I cannot say enough positive things about our stay at this hotel.  The location is perfect and you cannot beat the price.  Our room was clean, comfortable and had a beautiful view of the Space Needle.  It had all of the amenities I could have needed including a microwave, refrigerator, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, safe for your valuables and a great flat screen t.v.  I also loved that I didn't need to bring shampoo, conditioner, lotion, or body wash.  The hotel is eco-friendly and has dispensers for all of these.  (No need to lug it all in your suitcase.)  It is close to so many attractions, (Experience Music Project, Pacific Science Center, The Children's Museum and of course the Space Needle itself), as it is conveniently located in Seattle Center.  My family and I also discovered that Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium are only about a mile away and it's not difficult to walk there.  The staff was amazing.  Everyday we came back from our Seattle adventures they were always there to greet us with a smile and help if we had any questions or concerns.  Even my four year old couldn't wait to go back and "relax at the hotel!"  As if all of these things weren't enough to make me want to come back and stay, there is one thing that happened following our stay that confirmed what an incredible hotel this is.  My son left behind his beloved monkey he'd had since he was a baby as well as a stuffed seal that he got at the aquarium.  Ian Robert McClendon, the Assistant General Manager and his staff went out of their way to find them.  (And believe me it was not easy as they were wrapped up and hidden amongst bedsheets that had already been sent to be laundered.)  I highly recommend a stay at The Best Western Executive Inn and my family and I will definitely return.

yes, noise - there is a huge construction site next door.

however, the pluses:

"quick" brand shuttle to vancouver stops here
public restrooms are clean, accessible (no room key needed) and have a powerful flush that would make al bundy proud
business center (business corner - small - but effective) has free internet and free printing (bring your own paper if you need to do a lot of printing)
wifi was under repair while i was there,
but it is complimentary
even the grand hyatt beijing charges for wifi - so i was tickled at this included amenity
right next to the space needle (in case you need to describe where you are located to locals or friends)
and short walk to the monorail.

This hotel is in a great location and I had no real problem.  The rooms were clean but a little small.  The elevators were painfully slow as well.  Parking was reasonable and not hard to get a spot in the garage.  Convenient to I-5 or 99.  Didn't try the restaurant but it seemed like a decent deal for breakfast.  I will probably stay here again next time I'm in Seattle.

I would highly, highly, highly recommend this hotel.

1. LOCATION! They are 1 to 2 blocks from the Space Needle. If you ask, you can have a room actually facing it. (Which we did. Amazing view)

You can walk to the Space Needle & the monorail in a matter of 2 minutes. We walked to Jazz Alley in about 5 minutes.

2. Incredible bargain. We got our room for $99 a night.

3. Very Clean and very comfy.

4. Helpful and friendly staff.  (Our neighbor who had apparently checked out early set his alarm clock for 3 am...waking us up well before we needed to. We called the front desk, and within 2 minutes, the alarm had stopped.)

5. Eco-friendly! They have recycle bins in EVERY room, they eliminate waste of all the little plastic bottles by installing dispensers for hand soap, lotion over the sink. And dispensers for bath gel, shampoo and conditioner in the bathtub. Additionally, the products used are VEGAN, do NOT test on animals and are environmentally friendly.

I dont think i will be staying at this hotel anymore, I came here around the same time last year and had a blast with my friends so I decided to come with my fiance just for a little weekend getaway and first off when I got here they made me pay to park my car in their parking lot.... they didn't make me pay during my last visit, its $15 a night now apparently and we had 1 request which was to face the space needle... instead we got put onto the other side of the hotel so we have a lovely view of a travelodge... and to top all that off we went downstairs in the morning for our "free" continental breakfast... yea try discounted we were charged so I ended up actually paying about $50 more than i planned.... don't stay here go somewhere else

Great hospitality, friendly and helpful staff, good location.

Walk just a few blocks to the Monorail, Seattle Center, Experience Music Project, Space Needle, and other attractions; also conveniently close to downtown (about 1mile). Cozy fireplace and free refreshments in the lobby alcove. Buffet breakfast is quick and reasonably priced.  Some rooms have views of the Space Needle, other rooms have distant views of the snowy Cascade mountains.

