    Very clean hotel, friendly front desk service and quiet. My room opened up to the courtyard instead of the street and it was very relaxing listening to the water fountain when I had my window open. It was April so the weather was mild and I was very comfortable in the room. Having a wire instead of wireless for my internet connection wasn't a problem at all, especially since the desk in the room was large and comfortable to spread out my work. The TV was a smaller size than I have seen in some hotels but it was perfectly fine for me and provided company and some noise so that I didn't feel lonely. The bathroom was a decent size with a brand new tub. I was happy with the sink, fridge and microwave. Whole Foods was just a few blocks away so I stocked up. The location was steps away from great restaurants and the Bell Harbor Conference Center where I spent my days. I felt fairly safe walking around the area but it is a good idea to use common sense when in an urban downtown city. All in all, I would stay at this hotel again, anytime. I had a great experience staying there. Would recommend it for anyone who likes a great value for a reasonable price. Close to attractions like the space needle, pike's market, and great restaurants. I was also able to take the light rail there and back from the airport which only cost $5 round trip. And the buses are free in certain zones. And then when I got to the airport I found that SeaTac has free wireless. What could be better?

    I was very happy with my stay at the Belltown Inn. Not only was it the cheapest hotel I found it was very conveniently located, the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. The room we had was on the small side but I really only use a hotel room for sleeping so I don't see that as an issue. I liked that they had an in room kitchenette with a mini fridge and free bottled water, sodas, popcorn, and of course coffee. They also have bikes that you can use for free if you're so inclined. My only complaint is that they don't offer free wifi, but they do have a couple of computers that you can use for free so that kind of makes up for it. They also have their own parking lot with reasonable rates. As for the neighborhood, it is very centrally located. You can walk or take the monorail to all of the sites. I felt safe leaving my car there overnight. It did get a little sketchy late at night (2am) but most places are at that time and I never felt threatened or unsafe. We went in March so the lack of AC wasn't an issue although I did have to open the window one night because the room was stuffy.

    i liked my stay, hotel was super clean.. it was like a little studio (well it is a studio, they rent out monthly too).. . it had a small kitchenette with fridge and microwave..
    the bathroom was clean.. everything seemed fairly new

    the location was the best part.. it was close enough for everything.. space needle was only a 10 min walk.. downtown a 15 minute walk.. to pike's place.. a 8 minute walk.....

    the price is a bit pricey i think.. but then the other hotels close to downtown are more than double...  the staff was super friendly too...

    i would give it 4 stars if i didn't see a cockroach on my bed.. *eick!*

    SUMMARY
    The hotel and staff are great...the location is bad...but it's within walking of the beautiful parts of downtown Seattle.

    THE UPSIDE
    We recently moved from San Diego and had to stay here for a little over a month.  The hotel and staff were great, and the rooms are well priced for their size.  The room we had was near the inner patio of the area (as compared to being off the street), and although the patio area can get loud at times, the staff seemed to keep it under control... however, the sound proofing between the rooms was just ok.

    THE DOWNSIDE IS THE LOCATION - not only did I feel unsafe leaving my girlfriend in that area during the day, I felt unsafe (mind you my father was a police officer in Compton, Ca for 35+ years so I'm not easily rattled when walking down the street). So you have to keep your eyes open during the day, and be smart if you decide to go out at night.   We even heard people who were on the bottom floor complaining that people would come up to the window at night and try to sell them drugs.  To make matters worse, I parked my car in the open parking lot that's contracted to work with The Belltown, and someone STOLE GAS OUT OF MY TANK. Can you say, ghetto!  So make sure you request their indoor parking facility, and if it's not available make sure you can put a lock on your gas tank. The good news is that once the Sr. Management heard about they problem, they immediately provided me access to the indoor lot.

    I stayed with these guys on a few occasions. The first couple of times they were pretty good. They had a good team at the front desk and the rooms were clean.

    The second time was just as good.

    The third time, there was this real nasty front desk girl with piercing in her face who seemed like all she wanted to do was tell the guests they were wrong. I made sure I did not speak with her. I was there for a month and every time she was at the front, she was confrontational with the guests. Im happy I did not have to speak to her. Im sure she's ruined many potential repeat customers.

    The fourth time, I was quoted 3 different prices from 3 different people.
    When I finally got my room, the TV, internet and TOILET did not work. YUP, the toilet!
    I was supposed to stay the month but ended up leaving after 2 nights.

    Overall, the place is clean and most of the staff are nice.
    However that nasty front desk girl and a few other things have made me stay elsewhere.

    If you book, it seems you have to negotiate for the proper price.

    No air conditioning! They give you a fan and tell you to prop open the door.  The room smells of exhaust from the passing traffic.  This negates anything good about the place.  Could have sworn I heard gunshots last night.  Forget about getting any sleep with the dog park across the street, the fire station a block away and the sirens blaring all night.

    i was glad to get a room close to the pikes market and ferry terminal. the room was a bit too loud for me and my wife. a lot of street noise and the room fan ran all night to keep cool.the staff was nice but they gave me my luggage and a couple of other bags too......just a mistake i guess.

    The hotel itself is decent and has been recently renovated, but the location is super sketchy. I loved that we were able to walk to Pike Place and the Space Needle, but I definitely wouldn't walk around our hotel late at night. Also, parking sucks balls in this area. There is either no parking or you have to pay a lot to park in one of the lots.

    My feelings on the Belltown Inn range from very positive to very negative, depending on what we're talking about.

    For some background: I recently relocated from NYC to Seattle and spent the month of January at the Belltown Inn for my temporary housing. The situation was set up for me by the relocation company I worked with.

    Here are my thoughts:

    -Rooms-
    First, do not let them place you in room 135 under any circumstances! This was the room they had me in for my first night's stay and it's literally in the middle of the lobby. There is no privacy whatsoever and you can literally hear every comment made in the lobby. You can also hear the elevator and the ice-maker as if they were in your own room. My first night stay I wanted to just pack my bags and head back to NYC. I was miserable. That said, they are well aware of the issue and when I walked up to the front desk the following morning, the knew immediately what I was going to ask and were already finding a replacement room for me. The replacement was great. There was no view, but it was incredibly quiet which I prefer. The rooms are simple and small yet comfortable. There's a television with cable, a full size bed, desk and tight bathroom. There's also a kitchenette with refrigerator and hot plate.

    Honestly, after a month's stay, I was dying to get out of the hotel mostly because of the size of the room. That said, for a few nights stay it's probably not too bad.

    -Premises-
    The hotel is kept exceptionally clean and the courtyard and rooftop are great. There is a small room with two computers that offer Internet access, but there's NO wireless in the rooms! Crazy...

    It should also be noted that the hotel is extremely dog friendly. I had my dog staying with me for the entire visit. If you're afraid of dogs or just don't like them, this may not be the place for you.

    -Location-
    The location of the Inn is unfortunate. By day, the park across the street is a dog park. By nightfall, it's literally a crack den wrought with transients and drug addicts. I'm from NYC and even I felt a little unsafe walking around when it was dark out. That said, walk two blocks away and you're in the heart of Belltown which has great restaurants and bars. The hotel is also located within the "Ride Free" area of downtown, so you can hop on the bus for free and head to the city center during weekdays. That ride is only about 10 minutes. Great plus!

    -Service-
    Service here was really touch and go. Half of the people at the front desk were extremely friendly and accommodating. After a months stay, they got to know me and I got to know them. They offered restaurant recommendations, coins for the laundry machine, stamps, etc. There were a couple of girls who worked at the front desk who always seemed to be in a terrible mood. Honestly, I'm not sure why they weren't fired just for being grumpy all the time. The maid service came weekly for me (since I was a monthly visitor) and did a great job.

    My Husband and I stayed here for three nights. The staff is wonderful and everything is walking distance. Parking is horrible good luck getting a parking sticker form the hotel if they  have one if you get one its $20 dollars a day. Parking on the street is hard to find and you still have to pay for it. No internet in the rooms unless you pay $5 dollars a day for a modem. Internet is free down in the lobby if there is a computer open. If you get a room here make sure you ask for a room facing the court yard. Traffic is loud and your up by five. All in all we had a great stay.

    More than worth what you're paying for it.  It's not the Ritz or the Four Seasons, but when you're paying roughly $90/night if you're staying under a week, you shouldn't expect that.

    Kitchenette is great and they restock a bottle of water, Coke and Diet Coke, Starbucks coffee, and microwave popcorn daily!

    Cons: No A/C.  Not an issue at all right now, but if it were very hot I can imagine it would be annoying.  There is a ceiling fan and an additional tower fan in my room.  There is heating with a thermostat in the room.

    The rooms are small.  It's fine.

    No WiFi.  For a small fee they will give you a modem and ethernet to use in your room and they also have computers in the lobby that you can use.

    It's incredibly clean and exactly what I need while working on my Master's in a distance program at UW...in Seattle for a long weekend every couple months.

    this place is a real find!  the rooms are clean and new. comes with a kitchenette with a microwave. nice rooftop deck. mini courtyard. comfortable place.

    the hotel staff is extremely friendly and always up for recommending places to eat or go. we actually got to the hotel around 12p and were planning to just leave our bags and come back to check in but they were able to switch us to an open room. awesome! convenient business center with free internet access.

    it's within walking distance to places like the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Seattle Public Library, etc. it's also right at the beginning/end of the free bus zone so you can take advantage of that. bus stop is right across the street. also across the street is a mini market. very convenient for picking up essentials like water. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area. the area gets pretty lively at night but the inn doesn't get noisy.

    i'm really glad i happened upon this place. they have really good pricing, good location and are clean. i would most definitely stay here again. =)

    Reasonably priced. A little out of the hustle and bustle of downtown, but not far enough that walking is not possible. Pike market place and the space needle were close enough, close to transportation as well. Staff was very accommodating.

    Much like what other reviewers are saying, the hotel and staff are nice, really close to Pike's Place market and on the free fare portion of the bus route (at certain times). The neighborhood around it...well that's another story. There is no shortage of drug dealers, street walkers, pimps and crack fiends walking around the area...yet I still felt fine walking around at night. There was enough going on around the hotel, and hipsters were all over the place...if something were to happen, I'm sure a hipster would stop to 1) analyze the irony of my situation and 2) tweet that I needed help...anyhow, the message will get across and I'll get some help.

    I am a fan of the Belltown Inn. I just moved here from out of state. I was able to pull up into town and be ready to start work right away. They are super flexible. You can stay daily, weekly, monthly...
    It is central, it is clean, the staff is awesome- esp Susan during the week- and it is a great bargain. I needed a place to stay in a fix and the Belltown Inn was great. Nice little studio with cable and Starbucks in the room. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars from me is that the neighborhood is kind of scary. It gets a little boisterous out there at night and sometimes it gets loud. But the hotel is 100% safe and clean. I would stay there again.

    I am on the fence with this place because the rooms were newly remodeled, the bathroom was super nice, the products were great, the towels were fantastic... but the kitchenette didnt drain, the internet did not work whatsoever, apparently they are getting wireless.  Kinda strange since it is in such a hipster area.  It was super close to everything, with lots of restaurants a few blocks away.  We did get a room with no AC, and on the first floor overlooking the construction site, that started up at 8am as well as had bars on the window.  But for the price it wasnt bad.  At night it does get sketch, the hotel is on the free bus line so the area is a little on the iffy side, plus we got a guy that decided to pee right outside the window at 2am.  Very classy.  The fire engines run this road all night too, so be prepared to bring ear plugs.  For the price it was eh to ok.  Also they have parking you have to pay for across the street, and lots of road work going on.  Be prepared to drag your stuff to the hotel.

