Shared bathroom alert!
Shared bathrooms on each floor - I guess I didn’t read the fine print! Other than that, great Ballard location. Comfy room.

Lovely little inn
Lovely place to stay, lots of amenities around (including Sunday farmers’ market and a lot of restaurants and very close to bus lines). Do t forget to take your room key when using the restrooms/shower rooms across the hall!

Convenient and reasonably priced
Ballard and its environs do not have many hotel options. This hotel is clean, friendly and perfectly located except for the noise from the street and gym across the street. The common bathrooms are clean and always available. I would suggest that more lighting be installed so that you could read in bed without leaving on the overhead lamp.

Charming building turned into a hotel, a bit smaller than expected. The beds were really hard and uncomfortable. Great location and near a lot of shops, restaurants, and the Sunday Farmer's Market.

Nice, quaint hotel, but LOUD!
A nice little hotel, but it was loud from street noise. Our room door opened directly onto the street. It’s a popular area for food and drinks, so we had people walking past our door until late into the night.