Parking garage may be included in room rate, sometimes, at discretion of the desk clerk, it seems.  Stayed here several times with my kids, we'll be back!

The rooms are really nice, though you pay for it. For some reason I couldn't get used to the fact that I was paying $100+ for a Best Western.

But, $15 for parking? I guess all the hotels in the area charge for parking, but give me a fucking break.

Three stars for the staff, location, cleanliness of the room and the view of the Space Needle.

Zero stars for the NOISE!

This hotel has walls so paper-thin, that I thought the people walking down the hall had walked into my room.  Ditto the people in the next room watching t.v. and talking at 7 in the morning on a Sunday.  It sounded like they were sitting on the foot of our bed yapping.  I thought I had accidentally rolled over on the remote control and turned on our t.v.

Outside of our window, there was some very popular nightclub that clearly allowed 18 and over, judging by the relative youth of the people waiting in line.  We were awakened at 2:00 a.m. by the sound of drunken arguing (imagine loud boys calling each other "Bitch." As in "You gonna do something about it, BITCH?") accompanied by the sound of police sirens.  This repeated on Saturday night as well.

When we checked in, the staff couldn't have been more helpful.  I told them it was our anniversary (one year!  Hooray for ME) and they hooked us up with free parking, free breakfast, and a couple glasses of wine.

The next morning, we partook of our free breakfast at Brella's, the restaurant located in the hotel.

Worst. breakfast. ever.

A bold statement, I agree, but I stand by it.  It was a buffet of the worst scrambled eggs and burnt cold potatoes.  If you stuck to toast and cereal, I guess you'd be alright, but my husband tried the biscuits and gravy and a couple of sausages.  I've never seen him leave food to be "wasted", but even he couldn't choke down this drek.  How do you screw up a biscuit, you may ask.  I don't know.  

At least the coffee was good, but if you screw up coffee in Seattle, I think they run you out of town.

I wouldn't stay here again, although I feel bad for the wonderful people who work here since there's little they can do about the thin walls in this joint.  They really do try to accomodate with their excellent service though.

I have stayed at the Best Western Executive Inn three times now, and would recommend it. I travel to Seattle on business and this is conveniently located close to downtown but also close to where my events are located.

What I like most about the Best Western is the location, the Space Needle is  about two blocks away which is a great attraction but also means that if I get lost I can make my way to the Needle and find my hotel. The Experience Music Project (which always has great rotating exhibits) is also in the same central location along with the Science Fiction Hall of Fame (robots!), and Monorail (cheap!). It is also close to a Whole Foods Market and easily accessible to the highway and the way to the airport. The monorail is super convenient to down town and brings you within walking distance of Pike Place, shopping, the Seattle Art Museum, and Pioneer Plaza. It's only $4 round trip and the ride is about five minutes.

The Staff is all pretty helpful. My second time staying there the Mini Fridge in the room was broken and they sent someone up right away to fix it. Parking is $15 a day and they recommend parking in the garage because they lock it up at night.

The restaurant is kind of gross. They now have free continental breakfast which is convenient but if it wasn't free, there is no way I would pay for it. There is nothing grosser than a vat of cottage cheese. Unless you try the coffee. I recommend going somewhere else. I had a hard time finding places to eat close by and went to Whole Foods quite often. But be adventurous and go to some of the neighborhoods where you'll find all kinds of things to eat.

Now, on to the rooms! Ask for a room facing the Space needle and you'll have a great view! The rooms are always clean and comfortable. very spacious. there is a mini fridge and microwave in every room which is nice if you like to go to whole foods and eat in. The beds and pillows are pretty comfortable as well. The showers have pretty good pressure and the toilets have a LOT of flushing power. All the products they use are very eco friendly and VEGAN. there are recycle baskets in every room as well. which is a nice touch. FREE WiFi is also nice.

