General Impressions

A very cheap, no-frills hotel meant for people on extended stays that don't want or can't afford something better.

How I chose the hotel

This hotel is close to offices where Mike was working.


We stayed in what is called a studio-suite, but is actually a small room with a kitchenette and a bathroom. The bedroom had a queen size bed, a dresser with a television and one night table. The window overlooked the parking lot.

The kitchenette had a full-size refrigerator, a two-range stove, a microwave, a sink and high table. Basic cooking/eating ware is provided.

The bathroom was medium size, with a sink and a bathtub/shower. There was good water pressure.

Room Service

We only stayed one night, so I couldn't evaluate room service. The room was clean when we got there.

Grounds and Facilities

The hotel is very basic, with a small front office and rooms looking into the parking lot. There is free parking at the hotel. The hotel is located in southeast Bellevue, near Factoria, in an area without major attractions.


The hotel provides free high-speed wireless internet connectivity.

Televisions have an assortment of cable channels including Showtime.

The hotel does not offer breakfast.

Rooms are given a "refreshing service" every three days. The bed is made and new towels are provided. Additional refreshing services are $5. Every five days sheets are changed, additional full services are $10. You can get fresh sheets, towels and shampoo at reception.

Final Thoughts

I wasn't thrilled with this hotel, but I can see it serves its purpose and it's not bad for a one-night stay, specially considering how cheap it was ($90). Still, I would not want to stay here for more than a day.