    I've stayed here a handful of times. Every time the staff have been helpful. The place is clean as are the rooms. We most recently stayed there on a Sunday night and had a great experience. The place has reasonable rates for where it is located just a few blocks away from the Pike Place Market. It doesn't have A/C but neither do most homes in WA so that wasn't a real issue although would be a preference for me. Another small down side is that there isn't WiFi. Other than a couple small things it's a great place to stay and if the need arises again I would stay there again for sure.

    Right in the middle of restaurant central (quality ones at that), few blocks from the LInk Light Rail that'll take you to and from airport, comfy beds, helpful staff and real hair dryers. This will be my go-to hotel when I go back to Seattle, which will be often.

    What a killer deal!!
    Found this place through Hotels.com and got 40% off my 3 night stay.
    Since there werent a lot of reviews on this place, I was a bit hesitant to book the place. But, hey, Ill try anything once.
    Being a bit OCD, I usually plan my trips down to the T. When trying to figure out how to get to the hotel from Sea-Tac,  I called Belltown and they recommended a town car service for only $38 bucks!!
    You cant get a taxi that cheap.
    So anyways little thing like this make the Belltown Inn a killer deal. Not to mention that they have a free business center (Computers with free internet access), complimentary Starbuck coffee in your room, a roof top deck overlooking the water, and very clean and new rooms.
    the creme de la creme of this hotel would be the location. Just a couple blocks from Pikes Place, Space Nettle, and downtown.
    I would definetly stay here again.

    Reasonably priced, especially given the great location close to downtown, Seattle Center, etc.    Very clean, updated, yet smallish rooms.  The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.  I felt like they went above and beyond to make you feel welcome and are able to answer any question you have.  The area around the Inn is obviously still in various stages of gentrification, so yes, there are some low-lifes drifting on the periphery, but I never felt unsafe, day or night.  Fantastic dining within 2 blocks of the Inn.  Great stay, would do so again in a heartbeat.

    We stayed 5 days and 4 nights - 3rd floor facing 3rd Ave. The front desk people are amazingly friendly and super helpful with all sorts of information - from food to buses. They even called around and looked online for a restaurant that had fried oysters.

    The room had a microwave, mini-frige and cabinet space and sink area - perfect for us to make snacks and sandwiches. They even give you 2 free cokes and a bottle of water in your mini fridge. Also coffee maker with coffee and microwave popcorn.

    There are 2 computers in the lobby to use and the first 5 prints are free and the extras are ,25cents - not shabby. They also have bikes to use - free of charge. The stairs are the best way to go - the elevator takes FOREVER!!! They also have a small rooftop patio with chairs - you can even see the Spaceneedle.

    There is a mini-mart on the opposite corner - a little pricey but you can get a few things there if needed. We walked down to Whole Foods - it's a a little bit of a walk but you get to see more of Seattle. There is a dog park across the street - we enjoyed watching the dogs run and play with one another.

    I strongly recommend anyone staying here - there are lots of people they referred to as "MONTHERS" staying there. There are lots of people staying there on extended stays.

    We will be visiting Seattle again and we will be staying at the Belltown Inn and we will tell everyone we know to stay there.

    This review represents a very unfortunate turn of events for the Belltown Inn. Why? You see, as I type this, the Pacific Northwest is in the midst of one of the longest and most intense heatwaves on record. Temps have topped 100 degrees every day for the last 4 days, and life is generally awful.

    What does this have to do with this simple little hotel? Well, the Belltown Inn lacks air conditioning. That's right, no AC. Generally, you can count the days that this matters in Seattle on one hand. That's not much help as I sit here in my room, dripping sweat while I try to type. It's now 75 degrees outside, but my room is still a balmy 85 degrees. Yikes.

    Everything else about this place is pretty passable. The rooms are small and spartan, but the rooftop deck offers a great view (and a great place to escape your superheated room). It's close to the best entertainment in Belltown (yet another way to keep from sitting in your godawful hot room). They don't have wireless internet, but they offer a DSL modem for $5/night (which helps pass the time in your own personal oven... notice a theme here?)

    I wish I could be nicer, but I just sweated through my second shirt of the night. How unfortunate.

    I stayed here for a weekend and had a great experience. The rooms were a good price ($90/night when I was there) compared to other locations and all the hotel staff I interacted with were incredibly friendly.

    The bed in my room was pretty comfortable, the room was very clean, kitchenette was convenient. The only downfall for me was the noise from the fountain in the courtyard, but of my group I was the only one bothered by that. There is no free wireless in the rooms, but you can get a modem/cables from the front desk for $5/day.

    The location is perfect - walking distance to all the touristy things we went to (Pike's Place, Space Needle, shopping, etc) as well as surrounded by bars/restaurants. You can also check out (not rent, check out for free!) bikes for the day with the front desk staff!

    more like 4 stars, but -1 for no wifi or inroom free internet ($5 per day for a modem).  Shouldnt be the case in the PacWest.

    Rooms were small ,but adequate.
    Shower pressure and temperature were Excellent  (stayed in enough cheap hotels to appreciate this feature)
    We read that the sound proofing wasnt great - but we didnt hear anything from our neighbors (hope they can say the same...)
    great place to stay if you're an exhibitionist...rooms face each other across the courtyard.  The blinds are good if you are feeling a bit less showy...

    Best feature of this hotel- the front desk staff.  Each and every question was answered with a smile, and great recommendations.  Almost like having your own Yelp team!

    Some reviews said the area is pretty sketchy - we didnt find this at all.  Felt safe where ever we went.  The street people at home are more confrontational than any we encountered here.

    Wife's 2 complaints: no in room hair dryer (but we got one from the front desk) and no full length mirror in the room.  Apparently that's a bad thing.

    We'd easily stay here on our next visit to Seattle.  Like the area, love the staff.

    This review comes to you from my 12 X 12 room here at Belltown Inn via a pirated wireless signal because they don't have wireless.  As I sit at this desk, watching the Miami Dolphins who inexplicably look like NC State  on the 15" computer monitor they advertise a a flat screen, all the while being serenaded by  aggressive bum chatter coming from the open window  I have to have opened because there is no air conditioning.  Believe me: if this room didn't smell like toxic cleaning product I would close the window.

      Perhaps I'm a bit jaded from the gauntlet of hood rats I had to navigate on the street to get to this place.

    The staff were plenty friendly.  I hope to never see them again

    Stayed here for three days and I will definitely be back.

    Some people complain on other rated sites about the smell of Indian food that permeates the halls, but I for one, love it.  Made me want to invite myself to dinner.

    Nicest front desk people ever.  I used to work in five diamond hotels, and can say that these guys all give the same, genuine, and gracious service.

    They think of everything for the business traveler.  Hotel is close to everything, and the courtyard rooms are definitely the way to go.  

    Didn't like seeing three grungy dogs walking in through the lobby, but hey, pet friendly is all the rage these days.

    This place was excellent for the price. It has a small kitchen, modern/updated bathroom, clean rooms, and newly repainted walls. Overall my stay here was great.

    One thing to note is that there is no AC! We were there for some cool nights so this wasn't an issue. If it's hot and muggy out it may not be that pleasant.

    Great hotel, just the basics but they do it well! Location is perfect with loads of bars, clubs and restaurants. It's a 10 minute walk to the space needle, the market and west lake area. Oh, had a blast on the roof. Thanks for the accordion entertainment Pavel!

    How did so many reviewers not methion there is NO PARKING provided.  Was very disapointed to find that my parking choices were either street parking or in a lot 2 blocks away.  

    To go along with that there is no loading/unloading area so your choices are to either circle the block until you can find street parking, or park 2 blocks away and drag all your luggage to the hotel.

    Other issues with this hotel: Air Conditioning (usually not a problem but is occassionally needed), no WIFI (but you can plug in if you have your own internet cable since we all travel with one), lots of homeless in the area (was concerned about car parked on the street), was disapointed that we were not given notice of construction happening next door to the hotel as the noise from that (and the traffic) was excessive.  Also had poor blinds that didn't stop the room from being bright at 6am.  

    To top it off, we had a prostitute working down the hall from us (we know this from the 3 different johns we saw her with and listening to her talk about making "easy money" on the phone outside the hotel)

    It isn't without some pluses though, as everybody has said there is ample landmarks and restaurants around.

    I will not be returning

    We were very disappointed in this hotel. The room cost us 180/night on a Sunday night. For that price, there was no parking, no free wifi, no Air Conditioning (and it was super hot) and our room faced constructions which woke us up at 7am. Not recommended and we would not stay there again.

    DO NOT STAY HERE. Find another hotel run by professionals.

    For the price of this hotel you can stay at any number of downtown hotels that have what you expect in a hotel:

    Air Conditioning
    Television
    WiFi

    I walked into the room in August - room temp was 85, they had an oscillating fan in the corner.  I open the window to get a breeze (normal for the northwest) but this hotel is on a very busy intersection so I got 3 hrs of sleep because of constant bus traffic, trucks, car horns, sirens on top of the 80 degree temp that the oscillating fan/breeze combo had settled on for my room.  Also, the bed feels like it is out of a highway motel on Rt. 30 in Chicago Heights.

    The TV is a computer monitor.  WiFi is not available in the hotel.

    I had 2 nights booked, I went to the front desk at 3 am to cancel my 2nd night because I could not fathom paying for a second tour of the miserable experience I was enduring.

    Fortunately - I cancelled the 2nd night and was able to book an actual hotel w/ real television, AC, and comfortable accommodations.  

    Do not trust the granola mixed reviews on this place - it has all the amenities of a Motel 6 from 1988.  

    Steer clear.

    The location: This place is all about location. You can easily walk almost anywhere downtown, including Pike Place Market (if that's your thing). It's also located right on a major bus line and close to a LINK light rail station (that you can take to the airport). If you're into biking, you can rent bikes from the front desk for free. There were plenty of solid dining options around as well. The area seemed safe to me and I didn't encounter anything out of the ordinary.

    The hotel: The staff was helpful when asked questions but pretty much kept to themselves. Checking in and out was a breeze. The lobby elevator was dreadfully slow and you can't use the stairs since they are for emergency exit only, so be prepared to wait.

    The room: The interior of our room was small and a bit dated, but it seems like they have taken pretty good care of it through the years. The TV was tiny to the point of being unusable and there wasn't any WIFI, though you can pay for a wired connection if you're desperate. Our unit had no AC and it was unusually warm during our stay which made our room slightly unpleasant to be in. However, there was a ceiling fan so it wasn't entirely unbearable. We had a small kitchenette but there weren't any dishes inside the cupboards, which was a bit odd, but it did have a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker (which comes with free Starbucks coffee). We slept on a queen size bed. Coming from a California king bed with a Tempurpedic mattress, it left much to be desired and felt a bit cramped for the two of us. The walls were paper thin. Luckily we got a unit facing the courtyard and relatively quiet neighbors. For a downtown hotel, overall it was pretty quiet. Be prepared to put up with the occasional siren or drunk person yelling outside, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Overall impression: we enjoyed our stay and I felt that we got a good deal on the place. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay downtown on a budget, but I would caution them to temper their expectations.

    What I don't think people understand about the pricing in Seattle is, its an incredibly expensive place.  Tax included (its TEN PERCENT there), $89 a night is seriously nothing.  Sure, you can get a four star hotel for $89 a night off Priceline in, like, Austin or something, but NOT Seattle.  Trust me, I tried.

    I'm really not high maintenance when it comes to hotels; I've stayed in everything from five star hotels in San Diego to a La Quinta in such a bad part of Phoenix, we weren't allowed to leave the room at night.  As long as my hotels have really clean bathrooms and don't smell like smoke, I'm good to go.  The Belltown far surpassed both these requirements.