The neighborhood seems to have gotten worse though. Last year I walked around a little to take pictures and the most I encountered were some aggressive homeless. This year there were quite a few sirens and a bunch of guys parked along the road squealing their tires and yelling. I wouldn't recommend walking around alone at night if you are female. And there is quite a bit of construction going on, which was actually pretty quiet. Other people have commented about the noise but over all the place is pretty quiet.

Final word: A good place to stay and a great deal at about $99 a night.

Don't let the outside fool you. The rooms are beautiful and the lobby cozy plus the hotel is in walking distance to the space needle, 5 Points Cafe and many more great places. We got room 502 and the view was to die for.

My friends stay here regularly. It is so convenient to everything downtown if you are a downtown person.

The pool is nice and the area was very clean when I walked through.

The free breakfast buffet is generous and thoughtful. (I did get sick afterwards - and I shall never know  if it was from here eating bacon which I rarely eat or elsewhere) Free internet in the lobby. Free parking. Groups going and coming in lobby and pleasant staff..

I recommend this place regularly to friends who are coming to Seattle with business at the Center for festivals. They come back and stay here again year after year.

Location, location, location.  This hotel is in a great spot.  You can walk to the Seattle Center, Space Needle, EMP and Belltown.  That's why I booked it and was super happy it met my expectations.
That being said the rest of the hotel left little to draw me back in for another visit.  The beds were clean but uncomfortable.  The pillows must be designed for giants, they were so huge, my neck still hurts.  I thought it was tacky that when we were waiting for the elevator in the garage entrance and also at the lobby there were mops sitting in dirty water.  These should have been put away if staff were done using them.
Amenities in the room were decent, no complaints there.  Fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, coffee maker, everything you need to survive.  WiFi was bad, couldn't get enough signal to use our tablet.  We only stayed one night so it wasn't a huge impact that we had to be without internet.  
It served out purpose for our one night adventure but probably wouldn't stay there again.

I think i just really like best western hotels. This was one was particularly nice and our room was soooo big! LOVED IT! The front desk was very friendly and accomodating since i booked the room for the wrong night! she was very nice in being able to give me a night for the time we actually needed it. I'd stay again :D

Why am I writing a review of a hotel in my own city??

Well, this place was the most convenient place to meet before the Skoochies Reunion that was happening pretty much across the street in the original club (now it is one3one, DV8 or some all ages club).

I do have to say, with as many people that were dressed in 80s goth & punk or as 80s Madonna wannabes walking through the halls of the hotel, the staff was VERY patient, just watched and smiled.  Maybe it does pay to be an adult????   Our younger years, the cops definitely would have been called on us.

The small amount I did see of the hotel rooms, they seemed clean and a place I would stay in, if from out of town.

The bar downstairs was a little too well lit for my taste and reminded me of an airport bar.  However it did have a pool table, which was fun to have access to while pre-funking prior to going to the reunion.

The bartenders seemed to be a little overwhelmed by the amount of people in the bar.  I imagine they don't get that many people in the bar at once.  Although it wasn't packed, I think one of the bartenders was pretty green.  Even so, they still had smiles on their faces and moved as quick as they knew how to and were always friendly.  
I'd imagine though, if visiting Seattle, you wouldn't be spending too much in the hotel bar since you are close to downtown and there are plenty of things to explore day and night.

Overall, if I was from out of town or I was directing someone from out of town on where to stay that was "reasonable" in price (under a $100 per night), a decent place to stay and close to downtown, the space needle, key arena, etc this would be one place I'd suggest.

