Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mothergooseofthree I like my beds a little firmer
This hotel was almost perfect, just a good update to decor would complete the look. It was in a good location to all the sites and travel destinations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by justforwork2014 Smelled like Pot and smoke, had garbage in the cupboards
the place is a little sketchy, parking was really tight, staff seemed to be very busy all the time.
Our NON SMOKING room smelled like smoke and Marijuana,
Somebody's leftover food was left in the cupboard.
Overall, I would say skip this one, there are a lot nicer places around for the same money/points.
When I informed the front desk they said sorry and then answered the phone.
Will not be back

Clean rooms, entrance, waiting area and quiet. Bed was comfortable, not to soft or too hard. Security in parking lot to watch vehicle while we cruised. Staff very helpful with helping to find transportation to ship. Good food selection for breakfast and reasonably priced for everything included. We had 3 rooms and 10 people. Internet service worked good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nuke74 Clean room, quiet sleep
The hotel area and the room were clean and tidy. The room was spacious and comforting. The beds were large, but the mattresses were too soft which led to back pain. There needs to be more support for the spine.
Wireless internet was poor at best, in fact it was unusable. This has to be improved soon!!!
The staff was friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Hotel - A Little High Priced
Overall we liked our stay at the hotel. The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast choices were broad but the food was a little bland (especially the eggs??).
Maid service was OK, but not great. We didn't have our garbage picked up one day and some used cups were left lying around.
Hotel is the only decent one in the near North Side, so their prices are a little high (ave $175/night).

I live out of town and my grandson lives close to here so I kept him overnight so my daughter and her husband could get caught up on their kitchen remodel. It gave them a break and filled my love cup up to the top!

We needed a place to stay while we were in the process of moving into our new home. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice our stay at Holiday Inn Express on Aurora Ave in North Seattle was. We would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed the stay and the pool was very nice to relax in. We thought the food was great and it always was plenty. So next time we are in Seattle we will probably contact you for a place to stay. Thanks for your hospitality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Auk Excellent Overall
This property is a good, fresh, no-surprises hotel. I found it a little expensive, but for a hotel as close to our family in Seattle as it is, it's worth the convenience.
I would have preferred that breakfast start at 6:00 AM instead of 6:30. An earlier start time would allow us to eat, then check out and not be so rushed.
Room and food quality were excellent, and the Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bejoel No Internet service in rooms. Comfortable beds.
We were not the only guests at this hotel who had NO internet service in the rooms. We did notify the front desk and they say, "sorry, tall apartment buildings cause problems." My reply is fix it! If you plan to check in here be sure you get a room close to the lobby, otherwise, forget it. Overpriced. 3% AAA discount!!!
On the positive side, the bed was very comfortable and sheets were soft.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by celticwnb Despite good service, major design flaw
While I generally was satisfied with my stay here, who on earth made the decision to site the ash trays/smoking area right in front of the entrance? Beside being of questionable legality under Washington law, I do NOT want to have to wade through clouds of smoke when entering or exiting the hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRB 53 Pleasant, Jaw Dropping Surprise!
The clean, modern, exceptionally well-maintained property was staffed by very friendly people who conversed easily and helpfully. Alyson in particular.took an interest in my USMC sweatshirt which was meaningful. The room was neat as a pin, and the breakfast had everything an Express Hotel should provide, as well as this great WiFi I'm using now.
Frankly, Aurora Avenue in south Shoreline did not hold a high level of expectation on my part, so to find a first class hotel stay in this area was astonishing and welcome. Thanks!! Great to be an IHG member!

I can't say one bad thing about this Holiday Inn Express. It even smelled new. They said they remodeled in 2012, but everything looked new. Very nice staff. Great price. Traffic can be heavy on Aurora, going towards downtown during rush hour.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jaster7474 Solid out of the way choice.
If you have a car, I would recommend staying here. It's a little out of the way. However, the rooms are large. The breakfast choices are plentiful. The parking is free. And the rate is economical.

