    This is a simple, no frills hotel - with ghosts. Yes, you heard that right.  It's located in the heart of lower Queen Anne which means its close to EVERYTHING! There are plenty of restaurants, boutiques, grocert stores nearby so you'll never be bored staying there. Now for the strange part. It is supposedly haunted. I don't normally believe that sort of thing but the place has been around for quite a while. A friend of mine invited a business associate to Seattle and the company put up her friend in that hotel. Nothing much was said during her stay. A year later they were talking again and when she was supposed to come to town again she asked that they put her in a different hotel. When my friend asked why she said that on the night that she stayed there she didn't sleep a wink because she kept feeling a hand brushing across her face! Personally, i've never experienced anything like that before but I'm sort of thinking that I'd like to spend the night there sometime! sounds cool. I doubt you'll get the same experience staying at motel 6!

    I definitely would stay here again. For the price it's 4 stars, but 3 stars overall. Neighborhoody feel, centrally located near restaurants, nightlife, groceries, and very close (minutes away) to downtown, freeway, and attractions. Friendly, helpful staff and economically priced. A place with "character" that I appreciate, though I can see how others may want something more mainstream. Small ex studio  apartments with tiny kitchenettes. 3 floors with no elevator. Free wi-fi was ok. Out of 4 showers, 1 had the drop in water pressure that another reviewer experienced. If I were management I would updated the furniture and get rid of the Motel 6 bedcovers that are shown on the website. This place could easily be made into a boutique type place, but I'm glad they haven't.

    for the price, this is a really fabulous place!  clean, comfortable, great location and a friendly, helpful staff.
    we were in seattle because of a family crisis so our plans were unclear.  we had last minute changes to both the type of room we needed and the length of our stay.  the staff was very understanding and accommodating and even allowed us to take advantage of a "stay 2 nights get one free" more than once.  in a difficult time, they made us feel welcome, comfortable and safe.  and that, as they say, is priceless!

    this review is based on my stay here 1-1/2 years ago.

    it makes me mad that this place is trying to sell itself as this charming, historic, quaint little inn... when all it is is an old housing complex that's been converted into a piece-of-s**t hotel.  

    we got a room that was supposed to be one of their top-end units.  it came with a kitchenette and walk-in closet.  this "kitchenette" had an old fridge, which i opened shortly after checking into the room... the nasty rotten-vegetable-like smell that shot out of the fridge was indescribable... we had to open the window to let the air out and then leave the room for a couple hours.  needless to say, we never touched anything in the kitchen after that.

    then the night came, and we find out the walls are paper-thin.  there's a stairwell next to our room, and we hear guests going up and down the stairs all night long.  can hear their every conversation from out in the hallway, too.  the bed was old, with cheap-ass linens.  the only good thing was that the bathroom looked nice and clean and remodeled with decent toiletry items, although very small.  but then the bathroom itself had its own problem... there'd be no hot water in the shower after about 10minutes in the morning.  there's no reliable parking here, either.  there's a pay lot associated with the hotel, but they said it was full each of the nights we were there.  

    there was an ahole working the frontdesk.  when we complained about the shower situation, he just couldn't care less.  

    think super 8 or travelodge, without the hot shower and with much thinner walls.  that's essentially what you get at this place.

    Reasonable.  Not to fancy.  Our room had a kitchen which we weren't expecting.  Very clean.  I would stay again for the right price.

    I stayed at this inn three different trips to Seattle. Most recently I am waiting for some home renovations to finish and stayed here for 2 weeks straight.  It is nice that they give a better rate if you stay over a week ($60/night instead of $70), but like other reviewers have mentioned, there is a $10/night fee for parking. On Sunday you should not pay for parking at inn at queen anne, because street parking is free.  The bed is comfortable and the room has lots of practical things, big closet, microwave, fridge, stove, silverware/cups/plates/bowls/small pot and pan, tv, iron with board, etc.  The heater is an old school water radiator and it is hard to adjust (it either gets too hot or too cold if you completely turn it off).  There is access to laundry.  The staff is nice. The location was convenient for me and there are many restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores nearby.  All in all a good place to stay.  If you have a chance, try to ask for a room in the middle of the hotel (on one side there is construction across the street, and on the other side is Dicks drive in, which can be loud late on weekends).  I stayed in room 308 and it was quiet and clean.  However this room had WIFI that would cut out for a few minutes every once in a while and was generally slow (in the other rooms/times I stayed I did not have this problem).  Because of the WIFI being slow and parking costing extra I could not give this place 5 stars, but I had a nice stay, and even considering the parking fee it is a low price for the area.

    It's not quite downtown, but the Inn at Queen Anne (in lower QA/uptown) is cheap, at least off season... not such a bargain in summer. All of the rooms have kitchenettes, some have full eat-in kitchens, and it's right across the street from QFC and Seattle Center.

    A little closer to the bottom of the hill, its sister hotel, the MarQueen, is a little nicer and more expensive.

    So, seriously, you get what you paid for... and in this case, I feel like we got more than that. The staff is friendly, helpful, and provides awesome service. The place doesn't come with the usual amenities you would find at a 5 star hotel, but it's definitely great value and provides enough for a comfortable stay.

    It's true that the rooms are a little small and there is no elevator, but they tell you this on the website so no need to complain! I got full signal for the wireless network and never had a problem with it - it was just regular DSL. They had a pretty big TV in the room with lots of channels (80+) so I was never bored in the room.

    I love that there is a little kitchenette (great for leftovers from restaurants) and the inn provides utensils, cookware, plates, bowls, etc. enough for 4 people. There is also a microwave and the inn offers complimentary continental breakfast every morning!

    There is a heater in the room, and a fan. It gets pretty stuffy with the heater but thankfully (if you can read their handout), you can actually adjust the temperature or turn it off completely. The inn is in a fairly quiet neighborhood and within walking distance of the Seattle Center. They also offer a free complimentary shuttle to various downtown locations. Or, you can walk (about a mile from Pike Place) or take the monorail into the heart of downtown.

    Great value and convenient location. I am definitely going to stay here again!

    Was descent and clean.  Great views of the needle.  These were studios once and were turned into hotel rooms so they have a kitchenette with laundry facilities in the building.  Great if you are going to be staying longer then a couple of days.  $100 a day that is centrally located...great.  I will come back and stay again.

    It was ok. I mean cute sure but no frills here. The courtyard was nice, our room over looked it.

    The breakfast options sucked period. The kitchenettes were neat. We stocked up on snacks so we could have some munchies in the room. The beds were small and old they sufficed.

    The price was decent. If you have no other options give it a try it was not horrible just plain jane. The bath rooms are cute and the look and feel of the place is cute to but ehh.

    I'm actually not picky about where I stay. Yet, a big minus came when there was no appliance outlet in the bathroom. How will I blow dry my hair??? Oh wait, they didn't even offer a blow dryer like most hotels do. I was pleasantly surprised when I called room service, and we were able to retrieve a blow dryer in the downstairs lobby. The rooms are little, but they offer a cool kitchenette and a small eating area. The other perk is that they have juice and coffee going all day in the lobby. Breakfast muffins are also found in the lobby if you wake up early enough. Overall I'd rate this place a 7.

    I'm a fan of the Inn at Queen Anne!  My second stay here was even better than the first.  Surprise upgrade to my room ... Sweet!  The Queen Suite!  Comfy, DVD player, and -- with an exceptionally warm day in Seattle --  the AC was working and efficient. Phew!  

    My only gripe is the lack of an elevator, but the kitchenettes, charm and service make up for it.

    I'm used to simple, no frills, but this is ridiculous!  

