Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yorkie48 Great staff and hotel
Stayed here rather than downtown and what a great choice, the staff were all very helpful and the room was great with plenty of room and very comfortable bed. The breakfast was a good selection of hot and cold food. The pool, jacuzzi and fitness room were excellent. The hotel was very clean throughout and I would definitely stay here again. plenty of great food outlets within walking distance. I went to Ivar's Fish Bar that had some great fish dishes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nan6970 Good rate
A distance from downtown so you would need a car
Then it's easy to get to all the attractions.
And parking is free!
Comfortable and clean. Very clean!
Breakfast is fair.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SidsintheHall Excellent Value
We have stayed at this property before and enjoyed it. The reason for our trip this year was for the Seattle Seahawks game. I like this property because of the value it provides due to its location. It is not too far outside downtown Seattle that the drive is inconvenient. We have stayed at other downtown Seattle hotels for about the same cost per night; however, factoring in parking at around $20 per day and breakfast needs to be purchased at around $50 per day, the Shoreline location provides excellent value. The hotel is clean, the pool is rarely busy (a plus when you have two kids) and the area is quiet. The only negatives I would mention is that the evening noise was much more of a disturbance than in the past (example - when the toilet was flushed in the room next door, it was easily heard). Also, it took to the third morning to get bananas at breakfast, but at least they were yellow and not green as they have been in the past. I would recommend this hotel for a good location, great value and simple, clean accommodations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dpm47 Great Hotel - Breakfast has issues
We've been staying at Holiday Inn Express (HIE) for many years. Our first choice of hotels when available. We have lots of HIE experiences. Most are very good. This last stay, Shoreline, we had a very nice room, very clean, no complaints whatever. But, at check in, there was no one at desk. Sign saying so, and to use the "house" phone. Well, that was actually hard to find. Only one in lobby. After searching for the phone for about 15 min, I spent several minutes calling the number. The front desk staff finally arrived. The time it took to find a phone and get a response was not acceptable . When the front desk staff arrive, she was very helpful - like we have become accustom to from HIE.
For breakfast. Good variety, but many were not available when about 30 min from closing time. And, when asking about replenishment, the answer was "no more available". Not acceptable response. We expect to have the full variety of selections up until closing time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlaskaSnowbird Well Trained Staff
This clean and comfortable hotel is elevated to superior by the excellence of the well trained staff. Everyone from the breakfast room staff to the maintenance crew to the front desk is unfailingly cheerful, polite, and customer service oriented. We had a problem with the room heater, and it was swapped out for a brand new unit quickly and with minimal interruption of our comfort and privacy in the room. This North Seattle hotel provides a home away from home experience that is much better than other hotels in the area.

Very comfortable, clean, and quiet ( in spite of fact the hotel was quite full the night before a Seahawks game!). Breakfast was great and plenty of room for us to eat with other family members. All in all, great experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 My Official Hotel in Seattle
I come to the Seattle area every month on business. I use the Shoreline Holiday Inn Express on 145th st as my official hotel of record. Not only have they provided excellent service but the location is central to many of the clients that I meet with. Also the closeness of the I-5 Freeway, US 99 north and south is good, the choice of eateries in Edmonds and Greenwood, make this hotel very convenient. I did find two great restaurants nearby, FLO-ANNA's on Bathol Way and Pho Man Dumpling House on Greenwood Ave, great food at terrific price. Also recommend Shantrel's in Edmonds on Main Street near the ferry, wow, great lamb shank and tomato bisque soup. Staff, very professional, like the rehab of the hotel, looks very smart.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lorig4844 Would not choose this hotel again
Ants in bathroom, we stayed four days and sheets weren't changed, shower handles were broken/loose and it was difficult to get the hot water going.
Very average hotel
Location is not in best neighborhood, 10 miles from downtown and at least 20 miles from airport. Had we known the city, we would not have chosen this location.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Me7567 Comfortable hotel, bad location
This Holiday Inn was up to standard in terms of what one expects from the chain, but is located far from the city center. Do not stay here if you do not have a car as the bus journey in is a rather unpleasant experience. Further we were shocked by the horrific amount of paper and plastic wasted in both the rooms and at breakfast. The breakfast itself would have benefited from some fresh fruit rather than just pre-packaged food choices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kirara Very pleasant and helpful staff
Stayed as a couple in the hotel for three nights in August. The location is not bed - 30 minutes distance from downtown. Windows are overlooking a highway, therefore one could hear traffic noise throughout a day.. However, at night it is less noisy.
We were pleasantly surprised by very pleasant staff, who was always there to help and advise.
Nice additions to a breakfast menu were steamed rice and pancakes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tkay51 Many stays in North Seattle/Shoreline facility
I have to say that while traveling for the company I work for, this is the only facility that meets all expectations. Clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and very accommodating staff. In fact I think it is the best hotel staff I have dealt with across the country. I stay weekly and will continue to choose this facility in the future.

This new sight is a quiet hotel on Aurora which is away from the construction in the Lake Union area, but still provides easy access to downtown. Also close to Ballard, Green Lake. Desk has good suggestions on local restaurants.

Bed was very comfortable, as was the room; We booked a king suite. The bathroom, however, was quite tight. (You can not get to the tub until first closing the door - the same with the toilet.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CanVisit Short stay
We stayed only for 2 days, but found the hotel to be good. we had tried to get a hotel in downtown, but due to busy summer season, were only able to get this hotel. It is out of the way from the downtown tourist attractions, and a vehicle is needed. It would have been nice if a shuttle bus was available to take you downtown and back at different times of the day.
the free parking and the free breakfast were perks and made it affordable with 2 kids and 2 seniors.
the rooms were comfortable, but it would be nicer if the coffee machine was outside of the bathroom. there was enough space in the room to put in a small cabinet to house a little kitchen centre..
at least the microwave was outside the bathroom.
my kids were disappointed that the tv did not have the disney channels..
however, overall, it was a good stay, with good service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yay4films Extremely clean, professional staff and QUIET
I was very pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Northgate Holiday Inn Express. I was trying to avoid Aurora which I associate with strip clubs, gigantic signs, fast food and tire joints, traffic and noise, but since I used priceline, I had to go with whatever I got.
This hotel was VERY clean, and well-staffed. I didn't see a single thing out of place in my room. It was very comfortable and most of all, very quiet. The location is convenient to the 5 freeway, and fairly close to Greenlake neighborhood and downtown. In other words, you drive 5 - 15 minutes away and you're pretty much where you want to be. We drove down Aurora to downtown once on Saturday night and that was a little busy, but what can you expect. The location is not nearly as out of the way as I thought it would be. I wouldn't go there again ONLY because I still don't like Aurora but NOT because of the quality of the hotel. I did not have the continental breakfast so I can't comment on that.

This was my first stay after the recent remodel - looks so nice! I've been coming to this hotel for 5+ years a few times a year for work - it's always been a nice, clean and comfortable stay. Our company has booked meetings and our out-of-town visitors @ this hotel many times over the years, too - always with good reviews.
