I stayed here last night. It's nothing fancy but compared with prices for other central Seattle hotels, it offers a good deal, $89 plus taxes for a double bed en suite room for 1 person. It's like a drive in motel. I asked a lot of questions at reception and the guy who was there (he was named Donni) was very helpful.
Location is great, on 5th ave just a few mins walk out of town from Westlake station in downtown. Thus it is also really handy for the light rail to / from the airport.
11 am check out.
It's pretty dingy, but if you're on a budget and want to be in a good location for visiting the Space Needle and other things in the area, it isn't too bad.
It's about location, not luxury or comfort.
Affordable, more of a "motor inn" right on 5th avenue under / next to the monorail.
Good downtown Belltown location, it's most affordable, around ~ $60/night online, cheap for Seattle downtown, but be prepared for noise, partying, and it gets some funky reviews.
If cheap sleepin' and late partying are your priorities, you can save some bucks here.
Unique Quality: I've never stayed here, just walked past it during both day and nightime and it didn't look too crazy or noisy to me, but you never know.
Seattle hotels are incredibly expensive, so I'm posting this because it is cheap, but read the reviews on frommers, expedia, etc so you know what to expect.
If you're staying downtown & trying to save some bucks you might also want to see if you can get a deal at the Warwick
Directions: Under / next to the monorail at 5th & Lenora.
The Kings in was pretty much your standard hotel as far as comfort and space goes. But it is in a fairly good central location, near the monorail and the guy downstairs who looked after the desk is extremely helpful. He showed me what was what and where to go on a map and gave good advice about Seattle's tourist hotspots. Comfortable and reasonably priced it was a great place to stay.
Unique Quality: Looking out our window you could get a glimpse of the Seattle Space Needle from our room. A great plus to have one of Seattle's most well known sights just out the window. Other than that, everything was fairly standard.
Directions: Just up from the monorail... you cant miss it, on 5th Avenue.
The King's Inn isn't the most luxurious place we've ever stayed, but for the price it can't be beaten! We enjoyed our stay and loved the location is perfect, in Belltown right between Seattle Center and Downtown. And, despite the busy setting, the hotel was pretty quiet.
Unique Quality: The best thing about this hotel, and in fact the main reason why we chose it, is the price! Oh, and the free parking.
like every other Hotel, double bed, television, bathroom, ice machine downstairs this Hotel stoood out to other moderately priced places for the view of needle mountain out the window.
Unique Quality: walking distance to town and space needle
Directions: %th Avenue under monorail
Comments please on KINGS Inn or motel on 5th. Look OK. We are in town for 2 nights and need basic accomodations near Pike Mkt, easy transportation to Space needle. Thanks.
Are you in town right now or are you coming in the future? Don't know this hotel, but if I knew your $$$ budget, I could be more helpful. Are you renting a car, or planning on walking around, so that is why you want to be right downtown? There are some cute B&B's around, including Queen Anne, which is right by the space needle. Another area close to the needle is Capitol Hill, but you would likely need a car for that. For Queen Anne, you could walk to the needle, but Pike's Place would be a little hike.
I just walked past it this afternoon (it's in my neighborhood) and was wondering about it myself. I can tell you that it definitely is a Motel - 2 or 3 stories, and the doors to the rooms are outside. From the looks of the cars in the parking lot, it didn't seem like a place that would house a meth lab, or anything like that. Looked pretty normal, I guess.
The monorail does run along 5th, so there would be noise from that. Plus, there is a fire station on 4th, not far from the motel.
Not sure if you've already made your trip but Kings Inn is just a basic motel on 5th, it's good b/c it's about 3 blocks from downtown and maybe 6-7 from Pike Place. Although I would recommend staying at the Days Inn which is only about 2 blocks from the Kings Inn and looks to be in a little better shape if your on a tight budget.