    Stayed here for four days for a conference and got a total of 17 hours sleep over the course of those four days!  All I needed was a bed, a toilet, and a sink.  I'm not particular.  I like it to be clean and quiet and I figured I'd be gone all day, so what really did I need?  Apparently, not all hotels/motels are the same...

    If you decide to stay here, be prepared to pack your bag with the following:

    1) Ear plugs...it doesn't block out all noise, but helps.  There is a daily morning delivery from 4:4am to 6am that not only wakes you up, but keeps you up.  

    The walls are toilet paper thin.  You can hear EVERYTHING next door, including people using the toilet, coughing and talking.  It is as if there is not really a wall there, but a sheet.

    2) Cushion:  I like hard beds.  Actually I love them.  But this was like sleeping on "soft" cement.  

    3) Fan: Seattle to us Californians is cold, right?  Not in these rooms - you sweat and the ceiling fan doesn't go on unless the light is also on.  If you open the window, you can hear the noise more clearly.  

    4)  Air Cleaner: While the air is brisk and fresh outside, it is stale inside - while in the room my allergies went rampant fluctuating between stuffy and runny nose, with lots of sneezing.

    5)  Banana: Breakfast with danishes and coffee you say?  Try Folgers type coffee and brown bread with a toaster.  Since I was up and out by 7:30 and breakfast is served starting at 7am, I saw the full display.  

    6) Charm even when sleep-deprived: When I complained to the staff that I'm six months pregnant, attending a conference from 8am to 5pm and sleeping 4.5 hours a night, they were totally unsympathetic, and told me I had the "quietest" room in the entire hotel and there wasn't another room we could move to.  My hubby called on the last night, told them they were ridiculous, and insisted on a room change, which we finally got - at midnight, but that was only because the party next door had gotten out of control.

    7) Key-maker: one key per room, not per person.  If you're going out, you leave the key at the front desk for your spouse to pick up.  when they give you the key, they do not look up your name to make sure you are who you are.  I came in and said, "I'm here to pick up my key," to which they passed me a key and said, "this is?" and then turned away without waiting for an answer.

    8) Wireless:  They say they provide free wireless, but if you try to send an email, there is not enough "oomph" for it to go through and to check out an internet page, it takes about five minutes to load.  Um...is that still considered free wireless?

    Obviously, this place isn't getting a second chance.

    Its a little noisy from the street traffic, but not bad at all. If you are a light sleeper than even the slightest noise will keep you up then you may want to look elsewhere. If you need a cheap hotel in downtown Seattle that is central to everything then this place fits. The rooms come with a kitchen so if you want you can pick up food at pikes place and bring it back to your room to cook. That alone makes your visit to Seattle much more fun.

    This is a great low budget option for visitors to Seattle, especially if you are planning on spending time in the Belltown/Queen Anne/Seattle Center area.  It is walking distance to any of those places.  

    We rented several rooms for a bachelorette party, with the thought that we'd be too drunk to drive home (to the Central District and Everett).  This is an old building, with limited services, old school appliances and furnishings.  But its cheap and quaint and clean.  Well, clean enough for being right in the middle of action.

    It's actually a really cute little property which is nicely landscaped with gardens and whatnot.  Highly recommended for the low-to-medium budget traveler.

    Large, clean, and basic rooms in an excellent urban location.  Can't beat the price tag.

    But dude, I had to lug my luggage up three flights of stairs.  For serious?  Yeah.  No elevator.  

    The rooms appeared to have been studio apartments in a past life.  They weren't very modern, weren't at all glitzy, and could be called grungy on an off day.  But they were just what we needed for a clean and friendly, reasonably-priced place to crash during a weekend in Seattle.

    Warning:  Parking's a bit of a bitch.  You have to park up the block at the ritzier hotel, a sister property to this one.  Also, remember that you'll have to take the stairs.  Not ideal for anyone with a disability.

    On the up side, that probably means there aren't rats.
    On the down, little droppings in the kitchenette. Inability to catch a single wink because you're too busy listening for scurrying.
    The front desk said they'd never heard of this before, like it was new. It's not new. This is an old building and other reviewers have mentioned it before. They must know and even if they won't acknowledge it upon booking a room, they should at least have a plan if a customer notices it. No room change, no refund...yet.
    The kitchenette in the photos is nicer than the one we had.
    The carpet looks warn, and yucky, the arm chair looks well used and mite-ridden. I brought my own sheets, comforter and pillows for a queen sized bed, as the bed sheets are standard itchy cotton and the comforter the standard pilly one-sided coverlet.
    The building has a distinctive charm and the courtyard is okay, just a few chairs a table and an umbrella in a garden. good location (like the 3 other hotels in the same area you could choose from and would be wise to do so...) but that's all it has going for it. Pretty bare bones, not stellar service.

    The sacrifice of a comfortable room at a "luxury" hotel in the area for the extra $100 you'd get by staying here is worth it if:
    1. You can sleep knowing there are mice in your room.
    2. You bring your own sheets (not going to help much without #1)
    3. Your willing to take a gamble with your health, a small one relative to if you were staying in a hotel with rats, which as long as you have mice you can be pretty sure you don't.

    List of amenities:
    Fairly loud window units in every room with A/C and fan settings
    About 100 stations on Comcast
    Table and two chairs, a yucky armchair you want to avoid, a tv stand dresser
    A small walk-in closet with hangers and 2 pillows and an ironing board
    A kitchenette with a 2 eye stove, 4 bowls, plates, glasses, and mugs each, silverware, a sink and a microwave. one pot, one pan, one tiny hand towel.
    A crappy water pressure shower head in a combo tub.
    Tiny Ecosentials (?) hand and body bar soap plus shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.
    Thin little bleach white towels.
    They do a little recycling and do the linens in a funny way.
    No feather beds or pillows.
    The "breakfast" is now officially a total of AN orange and AN apple, some truly awful coffee, sugar, and creamer, and old lipton and earl grey teas.

    The two stars rating  is only assuming they're going to give me back my money come morning.

    What a cute place. I received great service and hospitality.  Like someone else said the location is great.  I had such a great stay that my sister and her boyfriend stayed and only had good things to say.  I like the kitchenette/ studio apt feel.  Easy to get around and they will shuttle you as well.

    What a disappointment!  Sure, the price was right and the staff were very friendly, but.... I knew I had made a mistake when I walked into my room and was hit in the face with the smell of mildew as soon as I opened the door!  Ugh!  If they decide to renovate at some point, this could be a great place to stay-- but until then, stay away!

    I enjoyed my stay here.

    The hotel has the sweetest, most charming feel about the place.

    Minus one star for lacking the proper ventilation in the bathroom. Showers made the whole room steamy without much to do besides keep the door open.

    Oh well!

    Still, it's precious and within walking distance to a ton of stuff. Movies, restaurants, etc.

    I don't think it's necessary to stay at the four seasons (as if I could) when you're visiting a city... It's important to LEAVE the hotel and explore. This one doesn't rip you off and make you feel like you can't ever leave.

    They also have free wine service some evenings and free hot drinks throughout the day.

    Win. :)

    Now that I live here I wont be staying here anymore, but I feel like I should review this little diamond in the rough hotel.

