Stayed here two nights, Mon-Weds.  It's my 2nd stay, and I would stay again next visit.  It's a clean, well run hotel, right next to a Safeway ( !! ) and walking distance to the Space Needle, PSC, Monorail, Ride the Ducks, Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum.  The room was clean and very nice, as is the lobby.  The staff is friendly.  It was a nice stay.  Only 3 things that were maybe not perfect.  They show a photo of a room with a view of the Space Needle.  I requested that room, and I had booked plenty in advance and it was a Monday.  They said they would try, but no guarantee.  I was put at the opposite side facing the other direction.  Oh well, not the end of the world.  The 2nd is the elevator.  It's pretty slow and you sit there for awhile.  I just took the stairs to the 4th floor instead.  The 3rd is the parking fee of $15 a night.  Parking in Seattle really sucks, but I just parked on the street a few blocks down.  I'll stay here again.

Decent hotel in a hip part of Seattle. Within walking distance to three supermarkets, the Experience Music Project and Key Arena and a bunch of cool restaurants and coffee bars. Rooms are small without a lot of character, but kitchenette with mini fridge and microwave are there besides the usual coffee maker. You even get a bag of Orville Redenbacher's popcorn which certainly was welcome and with the fridge I had no problem chilling my beer (which of course, I could pick up at any of the three markets). Gym is open 24/7. You don't even need your key to enter. Just a three station multi gym that's hard to operate and a couple of aerobic machines. Arrowhead water bottles are provided. You also get two in your fridge. Parking is self and 9 bucks a night, but the lot is small and most spots are for compacts. Only 'restaurant' in the plex is a Starbucks but with so many good places within walking distance....who cares? Overall a good deal but definitely not in 4-star range.

The rooms here are designed as termporary housing, with "Kitchenettes" in every room and nightly, weekly and month to month stays.  The rooms can be quite small but the amenities are good.  The staff is friendly and the place is kept clean.  Be cautious of the parking garage everyone that goes in or out scrapes the bottom of their car....some even high-center and get stuck.

I like this part of Seattle and this hotel offered great rates and convienient location (right next to the space needle and a variety of bars and restaurants).  Street parking is difficult, if not impossible, and the hotel charges for parking.  The rooms were clean and comfortable.  Overall a great value, and best of all you can walk directly from the lobby into a Starbucks.

First off, just so you know, this hotel is on a very busy one way street--Queen Anne Ave. Parallel to Queen Anne Ave. is First Ave. N. This street is ALSO a one way street--but in the opposite direction! If you are not used to driving in bigger cities, with tons of pedestrians, beware. Staff was cordial, room was very clean, & the hotel is right by a neat Safeway store that has underground parking! Anyhow, you may want to arrive here a bit early--there is a "5 min. only" loading zone located outside the hotel, but when I got here, there was a car already there! Also, beware of the underground parking garage, it's awful. Spaces are extremely narrow, & you WILL scrape the bottom of your car driving out of it. If you are attending an event at Key Arena, I would recommend this hotel, because GOOD LUCK trying to find a parking space when attending a concert here. If you stay at this hotel, it is about a 3 minute walk. On a very positive note, go to Nielsen's Danish Pastry, located on 2nd Ave. It's about a block away, easily by foot, & they have the most delicious pastries & sweet treats I have ever eaten.

I'm new to Seattle and my midwest-living parents came to visit. Since I have a tiny apt on Capitol Hill, I  found them a place to stay. I checked this place out because of its lower prices and location (lower Queen Anne, cute area close to space needle/downtown).
The hotel itself is bright yellow and very clean on the exterior and interior. The room was nice, and had your average hotel decor with TV/VCR. It also had a kitchenette (fridge/microwave/coffee pot...etc) and a large clean bathroom. No A/C as mentioned in other reviews, but my parents were here during a hot week in July, and didn't feel it got too hot (just opened the window).
There is also a workout room (in good condition), free internet in the lobby, a Starbucks attached to the hotel, and a laundry room. Within a two blocks of the hotel there is a full grocery store, a theater, several coffee shops, several restaurants/bars...etc.

But the best part of this hotel, is the rooftop. Its on the 7th floor, and has a great panoramic view of Seattle. You can see Elliot bay, Downtown, Mt. Rainier (on clear days) the Space Needle, the Olympic Mountains, and Queen Anne. It was quiet up there (as well as in the hotel itself), and very relaxing after going all over the city during the day.

So my parents came, and they loved it. Highly recommended.

Booked two nights at the Inn in late July '08 due to the fact that there were no other vacancies in the area.  Had never stayed here and was worried that the location might make it less than desirable.  Access to tourist areas, etc was a plus.  However, the hotel is on an extremely busy street and the room we received (two queens, fourth floor corner unit facing Dick's Burgers) had no air conditioning.  Usually no big deal but the passing traffic, buses, ambulances with sirens, and kids at night walking around drunk and screaming profanity made me wish I could close the windows and crank up the AC.  My two young kids had a hard time falling asleep and I was woken up several times due to the noise.  Checked out after one night and went and stayed at the Silver Cloud south lake Union which I recommend.

The folks, relatives and friends stayed here for a week over our wedding date and I found the hotel to be a very good value.  Rooms are adequate and quiet and the rooftop view is incredible.  Granted the patio is spartan and utiititarian. They loved it for the value and were satisfied with the hotel and the abounding options in lower Queen Anne.  Look, it's not the W or Fairmont  by any stretch but anyone needs a decent hotel room in a great neighborhood convenient to downtown, then this is an excellent option.

I'm definitely a fan of this hotel. Likely because we had a room with a fantastic view of the space needle. There was a really cute bench seat along the window, and the bed was just comfortable enough. There's a gym downstairs, and it's connected to a Starbucks. This is a very charming hotel, fulfilling all of one's basic needs on a budget. I will absolutely stay there again and request the same room. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming as well!

We stayed here during our 3 nights in Seattle. The rooms do not have AC unless indicated on your reservation. Something that we wish we would have known as the weather was extremely HOT while we were there. Rooms are small but clean. No extra amenities but cheap. Staff was not helpful or friendly when asked about restaurants in walking distance!

A quaint and comfy inn located close to the Seattle Center and walking distance to a very diverse restaurant row. Just note, their single bedroom offers a full size bed. So if you want a bigger sized bed, you might want to get a room with 2 beds and I've seen it in some of their rooms. In addition, ceiling room fans helps if the room is a little warm + a good sized bathrooms for more area to move around.

Just got home from a 4 day stay at the Mediterranean Inn, and must say I had a very pleasant trip. Really loved the window seat and my view of the Space Needle every night. The bed could of been a little more comfortable, but being a king it was very spacious. The biggest problem was that there was no air conditioner and I happened to be there during a heat wave. Having an open-able window helped a lot though.

Simple, clean, comfortable, and affordable. The staff was friendly and efficient. Close to Safeway for cheap eating (room also had frig & microwave) and close to some great Queen Anne restaurants. The Sweet went running in the morning, and he was happy with its accessibility to the waterfront. I wish I'd known about the rooftop beforehand. Our only complaint is that our 4th-floor window view was conveniently located to make eye contact with some guy who appeared to be lying in bed - before we permanently lowered the shades.

A perfectly adequate little hotel. It is nothing fancy, but has everything you need. It has a great rooftop deck too. The location makes this place great! Markets, a theatre, restaurants galore, all within easy walking distance. As well as the Seattle Center. My only qualms are that the elevators are really slow...and the staff could be a tad bit more helpful/friendly. But all in all, a good experience. 3.5 stars...but I'll round it up to 4.

After reading the reviews I had mixed feelings on how this hotel would rate, but once we checked in we were very pleased. We got into town very early and were not able to check in because the room wasn't ready yet but the staff of the front desk was very helpful with our bags and parking so we could explore the city while our room was getting ready. Once inside the room I was very impressed. Everything was very clean and modern. The buildings around had a very old charm which gave you the comfort of a clean room but with that old cozy charm you get being around old brick buildings. The reviews prepared us for the noise. It is a city and there is going to be noise. We brought our own sound machine to give us some of our own white noise and we slept peacefully through the night even with the windows open. The front desk was very helpful through our entire trip at all hours of the day and night. They were friendly and went well beyond their normal call of duty to help us with everything we needed. Even at 4 in the morning they had a smile on their face ready to help us with our requests. One thing I do recommend is that you get a room on the 5th or 6th floor. There is normal car and foot traffic you will here this will make it a little less noisy. Also DO NOT MISS OUT on the view from the roof both day and night!!! It is beautiful!!!

What a great deal.  We decided to try this place after searching yelp reviews.  I definitely agree with most folks who gave the hotel four to five stars.  I found a $99 per/nt deal online and decided to book right away.  We went during a popular time in July and comparatively I think it was the right choice.  We were so close to the bus lines and the roof top made the experience.  The kitchenette was helpful, we bought snacks and stored them for quick breakfasts.  Also, the business center was helpful with full access to printing and the internet.

We stayed here in August.  I called up and reserved a room at the $119 rate.  When we checked in, I asked if a room was available with AC, and the gentleman at the desk said yes, and that he would bump me up to that room but keep me at my current rate. Great!  However, upon checking out, we discovered we had been charged $129 per night.  When I tried to talk about the error with the woman who was checking me out, she really took issue, developing quite a bad attitude and basically calling me a liar.  I couldn't believe it.  The other woman working the desk intervened and was much nicer, but they refused to do anything about it, telling me that I had always been booked at the $129 rate, and I was just misremembering. The manager was not in and there was nothing they would do about it. Period, end of story.  

A couple days after we left, I called the manager. It took a few phone calls and messages but eventually I got to speak with him.  While he was nice and said he would look into it, I never heard back from him.  I've called about 2 or 3 times since then and left messages for him, and he has never called me back. So, I'm giving up.

I feel like I got swindled by this hotel, as both my husband and I clearly recall reserving the room at the $119 rate, Plus, even though it is only 10 bucks per night,  it was frustrating that they refused to do anything about it and downright insulting for them to insist it was me who made the error.  What happened to customer service?

So, I really, really do not recommend this hotel, and I do hope they change their attitude about their guests in the future.

I spent two nights in the Mediterranean Inn during the week. The rooms are clean, with a tiny kitchenette and comfortable beds. There is a nice roof deck with great views of the Space Needle and well, Seattle. HOWEVER. Our room faced a narrow passageway with views of a brick wall and at night, the wind whistled through that passageway, making a VERY EXTREMELY ANNOYING noise.  Horrible. Ask for a room facing the street or anywhere except for along the narrow passageway, and you should be pleased with your stay.

My boss refers to staying at the Mediterranean Inn as "slumming it', but in my last recent business trips to Seattle I've had a pretty good experience at this hotel. Yes it is pretty basic and their gym is super tiny and depressing, the beds are comfy, the rooms are clean, they got LCD TV's with a decent variety of channels and their customer service at the front desk is friendly and attentive. I've stayed at better and worse hotels, this is convenient enough to tons of restaurants in the Queen Anne area, they have an affiliation with a town car service to get you to the airport for only $38.00, worth it when you're not in the mood to take a cab, shared van or schleping the commuer rail. Haven't paid no more than $99.00 a night and as long as our office is in this area, I plan on staying here.

People in Seattle are so spoiled by the actual temperate weather that this hotel only has AC in the rooms on one floor. This is a fact that blows my Midwestern-based brain.

Anyhoo, it's cute, clean, the beds are small (i.e. the full-size is a slightly overgrown twin), and the staff is very nice and helpful. It's a short bus ride to downtown, and half of the rooms have a pretty good view of the water or something (this is just what the old people who care about such things told me).

hmm...where to start?
we found the room for only $70 on hotels.com and probably should've paid the $90 for the Westin. the $20 difference is what they charge for parking ($15) and internet ($5) at the Mediterranean. whoever heard of being charged for internet, especially at a hotel that tries to sell itself to business people? and for a hotel geared toward the business set, why wasn't there a pen or any stationary in our room?
we were told our bed was a full, and it definitely was not.
the website says all the rooms are studio apartments with kitchenettes, which we took to mean the room would be larger than a single bedroom and there would at least be a small stove instead of a microwave.
the television only got 25 channels. we've stayed in a lot of places not as fancy and liked the rooms and service much better. blech

ps, they show great views on the website but our room and many others just faced more rooms.

Room was a little small for two people and we couldn't get the wireless to work but everything else was spectacular.  Service was good, they offered us a cord from internet service.  We were able to check out umbrellas for use during our week-long stay.  $11.00 cab ride to the stadiums, not bad.  Walking distance to some shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment.

I've been to Seattle twice and stayed here both times for a total of three nights. There's certainly going to be higher-end hotels, but I can't see a better value in Seattle. In my walks around the city I passed by some of the more expensive hotels I saw online and could tell that the Mediterranean was the right choice.

-Great neighborhood. I love the short amount of time I've spent in the Queen Anne area. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, Easy Street records is around the corner, a 24-hour grocery store (damn...can't remember the name of it...very cool grocery store, though).
- Two computers with free internet in the lobby
- Walking distance of Space Needle, downtown, Pike Place. Well..if you don't mind walking, that is. Pike Place may be a little too far a walk for some people, but I enjoy the hike down 1st Ave.
- Depending on your room, you can get some good views of downtown and Space Needle. And the viewing deck on the roof offers beautiful views of Puget Sound.
- Starbucks is literally attached to the hotel.
- The price...as mentioned, great value.
- Two free bottles of water and a bag of popcorn...sweet.
- Private parking garage. It's about $15 a night, but a lot better than parking a mile away in a lot or trying to find a rare spot on the street.

- Staff is average. Nice enough, but not terribly concerned about going the extra mile. They are all obviously sick of being asked "How far to Space Needle, Pike Place, etc?" But you work at a hotel in Seattle...deal with it and be a little nicer doing your job.
- Pillows...oh god, the pillows. They are terrible and barely thicker than the sheets.
- No A/C in most rooms, but I went in October both times so it didn't really matter.

In the end, until I move to a higher tax bracket and spend a little more coin on hotels, I can't see spending my money on any other hotel in Seattle.

