    The website offers a pool during "the summer months." I arrived in July and found the pool empty. The attendant insisted the pool was only advertised as "seasonal" - a blatant lie as anyone can see from their website. I asked for a discount and he barked "What's your room number?" in a threatening tone. I wouldn't stay here again if it were the last hotel on Earth.

    I decided to stay at this hotel after seeing how close it was to the downtown area, and at only $79 a night. (Ok yes, partially my fault for trying to save a buck. )I found a used condom in my bed after sleeping there on my first night!! I ran to the bathroom and toilet was not working :( . I needed to shower, but the water wouldn't drain from the bottom so I did it as quickly as possible. I informed the front desk of the "mishaps" as calmly as I could. I was moved to another room (thankfully). My second night, one of my friends came to see me and brought me blankets after she was made aware of what had happened, and later I was then accused of having someone else in my room and almost charged an extra fee!!  I was treated very poorly throughout my whole stay which I ended up cutting short since I could not stand to stay there another night. My stay was supposed to be for 4 nights, and I decided to stay in a hotel to not inconvenience my family and friends since my trip was very last minute. I never got credited anything from the hotel, not even the parking I paid for every night after the horrid service and unsanitary conditions.I ended up staying with my friend. I hope others don't ever experience what I had to go through in my short stay at Pacific Seattle Hotel. Staying at this hotel is one of the few things I regret doing in my life.

    This place is a DUMP. Omg, when we drove up the pool was covered with a tarp, along with beer cans surrounding it, I was dirty on the inside and out!!! They are OVER Priced big time!!! What ever you go, DO NOt, I repeat do not stay here. The room was worst than the lobby, there was popcorn seiling above the bed that was failing, right on the bed! This place is only good if you wanna be around meth and crack heads!!! If I can give it a big fat 0( zero) I would! The owner is rude and nasty... Please do not stay here!!!

    What can I add that hasn't been said already?

    The Seattle Pacific Hotel is in a great location right near Seattle Center.  It is convenient to the Space Needle, EMP building, and the monorail to downtown.

    It is on the extreme rustic side and is probably best suited to broke college students, adventurous Euros, and people looking for a place to make a heroin deal.  As long as you don't worry that a hooker stabbing or drug related shootout might ruin your vacation, this may be an OK place for you.

    Special amenities include a phone with no receiver, a non-functioning heater, and a homeless guy asleep on the couch near the elevator.  We moved rooms twice after the guy at the desk asked if I was sure the heater didn't work.  The first room was inaccessible due to the door lock being low on batteries and not reading the key.  This led us to a secret tip for you weary travelers, stay on the third floor.

    While our second floor room looked like a crime scene (as described in other reviews here), our third floor room was half-way decent.  Clean bathroom with toilet paper, and all the appliances had been manufactured within the last decade or so.  It was a huge difference.  Of course while the ad said that every room had a coffee maker there was no coffee to go with it.  I guess it was exactly as advertised in that regard.

    Everything else was as described in other reviews.  This was one of the worst hotels I've ever seen, second only to Budget Bob's in Salt Lake City.

    I booked this hotel on Expedia, where it was advertised as follows:

    "Seattle Pacific Hotel offers complimentary wireless Internet access throughout, and serves a complimentary Continental breakfast daily. The hotel also offers an outdoor pool and spa tub. Laundry facilities are located on site."

    Upon reaching the hotel, a dingy motor court, I was greated by a concierge with extraordinarily bad body odor and a small form.  This small form stated that the hotel did not guarantee the facilities advertised on Expedia.com .  That was not a promising start.  The first room we were given had stains on the bedding and no wireless access.  We asked to be moved to another room, and the concierge did so, with hesitation.  The second room was still rather dingy, but at least had the promised wifi access.  

    The hotel's parking is limited to what appears to be 10-20 spots for sixty rooms.  The continental breakfast consisted of spoiled orange juice (a day away from orange liquor), stale mini-bagels, and mini-muffins.   Austere for the price charged.  

    Customer service was best evidenced by the fact that I asked the concierge to call a cab for me and was told that there was a phone book in the lobby and I could call one myself.  

    Seattle is not known for good customer service or value for the buck, but this is outstandingly poor.

    It's cheap, yes, but you get what you pay for.