    First - the good!
    Location, location, location. You seriously could not have a better location if you are planning a Seattle trip- right across the street from the Seattle Center, walking distance to Pike Place, Downtown, etc.
    And when you consider the location, the PRICE is phenomenal. Everytime I have stayed here (which is about 6 times to date) I have never had to pay more than $90 a night. Book enough in advance or find a good deal online and you are looking at $40-60 a night even if you are lucky.
    The staff here are incredibly friendly! I have never felt more welcome in any of my travels. They are quick, professional, and always willing to help you with your bags.
    The also offer a free Wine Service some evenings if that is your sort of thing.
    Free wireless acess.
    Cable if you want to stay inside, but why would you?
    Extra pillows-- a feature i love because the more pillows on the bed the better if you ask me.
    Downsides -
    Parking. There is no parking lot and unless you want to fight for street parking you will be paying an $18 a day fee for them to park your car for you.
    The rooms themselves are a little old. This is not a complaint of mine but I know some people would not find the single room + kitchenette charming.
    And lastly I have had issues twice with my hot water while here. Cold showers on a standard gray Seattle morning are not always the most welcome way to start your day.
    If you are looking for a good deal and a great location, I could not recommend this place enough though!

    I stayed here while I was looking for my first apt out west. A pretty good place to crash for a week, especially if you don't want to shell out a lot of money. You get a studio apartment in a fairly well-kept building with an oven and a big closet. Polite and helpful staff.

    Minuses: the dishes they give you are pretty darn sparse. The place isn't in perfect shape, it definitely shows its age. Also it's right near Key Arena, which can SUCK on event nights -- loud Pearl Jam fans yelling outside the window and drinking tallboys at 3 AM.

    They have ~10 parking spaces in a private lot, for $20/night, and they're often full and can't be reserved until you've checked in, which is tricky. Neighborhood is full of parking lots but most don't have in/out priviliges.

    Still, good value overall. And it's very convenient.

    The noice level is terrible.  Construction across the street.  People begging for money and sleeping in the bushes.  If hot water is important to you - stay somewhere else.  The tub fills up with water during a shower.  The sink fills up with water on it own and leaves dirt in the sink.  Really not worth the money.

    Clean, affordable, non-scary.  That's all I generally ask for when traveling to a new city.  Oh sure, I would love to stay in a posh hotel with all the amenities, but when it comes down to it, I would rather spend my money on doing things in the city I'm visiting, rather than spending a ton of money on a hotel room that I'm hardly going to be in.

    That's why I loved the Inn at Queen Anne.  The rooms were surprisingly affordable, even on a holiday weekend, and clean.  Staff was very friendly and willing to accommodate us, even when we came back drunk, slurring, asking for more pillows.  The hotel itself is conveniently located to a lot of attractions and seem to have a lot of parking in the area (I'm from San Francisco, so maybe my conception of "a lot of parking" is a different from some others).  

    If you aren't going to be spending a lot of time in your room and you need a safe, clean, affordable place to lay your head, this is a good one.

    I needed a cheap place to stay while in town for a conference. This place did just fine. It's an older building, but everything was perfectly clean and comfortable. I think my only complaint was that the pillows were flat. Otherwise, I had a comfortable stay and appreciated the reasonable price.

    Run screaming.  Most of Seattle was weirdly sold out on a Thursday night, so we booked this place through Priceline at the last minute.  Location is good, hotel is awful.  We were put on the third floor on a warm night--the smell of urine coming from the carpet was woozy-making.  The bed, the bed, the bed.  Ancient and uncomfortable--hard and crooked.  I woke up at four a.m. with a shoulder spasm.  A shoulder spasm??  And then had to do stretches on the PEE CARPET, oh yuck yuck. Tiny, cramped kitchenette thing.  Bathroom was clean, though.  When we tried to get a refund instead of staying there, the incompetent and weird hotel desk person would not refund us.  If desperate, just sleep in your car.  It's probably safer.

    Oh my guh.

    I've lived in Seattle for about a year, although I recently relocated to Poulsbo.  My mom and I booked a trip through Expedia and ended up with this Inn, which seems to be the cheapest thing around.  I had been by it plenty of times and figured it would be ok.

    All of the staff that I dealt with were extremely helpful and friendly.  No complaints there.

    The rooms have little kitchenettes with a stove, a few pans, and real glasses.  I hate wasting resources using plastic and styrofoam cups, and I was pleasantly surprised by this aspect of our stay.

    There are no elevators and few ramps, meaning you have to drag all your shit up (in our case) three flights of stairs.  My mom and I are strong, but that still sucked.  I can't imagine what it would be like as an older person, and no one in a wheelchair could stay there.

    They claim to have free wireless, but it's worse than dial-up from 1998.  I was trying to look at apartment listings and get things done online.  Thank god I have a blackberry, or we would have been making a lot of unnecessary trips to coffeeshops.

    I got the twin bed in our room, which was rickety as shit.  Three nights on that thing, and I was hunched over holding my back in pain and gulping Advil for days.

    The shower feels like an old man with prostate cancer peeing on you.  We actually gave up, and started washing off under the main spigot.  The water was barely tepid 98% of the time.

    Someone gave me a turnip from their organic garden, and we left it by the TV.  The next morning about half of it was missing.  Yes, some little rodent friend had a lovely turnip snack.  Terrific.

    You get one key regardless of how many people are in the room.

    Luckily for us, we got a pretty quiet room.  However, I saw great potential for annoyances:  stairwell doors directly next to room doors, thin walls, etc.  Bleh.

    $20 a night for parking -- there is plenty of street parking at night (free from 6pm to 8am), so if you're gone during the day, don't bother shelling out the extra $$.

    The staff claims this is in a safe neighborhood.  Sure, it's not that bad, but I did live here for a year.  If you leave shit visible in your car, it's going to get broken into.  There are lots of bums who hang out around this area, so be cognizant of that.

    I wouldn't stay here again, but if you're into the hostel thing and like Seattle Center (bleh), this may be the place for you.

    I visited Seattle back in November for some job interviews and stayed at Inn at Queen Anne due to its close proximity to bus lines, Seattle Center and downtown (relatively).  The receptionists were very friendly.  The room, however, smelled of smoke, the sheets weren't 100% white (mhmm) and there was no way to adjust the heat in the room (heated pipes??).  The bath tubs are "vintage," which means midget sized as far as I'm concerned.  Paint peeling off the walls and a bit noisy for my preference.

    It's a skip and a hop over the Space Needle if that sort of thing suits you.  There's also a Starbucks with free wifi only a block away on Queen Anne Ave.  If you like burgers, there's a Dick's out back.  Close to the Opera house and Ballet, also to Teatro Zini if you're into theater.  

    All in all, I'd only stay here if you have friends in Queen Anne or are just attending an event at the Opera.  Save yourself some time and stay downtown.  Not worth the money for Queen Anne if you ask me.

    Great sized rooms and huge closets. Kitchenette is small but functional with all the necessary supplies provided. Bathroom is a little small with no real shelf or counter space.

    Location is wonderful, within walking distance to the Space Needle. Parking is available for $15 per night and is about a block away.

    The stairwells are a bit smelly and the rooms had a little funk when we first came in. The carpets have probably seen better days, but that's what you get in an old Victorian building I guess.

    Great courtyard between the two buildings. Very helpful and friendly staff. I would come back again since the price is right, but if you're looking for high end I wouldn't look here. The hotel is basic and provides you with everything you could need in a hotel in the city with a decent price.

    Found them through Hotels.com and thought "What a great deal" Well, Sort of.. $95 for the room, $15 for parking (a block away) ...... The room was okay. Smelled a bit musty and you can tell the building was built in the late 20s early 30s. No Outlets in the bathroom, and Only a couple in the bedroom portion. Nice little kitchenette. The Internet was down (Hmm why offer it if its rarely working (Per a lot of other reviews). Overall it was okay but When I return I will stay somewhere else.