    The location is absolutely perfect as its in walking distance between both downtown Seattle and Seattle Center, the buses you catch are free (downtown, they're always free), and its about two blocks from the Light Link station (which you can take to and from SeaTac).  They have free computers you can use downstairs, and they have FREE BIKE RENTALS.  As someone who absolutely loves to bike around to explore cities, this feature, to me, was amazing.  I also had good experiences with every person at the front desk, they were really friendly and willing to help you find something to do and how to get there.

    All the rooms are non-smoking (thank god), are decent in size, and are clean (super clean bathrooms!!!).  They have small-ish TVs and little kitchenettes, but we didn't use either (if you're just visiting, seriously, why would you even want to? You're in Seattle.)  They must have put pillow-tops on the mattresses since some of the other reviews because I didn't find them to be hard at all.

    As far as the "bums"... if you have panic attacks when you see a homeless person, or you grew up in a super-cushy suburb and this is your first time out, this might not the place for you.  You might want to just stay out of large cities, actually.  If you've ever been to San Francisco or New York,  you'll laugh at these reviews about the Belltown Inn being in a bad neighborhood.

    If your moving into town and your looking for a reasonably priced place to stay, this is your best bet.
    It's close to Belltown's many restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
    The noise from the street does get loud on the weekend so if your a light sleeper make sure you get a room that faces the courtyard.
    The staff are very friendly and this place is
    well worth the money.

    Expectations were exceeded for this moderately priced hotel near downtown.  Don't expect the Four Seasons though.  

    Great staff (and a lots of staff generally), WiFi in room worked well (so I guess this is new based on the prior reviews--but it is an extra charge) and clean, comfortable rooms.  

    Best of all is that you can walk everywhere downtown, although don't expect the immediately surrounding area to be suburban pristine--it is the essence of an eclectic city neighborhood.

    I'd stay there again on my next trip to Seattle.

    If I ever need to stay in Seattle again, I will be calling the Belltown Inn. We took a gamble and found the super cheap hotel and booked 4 nights for our trip to Seattle.

    Our experience started with a bang when my fiancee called the Belltown to see if we could check in early (since our plan arrived @ 11am and check-ins aren't until 4pm). Checking in early wasn't a problem and the person on the phone was more than excited to make sure how we knew exactly how to get to the hotel.

    Once we got to the hotel, we were met by an exuberant staff that took us under their wing and made sure we knew the lay of the land. The Belltown Inn is in close proximity to many bars, restaurants, coffee shops and the two major Seattle attractions the Space Needle and Pike's Place Market.

    Our four nights in the Belltown Inn were fantastic, The room had a mini fridge and sink so we were able to make ourselves right at home.

    The only drawback was having to set up the internet yourself (for $5 a night), but it is a fiber connection giving you more than enough bang for your buck.

    I will definitely be coming anytime I am in Seattle!

    We were in town for PAX prime, it was my brothers and I. We came to check in granted it was really late cuz our flight was delayed, tried to open e door, it was locked. Given the area, I can't blame them. The front desk lady practically yelling thru the intercom said "are you staying here?!" I responded "yes." She pushed a button to open it. We came in and stated we were checking in, she acted as if we were interrupting her night. My brother was the one speaking, he looks a bit young, but it was under his card and I was too tired to handle it tonight. She looks at us and says you all better not be in the same room, cuz I can't allow that, he let her know that my aunt and cousin were At the hotel and one of us was going to be staying there. Her response in her ever so charming tone was, you better be. Hmm... Then she keeps repeating that we better not be in the same room cuz only two people can be there. My brother repeats about our aunt, but she says it again... So, I've had enough of her attitude, and using her exact same tone said as slowly as possible "our aunt is on floor 3 and one of us will be staying there." She finally stopped. We finished checking in and asked if that was e only elevator, her response was "um, we'll yeah!" What a peach... The rooms air conditioning didn't work, this was a painfully hot weekend in Seattle. The room was clean and the rest of the staff was great. First impressions are key tho, that awful woman ruined our impression of that place, the heat made it harder to like. The rest of the stay was good tho and checking out the front desk person was much more pleasant.

    We chose to stay here because of its location.  After reading other reviews, it seemed a logical choice.  We made sure to get a "quieter" courtyard room.
    The staff were very courteous, helpful and friendly.  The location was great.  The offsite parking across the street could be improved.
    The quiet courtyard room as the desk clerk called it, was not quiet.  The sound bounces around the courtyard into the rooms.  There's a fountain that runs 24/7 which adds to the noise.
    The room is small but clean.  
    Bottom line, if you want convienient downtown hotel this is a fair choice.

    The Belltown Inn. The location is great - a short walk to either the Market or the Seattle Center. I've seen a few people mention that this area is in a bad neighborhood because there are some homeless people around. Totally false. Maybe this is Seattle's ghetto? I am not sure.

    The staff at the hotel were alright. They didn't really seem too stoked that me or my girlfriend were there but they were helpful if we had any questions.

    The room was clean and organized. There was a kitchenette which had a sink, microwave, fridge, and some cabinets. The bathroom was nice and clean. Queen-sized bed. There wasn't too much extra space in the room though. They had a huuuuge CEO-looking desk that took up a chunk of the room which kind of sucked. No wi-fi. Internet was an additional 5 bucks a night and connected through an ethernet cable but it was solid and consistent.

    Overall it was a pretty decent stay but I think I'll try somewhere else next time.

    Stayed here for a month with my boyfriend and our cat in the little courtyard they have on the ground floor, cause of a move from the east coast.
    The staff is friendly, very knowledgeable of the area and things to do and it's located close to a lot of touristy things.
    It's right across a doggy park which can be a little smelly at times but luckily it's maintained very well (cleaned every night/morning) and you get to look at happy and cute dogs running around. If you're worried about barking from the doggy park, don't. The only barking I've heard were from dogs (and people) that were staying in the hotel.

    The front desk was very responsive to concerns/complaints.
    Like in our case there was a baby screaming/crying (as if in pain, not for attention) and this happened 2 nights in a row. The first night we just closed the window but the second night it went on for literally hours and I called the front desk to see if anything could be done. The man was very apologetic and said he would contact them again and see if it could be resolved.
    The other disturbance was a man who was screaming out of the window some obscenities and either came off of some drugs or was mentally ill. I don't know if anybody called for that, but that was taken care off as well.

    If you're not familiar with big city life, I can see it might be a little intimidating at night to be in that area. But there's really nothing shady about it. I've talked to some homeless people passing by and some 'street pharmacists' and they're all very friendly as long as you treat them with respect and as humans. Have some compassion and you'll be just fine.

    The only minus I can think of is the internet connection in the room. It's at an additional cost and they give you wires and a modem but it's very slow and the modem had to be reset at least twice every day.
    They do have 3 computers in the lobby for free use and they are really fast.

    I would absolutely recommend staying here for both short and long stays.

    Really this place deserves higher stars for the flexibility, since you can rent nightly, convert to weekly or monthly rates as you go.  Very handy for indefinite schedules.  I will say, for one night there are better deals to be had.  Check priceline's name your price with 3 - 4 star hotels in this area and you may be very happily surprised for $89.  Unless it is tourist season, for less than a week stay, the Belltown Inn is a bit overpriced.

    Most of the front desk staff are great.  There are a few sour pusses who I decided weren't worth dealing with in any capacity.  Definitely lost a star.  Kudos to the majority of staff members who are very helpful, friendly and courteous.  The Manager is caring and occasionally visible.  He resolved my issues, when the sourpuss wouldn't.  

    The sound proofing or lack there of, also loses a star.  If you get lucky and don't get neighbors or they go to sleep when  you do.  Then no problemo.  Unfortunately, on a few occasions I had very loud neighbors.  Those nights Earplugs were Required!

    The beds are very hard.  Which some say is good for your back.  With support cushions I made it work okay.  I've slept on softer floors.. just kidding but after a few nights you either get used to in or need to find a softer bed.  

    The rooms are rather small, but efficient design and for the monthly price, very cheerful and clean.  The furniture isn't crappy stuff and again very clean.  And as other reviewers mention the mini fridge and kitchenette is great!

    The one elevator is v.e.r.y. s.l.o.w. but I met some friendly folks during my rides, not all bad.

    The rooftop deck is great.  They have guest laundry, but be warned the housekeepers use the same machines all day to do the bedding and towels so it can be difficult to get in during the day.  Talk to the front desk and they can get you a machine.

    All in All, a good place for a monthly stay if you aren't too bothered by bed hardness or some noise.

    For people unaware of the area.  It is very central.  However it is right across the street from what is called "Crack Park" for years by locals.  It has been cleaned up in recent years and is now a dog park with friendly pooches stopping by most hours of the day.  As a women I felt safe here, but my car didn't always.  

    The hotel has parking $10 a night or $12 on weekends, which is located in a garage across the way.  If you park on the street, don't leave things in your car.  Metering starts at 8AM.

    This place was ok, but not quite 3 stars. We arrived around 4pm on a Sunday and our room was not ready. We had made our reservations several months ago so this seemed strange to me. The front desk staff was ok but didn't seem to really care. Parking in the area was ok, but it is downtown. There was a lot down the street that we paid for at the hotel, I just didn't like having my new car that far away. We had booked on hotels.com and it was previously described as having a kitchen (which I assumed meant a stove) so we didn't mind paying $150. We had planned to cook all of our meals here to balance the price we had to pay to be close to the space needle and Pike Place. Unfortunately that didn't happen and we ate out. The neighborhood was ok, I didn't like walking around at night and there were some funny smells, but again, it's downtown. We saw some shady looking guys who come to find out lived there and rented by the month. The biggest downfall for me was the lack of AC. When we booked the hotel I didn't think anything of it because it's Seattle and cold. Well of course the week we were there it was horribly humid! The little fan they provided did not help and just moved the hot air around.

    short review: I would recommend, better than I expected for this price point.

    Details: close to a ton of attractions. Free use of bikes was great as our feet were already tired from walking all day. Parking was easy for us; reasonable fee to use the parking lot across the street. Great price. Clean room and bathroom. Bathroom looked to have new toilet and sink with fresh caulk everywhere. Nothings worse than seeing moldy caulk.
    Staff super friendly and nice. Business center with free Internet and printing for those boarding passes. Free soda, water, coffee and popcorn in room. Our room had a nice large desk, flat screen tv, mini fridge and microwave. Bed was comfy. Also cool rooftop deck to catch the great views and chill out.
    Cons: no ac but we didn't really need for the time we traveled; the do have ceiling and standing fan. I think they have tenants on the first floor who have pets not sure if it was from this building but I did hear a dog barking one morning 6:30am:(. Every time else was a nice quiet stay.

    Bottom line: If you are cheap or poor or cheap and poor you will be happy as they do not nickel and dime you for things like every other hotel. This has got to be the best under $100 a night place located around all the most popular things.

    When we went to Seattle, we were looking for something cheap, within walking distance to a lot of places and nice. Belltown Inn was just that.

    I loved loved loved that Belltown was so close to the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. We walked almost everywhere we needed to be and when we decided to go to the Zoo and breakfast outside of downtown, we rented a zip car (there were probably 5 cars within a half mile radius). Belltown also offered free bicycle rentals, which we took out one night, very nice accommodation. Also, the receptionist let us know that we were at the very end (or beginning) of the FREE BUS ZONE. I think it was only during certain hours, but we used this when we had to get to the train station back to the airport with our things. Thanks, Seattle!

    Upon reading reviews, I had seen that a lot of people thought this was a bad neighborhood and unsafe. I disagree. There were a lot of homeless people around at night, but I was with another person, so I didn't feel nervous or scared at all. There was one incident outside of our hotel for the three days we were there, the ambulance had come, but I'm not sure what the problem was.

    Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

    The Belltown Inn was a very positive independent hotel experience in Seattle. It is everything you could ask for from a moderately-priced hotel: clean, friendly, well-run. The location is great, with a lot of good restaurants, cafes and bars close by, and its walking distance from downtown and the Westlake Station. Facilities like the free bikes are great. It doesn't have some of the character you'd get from other independent hotels, but I didn't really feel the lack in my stay.