This review is strictly for the restaurant located not far from the main lobby of this hotel. I was there last night visiting my boyfriend's parents who were staying there for a few days. We went to the restaurant and there was only ONE waitress working the whole room, and a few busboy type employees would cruise through the dining area once in a blue moon, but they weren't helping with waitressing at all. The waitress, I think she was someone seasoned, a bit older, with a blonde asymetrical "bob", seemed annoyed by us needing a table where 5 people could actually sit and see each other during dinner, as darn it, she'd have to clean the table. I think I even saw her roll her eyes? Anyway the service was the slowest service I have literally EVER encountered in my life. There were not THAT many people there - was this gal the CHEF too?! Very strange for a large, busy hotel. We saw other people getting their food first. I cannot imagine our food was THAT complicated. Many times I saw her over at the checkstand area for VERY long periods of time either chatting or I'm not sure what, but when our meals got to us, the burgers were burnt and dry, so obviously the amount of time we spent waiting was very reflected in the food that we were served. She didn't perk up and become nice until the very end, because she wanted a tip, plainly obvious when a waitress waits THAT long to be nice or attentive. She filled our waters one extra time during the whole 2 hours we sat there waiting. My boyfriend's water was only filled halfway. Very strange evening. I'm not a remotely rude person at restaurants and several times I wanted to get up and ask "what is UP back there in the kitchen?!" Sigh.... Long night.

The hotel wasn't too bad for the price and location. It's walking distance from the Space Needle and restaurants so, you don't need to worry about driving. The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. They were able to check us in early and was very helpful with the area and transportation. The cab ride to the pier was about $6 which was worth it since parking is a mess by the pier. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

Certainly not cheap but reasonably priced for Seattle. Location in an upcoming area close to the Space Needle. For a tourist who only wants a reasonably decent place to stay at night it fits the bill - did not eat at the hotel becuase the restaurant looked really depressing.

A friend of mine stayed here last time and recommended this hotel for its location. We requested a room with the view of Space Needle.

This hotel offers Eco friendly rooms. It only has 5 floors and we were on the second floor with an amazing view of the Space Needle. There was also a mini microwave and fridge in our room, however, the fridge is never cold. They offer natural, hypoallergenic personal care products that smells pretty good. Throughout the rooms they have placed cards for you to read on how you can help promote an Eco friendly environment. I come to find out that people in Seattle loves to recycle.

This hotel is quiet and is 5 minutes away from Space Needle and the Seattle Duck Tour.

I will definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to visit Seattle.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Building is really old and dated. Really could do with some paint on the exterior. The hotel was clean but you could really tell its age. Staff were friendly, but not particularly helpful. Josh provides a phoney smile that doesn't even last long enough for the customer to look away. So not fooled Josh! We received a room adjacent to the alley with all the associated noise. $18 for parking. The restaurant was not particularly good. Breakfast buffet is pretty good for $8. However, when we went to the restaurant for dinner we had a really bad experience. Arrived and was promptly seated. Server brought out the menu's and waters. Then disappeared for at least 20 minutes. Bear in mind we were the only people in the entire restaurant. An elderly couple showed up and waited at the front desk to be seated but the waiter was still missing. After 25 minutes of sitting there we got up and left and complained to the front desk. Staff were not responsive. Stay somewhere else. Not worth the $200+ per night. I heard the font desk quote someone $285 per night. Hell no!! Yes it's close to the space needle, but there are many other options available in Seattle.

I used Priceline for the first time a few weeks ago to find a hotel in Seattle, and I ended up with a reservation at this hotel for $100/night.  You really can't beat the location.  It's two blocks away from the Space Needle, close to a monorail station, and a 15 minute walk away from downtown.  I called ahead because we were arriving late, and the front desk staff were really accommodating.  When we arrived, there was no parking spaces left, so the staff let us use one of their bus parking spaces.  One thing you should know is that parking is $18.30 a day (tax included), which is a bit expensive but it's better than leaving your car on the street.

We stayed on the second floor of the hotel.  We did not have a view of the Space Needle, but our view was alright.  The rooms are very nice, and come with a safe, microwave, and mini fridge. The beds are also super comfy, with probably the best pillows I've ever had in a hotel.  One thing I really liked was the shampoo, soap, and conditioner dispenser in the shower.  So convenient!  No more worrying about burning through that tiny hotel shampoo bottle during your shower.  Another bonus was that our room was really quiet.

We had the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning.  For $7.95 a person, you can choose from a variety of breakfast burrito ingredients, waffles, toast, cereal, bacon, and scrambled eggs.  It wasn't the best breakfast I've ever had, but it was far from the worst.  We tried to go to the bar in the hotel, but it was closed after midnight.  

I would definitely stay here again.  Thank you Priceline for a great hotel!