    If you want a quaint, no frills hotel close to restaurants, the Space Needle, and other attractions. This is the place to go, It reminds me of some of the hotels I have been to in Europe. It used to be apartments many years ago and they've done well to renovate the place. The free coffee in the lobby adds a nice touch and comes with a patio outside as well. Comfy beds and a neat kitchenette area. If you need a place in Seattle and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is a place to consider.

    Basically the Inn is a converted bachelor suite apartment from the 40's (if not earlier). Having broken my ankle and wearing a cast, the manager accomodated us and gave us a ground floor room, supplied extra pillow for me to elevate my leg and even offered to go get me ice so that I wouldn't have to go down the stairs.

    The rooms are spacious,with kitchens (stove, microwave and fridge), huge closet and decent sized bathrooms still fitted with 4 foot cast iron tubs.

    The Inn is perfectly located in lower Queen Anne, close to restaurants, coffee, space needle, shops and just a short distance from the local attractions of pike place market and downtown.

    The room and hotel was clean and well kept. Parking is available for $15 per day and is located across the a street. If ypu are spending the weekend, street parking is free after 6pm and on sundays and holidays.

    This place is quaint and is defnitely not for those people how are seeking 5 star luxury. Seattle has so muc to offer that if all you need is a place to sleep that is perfectly situated then the Inn at Queen Anne is the place to stay.

    Added old charm is the glass door knobs!

    Great little hotel in Seattle.  The location was perfect.  We were right across the street from the Seattle Center.  And walking distance to great restaurants.   The room was clean and comfy.  Mini kitchenette (I think the closet was bigger than the kitchen).  All in all it was great.  Very happy that we decieded to stay here.

    I definitely enjoyed my stay here. There are a plethora of things to do within walking distance. It's nothing fancy, but it gets the job done, especially when on a budget. The rooms were very clean and the staff were more than willing to make me as comfortable as possible. Don't come here expecting a luxury hotel and you won't be disappointed.. It is what it is, an old studio apartment building converted to an inn. Nothing more, nothing less.

    The Inn at Queen Anne was a godsend during an impromptu trip to Seattle in March.
    The desk staff was friendly and extremely helpful.

    I had a room on the first floor and still had a gorgeous view of the Space Needle from the kitchenette window, (+spacious walk-in closet, and eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, and soaps in the bathroom!).

    Although I did not partake; they offer free coffee and pastries in the morning as well as wine tasting in the evening.

    It was cozy, affordable, and in the heart of Capitol Hill.
    Walking distance to a 24-hr grocery store, tons of shopping locations, restaurants, as well as the Space Needle & surrounding attractions.

    I will definitely be returning to this establishment in the future.

    I feel bad about giving the Inn a 3 star review instead of a 4 star. It is a charming, historic, reasonably priced place to stay and the people who work there are warm and nice. It's located right next to Dick's Hamburgers and nearby restaurants and shops. The Space Needle is nearby also, my husband and I walked there in seemingly a few minutes.

    There aren't elevators, so if you're on the third floor, get used to the stairs. The bathroom could have been larger and it would have been nice to have more shelf space. It also gets very steamy in the bathroom when showering. I brought my own hairdryer, which worked out well for me. I did not see one in the room. It wouldn't surprise me if the front desk had those.

    There were free danishes and english muffins, coffee and juice in the morning. Inside the room, there was a small kitchenette and microwave which I never used. The bed was too hard for my taste and the room was warm, with seemingly no way to adjust the temperature. I think if I visit Seattle again, I may just reserve a room at one of the chain hotels.

    Convenient location to Seattle Center but the hotel is tired, tattered and worn out. No elevators means you haul your luggage up the stairs. My beard was black when I checked in and white when I checked in due to the very strong bleach smell in our room.

    I'll start with the positives - great location, great breakfast place around the corner as well as other restaurants and shops.  Close to bus lines and an easy 20 minute walk to Pike Place/Downtown.

    I would describe our room and the inn in general as crappy.  Our room faced the front street at it was loud.  We had to go buy ear plugs.  If you are staying in the Summer, beware that the A/C in a window unit.  So, it's blasts you with cold air (sore throat, sneezing, etc.) and it's allows more sound from the outside to come in.

    This hotel is also a walk up hotel, so if you are coming with a lot of luggage (like after a cruise) it's a pain if you are on the 2nd or 3rd floor.  There's no one to help you with your bags.

    We spoke with several other people who were staying there, and many of them were happy.  I would imagine that if you really want to stay in that neighborhood and the Inn is super cheap it might be worth it.

    Let me preface this review by saying I am not a hotel snob. I have slept in places that most people wouldn't consider being in for more than 5 minutes. I've been in rooms in Thailand that the bedroom is exactly the width & breadth of the bed that's in there, and showered with cockroaches and no lighting. So believe me when I say I'm not fussy.

    I was in Seattle (from Vancouver) for a conference and needed to arrive the day before to make the conference's 7am start. Priceline put me in Queen Anne for $60 - plus tax and "convenience" fees, making it a total of $75.

    I've slept in better hostels, and for $75, I certainly should have. While the room was clean and antique-like (I don't have a problem with it being old), it certainly didn't warrant the pricetag.

    -No parking.
    -Wireless that didn't work and kept kicking you off.
    -Cable TV that didn't work and kept resetting.
    -Hot Water - if you have time to wait 20 minutes for it to heat up, you'll get a hot shower. If you don't, you're stuck in the cold.

    While the location is near Pike Place and downtown Seattle, I'll repeat - save your money and go to a hostel.

    I really liked the room I had. I felt like a studio apt converted into a hotel room. Very comfy, affordable, and seemingly clean. It's super close to the space needle, if that is something you want, and it's just a block or so away from Easy Street Records, in case that is something you want.
    Downtown is not right out of the front door, but it's just a little hike.
    The problem I had with this place, and most of Seattle for that matter, is the parking. Boy oh boy I need to learn a thing or two, because I was getting raped on lot fees everytime I drove my car anywhere. Good luck with that.

    The Inn at Queen Anne was our official guest house. When i lived in Seattle my friends and family would always stay here. The rooms were very reasonably priced, clean, and the staff always made them feel like they were at home.  It was nice that our guests could have their own comfortable space while in town. Plus they were close to all the best things in Seattle.

    this hotel feels like a boarding house, its noisy, the internet doesnt work, and the windows are filthy. I had read the reviews and thought ppl were exaggerating or being too picky but boy was I wrong.  the windows were covered with dirt and the front desk employee told me they would clean them and wrote it down, that never happened. I would have done it but it required a ladder to clean from the outside. The maids would come in the morning and make a racket every morning, hauling all their supplies and putting them along the hallway, yelling back n forth to each other and talking, going up and down the stairs thumping away like nothing, Also, you cant fully close the curtain because the a/c unit is behind it, so all this light comes in. The internet connection is horrible so everyone sits outside by the office to get a signal, how ridiculous. the location is really good and its cheaply priced compared to other places in the area, and i guess thats how they get away with having ppl stay there.

    This hotel was run down, has "long term" residents, and homeless people sitting on the lawn as you walk in.  A little hesitant, we still checked in. The carpets has holes, there was holes in the walls. I like "charm" but this was FAR from charming. You could hear people talking through the walls and hear everything outside. We went to check out and asked for our money back. They declined. We ended up at the Marriott on the Water for 30 dollars less!!!!! Don't even check in.