So it's our anniversary and we decided to take a road trip.  On the schedule...Seattle.  This was a great hotel to stay in.  Not a bad price ($111 per night) with an amazing view of the harbor.  Complementary coffee, water, and popcorn didn't hurt either.  Parking cost extra, but not a biggie.  Location was good, as it's near the space needle and within walking distance to downtown (about 1/2 hr walk).  All in all good experience.

Stayed here only one night. Much better than expected, especially for price, location, and amenities. Security is good as well (not that Queen Anne is a bad area) but it's nice to know. Parking is an extra fee btw. And like a few other reviewers pointed out, the pillows aren't the best.

Dick's Drive-In burgers and Safeway grocery store directly across the street (both open til 1-2am). AMC movie theater 1/2 block up the street, as are several bars and places to eat. Seattle Center, Spaceneedle, Experience & SciFi museums, and Monorail to 5th Ave are a 2-3 block walk.

Each room has kitchenette with coffee maker, fridge, and microwave, along with free bottled water, coffee, and popcorn. Use kayak.com or hotels.com to get best prices (we saved $25 off their rack rate of $120) but expect to pay that difference back in taxes. Friendly staff, would stay here again.

When friends from NY visit, this is the hotel I suggest! It's good value for the price, the rooms are spacious (by NY standards!), clean and well-kept.   The location is close to Seattle Center, giving it close proximity to the monorail for quick downtown trips for friends who don't care to walk or take metro bus. It's very close to the Safeway and Metropolitan Market, lots of good restaurants and bars, and, as a few of my friends commented, convenient to good cd stores!

The front desk staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel doesn't have a 'touristy' feel to it, which is a plus in my book!

When I look for a hotel, I look for something that's clean, well located, and comfortable. My friend must have known that because she booked us here for a big convention weekend recently. It was a very nice hotel experience, and believe me, I've been in them all! For $109 a night for two people. we were very close to Key Arena (where our events took place) and close to some good restaurants, especially Mecca. The room was comfortable, though not large, completely quiet and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Don't know what else you could ask for!

I stayed at this hotel 8-31 to 9-1-12 room 113 and was very disappointed with it. We were put on the bottom level right by the lobby. The room was very small, if the door to the bathroom was open you couldn't get out of the room. It was like a maze. The bed was one of the worse I have ever stayed on you could feel every spring and if your partner moved the bed would bounce around. But unfortunately the bed wasn't the worst part. The noise was horrible if some one was taking a shower or flushing the toilet or taking a shower in any of the rooms around yours you could hear the loud roar in the pipes i kind of felt like i was on a ship. The walls were also paper thin I could hear everything that was being said in the room next to our and in the hallway. All these noises would wake me up through out the night. When we visited it was very hot out about 80 in seattle is hot and these rooms don't have AC and since we were on the first level we couldn't leave the window open.  Also when we were checking out on of the receptionists in the lobby was very rude to a cab driver looking for the person who called the cab. It was very uncomfortable. On the plus side it was nice being able to park our car under the hotel and I liked the kitchen nook. I also liked the starbucks in the lobby. I would never  stay at this hotel again to be honest I have stayed at motel 6 that were a step up from this and cost about 1/4 the price.

Apparently the cost of this hotel goes up for events.  We were there for 4th of July, and it was total $210 (including upgrade, not including parking) for one night.  However, it is much less expensive than most all other hotels in this area.

We chose to "upgrade" ($20) to the top floor with a waterfront view.  The view was gorgeous, and the windows actually open all the way out.  I heard some others complaining about noise when we were checking out.  They were requesting a top floor room, to which I replied it was very quiet in the room where we stayed.  There is rooftop access, but it's a very small, narrow patio - not the whole roof by any means.

There was nothing spectacular about this place.  The parking was extra ($16), and I wasn't informed of this when given the parking pass.   And it really irritates me when there's no wireless available.  We stayed at the Days Inn just outside of Seattle (Interurban Ave.) a few nights later for $70, had free wireless, a pool and hot tub, access to a printer to print our boarding passes, a quiet room and comfortable bed, and free parking.  

Another annoying thing about this place is that the elevators were reeeeally slow.  Being on the 6th floor added to the annoyance I'm sure.

The staff was courteous and attentive.  The hotel is within walking distance of everything.  You can walk to Key Arena and downtown (if you're up for a little bit of a longer jaunt).

I stayed here for 3 days (1/5-1/8/10). I was just here on vacation visiting and checking out the sites. We got a really good deal on the room and they did price match it for us when we came across a cheaper rate. I was looking for a place close to everything but I didn't want to pay $150 for a room I was hardly going to be in. This place fit.

Price $65.00/night (double bed)
Close to public transportation(monorail $4.00 round trip to downtown)
About a 15 min walk to pike place if you feel like walking
metropolitan market (like wholes food)
small kitchenette (fridge, sink, coffee)
Starbucks downstairs
GREAT view from the rooftop
Right to space needle/seattle center

The smell of the hotel, like old cigarettes, we had to sleep with the heater on full blast and leave the windows open.
The blankets had cigarette burns in them, I took them off and got 3 white sheets from the front desk and just used those instead, did the job.
Maids leave @ 3pm, so if you need anything be sure to ask before then or else you ll have to walk down to the front desk to ask.

Overall the hotel did not wow me in anyway. It got the job done for the price I was looking to spend, so you can believe I got my moneys worth. I probably would not stay here again but if I did I wouldn't be extremely upset.

Different hotel - has a small European feeling to it. $7.60 a day gets you wifi, dvd rentals and bike rental (including helmet) for the day -- very cool!
Chris at the front desk was awesome!! The bathroom towels were thin and very cheap, like Motel 6.

This was a fabulous hotel.  This was our first time in this neighborhood.  We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Queen Anne neighborhood.  The Mediterranean was close to the Space Needle and the Seattle Center.  I think it was like two blocks and BAM you are there by the International fountain, the Science Center and the whole area.  When we wanted to go to the Market we hopped on the Monorail @ the Seattle Center and took it too the Westlake Center and walked downhill to the Market.  After the Market we were usually loaded down with fruit and flowers so we hopped in a cab and were back to the Mediterranean for under $6.  Or stay in the 'hood and eat at the Mecca, so yummy and it's a bar too.  There was Athina (their spelling) Greek...wonderful.  We had fun in the QA 'hood and did our own bar crawl but we really did prefer the Mecca bar.  Enough about everything the Mediterranean is close to and on to why we WILL be back to stay at this hotel.  We got the King size bed we wanted and the room was clean and was the perfect size.  There was  a bay window with an upholstered bench (perfect for reading).  We got there well before check in and they actually let us into our room early (that is really hard to find in the stupid, stupid hotel game).  There is a Starbucks with free Wi Fi and you can usually get that free Wi Fi in the hotel lobby.  The rooftop deck was wonderful in the morning.  Beautiful panoramic views of the Sound and the Queen Anne hillside neighborhood (I found myself house  hunting).  There is a mini-fridge and microwave.  The hotel provides Starbs and popcorn AND bottled water in the fridge.  Helpful hint Seattle tap water is delish so just refill your reusable water bottles.  When we were there during a warm week.  A/C would've been handy but keep you windows open with the ceiling fan on and it's comfy.  The hotel also provided a floor fan, which we kept on at night for "white noise" and additional cooling.  We're from Texas and are used to complementing our A/C with fans.  This was a great place to stay and we will not only be back but we will refer people to stay here!!

Star 1: Freakin' awesome location.  RIGHT next to the Seattle Center, steps away from Bumbershoot, the festival over Labor Day weekend every year.  This is probably the best deal for proximity to the festival.  Oh, and you don't hear a PEEP from the outdoor concerts, which is quite shocking.  You DO hear the vacuum start from housekeeping around 9 a.m. though.

Star 2: Freakin' awesome location in terms of great restaurant options (from dirty old Dick's across the street to fancy Thai restaurant Racha Noodles on the corner to a delicious greasy late-night Cafe Mecca), grocery store (nice Safeway), record shops (Easy Street Records), bus lines, taxis, bars.  

Star 3: Friendly staff.  Maybe a little too comfortable, since one dude recommended a bar based on the availability of single guys.  Hmmm.  But a very helpful and willing concierge, gave us info on the water taxi and how to get around.

Star 4: UNBELIEVABLE ROOFTOP VIEW!!!!!  It really is spectacular, the water next to the city.  The Physics, a local rap group, do this song called "City Lights," and after a drunken night on the town, climbing up the stairs and freezing our asses off on the roof, seeing the amazing Seattle skyline and the water at night, you really understand that song and why people brave the 9 winter months for the 3 spectacular summer months in this city.

One missing star: The blankets and sheets just barely cover the bed.  That means they are too small.  And for a couple whose averaged height is about 6 feet, it can get ridiculous.  And the room was pretty baren, and had a VHS set while the hotel did not have a VHS library.  But they do have free Internet in the lobby so don't pay the $5 to get it in your room.  OH, and don't worry that there's no AC because there's a great ceiling fan right above the bed.

Cost: $149/night (and for some reason we got a free upgrade to a Queen-sized bed).  We booked a flight + hotel deal on Expedia, and that's the breakdown after flight cost deduction.

Parents are staying here for the weekend, and I went to visit them to get them settled.  The lobby is really nice, and the concierge was very friendly, even at 11:00 PM!  She gave us advice for good eats and a grocery store in the area.  There's a Safeway right around the corner that's open until 1 AM, and a Metropolitan Market (a specialty food store, a little more eccentric than your typical supermarket) within two blocks, and it's open 24 hours a day.  You're very close to the Seattle Center, in which lies the great Space Needle.

The room was small, but cozy.  The two bottles of water and the popcorn is a nice touch.  Very nice bathroom!

The clientele seems to be a younger, 20-something crowd.  I saw a lot of people walking around the halls who were around my age.

I recommend this place for people who want to be removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Seattle, but want to be within a mile of the action.  Belltown is maybe a 15 minute walk away, and downtown is 25 minutes or so.

Parking is $15 a night in a garage.  Highly recommended if you're bringing a car, because parking is rather scarce and annoying to pay the meter every couple hours.  $15 is pretty reasonable for the area, I'd say.

I stayed here for the Seattle Marathon. It was so close to the staring line. Parking is tight in the garage, but I was able to get a spot both nights. Yes, like other reviewers mentioned, there is bus traffic, but I didn't find the noise bothersome. The room was clean. Complementary Starbucks coffee and popcorn in the room was a nice tough. The Mediterranean Inn is a great under-the-radar budget-friendly hotel near the Seattle Center. I would absolutely recommend it.

Great customer service
Nice rooms, and we were right next to the elevator, and didnt hear a peep.
FREE Internet access makes it totally convienent for outta towners.

Fridge in the room and a SAFEWAY across the street make it easy to have food (and beer =) ...)

Laundry and a workout room.

Great value for money. I stay here every time to come to Seattle. Staff give 5-star service. Great location 5-10 minute drive from downtown, decent-sized clean rooms (flat-screen TV with DVD; comfy bed) with kitchenettes (ask for an electric burner on check-in). Lots of nearby restaurants (10 Mercer is fancier, Kidd Valley burgers, Signature Vietnamese pho, Mecca Cafe diner, McMinniman's Irish pub/restaurant, Racha Thai and Bahn Thai) and  coffee shops (Lladro and Uptown Coffee) are all favorites. Starbucks is on the ground floor. Safeway & Metropolitain Market are nearby for in-room meal needs. Also several cost-effective nail salons (mani is $15).

Paid parking garage. Laundry room & OK gym. Incredible 360-degree view from the roof terrace!

Upper floor rooms variously have views of the space needle, Mt Rainer & Elliott Bay, the Cascades or Queen Anne hill. Lots of buses and the monorail nearby.

Cons--air cons only on the 6th floor (only critical in Aug). Incredible views are on upper floors.

We stayed in a cute room that had a view of the Space Needle (I love the Space Needle). It's kitty corner from Dick's burgers (had it for the first time when we stayed here) and close to other restaurants and wine bars, Seattle Center, and even a Blockbuster Video. We also ordered pizza from a local place that delivered when we got back to our room around 1AM. It was good bang for your buck.

Not way too bad place to stay. There's nothing great about this place. But it sure does the job. The rooms are a little small. It's very close to the Seattle Center (walking distance about a 3-5 blocks). They have a gym and rooftop place to take pictures of the skyline. There's a Starbucks connected. Safeway is right across the street. However this part of area Seattle feels like a run-down (becoming) Detroit-like area. Anyways, the bad things about this place is that it is $15 for parking!!!!!! And contrary to what Hotels.com says, there is a fee for wi-fi usage.

I stayed here two nights during my 3 week stint in Seattle. I don't know why, but I really loved it. The room was cozy, the little kitchenette was useful, and the places to eat around there were really good. I went out on my second day there and just walked around by myself and you get great views of the Needle, the ocean, and cute little shops here and there. One good thing I didn't do was park there (I thought I'd be very touristy and take the buses..which actually run so slow I wanted to kill myself). Still, there was a Von's right down the way where I got a few groceries to get me by, and the Starbucks downstairs was glorious because I practically live in one.

Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and I had a lot of fun just hanging out there and get away from the craziness that is my family :]

It's a cute place to go if you're on a vacation too!

We stayed there last September (2009) & I got bug bites the size of half a baseball and the front desk just shrugged it off. I had to demand I be moved to another room on another floor. I'm pretty sure they were bed bugs.

The spectacular view of the bay and space needle from the roof doesn't make up for large painful bug bites. Neither does the starbucks on the lobby.

It is a nice location. Easy to walk to the waterfront and restaurant and local attractions.  Our bedroom faced into the other building next door. The front desk did not explain their Internet charge at check in. It is an extra $5.00, and parking is $15.00. The spaces in the garage are extremely small. In the morning, we had maintenance knocking on our door at 8 am, and housekeeping at 9 even though checkout was not until 12 . We were not able to enjoy the late checkout due to all the disruptions. In addition, housekeeping was extremely loud in the hallways. There were also some weird loud sounds at night.

Overall, no complaints.  The rooms are nothing spectacular, but a good online deal and mediocre expectations help.  As another reviewer said, "The Mediterranean Inn is a good example of you get what you pay for."

Front desk staff was very friendly.

There's a rooftop with a view, free gym and $ laundry machines.

