Aurora Avenue used to be the main highway in Seattle but I-5 is now the busy north-south
highway. There are many cheap motels on Aurora Avenue. I accidentally threw away a free guidebook that I got at the airport that list the name of one hostel. If you have a business expense account, you might stay at the Grand Hyatt Elliot Bay or another one of the big hotels.
While I was staying here I was in a Penthouse suite and it cost me 320 American a night. Normal Rooms are 100 and the cheapest in town is 75, so as you can see Its Not bad at all.. This place is a 5 star hotel, the prices are low because they were just bought by some right guy that wanted it for some reason or another and lets the manager run the place.
I can't complain about one single thing. Everything is classy yet does not cost an Arm and Leg.
$22 including tax
The variety of people staying here is phenomenal, when we wrere there, we shared a room with two german girls, a middle aged greek lady, an older american and a canadian called greta!
The 2nd time we went, we spent 2 nights in the Kings hotel.
We got a room with 2 beds and an attached bedroom with one bed. There was also a small refridgerator and a coffee maker in the room. It was old and not fancy, but adequate and cheap.
The first time we went, we spent 1 night (on our way to Vancouver) and stayed at the Warwick hotel.
We paid $110 for the night. We had a room with 2 beds and a mini bar.
There was a really nice little grocery store and deli across the street from them.
Being that I do the budget traveller scene... the Green Tortoise was an okay hostel. Centrally located, but the surrounding area can be a bit shady. Bedrooms and bathrooms are fairly clean, front desk is helpful and the crowd is the normal group of bueget travellers.
$20/night for a bed
The Roosevelt Hotel is a nice older hotel in a fantastic location close to everything.
paid $140 per night for a double but considering the location it is the market rate.
Older style hotel with lots of charm (built in 1929). A piano player in the lobby with fireplace. Attached to Von's bar and restaurant which is a nice place for a beer or meal. Rooms are nice but the key is you can walk everywhere - shopping at Nordstroms, Pike Street Market, Convention Center, etc.
Moore Motel in downtown Seattle. It has really low prices, with and without bathroom, and within walking distance to the Pikes Place Market. It was clean, and the management helpful. A great budget choice at a great location.
$35 US for a single without bathroom Only the hostels were cheaper, but you get your own room and TV and sink here.
For inexpensive lodging and in a very convenient location I would have to recommend the Hostelling Int'l hostel located a block away from Pike Place Market in Downtown. Accomodations were clean and very safe. Staff so sooooo very helpful and friendly. Public transporation was always within blocks of where I needed to go.
I paid about $20 US for a very clean bed in a typical 6 bed room. I couldn't find any other accomodations in the area for Memorial Day Weekend under $90 a night! So this was definitely a best kept secret! My view was amazing- overlooked the water into Elliot Bay.
List of current Seattle activitites and events. Helpful and knowledgable staff. Very informative lounge and kitchen area with info on places to see and things to do around Seattle. On site laundry, pay phones, internet. It's also open 24 hours with someone always at the desk.
