Needs better ventilation
We stayed on a rainy September night, and it was unbearably hot in the room. There is a floor fan, and windows but the windows are literally on the ground floor of a very, very happening Friday night - tons of people, partying, etc. That part was okay but leaving the tall windows open with so many people was not a feeling of safety. The room was so hot, it was as if when we opened the door in the morning we could breathe again, similar to the feeling of holding your breath under water and then coming up. We both woke up with migraine headaches - which is very rare. Perhaps it was from an unventilated, hot room.

It was quite small, but comfy. I loved the decor. I was shocked to learn that it had shared bathrooms. The bathrooms were very clean so that was a plus. It was also stuffy. Worked for me because I prefer warmth.

Exceptional 10.0
Not for everyone but definitely for me.
Let’s start with the negatives, no air conditioning and shared bathroom. To be fair, the fan in the window did the job and the bathroom was always available and never smelled bad. Staff was responsive and friendly. Staying in Ballard was awesome. It’s was great to come back to the hotel after doing tourist stuff and strolling through Th neighborhood. Great food in Ballard. I don’t drive but the bus was not far. Will stay there my next trip to Seattle.

Location was great. Streets not too noisy. No air conditioning so if hot they have little fans

Hotel is nice for how old it is. But the shared bathrooms and tiny non-air conditioned rooms are not comfortable.

Very good 8.0
Other than the hotel not having ac everything was great. Looking forward to a fall or spring trip here with cooler weather so the ac situation doesn't factor in. The hotel supplied a fan but at 29C it was still pretty warm.