    The street is a little noisy - like other reviewers, I'd recommend a courtyard room if you can. One of the small things which was lacking was wifi in the rooms (you can get it downstairs in the "business center", though).

    We had a small problem with our sink drain which was fixed without us asking; always good when this kind of thing happens in a hotel.

    Fantastic location and great affordability is what drew me in, and then I was surprised and pleased to find that I love this place!  It was so clean! The staff are delightful and helpful.  The furnishings are more beautifully appointed than I expected.  Unlike many hotels, I found working at the desk to be very comfortable and lighting was good.  I loved having the little kitchenette--and they leave you complimentary goodies!  Bed was on the firm side, but good (though I like a bigger variety in pillows available as I like them quite soft).  I loved having a full length mirror (though wished for a magnifying make-up mirror esp as the bathroom lighting wasn't as bright as I needed).  I absolutely loved having a tub I could comfortably stretch out in for a read and soak. The soap was rich and fragrant and the towels wonderfully thick. It was nice looking out at the courtyard (which meant I had a nice quiet room) and great having the rooftop deck.  My only wishes other than for softer pillows would be for air con (it was hot!--but the ceiling and oscillating fans helped a lot).  All-in-all, a great experience at a great place at a great price.

    This place is fantastic. They have complimentary bottled water, popcorn, bikes, even reusable shopping bags to use when out and about. A welcome change from the nickel and dime game at other hotels!  The rooms are small but comfy and clean, and downstairs the lobby and courtyard are filled with pots of fresh flowers. Everyone has been friendly and accommodating. Love the area, including a restaurant that serves a bacon happy hour (Local 360). I highly recommend this adorable hotel.

    The night staff is very rude and unhelpful. The rooms are dirty, the air conditioning does not work and there is loud construction right outside the thin walls. Also, parking is an expensive nightmare. The woman working the front counter told me I was bound to get hit in the parking lot and to just get over it. Will never stay here again.

    I had a very positive experience staying at the Belltown Inn. The rooms are snug and clean, the staff friendly and approchable, and the location couldn't be better. I came up to Seattle for work and found that everything I needed was within walking distance.

    There are plenty of recreational opportunities within walking distance of the Belltown Inn. You can walk to Pike Place Market in ten minutes and to the Space Needle in fifteen. There's a variety of eclectic neighborhood coffee shops and restaurants that really cater to every palette.

    Parking can be a little tight, and the hotel has solved this issue by reserving a limited number of parking spots in a lot half a block up. Parking costs $15 a day plus tax, and is well worth the investment given the fact that you can effectively walk to many of your destinations.

    Bottom line: The Belltown Inn is a clean, affordable place to stay and centrally located in Seattle.

    This is a great place to stay for the price and location. It's not too expensive, and the location is great - walking distance to a lot of cool stuff, including Pike Place. Our room was comfortable and clean. It came with a microwave and mini fridge. The sodas and bottled water in the mini fridge are free, so that's nice. There is a business center with computers and printers in the lobby. It's no frills, but nothing wrong with it. The only thing I didn't like was the parking situation. It was expensive and in a garage that wasn't exactly close. It was across the street, but the entrance was on the other side of that building, so it took about 5-10 minutes to get to your actual car, from walking to the building, walking around the building, and then going down to whatever level your car is on. So if you forgot something in your car, or wanted to put something in your car, it wasn't the most convenient. It also required some remote to gain entry. Other than the parking situation, this hotel was great for a quick stay at a low price.

    Hello All,

    I Have lived here for 3 months during my summer internship. This was my first trip to Seattle and away from my city for a long time.  However, the staff and people at Belltown inn made my stay so comfortable that I cannot ask for more. I was little sacred of the homeless/crazy/druggies around but at Belltown INN, I never had to worry about anythings. Once I am in, I was all safe and taken care of .

    The staff is super friendly, their service is wonderful and they put up a smile whenever you walk in.  That just makes you feel safe, welcomed and wonderful.

    Moreover, they also very helpful and informative. They would guide you about the areas, food, travel and everythings. This just made my life much much easy.

    Make sure you land at this friendly place in Belltown.

    On a side NOTE.( I would not like to stay in a room facing the 3rd ave as there are lot of buses that keep on going and hence, if you are a sound sleep person it might be difficult to adjust with the Noise).

    Besides that, This is the most safe and very well welcomed place you can find in Belltown for temporary stay.

    Stayed here for a solo visit to Seattle for a Friday night through noon Sunday.  I chose it because it's only about a 10 minute walk from the Space Needle area, Pikes Market, Waterfront (all of Seattle's tourist attractions), and a few bars.  The  price was relatively cheap at $80/night.  

    Pretty much all I did was sleep here so I can't say much about the day life in the hotel, but at night the A/C would make some weird noises every now and then but nothing too loud.  On Saturday night/early Sunday morning, the fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate cuz someone burned some food in the microwave.  

    Besides that, the price was good, the staff was very friendly (college students it appeared), and it's located right in the heart of Seattle. I'd definitely stay here again if I go back to Seattle.

    First, I want to say that the reviews on here are VERY helpful and allowed me to make an informed decision, so if you're thinking of staying here, read them all - the good and the bad.  

    Second, be aware that Belltown is an urban area so if you're from a small town and are not comfortable with "big city" life, this area might be a bit of a shock to you and intimidating at first.   In other words, yes, there will be many "scary" looking people walking around and perhaps asking you for money, but they're harmless.  The street side can also be noisy with people, bars so maybe get a courtyard room if that's an issue.

    On the flip side, if you've ever been curious about how you would like living in an urban area close to the action, this is urban living with training wheels and depending on how long you plan to stay, an affordable way to find out if that is for you.

    So, this brings us to the next point (I'm not going to number every point, promise) - If you plan on having an extended stay, this place shines through because they offer both weekly AND monthly rates and in essence turn into a corporate suite/furnished apartment with many of the benefits of having your own apartment - Microwave, fridge, coffee maker, ironing board, hot plate and dishes (I didn't see this until a few days after  I was there, so check under the sink!) and other benefits.

    If you're completely familiar with the city already and know for sure you'll be staying in a particular area, then there may be cheaper options, but for those new to the city or relocating, this is a great middle ground and I ran into a few people who were in that situation.   Worst comes to worst and you want to move out, there is no lease so just switch down to the weekly rate(or is it up?).  

    Other things I enjoyed:
    *Free bikes!  

    *Helpful staff:  Shoutout to Patrick, Andrea, and Rachel (the other people were nice too but I'm bad with names).   They will tell you the easiest way to find a place whether it's a gym, store, or restaurant.

    *As mentioned before, this is right on the border of a "free ride" area so if you need to go closer to downtown just hop on a bus and chances are it will take you to where you need to go.  Once you get brave and learn about the routes, venture out to the paid parts.  

    *very clean and modern rooms with nice furniture and fixtures.

    Things that would have been nice but not deal breakers:

    *no free internet in the rooms, BUT they do have a free business center and do allow for ethernet connections on the lobby so bring your cable or ask for one.  The speed there is very fast and really, did you come there to see the city or to be online? :)  

    *No air conditioning.  At first, especially when you're from the Southern states, this seems like a horrific thing but the reality in the NW is that many homes don't have AC and don't really need it except for maybe July or August.  Certainly in October I didn't need it and even turned on the heater for a few minutes.  

    Pro Tip:
    Use the public transportation.  They do it right in Seattle.  Light Link Rail is only $2.75 from the airport and it's probably faster than taking a car!   It's only like 4 blocks away.  $2.75!!   If you're using a company account or have lots of stuff, maybe ask for a town car service or something...they'll give you a decent price on that too.

    Last, Whole Foods can get kind of pricey although they have some delicious salads and hot foods, but for everyday stuff like paper plates, juice, eggs, milk etc. Might want to check out Walgreens or RiteAid...all close by.

    In short (too late), this is going to be my home in Seattle when I'm in the area...unless Billy Gates wants to invite me to his guesthouse.

    Great location.  Not bad for the money I paid (they were on sale on hotels.com ).  
    They call their rooms 'with kitchnette' and this feels misleading, though.  Our room had nothing more than a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. No stoves or utensils.
    It can be quite noisy at night from traffic on the streets.. We were on the 5th floor and could still hear them. So this place may not be for lightsleepers.
    Also, the parking lot you get by paying $18/night is a little far away across the street and this could be a problem for some people.

    My wife surprised me with an overnight stay here. Hands down, the best hotel experience I've ever had. Great staff, clean, well-kept rooms; everything worked. The rooftop deck is amazing. Not much of a view of Elliot Bay, but a wonderful view of the Seattle skyline. You can walk to virtually anything: Pike Place Market, restaurants (Local 360 is one of my new favs, just two blocks away), coffee (of course), The Olympic Sculpture Park and the beach (Myrtle Edwards), and Moore Theater. If you're coming by car, be prepared to pay $15 a night for parking with in & out privileges (not that you'll need to use your car during your stay). Oh, and the hotel allows pets (with conditions), and there is a dog park across the street.

    I recently stayed at this hotel for a girls night out weekend in Seattle, this hotel is a great location (near all the good dance spots) and not too far of a walk to get to pikes place, or some other hot Seattle locations.
    The hotel was very clean, thought the standard room was a little small, they have a little kitchen in the room including a microwave and mini fridge, and a sink.
    The hotel is quiet, not too noisy for a busy down town location, and the staff was very very accommodating. The rates are pretty fair for a one night standard room, and there is an awesome roof top hang out where you can get an excellent view of the city.
    This would be a great and affordable place to stay for new years, or if you just want to go out and stay down town to avoid a DD this would be a great spot!

    Perfect location. Cute and right for the price. Although no A/C, there is a ceiling fan and a stand fan and the sliding glass door to the cute little balcony had a nice breeze. Free snacks in room and clean. The bikes are a nice touch. Friendly staff showed us a map of area and good spots. The rooftop deck is really nice. Cool view. Great for young people, had a non hotel but apartment vibe.

    Ok, I am giving the Belltown Inn 4 stars for a few reasons; the hotel has a great location, a nice rooftop deck and the room was very clean. The 5th star is for this: I left a pair of my favorite boots at the Inn and didn't realize it until one week later. At first I wasn't going to call because let's be real, how many times have you left something in a hotel room and called only to find out they "didn't find anything"? But I thought what the hell, why not right? I had no expectations. I called and THE BOOTS WERE STILL THERE. They even offered to ship them to me. Am I surprised? Unfortunately, YES! I've decided there are some decent, honest people in this world full of dishonest people. Reinstating my faith in humanity. Thanks Belltown Inn! You have some great employees.

    We went to Seattle from LA for sister's birthday. This hotel is great, if you are a tourist and you dont really care to stay in the room as we were out, and just in room to sleep at night.
    5 star for service: first of all they have free bikes for the hotel guests, that we used them everyday to speed up our tourist activities. people at the front desk are very helpful if you need to get suggestion on where to dine/party/visit/bus info.
    5 star for location: close to all attractions, pikes place, and even capital hill.
    the room was medium/small but very clean. make sure you close the window if you are on street side to be able to sleep. overall great stay. Thank you everyone at the front desk.
    their in room wifi is paid, but you can use their computers downstairs for free :)

    My girlfriend and I stayed at the Belltown from the 26th of June to the 1st of July. The place was booked, so we were a little worried after reading some reviews that it would be an unpleasant stay. We were wrong. It was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. When we were checking in, the service was polite and fun. After telling them I had just had a birthday, they recommended a few fun spots to go see and some yummy restaurants. They made the stay amazing. The rooms were clean and cozy. Not to small at all. We were on the side by a busy street, and as long as you weren't sleeping during the day with the window wide open, noise wasn't that big of an issue. By about 2am it's gets to be quiet as the busses quit running, and on the weekends it still wasn't bad. The rooftop was a beautiful view of skyscrapers and it was set up with tables and fresh flowers, and a few ashtrays, so it was perfect for smokers! No AC, just a big fan. Heat wasn't really an issue though, the building stayed pretty cool. Parking sucked, but that's the city I suppose. All in all, this hotel gets five stars because they rock at what they do. I will be staying here again when I come back.