Lo-speed wi-fi was $5 a day (boo) and they provided a cable to hardwire in if the connection was poor.  (Apparently, wi-fi is free in the lobby).

Our room had a full-sized bed and small desk, ceiling fan, tv w/dvd player, minifridge (with two complimentary bottled waters), coffee maker w/ Starbucks coffee, a microwave and a pack of microwave popcorn.  Everything appeared clean.

Parking is $$, but if you check-in at night and plan to be up early, street parking is easy post/pre-metered hours.

There's a handful of bars and eateries around or within walking distance, but this isn't a very late night happening part of Seattle.  There's a 24 hour grocery store just a hop away.

I'd feel just fine about staying here again.

Best thing about this hotel is the location which can't be beat, especially if you're traveling without a car. Don't expect the trappings of luxury or to be spoiled by amenities. Do expect a clean room and helpful service at a good price. A good option for low-maintenance out-of-town travelers who appreciate practicality and plan to spend most of their house outside of their room. There is a business center and fitness room. Bonus: the full Starbucks store virtually in the lobby.

We got an excellent deal for this hotel on Expedia. $79/night and worth every penny. The location is easily accessed from the airport via light rail. We took the light rail to the end and made the mistake of getting a taxi to the hotel. For a lot less, you can take the monorail from the Westlake Center, which is where the light rail lets you off. Just take the escalator upstairs and there is an elevator outside the mall that will take you there. (All this granted your flight arrives before the monorail hours end) We used the monorail numerous times as a starting point to cut off walking time to Pike Place Market and other sites downtown. The rooms were nothing special but were suitable enough for our taste. The kitchenette was a really nice touch, as we wanted to pregame at the hotel before going out, so it was a good place to keep our beer cold. We actually didn't drink much of the beer, so we left it up on the observation deck. Finders, keepers! Speaking of the deck, it offers an awesome view of the Space Needle and Seattle. The front desk staff were welcoming and offered good suggestions. There is a good nightlife spot a block away, Peso's, that we really liked. I would definitely stay here again if I went back to Seattle!

The Med is a surprising quaint boutique hotel conveniently located in Queen Anne.  Rates were very reasonable at $69/night, $10/night for parking, and $5 for internet in your room.  Free internet is available in the lobby.  I normally stay at the Westin, Sheraton, or the bigger hotels downtown when coming to Seattle; but I am really tired of paying $35/night for parking and another $15/night for internet.

Rooms are a little small, no on site restaurant, and I also notice no air conditioning, but the window works pretty good.  There is a Starbucks attached and the hotel is waking distances to all the different food you are looking for.  

We had an event at the Seattle Center so it was a short walk and meetings in downtown which was a short trip away.  Not too bad of a place and will return in the future.

Great location, clean and nice staff.  If you are wanting to visit Seattle for the first time and the first thing on your list is the Space Needle, then position yourself here at The Mediterranean Inn and you'll be in the mix.  
Close by, like walking distance, is another NW favorite, but being from any place but WA, you didn't even know you needed to visit this burger joint.  It's called Dicks' and all jokes aside, this is a local favorite as far as cheap burgers go.  It's convenient location to your hotel could just save your life from a morning of nausea. Night of drinking + Greasy burgers = no hangover.  (Hey I don't make the rules, I just know they're true).
The rooms may be squishy, but that's because they can fit in a decent sized kitchnette, bathroom, and desk in there.  You can get never ending coffee and water bottles so if you drink a lot ( of liquids that is) this is the place for you.
Tip - festival times, this place fills up quickly and raises the price so check the city calendar for items like Bumbershoot and Folklife festivals.

First of all, I'd say if you want to see a great view of Seattle, then the Mediterranean Inn is the perfect choice for you. You can go to the rooftop and then have a 360 degree look over Seattle which is great for photo ops.

Otherwise, the hotel quality is average at best. I came, expecting wireless internet and a decent gym. I ended up getting no wireless internet, $20 parking a night, and a hole in the wall gym.

The quality of the rooms are alright. Good enough for a business trip, but I wouldn't recommend bringing your significant other there.

Regarding the area around the hotel, its pretty far from downtown. Definitely not a walking distance. There are some decent small pubs, but thats about it. Wouldn't be comfortable to let my significant other walk around by herself at night.

In the end, stay here for the view and then go downtown for your hotel stay.

prices were a bit expensive but i got a descent deal booking online, and searching for like two hours.
I picked this Inn because of its excellent location, it was a few block from the space needle, and there you can pick up the tram to downtown. I had an awesome trip. Also there's a lot of good little places to eat around the neighborhood and a theater on the other side of the street.

Room was nice and cozy only thing i wished is for wifi. Man it makes your trip soo much easier.

Clean rooms, conveniently located, reasonable rates.

We had no problem finding street parking. We were out and about all day, so we would get home, not have to pay for meters overnight and just leave early enough the next morning to see more of Seattle! The most we ever paid for parking was an hour or 2 in the morning to cover some time on the meter. If you do it this way, you don't have to fork out $10 extra for parking per day. It's not a matter of being cheap, it's just that there's curbside parking readily available so why pay if you don't have to?!

The rooms were small but did the job.

I was really surprised to see a VCR in the room! They had really old TVs too. It didn't make much of a difference, but in the world of flat panel TVs, it was strange to see an old back beat up 24 incher.

Overall the stay was great and your can't beat the location or the price.

I recently completed a 3-night stay here for vacation.  

I was able to find a ~ $95/night deal on hotels.com and was interested in this place because of the yelp reviews that I had read.

The rooms here are certainly not spectacular.  The furniture in my room was somewhat beat up (the arm of my chair was falling apart).  And some of the paint on the walls appear to be peeling a little bit.  But the place is certainly clean and simple (which is what I would expect for the price I paid) and the bed was pretty comfortable because I slept great each night I was there.  On the major plus side, each room has a kitchenette, featuring a small fridge, sink and microwave.  I was able to buy some food at the nearby Safeway (another plus--a supermarket that is only 1 minute away) and store in the fridge for late night snacks.

The staff at the front desk were very friendly to me.  I called them several times on the phone in my room and they always answered quickly and politely.  There is a computer room on the first floor if you need to surf the internet and print documents (like maps and tickets if you are traveling on vacation).  The charge for internet in your room is $5/night, although I believe they charge $15/week too if you plan on staying long.  There is no wireless internet available, but rather they provide you an ethernet cable.

Definitely pay a visit to the rooftop during the day or night to get a great view of the Space Needle.

The hotel is located within 5-10 minutes of the monorail, allowing you to easily get to downtown Seattle to visit Pike Place Market and the other touristy spots.

For the deal-seeking-but-not-wanting-to-stay-in-a-crappy-­hotel type, I would highly recommend the Mediterranean Inn!

I stayed there over Labor Day Weekend and Bumbershoot, and I still only paid about $120 or less/night. On top of that, the hotel was in a great location, clean, and the rooms feature kitchenettes - which is great for storing some small meal/snacky type foods so you're not always searching for restaurants or takeout. (AND - there is a Safeway a block away, so you can pick-up food, wine, and beer there!)

The hotel is within walking distance of Seattle Center/the Space Needle and some fun Uptown bars and retail. It's also on many bus lines to downtown and other popular neighborhoods.

I was there for business and fun, but I imagine the hotel would also be a good place to stay with family.

Could there be more amenities? Yes. But if you're even the least bit self-sufficient, this hotel will be just fine.

I saw someone else ragged on paying for internet access, but from what I remember, it was a nominal fee for fast internet...for the entire week.

I now live in Queen Anne, and I always refer my friends to that hotel if they are interested in visiting Seattle.

Searching for Seattle city centre hotels on Expedia proved a heart-sinking experience for their price, especially with exorbitant parking charges as well. Being a single traveller, expensive plush hotels rooms were an unnecessary luxury.

The Mediterranean Inn promised to be a cheaper alternative still within easy reach of downtown. I was drawn to a promised great rooftop view. Following my internet driving instructions through the hustle and honking of the middle of town, it was nice to arrive in the quieter Queen Anne district. The distinctive yellow hotel is immediately obvious and I parked in the 'do not leave for more than 5 minutes' kerbside and dashed in to check in and get access to the parking garage - $15 a day parking charge. Perhaps, a dedicated area for cars to pull into would have been nice and alleviated my fear of getting a ticket while checking in.

Access to the underground car park is by keycard. Be careful and go slow as you drive into the garage or you will scrape the bottom of your car. The fit for some of the parking spaces was quite snug and I was glad to be driving a compact car!

The rooms were absolutely fine - clean, reasonable size, comfortable bed as well as a mini fridge and microwave. There was a ceiling fan to compensate for lack of AC - fine for my trip in Sep but some reporters have said it's too warm in the summer months. It was nice to have some complimentary bottles of water in the fridge as well as popcorn for the microwave! I had a view of the Space Needle from my window.

The view from the roof was as great as promised, especially at dusk when the lights of city twinkle on. You can see the nearby Space Needle, the taller buildings of downtown as well as Puget Sound. There was also a Starbucks on the 1st floor and an exercise room. There were 2 free computers available for general use (no chairs) in the lobby as well as a business centre.

There are a lot of great amenities within a few blocks of the hotel. The western edge of the Seattle Center complex is a block away, providing easy access to the Space Needle, Sci Fi museum, Experience Music project, Pacific Science Center and the monorail to downtown Seattle. There are several restaurants, a Safeway and a cinema within 2 blocks of the hotel. A walk up the hill along Queen Anne Ave brings you to another cluster of restaurants. Bus connections zip you downtown but it's only a 20-25 minute walk away.

I found the Mediterranean Inn to prove a good base to explore Seattle city centre.

We stayed at the Mediterranean Inn 3 nights on a recent trip to Seattle.  I booked this hotel from hotels.com based on price, location and what it offered and overall this was the best deal.

I was a bit nervous since I tend to stay at the larger, chain-type hotels but was very pleased with this place.  Our room was not huge but big enough for my teenager and I.  Our room looked out to the skylight of the lobby and a small patio area, which while there wasn't much of a view, I think was quieter than having a room facing the street.  We were able to keep our windows open at night for some fresh cool air and it was very quiet.

The view from the roof was amazing!!!!  Having a small kitchen area was nice.  We walked over to Safeway across the street to get some breakfast cereal, milk, sodas etc so we could snack and have breakfast in the room.   Staff was always friendly and helpful when I had questions about directions to various places.

BIGGEST complaint was the parking!  First when we got there I had difficulty finding a place to park so I could check in since 2 taxis were parked in the loading/unloading area right in front.  I had to park down the block a bit in a parking lot.  As other's have stated parking is $15 a night, a bit pricey but not really in a city where parking anywhere costs a fortune!  First place I parked was VERY little.....I cleared a concrete column with about an inch to spare.  The next time I came in to park we discovered there were lower levels (P4, P6) that were much less congested and I found spots I could just pull straight into with plenty of room on each side of my mid-size car.

Next time I up in the area I will check out this hotel again.  Maybe they will still have my favorite pillow I left there!  :-(

We stayed Dec 6th - 9th 2012, Got an awesome deal on Expedia for the weekend of UFC Fox 5, Great hotel for the price! Close to everything, Key Arena, safeway, Dicks burgers, bars, so many things in walking distance! All employees were friendly and some would make great comedians. The hotel was clean & welcoming
The room was nice & the microwave & fridge really came in handy!!
Bed was comfortable, Roof deck was nice but it was chilly so we didn't really hang out up there.
I did try the starbucks on site one morning & was very dissappointed, It took forever to evn get my mocha & when I did it was gross, it wasn't even made right, but the worst part is that the person serving me was rude & acted as if I were bothering them with my order. needless to say I didn't return there for my morning coffee the rest of my stay!
If you are looking for a place to walk for a great meal,The best resteraunt near there is the Mecca, (about a block away) they have awesome homestyle food, & large portions! all the workers are humorous & friendy, there may be a line out front, wait in it cause it is worth it!
Also we got dropped off & picked up to avoid the $15.00 per night parking charge which is comparable to all seattle hotels! The one thing about staying anywhere in Seattle is that whether you are a local or from out of town, you will have to pay $15.00 or more for the parking garage & all the taxes including the tourist tax.

We enjoyed our stay & location so much that we be coming back here again, every year when UFC is in Seattle!!

You can bet on it!!

We stayed here for three nights over Memorial Day weekend. The price was decent and the location was EXCELLENT for Folklife. Seriously, we could walk there in minutes, which was great given that we were there with a toddler.  It was great for transit connections to N. Queen Anne, downtown and Fremont neighbourhoods as well. The bed was comfy, the room was clean, and the little kitchenette was a great bonus. Paying $4.99 a night for WiFi was a little irritating, given the price of the room was over $100 per night. Having a Starbucks in the lobby was mighty convenient; actually, the hotel was surrounded by great restaurants and two convenient grocery stores. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, especially for someone attending an event at Seattle Center.

Nice hotel in the north part of Seattle in the Queen Anne district.  Very comfortable rooms (but no AC...just heat and windows that open).  Pleasant staff.  DVD player in our room which was nice.  With some walking it is convenient for downtown, just north of the Space Needle. Reasonably priced for a downtown hotel. Starbucks off lobby too.  Hard to beat.  WiFi was $5/day.

This is NOT a resort hotel!!

When I checked in, I was informed that there would be an additional $7.60 resort fee charged each day I stayed.   I was prepared for the $15 a day to park, but this other fee out of no where and wasn't included in the price quote from hotels.com .  I started my stay irked.  

For the resort fee you get: 'new' dvd rentals (the newest title was from 2002 and they had purchased these dvd's from blockbuster; the one I got didn't even work!), roof top deck (there were three chairs on a roof), gym (two machines), bike rentals (this was good, but we didn't use it everyday) and coffee/tea/popcorn in the room (one bag of each).  

For the additional costs, it makes more sense to stay in one of the nicer hotels in the area.   Hotels.com and Mediterranean Inn should make sure that the prices quoted are inclusive of all fees.

The employes were nice, but I just felt ripped off by the extra fees.  Boo.

There's good and bad.  Let's start with the good.  Great neighborhood!  A nice variety of eateries within walking distance.  The city's main attraction...the Space Needle and the Seattle Center is a 5 minute walk.  Staff was friendly.  They helped us with getting around the area.  We asked for eating recommendations, but they (themselves) have not eaten in the neighborhood.  

