"Okay hotel...nothing wrong"

My family stayed here in one of the suites...I love the separate bedroom! The hotel looks much better inside than out! Our kids loved the breakfast options, but really missed having a pool. You can walk all over the city from here...it's really close to whole foods. Space needle is nearby. And pikes place market was probably a 15 minute walk.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. The location is great and there is limited free parking. We could walk to everything but the city has a lot of construction in progress. We had a king room and it was modern, spacious and very clean. Great bed, linens, pillows, towels and amenities. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient to start the day. The front desk staff was very informative. Check-in and -out was a breeze. Seattle hotels are expensive and you get a lot for your $ at this La Quinta property. Don't let the outside appearance of the building scare you away!

The hotel was awesome. We loved the separate sleeping area suites, the breakfast was more than adequate, and it had free parking. The staff were knowledgeable about the area. The location, was within walking distance of most downtown Seattle attractions, however, the neighborhood was a little sketchy when the sun went down. i will next time pay the extra money for convenience and peace of mind.

THIS IS A REAL REVIEW, IT REALLY HAPPENED AND I AM PERSONNALY TRYING TO POST THIS REVIEW TO EVERY TRAVEL SITE IN THE WORLD. IT IS TRUE, IT HAPPENED AND THE CRITICISM IS WELL DESERVED. PLEASE READ ON FOR YOURSELF. First, This is a real review from a real person with a real experience. I booked a full week at this La Quinta location for July 22nd thru the 29th, 2014. We are returns club members so I guaranteed the room for late arrival. Here's where the fun begins, my credit card was lost about 2 months earlier and I received a new card from Visa, well, I forgot to change the payment information in my hotel reservation. When I arrived late on the 22nd, after 11pm, Guess what? Yes, Our room was cancelled and given up to another person, probably a walk in and probably at a much higher rate. To say the least we were very upset traveling from Texas to Seattle at the height of cruise season and with no place to stay. It gets worse, The clerk told me straight away, we run all the credit cards at 6pm and when yours was declined we gave your room to another person. They never bothered to check are estimated arrival time, they never bothered to try to call even though they had our phone number, they never even tried to make contact of any kind, phone email, nothing. After getting over the shock of not having a room for the night I went into alternate plan mode on the spot, I suggested to the clerk, Let's go ahead and pay for the rest of the week, 6 nights, now and we'll drive out of town and get a room for one night then come back for the next week. Here's the kicker, The hotel cancelled the ENTIRE WEEK OF RESERVATIONS, NOT JUST THE ONE NIGHT. By the time we arrived 4 other nights on our reservation we already rebooked through La Quinta dot com. The biggest dissappointment, the clerk couldn't have cared less, he just wanted us to leave as soon as possible. Not once, did we ever hear from anyone at the hotel, no manager, no clerk, no reservation assistance, NO NOTHING. Only After I emailed did I hear from anyone, Yea they were sorry it happened and Oh, "it isn't our policy to cancel an entire week" and " this never happens" etc. etc. They sent a free night certificate, big whoop, we can afford to pay for our stay. I am sorry to say that this hotel has ruined La Quinta's reputation in our view, and we are 3 decade customers, but after this. This had the potential of ruining our entire week becuase this hotel is convenient for the cruise ship ports and the cruises are extremely busy this time of year. In case you're wondering how our week vacation in Seattle turned out let me tell you. We had a great time, I didn't call or email anyone at La Quinta the whole week on purpose. We saw all the sites, the weather was near perfect and compared to Texas it was cold and that's great in the summertime. As for where we stayed, Well you can read my 5 star review of Best Western Loyal Inn accross the street for that. I will be posting that one soon. As for this review, The story won't change and I fully intend to post this on every single travel site that will allow me to do so. Thanks for nothing La Quinta Seattle, 8th Ave becuase that it was we got from you, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL BUT A TERRIBLE MEMORY OF THE STRESSSFUL, TRUAMATIC SITUATION YOUR HOTEL PUT US IN, THANKS AGAIN FOR NOTHING.

We were trying to find something in our budget that was still close to everything. The hotel was within walking distance to the market, space needle, and waterfront. Our room faced an office building across the alley so we were not able to use the balcony unless you wanted people in the conference rooms watching you. The inside of the building is much nicer than the outside. Rooms were nice and breakfast was great to grab something before you headed out to explore the city.