    Staying here for 3 nights.  Awesome welcoming at front desk by a gentleman who was very sweet.  Convenient as it is one block away from space needle and eatery very close. Has kitchenette but not used.  Large closet space.  The only downside was the bathroom tub was was slowly chipping away although no chips while showering.  For the price you pay its pretty good.  Just keeping in mind that you could possibly hear the house cleaners clean around 9ish.

    the good.  
    great price for downtown seattle.  very homey with window ac and nostalgic steam radiator heater.  large closet, kitchenette with dishes, sink, real dishes, pot and pan, gas stove, refer and microwave, small dresser and table and chairs.  small room with queen bed.  washer and dryer on site.  lobby coffee is pretty damn good.

    the bad.
    rooms are small but not unbearable.  motel 6 quality queen bed, they do not offer kings (cuz the rooms are small).  wifi reception is weak and their fax machine unreliable.  water pressure completely died in the middle of a shower, the person below us probably turned on their water according to the front desk.  this water problem is a deal breaker and  if we continue to have this problem we may not stay here again.

    the bad aint all that bad.  this is our third stay here and we will definitely come back.  we highly recommend the Inn at Queen Anne.

    note:  if you dont mind paying $30 to $40 more, a sister hotel, on the next block, the Marqueen offers, valet parking, a lounge, onsite massage, larger rooms and king beds and a bit more luxury..

    I really enjoyed staying here, but it's definitely the type of place meant for people who are more low maintenance.  Unlike fancier hotels that I've experienced, my room came equipped with a stove, cookware, fridge, a microwave, and free wireless internet.   As a bonus, it wasn't booby-trapped with overpriced booze and candy.  The best word to describe this hotel is "sensible".

    It's in a great location, close to tons of restaurants and bus lines.  The staff is friendly and there's free coffee in the lobby.  The worst thing I could say about my room is that the decor was somewhat lacking, but the quality of hotel room furniture is low on my list of priorities.

    My friend and I were in town for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon, so our primary concern (after price) was proximity to the race start. The Queen Anne couldn't have been more convenient! Our room was comfortable, albeit noisy, and we were pleased by the upgrade to a slightly bigger room that included a kitchenette, though we discovered the hard way that the fridge wasn't plugged in. The bathroom was small but functional, though the shower head was a bit low for us tall girls. On the whole, the Queen Anne was a great value for our money, and I would stay here again if I were in town for the same race or an event at the Seattle Center.

    Location, Location, Location!  This place has it.  It's right in the Seattle Center neighborhood (close to Space Needle, EMP, Key Arena - basically everything you'd need in trendy Queen Anne). Restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance.  Compared to the surrounding properties, it's definitely more affordable.  Location and price were the two things I was looking for during this trip for a family wedding in Queen Anne.

    The building is just adorable, and I love the little courtyard.   The rooms are not modern at all - if you're looking for updated rooms, its unlikely that you'll be satisfied here.  The builiding used to be small apartments that were converted into hotel rooms; you do have an actual closet and an actual kitchen area, but its all very vintage feeling.  

    My major complaints were that there were no outlets in the bathroom and no shelving or counters in the bathroom to put makeup, toothbrushes, etc.  There were also no outlets near any mirrors in the room, which made using my styling tools a bit difficult.  It was also very loud outside (our room faced the alley in the back, and it was garbage day. Major sad face), but the noise isn't really something the hotel can control.   There is parking (for a fee), but its a little off-site, and isn't secured.  This wasn't a huge deal to me, but might be for you.

    Despite the minor complaints, the bed was comfy, the hotel had major character, the staff were awesome and I will definitely stay there again because of the location and value!

    I really want to like this hotel and it did have many positives but the negatives beat them out.

    On the good side:

    The location is wonderful.  All of the best of Seattle is walking distance including the monorail or the  to get you to and from the airport.  No need for a car when you stay here.   Seattle Center is right across the street and we could actually see the Space Needle from our bedroom window.

    Courteous staff, free coffee in the lobby, book swapping in the lobby as well.  Beautiful little garden to sit in between the two buildings.  Local food is amazing (Try Mecca Cafe for breakfast!).

    The place was built in 1929 and has the charm of a building that age.  Cute little nooks to put your stuff, vintage bathroom fixtures, etc.  In our suite we had a mini kitchen with pretty much everything you need except NO coffee maker (?!?)

    Now here is the bad:

    The beds we had in our suite were horrible.  There were three of us so I booked the suite that had a queen size bed and a pull out sofabed.  The sofa bed was not even useable and my cousin ended up sleeping on the floor for 3 nights.  Our bed had a broken spindle that wacked the wall each time someone moved so we unscrewed it and left it on the floor.  The mattress was so saggy that I kept rolling to the center of the bed.  They knew we had 3 people and they did not even set up the sofabed for us, we had to figure that one out on our own and set it up.  Just to pull it apart and put the mattress on the floor anyway, what a mess. I have never been so happy to sleep on my own bed as when I came home yesterday.

    The chair in our room must be about 50 years old and just about would dump you on the floor when you sat on it and was pretty impossible to get out of.

    They could only give us one key.  We all had different things planned so we had to work out a plan to be able to toss the key out the window to whoever came home late and that meant the person in the room had to stay awake to get their call.  That kinda sucked.

    I would love to stay here again, but ONLY if they replaced their beds.

    It has been three months since my visit to The Inn at Queen Anne, and I am still angry. This was the worst of any inn, hotel, or motel that I have ever visited, and I am a Motel 6 kind of gal. This was also the most expensive hotel that I have ever visited, and I am so mad that I spent nearly $100 over my usual lodging budget.

    I was in a friend's wedding, so I wanted to stay somewhere a little nicer to make my weekend in Seattle memorable. This Inn looked quaint and it was close to the wedding venue, so I decided to splurge.

    Big mistake. When I found the location, I had no idea where to park my car. There was no sign indicating a parking lot or even a temporary location for check-in. Since it was late at night (after the wedding), I did manage to find a temporary place on the street, but I was dismayed to find that I had to pay another $15 to park my car in a lot across the street. I was also dismayed to find out that I was on the third floor, and there were no elevators. Had I known either of these things, I would not have booked the room.

    The parking spaces for the inn were a single row of spaces, set on the diagonal, with about a half a car's length between the end a standard car and a brick wall. Also, it was only open on one side, meaning that I had to drive about thirty feet  through a very small opening. Then I had to do it in reverse when I left. In a rental car. It was harrowing.

    My feet were so sore after dancing all night, but I still had to cross the street and climb the stairs with my bags. I was not happy .  I was also sad to see that the quaint inn promised by the website was merely an outdated, tacky, old hotel. The furnishings were merely old, not antique, and the "art" on the walls were framed prints of the variety one would find in a downscale retirement home. The carpets were threadbare, and the whole place was too cold and smelled slightly stale.

    I opened the door to find the most unappealing looking room I believe I have ever seen. The bed was made with a thin, 70's era coverlet. The pillows looked like they were stolen from a budget airline. And the kitchenette that was promised- think of a child's play kitchen and you just about have the picture.

    The mattress was the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on. I can only guess that they were purchased from a Civil War supplies garage sale. The pillows were flat and not much wider than my head. It was one of the most miserable nights' sleep that I have ever experienced.

    The shower head came up to about the middle of my back and the water pressure was not much more than baby drool. Washing my hair was so challenging that I decide to abandon the shower and try a bath instead. However, the tub was also Lilliputian-sized, and, though I managed to clean myself, it was very uncomfortable. At 5'10", I am tall, but I am certainly not a giant.

    The only nice thing that I can say is that the staff was very nice and professional, which was somehow disorienting, like having a butler for a double-wide mobile home.

    As you can imagine, I shall not return.