    Awesome location. It's within walking distance from the Space Needle to Pikes Place Market and has a plethora of bars and restaurants in between. It's pretty affordable at $70 a night. The room was clean and comfortable. They have kitchenware and hotplates if you want to cook. Staff was helpful when asked about things to do around the area. The bad: The walls/floors are thin. I could hear the person above me stomp around at 3am. I believe all the rooms have windows but most have a view of a grey wall. Annoying pigeons were always hanging out and cooing at odd hours. There area always homeless/crackheads around.

    Overall, this motel was alright. The pigeons were a huge problem for me - I was on vacation! I deserve my sleep!

    I really like this hotel. It's very European in feel - lovely linens - narrow hallways but a comfortable room. Windows are openable which I love and there is a convenient kitchenette in each room. The location is great - walk to Space Needle, to Pike's Market and to Downtown. Also frequent busses passing by. The neighborhood is eclectic with lots of interesting restaurants and bars, neighborhood grocery stores, and within walking distance to The BIg Picture which was an experience in itself. My only complaint was that the bed was a little firm for my taste. I will definitely stay here again when we return to Seattle.

    Small rooms, but GREAT location, nice staff, cute rooftop patio, free rental bikes, and rarely ever heard the other guests. We stayed at the Belltown Inn for about 2 months after leaving a terrible apartment and not being able to find a short term lease. Don't get me wrong, this is a tight space and our window was facing a wall, so we couldn't even see outside- but the front desk was very friendly, fixed any issues we had in the room immediately (the sink had issues at times), and the location was prime. Bus/walk to everything, and for a GREAT price. We stayed on the fifth floor and didn't hear any traffic and only heard our neighbors a couple times.
    You get what you pay for, but this is not a crappy place to stay. Belltown can get a tad bit sketchy at night, so the reviews about the people hanging outside the hotel are true, but that's downtown for you.
    The rooftop and the free rental bikes made our stay enjoyable, despite some of the challenges of a smaller room and lack of window views.

    The rooms are clean and the location is great. Employees are helpful, friendly, and folks you'd like to talk with after work if you sat next to them at Starbucks (or at nice bar). It it is obsiously well managed.

    My flight arrived late from LA, and it was a relief that the late desk person, Rick, was so welcoming. I was so tired, but Rick got my stuff to the room and even checked a bit later to see if I needed anything more.

    I will be back!

    I read someone else's review about how maid service is only once a week, so not true.  Our room was cleaned, towels replaced, and everything was organized for us everyday.  Whenever we woke up later than usual, all we needed to do was put a service sign on our door and the room gets cleaned by the time we get back.

    This place is small, clean, and comfy.  It's a smoke-free building so no second-hand smoking :-).  They also have free bike rentals which is useful and environmentally friendly.  

    Only downside was the construction that was going on.  It gets real loud when the window's opened.

    Oh, having no ac is not bad at all.  We went to Seattle during the hottest week and it worked out fine cuz there's a ceiling fan and an extra giant fan.  AC is bad for the environment anyways..haha...

    Free water & coke in the fridge!  Free popcorn too!

    And if you have a dog, this place is pet-friendly and there's a dog park right across the street.

    This is a decent place to stay if you are between apartments like we were for a month or two.  They have maid service once a week to change out towels and put new sheets on and clean the place so that's nice.

    Each room has a mini fridge, microwave, hot plate, and dishes.  So you can make an easy dinner or microwave a frozen meal/ leftovers.

    They have bikes available to borrow and a place to store your bike.

    The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but we never had any issues, it just didn't feel safe to be out at night.

    They have a nice rooftop deck that used to have view of the sound now you can see the building they built right next door.  They allow smoking on the rooftop deck so good for those that smoke but no clean air for those who don't.

    They are cheaper the longer you stay ie. if you stay a week/ month you get a better deal than if you are just staying a couple of days.

    There are laundry machines on site but if you do your laundry in the afternoon on a week day it is busy since that's where the maids wash the sheets and towels also.

    This is simply a great place.  I was nervous about staying here after reading some of the reviews, but I am so very glad that I did.  My daughter and I were welcomed by the 3 staff members on Saturday, Ryan, Casey and Paul.  They were gracious and that set the tone for our whole stay.  While not all the staff were rock stars like these 3, we certainly didn't encounter any rudeness, and we stayed for 3 nights.  Our room was clean and comfortable and they went out of their way to accommodate our needs.  As for the noise, we faced the street so we simply turned the fan on at night.  Problem solved.  Thank you so much and I can't wait to go back!!

    Belltown Inn was a great place to stay if you want to be walking distance from all the main attractions!

    Pros: walking distance from Pike place, waterfront, seattle center, westlake center, Olympic sculpture park, children's museum, first original Starbucks (for the Starbucks lovers) and all the food!!! Has friendly staff, small, comfy rooms and free bikes to ride around for FREE!!! (And they said nothing in life is free) and for those clean freaks like myself, the housekeeping is great! They will clean your room everyday and make it look pretty for you again! Also, they give u free water (as in 1 bottle haha) and free popcorn and Starbucks coffee! *does the wave*

    Cons: well when I stayed, so much construction was going on but I was lucky enough not to have my room by the construction so I didn't hear a thing. The room does not come with AC but they do
    Provide you with a fan and a ceiling fan. Also, some restaurants around the area close earlier than usual especially coming from Los Angeles area that was very unusual for Me. The area around it has some homeless people but then again what downtown in this world doesn't but if that bothers you then well they are there. I also don't know why but weed seems to be legalized here or People don't like to obey the law? Lol! That bothered me a bit walking around the area but luckily the hotel is smoke free!!! That gets a 2 thumbs up in my book!

    Also, they do have an internet/business center since you have to pay for their internet but you can go Downstairs and get free internet if you would like.

    And the best thing about the inn, grocery next door that is open till midnight (since your room comes with a fridge and microwave, awesome right???) and a bus stop about 20 steps from it! How much more awesome can that get? (If you don't like walking, that is)

    But I highly recommend this place if you want a cheap, clean, convenient place to
    Stay in Seattle and aren't too picky about staying in those luxurious hotels. This is the spot for you! It's only a 10 minute walk away from westlake center which you can then take the light train to sea-tac airport! How cool is that!

    This hotel has the best location in Seattle. It's a walk to everything. We loved it because we came into town to enjoy the city for a weekend. We could walk to the dance clubs, and the restaurants very easily. Everyone at the front desk was very helpful. We could do this again. The parking and the decor was the only issue and we made it work.

    My first impression of this hotel was bad. Upon arriving the front desk girl was a complete b-itch. I understand that it was policy that I could not check in because the reservation via hotels.com was under my wife's name, but she was just cold hearted and rude as can be - i could go into more detail, but you get the point.

    Everything else was ok  to great.

    -The room was a bit small.
    -room was clean
    -shower was clean( no moldy caulk!)
    -Bed was comfy.
    - No AC which required leaving windows open and that was occasionally distracting.
    -bathroom a bit small. See first point
    -apparently a free water, coke, diet coke in mini fridge. I had coke and water and did not get charged
    - free bike rentals. Not the greatest bikes, but they worked and looked well maintained. I have them a decent look over and everything appeared gine( I do all my bike maintenance)

    -TIP- if you ride and find your self by lake union- or wanting to go there, westlake street is pretty flat and goes diagonally there

    -great location. 7 minutes walking from westlake station. Close to pier. Walking distance to everything really

    -and one *super* nice front desk lady. Wish I remembered her name. She's from Puerto Rico or something like that and loves water falls. She was a huge help with things to see and places to eat(ivars). Even helped with directions to mt rainer.

    - close to zip cars

    Great location. Lots of good places to eat or have a drink. Close to Seattle city Center and the waterfront.
    The room was clean and cute. The staff were very nice. No problem with hot water for us.
    Our room was on the ground floor by the alley. We have never experienced such a noisy stay in a hotel. We were awaken the first night by someone vomitting outside of our window, by a truck sweeper, cars etc going down the alley. The next night was pretty much the same --- lots of noises! I would suggest to get a room on the top floor facing the street.

    I have absolutely no complains about this inn.  It is very affordable and it it's in a great location.  You can walk to Pike's Place from the inn.  The room is small, but if you are only going to sleep and store you stuff in the room that shouldn't be a problem.  It is very clean and nothing in the room seemed to be old.  I checked for bed bugs and did not find any.  The bed is a little hard so if you have back problems you may take that in to account before you book.  The neighborhood is very clean, modern, and safe.  If you do end up staying here stop by Umi Saki House on Bell St. and 1st Ave. They have great sushi.

    Decent price, residential area, small rooftop area, about a 10-15 minute walk to the convention center. Rooms are a decent size with small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, little bar area with sink but strangely no phone in the room. Free wifi in the small lobby and business center, definitely don't pay for wifi in your room because the signal is weak and irregular, front desk staff not helpful. Our room was noisy (both outside street noise and above us), room was smoky, and we ended up checking out after 1 night.

    Having never been to Seattle, I made a great choice by staying at the Belltown Inn for 3 nights. Upon arrival, the staff was very friendly and check in was a breeze.

    The neighborhood, and what I saw of Seattle (downtown, Pikes Place...) is very clean and walkable. Multiple places to eat near the Inn. The Space Needle and Pacific Science Center are nearby, with a monorail that takes you downtown. The Inn is also close to Olympic Sculpture Park.

    The room was very clean and much bigger than my studio in SF - coffee, popcorn and daily cleaning were included. Internet is $5 for a 24 hour session. TV gets cable and there was a large desk.

    Don't miss the roof deck with an awesome, but down home view. I will be staying at Belltown Inn again!

    Don't stay here if you are from out of town and have a car or want a quite restful night of sleep...   There isn't parking available except for paid 2-4 hour on the street for $2.50 an hour or daily parking lots for $10-20. The guy at front desk was rather rude and not helpful. Now for the room, it does have a kitchenette which is always nice, but the bed was stiff and bedding thin and flimsy. No air conditioning and if you have the window open you hear the traffic, people, and the busses. If you have window closed you still can hear the noise. They're was a fan in our room but even that didn't block out sounds from outside. I will say it is located in great spot to go out and walk the city and see most of the sights. 2nd street has a lot of bars and restaurants. Also, if traveling with your dog there is a great dog park right across the street.

    Friendly 24/7 staff. Secure, locked doors. Clean rooms and bed.

    Not much more you can ask for, especially for the $70ish a night price and within 3 blocks of everywhere downtown Seattle.

    Especially nice is it's within 1 block (yes, a 10 second walk) to the trendy, hipster Belltown area with great food and nightlife.

    And they give free water and soda in the fridge, a lifesaver for those 4am wakeups when you just need something to hydrate.

    I recently moved to Seattle from Phoenix (3 days ago) we couldn't find an apartment from Phoenix so we decided to stay here for a month until we found a place, and got a scope of the areas we possibly wanted to live in.

    This place is close to everything! We sold our car and got a rental for the drive up, I AM super car dependent. Phoenix is large and hot so have a car is not a luxury it's a requirement. Here it is a luxury.