Now, the not-so-good.   Not family friendly.  Not an ideal place for kids (small rooms).  We booked a room with double beds.  The rooms and beds were SMALL.  My "room with a view" was 90% brick alley with 5% Space Needle, 5% other rooftops with a smidge of Puget Sound.   We had to go request a room with two larger beds.  They were happy to accommodate us for a $20.00 a night fee.  The kitchenette was a sink and tiny refrigerator.

The building has character.  The worst character trait was the noise.  I don't know why it's a noisy hotel.  Nothing beat the drunken argument in the alley at 2:00 a.m.  Lots of traffic noise.  Seattle drivers like to honk a lot,  especially in the wee hours of the morning.  Walls are thin.  We could hear our neighbors having "fun" next door and our neighbors upstairs liked to stomp and drop stuff.  

They also boast that there is a Starbucks in the lobby.  True.  However, they close EARLY (8:00 p.m.)  Thank goodness for all the other coffee shops in the neighborhood.  

BEWARE of the "Special Guest Package"  The hotel wants to charge you $8.00 a night for internet, workout, lobby computer usage, rental bikes and workout room use.  I cry "shenanigans!"  You can use the lobby computers and workout room for free anyway.  If you're up for walking around, there was no need for the bikes.  As for wi-fi, if you're close to the Starbucks downstairs, you can use that for free.  But remember, they kick you out at 8:00 p.m.  So we kicked down for wi-fi at the hotel for $3.00 a night.  But they will try the up-sale.  I felt that I was dealing with used car salespeople.  

Housekeeping... Geeze!  We would leave in the morning for sightseeing and cheesy touristy fun and get back in the afternoon to find our housekeepers still working in our room.  Two days in a row, we just wanted to come in and freshen up for dinner and we couldn't because we had to wait for our room to get finished.  It was a total drag having to wait after a long day.

Parking at the hotel... Be sure you have a compact car!!! Parking stalls are SMALL!!  Compared to the rest of the city, parking for $15.00 a night is a bargin.  However, their "secured & locked" underground, gated parking was open all night.  We let staff know,  but nothing was done to close the gate.

I don't know if I would stay there again.  The location is fantastic and there were other hotels in the neighborhood.  Again, this is not ideal for a family.  My 13 year old was not wow'd at all...even going to the roof to get in the scenary did not do the trick.   Too bad.  The room rate when I booked online was great.  Beware of all the hidden and pop-up fees that will come your way.

Nice hotel in Queen Anne close to Seattle Center (Space Needle, EMP, Monorail, Key Arena).  The rooms are clean and comfortable with kitchenettes.  There is NO A/C - do not be surprised by this!  We went in late July and were fine with the ceiling fan and window, but if you must have a/c, don't book here!  There is a cool rooftop deck with good views of the city and the water.  The staff was friendly and helpful at all times.

I have to disagree with those who say the hotel is on a "very busy street".  I just didn't see that.  It is a one-way main road, but we did not see a high volume of cars nor people in this area at all.  I thought it was a nice area and there are several restaurants you can walk to.

We had a lovely time here - I recommend it!

It was a decent price to stay here. I think it was nicer than I expected, but I have very low expectations. There wasn't an air conditioner, but I don't think many hotels in the area have them. Crack the window and it gets cold in no time. On the down side, the tiny, full bed room that we shared had only one window and it faced the inside of the building like a courtyard. I thought that would cause problems with light or noise from other guests, but really all it did was stop me from my favorite travelling pastime: standing naked in a hotel window trying to cause a traffic jam.  

Because of the ill-placed window we spent a lot of time on the roof deck overlooking the city and the water which I really liked. It gets chilly up there so bring a sweatshirt.  And a bottle of wine because it can get romantic, quick.

Parking is an unexpected extra $15 a day. Their secured garage goes so far down I was almost certain that I would start to see stalagmites.  

The elevators take forever. I think one of them was actually inactive while we stayed here.

I never used the gym, but there are free water bottles and fruit in there, so be sure to grab one before a day of walking. My girlfriend and I walked to the space needle from here and it wasn't an overwhelming walk. Maybe if we were old we would have complained that our dogs hurt, but we are young and that wasn't a problem, however my girlfriend did get pooped on by a bird while walking down to Pike Place Market. That wasn't really a problem; she had almost-white blonde hair.

Great location.  Visited Seattle for a weekend and booked thru Expedia.  

Front desk was friendly/chill.
Walking distance to many bars/restaurants.
Walking distance to Seattle Center and Space Needle.
Free water bottles.
Starbucks in the lobby.
Free rental bikes/helmets.

my only gripe was that our Room was overlooking the courtyard and that was a sad sight.  Its not really the hotels fault and next time i will request
a room facing out.

Some people complain about this "resort fee" and personally it wasnt that big of a deal.  With the fee you get the Rental Bikes, bottled water, coffee in the room, and some other things.  The rental bikes alone are worth the $7.50/day.  Anyways, we liked the Mediterranean Inn and would stay there again.

I think it's B.S. that a hotel charges 15.00 to park per night. When I complained about it to the desk clerks they tell me all the hotels charge this. I then told him he is full of it. holiday Inn down the street don't. Then he said oh yeah! They don't charge. I then told him he should not be saying that if it's not true. B.S.

***Great location - walking distance to Space Needle and Seattle Center, on bus line for easy access (without parking) to downtown/Pike Place Market, with two grocery stores and countless restaurants within a two to three block walk.
***Clean rooms with refrigerators, coffee makers and microwaves (no plates or cooking utensils however).
***COMFORTABLE beds!  VERY, very comfortable.
***Attentive, helpful, friendly staff.  They actually remember guests, chat a bit and make the stay more enjoyable.
***High speed computers, fax and printers available for FREE 24 hr use (in a room behind the front desk). Wireless available (for a fee).
***Some rooms have blocked views, others have fabulous views. Let the staff know your preference when booking. You can call direct to book a room - if you find a lower price on internet sites, mention that when booking and they'll match the price.
***Definitely will stay with them again when in Seattle.

Stayed here while coming to hear jazz at Jazz Alley. What a neat old hotel. Old in architecture, not in linens or furnishings.  Very clean good sized room. BUT the really COOL part of this hotel is that they have this rooftop you can head up to and look over where you can see for miles. There are chairs to sit down and take it all in.  It was a breath of fresh air. The front desk was very nice and the price at the time was 99.00! Not too shabby. The only thing that could have been better was the very strange underground parking.. whoa be careful on the BUMPS.. YIKES. We drive a small car so not so bad but look out if you are driving one of those freight cars, I mean SUVs. The parking is free though.

A surprising bargain for people on a tight budget. At first we were thinking of staying outside Seattle so as not to pay more than 100/night for a room. But Mediterranean Inn allowed us to be in the middle of Seattle, have a great experience and still stay on budget.

Very clean; friendly service. Centrally located in downtown and great for anyone who wants to go car-less during their stay in Seattle; we stayed 3 nights, two full days with no car. (From the airport, you can even take the light rail into Seattle Center, then a very short cab ride/walk to the hotel.)

At first the 7 dollar/day resort fee seems a little off-putting (for the in-room coffee and bottled water, internet), but that fee also included all-day use of rental bikes (with helmets and locks), which my husband and I used to tour Seattle. It saved us a TON on public transportation and parking (plus we never had to pay the daily hotel parking fees)....14 bucks total for two full days of two people biking...great deal. Granted, they were 3-speed cruisers, but we took them to the International District, Pioneer Square, the waterfront, and then all the way to the Ballard neighborhood. It was a great way to see Seattle considering our touring agenda.

No free breakfast, but there's a Starbucks adjoining the hotel. Staff is young, but very nice and helpful; eager to get us set up with our bikes (had tools to adjust seats, etc.) and point out bike routes/attractions.

I was happy to get a good rate on a hotel for the in-laws for an extended stay.  I let the person taking the reservation know that there would be a third person staying there for a week of the reservation and was advised to ask the front desk for a roll-away at that time (it was noted on the reservation).  The stay was uneventful until the third person came and we were told that the fire code prevents that room from having the roll-away.
After being told several times that there was nothing they could do (rather than seeking out a solution), I was told that they could be moved for 3 of the last 6 days for a $150 "upgrade fee.  I agreed.  At check-out, I was notified that this was "per night".
Not happy.

We stayed for one night in July. The fact that it was July is important because it was almost 80 degrees outside which is hot for Seattle. Our room was on the first floor and did not have air conditioning. There was a ceiling fan but sleeping with the window open (no screen) was out of the question on the first floor.  It was really stuffy and hard to sleep.  Other than that the free coffee, water, and popcorn were nice.  Very easy to catch a cab out front.  The front desk staff was very nice. The view from the roof, especially at night, is amazing. Also appreciated the free AirPrint HP laser jet printer that was available. I would recommend staying here any time it is not hot outside.

Stayed here recently, and it did the job. It was close to the the venue I was attending, was pretty cheap (through hotels.com ) and the room ws clean. Neighbourhood was decent enough.

I liked that there was a Starbucks in the hotel, and also the $15 parking charge was less than a lot of hotels are charging nowadays.

Its nothing fancy or high end, just solid value. Give them a try!

This was a great find !!  I was looking on hotels.com for an immediate place to stay as we were traveling through.  I planned on spending much more in the heart of Seattle, but i came across this hotel.  Everything about this place was awesome.  The staff were exceptional.  The room had a full equipped kitchenette.  Free in room WiFi and lots of extras like the little thing of Orville Reddenbacher popcorn.  This place is a class act.  Next time we are going to Seattle I will stay here intentionally.  Good Job !

My experience, from start to finish, was excellent at the Mediterranean Inn. I did not expect much, as I was only in town for two days and needed a conveniently located and inexpensive hotel so I booked on Hotwire. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The lobby was beautifully decorated and renovated, and the room possessed great details and materials and VERY clean. The towels were huge. They kept the Mediterranean theme without being tacky. Free Starbucks coffee, popcorn, and bottled water in the room. Even a microwave and fridge, and plastic utensils in case you want to save on meal purchases while in town. New DVD player and flat screen TV. Lower Queen Anne is the perfect location, walking distance to downtown, quiet, yet with all conveniences and a bunch of different cuisines within 1-2 blocks. The rooftop deck had beautiful views. The front desk was friendly and very helpful. If you want a gorgeous, safe, clean, inexpensive and convenient place to stay in Seattle with a European vibe, and a view of the Space Needle from your room, stay at the Mediterranean Inn. Do not expect large room (much like European hotels) but it's not necessary. I loved my stay here.

This place was ok. It was one of the cheaper places to stay in Seattle. Walking distance to Space Needle and other places nearby.

Warning: the rooms had no air conditioning! I know that doesn't sound like a big deal in Seattle but we stayed he end of summer and we were hot! We asked for a fan to put in the window. I had a hard time cooling off. Also, the walls were paper thin and you could hear people walking down the hall.

The place does have an amazing rooftop and view of Seattle. Both the daytime and evening views were spectacular.

They also have bikes you can rent. We rented bikes and rode over to Fremont, which was a lot of fun.

Lovely lobby. Room was spacious and clean. More than I expected. Close to city attractions-- walking distance to space needle, emp museum, chihuly museum to name a few. What disappointed me a bit was that parking for guests is not free--$15/night. There's public parking a block from the hotel though, which is $10/night for those who want a better rate. Overall, service, cleanliness and location are great.

I pretty much live here because I have to spend so much time in Seattle and I've stayed all over but this is my favorite place. The local is great. Right in the middle of Queen Anne, a decent walk or short bus ride to downtown, the water, and the Space Needle is right there and there's some of Seattle's most famous restaurants nearby.

The staff have always been friendly and have helped me with my odd requests, i.e. late check outs, luggage storage, ordering me airport shuttles, etc. There's a rooftop patio you can see the Space Needle and Key Arena from and I think Mediterranean Inn's rooftop view made Trip Advisor's top five list for best roof top views. There's a little workout area, the rooms have a tiny kitchenette and there's several markets nearby, and the rooms are a decent size. They're big enough for me to do my Insanity workouts in them with plenty of room to spare.

There's a small daily wifi charge and I'm not sure about parking since I take the bus everywhere. The rooms are cheap compared to other places I've stayed and the value you get for staying here is waaaay higher.

Definitely stay here when you come to Seattle!

I, too, recently completely a 3 night stay here after some ridiculously cheap fares from Virgin America and a few phone calls to friends. The deal was around $82/night on average which was cheap for such a prime location and I mainly looked on hotels.com instead of yelp because I am often disappointed by Yelp reviews and turned away from hotels that I actually find I don't mind staying at.

This hotel was such a case! I am sad to see that it has such crappy reviews which would normally turn someone like me off because I would simply think it would be a dirty hotel; but all in all the experience was great in consideration of how much money was spent.

The rooms were definitely clean, warm, cozy and comfy. There was enough lighting to be in all kinds of moods from bright ass looking for an earring on the ground to soft, dim romantic lighting. The TV worked well with no static and the rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. The shower had good pressure and my only complaint would be the slight lack of counter space as I bring my entire bathroom to travel.

The parking is $15/ night and the parking garage is horrific, hard to find and difficult to get in and out (you will scrape with a stock STOCK rental car and each spot is made for a mini, seriously ....) but the location is fantastic and lots of great coffee and cafes nearby as well as the famed Seattle center. A+ would stay again!

So I have meant to write a review for this place ever since I got back from my trip.  But just was too lazy to do so.  

Anyways I stayed here and the Sheraton Seattle while I was in Seattle. The first couple days i stay at the Mediterranean Inn  was ok. I mean you do get your money's worth out of it. And there's a very nice view from the roof top. I stayed in room 501 the first time. But the second time nearing the end of my trip i stayed in 401 which looked the same so i thought nothing of it. That next morning i woke up i notice some welts on my arm in clusters of 3. i thought nothing of it. but it lasted til i got home from the trip. i got through something like this before. IT WAS BED BUGS!!! just be careful of this room .. i mean its cheap but im not paying to get eaten alive in my sleep.  they need to look in to it.

I'm stuck in the middle. Mediterranean didn't suck, but it wasn't amazing. Just little things here and there... Usually I write long story telling reviews, but for Mediterranean I'll just list the pros and cons and let you decide.

