    Marco! Polo! Great place to take a hooker and freebase cocaine all night. A little tip...bring your own sheets.

    Decor is 70's aged to perfection with a little water damage, cocaine, whores, and weeklong bender history thrown in.  I really didn't mind it, but my girlfriend refused to take a shower there and wouldn't walk on the carpet without socks.  It loses two stars because the towel provided was the size of a hand towel, sheets weren't bad.   Can't really beat $85 for the suite on a Saturday Night in Seattle though.

    Very cheap and not as much road noise as you might imagine. Our room was clean and aired out. Nothing fancy but the shower was hot and had decent water pressure. Towels were thin but functional, pretty much the story of the whole place. Nice manager, and the place was sold out on a Saturday night.

    Comfortable rooms, easy access off Aurora/Hwy 99, decent prices, and plentiful parking. The rooms featured two beds, a TV, sink, stove and microwave. Close proximity to downtown Seattle is also a plus. Both check-in and check-out were quick and painless.

    There is also a "community" laundry room hidden in the corner. We didn't use it, but it is nice to know it's there - although you do have to pay to use it - I believe it's $1.50 for the washer and $1.50 for the dryer (I could be wrong though); bring your own laundry soap or you'll have to buy it at the front desk.

    A Pepsi machine is located near the entrance to the front desk office - also a nice perk. No snack machines, though.

    All in all, a nice place to stay for the price.

    Agree that it's a "get what you pay for" place, although location is solid and you do get free wifi.

    Clean, smelled like the 1970s, big room, motel style layout, a modest view of downtown Seattle and Mt. Rainier (big points for that, nothing like waking up early for a flight and seeing my favorite Washington state  lump of rocks and ice).

    Got in super late at night, like 2:30am, and instead of a late check in charge with pleasant service, we got no charge and rude service - fine by me!  "There should be a penalty for checking in so late," says the baldheaded guy from behind the camera that points directly in your face as you converse.  The clever businessman running this hotel has apparently decided to make this "penalty" a nonmonetary one.  

    I think he thought I was the only one staying in the room, so I had to sneak my fiancee in all covertly.  

    Only had to pay $140 for 2 nights - good deal, especially in this area.  

    All the comments about freebasing on coke, cheap hookers, etc are pretty much spot on.  

    Just make sure you ask for the room above the office.

    The cliche "you get what you pay for applies here." We paid only $65 on a Saturday night. It was conveniently located for us to explore the North neighborhoods.

    The room smelled like the Fremont troll took a dump and left it for a few weeks. We slept with the windows open.

    Make no mistake: this is not a fancy hotel. But if you're looking for a fancy hotel, you're probably not looking at Marco Polo. What I was looking for was clean, honest, and affordable, and this motel covers them all. Not only that, the man at the desk (Jonathan) was over-the-top friendly, helpful, and informative.

    The only thing keeping Marco Polo from five stars was trouble with the wifi. Never got it to work. But I was very grateful for such a cozy place after a long day of travel. Highly recommended for travelers on a budget.

    Sure, the place could use new wallpaper and a fresh coat of paint. If you cared about that sort of thing, you wouldn't be looking for the cheapest hotel in the area. This place  is about a 10-minute walk or a two-minute drive from Fremont and Wallingford, and maybe a 10-minute drive from downtown. It is perfectly serviceable for stashing your stuff, exploring the city and stumbling back in at an hour obscene enough to make you grateful that check-out isn't until noon. And, hey, free wifi!

    This was my first and will be my LAST time staying at a motel.  Our flight to Seattle had been delayed so we arrived a little later than expected and we weren't able to check-in to our guesthouse on time.  Our last resort was to stay at a cheap motel that takes late check-ins (past 1am).  We googled a bunch of places and decided on Marco Polo since it wasn't too far and it was well.. cheap of course.  

    When we arrived there, it didn't look as bad as it did in the pics.  But it definitely had like a scary horror flick vibe.  It was almost 2am and thankfully the guy let us check in.  I think we had woken up since he was rubbing his eyes and seemed a bit groggy lol.  Well my fiancé and I shared one room and his 2 friends shared another room.  

    The rooms had a funky smell to it but it was bearable.  Although it was clean... I just couldn't help but think about how many prostitutes and drug dealers must have stayed at this place *shivers*  

    I was hesitant to take a shower but since I felt yucky from the plane, I just borrowed our friend's rubber slippers.  I guess you get what you pay for!  Thank goodness it was just for night! *phew*

    Nothing to gripe about here. Stayed here for two weeks in between apartments. Rooms are dated, but clean. Hot water works, no bugs, WiFi, super easy walk/bus ride to most of North Seattle and Downtown.

    The staff keep the place clear of druggies/prostitutes that used to plague the Aurora Ave hotels. Actually, they kindly asked us to let housekeeping in one day per week to make sure nothing illegal was going on and we didn't trash the room. Otherwise they were quite happy just to exchange towels on a daily basis.

    The cable is sub-par, but I am not paying cheap prices for good cable.

    And yes, Kurt Cobain shot dope here in his days around here...room 227 in the corner to be precise.

    Pluses: The room was clean, albeit sparsely furnished, and comfortable.

    Negatives: The asian group that runs the place are complete assholes. Upon checkout, I was told I had to.get out immediately or be charged an additional day. I told him my ride was on his way, he said if hes not here Im charging you for the.room whether you stay in it or not. Ergo, complete assholes.

    Recommend you look around before staying here. There are.decent clean hotels that.dont charge $75 a night and dont boot you in the ass on the way out.

    The one good employee they have is Jonathan, who is all about top notch service.

    Just horrible.  If possible try avoiding the mean old man at the front desk who calls himself the "General Manager" of the run down place but acts as if its a five star hotel.  He is completely unprofessional, rude and should not be working in the hospitality business at all with a poor and bitter attitude like he has.

    Our room look cleaned but when we took a closer look we found dirt, dust and mold throughout the room.  The comforters smelled like the previous renters, fridge was filthy, walls have splatter stains and trash between the wall and head of bed.  It was already late so we stuck it out but slept in our clothes and shoes and used our coats to put over our pillows.  Beds consist of a thin mattress sitting on a piece of plywood and the fridge was filthy.  See pictures.

    On the good side of things the housekeepers are really nice and friendly unlike Jonathan. I'd recommend dishing out the few extra bucks to stay elsewhere.

    While this is no Hilton by any stretch of the means, it definitely served it's purpose. Was looking for room over the Memorial weekend and this is what we found.

    It was in I guess you could say "seedy" area but really during the day it seemed fine. I wasn't sure about the evening as I was usually crashed in my room.

    The guy at the front desk was very nice, kind and helpful. He gave us  room with three beds in it, which was nice, but we only needed one of the beds ( well sometimes we needed the other bed when there wasn't room in the one. I think these beds were probably doubles.

    The shower was kind of small as was the bathroom but that was ok, the water / shower was hot and I what I need to start my day. I could imagine anyone having a bath or anything in there, although it looks like you could.

    The room has a fridge / freezer and microwave, always  a plus in my book that way we can try and save / make food in the room. The tv was fuzzy at best, but didnt' watch much tv. This room is definitely for you if you don't plan on spending time in the room. Otherwise you may want to get one of the more expensive hotels in the downtown area, we didn't want to do that. This perfectly fine. I saw no hookers or crack addicts though. I must have missed out!