    I wanted from Belltown Inn to Westlake Shopping and it was about a ten minute walk... ten because I got lost three times. Granted I am a fast walker, and not too much out of shape.
    The bathroom here is HUGE. I hate that it doesn't have a tub only a shower... more so because I have a dog and I like the bath him often.
    The room is small. (I am by the courtyard)
    DON'T PAY FOR INTERNET HERE. IT SUCKS. BAD... wifi. If you use the ethernet cord you will be fine.
    Bikes are OK, I took a ride once... but I feel better walking.
    The bed is pretty comfy, it seems it's some sort of memory foam.
    Rooftop deck gives you an ok view of the Space Needle and skyline, BUT BE AWARE THAT PEOPLE WILL BE UP THERE SMOKING WEED. DOESN'T BOTHER ME, IM FULLY AWARE SEATTLE LEGALIZED WEED. But if your conservative or don't like weed... probably shouldn't go up there at night.

    NO A/C!!!!!! You can get by the provide a small fan and there is a ceiling fan... and we leave the window open... it doesn't bother me too much because the heat is tolerable.

    The only reason I choose this place is because they have a walk score of 94, and they are the cheapest extended stay in the downtown Seattle area. Everything else what 2,000+

    Oh and this is a PET friendly place... although they only have limited rooms for pets. About four or five. Thank god we called and they had a room for the time we were coming up.

    I loved this place. The price was great, and it couldn't have been in a better location. Hip neighborhood & a close walk to everything. Plenty of markets and restaurants just outside the door. I was worried about the AC, but the little balcony screen door & fans were more than efficient, and I'm very warm natured. I loved watching the dog park across the street, esp. since I missed my dog. Folks complained about the noise, but it wasn't more than I would expect from any place in the heart of a city. Neighborhood seemed very safe & public transportation was right outside the door. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful.

    If you can, get a national brand hotel, they have higher standards.

    Words to describe: dingy, sufficient shelter, rough blanket.  

    It was clean.  And you do get Bravo channel.  And you know, if you go downstairs, you can ask for user id and password, use the internet there, and when you take it upstairs, the internet still works.  

    I mean.. all in all, it was sufficient for a shelter.  But I'm over the poor student ways of traveling, I kinda want poofy pillows, and be swallowed in comfy over stuffed blanket.

    They do give two cans of soda, one bottled water, and popcorn.  There is a mini fridge and microwave (extra star).  

    It is within walking distance of Pike Place Market.  You would have to walk thru homeless ppl, but hey...

    Parking is like $15.  But you can park on the street till 8 am.  Kudos to my bro for always reading parking signs.

Oh and one ice machine located on the bottom floor! For such a cute little hotel, there is a few things they can do to show their customers they actually care. If they did I would totally stay again.

    Rooms are clean and amenities generous.  It's honestly a nice hotel, but my stay was frustrating because they do not offer air conditioning in the rooms.  This led to a 100+ degree room upon my check in at 9 PM.  Moreover, a box fan and window were supplied and moderately effective, but if you're the type (like me) who generally prefers to be able to sleep past 6am, you will be annoyed.  The street noise from the open window at 6am was akin to a clamoring waste disposal site; nothing but loud diesel trucks and air brakes and hydraulic sounds that in addition to the aforementioned window left open, let's all the merciless noise and light in that could wake a comatose person.  Super.  Freaking.  Frustrating.

    Ok so I guess I was expecting a bit more after reading several reviews but the price was decent and the location was pretty good as well. What we liked about this place was the location to lots of good dinning in Belltown, the proximity to downtown, and the rooftop balcony. What we didn't like was the heat and smell in the room, it was seriously hot and you can't open the window unless you don't mind all the street noise, and the odd odor that didn't go away was a little weird. Seattle PD could really help this place by cleaning up the nighttime riff raff that frequents the streets around this hotel. This would allow you to open the window letting the heat out and then you could get some sleep. Two words for anyone planning a stay here, ear plugs!

    Worst Hotel ever!!! I have been traveling for 30 years, there is no hotel that can be rated worse in my book, even cheep European ones performed much better. Room services sucked, they gave me used towels , not even sure if they are my used ones or some one else's......never refreshed the coffee and cream , kept the old wrappers in the basket, left cups and mugs dirty , and they never cleaned the tub. The best surprise was the room had no AC, a big window fan was our AC!!!! The street was so noise you couldn't dare open the window... The staff is unfriendly , I asked for cream and they asked me to come down to the reception and get it. the fridge was left uncleared from previous person in the room. All in all a very bad experience , pay more $$$ and stay somewhere else !

    Worst front desk staff I have EVER encountered in my life. 1 star is way more credit than they deserve.  Once rhey could be bothered to acknowledge my presence (as they were both busy doing something in the back). We had a reservation. When I told the young man in black behind the counter that we had reservations & my wife was double-parked (so I needed directions to their guest parking) he rolled his eyes & said he couldn't tell me until after we checked in. Even after my wife attempted to check in, the smarmy condescending female clerk-in-need-of-training would not give my wife directions to their supposed parking garage, located a block away on downtown Seattle's maze of one way streets.  We were so infuriated with their ineptness & lack of even making an attempt to give half a sh*t, we had to leave before my wife choked that stupid woman-child out, (with her stupid menial existence & attitude of a bouncer at downtown's most exclusive nightclub).  Of course,  when my wife attempted to get a refund the desk staff proceeded to play game with her (&the hotels.com rep trying to help us out.  DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, STAY HERE!

    Believe what you read here.   No a/c so you had to keep the windows open, could hear babies crying in other rooms, people talking, etc... Hard to sleep because of the noises and poor mattresses.   Staff was nice and helpful.  Area was also good and bad.  Convenient to everything, was a little scary late at night, shooting just outside on our last night, all the guests heard the gun shots, yes, there were several.  Room was very small but well done, except the mattress

    As others will attest, this is a great location if you're into sightseeing, window shopping and a variety of dining options.

    I was a little hesitant about my stay here - the reviews all seemed so mixed! It's a transitional area - trendy, accessible, with a few street folk milling about - nothing that made me feel nervous or unsafe though.

    The temperature in Seattle was perfect during my stay, so the open windows and fan provided just the right amount of airflow. I was on the side facing the courtyard so street noise wasn't a problem for me, though the walls were a little thin.

    The coffee, sodas, water and popcorn were a nice complimentary touch and I could see how the kitchenette would definitely be useful to many travelers.

    The staff was super nice and helpful - no complaints there. And again, the location can't be beat. My room was clean and I had a great stay - and since that's pretty much all I look for in a hotel, I was a happy camper.

    This place is GREAT.  It's very much my speed.  It's close to pretty much everything you can want to do.  There are plenty of bars, restaurants, cool venues, and other fun stuff to do.  Short walk to Seattle Center with the needle, short enough walk downtown.  The guys behind the desk are GREAT at giving recommendations for places to go and eat.  You can borrow their bikes for free, although I didn't take advantage.

    Also short walk to the Pike's Market, downtown shopping areas, and pretty much anything.

    It is noisy, so we knew that going in, and the stay was perfect.  They just opened a dog park across the street so once when a siren went by the dogs all went nuts.  That sort of stuff really doesn't bother us so it was perfect.

    The cost is great.  The staff is great.  Loved it, and recommend it to anyone who will listen!

    Good thing that I needed to cancel because they didn't even have me in the system.  When making the reservations originally, I was told I'd get an email confirmation.  Nothing came through.  So of course with no email confirmation number they can't find me and they almost canceled someone else who has the same last name I do.  I am waiting for a call back to make sure that I am in fact canceled and my credit card won't be charged.  I can imagine the hassle THAT will be just by the experience I am going through now to make a cancellation. Let's see how long it takes before I hear back.  I was told it would be handled in 5 minutes then in a kind of sort of way it was presented "It will be today".  

    Well they did call back and said I was canceled and they would send me an email.  Girl was unable to get my email right so I had to say it over several times.  Maybe, just maybe I'll receive it.  I asked for the confirmation number in case I don't get the email but all she would say is "I'm sending it right now, thank you have a nice day".  Um, can I please have the number, but no, got hung up on or disconnected.  I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on a possible disconnection.  But I don't think so.

    Well the email came through and no confirmation number given as they say the email serves as the cancellation notice/conf #. However I see that the date is wrong.  Will call back later when I am not so irritated.

    I did receive an email correcting the date and for bringing it to their attention

    Not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at, but the location and hotel employees made up for any shortcomings of the hotel itself. We got an Expedia deal and paid $75 for one night on an over night trip to Seattle (plus $15 for parking which seems like the standard).

    Upon arrival we were greeted by Ryan, a concierge staff member. He completely made us feel at home and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied and ready to venture out into a new city.

    It would have been easy to just check us in and send us on our way, but I can't stress enough how much Ryan went above the standard level of service to make our stay great.

    To hotel management, if you read these, you have a great employee in Ryan. Good employees are hard to come by, but you clearly have one in him. He truly made your decent hotel feel like a 5 star stay. Good job!

    I felt compelled to write a review of Belltown Inn because this hotel seems to get more than its fair share of negative reviews, and based on my recent experience staying there, those reviews are unwarranted.

    Our room was on the 5th floor.  It was small, but very clean and well maintained.  The room featured a queen sized bed, a desk with a leather upholstered chair and a telephone, and a small flat screen TV.  In addition, the room had a "kitchenette": a dorm sized refrigerator/freezer combo, a microwave, and a sink.  The kitchenette was a nice touch and saved us money on breakfast and lunch. We we bought groceries to make bagels for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch, opting to save our money for nice dinners out.  

    The location is excellent.  We were able to walk to downtown, Pioneer Square, Chinatown/International District, Queen Anne, Pike's Place Market, and the waterfront.  The Seattle Center (EMP museum, Space Needle, Chihuly Gardens and Glass) is within walking distance as well

    Some people have complained about the neighborhood.  Yes, there are some street people who hang out in this area at night, but they are mostly harmless and respectful.  I grew up in San Francisco and the street people who hang out on Market Street at night (near some very expensive hotels!) are more aggressive and arguably more dangerous.  

    Some people reviewing Belltown Inn have also complained about noise.  We stayed Saturday through Wednesday.  Saturday night WAS noisy until about 2:30-3:00 A.M., but this is because there are several bars located just around the corner from the hotel.  This was not the hotel's fault, though, and is more an issue of researching the surrounding area than anything else.  We were up late on Saturday so it did not bother us.  Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights were quiet.

    I don't recommend this place. It was about 80 in Seattle yesterday . Not that hot, but when a hotel has no air conditioning and poor ventilation it can be terrible. I got horrible sleep because it was so hot and stuffy. It was not possible to open a window because it's loud outside with traffic and people "hanging out" right outside the window. The tv was laughably small. Parking is a block away and $18 extra. In short, there are no nice touches. And the most important thing about a hotel us that it gives you the ability to get a goodnights sleep. The belltown inn failed in this respect.

    Won't be back.

    This place is a step up from a hostel, in that you get your own private bathroom. But the room is tiny and cramped. The TV is a dinky computer monitor-sized thing. The bed is not comfortable (though not really uncomfortable either).

    Having said that, it's centrally located within easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, and attractions. So if you plan to be exploring and just need a place to sleep and wash up, this place will suit your needs. It's no frills though.

    I stayed in a standard queen bed room with a kitchenette that was great value for the cost. The room was cozy, yet clean and comfortable. It was a bit stuffy in the room but we just had to crack window and keep the ceiling fan on. They do have wi-fi but service is spotty. Also, I didn't realize that the water and soda in the fridge and the popcorn were free.

    Service at the front desk was casual but friendly. When I checked in later in the evening, there were no spaces left in their lot but we were able to find street parking for free (starting 8pm on Saturday night and all day Sunday).  Otherwise, our other option was to park at one of the paid lots in the area. We also were able to have the front desk hold our luggage after checkout, free of charge.

    The best thing about the Belltown Inn is that it is within walking distance of a lot of the major tourist attractions in Seattle which is very convenient.