Affordable, Clean.
Walking distance to Space Needle, EMP, Key Arena, Monorail to Pikes.
AMAZING VIEW from the roof.
Free Internet in lobby area.
Starbucks attached to it.

You have to pay for parking and internet in your room.
The beds were super small.
The website shows rooms with great views, I had a view OF other rooms.
No early check in. 4pm is the earliest they'll let you.
The front desk seemed annoyed anytime I spoke with them.

The biggest con I have, however, is when I called ahead of time to find out what the cheapest way from the Airport to their Hotel is. They told me the cheapest way was to get a Taxi, or for a slightly discounted rate to call a towncar company that they have a deal with. This would have cost me 30-40 Something dollars. On my own, I was able to find a MUCH CHEAPER method.

TIP! If you're coming from the Airport, take the Sound Transit LIGHT RAIL!( soundtransit.org/x11204.… ) It only cost $2.50 per person to get from the airport to Westlake. From Westlake, jump on the Seattle Center MONORAIL- Also $2 per person( seattlemonorail.com ) This will bring you directly to the Space Needle, and a mere TWO BLOCKS from the hotel. The whole trip takes about 45 minutes. I PROMISE you the Light Rail seemed incredibly clean and safe for tourists, and the monorail is filled with tourists anyway. It's ALOT CHEAPER than a taxi or towncar.

Maybe I'm just upset that the hotel tried to make me use their expensive towncar instead of telling me(or knowing about) the light rail/monorail. This hotel definitely does the trick and is acceptable. It certainly isn't a bad hotel and I had no huge glaring problems, but for some reason I don't think I'll be staying here again. Just wasn't my kinda place, I guess.

Despite the view from the room being so-so (facing the north, away from the city center and towards the lovely parking garage of the next-door Safeway), the hidden gem of the hotel, the upper deck, offered a great 360 viewing area of the Puget Sound as well as the city center.  

Wi-fi was not included, however there was a Starbucks literally right next door to fulfill both breakfast and free wi-fi needs (and during the Starbucks operating hours, there's actually a door that directly connects the hotel lobby and the Starbucks cafe without having to walk outside).

Was a bit shocked that the hotel holds a ransom to get a razor and shaving cream set, (Hampton Inn will gladly give you a set for free), so ended up going to Safeway instead to buy them.  

Service there was very courteous, and the hotel was quiet and clean.

Enjoyed my stay here this past weekend, and as others have noted the location (for the price) really can't be beat.   Located just next to Seattle Center and within a short bus ride (or brisk walk) to Pike Place Market.   Rooms were a bit smallish but clean nonetheless.   Service was good, though room cleaning service would come knocking around 8:30am some mornings, really?.  Free bottled water, a Starbucks literally connected to the hotel, heck even a free umbrella rental for those rain inspired touristy moments.  As others have noted, you can easily get by with not having a car here as there is plenty of public transportation nearby.

This place is fine, we got a deal for booking online and it was in a good location and had everything we needed. Lots of space and the staff were helpful and friendly.

We got a king sized bed and I was glad that the rooms were not small and cramped. I think it's a good deal.

It was so nice to have the fridge and microwave so we could bring back some food from Whole Foods.

The parking is expensive in Seattle, so that sucks, but at least they have it underground so it's convenient.

I would stay here again, I love visiting Seattle. It's got some great vegan food and interesting things to do.

We were in Seattle for our 1st time for the Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon and stayed 5 nights at this hotel.

The Pro's-
-Super close to the start & finishline.
-A great location for walking to the Seattle Center and a safe neighborhood for walking at night.
-Great price & very clean.
-Beautiful view from the roof top deck, day or night!
-Short 2 min walk to Safeway (runners eat a lot)

Now the Con's
- The rooms were very small and basic.
- Our room door broke not once but TWICE! It wouldn't close, it would just bounce right back open.
-$15 per night to park. The parking lot is very small and hard to navigate in a mid size vehicle. Each level has about 14 spaces HOWEVER, one night while parked on P2 out of 14 spaces  4 were occupied by clearly non-operational vehicles and had not been moved for years!!
-The spaces that were available were very small and most mid size cars or small SUV's had to take up a space and a half and pray that no one dings your rental car!!!

Bottomeline, good for the price especially if you do not have to park a car.

The Mediterranean Inn is a good example of "you get what you pay for." We paid about $100 a night on two week nights to stay here and the experience was average.

The Pros:
-The hotel is conveniently located north of downtown Seattle, two blocks west of the Space Needle, and on a busy street to pick up many different buses.
-Also, it is attached to a Starbucks.
-There was complimentary bottled water, coffee, and popcorn in the kitchen/microwave area.
-The staff were nice and every time we exited the elevator, the front desk people always greeted us.
-Some rooms have A/C.
-Rooftop deck with lounge chairs

Sounds good right?

The Cons:
-There is no continental breakfast.
-The elevators are ssssooooooo sssllllooooowwwww.
-Our window looked out onto their courtyard, so we only had a view of the other room's windows. Not a big deal right? Well early Thursday morning at 2am, I woke up to the most loud and obnoxious sex noises ever from another room which window faces the courtyard. Loud. Echoing. Moaning. BARF. It continued for about 20 minutes. And just when I thought, "oh ok it's over now, I can sleep...." It started again. And again. An hour later I finally fell asleep :(

Small boutique hotel in the trendy Queen Anne area. Small but clean, comfortable room, if it's not summer. Reasonably priced for location. Reminds me of some hotels in Europe I've stayed at.

Heated but not air conditioned. Parking is additional $15 a day. Wi-Fi is $5 a day extra. No restaurant (but plenty nearby). Starbuck's downstairs. Very close to the City Center and monorail service.

Skyline view from the roof is superb. Staff is friendly and helpful.

I'd stay here again in a cool season.

We stayed here for three nights, and we were very happy overall with our stay. I wouldn't say the room had a lot of size but it was very cozy and well-maintained. It was extremely affordable and included a fridge and small kitchen-type area. The room comes with popcorn, coffee and bottled water which gets replenished each night. We would take the bottled water and 2 more bottles would be in their place the next day.

Wifi is $5 a night which doesn't really add up to much unless you're there for a week. The view from the room was decent. We didn't try the breakfast and opted to go out into the city each day instead. The hotel is in a great neighborhood and is within walking distance to many things, including restaurants, the fountain, the Seattle Center, the Space Needle and the rest of downtown. I really enjoyed being able to walk to so many places. Every staff member we came into contact with was friendly and helpful. The next time I come back to Seattle I will definitely try and stay here again.

Let me start with this, I've driven 14 hours from Cali to Washington to end up with the worst hotel ever. Parking is a horrifying experience if you have a sedan because the car's underneath area will scrape like hell even with an angle. The hotel room listed was " 1 Double bed room " which means that you should get 2 beds. However, this hotel's language was different than regular English because it means in their dictionary that it is one bed with double space. So I ended up paying an extra 40$ for their vague wording to get an actual double queen beds. I guess this is my first and last visit to this hotel. In addition, the restroom's door doesn't close. Oh well, there is always a first time for everything... Enjoy Yelping.

We chose this hotel because of its location and because we got a fabulous deal on hotels.com .  If you don't have a car, you may appreciate its location especially.  We took a light rail train from SeaTac to the monorail and got off at the monorail terminal by the Needle.  The hotel is about a ten minute walk away from the Needle!  

The check in and check out process was really simple and fast.  All the people I talk to at the front desk throughout the stay were really friendly and helpful.  

The room was much smaller than I'm used to, but it's clean and stocked with most typical things you might need.  There is a DVD player so you can bring your own movies to watch and if you need plates or silverware, I believe the front desk has it on loan.  

For the price we paid this place was right on. Also, I read about people complaining of really thin walls, but I didn't hear a thing while we were there.  If you need to print your boarding passes or something, there's a really fast computer and printer in a room by the lobby, free for guests.

I stayed here back in March. It's walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants and a fantastic supermarket called Metropolitan Market. It's also a short walk to the Space Needle. It's less than a $10 cab ride to the piers or market or take a bus which is right there too.. Roof top view is beautiful where one can kick back and relax too. $15/night self-parking  garage, Friendly staff, comfortable bed, convenient location. I would definitely stay here again.

Business Center - clean, big, with nice large monitors.
Price - we got a good deal online ($70/night).
Room - in room microwave and complementary popcorn, tea, coffee (Starbucks of course!)

Staff - hipsters, who were not overly friendly by any means.
Pretty standard rooms - inner rooms look onto boring courtyard, or into the room across from you! Smaller bed (full?), no real bells and whistles.
Parking - $15/day in hotel garage, $2-3/hr on street from 8am-8pm.
No free WiFi - $4.95/day in room.

Pros: location, location, location and price is very good.
service, cleanliness, amenities like cheap laundry facilities on site, exercise room, Starbucks in lobby, room has a kitchenette, fridge, good size closet, large flat screen tv, Queen bed room is a good size. Bathroom is well laid out with ample space to set your toiletries.

Cons: room furnishings are nothing fancy. They are fine, clean and comfortable but look a little outdated. There is no air conditioning in rooms in case you happen to be in Seattle when it's actually hot outside. Room does have a ceiling fan.
Wifi cost extra at $4.99 per 24 hour period although there is free wifi in lobby courtesy of the Starbucks.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on my next trip to Seattle.

I was in town for a show at Key Arena and needed a place to stay the night.  I was skeptical at first of a non-chain hotel with such a low rate for the area, but my stay was pretty good.

Pros: Room  was spacious and clean. Bed was comfy and warm. Heating worked well - it was lightly snowing outside, but you couldn't tell.The room comes with a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave, and there's a Safeway just across the street if you need groceries aside from the complimentary Starbucks coffee, tea bags, bottled water and popcorn bag. Dick's is also right across the street, there's a Starbucks attached to the lobby, and Seattle Center is within walking distance. I didn't hear any street noise from my room on the top floor. I didn't use the wifi or the gym or the business center in the lobby, but they looked alright.

Cons: I could constantly hear the sound of running water from the bathroom, like the main pipe for the building was behind the wall. Parking garage is cramped. Anytime someone passed by in the hallway I could hear them.  Check-in time isn't until 4 PM, which is  a little inconvenient if you're arriving early or going to an early event.

Overall, it's a comfy little place to catch some sleep after a show if you don't want to speend a bundle, and I would definitely stay again.

My fiance and I just came back from a weekend stay here and loved the convenience of this hotel. Located in the heart of Lower Queen Anne's great eating and drinking spots, and an easy walk to all the Seattle Center attractions as well as the waterfront walking/jogging trail, it was perfect for car-less exploration.

We hopped off the train at King Station and took a $10 cab ride up to the hotel where the staff was warm and welcoming. Our room was pretty simple and, admittedly, not overly attractive with a less than stellar interior facing view. However, it was very clean with a large bathroom, a nice Vizio TV, and little kitchenette that included free bottled water, Starbucks coffee, and always appreciated end-of-the-night popcorn.

There was also a nice-looking little weight room, business center, adjoining access to a Starbucks coffee shop, and also a rooftop observation deck that offered wonderful panoramic views of the neighborhood and waterfront.

All-in-all, especially for the very reasonable rate we secured on Hotwire, this was a great experience. It's not plush, but for our 48-hour stay, we found it to be extremely comfortable and amazingly convenient.

I will say that I think this was a fluke experience because it was during the week in the dead of winter on a really cold night, so no one was out and about and everyone had their windows closed. The walls are thin though. Luckily we were only sharing one wall and our neighbors were nice and quiet, but every time this woman coughed we could easily hear it along with some mumblings. The noise factor is the only reason I would hesitate to stay hear again.

Yes, the rooms are small (this is not a place I would try to fit kids and parents into a one-room situation), but I like cozy rooms in cold weather. Sidenote - no fan in bathroom, eh. Everything was nicely decorated and clean. The little kitchenette with microwave, fridge, and sink is adorable. The parking lot was convenient (they do have a few spots for oversized vehicles, which was excellent as our SUV had two tall racks on it...it would not have fit in the lower levels but the space right off the entrance was perfect). The key card for the garage is about 25 ft from the entrance - you have to look for it because the staff didn't tell us it would be hard to find in the dark. Staff overall was very nice and the lobby is not too shabby.

For the price, this is a great place to stay if you want to be walking distance or short bus/cab distance to most touristy things. However, if you're like me and are irritated by noise, think twice if you're booking in the warmer months.

I was very hesitant to book this hotel and lead others in my party to book this hotel based on some of the bad reviews. After staying three nights, I have to say I made a wise decision to check this place out for myself. First of all, we got a fantastic deal on the room rates so I realize that could have a lot to do with how satisfied we were. Second, and I think one of the most important points, is that this place is excellently located. You will notice that most people point this out in their reviews. The Seattle Center/Monorail is only about a 7-10 minute walk away which gives you easy access to downtown. However, you could easily spend a couple of days just in Queen Anne and the Seattle Center alone. The area around the hotel has some great restaurants, cafes, and shops. Safeway is just on the next block if you need some snacks or amenities. The neighborhood didn't seem intimidating or dangerous at all.

The room itself was spacious enough and the bathroom was fairly large. I think microwaves and mini-fridges in rooms are always a bonus. It helps if you want to keep breakfast items in the room. Right outside our window we had a great view of the Hill. We opted for upgrading to a room with A/C although the other two in our party stayed with their a/c-less room and they said it was pleasant enough. The weather is pretty nice as of right now. I suppose the biggest upside to our upgrade was less street noise.

Every single employee that we came into contact with for the duration of our stay was incredibly polite and accommodating. They held our luggage for us both on early check-in and early check-out (we grabbed lunch after checking out and didn't want to haul our bags with us). We never had problems with service.

The rooftop deck was also perfect for views of the city and just hanging out while surrounded by the city lights at night. This place is also within walking distance to Kerry Park which was amazing for a view of Seattle's skyline.

I cannot speak for parking because we didn't have a car.

Bottom line: Do not stay here if you are expecting a five star hotel. Do stay here if you appreciate fantastic location and can be happy with just a little bit more than the basics.