The big complaint I have about this hotel is mainly the strict 4 PM check-in policy. We flew into Seattle around 10 and got to the hotel around noon. We were forced to stick around until 4 to check in. However, once checked in, the room is decent and clean. It is also nearby to enough convenient places such as restaurants. Last but not least, this hotel is within 5 minute walking distance from the Space Needle, quite convenient for tourists.

Great location, everywhere you could want to go is literally within blocks and no farther than two miles! Be sure to ask for a room on the side with the Space Needle- awesome view.

Eco friendly hotel.
Friendly restaurant staff (Brella's serves very generous portions of good quality food)
Warm, cozy lobby.
Wi-Fi included with stay!
Big king bed but not the fluffiest or softest.
Nice tv/ lots of channels.
Lots of counter space in the bathroom to get ready ( ladies ;) )

Biggest complaint: noises! The walls are THIN. I woke up with my neighbor's kids the first morning at this hotel. Very frustrating. I would come back for a short stay (and NOT on any type of busy holiday weekend where noise level would be high like that of St. Party's Day weekend)

Staff was really friendly, informative and helpful. Anastazia at the front was kind enough to acknowledge my birthday with a balloon tied to their Rub With Love snack canister and a card. How awesome! They made some great restaurant suggestions, too.

It's an older Best Western with a restaurant and conference room. There was a convenient office area that had computers and fax machine available for use.

Our room was clean, spacious and comfy with a microwave and fridge. Perfect picture taking views of the Needle and Experience Music Project Museum designed by Frank Gehry outside of our room window.

Pretty decent breakfast buffet spread that is inside the on-site restaurant.

I used Priceline and got a great deal on the Best Western Plus Executive Inn.  Using Priceline you don't always have control over where you stay.  I was very happy with my stay at the BWPEI in Seattle. It was a great place for my husband and I to spend our 23rd anniversary.   The rooms come equipment with a mini refrigator and microwave.

The staff was friendly (***Martha, Nathan, Tuck, Brad).  Every staff person we came in contact with was helpful taking time to hear our interest and then giving us recommendations on places we might want to visit and/or eat.

The enviroment at BWPEI is welcoming, it's nice just to sit in the lobby and watch the rain.  The BWPEI is close to the Space Needle and we were able to walk to Pike's Place.  The following day we walk to the Big Wheel, but we caught a bus back to BWPEI.  The hotel is close to many buslines so you can go everywhere without the pricey cost of tour buses.  Visit Kerry Park too!  I think Bus 13 goes us the hill  and you get off at Highline.  Kerry Park has the next best view to see all of Seattle outside the Space Needle and you can see it for free!

The other great thing...don't waste time getting a shuttle from the airport.  Take the light rail and then the monorail and it is a short walk to the hotel. Your total cost approx $5.25 per person vs. shuttles that will run you $38 or more per person.

I took the time to write this review, because I use YELP to help me make decisions on where stay.  I know people normally write when things are very bad or very good.

Best Western Plus Executive Inn Seattle was very good!  Next time I visit Seattle, I won't need Priceline...I will call the hotel directly because I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Seattle!

The only CON....there is a lot of construction in the area so the views are obstructed. However, we realized that there is construction all over Seattle, so there you have it.

I hope this will be helpful for someone!

The rooms are mediocre at best, and hope that your side if facing the Seattle Center. They advertise breakfast, but only have a breakfast buffet next door you pay for on top of the high price of the room. You can't beat the location, but I'd find another hotel and walk a little further.

The front desk clerk knew this was their last vacant room. He raised the room rate to beyond a premium, and offered no discounts whatsoever. In his words "this is our last room, I could have rented it out 3 times over, I don't have to give any discounts". I sure didn't feel like a valued customer at The Best Western! Last time staying at this hotel chain. I filed a complaint with Best Western, who did nothing about my experience.

We stayed here for one night in December 2013.  Staff was fantastic, very sweet especially Martha and her co-worker, who I didn't catch his name but he looked a lot like a young John Barrowman or Nathan Fillion...easy on the eyes, if you know what I mean.  They were both professional and upbeat, even though they had to work the day after Christmas. We had a free night coupon on my phone and Martha just had me email to her so she could print it and use it.

