Fodor's Review

Travelers seeking an authentic Seattle neighborhood experience will fall hard for this adorable, budget-friendly inn right in the heart of Ballard, tucked between coffee shops, trendy boutiques, and restaurants. It's got character too: the 1909 property is done in a minimalist, modern Louis XIV style, from the giant black rosette chandelier in the black-and-white lobby to the gold-leaf French provincial dressers, blue walls, and quilted headboards in some rooms upstairs. The twelve rooms share private baths. Two of the four suites have separate entrances for a private apartment-like feel.