A solid three star experience.  Stayed in room 306 on New Years Eve, and didn't run into any major issues.  Booked online in advance so got the room for a good price.  Didn't like the fact you had to go to the lobby to get ice, but with a large fridge to keep the beverages cold, I only had to make the one trip.  My room had A/C, but the bed was TINY.  A very tight, and frankly uncomfortable squeeze for two adults.  Overall however, the Mediterranean Inn gave us good value for our money, and if my usual hotels were booked, I'd consider another stay here.

We stayed here on 7/15 and 7/16 in room 216, and overall we enjoyed our stay.

The best thing about this hotel is its prime location if you want to hoof it to some nearby tasty eateries and Seattle Center, which contains tons of activities that can easily fill your day.

As for the hotel itself, our bathroom was spotless, the sheets were clean, but I'm thinking the comforter and blanket was not, due to the fact that my companion found a sewing needle laying in between the dated blankets.  The light fixtures could've been cleaned (I don't really care for dead bugs being illuminated of their sad demise) and the switches and thermostat could've been wiped down to remove all the food fingerprints that the previous occupants left.  Another downside, was that there is no air conditioning.  If it's warm, like the days we were there, the rooms will be stuffy and you'll gained no relief from the elements in your room.
Overall the experience was adequate.  I don't know if I would go out of my way to stay here again, but I wouldn't mind it either, due to its great location.  

their paid WiFi and head over to the coffee shop next door to use theirs free.

If you can...
Get a room that faces in the direction of the Seattle Center, or you'll windup with a lovely view like ours.....parking lots and more parking lots.  If you have time, venture to the roof deck where there's a great view of the city.

We stayed here for a week starting 2012.0703 and enjoyed our stay.  We were visiting our daughter who lives in the Magnolia area of Seattle and found this hotel to be conveniently located to her house and the Space Needle area (it is only a few blocks from the Space Needle).

The room was decently sized, with a bay window upholstered bench, King size bed, desk, microwave, and refrigerator.  There is a Safeway market a half a block away so if you don't feel like eating out at the many nearby good restaurants, you can bring food back to the room.

There is a rooftop desk that has great views of Seattle and Puget Sound.

Parking and Internet service is extra, but they have a weekly rate for both that brought the price to reasonable levels.

Free water bottles are available for guests at the front desk.

For the Independence Day holiday, they gave out small flags to guests!  A very nice touch!

The room rate was $148/day (based on a week's stay) + parking ($50/week), internet ($15/week) + taxes (an expensive $25.76/day!!) + an "Energy / Utility Assessment fee ($4.28/day).  Instead of all the extra fees (Energy ???), they should just make the base price reflect them and keep it simple!

Nice place & a great location . The girl that checked us in was wonderful , very friendly, & helpful. The room was nice but it was on the 1st floor next to the street. We got hot & opened the window but between the traffic & the partygoers out & about until 2am it was pretty noisy.  Next time we would be pickier about room location. Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

What a delightful hotel experience we had! I have stayed at hundreds of hotels in my lifetime, several here in Seattle. This was a clean, simple, friendly hotel with lots of excellent features:
The desk staff was super friendly and helpful. When we arrived hours early, we were accommodated and given a nice room right away. I didn't really like the room, as it had no view. I asked if we could have something on a higher floor, and I a few hours we were moved to a wonderful view room.  So easy!
The rooftop deck was so pleasant. Great views in every direction and comfortable seating.
The beds were astoundingly comfortable, I was very pleasantly surprised. I've stayed in far more expensive hotels where the beds were just not comfortable. Nice bathroom, kitchenette, great little room set up.
The location is ideal, many restaurants within just a few blocks, and a few minutes walk to Seattle Center. Buses stop right at the door, and it's an easy ride to downtown Seattle.
There is a small gym in the building, and a Starbucks attached to the lobby for that early cup of coffee.
Not a thing to complain about here! They even set me up with a limo to the airport that was far cheaper than a cab.

I just loved this little hotel.  It had a little individual charm.  I was there in December so not having air conditioning was not an issue for us.  We did have 2 ceiling fans in our room and all of the windows could be opened, so there would only be a small period of time when that would be a problem.  

The location is excellent as indicated in the other reviews.  There are tons of places to eat very close by and the rest of the city is easily accessible.  There is also a Safeway across the street and and a Metropolitan Market around the corner which is nice if you want to use the kitchenette.

Everyone at the hotel was so nice, even before we arrived.  I spoke at length with the assistant manager about the best way to accommodate her wheelchair and stall have room for both my 92 year old mother and myself.  We didn't get the handicapped accessible room because it only had one bed but the double queen room had ample room and, as a compromise, they gave us a really nice shower chair to use.  Every single employee I came in contact with was friendly and courteous, from the maintenance people to the service staff.  When they delivered something to my room I gave the lady a small tip and she tried to give it back!

I was a little surprised when, at check-in, the clerk asked me what 2 days (we were there a week) I wanted housekeeping, but I ended up rather liking that as I didn't have to worry about being out of the room so they could clean it.  That was a plus for me so I didn't have to get my Mom up and out every day.  I am pretty neat anyway, so that was not a problem.  When I asked for extra trash bags they offered to clean the room more often if I wanted.  

The rooms have a kitchenette with a sink, fridge, and microwave.  I asked for dishes and utensils and also got a hot plate with a frying pan and small pot, a dish drainer, dish soap, and a sponge.  

They provide complimentary coffee, tea, bottled water, and popcorn and replenished it when the room was cleaned.

The beds were really comfy and the had nice comforters.  The towels are soft, fluffy and bath sheet size.  Water pressure was good and hot water was plentiful.

$4.99/day for wi-fi at a nice hotel is very reasonable and they have a weekly rate of $25.  I have paid much more at other hotels.  If you don't want to pay the wi-fi fee, there is free computer use in the lobby.

For coffee lovers you can get to Starbucks through the lobby without going outside.

This may not have been the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed at but it made me feel comfortable and welcome and was very reasonably priced for this area.  The only thing that would make it more perfect would be if they allowed dogs!

I stayed here while going to a training class.  It was convenient to the training location, and a great deal ($50 less/night than the only one closer).  I found the front desk staff to be helpful and friendly.  Since I knew about the parking and the dishes going in, it was no surprise, and calling down got me a set of dishes to use within 3 minutes.

I do wish the wifi was free.  The max speed on it, however was pretty decent...but every once in a while, it would slow down big time or hang - more access points may resolve that.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the view was nice, being able to open the window and get a breeze blowing was wonderful (especially since I was a bit overheated on arrival).  The heater, when I had it running at night, wasn't overly noisy.  The room was pretty quiet as well, good insulation.

My only service objection for the trip was that, although they give you a couple of complimentary bottles of water at check-in, I didn't drink one of them the first night, and Housekeeping took it away...ostensibly to replace it with an ever growing number of bottles of shampoo, lotion, and body wash.  Seriously, 1-2 bottles for the stay is totally fine.

Working for a 4 diamond hotel property myself, I think that, while the Mediterranean Inn has some areas of improvement it could pursue, they gave good value for money, and I look forward to returning in a few weeks.

It's laughable. Pay the extra $30 bucks and go stay at the Hilton, you won't have the smell of bleach and fabric softener from a laundry duct pouring into your room through the window. Bad decor. Uncomfortable beds. Rude, condescending staff. Don't bother.

An A-OK stay with a convenient location at a reasonable price.

The parking garage is located beneath the hotel. A room card is required so check-in first. Parking in the garage comes with a $15 fee. If you're coming late and leaving early, you could escape the fees and park on the street. The parking garage is cramped and we scraped the bottom of our car on the "ramp" each time we exited the garage.

My immediate impression upon walking into the room is that it's a little outdated. The bedding looks a little on the older side. Our room came with a flat screen and a mini kitchenette. It also had a ceiling fan and the windows opened up.

Complimentary bottled water (in a mini fridge), a bag of popcorn (there's a microwave) and Starbucks/Tazo coffee and tea. Nice touches.

Has everything you need and everything is clean, it's just not over the top fancy.

I was only here for one night, but it was one loooong night. I was pretty tired when I got back to the room and all I wanted to do was sleep. Had I known I was only going to get about 1 hour of sleep, I would saved my money and just slept on the couch of a local family member's house, which is what I did for the first night I was in town. The room was VERY loud all night: paper thin walls (thank you people upstairs for the constant noise until 4 am), some unidentifiable/annoying humming sound, ceiling fan noise (I couldn't turn off the fan because the room was super stuffy). If it weren't for my ear buds playing "calming" music in my ears, I probably would have lost it.

The only people I might recommend this place to are those that know they can sleep anywhere regardless of their surroundings. We all know someone who is capable of sleeping like a baby while upside down, over a boulder, with fire alarms going off all night, with flies swarming around his or her head, etc.

In all fairness (hence, the TWO stars), I had no issues with the staff, room cleanliness, or location.

Nice rooms, good location shame about the wifi.

It was a great stay rooms are nice and roomy, nice to get a fridge and a coffee machine. Bed was comfy and clean, Bathroom was spacious and again clean.

They are located outside the city centre but within a long walk or a short walk to the space needle.

Head up to the roof for an amazing view over Seattle.

The only down sides were the lack of free wifi and no milk to have with my tea or coffee. It is located right next door to a Starbucks which allows for a nice early morning coffee and a chance to check e-mails.

I took to using the Safeway next door to get a few supplies and it meant i could get some milk for my tea.

Everything I was asking for in a last minute, affordable hotel - close enough to the amenities of downtown without being downtown.

Visiting for a wedding, I booked a room for the GF and me on Expedia when staying with the newlyweds was no longer in my budget picture. I had checked the reviews on Yelp, acknowledged the short distance to the wedding venue, saw the reasonable price (compared to many "nicer" downtown hotels), and booked it with a rental car for two nights.

Average hotel room size that included a small kitchenette (sink and fridge)
Courteous and helpful staff
Complimentary coffee and water in your room
Easy access to underground parking
Great location -  Walking distance to plenty of coffee shops, bars and late night burger joints. Quick drive to downtown and airport.

Extra fee for parking (parking costs money everywhere, though)
Extra fee for wifi
No outlet in the bathroom (difficult for GF to blow dry her hair)

We recently spent two weeks at the Mediterranean Inn while in town for the PAX convention.

Our flight came in way, way too early for check-in. The first deal clerk helped us by putting our bags in a holding room so we could kill some time. (Breakfast at the Shanty and a caramel macchiato at Starbucks...)

When we were just nearing sleep-deprived madness in the lobby, Leeann(sp?) got us checked in early. My hero!

Our room was tidy and armed with complimentary water, tea, coffee and popcorn. We also had a mini fridge, kitchen sink, and microwave.

There wasn't AC, but we visited during a cool time, and there was a ceiling fan if we were warm. Shower water was hothothot (this is a great thing.)

So overall:
*friendly, helpful staff
*free computer/internet use in the lobby
*great location
*reasonably priced
*good amenities for a longer stay
*has a weekly/discounted rate for Internet and parking!
*$40 town car to the airport

Thanks, Mediterranean Inn. It was a great stay!

The hotel is in a great location, but the problem is the room size and the nauseating smell of smoke throughout the entire building. My boyfriend and I purchased a living social deal, and while the price was great considering we only stayed one night, we left smelling like Marlboros, Winstons, and Camels! Our clothing, (including the clothing that never left our suitcases) were completely soiled in smoke. If you are a smoker and don't mind the smell of cigarettes this is the perfect place to stay. Otherwise I suggest finding another deal...

At the risk of not being able to stay here any more due to no vacancy, I am compelled to share our visit with whomever uses Yelp. Pardon the disarray of my thoughts but it's been a few weeks since our stay so the memories are in one stirring pot of fondness. The Inn is in a perfection location for us. Extremely close to restaurants, bars, stores, clubs, the Seattle Center and downtown. We walked the easy thirty minutes to Pike Place Market and downtown. So many places to eat we ate twice at one place. The underground parking was extremely convenient and safe. They have parking for compacts and SUVs. The staff was friendly, energetic, and very helpful. They'll call you a cab if you need one. The coffee, tea, and popcorn the maids leave in the room each day is a fantastic treat. Plus they leave bottled water in the fridge which was nice to carry around on our walks. The décor is gorgeous especially the Chihuly bowls in the lobby are magnificent. Plus you can visit the Chihuly display at the Seattle Center. The elevator goes from the parking garage and the carts were helpful to move our luggage to and from our room. The Starbucks downstairs has it all, and it was nice to get a coffee and sit in the comfortable computer room researching stuff to do and see. The room was clean and very comfortable. The bed was heavenly and thanks to the AC/heater and quiet atmosphere we slept solid every night. There's are soda/candy machines downstairs and a laundry room down the hall from the fitness room. Though two of the pieces of cardio equipment were broken there other two were useful. I walked the stairs all the time to offset the eating and drinking we did. There are two grocery stores within two blocks which made it very easy to get anything we needed. The only thing we didn't like was the fact that we had to leave and return to reality. This is our vacation destination for these and many other reasons. But I thought someone may benefit from our experience. I don't see how anyone wouldn't enjoy themselves staying here. Enjoy!

I needed a clean, safe, inexpensive place to stay for a few days while exploring Seattle, and this place was all those things.  Very friendly front desk staff.  The room was clean with new bedding and carpet. Tiny kitchen area to make drinks included a small refrigerator. Bathroom was spotless and large enough.      Location was convenient to downtown either walking or by bus. Many nice restaurants nearby.  Very close to two good grocery stores.  They scheduled a private car to take me back to the airport which worked out well and was slightly cheaper than taking a cab. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay.  The hotel had clean, very quiet rooms.  The staff was helpful and knowledgeable.  There's a parking garage under the hotel, so we didn't have to park on the street.  The location is fantastic - adjacent to Seattle Center, but far enough away to be part of the slightly slower-moving Queen Anne district.

Thought this place was really decent and would stay again.

-friendly staff
-clean, especially the bathroom
-super convenient location and easy to find
-bike and helmet rentals for $5!
-shared rooftop.. Pretty cool!

Low lights:
-Parking costs $18
-they give out free microwavable popcorn which might seem like a highlight but it made the whole place smell like fake butter which is kinda gross
-showers had no water pressure
-they charge you $5/day for wifi

Important: be extra careful to close your door as they aren't weighted and balanced to close behind you. We stumbled back to the hotel at around 3am and found so many doors open in the middle of the night.