    My friend and I found a Groupon deal for the Inn at Queen Anne and purchased it for our recent trip to Seattle.   With taxes, we paid about $75 a night which was well worth it compared to the rates that we were seeing at other hotels in Seattle.

    First it should be known that the Inn at Queen Anne is very old.  There are no elevators and the room keys are actually real keys - not key cards like most hotels these days.  It is definitely not a luxury hotel but it was clean, quiet and has a good location near the Space Needle, Key Arena, the Science Center and several other points of interest.  A nice feature is that each room has a kitchen.  While we didn't need the full kitchen for our short stay, having a refrigerator was a plus and we definitely used that.

    I think people often forget that you get what you pay for.  For the price we paid, the Inn at Queen Anne more then met our expectations.  If you're just looking for a clean, reasonably priced place to sleep at night then the Inn at Queen Anne might be a good fit for you.

    I give them only one star because I am so pissed off by the rude customer service. ( The guy, comparatively shorter, in the front desk). I booked the room from Priceline for Sunday ~ Friday. And we got 3 people in checking in. The guy told me that they only had 2 twin bed room available, and I asked him when there would be 1 twin+1 queen room available. He told me Wednesday and Thursday would have that room. Then I said, fine, could you do that upgrade confirmation for me please, and he agreed. I saw him doing sth on the computer. And at Tuesday night, I went to the front desk to double check for the upgrades. (Yes, at that night, it was him again.) And he refused to admit that he had done that promise to me! He said he had already sold out the 1 twin+1 queen during past two days!!!! And when I tried to communicate with him. He just said so rudely that he would not go on the conversation with me!!!!

    And the AC was super noisy!  Rooms are super old!

    I really liked this hotel, but as the other reviews say, it's a no-frills hotel.  Don't expect any of the fancy, new-hotel type amenities.  The building is old and rickety. They have real keys, not card locks, and you have to ask the desk for  a hair dryer if you need on.

    However, the staff is AMAZINGLY nice! And there is a kitchenette and free coffee in the lobby. And is close to the Space Needle and the exhibition center. It's a great location and for $80 a night, in Seattle, it's pretty decent!

    I can honestly say this was the cruelest joke ever played on me. At 169 a night before taxes and fees, my poor husband and I got stuck in a room with two child size beds. I thought it was two queens when I booked, I didn't even know twin beds were possible. The beds were literally hard brick rocks. I may have been sleeping on a box spring, I wouldn't know the difference.  They don't even line the beds, there is one single white sheet on the mattress but the box spring is completely exposed. It's worse than a motel. I don't even know how it is still in business.

    The water pressure was very low, so washing your hair is difficult. They provide you with a sink, but ours had rust coming out of it, so it defeats the purpose of having drinking water.

    There are no electric outlets in certain rooms so you have to unplug the TV to iron a shirt or use electronics of any kind. I'm so sad about this place. I asked for a refund because I genuinely felt taken advantage of and they did not give one. Also, there is a 15 dollar charge for parking.

    TLDR: Avoid. My family was left stranded from Virginia due to their incoherent and negligible staff, what you see listed is not the price and the place is old.

    This is my second time writing this review, I hope it isn't "filtered" again.

    Horrible experience. Previously I stayed at a certain other hotel by the former Seattle Pi location. This time my family wanted to come to Seattle so we stayed here. From the start the guys at the desk were VERY snooty.

    They have hidden fees. Due to their hidden fees basically we were without a hotel because we put an exact amount on our credit card, the amount we were told over the phone. The guys at the desk did not care. I was under the impression that they never wanted us to stay here either.

    As soon as we opened the door no one said anything as if we were stragglers off the sidewalk (the lobby is very small) . After we started the paperwork no one bothered to ask about our luggage. All of this was done in a timely manner elsewhere. When we asked about the locations of certain places to eat they became very sarcastic and condescending. When we did not have enough on the card they did not bother help us, after explaining it was not the price we were told on the phone and we were from Virginia. For example right after this hotel we went to another, which also had fees but TOLD US. They also had another payment method which worked out and very nice staff. Here we got the vibe that even if there were other options, we would not be told about them.

    Looking back I think I could have disputed this with printouts but overall this place is just deceitful and they just don't care. There are plenty of other hotels in Seattle without hidden fees or with staff that will actually care if you have no place to stay for 7 days with children despite it being their fault to begin with.

    Overall we were glad we did not stay here. The insides were very old looking once i saw it in person and I felt like the price was far too much judging from the lobby alone. When you walk it sounds like you're on that hollow wood type surface so I can only imagine having people above me.

    Like i said this got "filtered" before so if you need other recommendations send me a message but after my experience here, with my family being nearly homeless I wouldn't even walk my dog along the block of this place.

    Great location. Walking distance to downtown.

    Booked a 2 bed, got 1. Ok, me and my friends can deal with it.

    Nice and friendly staff, front desk.

    In the end, loaded up with a fraudulent charge on my bank account. Confused front desk just told me to call their parent company. Parent company told me to "take it up with my bank and contest the charges".

    Never again.

    Parking situation is horrendous; only a few spots behind a building across the street. Parking area had shattered glass. Bathroom door didn't close. Had a stove that didn't work, so what's the purpose. Room fan was noisy as heck all night. The decor kind of reminds me of that movie Barton Fink. Night time front desk people are rude, hostile, and kind of creepy. There's a hotel on the other side of the Seattle Center that is just a little more pricey, but well worth it. This is one of the worst hotel experiences I've had, and I stayed in cheaper hotels.

    If possible I would give 0 stars. Yes it is cheap. Yes it is next the the space needle. But the place literally smells like it is rotting from the inside out. The rooms are dingy and when I woke up the one morning I was there my room didn't have enough water pressure for me to take a shower. When I said something to the girl at the desk, she had nothing to say except "wait until the person below you is done". I could see that this wasn't the first time she'd heard this, and from my experience working in customer service it was an obvious awkward kiss off since she knew it was wrong, but that nothing would ever be done to remedy the situation. The problem here (aside from the fact that I was only on the 3rd floor!!!), is that this must happen every day because everybody has to get out of there by a certain point. Oh, and I don't have all day to wait to take a shower. I'm obviously in town for a reason and since I'm staying at this dump, that reason isn't to hang out in my muggy, somehow too hot in February, stink hole of a room.

    Just pay a few extra bucks and stay some place reputable and where the staff doesn't have to lie and cringe at customers when they question the awful condition of their hotel.

    Worst hotel experience I've ever had.  Room had no sound insulation to the outside street noise.  I might as well have been laying on the street as the noise level would have been about the same.  Internet service would drop randomly about every 5 minutes and I'd have to re-login every time.  It was also so slow that even the Goggle home page had trouble loading.  My room was right next to the doorway to the second floor which people used all night.  The toilet flushed about every 15 minutes on its own and was the LOUD old fashioned kind.  People were talking in the hallway till about midnight.  I called the front desk to see if they could help with any of these issues and was told that she couldn't leave the desk so I was on my own.  All this for only $250/night.  Ran out the next morning as fast as I could to another hotel.  STAY AWAY!

    How we arrived to the hotel:
    -We arrived at the Seattle International Airport and took the light-rail to Westlake Station for $2.75 where we then took an $8 taxi ride to the hotel.  

    We arrived around 9:30pm and the light-rail was busy with people and had a good security presence, would definitely recommend.

    Hotel Pros:
    -Friendly staff
    -Small fridge in room with stove and sink (which we didn't use)
    -Air conditioning (window unit)
    -Big walk-in closet
    -Free coffee in lobby

    Hotel Cons:
    -Wifi didn't work
    -Small bathroom with no counter space
    -Long hair found on bath towel
    -Walk-in closet could have been smaller to make the room bigger.
    -No elevator

    Well deserved rating for the Inn at Queen Ann.

