Perfect location just 15-20 mins North of downtown Seattle with free parking on the street. There is a short walk to catch a $2.50 bus downtown or a $15 Uber ride. Comfortable room with a/c if needed, friendly host, and a great breakfast.

Furnishings and amenities: top rate, comfortable, attractive and user friendly. Location: excellent. Breakfast and breakfast company: excellent. Hostess: appropriately friendly and helpful but not overbearing. Overall: one of the best we've ever stayed in, no negatives.

My husband and I stayed recently and had a wonderful time. The location was convenient, rooms spacious and overall a great vibe! Owner helpful, but gives you space to get comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the other guests over breakfast. Breakfast was fabulous and the coffee yum. Best bed and breakfast we have stayed at yet.

Shelly met us when we arrived. Showed us around, made sure we were taken care of and suggested some good eating spots within walking distance. The room was perfect, comfortable bed and very clean. Within 10 minutes walking distance there are many choices for dinner. Breakfast was excellent. Everything about the stay was good.

We love staying at B&B's because it is almost like being at home and you get to meet some of the most interesting people at the breakfast table. When I saw on "Wheel of Fortune" that this B&B was one of the featured prizes I told my husband "I want to stay there!" I went online and there were rooms...

From the moment we walked up the steps and opened the front door, we felt as if we had "come home". Freshly baked cookies and cool lemonade awaited us as Shelley (hostess with the mostest) explained the house, the breakfast, the workings of our (fabulous) room. I had the best night's sleep I'd had in weeks our very first night....

Have never stayed at a more immaculate and beautiful Inn. Shelley has thought of everything, Never wanting for more. Just an amazing experience. And got to meet Phillip. Great breakfast. Great accommodations. Can't be explained how comfortable everything is. Beds, sheets, everything top notch.

Shelly was such a nice lady and wonderful host. She went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. She was very helpful in letting us know local places to eat within walking distance. This B &B is only .10 miles from woodland Park Zoo. We had to leave at 5 am to catch our flight and she thoughtfully...

We were there only for one night but we loved it! It is a very quaint neighborhood close to the bus line to downtown. Hopefully we will be back soon! Highly recommended! The décor of the home was very detailed and very clean!

9 Cranes Inn is a top of the line B&B! Three of us stayed in the Phinney Ridge room for five nights May 27 - June 1. The B&B is a 1906 craftsman home that has been meticulously restored and converted into a 4-room B&B, located in a residential area in North Seattle, within two blocks of the zoo. Our...