    Interested in going to your doctor and having some shots?  You will be once you step foot in one of these rooms.  

    The walls were paper thin, the bathrooms horrendously  grimy, and the floors so nasty that we kept our shoes on when in the room.

    Never never never again.

    This place is absolutely disgusting. It's best thought of as 'the last teardown on the street.'  Right on busy 99 so the traffic noise is deafening.  old dilapidated rooms, no ventilation.  NEVER AGAIN!

    I'm gonna change things up here.
    When finding a place to stay I look at 3 things, location, price, and sketchiness. In that order. I just need a place to lay my head, and I have a pretty high sketchiness tolerance.
    This hotel is in a great location, is the cheapest around (but still freakin expensive), and is only slightly sketchy. There may have been a crack deal going on in the parking lot when we got here, but it was bush league.
    Our room was spotless. No funky smells or grime anywhere. There was full cable, a fridge, and a microwave. Perfecto.
    If I need a hotel in Seattle again, I will probably stay here.
    If you usually stay at places with 800 thread count sheets, and fitness centers, then yeah, this'll probably be the worst hotel you've stayed in.

    The very first sight that greeted me when I got out of the car in the hotel parking lot was poop. Poop all over a wall that had dripped down into a small pile. Seriously. And we had to pay $7 to park there. Which they didn't advertise and was news to my group.
    If you can, use the stairs. The elevator is sketchy, at best.
    We had two rooms. One had a tub that didn't drain, a view of a wall and cable that didn't work. The other room was pretty okay but seemed to be missing the usual complementary items like coffee or handsoap.
    The one redeeming factor was that the bed and pillow was comfortable. I woudn't want to examine anything with a black light, however. I'd rather not know.

    Do not stay here! The owner"raj" is very unprofessional and rude. I made a reservation here but had to cancel and he was going to charge me a 25 cancellation fee that he never mentioned. When i asked to speak to his superviser he said "i am the owner!" I told him i will be reporting him to the better business bureau if he does not cancel it and he said "report me then!" I dont understand how anyone can expect to have a good customer base with this type of attitude.

    Once again, I give the place 5 stars!

    Same as always, which is why I keep coming back. I love these folks. From Mike (I cannot, for the life of me, pronounce his name, so it's Mike), to sweet girl who got married last year and I can never remember her name, and Raj, the owner, who greeted me with the biggest grin and jokingly rolled his eyes saying, "Oh, my goodness, Tami, you're back?! No trouble from you this time!". It was only a 3 day stay here, and had a great joke with in-town girlfriends who'd picked me up regarding my room phone that had no cover on it.

    Oh, come on... it is NOT the Ritz. But the showers are good, the beds are bug free, the owners treat you like family... in other words, you treat them with the same respect you expect to receive, and they will bend over backwards ensuring your stay there is perfect.

    Even if it does mean you've gotta jack the coffee maker from another room. :)

    *And the wifi is spotty dependent on your location of the hotel, so be prepared to either rely on your smart phone connection or just go to the lobby.

    Concern about your health and your family. You shouldn't take a risk in this hotel room. No matter how low the price is than the nearby hotels. Lesson learned.

    By far the worst hotel I've ever stayed at - and cost was $190+. The pool is maybe 25% full and filthy in late July. The window is broken, carpet looks like it hasn't been cleaned since the 80's, I'm unsure if I want to turn down the bed given how stained the skirt is, the fridge has ice and water all over the inside, the wall patches haven't been repainted (the size of a person), 'artwork' matte is stained, and the room reeks of old cigarettes. After waking up in the morning (fully clothed socks and all - for fear of acquiring something) my throat was on fire from the "air conditioning" aka carcinogen pump. It continued to hurt for days afterwards. If this was a $19 room I wouldn't stay there - stay very far away from this dump.

    If you adjust your expectations to zero and keep a sense of humor, this place is tolerable for about 48 hours.  I'm no snob, but this place was straight up slummy. The location is good (a block away from the Space Needle), and the nice young twenty-something kid at the front desk was super professional and polite.  Stinky hallways, outdated furniture/carpet/bedding (think grimy and beat up, not charming and vintage), and lots of trashy touches (painted cinder-block walls in the rooms, poorly applied caulk in the bathroom, a water-less pool with trash in it) made this the yuckiest place I've ever stayed. If you decide to brave this place, I'd recommend spending as few waking moments there as possible, and don't bring your kids (unless you wrap them in hazmat suits)!