    First and foremost to the people "shopping" for hotels and use Yelp as research, please understand, if you know you don't want lush comfort. I mean down comforter, blow dryer, bells and whistles, then I recommend Inn at Queen Ann. My boyfriend and I paid literally less then $80 a night (through Priceline) except NYE to stay here for five nights and it was worth every single penny.

    One, we were fortunate to get a view of the Space Needle. Which resulted in us not freezing our butts off NYE and watching the fireworks from our room. Hot water for shower time. Cable TV, where my bf and I would use our relax time to catch up on shows we don't get to watch at home. The kitchenette was useful for the night we went to the store and brought dinner home to eat. Or to store our water and other drinks in. Even their free coffee in the lobby was good, where I didn't need to cream or sugar it at all. And the service is great here. The front desk is nice and informative. Plus it was in the perfect location to everywhere we wanted to go with our CityPass.

    Honestly, my only gripe about the Inn was not the Inn's fault entirely. Because of its age, the rooms features window AC units which allow outside noise to filter into the room. Needless to say, I was pretty restless those five nights I was there because I had the 'pleasure' of listening to drunks fight, sing, or just be drunk. Whatever though, I was just more than happy with our stay and how close we were to everything!

    We got a coupon deal for this hotel and it was a great deal for the location and time that we visited Seattle. This is quite old, but besides that it was a good spot to lay our head for a few hours in between sight seeing. It seemed to me to be an old apartment building that was turned into a boutique hotel. There was a full kitchen inside, and the fridge came in handy. The room definitely needs updating, but for the price, I would definitely stay here again. They also do not have an elevator, so be prepared.

    First of all we paid $250 for one night. Needless to say it was highly disappointing. I did not expect state of the art but for this price, it was less than we expected or even thought possible. Here is what we encountered:
    1. The room and hallway should smell clean. Upon check in, we were sent upstairs (with no elevator). Our door was right next to the entry to the stairwell. The hallway smelled like strong incense that took your breath away because not breathing was way better than that smell. Then upon opening our room door it smelled like a senior center, full of mold and musk.
    2. Room size - it was the tiniest room. Once our luggage was inside, we pondered where we could possibly sit. There is absolutely NO extra space.
    3. NO PARKING!!! Wait I take that back, for $20 you can park down the street in a sketchy lot or you can park in a garage for $15 up the block and around the corner.
    4. Back to the room...the bathroom was tiny, dirty and dark. It was sketchy just using the toilet. The lack of light was a plus because you couldn't see how dirty the bathroom probably was. They need to drop some bucks and get new showers.
    4. Hospitality- the gal checking us in acted like we were unwanted guests in her personal house. When I asked A LOT of questions about the parking and tried to talk about my prior call regarding the parking, I was quickly dismissed and treated like the idiot tourist I should know I am.
    There were some pluses to this place, definitely not $250 worth of pluses but I like to look on the bright side:
    1. Location, location, location- we were smack dab in the middle of hipster, USA. It was an interesting place to people watch and there were very close touristy activities available.
    I guess that was it for the good. I had better intentions...sorry.
    In short, don't waste your money. Stay anywhere else and use the money you saved to take a taxi to this area because that was the coolest thing from this very expensive lesson.

    What a dump. Threadbare carpets, crappy beds, horrible scratchy linens. There is no excuse for not replacing the nasty smelly carpets. Carpeting is cheap! This place was gross inconvenient not secure. Awful.

    I would not recommend the Inn at Queen Anne to anyone looking for a nice hotel.
    First and foremost they claim to have WiFI. This is absolutely false advertising! Our wifi did not work and I spoke with several other guests staying at this hotel and they had the same issue. The man in front of me upon checkout was twice as dissatisfied as I was. If you have any business to do during your stay at this hotel, please be advised there claim of free wifi is false. Our room was old and run down and our kitchenette contained a stove that did not function and refrigerator that was beyond loud throughout the night. The bathroom was sub par and the mattress and sheets old as well.  I usually only rate places that earn my 5 star approval, but this place was bad enough to warrant a warning to future hotel guests. Not much nicer than a motel 6 all in all.

    We stayed for four nights and really liked it. Yea, it's an older building, but we really like places of this vintage, especially from the 1920's. Very clean, front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful, coffee always on, front lobby PC worked perfectly for printing boarding passes, room was just right. We took public transportation the whole trip, so I can't speak to any parking issues. Charming and totally functional. Wi-Fi was slow, but we didn't come to Seattle to sit on iPads in our hotel room. We really enjoyed staying here and will again in future.

    Pros: location, friendly staff, onsite laundry facility.

    Cons: the windows won't stay open. The curtains are thick and cover the AC unit, so you can't sleep with the curtains closed or you'll wake up to an 85 degree room. There is a hot water pipe right next to the toilet that is extremely hot to the touch. That means you have to sit sideways on the toilet. Fun stuff. The bed is horribly uncomfortable and the ceiling fan is worthless. Parking is $20 per night.

    Would have been 2 stars if not for the location and staff. I can't imagine we would stay here again.

    I see a lot of bad reviews for Inn at Queen Anne, but most of them are picking on small, petty issues:

    "Ooh, the paint is sloppy"
    "the building is old"
    and my favorite: "It wasn't noisy, but it LOOKED like it could be noisy".

    My colleague and I were in town for a conference downtown. We didn't want to be directly downtown and wanted to be close to some local bars and restaurants and this seemed to be the perfect spot. This was one of the cheapest places to stay in the area. The price was visible upfront and there were no "hidden fees" or extra chargers afterwards.

    We weren't looking for a "five-star, world-renowned, OMG look at this crystal glassware" kind of place. We were looking for a cheap place to crash a few nights while in town and expected the quality of the place to match the price. We weren't looking for any special amenities other than a bed, a shower, and wi-fi, but I was very impressed with the room.

    We got a single room with two beds and a walk-in closet. A small table and a TV were included in the main room. The kitchenette was complete with a mini-fridge, microwave, sink, stove/oven, cookware, and dishes. The bathroom was a decent size (bigger than my apartment's bathroom) and had a claw-foot tub with shower. In the three days we were there, neither of us had trouble with the water pressure or temperature. Everything worked perfectly well.

    We morphed the small table into a work station so we could continue working while in Seattle. The wi-fi worked perfectly fine and we both used it quite a lot each day.

    Everything in the room worked fine and there were no issues at all.

    Yes, the place looked old. Yes, the paint around the windows and trim was sloppy. No, it did not smell. No, it was not noisy.

    The outside had a few small patio/seating areas which were nice and peaceful. Great place to go and drink your morning coffee and wake up.

    Location: excellent. We were within walking distance to some great local bars, restaurants, and a grocery store. The inn sits at the corner of the park-type area that houses the Space Needle, Key Arena, and every other touristy thing Seattle has to offer, if that's your sort of thing.

    We were only 2 miles away from Downtown, so chose to walk to our conference each day. The walk took no time at all and you got to see and stop at some great places along the way. We cut through Belltown the first time and found it to be a great place to hangout at the end of the day. It was about a mile away from the inn, so it made a great place to grab a few beers and dinner before heading back to Queen Anne to crash for the night.

    Overall, this place was better than I expected and was well worth it. I'd highly consider staying again if I'm ever back in Seattle.