    This hotel is close to everything and the rooms are nice sized and clean. I would have liked an ac but it didn't get too hot here. Some other reviews were complaining about the hot water and I had the same reaction until I realized that you have to keep turning the shower knob all the way around past 90 degrees to turn the hot water on.

    This was the only hotel I've ever been in that the room came with free sodas and snacks. The rooftop deck is really nice but we couldn't see the fireworks from it so that was a let down.

    You get what you pay for.
    I am writing this review as a guest in town for business.  The location was good and the room had a refrigerator and it was reasonably priced, all pluses when travelling for work.  I'll break it down:

    Pros:
    Location is excellent.  Grocery store, restaurants, breakfast cafes all within 5 minutes of walking.  
    Reasonably priced ($119/night on a weekend)

    Cons:
    No parking - either park on street or paid lot across which had whacky hours and was very inconvenient in having to either reload the permit or move my car entirely
    No A/C - room was very hot and muggy.  They provide 2 fans (1 ceiling, 1 standing) but they hardly helped
    Loud - room was facing 3rd street, it was very loud and noisy throughout the night
    Old - the place is old, you can hear the ppl next to you getting frisky
    No breakfast provided

    If I came here as a tourist or traveller, I think I would've given it 4 stars since I probably wouldn't have to worry about a car, and I'd hardly be in the room.  But no bueno for business travellers.  They also charge for wifi but provided it for free since they didn't provide parking.

    In the mornings there is no hot water. None. This was experienced by all 5 others in our group, regardless of what floor they were on.  If you're not out of the shower by 6 30 you won't be getting back in until nine. Even more irritating, the staff claims to know nothing about the problem. Apparently they dont read their own Yelp reviews.

    Aside from that and no air conditioning, it's fine Everything was clean and the place is well located with plenty to walk to.  Other than lying about the hot water problem the staff was friendly enough...

    It was ok. A group of us annually attend a conference at Bell Harbor and have stayed at other hotels previously. Due to availability, many of us stayed at the Belltown Inn.

    Two stars and a "Meh. I've experienced better" about sums it up because most everything was ok about the Belltown Inn. The staff was ok (nice enough, but didn't seem to care that much), the rooms ok (small, a little smelly, but overall clean), good location near restaurant, bars, shopping and markets.

    Not good noise insulation (got woken up early by a truck's back up indicator) or black-out shades.

    However, just about all of the 6-8 people I knew at the inn had issues with the hot water (and staff basically lied saying they hadn't heard it was a problem from other people when I talked with at least 5 guests that complained)...so, not horrible, but I won't be recommending it.

    Oh, and you have to pay extra for WiFi (it did work well) which is a bit behind the times I think.

    The location of the hotel is very great. Walking distance to the Space Needle and Chihuly gallery, Olympic sculpture park, Shiro's sushi, Pike place market, and plenty of other restaurants and places.

    The cost is great.  The bedding and bathrooms are clean. Water is hot enough and  sustained (doesn't turn hot then cold then hot). Provides a hair-dryer, which is good.

    However, do note that the WiFi is not free.

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for three days, two nights back in December. We checked in early without a problem and were given a room facing the courtyard (which we requested, due to street facing rooms are often noisier).The room was clean and nice with a mini fridge and microwave.

    The only problem my boyfriend and I had was getting our damage deposit back from the hotel. They claimed the credit card company would return the amount, but we had to make several calls to the hotel and the credit card company to receive the money back.

    Good hotel, super close to everything! We literally walked everywhere from Pike Place to Chinatown, to the Space Needle.

    This place gets 2 stars solely for it's location and one star for the free upgrade.

    My friend and i booked the room off of hotel.com and originally it was 1 queen size bed with free wifi. we thought it's fine since we were only staying in Seattle for 2 nights and 1 day.

    we got to the hotel at 10:30PM to check in. the person who checked us in was really nice and confirmed the room we booked but did not inform us about the free wifi even though the booking said there's free wifi. We asked and he said 'oh yes yes" and gave us an upgrade to 2 beds! and we asked if it comes with free wifi and he said 'no, that would be an extra $5' WHAT?!?! o_O but he decided to give us the free wifi anyways. we asked about parking or if there's a parking lot for hotel guests. The guy told us "no, street parking only." and we had to be out and move our car by 8AM the next day. Which was not true... here's a tip: there's a parking lot for hotel guests only for $15 a day just diagonal from the hotel. Ask the front desk about all day parking and they will give you a hotel parking placard. I don't know why the first guy didn't tell us this...

    we went up to the elevator to our room only did we find that the door had a "do not disturb" sign. we were so confused and my friend took the sign off and used the key to open the door. OKAY -- we were super confused this time when we opened the door and felt heat coming out from the room and saw trash everywhere! next thing we knew was someone half asleep woke up and we heard a 'WHAATT?!' we were like  WTH?!?! and went back to the front desk.

    We told the guy who checked us in that there was a mistake in their system since there was someone still sleeping in the room...the guy was panicking and found us a vacant room. this time when we went to our room it was really empty. that was some weird experience...

    We were on the 2nd floor so we can pretty much see what's happening out on the streets. The hotel comes with a fridge with complimentary coke (1), diet coke (1), water bottle (1), popcorn (1) and coffee mix. TV is provided. There's no air vent in the bathroom so after you take a hot shower you have to keep the bathroom door open. Blow dryer is provided which is a plus. There's no toilet seat cover.

    There's construction working outside right next to the hotel. i'm not sure why but there was a lot of constructions going on all through out the city when we were there. Construction noise was what i heard right when i woke up. -_- Oh and the walls are pretty thin too. I can hear people from the floor above me stomping around...

    Oh yeah, "free wifi" never worked for us. The front desk gave us a piece of paper with the 'free wifi' login info -- info was invalid. we didn't bother to ask since we didn't want to go through the trouble of it. especially what had happened the first time with the non-vacant room...

    if you want to look for a place downtown for an okay price that is near pike's place then this is the spot to go. It is walking distance to pike's place -- less than 10 minutes.

    This place is more than worth the value in the off season.  Staff is always friendly if you are,  but the mysterious "guy who does things not agreeable" who works there is evident, yet never present.  An oddity for certain.  

    All in all, a great place. Get out of the hotel and experience everything close by.

    This was our second stay here, both stays were three days long. The location is really awesome. You can walk to just about anything, even the Pike Place Market! Though there are a few sketchy areas with beggars and drug addicts around the inn, we were able to walk past them at night without a problem. There's also a small convenience store across the street should you need beer for the mini fridge. Service is good and they have free bike rentals! Roof top deck is pretty awesome too. One thing I'd complain about is the slowwwww elevator.

    Hotel was clean, staff was VERY helpful and friendly but our room was EXTREMELY HOT!!!! We could barely sleep @  night and had the crappy plug in circular fan blowing full blast on us. I would never stay here again based on this. ALso, around afternoon time, there were a group of older crackhead type ladies hanging out under out window across from the dog park yelling and screaming at ppl walking by. There was also some type of fight/stabbing that occurred on the other side of the dog park because the police and ambulance were called and we heard ppl  yelling.
    Obviously we didn't expect this place to be a Hilton but I would have liked to have slept better and had a little more ventilation. Nice thing was, they did have a small fridge and microwave.

    We had a pet room, first floor, window facing the courtyard. So we did not have AC but we didn't need it and instead of street noise with our windows open, we had a fountain. Nice. Also, drinks and snacks were waiting for us.

    Location is close to everything. There's a breakfast / coffee place next door, a dog park across the street and plenty of restaurants everywhere to eat indoors and outdoors. Pike Place is just a few blocks away.

    Sure, it's a bit of a rough neighborhood, but the junkies were all very friendly.

    Here's what really stood out to me:

    - A pet-friendly room was on the first floor. Common sense, but this NEVER happens so we're super grateful. Also, dog park!

    - Walking distance (5-10 mins) to the best parts of Seattle, Pike Place, downtown, food, etc. This was the best part.

    - Super clean laundry facilities that take credit cards!

    - $20/night for a parking lot pass across the street (not an annoying parking garage).

    - Free WiFi. It wasn't great but it was free.

    - SO MUCH GOOD FOOD ALL AROUND YOU.

    I would recommend this very affordable and modern hotel to anyone (except maybe in the summer because of the A/C thing).

    No central air? Wow, that was an odd choice....? This would easily be a 4 star hotel but showing up to a room at 90 degrees was not what I expected. Yes the window opens but that wasn't nearly enough to be able to sleep. The fan they provided helped but come on! The dog park across the street provided for no need for an alarm on a Saturday morning at 7am because I had to have my window open to keep alive. Also not what I was expecting after rolling in only hours prior from a night out. I thought the location was pretty perfect for me. The staff was excellent. You can "rent" a parking permit to leave a car across the street in the lot with in and out privileges for $13. That in itself was a really great deal. Small but clean and sharp rooms. I'd love to come back and stay anytime outside of summer.

    I originally found this hotel through hotels.com and I decided to book because of the good ratings, comments, and walkability...and I would like to echo my satisfaction with Belltown Inn.  Expecting to walk everywhere, I found this place a short walk to everything in town.  I always take the rail in to Westlake station and this hotel is about a 10 min flat walk away.   I arrived a few hours early and the staff was very accommodating by checking my luggage while I wandered around town until check in time.  I returned around 3pm and they checked me in early with no problems which I really appreciated.  The stayed in a queen bedroom and the room was perfect for two people.  There was a  microwave, fridge, wet bar area, large desk.  The bed was the only thing that left something to be desired as it seems to feel old and worn.  The restrooms were a nice size and the amenities were all average with the towels were above average weight and the bath towels were large (maybe bath sheets).  Room was clean and everything was in good repair hotel wide.

    We stayed on the 3rd floor and found through our stay the elevator was a little slow and just ended up taking the stairs (which is a great deliberate move if you enjoy the food scene here).  They have free bikes for use but we did not take advantage of this.  

    I'd highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a clean, safe place and aren't looking for all of high end amenities, a pool, or a gym.  

    Lastly, I would like to say I am grateful I was able to store my luggage after check out since my plane didn't depart until 5pm.  I was able to roam again without having to carry all of my luggage around.  

    Thank you Belltown Inn for a great experience!

    We booked this hotel sorta accidently online *while* speaking with someone at the hotel. While speaking to the man (Rick?) he assured us that he would honor a lesser price we saw elsewhere online despite booking it online at a higher price. When we arrived at the hotel I stayed in the car while my husband went in. After a few minutes I went in, only to find my husband arguing with Cory at the desk because the man the night before failed to put anything in the computer! So now they wanted to charge us much more than we agreed. Cory was not pleasant and didn't seem to believe us. She finally agreed with a huff and we went to our room. I also had requested a quieter room the night before....fat chance. This may have been the loudest room in the loudest city ever. The location, though near a lot, seems to be homeless central. Actually from what I can tell, the entire city of Seattle is homeless central.
    The rooms are tiny, and the rooms and hotel itself is run down, though quite clean with the exception of the hallways outside the rooms always looking unvacuumed. The internet is spotty at best, except in the lobby and getting charged for it is not a good deal in this day and age of free wifi.
    We visited their rooftop bar a couple times and always found it dark and deserted. The laundry facilities are a nice, and appreciated addition.
    Pros:
    Location
    Good lights in the bathroom
    Ginormous bath towels
    Room fridge
    Laundry room
    Almost everyone at the front desk
    Cons:
    The horribly uncomfortable bed (like a rock covered in more rocks)
    No A/C (we did know that when we booked)
    Slowest elevator known to mankind

    Overall I'd say the place is ok, though for the price it's not worth it. And the scuffle with Cory upon arrival because of the night guy's giant mistake the night before just kinda ruined it all for me.

