A Cheap Stay

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 28, 2004

This Holiday Inn "Select" is like the old Holiday Inn's use to be. This one is nothing like I had imagined in regards to it's 3 star rating. It was very clean and VERY formal looking in it's entry way...however, the rooms are regular Joe rooms unless you rent a suite - which there are only 26 of in a hotel with 265 rooms. A rollaway bed was available for $20 a night but would NOT fit in a standard room with two beds. So, if you have kids, rent two rooms.

We stayed in this hotel via PRICELINE.com for $35 a night in March. This hotel was worth about $35 a night. There is absolutely nothing in this hotel for kids. Nothing. this hotel is for business men/women and adults. We did not see another kid for the four days we stayed there.

There is a restaurant attached to the hotel called the Yankee Grill. The food is great but the prices are high. There is absolutely NO VIEW from this hotel except of the interstate.

We had difficulty getting our room set-up for 5 people. They set it for 3 people and we would have to call every night for additional items. We left notes but they were not regarded.

This hotel is a NO GO for kids unless you stay there after May and before October. The kids need the pool....otherwise, there is nothing to do.

Unique Quality: Each room comes with internet access and Nintendo game systems via the television but they are pricey and are charged by the hour. One very cool item are the in room movies for $10 a pop - several movies available were still in theaters. Extras such as microwave and refrigerator were available for an additional $10 a night. They have a pool but it's only heated in May - October.

TIP: This hotel is within 5 miles of IKEA!

Directions: I-405 North....take exit #2 towards Renton. Go under viaduct and the hotel is on right hand side.
