        Very close to the university, if that's where you're going. Otherwise nothing special.

        Neither particularly cheap nor particularly nice, so nothing to recommend it; but no reason to recommend against, either.

        great place to stay right near UW. Free parking, breakfast are a bonus. Have stayed here 4 times while visiting my kids at UW. My favorite university district hotel.

        The location for our needs while we were there ~ that is what I liked best. We also liked the free, secure parking, the pricing was fair.

        Didn't like the fact that there is no restaurant in the hotel, however they offer a continental breakfast in the am...just no room service. Also did not like that the walls seemed very thin. There were people leaving the hotel (on our floor) at 4:45 am and they made so much noise, we were all woken up. Plus the people on the floor above us sounded like a herd of elephants stomping around all night and in the early am. Another issue was it seemed like the staff/hotel worker ended their day at 4pm. When we called down for extra towels at 5pm, we got a recording that Housekeeping closes at 4, and were transferred to the front desk. Odd!

        The location and proximity to the University of Washington was key for us. It was also an easy off/on to the freeway and about 20 from the airport. I liked the complimentary breakfast and the little goodies in the room, ie; popcorn, coffee, tea with options of other complimentary "carts" like games and movies. We didn't use the free bikes but maybe on our next trip.

        They basically think of everything! The rooms are great - microwave, kettle, iron, coffee machine, free internet, aveda bathroom products, and microwave popcorn! etc - all the things you want if you're staying a little longer. Laundry facilities are also great. They do a basic breakfast which was unexpected, and good. I've stayed in several 5* hotels in the US who could learn something from these guys! Overall, it made my stay at UWash really memorable, so I'd highly recommend it.

        Comfortable hotel, room and good features included in room stay including parking, continental breakfast and gym. Easy access to the I5 and not far from downtown or other major attractions.

        Unfortunately, the ice machine was located outside of our room and was a bit loud at times despite signage that indicated it would be off from 8 pm to 8 am. All in all, this is a good hotel to stay at for budget conscious travellers.

        Room was well arranged, full of light. Staff professional and pleasant. Laundry facilities on every floor, free wi-fi and parking. Felt I received great value for my money.

        I like the room design, speed of check out and check in, walking distance to meals, coffee, shopping. Complimentary paper, breakfast, wifi and room safe.

        Last room was great, this one was near ice machine and very noisy during day (turn off at night) and also smelled musty. Hotel willing to change my room, would not stay in that room again.

        Free parking and great location. Rooms are nice -very comfortable; wouldn't call them luxurious. Some of the accessories (throw pillows) are starting to look a little tired. Time for a refresh.

        Stayed on 4th floor - could hear kids???? or adults tromping around loudly for hours - until well after 11 pm. Not really what we're looking for in a hotel -makes it hard to relax.