It's an older hotel with low ceilings, but it's clean with mostly modern upgrades.  The room was a nice size and our view of the Space Needle was excellent.  It is literally a block from the Seattle Center which includes the Space Needle, EMP Museum, Pacific Science center and about 12 other attractions, which was our whole purpose for coming to Seattle.  

Checkout was easy and painless and again, the staff was very friendly.  

The only drawback to this hotel was breakfast buffet.  It was pretty crappy, especially for having to pay $8.00 per person.  It was pretty much on par with the free continental breakfasts you get at many other hotels and honestly, if it were free I would not be complaining.

I would stay here again, but have breakfast elsewhere.

Shabby - and not in the wierd folk artsy way but in the old, worn out and dead tired way..

I have stayed at my share of Best Westerns, and for a chain they did ok by me.. but now I need to regroup after this place.

And just where do they get off with the name that includes:
Best - as in what?
and they have the nerve to add Plus- as in maybe - extra bad?
And finally, no self-respecting executive would be caught dead here - or maybe they would.. hmm..
They should change the name to Worst Western Minus Extra points for adding Executive Inn.

Here are the minuses:
A quiet room is a room that has all the garbage bins under your window.
A quiet room is a room on the same side as the building that's being demolitioned.
A quiet room is one right next to the elevator.
Walls, windows,rug all need updating.
Rug had stains.
Greenwashing items (keeps them on the cheap). Things like a dispenser for unnamed shampoo/conditioner/lotion.
Location was kind of hidden in the bowels of Seattle despite the Space Needle's closeness.
Paid way too much for this.

Pluses (oh that's why this word is tacked on to the hotel name)
Staff though clueless about their whereabouts/location are "nice" enough
The loud noise of the old a/c drowned out the sounds from outside
The housekeeping staff seemed to be doing a great job despite what they were stuck working with.
Cheap flat screen. (I think I would have preferred an antique tv to match the surroundings.)
A remote that is supposed to keep you from getting germs? How much money did they have to pay to install that feature?
Wifi (FREE, and it actually was fast) (Ah, there's the REAL plus factor)
15.00 only parking fee. Great for Seattle!

2 stars for the staff, including housekeeping.

Management -  FOCUS on what needs to be changed and fixed and stop adding products that just increase the bad contrast of this place!

We had an awesome view of the Space Needle. That pretty much sold it for us. Well, that and the amazingly comfortable bed that makes getting up slightly hard. Walls are a bit thin, some construction going on, but nothing worth complaining about. Guys at the front desk were polite and perfectly chatty when asked questions. There were even cookies at one point (I took two, muhahaha). It was only a block away from the Seattle Center (Space Needle, EMP, PCS) and the Monorail.

Talk about a view of the space needle. It was so close I could touch it, a short walk from the hotel to Chihuly museum (must see) and the monorail! That takes you to Pike Place and many other places to visit. Just make sure you ask for the space needle view. And at 4pm they make fresh cookies. This is the place. Great price and great staff. Thanks

This hotel was a good price and I didn't really find any major problems with my stay. I stayed this past week with my husband and we both enjoyed it. The rooms were a decent size and we had an awesome view of the Space Needle!

There may be nicer hotels in Seattle but this one was perfect for our budget. Close enough to walk to different places and plenty of food around. The staff was friendly (some more than others) and it overall was a really nice trip. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Room was average. Our refrigerator was very loud. Had to unplug it. The woman who checked us in at the front desk staff was rude. Would not recommend.

As a brief update to prior (lesser) review -- the hotel appears to offer better wifi, and less overnight noise if you are able to request a top (5th floor) room on the far (Space Needle) side of the hotel. That still leaves a substantial number of less than ideal alley side rooms. The staff is generally helpful, but a very strange incident occurred yesterday when housekeeping found a few rolled up (hardcore pornography) magazines behind the mattress while changing linens and later tried to return them when their shift was over. Very. Strange.

