My fiancee and I stay at this surprising gem whenever we visit his family down the street. It's priced about 100 a night and can't be more worth the money as the familiar economy hotels run at similar rates. We anticipated changes to the quality when the ownership changed, but during our stay over Christmas '06 the new owners, Kay and Craig, proved more than up to task, adding a few extra embellishments and preserving the sherry nightcap we love so much. Summer months are busiest here, as we learned when surprised to get our usual room, Lady Anne's Chamber, only days before Christmas. The four poster bed is always fluffy and worth the 2-step climb, and the clawed tub is as fun to bathe in as to get out of and into a cozy white robe. A VCR/DVD and cable in the room let you watch a movie selected from the dowstairs game room at your liesure, and the heavy curtains and extra pillows and blankets ensure a quiet, warm, sleep. Our peeks in the other rooms--also themed--proved the rest to be just as cozy!
Attentive care silently places your basket of rise-and-shine outside the door at an hour you presribe; a full carafe of coffee or water for tea or both, the local paper, and all the fixin's. Breakfast awaits in the dining room with guests perhaps or the company of the owners, lively conversation always, and excellent food. A legacy of the previous owners' proud tea cup collection remains, now along with the new owners' salt and pepper collection. An old-fashioned radio plays kind music during breakfast.
Unique Quality: Rock on the patio in summer months or cuddle up in the game room with hot tea in the winter. A new Garden Terrace room has double jacuzzi, private entrace, and a view of the Cascades on a clear day. The water is a few blocks' walk if you like a stroll.
Close to Boeing and the new Everett Events Center.
