Reviewed 12 September 2016

Got special internet rate that was well worth it. This beautiful hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of piers and Pike's Place Market as well as all downtown Seattle stores. Can be reached by taking Link system from airport $3 - no taxi needed!

Hotel staff is professional, hotel is clean in great location in safe neighborhood. It was silent in my room, the bed was comfortable so I could get some good rest after busy day. I would not gamble for another location next time I visit Seattle!

Our stay at the Motif Hotel was good. Internet was great; mattresses were in good shape, which always facilitates a restful night. Despite be in downtown, outside noise was well contained. Meeting rooms were spacious, sound system worked well.

Poor service (they never called to tell me my room was ready for more than an hr), unclean (food trays and TOOTH FLOSSERS left in the hallways for more than 24hrs!! Toothflossers?? Disgusting!), and loud rooms (noises like dragging metal chairs across a stone floor at 10p, 11p, 12a). Nice area, but it wouldn't miss a beat if this place...

Location was central and walking distance to Market but the condition of the room was old, the toilet kept running even after I manually fixed it each time I used it. The shower head is awkwardly low. For the money, I would stay at other locations.

My girlfriend and I stayed here when we went down and saw the Carrie Underwood concert. I'm going to be completely honest with this hotel, it was awful. I don't even know where to start. First off the price is ridiculous for the standard room. I paid a lot for what I was thinking was a really nice room. I...

We booked this on hotels tonight and couldn't have been happier! They're under construction right now, which is why we probably got a really great deal, but they did everything they could to minimize the disruption to our stay. Wine happy hour was a nice touch, too!

Fullerton
Reviewed 9 September 2016

Location is convenient as it is close to shops and dining. However, the room was more run-down than I expected; scuffs on walls, holes in upholstery. The bed was also uncomfortable and loud; it was lined with a plastic or rubber sheet under the flat sheet. The room had a nice look but has seen better days.

There is no shuttle but if you are flying in the Light Rail from Airport parking garage area to Westlake Center is $2.75. You are 2 blocks from hotel from there and an easy walk with luggage.

The train will take you to the Westlake center which is only a couple of blocks away. Exit on 5th street and walk toward Pike street (SE) 1 1/2 blocks to the Motif which is on 5th avenue between Pike and Union.
