very comfortable and clean.

Perfect for getting to the airport. But, forget about getting a good night's sleep. The mattress was like a trampoline. Room was average in size like most hotels in the price range. It was the bed that was the killer.