Great overall experience

Cleanliness and Amenities =GREAT
Lobby and room were very pleasant (room had fridge, microwave, iron, coffee pot, wi-fi, the usual suspects). Free cookies in lobby - chewy awesomeness!

View = GREAT
The Space Needle - RIGHT there (ask for that side of hotel!!)
(looking down at the street was not pretty.  Dingy old buildings... dumpster or two)

Front Desk Service = EXCELLENT
Justin was professional and friendly. . A few days later Josh helped with a Q. we had about our room charges - super helpful and personable. Thank you to both!

IMPORTANT---  Be sure to ask about ALL taxes and fees (including nightly parking fee) before you hand over your card.  They are all typical center-city charges - but wow, they really add up. Be sure you are aware.

Check HOTELS.COM for a better rate for this hotel but BEWARE ... if anything goes wrong such as they charge your card incorrectly Or you want to change/cancel reservation HOTELS.COM will be a pain in the neck about giving you a refund and you'll have to wait at least 24 hours for it to show up on your card!!!!!!

Booked one night here last minute due to some travel issues. Called up the place after looking on hotels.com . Really nice guy on the phone and booked fast. Parking cost $15 plus tax in a secure garage. However, the room is the reason for the 2-star rating. The doorway was very narrow and once we stepped inside, we knew why--there was a door connecting the room next to us. The walls and doors are thin so noise comes in easily (we woke up to the sounds of people having sex). The furniture is dated and the carpet didn't seem 100% clean (kept our socks on). The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean, though.

Stayed for one night when my parents and I came up to check out a school. Lobby was nice, staff was friendly, the room was clean but small. I guess they're more suited for 2 people than 3, I guess. I liked that they make an effort to be environmentally conscious.

Our room, unfortunately, did not face the Space Needle, but it was facing east, so we got a beautiful sunrise in the morning. I think the beds were memory foam? Not that comfortable, but then again, no hotel bed is ever going to be as comfortable as home.

We decided to grab the breakfast buffet that their restaurant offers, which was $7.95/person plus tax. It was okay, but definitely not worth $8 a pop, maybe $4.

But it's close to the city center, which is a big plus. Definitely a good value. Would stay here again if needed.

It was clean.
It has free Wi-Fi and workout room.
Ergo, 2 stars.

The bar is kind of disgusting with mediocre service.
Breakfast is only available buffet-style.
I think there is something growing in the corner of my room.
Ergo, 2 stars.

This has been a great place to stay. From the moment we walked in the door, the front desk lady greeted us with a smile and was super friendly. She made an effort to find out why we were here, and how she could help. She also had a few different rooms for us to choose from. The cleaning staff was friendly with extra coffee in the hallway. We left for the day and when we returned, the cleaning person had made up my daughters bed with her blanket and stuffies. Super sweet. I recommend this place to anyone.

I have to admit, I am a TOTAL prima donna when it comes to hotels.  I once booked a place in Southern California that I paid for in advance, and when I went to check in, said HELL TO THE NO, and went someplace else.  I also do not like to pay full price.  That was not the case w/ this joint.  I actually had a first choice, but waited too long to book.  But I liked the location of this (close to monorail, which is as close to mass transit as you're gonna get in Seattle), and the reviews seemed good.  Plus I've stayed at BW's before...I figured it was ok.  I was pleasantly surprised by my experience.  I wouldn't mind staying here again.  We didn't have a room facing the Space Needle unfortunately, but it was walking distance to that and the EMP and the monorail. There were also some great dive bars around the corner.  The staff was incredibly cordial.  

WiFi is free if you are a guest.  They cater to the business person w/ newspapers every morning, and business center.  There are several board rooms, I even noticed the local BNI chapter met there. There is a breakfast buffet for a nominal fee.  It was pretty good! Even had waffle makers.  And if you know me, I LOVE breakfast.