But overall I would stay there again for sure!! We got a good price on Priceline and for similarly priced hotels this one offered great value.

This is an excellent location. QA is a cool area, and you are within walking distance to a lot of neat restaurants and shopping. The space needle and all of those city center attractions are also a short ten minute walk. You can even take the monorail downtown to the market and things like that.

It has a million dollar view. You can go on the rooftop and see the space needle and water.

The price is also right. They'll charge you $18 night for parking, but the nightly rates on the rooms are low.

The Bad:

It's old, and you can tell. Paint peeling in places and the furniture is just a little worn. Not terrible, but not new hotel either.

There is no AC. Yes, the windows open, but only one of ours had a screen, so it was blistering hot all night. I wish I knew deluxe rooms had it when I booked. And with the window open, you also get to hear the traffic and drunks from the Key Arena walking home. It's a catch 22.

The bed was horrible. It seemed a lot smaller than a normal queen, but it dipped down in the middle. Woke up very sore.

The water pressure is nonexistent. It's tough to shower and rinse off.

Parking is expensive. They have an underground lot, but it sets you back $18 a night. That's downtown hotel, valet parking expensive.

The place is so loud it is unbelievable. As if the outside noise wasn't enough, you can hear every one of your neighbors. It wasn't just our particular room either, as people staying on the other side of the hotel said the exact same thing. You will definitely know each time your neighbor goes to the bathroom, and it will wake you up if it happens to be at 3am.


The ONLY reason this is 2 stars and not 1 is the location and price. If I paid more I'd be less happy. If you aren't planning on spending a lot of time in the room, this is a maybe acceptable hotel.

On my last couple of trips back to Seattle, I've had the chance to sample two very different places to stay.

The first was this hotel, or Inn as they prefer. The other was the Courtyard by Marriott, near Lake Union. Two very different Four Star experiences and Seattle locations.

The Mediterranean Inn has that European feel which you cannot find in many hotels in the US, The lone exception might be the Sofitel. sofitel.com/gb/usa/index…

I like The Med for what it's not. It's not one of those fifteen floor concrete cookie cutter hotels you see everywhere. It truly is an Inn. The staff works really hard on creating the right sort of ambiance to fit this very European structure. By the way, the parking is also very European, in that the spaces are tight and cost a little extra.

Outside it's doors, you have the night life of Lower Queen Anne and the nearby Seattle Center and Space Needle. You also have that culinary northwest hamburger establishment across the street, which is Dick's.  LOL   yelp.com/biz/dicks-drive…

Along with Ivars, it's a must stop.  There's nearby Metropolitan Market, if you want to pickup some fresh groceries for your room.  There's bookstores and record (yes, record) shops. You also have several upscale restaurants and watering holes along Mercer or Roy.  All within walking distance.  

If you don't mind a cab ride, you might consider visiting Fremont for the Lenin statue and the Scandinavia Troll. yelp.com/biz/vladimir-le…  Or, take one of the many buses downtown, as I have in the past..  So much to see and do right outside your door. There's even a Starbucks just off the lobby.

One note to summer travelers, The Med has no air conditioning. This is not a big problem given Seattle's mild climate.  Just be aware if you're traveling here in mid July or August. We had no AC when we lived here either. The cool northwest winds blow through each evening around sunset. So bring a jacket.

I would not stay here again. The loading zone in front of the hotel is a lie. We parked to get our bags out, went inside and they said we'd be fine to check in. Go back outside and got a $45 parking fine from the city. We said something to the hotel and they just said to have the city call them. Seriously? Ya you can imagine how they took that. The rooms are very loud. You can hear every car that goes by, and there's no ac. Also they overbook, so even if you have a reservation you may not have a room. Plus the internet connection in the rooms is almost non existent. Will not come back.

This hotel is in a great location, staff was mostly friendly, Emily is fantastic! She was always smiling and always pleasant. We were on the 3rd floor and didn't hear a thing for the 8 nights we were there. The only time there was noise was when someone had their window open and their voices carried out, other than that we had a quiet stay.  The room was a little small but it was clean and  I didn't feel like I needed to walk around with my socks and shoes on all the time. They have a laundry facility on site which was super helpful! The kitchenette that had a sink, microwave and small fridge was also super helpful. The rooftop deck was amazing! Great view any time of day.
Wi-Fi was spotty.
The parking garage is tight but you can manage to park. We learned a couple days before we left that upon exiting the garage we needed to stay as far left as possible in order to not scrap the bottom of the car on the speed bump. Yikes. Once we figured that out there was no more cringing upon exiting.

I would stay here again, the overall experience was great despite some of the other reviews.

The room comes with a small kitchenette and a MASSIVE bar ledge that can firmly hold two rocks glasses and nothing more. The kitchenette features a sink and a TABLETOP microwave that looks like it had been uppercutted into the bottom of the cabinet then drilled in place. This beautifully displays the galvanized metal underside of the microwave complete with dusty ventilation grate, dangling cord and the feet with non-skid pads. Really puttin' those to good use. If I didn't know better I would say this master craftsmanship was done by Bob Vila himself.

The miniature refrigerator is held at a frigid 57 degrees fahrenheit, so if you're one of those weirdos that prefers to drink cold water or a germaphobe that tries to prevent your food from rotting into a cesspool of bacterial compost you will have to manually adjust the temperature.

If you plan on eating food using only your face -- you are all set, but if you like plates and silverware you'll have to ask for them as the cabinets are for display rather than storing plates and silverware.. The glassware must have been some paradoxical joke since it smelled like windex, but was riddled with calcium deposits and had collected more unique fingerprints on it than Madonna.

The rooms are overall antiquated, and by antiquated I mean ugly. The carpet looks like it was repurposed from the arcade room in a movie theater. The closet has a curtain instead of a door and is held up by a glorified shower curtain rod. The chair appears to have been borrowed from the lobby at a mausoleum.

The light bulbs in my room are a hodge-podge variety of standard lighting and natural lighting that blend together to give a strange greenish hue to the framed pictures in the room -- both of which appear to have been the printed design on the side of a box of kleenex from the 90's.

The bed sheets have been tucked under the corners of the mattress in a way that has permanently turned the bed into a concave bowl rendering the bed uncomfortable from any angle.

The pillows are about 9 inches tall when laying flat and feel like they're made of some type of tactical foam that, over the duration of the night, will cause your neck to bend so far that you can lick your own sternum, which would be impressive if you sleep your stomach.

The thermostat dial reads 55 degrees Fahrenheit when, in fact, my room is a constant 85 degrees, and they took the Amish route with air conditioning - opening the window.

The bathroom was probably the most functional part of the room. During my three week stay I was given one roll of toilet paper, which was not restocked until I went down to the front desk and acquired more. It was like a treasure hunt, but instead of finding treasure I was given the privilege of wiping myself clean of my own feces.

The shower head is not centered in the shower and has a miserable directional range, so hopefully you're okay with being pelted in the side of the face with intermittently sputtering water. To make shower-time even more fun you can utilize a heavily soiled non-slip mat for the bottom of your shower. If you are so inclined to acquire plantar warts or shuffle around in the sedimentary waste that washed out of some strangers arm pits and became permanently encrusted in the discolored rubber mat you can have the time of your life with that.

The light switch in the bathroom is on the wrong side of the door. It's frustrating.

Another practical joke they play on you involves house keeping. Upon arrival you will be asked which day you would like to have the house keeper clean your room. They are quite literal when they say 'day' because in three week duration the house keeper only came once -- on the wrong day. Epic lols guys. Good job.

If you want free wi-fi you can either go to McDonald's or get bent, because this place treats wi-fi like Mad-Max treated gasoline.

The breakfast menu reminds me of the Cheesecake Factory's massive menu, except the exact opposite. The Mediterranean Inn offers you nothing. Not even a genetically modified banana.

I would highly suggest the Homewood Suites a few blocks away. They are fantastic.

It's 90F and this hotel has no AC and one ice maker. And, only one small window opens. It's only slightly better than a youth hostel. Yeah, yeah...rooftop deck. Big deal. Every corner in Seattle has a great view. For the same price, I could have stayed at the Hilton. Live and learn...

Great customer service, location, and amenities.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed prior to and post our Alaska cruise at the hotel. The hotel even arranged a shuttle to drop us off at the pier and we used it again to return back.

Bryan W. Exceeded our expectations on customer service (as did the entire hotel staff). Prior to making my reservations I read how easy public transportation from the airport was. So when doing the reservation I asked further on the ease. He expressed if not carrying a lot of luggage it was quite easy, giving me directions. Then going above to email me step by step directions.

So for travelers, in brief exit airport to light rail, take to last stop, then elevator to top floor of the mall. Monorail to its stop which is the Science Center (Space Needle). From there a 10 minute walk. Cost for one way. - 2 people was not even 10 bucks, and only took slightly over an hour. Saving us lots if we'd have done airport shuttles.

Luck would have it that Bryan was working when we checked in, remembered who I was and treated us like old friends which felt like personalized service. Even passing along some restaurants with in steps of the hotel for us to grab something. The location is a bonus with so many options with in walking distance for worn out travelers.

The amenities of coffee, popcorn, a microwave and fridge were all enjoyed in the room. Which was comfortable for 2 people with lots of space. Rather than visit the Starbucks attached to the hotel we walked across the street to the Safeway grocery store and grabbed some breakfast and snacks to enjoy on the rooftop.

The rooftop is a must at sunset for incredible views. The lounge chairs make for a comfy setting.

Bikes that could be rented for an entire day with lock and saddle bag as well as mandatory helmets were all well enjoyed. Though check to ensure they are in good shape as I noticed a few with soft tires and one missing a rear break. The city is bike friendly and easy to get around and bike racks were plentiful.

With its location, comfortable rooms and amenities one could look past not getting free in - room wi-fi ( gratis in the lobby).

Overall if we return to Seattle, we would with out a doubt stay once again, and since returning home have been letting friends know how great of a hotel it is.

Stayed here just for the afternoon during the Torchlight Parade downtown. Didn't stay overnight. Overnight parking in the underground gated parking is $16. Otherwise there is plenty of street parking & a small parking alot alongside the hotel.

The room we had was super small. The room was the same size as the bathroom. I'm surprised that it had room for a small fridge & sink in the room.

It is walking distance to the 1st Ave, so I'm sure that's why the association chose that hotel. And since we weren't staying overnight, it sufficed.

The staff was... eh. They need to definitely smile more. I had my crown on since I was going to be on a float & they kept staring at me with blank faces. Made me feel stupid, I mean if you're going to stare at least smile when I make eye-contact. It's only polite. Just sayin'

2 night here with my young son and we love the location, close to the Space Needle and a fair walk to Pike Place and Aquarium.

The room is small and fairly clean. 5th floor facing the courtyard(?) but reading the other reviews glad we did. First night was really warm in our room, second night we are leaving the window open...we will see how the noise is. We are staying during the week so no late night partiers...I hope!

Not really impressed with the kitchenette that consists of a small coffee maker, small microwave and a fridge. Thank goodness I pack well otherwise no napkins, plates or utensils. Sorry there are utensils of the plastic kind.

The bathroom is what grossed me out and will likely not stay here again...opened and used toiletries and a few strands of hair (def not mine, too long) in the tub. Why do they bother with the stickers that indicate the shampoo and etc aren't used if the cleaning staff is just going to close it back up and put it back??

Also not impressed with paid wifi since most other hotels offer it for free!

I love the neighbourhood and will stay again sadly, it won't be at the Med Inn.

I really love the location of this hotel... And for the money you can't go wrong.

The rooms are little bit small... But newly renovated. Everything is nice and clean.

There is a Starbucks located in the hotel so that makes it convenient. Parking is an issue in that they have a garage underneath the hotel... A little complicated to get into and the spaces are small.

Plus they charge $18 a night to park. I also don't like that they charge for Wi-Fi.

The staff was friendly... And stay at the hotel is great. I would definitely stay here again.

The only other thing I would say that was negative... If you are driving in and you have a car... There are spaces outside that is supposed to be for loading and unloading. But the hotel stuff does not watch this and many people park to go to the Starbucks.

So it's really frustrating when you want to check in or check out and can't find a parking place to do it

For the price and location, definitely a great deal. Our room was clean and newly renovated and the price was exceptional. Booking on kayak.com we found a deal that was the equivalent to staying at a place on Aurora Ave. The staff was friendly and made the experience above average. It is super weird though that they still charge for wifi, what is this 2002?

No frills, clean renovated rooms at an exceptional value.

Well-equipped gym.
Complimentary bottled water and popcorn.
Kitchenette: sink, fridge and microwave.
BEAUTIFUL rooftop patio.
Starbucks in the lobby.
WiFi that works.

Way too tiny parking spaces.
Key cards stopped working the morning we checked out, before we checked out.

I would definitely stay here again.

I like this place a lot. So let me break down the ins and outs, the good and the bad, and how ultimately it's a highly rated joint.

First things first, the rooftop. Man, when it wasn't raining it was beautiful to sit up there and look out onto the water and the Space Needle. A definite must when there.

Next, I like the neighborhood. Good public transpo, fun vibe, great food and coffee, it was a great intro to Seattle.

Finally, they handle stuff. We had a little problem arise on our stay, and not only was the front desk guy incredibly nice, our follow up conversations with management showed they took our concerns seriously and went out of their way to resolve the situation.

So a great view, a fun neighborhood, and customer service when it counts- I couldn't have asked for more in my visit to Seattle!

The service here is great but the rooms aren't all that.

Once I stepped into the lobby, I instantly felt welcomed. The staff at the front desk are extremely hospitable and helpful. I checked in and the guy at the front desk told me I was in luck because I got the best room. I was excited as I was taking the elevator to the top floor so I could finally unpack and check out this great room the front desk staff told me about but once I swiped my key in and opened the door I was like "IS THIS IT??!". If that was the best room throughout the whole hotel then I don't want to know what the other rooms look like. I could barely sleep because there was a huge crater in the bed and the huge dip made it difficult to position myself and sleep. I could also hear noises from outside through the window even though I closed it. Also- the ice machine was inconveniently located in the lobby. I had to walk down 6 flights of stairs or wait a while for the elevator.
If you want to stay at a hotel with a cheap motel feel to it then this is the spot.

