Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 1Vettebudman Tough night with elephant or two upstairs!
Requested top floor but not available on arrival and suggested the fourth floor would be quiet--No Way! We had a elephant or two stomping around from 9PM until about 12:30AM. The trash pickup at about 5AM is a startling effect with the elephants above roaming about 5:30AM. I will never again give in to a floor other than TOP floor, not by elevator, ice machine, exit door. Other than upstairs the stay was OK. The facility is great but the inconsiderate travelers are the problem and has nothing to do with the property.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express by the Sea-Tac Airport because of its convenience to the airport and its free shuttle.
I am a Gold IHG Awards member and was upgraded to a suite for the night. Unfortunately, my stay was very short, so I did not have the opportunity to take advantage of the extra space. The only complaint about the room that I have is that the living room area is a little dark -- there is no lighting on one side of the room.
The breakfast is much like breakfasts at other Holiday Inn Expresses -- eggs and sausage and biscuits, as well as cereals, fruit, and juices, etc. There was plenty of food, and the breakfast is served during a fairly wide window of availability, even over the weekend.
The only thing that detracted from my stay was the availability of the shuttle to pick me up from the airport. I had to wait at the airport for about 1/2 hour, even though the airport and hotel are only 2 miles apart. I believe that the hotel lets guests use the shuttle to take them to other places, so it's not always immediately available for airport runs in the evening. However, I was compensated with 5000 bonus IHG reward points for the trouble.

You post a sign in the bathroom on How to Help Our Environment and then it is ignored. I hung my towel every day on the shower rod and every day I got a clean one. I reported this to IHG and was told that a representaive from the hotel would contact me. This never happened and even after I caleed IHG, I received clean towels daily. Do what your signs say or take them down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeeOct Good night sleep
Front desk personnel were very nice. Popcorn and bottle of water was a nice welcome gift. Stayed on second floor in a 2 room suite. Suite divided into two room: one bedroom with TV, other living room and kitchen with a large frig, microwave, and two burners and with desk, sofa, chair, coffee table and TV. Was nice to sit and eat dinner away from bedroom. Only two glasses in cabinet. Note to call desk for dishes to cook with. The decor was older. Quiet night for great sleep--no noise from outside or hallway. Next to front desk, small room with frozen food, snacks, drinks to buy. Transportation to airport in morning comes every 30 minutes. Breakfast was great.

I was checked in quickly, but did not have an ice-bucket in my room. The front desk sent their driver up who was lovely enough to get me ice as well. Everyone was pleasant and helpful.

Excellent service on everything! All staff on all shifts were extremely helpful and pleasant, and the rooms were very nice. Bought the Seattle package and was surprised at what we received. Free Shuttle to Blue Rail, 2 tickets for the rail for 2 days (total of 4 tickets), 4 drinks, 4 bags of chips, 4 candy bars.... list goes on and on. This was an excellent way to visit downtown without driving.
Hope they keep this package as I plan to return often!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kenny52 Good sleep and close to the SEATAC airport
I was not comfortable by not being provided with the receipt of my stay by the Hotel Receptionist.
I made my hotel reservation on line through Google search. I did not realize that the search site took me through one of the sites that provides services for hotel booking. Even though during the check in, the receptionist took and verified my credit card, during the check-out he would not provide me a receipt. He indicated that since I booked and paid through the agency (Hotel one), he could not see the price. Off course, this was an issue for me not able to provide the breakdown of the room fee and the tax associated with it to the company for my expenses.

Great Value and helpful staff and close to the airport if you need to catch the early flights next day.
1. Noted some patched / cracked flooring in the elevators indicating it is an older property needing some remodeling / upgrades.

Convenietly located, however, street name changes when we were coming from the other side of town. Got lost there for a little bit.
Beds are comfortable but could hear cars passing thru main street.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NickSt Staff and Service
Your staff was fine. Your service leaves one wanting. I'm travelling on business and during the day I'm making sales calla. At night and on into the mornings I have a lot of computer work to do. Your WIFi was troublesome in the evening and down in the morning with no explanation from the staff other than the A team was coming in at 9:00AM. Unfortunately I'm gone by then sitting at a McDonalds using their WiFI. Your rooms are fine, your staff is OK, but if I can't do what I have to on the road, then I'll have to find a hotel that will allow that. I'm sure I'm not the only one that was there with this opinion from the comments I heard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJR957 Very pleased with the Holiday Inn Express
Even though I live within 40 minutes of driving to the airport we had a very early departure for our flight. This was the first time I ever booked at a hotel in the area to stay in. I read the reviews for many of the hotels before selecting this one. I couldn't have been more pleased. We were greeted very nicely at the front desk, giving us water and a snack. We were informed of all the amenities but didn't have the chance to use any due to our early departure. Upon entering our room I found it very clean and modern. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. We were given complimentary travel to the airport which was a bonus. I would definitely stay there again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonny63453 Not the Holiday Inn right next to SeaTac
This is not the Holiday Inn right next to SeaTac. It's the Holiday Inn Express about 1.5 miles from SeaTac.
Apparently lots of people have this confusion.
But it's a fine motel - for some reason I ended up with a gigantic suite without asking. And the breakfast was very good compared to the standard motel.
And it has a fitness room!

I used a Amex card to book the stay. Then I called the hotel 2 times asking to switch the payment by my IHG Visa card, because can get more points. . They charged my IHG card again but did not return my 1st pay until I showed up at the hotel. And they made another mistake by returned my deposit to my IHG instead of the 1st one. I lost 5X of my points because of that. I am very disappointed to the hotel's service by making mistakes again and again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ben74 Platinum memeber and I suggest that you check your sheets here, they may be dirty
I travel to Seattle a few times a year for business. I stay at this hotel one or two nights each trip because of the proximity to the airport. I am a Platinum member with IHG. I like this hotel a lot. However, the last time I stayed (last week) they gave me a room that was not completely cleaned. The bed was made, but the sheets were clearly leftover from the previous guest and not switch out by the maids, thankfully I spotted the crumbs and hair before it was too late. There was a small amount of trash around the room. They switched me aright away, but the signs of the previous guest were subtle and could easily be missed (there were only a couple of pieces of trash). I hope the previous guest did not have a companion in the bed with him, that would have been even more disgusting.
This makes me wonder if I have slept on dirty sheets from a previous guest before. Check your sheets!!!

The hotel was comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful, the suite was nice a roomy. Only suggestion would be to add a splash of color to offset the blandness.
Hotel has easy walk to a park across the street on the small lake. If you have a vehicle, I recommend the short drive to the state park which has a beautiful view and picnic facilities.
Easy access to the airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cwm2013 Great location, helpful staff, slow elevators
Great location, inviting entry area, non smoking room was previous a smoking room and could still smell it in the walls, but they moved us to a new room without any question. Was there with a group and they allowed us to use the entry space to do some packing of supplies, and allowed us to ship all our supplies to the hotel directly. Elevators were very slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marigupen A very relaxing way to catch a plane early the next morning.
With having to be at the airport 2 hours before departure, it's sometimes just to much to get up at 2a.m., drive for 3 hours to the airport, and be ready for a 8a.m. departure.
So i chose to spend the night at the Seattle Sea-Tac Holiday Inn Express Hotel.
What a treat it was. From the front desk, where they helped me to print out my boarding passes, the clean and very comfortable room, the great breakfast, to the convenient shuttle to the airport, where I was dropped off right in front of my airline gate.
What else could one ask for. A great way to end a vacation.
I'll do it again and again.