Location is the best thing going for this hotel. Our room had a space needle view, which was stunning. But, other than that -- I wouldn't select this hotel again. I asked for a room when I booked not too close to the ice machine - and was put almost directly across from it. The room itself was spacious, but wasn't entirely clean. There was dried hair stuck to the wall in the vanity section and a piece of plastic from a water bottle left on the floor in plain sight. The walls are paper thin and I could everything in the adjoining room. Check in was fast -- so that is a plus, but parking is an additional charge.  Overall ... Wish I had taken my $200 and gone somewhere else for the night.

We stayed here for 4 days for a recent trip and while the stay was nothing spectacular, it was the best value for the location and I'd probably stay here again. I didn't travel to stay in a luxurious room all day, I came to wander the city and see the sights.

My goal on this trip was to be within walking distance of Pike Place, downtown, Seattle Center, Capitol Hill, and use my car as little as possible. Everything is within walking distance of this hotel including tourist attractions as well as a great selection of places to eat and drink. I felt safe walking in this area, even at night.

Now on to the hotel. Yes it's old and dated. But it's clean and has the amenities you need: comfy beds, fridge and microwave, parking, and a surprisingly amazing view of the space needle and EMP museum right outside our window! The walls are VERY thin, so request a room away from the elevators.

Don't come here expecting a first class resort. But if you want stay that offers value and convenience and are ok with basic amenities, then this place will suit your needs just fine.

Not bad at all! Pretty great actually!

Yes the hotel ain't no trump hotel but as far as affordable hotels goes this place was really great.  

My room over looked the space needle and at night it's actually really pretty. The rooms have heater and cable which means if your trying to rest on a winters night, you're good to go!

There is a 24 hour fitness room next to the lobby which has one of each basic machines.  It is the same room as the laundry facilities but everytime I went it was empty.  

The only reason it is not a 5 star is because the front desk service was inconsistent. We were promised two different things from different people, each telling us of different policy they had to follow . Ultimately it worked out but initially we were left confused...

Other than that the hotel is at a great location.  There is a 24 hour walgreens and dive bar in close proximiry so late night needs are all accounted for! Plus the two malls downtown are less than a mile away so totally walkable from hotel!

I recommend!

Stayed here when I was visiting Seattle and I thought it was a decent hotel. It's not a super fancy hotel but I thought it was a lot better than many budget hotels.

It was a really good location for what I had planned on my stay. The hotel was literally a couple blocks from the Space needle so it was walk-able if you want to go there, EMP museum and the Chihuly gardens. We had the perfect view of the Space Needle too!! It also was about 1.5 miles from Pike Market place. We were able to walk to Lola and then Pike market from there. Granted, we were pretty tired after we visited Pike Market place, but it really gave us a chance to soak up Seattle. Pretty much all the touristy attractions were walk-able distance.

The room came with the basic amenities. I really liked that there was a microwave and fridge in the room for your leftovers and what not. I loved that they had a soap dispenser too haha. And if you know me.. you know I'll judge their water pressure and it was EXCELLENT!!! Definitely a plus!! However, parking was about $20 a night with ins and outs.

Service wasn't the best here.. but that's fine since I wasn't at the hotel that much, just a place to wind down and relax after a long day. I would probably stay here again if I ever visit Seattle.

I've learned to not get my hopes up with hotels.  I kept my expectations low, considering this was a Best Western and not a Hilton.  During my last trip to Seattle, I was pleasantly surprised.

I booked a Space Needle-facing room on hotels.com and requested the top floor of the hotel, if possible.  We actually got it and it was totally worth it.  A beautiful, Instagram-worthy view of the Needle and the EMP Museum (which is really pretty at night, since it changes colors).  Only complaint about the room was that the chair had a hole in the armrest from wear and tear.  Other than that, everything was a-okay.  

Location is awesome - especially if you don't have a car.  The Space Needle + all the other attractions around it are a 5-10 minute walk away.  The Seattle Monorail is also there.  It runs every 10 minutes and gets you to downtown/Pikes Place Market/5th Avenue shopping in less than 5.  If you DO have a car, parking is $15/night (BOO).

Staff was all really nice.  Best of all, every afternoon, they roll out a cart into the lobby with a mini oven and bake FRESH COOKIES.