Seattle has lots of big meetings...but you don't want them in your hotel at the end of the day. Food was close by and really good and diverse. I will stay there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dorryk Not a business hotel
We stayed three nights in a King Suite and did not have consistent internet service at any time. This is the third time I have had to write this review, as I keep getting disconnected. The location is ok. Staff is friendly, especially the ones who help with the morning breakfast - always happy and helpful. The room was ok - have stayed in better HI Express, but also worse. I would not recommend this to any traveler who needs to have consistent internet access to catch up on work or e-mails...beyond frustrating!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tkay51 The best facility around.
This certainly isn't the first time I have written a review about this facility and more likely than not it won't be my last. In my work, I have traveled over the Puget Sound region and have stayed at some 50 different establishments in just over a year. The North Seattle / Shoreline Holiday Inn & Suites is the best of all the facilities I have stayed in, Some hotels are far higher priced and well known luxury hotels. They do not come close to comparing to the amenities I find at your establishment. You have the best staff-always friendly and efficient and make my stay away from home feel more like home. The facility is always clean and quiet, the beds are very comfortable, and it is among the safest of hotels I have stayed in. Thank you to all the excellent staff employed at North Seattle / Shoreline.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by C & B Ideal location for our travel needs
We had traveled to Seattle to visit family and this HIE location was perfect for our daily trips into and around the city. The front desk staff greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome. Our only criticism was a non-functioning toilet in our room when we checked in. We were going out for the rest of the day and notified the desk of the problem on our way out. We were told the maintenance staff would take care of it while we were out. When we returned several hours later, the maintenance man was just showing up and told us he would be back in the morning to make repairs. We were disappointed that no one thought to offer us an opportunity to relocate to another room. The rest of our week long stay was wonderful. Our room was maintained impeccably by the maid staff, the breakfast buffet was fresh and generous every day, and the staff was consistently friendly. An overall great experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lemay96 As usual, internet was not reliable
What is becoming standard with Holiday Inn Express, the wireless internet provided was non-existent unless you are on the first floor, or lobby. If you are going to offer it, get it right or go back to hard wired. I swear, 90 percent of the HIE's don't get this right!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CURLNJ Overall a Good Expierence
This was my first trip to the Seattle area. We stayed at this property for 9 nights to attend the U.S. Junior Curling National Championships.
I will list the things that stood out. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was okay, but it was what I expected for this type of property. The property was clean and in good shape, but I did have some concerns.
The room was smaller than expected. The room was very hot and humid and stuffy. I would open the window at night just to get some fresh air into the room. The bed and pillows were not that comfortable and the I got a stiff neck my first night which lasted several days.
The Wi-Fi Internet service was spotty in the rooms. I saw other people out in the hallway sitting just to get a single. I did have to work for periods of time during my stay, so I either had to hook my computer up to the hardwire in my room which forced me to sit at the desk or go down to the dinning area for a good Wifi single.
I went to the gym to workout the first morning I was there, only to find that several pieces of the equipment were either out of service or not working.
I would stay here again due to the proximity of the hotel to my venue, but I would at least know what to expect the next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dad of 3 Simply Great!!
We spent Christmas in Seattle and this was our second time staying at this location. We absolutely enjoyed our stay! The hotel is nice, clean, and contemporary. There were lots of food choices at breakfast. On Christmas day, which landed on a weekday, they extended the breakfast hour to half an hour longer (like it was a weekend). There are lots of free parking and the area feels very safe. The hotel is only a short drive to downtown and other attractions like the Woodland Zoo. The best part is that the pool opens 24 hours! I would definitely recommend staying here if you are traveling with kids. We will stay here again when we go back to Seattle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KRR1 Amazing Cleaning Service
Location was great, we even had a view of downtown Seattle and space needle from the room.. it was at a distance but the entire skyline!.. Staff especially the cleaning folks were amazing.. they were fast, kind and room was so clean I felt I could walk barefoot around the room and let the kids roll on the ground! Rooms are not very large but enough space. We stayed 2 weeks and really were grateful for the breakfast and pool.
Had never stayed at a Holiday Inn express and did not pick this hotel.. did the travelocity unknown hotel- where you type in your needs and price range and you do not know where you are staying till you pay...