    My biggest problem with the place? The rooms did not have a coffee maker. The place only had a central coffee maker in the main lobby (which was always full of freshly made coffee), but that was never a problem, because I was usually on my way to sit outside and drink a coffee anyway, so I guess it was more of a convenience than a problem.

    First, the staff are super friendly. Second, let's talk about the building.....super old, in good repair, very clean.

    The super annoying stuff: THIS HOTEL DOES NOT HAVE WI-FI, they say they do, but they absolutely do not have it in the rooms at the end of the building and even if you have a room that has Wi-Fi, its slow, with low connectivity....The rooms are not set up for any type of business activities, even in the lowest sense of the term. Each room MIGHT have one outlet with 3 prong ports (like for a laptop), or you can unplug the fridge and take the 3 prong from there.

    I give this place 3 stars because it was much better than the previous inn my husband and I stayed at which was lucky they got 2 stars.

    This place was an escape and we stayed for 3 days. It was affordable/cheaper than the other place that was subpar. The room had a walk-in closet with full size stand up ironing board and high quality iron for my work clothes, a small kitchen with gas stove and fully stocked with utensils and dish-ware.

    For an older building it was wise to have an A/C unit in the window. But like many older buildings it smelled of mildew. The staff seemed was okay not the greatest but I feel like they were all in high school. It's an alright place for a short stay.

    interesting experience. It is a cute little place, old fashioned for sure. its like a little studio apartment room. the room I stayed in had two beds, a huge closet and a little kitchenette( which included pans utensils and bowls cups ect. which was neat)
    the rooms are heated with radiators which are old. the first room we stayed in would not heat up, the man at the front desk was very nice and came and checked on the system, we still wanted to move to anther room and was. the new room didn't really heat up either, better then the first but it was very chilly, i wouldn't want to stay in the winter. the shower was also slightly problematic, as it squirted water all over the place and we had to put a towel over it to use it which out soaking the whole bathroom.
    the staff was very nice and if the room had warmed up more i wouldn't have been bothered as much. it is an old place and an old building with old problems.

    Some of these reviews are harsh! Our experience was nothing like any of these bad reviews, we actually had a great experience! I suppose it depends on what you're looking for and if you're looking for the Ritz Carlton at this price, well then, you need to get smart!!

    This is an old hotel which we assume was converted from apartments. IT'S AN OLD HOTEL!! The walls have cracks, the tubs are painted, the floors creak, and the amenities list is very short! We just needed somewhere to lay our head and the price was right!

    When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who seemed genuinely pleased we had chosen the Inn at Queen Anne for the night. He was in a suit and tie, very professional and very kind. He explained the necessity for the credit card incidental deposit, nothing new there, most hotels require that. I don't know of any hotel near the airport that lets you check in without a credit card and none that I've been to in downtown Seattle either. He directed us to our room, asked if we needed luggage assistance and gave us a little further info for locking and unlocking our doors (old school keys!!!).

    We had two rooms and both were nearly identical on opposite sides of the hall. They were clean, smelled nice and are tastefully decorated. Yes, they are old rooms! There's probably 20 coats of paint on the walls, the kitchenettes have ancient gas appliances, there are cracks everywhere and the paint is peeling in some places. But talk about charm!! The door handles are glass, the walls are textured, there's little "alcoves" for the phone and the closets are big enough for a crib (not that we needed it)! They are very spacious rooms with plenty of room to move around without being crowded. The bed was very comfortable and there are extra pillows provided in the closet. We were on the street side and yet it was still very quiet in our room - so quiet we slept in until 10:00!!

    This is NOT a luxury hotel and I won't review it like one! This is an old hotel in a decent quiet neighborhood in an amazing location. If it had coffee makers it might get a 5 rating from me!!

    I really enjoyed my stay here. This is a quaint Victorian style hotel. It is by far not fancy and does not have all the added ammenities that a 4/5 star hotel would have. Let's face it people you get what you pay for so don't be picky. I got a great deal through Travelocity for $75 a night. I prefer to spend my money on Tours and sight seeing opposed to lodging. I was really pleased with the Front desk staff (all of them) and also our housekeeping lady. She went above and beyond to make sure she met our needs and I wish I would have asked her name so I could tell management about her stellar service. There are quaint fixtures all over the building. The rooms have a kitchenette which are a deal breaker for me. The rooms also have a good size flat screen TV with movie channels. The best part of this place is how centrally close it is to everything.  I could see the space needle out my window. It was walking distance to all the activities we wanted to do. Also, we walked down to the monorail and it took us down town. There are various restaurants surrounding this Hotel.  Oh and last but not least, the staff printed maps for me and also gave me a discount code for Uber Transportation which I got my first trip free. Thank you for a great stay.

    This is a charming and quaint establishment.   The rooms are clean and well kept and the staff is very friendly.  It is well located in the heart of downtown Seattle, within walking distance of the pier, and the science center.    It has a court yard were you can sit and relax and have a drink. The coffee,  found in the lobby, is good.  Our room had a cute little gas stove in it and had I Brought a  stovetop espresso maker I could have made coffee in the room.  My only complaint is that this area of town is noisy and I am a light sleeper her. My partner slept through without any problems.      The Wi-Fi is free, but probably because the building is old and has lots of metal in the walls, it tends to be spotty.

    Friendliest and most helpful hotel desk staff I have encountered.  There is a beautiful little courtyard where one can drink coffee, snack or read (if weather cooperates).  Seattle Center with its many museums, plus the Space Needle, are kitty-corner, and we could walk downtown to Pike Place Market  in 25 minutes.

    Last minute booking on our way to Seattle. Hotel room is clean as well as the bathroom and walk in closet. It's a walking distance to the space needle and a grocery store. I love the fully equipped kitchenette and it has an amazing view of the space needle. The only downside is the limited hotel parking and over priced parking fee!!!!

    Wow...did I stay at the same place as these other reviewers??? OK...the place is old but with that comes a shitload of character.  I was there for business and was given the choice of a Travel Lodge or Queen Anne. I went with the place with character and wasn't disappointed.  

    Yes...the building is old but it's centrally located and very cheap (my room was $100).  The room had obviously been remodeled recently. Decent artwork, new paint, bed was fine (and clean).  In fact, although this place was old (Moses kind of old) it was very clean.  

    The bathroom had very old school tile and fixtures.  The bathtub handles were close to falling off but they worked (and were very cool).  The kitchenette was awesome.  You get a fridge, a tiny gas stove/oven and a tiny sink with tons of cabinet storage.  The room also comes with a giant walk in closet which is pretty useless but my guess is this was once a functional studio apartment.  

    The cons include thin doors, some street noise (nothing that keeps you awake) and people walking down the hallway until about midnight.  Frankly, this is kind of a sketchy part of town but its downtown Seattle so get over it.  It was a little odd when some random chick knocked on my door at 1 am but after deciding I wasn't interested in whatever she was selling I just ignored it.

    This place is cheap, clean, conveniently located and has tons of unique character (including a wonderful courtyard).  It has a David Lynch kind of vibe but that just adds to the character in my book.

    I actually really like this place.   The room was very cute and the place is charming.   Yes it's old and shows it's age, but I think that adds to the charm.   It is very clean and the room smelled like freshly washed linens when we walked in.   The bathroom smells clean and sanitary.   The beds are firm but comfortable and plenty of pillows.  

    The lady evening front desk person was not very friendly, but maybe she was having a bad day.  The male morning front desk person was extremely helpful and very nice.  

    No coffee maker in your room.  But there is coffee in the lobby.  

    The location is north of down town.  Not a bad drive but it would be a serious walk.    You can see the space needle from the hotel.  I like that it's out of the way a bit, but still close.
