Location is fantastic; steps away from the shops and restaurants of Ballard. Staff very friendly. Comfy beds and sheets. Nice coffee and tea set out in the morning.
We paid $99 for a tiny 'full sized' room - I wouldn't pay a penny more. Bed was short, a double, and pushed up against the wall, which made it very awkward. Not enough shared bathrooms for the number of rooms, and they were of average cleanliness. Not sure I would stay again.
Location in old ballard could not be better.

Shared bathroom idea - but it turned out to be not that big of a deal.
Location in heart of Ballard is wonderful. Knew this space before renovations as love what they've done to update it, and furnish the rooms. Bed was extremely comfortable. Very clean. Minimal, but all essentials covered. Staff was great! Feels like you could be in a small Parisian getaway. Bien!
About the only downside was the noise from the Ballard Fitness club early in the morning---we felt as if we were actually taking the cycling class that started at 6am! But we're good sleepers, and all in all did not distract from the whole experience.
Clean and friendly.small tiny room.great coffee and location.the mattress was lopsided so we did not sleep well.nice and quiet place.
Bed mattress was lopsided and uncomfortable
Location was the best! Step outside your door and you are in the heart of Ballard. Walking distance to great restaurants and bars, yet the room was quiet and we got a great night's sleep. The best of both worlds. Staff was pleasant and helpful with good recommendations for dining and shopping. Definitely will return.
The rooms are somewhat cramped with no closet and not much "walking around" room, but this is a minor inconvenience compared to the cleanliness and convenience of the location.
Great location, lots of shops restaurants close by. Room was clean and common areas were also clean. Good value for the money. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
If you are a light sleeper, it would be a little loud. You can hear street noise and noise from other travelers in the hallways. Staff was away from the desk a lot so the window was closed.
Location in the heart of Ballard
Shared bath a little bit of a hassle but never a problem. Also noisy neighborhood but fun. Full of energy. Ear plugs were great. Slept with window open.
Close to bus stop, perfect for enjoying ballard historical district. Staff is great, rooms and bathrooms are clean, everything is charming at Ballard Inn.
The Inn, the location, the beds, staff, the athletic club
Waiting on the bathroom, no ac it got a bit hot at night.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Location, price, easy access to Scandinavian Seattle, Cosy, nice helpful staff.
The place is clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and helpful.I liked the neighborhood, it is full of neat shops and cafes.
I did not like the parking situation. There was nowhere close to the place to park the car overnight and they wanted 15 bucks to park in the lot of a nearby hotel. When we got to our room we noticed the earplugs on the nightstand. We were awoken very early the next morning by obnoxiously loud music coming from the gym next door.
Loved the hotel, room, opening windows, the neighbourhood. I was excited to stay here and was not disappointed!
The spin class across the street at 6am. That was pretty obnoxious, but hardly the hotels fault.
Nice location right in pub and dining area. Lovely old house with great staff, clean and lovely room.
Is is very noisy given it is in a pub and Restaurant area. No air condition, which is probably only an issue 4 weeks a year. We were there in August and it was hard to sleep with windows open... Very loud!
LIKED THE LOCATION, ALTHOUGH A LITTLE FAR FROM DOWNTOWN SEATTLE.
THOUGHT THE PRICES WERE TO HIGH FOR WHAT WE GOT.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean.
No closet and minimal number of coat hooks, meant we had to "live out of the suitcase". For some strange reason, our room had no bedside tables. Also, it was quite noisy on Friday night, since the hotel is near bars and restaurants.
The location was awesome. Great restaurants and bars within walking distance. And a block from the bus to take you anywhere. Definitely an up and coming neighborhood so it will only get better.
Minor complaint: the light switch for the restroom was outside in the hall.
It was clean, in an interesting neighborhood, good mattress and price.
The street noise (bar hoppers) went every night until 2:30 - when the bars closed. There were loud partying voices, loud motorcycle engines. That the rooms include earplugs is a good hint. Also the room was really warm despite cool time of year, so we needed to have the window open...making things even louder.
CRAMPED ROOM, NOTHING MORE THAN A BED, TV, AND NIGHT STAND! SHARED BATHROOM SHARED SHOWER STALL A SMALL SLIDING WINDOW OPENING ONE FOOT AWAY FROM SIDEWALK/STREET. NO A/C slooooww wifi NEVER AGAIN!
Located in the heart of the some of the best dining spots. You have access to the Olympic Gym, which is beautiful, old and has everything to offer. Linens and towels are European quality. Rooms are cozy with a old/new charm.
Street traffic can be very loud at night.
Very close to everything, bars, resturants and not too far from the city (if you have a car). It's a good area. Shared bathrooms but very clean & didn't have issues with it. Friendly staff.
Very very small room. Our bed was in a cavity in the wall, hardly any room to open 1 of our bags. No fan or air-con. And because it is close to bars there's a LOT of noise at night, hotel provides war plugs that did the trick.
This was a great find! I will be back and am anxious to stay there again. The cleanliness was beyond impressive.
Quaint, history building in an excellent location. The staff was very welcoming and pleasant.
Due to the location and how popular the neighborhood is, it can be a bit noisy at night. The hotel provided earplugs, though, which was very thoughtful!