    First they double charge my card and won't refund the full amount. The owner raj  is very rude and crooked.
    Be CAREFULL!!! do not waste the little money it costs to stay here. It's NOT worth it!!!

    Nasty *ss hotel. Dirty rooms. I don't feel comfortable leaving my stuff in the room. Breakfast is some fruit and muffins. Wifi doesn't work. Right now there is construction so good luck sleeping. It is cheap but not that much cheaper than the surrounding hotels that are so much better. Can't stress enough, I wouldn't stay here unless you can only afford an $80 room.

    Just stayed here a couple weeks ago.
    They allow dogs.
    Continental breakfast was good.
    They're the cheapest in Seattle.
    Great location. Except for the construction...

    White stains on two different chairs in the room. It looked like some type of cleaner maybe? Bad enough that I made a point not to sit in the chairs.
    Crooked toilet.
    Very outdated.
    Horrible recommendation for Padrino's Pizza (also 1 star). We both got sick from the rancid onions!
    Soap made in China.
    Large square shaped cracks on the ceiling above the shower that makes it look like the ceiling might cave in.
    The pool was half full and dirty on the first weekend of summer.
    And the old guy behind the desk laughed at my boyfriend for slipping on some water on the floor. I slipped at one point too and no one said anything.
    Put a rug down, idiots!

    I hope someone buys this place and fixes it up!

    Pretty bad hotel, but close to the Seattle Center.

    * Breakfast is just coffee, roasted bagels, and some strawberry/blueberry jam, very boring
    * They claim to have free Wi-Fi, but it did not extend beyond the lobby, so it's useless
    * TV did not work
    * Phone did not work
    * Only one unused power plug
    * Rooms and furniture are old, things are rusting away, stains in the carpet, etc.
    * Shower is dodgy
    * Next to a major road, constant noise of driving cars
    * At time of writing, major construction going on behind the hotel, making it hard to find and adds extra noise

    * Only 5 minutes of walking to the Seattle Center, which has the Space Needle, EMP Museum, Chihuly Glass Museum, a convenient monorail to the Seattle Westlake Center, and more.
    * Relatively cheap, compared to other downtown hotels
    * $2.50 self-laundry service, you can ask for detergent
    * Can ask the staff to print out tickets
    * Overall the staff was kind and helpful

    Mystery stains on the carpet and mattress. Bare spackle in every room, including the lobby. The bathroom looked like it was getting redone and needed to have the walls finished. I'm almost certain the weird textural "paint job" was to try to hide all the screwed up areas in the walls and countertop. There was a broken-off chunk to the bathroom counter that was just spackled over. I saw plenty of the counter because I kept having to take the lid off the cistern to the toilet because it would just keep running.   The "fitted" sheets come right off the bed to easily reveal those mystery stains. Good luck finding someone at the desk if you need anything. The door to the room had to be slammed to shut it. Oh, and the "continental breakfast" is just adding insult to injury.

    This place really needs some loving and updates. The room is big bit with problems including a crushed dr. Pepper can that's not ours but on the floor, a dripping tub even in drought, and a really sad breakfast choice of muffins or small bagel, tea with powdered cream, or orange juice. That's it. This would be a great place with some TLC.

    Fairly decent for the price we paid. Walls are thin but you're also in walking distance to a lot of great places. Just sucks it seems like the street they're on has been under construction forever so getting here was not easy

    If it were possible to give less stars than 1... I would.
    Without a doubt... The worst hotel I have ever stayed in.  Everything that you could make a comment on would be terrible.  I really don't know what else to say.  NOONE should ever stay here.  The place not only SHOULD be condemned .... It looks like it WAS condemned years ago, someone just forgot to tell the owners.  STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    If you are reading this, DO NOT BOOK HERE.

    I cannot even rate this place lower, should be negative stars. First off the rooms are beyond filthy, bathrooms a disaster (Moldy, Shower Tiles painted and Peeling, Towel Racks Rusty and Floor Tiles Piss Stained), Beds and Carpet smell of dead moldy hookers. Beds are stained and I only know because the sheets came off the corners.

