Very quiet and clean! No bathrooms in the rooms but they do give you robes to use which is helpful! A little pricey for not having a bathroom but then again the location is great!

Needed a place to stay before a cruise. Downtown Ballard is great if you don’t have a car as every fun & delicious place is within walking distance or easy to catch a bus! Also the staff (at both-Inn & Hotel) are friendly, helpful & professional.

Oh, where to begin? This is literally the worst hotel experience I have ever had. This IS NOT A HOTEL. It is essentially a hostel with private rooms. The check in clerk was rude. The room? Literally a bed shoved in a room with a nightstand. No dresser, nothing. Given that I was there for several days, it was super great to have to just have my clothes jammed in my suitcase or strewn about. Shared bathrooms were very gross. There is no AC. When I complained, they essentially said "oh well". Then, on the day of check out, with a couple of hours left before checking out, a clerk came to say "oh, we ordinarily would have offered you some wine or a meal at the restaurant next door to compensate, but now you're checking out, so. " Shrug. WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE when I actually complained two days previous. The. WORST. The neighborhood is awesome, but this is ludicrous.