    This place would have gotten more stars if it didn't reek of tobacco smoke and pushy hotel attendants. They kept pushing my husband and I to do a one month extended stay. They didn't care to be courteous and they didn't try to help us with all of our luggage... Seriously they expected us to stay!

    My husband and I stayed here for one night to attend the NFC Championship.

    Pro's: The room was very clean! I watch a lot of Hotel Impossible so I always check the things Anthony checks and everything was spic and span. Also appreciated the crisp white linens. The bathroom was nicely done, and we did feel $94 was a good price for the room being so close to downtown.

    Con's: When we walked in, our immediate thoughts were:
    1) This room is tiny!
    2) Its REALLY hot in here
    3) It smells like disinfectant (maybe that's good though, still it was strong)
    Other than that, the bed is not the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in, but no real biggie. We had to use the fan provided in the room because it was so hot, but again, no biggie. There was a lot of noise outside our window all night long, it kept us awake because there was a lot of banging and yelling... but maybe that's pretty usual.  The only other thing I can think of was the elevator is extremely slow and twice it never even came after pressing the button so we took the stairs.

    All in all, I was just glad to book a room for under a hundred so close to downtown and the space needle that was clean and pretty safe. I'm not sure we'd stay here again but it did the job.

    Pricy for this type of accommodation, but what do you expect, it's in downtown area.  If you are looking for a good location and decently clean room, then this is it.   The front desk though....doesn't give off an energetic and welcoming attitude.  They are not bad, they are polite and will help you if you ask, but give off a vibe that they are just doing their job and they rather you not bother them if you don't have to.   Every time I walk into or out of the lobby, none of them greeted me.  I was always the one initiating a smile and greeting.   And when I wanted advice on where to go and her recommendations on restaurants to eat, the lady was on her computer busy looking at...facebook?   She turned around and gave a quick answer that suggested walking certain blocks to a direction to find more food and then immediately turned back to her computer screen.  

    It wouldn't hurt if they try to be more friendly and energetic, it would have given me a more positive impression of this hotel.  This is not a bad hotel, but not a great hotel either.

    Belltown Inn was a mixed bag for me. The staff was certainly friendly, giving helpful tips. They also offer in-and-out parking a block away for a decent rate, in case you just need to store your car somewhere for your visit.

    The room itself was fine. I was on the top floor, so it was a bit warmer. Luckily they provide ceiling and regular fans. Noise was an issue on Friday/Saturday night, however. The windows don't afford much help, and I could definitely hear alarms from other rooms in the morning. The one elevator is slow as hell, also.

    Finally, what place charges for WiFi these days? It's not very expensive, but you might as well wrap it into the price.

    I think it's closer to 3.5 stars, but I'm rounding down for overall experience.

    The good:
    Great location located towards the top of Belltown.  Can easily walk downtown or walk about 1/2 mile up to Queen Anne.

    The staff is super helpful and loans out bikes and umbrellas as well as information for tourists.

    The rooms and hotel is small and boutique style.  Not a lot of frills but well thought out and tidy.  Rooms do have a mini fridge and microwave.  

    Also tends to have great pricing for the location.

    The bad:
    If you happen to be there on a warm day during the summer there is NO AC.  They do provide fans that work fairly well....but then you need your window open and the dog park across the street guarantees you won't be sleeping past 7am.  Also you run the risk of being woken up during the night from noisy revelers in the street.  All and all.....unless you're deaf....sleep is a little tough.

    Recommend only staying here during cooler times.  You don't want to be forced to keep your window open.

    My friend and I enjoyed our two-night stay here. She found it through TripAdvisor and overall I'd have to say it has pretty good value, but there are some a couple of strong caveats:

    1. We had a room facing the street and the dog park, and it was indeed VERY noisy; if you're sensitive to noise you should definitely try to request rooms facing the inner courtyard, but since the building is on a busy corner not sure how much quieter those will be.

    2. No AC. It wasn't that big of an issue for my friend and me even though it was quite a warm weekend in Seattle. The fan and open window were adequate in keeping us at a comfortable temperature, but the open window exacerbated caveat #1.

    That said, it was a spacious, clean and comfortable room, and there was free Wi-Fi, as well as a free bottle of water and soda in the fridge--pretty unheard of! The beds were a little saggy but we didn't suffer any ill effects. Located in an up-and-coming area, it's close to a lot of cool stuff and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooftop patio wasn't too bad either, even though the furnishings and ambience were more utilitarian than posh. Pretty good for the budget-conscious--I wouldn't mind staying here again!

    Nothing but positive things to say about this hotel!

    Our room was clean with a fun view of an adjacent park.  The majority of the staff were really lively and helpful. Free Umbrellas and bikes to explore with.

    The best part for me was that the location cannot be beat!  Conveniently located near tourist and local hotspots, if you're looking for a great place to lay your head in a cool neighborhood, where you can literally walk anywhere and everywhere, this is it.

    Best thing 2.0 about it was the cost!  I was able to book at just under $100 a night.  Upon searching further, they even had units that are as low as $79.  

    Fun fact: a block away from an amazing restaurant, Bell + Whete, which I'll write a review about shortly...

    I had high hopes for belltown inn based off the pictures they have online but I was disappointed.

    I went to the belltown inn after a busy day of exploring Seattle, I drive to the hotel unable to find any parking. I eventually have to pull my car in the back alley of hotel just to get
    Off the street and make a phone call of where to park. I'm told to pull my cat in front of the hotel and the staff will find parking....... The only problem with that is that there is no "front of the hotel" as the hotel sits directly on the sidewalk of a Main Street.

    I find parking that I have to pay for a block away, go inside and check in, I'm also offered the option of paying the hotel $20 a day for them to park my car on their "private lot" .......... This seemed very shady to me so I said no.

    They also screwed up my 2 queen bed reservation and gave my a single queen bed ........... At this point I was so fed up that I just accepted it.

    The room was very clean, and so was the bathroom. However the room has no heater and the only way to cool yourself is a mini desk fan.  

    One of the workers in the hotel also suggested a nearby restaurant called the "local 306" PLEASE DO NOT EAT THERE, I've written a review on that dump as well.

    Overall was tolerable for a night, but lacked on parking, customer service, and basic accommodations.

    I selected this hotel due to good reviews, location, and low price on orbitz.  The staff was friendly and eager to offer suggestions ( good ones).  We stayed one night and got a parking pass for $20 that covered our whole stay.  

    We requested a quiet room and they gave us one facing the courtyard.  The room was clean and bed was comfy.  It included a few drinks in the fridge.  The room was more than adequate with a clean bathroom that looked renovated and a small lcd.  The room was quiet.  It's nothing fancy but looks well maintained.  

    I would definitely stay here again.  It's in a great area with tons of bars and restaurants and the space needle and pike place areas are a short walk away.  Hotel management and staff seem to take pride in their work.

    Such an unfortunate experience. Save yourself and skip this place.

    From the moment we checked in, we were met with negative attitudes. From not letting us finish our sentences, to disrespectful undertones...this place has it all. The shorter lady up front is a nightmare. The lady who worked the night shift was just as bad. It was refreshing this morning to meet Cesar, as he seems to understand hospitality. Thank you Cesar, and good luck with your employees...might be better to just fire them all and start all over.

    I will say, the gentlemen with a beard and glasses at the desk was very nice. The blonde though, fit right in with the horrendous ladies working yesterday. I politely thanked the guy at the front desk, for allowing us to check out at 1 ( our flight was moved from 6am to 6pm) and she comes out of no where and says "may as well stay until 3". But she couldn't even look us in the eye to insult us. So note to that lady, look me in the eyes of you want to throw out a crappy insult like that.

    Overall this place is a joke, and I've spent too much time even writing this.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    Booked this hotel for me and my lady on our first vacation to Seattle. This hotel is awesome. Its clean, friendly staff, free bikes, free wifi, microwave and they have a fridge to store your booz. If your a dog lover there's a pretty cool dog park across the street. Everything from this hotel is walking distance. Pike street is like 5 minutes away and so is Seattle Center and Space Needle. There are so many places to eat and drink around here. "List" and "Umi Sake Bar" is a must and its a block away. Here's a pro tip...HAPPY HOUR.  

    Anyways if you aren't the type looking for a high end 5 star gym and pool and snooty hotel then this place is for you. Oh and there's awesome deals online for this hotel so i highly recommend this place.

    Check out the rooftop at night if your trying to get romantic...hehe

    I agree with many of the 5 and 4 star reviews- Belltown is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a decent hotel at a decent price!

    The location is just phenomenal- its about a 10 minute walk to the central downtown area and a 5 minute walk to the space needle. Doggy lovers will enjoy the "quirky" dog park right across the street from the inn as well. Plenty of great restaurants nearby for a high quality nosh as well (including Breakfast Bitch, Pho, and Dahlia).

    My little room was basic, nothing out of the ordinary. But to be honest, I spent most of my time exploring the area and attending a convention downtown. My room was clean and cozy- with a decent bed, average bathroom, microwave and mini fridge. I even noticed a huge portable fan in the corner of the room, but I didn't get the chance to try it out.

    I enjoyed that there were bikes available to borrow, not to mention a pretty awesome view from the roof! I also appreciated having the mini 'business center" available- hooray for free printing!

    Oh my goodness, the staff were just fantastic! Every time I left or entered the Inn I noticed either the maintenance or housekeeping staff working hard. The office folks were fairly friendly too (especially Ryan, that guy is pretty hilarious).

    Super minor nit picks:

    Parking will be an issue- but that's what happens when you're staying downtown. I paid the $20 a day for parking which is very steep. There are other parking garages sort of near by for a fairly similar price. There was nothing sketchy about the parking lot whatsoever- I even stopped by and checked on my car a couple times and felt perfectly comfortable walking alone.

    Wifi was spotty- again I'm being totally nitpicky here. I struggled to get a decent connection for the four days I stayed in my room. At certain parts of my room I could maybe get a connection, but this would last for only a couple minutes. Luckily, I know how to survive without internet for a few hours :)

    It will be a little noisy regardless of what floor you are staying on! I was on the top floor where the noise at night wasn't TOO awful even on St Patrick's Day. But you will hear street noise from your room, that is a given. If you are a light sleeper- be warned- you may need ear plugs!

    Considering these super minor "kinks," Belltown still fits the bill for sure, I'll be back!

    Great location between Seattle Center and downtown. Affordable compared to other downtown prices. Rooms Includes fridge and microwave.

    Very loud in the rooms. Panhandling is pervasive in the neighborhood so you need to be prepared for that. No real parking. You need to shuffle your car from lot to street to lot. Fortunately, there is a lot of street parking available at most times. Basically, 20 per night with the inconvenience. Staff can handle it for you if they have room for you (for me there was not).

    Great location. Walked to the Pike Market & Space Needle in the same day! Clean convenient and inexpensive. Nice rooftop view, free bike rental but no breakfast.

    Very easy/cheap to Uber or cab to any location. Lots of close places to get food.

    Unfortunately I really did end up "Sleepless in Seattle" because our room faced the back alley and it was so noisy. That's why I gave it 3 stars. I even wore earplugs & was awakened by sirens, dump trucks, people talking/yelling/peeing in the ally & echoing traffic. I stayed during the week also so I'm sure weekends are noisier. And room walls are thin. You can hear upstairs people & next door.

    So ask for a room away from the alley & bring some earplugs!

    I'll preface my review by saying I'm a princess when it comes to hotel rooms and cleanliness, so I was a bit nervous about staying here. But it was great! The staff was really nice, and the room was just perfect for what we needed. It was clean and we had a fairly comfortable stay. The first night, the room definitely got a bit stuffy, but afterwards we had the fan on and it was just perfect. The hotel is also very conveniently located to everything. We walked everywhere! It's also such a great price. Our room faced the inner courtyard.

    Would I come back? Yes!
