Quaint and Functional
Our stay at the Ballard Inn was nice enough. We certainly got what we expected for one of the smaller rooms with shared bath.I did see some of the larger rooms and they were nice an a bit more spacious. It felt a bit like staying in a hostel. Our room was only slightly larger than the double bed (which squeaked terribly). The building is old and you hear EVERYTHING from road noise to other guests walking down the hall so it was no surprise that they provide all guests with ear plugs. Although the bathrooms were shared, they were clean and efficient and we generally didn't have to wait to use them. The staff was helpful and accommodating when we requested a late check out. Finding reasonably-priced places to stay in Ballard is difficult but if you know you want to be in the neighborhood, Ballard Inn is a fine way to go. I've stayed at the sister property, Hotel Ballard before, and it is wonderful but much more expensive. For the price, next time I'll probably look for an Air B&B

The hotel was quaint and provided great service, the one downside was the noise level on the street. We had a room that looked out onto Ballard and the noise went on into the early hours of the morning. With only a second level, and thin windows, it was loud enough to keep us awake.

Overpriced, Good Location
The hotel's neighborhood is great, but the hotel itself is lackluster. The bed was very uncomfortable and the toilet tank chain broke. At night, light from the street and alley seeped in through the windows and it was very bright. Not quite worth the price.

Not worth the money
This felt like a ripoff at what we paid. This is a $100 a night hotel at most except for the area they're in. There is zero nose abatement either from other rooms or the street. They just give you ear plugs. The front desk staff was terrible.
