Hotel Review: Mediterranean Inn

The hotel is exceptional for families as it is nice but not fancy. There are many amenities to make the stay comfortable, and the area couldn’t be more central especially if you are looking to see more than downtown.

Entering the Hotel
The lobby has coffee, tea and a container of cold water loaded with fresh lemon and orange slices. If you are in the mood for a more fu-fu coffee, you are in luck as there is a Starbucks connected to the lobby.
There are also a small gym, laundry room, computer room (with a printer), and smart device chargers surrounding the lobby.

Location
Excellent location next to Icons: Seattle Center, Dick’s and SIFF Cinemas. Queen Anne has many restaurants that are Seattle staples along with grocery stores, drug stores, and a hidden gem-Nielson’s Pastries.

What sets this hotel apart from others in the area
Beautiful rooftop deck with views of the Puget Sound and the Space Needle. If you want to pop a bottle of wine while watching the sunset, head to the front desk for glasses and a bottle opener.
Easy access to bus and complimentary bikes. In line with keeping the Emerald City green, the hotel is a Green Leader Hotel. There are little plaques all over the room letting you know how you can conserve by reusing towels or bedding.

Rooms
Some rooms have sound or Space Needle views; mine just missed out on the Space Needle.The size of room: not big but more than adequate with a King size bed, kitchenette, and medium size bathroom with vibrant smelling peppermint essential oil bath products. Free mini bar treats in the room include Coffee, tea, and popcorn. With a fridge and microwave don’t hesitate to go to local groceries like the Met Market to try what the locals are eating.

Parking
There is paid parking available at the hotel, but there is usually street parking in the area. If you plan on staying out late, you can park for free from 8am-8pm on the street as long as there isn’t a SIFF, Seattle Center, or Key Arena event. Daytime parking is more hit and miss, but will save you $18 a day.

My Experience
During this stay, I was with my mom and son as we came to Seattle on short notice to be with my grandmother as she passed. The hotel was a last minute thought, and I didn’t know how long we needed to stay. Thankfully, staff was amenable to letting us remain in the same room even though I made a different reservation three times. They gave us free detergent for washing clothes and upgraded our bed when they found out we came for somber reasons.

  1. Seattle is such a cool/weird place to visit. I am always looking for good options on accommodations, they just seem so overpriced!

    1. Jen, I paid from $85-126 per night. Unheard of for Seattle. The Expedia apps seems to have better rates. Cost also depends on events in the area since major attractions and venues are right there. Much better option for off season