    Not only the rooms a mess, but the pool and hot tub look like a swamp from the Bayou. Thats being nice. The construction happening around the place doesn't help when you are woken up at 6am with Diesel fumes filling up your room and jack hammers pounding and cement trucks making noise.

    I didnt even check out the breakfast, Im in Seattle for work and know theres endless amazing places to eat and get coffee.

    This place needs to be tore down and something else put in its place.

    Oh God how do I begin, I booked this room for its reasonable price for its location but, it also wasn't dirt cheap 145.00 a night so I was expecting something decent with clean sheets what I got was completely beyond horrible. My first room I was given was on the ground floor over looking there pool which resembled a sewage treatment facility. I open the door to my room and I got punched in the face by the smell off black mold and Hookers, and looked like a scene out of cops. I switched room to a interior ground floor one and this one doesn't smell but it looked like a Katrina Victim house with peeling paint and water stained sheets and pillows, on to my third and final room this finally looks decent for the price a bit outdated but up to par for the price, I deff don't recommend this hotel when I asked to leave and get a refund the manager wasn't available until Monday morning and wouldn't talk to me on the phone very disappointed with the service and I will be contacting the BBB long story short I do not recommend this hotel even for the price I have stayed in a lot better places.

    Worst hotel ever!  I was told by my travel agent that this is a four star hotel but it most certainly is not.  The lobby is cheap, old and ragged.  There is no lounge or restaurant to relax in after having traveled. The advertised "breakfast" was stale bagles or some sugar laden muffin.  The hotel is located in the middle of a construction zone so the entrance is through an alley.  Really gross. The view from the filthy window was of a pool that had not been cleaned in a very long time with brownish, black water.    The toilet, tub and bathroom sink were stopped up in both my room and my traveling companion's room.  The room doors looked as if they had been broken in to and the hallway rugs were very old and ragged.  Some moron employee decided to vacuum the hallway at approx. 1:00 a.m. as if the traffic noise wasn't enough.  The final straw was the forgotten wake up call that we requested that caused us to be very late for our taxi. And the old guy behind the desk in the morning was a jerk about having forgotten our wake up call.  Terrible place!  Don't go!!

    I feel like every other review on here is biased/fake...that's just my opinion.

    I chose to stay here because of it's awesome location in Downtown and it's low budget rates. I knew I wasn't getting into anything upscale/four star, so my expectations were low.

    There is plenty of parking ($10/night), so that was good for me as I was travelling through Seattle for the first time. The hotel itself was probably erected in the 70s or 80s...and it still looks like that today, which is fine as long as the property is maintained.

    The receptionist was very friendly and helpful in getting me a room before check-in time. The elevator is pretty old school so you have to hold down on the buttons to make the door close, etc.

    The rooms... well, they're typical small hotel rooms from the 80s. I'm pretty sure every piece of furniture/bedding is original, which is a little gross, but was fine. The wi-fi is free but spotty.

    The only gross part of my initial stay in the room was that the toilet seat was wet/dirty, probably from the maids cleaning it, but still... that's wrong. I had to disinfect it myself.

    Other than that, the hotel was fine and even had some snacks downstairs (toast/bagels/coffee/OJ...not really a continental breakfast if you ask me) every morning for you to grab on the way out.

    I doubt I'd come back to stay here again, but it was definitely worth the bang for the buck/location.

    For the price this hotel SUCKS! Had to wait 10 minutes for hot water, had to turn TV on by light switch! Our room was next to freeway heard every car and truck pass by... also they charged us $10 a day to park!  We drove all the way from California and to stay in this hotel for 2 nights was horrible, I will never stay here again.

    This hotel is on the drug ridden Aurora Ave (hwy 99). I thought it would be nicer though because it is close to Seattle center and in the section that has been "redone". They charge you a 100 deposit and don't have any of the amenities they advertise* and when it's all said and done you are in a room that may or may not be infested with bedbugs.

    *amenities not available when advertised include business center, pool, breakfast and fitness center

    This place is amazing. Honestly, I would give it 6 stars if I could. Beautiful view of the building next door, an tons of open space in the room for dance parties. Blunt friendly, and excellent customer service. I would live here if I could, beautiful poolside atmosphere perfect for sippin 40s and puffin fat blunts, and not far from the Ferris wheel if you feel like cruising around. Good sunrise, and massaging shower heads