This hotel was in a super convenient location, so I loved that. Super close to the city center! Plus it was attached to Starbucks! But, the view from the roof was my favorite part! The price was a little high, but for a hotel room in the city, what do you expect. The rooms seemed a little outdated and had no air conditioning, so that kinda sucked. But the windows opened and it had a ceiling fan, so it was manageable. Oh, and they had free fruit water in the lobby, that sold the place for me. :) Just avoid the elevator, its the slowest elevator of all time. Take the stairs.
We stayed here 2 nights and would stay again.

It wasn't... horrible?

Stayed here via Hotel Tonight.  Location is decent in Queen Anne, and room was comfortable.

Having said that -- there's just not that much to, as they say, write home about.  The room was very bland (as in: "it feels like somebody decided to just throw a bed and desk in there").  Room came with a microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and free bottled water and popcorn, which is a plus.  On the negative side, the wifi costs $5/month (sorry, these days, wifi is pretty much a dealbreaker for me, since there are so many value chains that offer it for free).  Also, AC controls had, well, no control.  I eventually made do with the ceiling fan, and the windows open (although they opened out, and were very loud due to the ridiculously windy conditions that day).

Several of my fellow Yelpers mentioned paid parking; I parked on the street, so didn't have to deal with that, obviously.  

Given the atmosphere, the signage, and other factors... it feels like this was formerly a chain hotel (Holiday Inn, Courtyard, or the like) turned into an independent hotel.  And that's perfectly fine - as long as it's being maintained.  It's just... OK.

I've been meaning to write this review since late December, when I stayed here for a night. My partner and I stayed here while on a cross country road trip in which we were moving to Vancouver, BC. We just wanted a nice, comfortable, quiet, place to rest our heads for the night. Unfortunately, this isn't what we got.

I made the rookie mistake of getting a good deal on orbitz (or maybe it was travelocity) and not considering that parking and wifi were not included. I was a little shocked when the girl at the front desk asked if we wanted to buy wifi access in our room. Come on people. It is 2014 and you are charging for wifi! The parking was also an additional $15 or so--- keep that in mind when you are comparing prices.

There is not a free breakfast, either.

Now, I would have given this hotel four stars probably, if it weren't for having close to the worst night of sleep in my life. The people in the room next to us were in some sort of domestic violence altercation for about 3 hours between 1 and 4 am. I had to phone the front desk at least twice. The front desk person did come knock on their door, but the drunken screaming, crying, and throwing of things continued. Our sleep was completely ruined, plus it was kind of terrifying. I think the hotel should have called the police immediately, but they did not. The front desk people were probably scared too!

The next morning while checking out, they asked how our stay was and I said our sleep was ruined and why. They apologized, but did not offer us any sort of token of apology. I know it wasn't necessarily the hotel's fault that there were loud drunk people being violent next door to us, but if I cared about having repeat customers and meeting peoples' expectations of a good hotel experience I might have tossed us a gift certificate for a future stay, or something other than just saying "oh, that's too bad."

Bottom line, the place seems nice in many ways, but watch out for hidden prices and know that you might be kept up all night by other guests.

This inn/hotel is so adorable. Location is perfect right next to downtown and shopping. Front desk staff was so polite and helpful.

Price was worth it!

This was perhaps the worse hotel I had stayed in besides the Wyndham hotel in Philadelphia.

Their double bed rooms do not have A/C and there's no sign of it inside the room, but I was told later that they do indicate this on their website, unless you are reading real careful every little detail when booking a room, which most of us do not do. You would be stuck in a room that felt like hell. The room that I was given was facing a residential apartment building so I couldn't change clothes so freely as neighbors may see me. Also their heat thermometer didn't work accurately so be ready to be blown off at any time with the weirdest hot temperature.

The house cleaning was the worse. They only made one bed out of the entire time I was there (few days) I had not left any sign on top of the bed indicating that I did not want my bed to be made. the only time they decided to make the bed, they left hair between the sheets. The room was never vacuumed and they didn't even care to leave soap and new towels, though clearly I had left the towels on the floor.

Front desk was nice but when it came to bringing up my dissatisfaction with my stay in there, I was approached by a very snooty Ray/Jay who loves scuba diving and who clearly lacks customer service. He never apologized and never showed some graceful tact to say I apologize for the inconvenience, instead I had to deal with a very snooty arrogant type of service.

If you are staying on the second and third floor be prepared to be waken up by the thrash and recycle collectors around 4:30am.

It's 2014 and you are still charging for WIFI. wow

The beds were nice, but for 250 dollars a night this place is not worth it. I felt like I was in a cheap hotel on Aurora Avenue, actually worse because the hotels I have stayed in had never been as dirty filthy as this one.

They have a nice roof deck, but which hotel in Seattle doesn't?! so it didn't impress me. oh and is a non smoking deck.

Should be called the Arm Pits of the Mediterranean Inn.

We stayed here before on our first visit to Seattle before we decided to move here. The location and the price can't be beat - we got a great deal on hotels.com , so definitely check deals before booking. The staff was pretty rude and they charge extra for parking, but we still fell in love with Seattle in spite of our meh hotel experience so 3 stars seems fair.

This is a great hotel with rooms at a great price.  To set your expectations, lets get this across right away: this is not a posh fancy deluxe vacation resort; but for the price you will not find a better hotel, with nicer accommodations or service in Seattle proper.  It is a 3 minute walk from Key arena, so if you're in town to see a show, this is REALLY a nice spot.  It is within walking distance of some great resturants, and a cab from here to Pike Place or the Down Town scene is pretty cheap.  My wife and I really got a good nights sleep, and enjoyed the whole experience.  This is an awesome spot.

I had a tremendously difficult time getting from LAX to SEA and then the hotel. I got separated from my group and had to find my way alone when my flight was delayed. I was given incorrect info by google maps (just before my phone died) on the best way to reach the hotel via the convenient link lite train from SEA. The day was a living lesson in Murphy's Law. Until I finally set foot in this hotel.

The staff was so helpful. Checking in, Timothy could tell what kind of day I had clearly had and immediately made me feel welcome and calm. I knew the unlucky streak was finally over.  They gave me complimentary wifi for the week I was here and let me know how to get to where I was going to meet up with my group. Normally the wifi is only free in the lobby and biz center but the nightly rate was very reasonable - just under $5 per night.

Plus the roof deck (open all hours) has gorgeous views and the rooms come with a microwave and minifridge - not the kind full of overpriced booze and snacks either - the kind you can use to make yourself at home while you're here. There's also complimentary popcorn, strabucks and tea int he room. And there's a local market less than a block away to fill that mini fridge.

There's also a free gym, open all hours just off the lobby. It's small but has what you need to get a good workout in on the road. And it's never crowded. I was able to use the treadmill for over  1.5 hours every morning, and never made anyone wait.

The staff is awesome and makes sure you have what you need! Service is on par with any of the luxury hotels - Beverly Wilshire, Peninsula, Four Seasons, etc.Will def stay here again next time I'm in Seattle.

We stayed here for our entire stay in Seattle.
I was a bit worried based on the reviews. However, there was groupon deal for this hotel, and it was cheapest deal with decent ratings that I could find.

+Daily $5 bike rental. Easily found the Elliot bay trail and biked through parks next to the water. Beautiful! We biked to Sunday brunch at Palisades which was along the trail.
+20 minute walk to Pike market
+easy 10 minute walk to Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly)
+many restaurants to walk to at night (pho, hot pot)
+Safeway right next to hotel if you want to grab snacks and drinks
+the front desk was nice and accommodating. They let us 'check in' and leave our bags in a back room after we checked out of the hotel on our last day. This allowed us to walk to the Seattle Center so we could adventure a bit more before we headed to the airport.
+the front desk also reserved a driver who conveniently took us to the airport (I believe it was $40 + tip).
+gym was small but had clean towels, cold water dispenser, and great chest & back machines. Of course also had the usual cardio machines as well.\
+small kitchenette with microwave and fridge

-elevators were indeed slow and I think we were stuck going up and down a couple times. We just ditched the elevator and used the stairs the majority of the time.
-lobby area had coffee and tea everyday, however, was empty a lot of the times. I did not see the fruit water though.
-water pressure is on the low side

All in all, very satisfied with our stay here. Walking distance to the tourist sites. Nice comfortable bed. Very convenient

No AC in the room freaked me out at first because it has been really hot when I was walking around outside but they keep the windows open and it brings in fresh air. That mixed with the ceiling fan made it really nice.  

My room had a day bed in the window and a really pretty view of Seattle and the water.  The windows staying open was nice because I could hear the seagulls in the afternoon.

The location is convenient and the rooftop is a nice place to hang out and have some drinks and enjoy the views. There is a small gym, some cucumber water, a computer room, and a built in Starbucks.  

I think it's annoying you have to pay extra to have access to the internet, but that's my only complaint.

Hotels around downtown Seattle are pricey but we were able to get a good deal on Orbitz for Mediterranean Inn!

The hotel staff was very professional and we enjoyed our stay. The staff graciously held onto our luggage for us before check-in and after check-out. The check-in and check-out process was a breeze. There is iced water and spa water available in the lobby.

I was extremely pleased with our room. We didn't pay for fancy and didn't expect fancy but the room was large, the bed comfortable, and most importantly--the place was super clean. The bathroom seemed newly renovated and we were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was (since a lot of hotel bathrooms tend to be tiny these days...). Our window faced the parking lot/streets but the room had a safe, an iron and ironing board, microwave, coffee maker, and a sink. We only stayed one night and was out for most of the day so we didn't need wi-fi (from the other reviews, it seems you have to pay for that).    

The only things we wish were different are 1) an earlier check-in time (check-in is at 4 PM) and 2) the hallway walls were thicker so you don't hear hallway conversations in the morning.

All in all, we had a great stay. Mediterranean Inn is only a few blocks away from the Space Needle and the monorail that takes you to downtown Seattle. There is a Starbucks and other food places nearby so the location's fantastic!

I found an AMAZING deal on Groupon for this place, and it was recommended to me, so this made my hotel decision quite easy for my trip to Seattle. All of the other hotels I was looking at were either out of my price range, had awful reviews, or were all the way over by SeaTac Airport.

This place was simple, nothing fancy, but clean and very convenient. It is in a good location, just a short walk to the Space Needle. The staff was very nice and helpful to us. One thing I thought was odd though was online it said that there was a free continiential breakfast, however that was not the case. This was not a big deal though, as there is a Safeway right near the hotel. Plus they had free apples in the fitness center, woo!

The view from the roof is incredible! The skyline looks awesome. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area, I was satisfied with my stay there.

Very, very pleased with my stay there this week.  Quaint hotel, nice and clean and wonderfully helpful staff ~ even providing us with an umbrella for our walk in the rain.  Super location too.  My reasons for not awarding it a full five stars?  Rather noisy, at least on the main floor and appears to not have ac.  Was glad to have windows that opened, a ceiling paddle fan and an additional plug in table top fan.  You should be fine other than in the hottest of summer days.  Also appreciated the cucumber water in the lobby and last but not least, loved that it was attached to a Starbucks store!

Great spot.  Hotel staff are good with great suggestions for places to go and eat in the area.
Although the hotel does not have a restaurant ( other than a Starbucks) the restaurant options in the neighborhood are amazing.  Cajun, Mexican, Greek, Irish Pubs, and pizza.  15 -20 minute walk into the downtown core.  And really close to the space needle.

The Mediterranean Inn Hotel is located just one block from Key Arena and the Space Needle on Queen Anne North in downtown Seattle within walking distance to many attractions. While the boutique-style hotel's accommodations are limited, the rooms are incredibly clean and the staff is friendly and helpful! The cheery yellow hotel has out-swinging windows that open so you can enjoy the fresh Pacific Northwest air. The hotel also offers an onsite Starbucks and pay bicycle rentals. During my stay, the staff was extremely pleasant suggesting unique, "local" venues for dining and helpful directions for site-seeing. The Mediterranean Inn Hotel is ideal for the budget-conscious traveler who enjoys city sight-seeing by foot and wants a centralized location.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Queen Ave offer a nice view of the mountain range and city.

This little gem is ideal if you want to be close to the Space Needle and Westlake Monorail station, as it is about a 10 to 15 minute walk away (so you don't have to worry about parking and driving). It is still at a decent distance from the hustle and bustle of Pike Place about 1 and a half miles (we walked this and it wasn't so bad), and about a 30 minute drive from the SEA airport.

The rooms themselves are not very big but are equipped with a small sink, mini fridge, microwave,  and some cabinets. The rooms are nothing fancy but it's got all the small conveniences. Speaking of which! How awesome is it that there is a Safeway grocery store practically across the street? This makes it ideal if you want to save a few bucks by buying a few food items to keep in your room.

If you have some time, check out their roof patio. It's quite nice and offers a nice view of downtown and the space needle. Their chairs are pretty relaxing too. If you're lucky to be there on a sunny day, soak up some sun!

The 4 stars you wonder? I mean this place is pretty good so far. Well let's just say when you find yourself on a red eye flight and can't find parking? It can be quite annoying....more like aggravating. We drove in an F150. Picture the tiniest parking garage ever. The kind with very, very low ceilings and narrow parking spots with not much room to maneuver. Got it? Now add lots of cars parked terribly. You know the debauchery, the ones that hog two spaces! Cant park between the lines, yeah. Let's just say to park this Ford was a nightmare. The antenna kept swiping against the beams and parking alone took 30 min because there was no parking in any level. The gentleman at the front desk told us it was ok to park on the handicap spot, but even still, that didn't feel right.

I still recommend this place if you're looking to save, and still have a nice accommodation. Even more if you don't have a car with you! And if you're on your way now, don't say I didn't warn you about the parking situation. Toodles!

I stayed here recently for spring break with my boyfriend. (March 29-april 3). It was a lot nicer than we expected it to be.

Our room 416 was clean when we checked in. There was a kitchenette, safe, and iron. The room was the perfect size for 2.

*The only complaint would be about our noisy neighbors the last night we were there.  And the water was off that same night, i believe there was a flood.

Other positives
Roof access

Very close to Seattle center (needle, emp, science museum, etc)
