We spent 3 nights at this lovely, quiet B&B and felt at home. It was so much more relaxing that staying at a hotel. The accommodations were clean, luxurious and very comfortable. The hosts were delightful and provided everything we needed: great coffee in the morning and a variety of delicious breakfasts served each morning (even paying attention to our...

B&Bs are convenient and generally fun. The 9 Crane's B&B exceeded our expectations. The facility was extraordinarily clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was more than acceptable. The location proved satisfactory for our pursuits and we will look to stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently prior to going on a cruise to Alaska. The property is well located in the lovely neighbourhood of Phinney Ridge with the Zoo, Green Lake and a range of restaurants all nearby. In many ways this is the real Seattle far ( yet only a 15/20 min bus ride ) away from the...

9 Cranes Inn is a lovely B&B north of downtown Seattle. The entire house was beautifully furnished with an old-fashion theme. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was amazing! Highly recommended

We loved spending part of our honeymoon at 9 Cranes Inn. Everything was perfect, impeccably clean, and super comfortable. The room was spotless and decorated very nicely. There was even a dressing table where I could sit and do my makeup which was nice. All the amenities were provided including soft drinks and coffee whenever needed. Breakfast was above and...

Perfect location just 15-20 mins North of downtown Seattle with free parking on the street. There is a short walk to catch a $2.50 bus downtown or a $15 Uber ride. Comfortable room with a/c if needed, friendly host, and a great breakfast.

Furnishings and amenities: top rate, comfortable, attractive and user friendly. Location: excellent. Breakfast and breakfast company: excellent. Hostess: appropriately friendly and helpful but not overbearing. Overall: one of the best we've ever stayed in, no negatives.

My husband and I stayed recently and had a wonderful time. The location was convenient, rooms spacious and overall a great vibe! Owner helpful, but gives you space to get comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the other guests over breakfast. Breakfast was fabulous and the coffee yum. Best bed and breakfast we have stayed at yet.
