Fantastic B&B, a real gem

5 on October 09, 2017

We stayed in the Diamond Suite, it was fabulous, spacious, nicely furnished and very clean. Breakfast each day was amazing, I am vegetarian and Melanie and Tom were more than happy to cater to my dietary requirements. The house was very clean and warm and welcoming. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone. It is central to transport (Tlink and bus) and has heaps of lovely cafes and restaurants around.

Great for the tired conference go-er!

Short: Had the pleasure of staying here Nov 2014. Very clean, very quiet, definitely a good deal, and yet very close to the down town conference center! I will certainly try and book here again for the 2015 Fall conference! Longer: The owner, Dave, was very helpful, and as I was (almost) a first time visitor to Seattle, having not visited in decades, he kindly gave me a run down of the local amenities and bus system, which was extremely helpful. I especially liked how quiet the inn is, located on a calm street away from the hustle and bustle fo the city - when you are in a day long conference with 7 thousand noisy people, you just need somewhere to recover! I found the room to be tip top tidy and clean - in fact, much cleaner than many expensive hotels I've been to costing twice as much. Finally, my travel plans changed a bit due to weather conditions, so I very much appreciated that Dave was flexible with the check-in time.

Good weekend

I booked this B&B online and hit the jackpot. We walked downtown and back. It was a great stay with great food. Celebrated our 28th anniversary.

Great Seattle Visit

Our first visit to Seattle was fabulous as we stayed at the 11th Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast. David, Tominda, Ben and Albert all took excellent care of us. The location was close to public transit as we elected to not a car. When we checked in, David provided a very comprehensive list of nearby restaurants we could easily walk to. David also provided great ideas for transportation to the Inn when we arrived at Sea-Tac airport. The property was absolutely gorgeous and the service was very responsive. The rooms were very clean, the breakfasts were excellent and there was coffee and hot water for tea or hot chocolate available 24 hours a day. David also had fresh fruit available as well as mixed nuts, chocolates and pistachios. Finally, David also provided high speed internet as well as two work stations with a printer. I don't know how David and his staff could improve our experience! When we return to Seattle, we will certainly stay at 11th Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast again.

Fantastic place to stay

Right from the start we felt welcomed. David (the owner) met us and helped us with our bags and checked us in. (early) The home itself is beautiful and very comfortable. Our room was on the top floor and it was perfect. The bed was very comfortable, the room (the whole house) was very clean and tidy. The pictures of the B&B on their website does not do the home justice. It is lovely. The breakfasts were very tasty and having company around to chat with while eating and starting the day was great. It is in a great location, we did not have to drive around. We walked the neighborhood and had our dinners near the B&B. We took the bus to local attractions. (David provided wonderful maps and bus routes for us. VERY Helpful) It was my first time to Seattle and I know without a doubt that my husband and I will be back to visit again and we will be staying at this charming B&B again. There is not one thing negative to say about this B&B.

THE place to stay in Seattle...

5 on November 16, 2014

I was travelling alone, and decided that bed and breakfast accommodation would be friendlier than a hotel. I am so glad I chose the 11th Avenue Inn. The owner, David and his staff were really kind, and very helpful at all times. I stayed for a few nights at each end of my journey into the States, a different room each time; both were excellent, comfortable beds with quality bedding; nice bathrooms with lovely toiletries. The breakfasts were superb. It was also really convenient having the use of a computer and telephone in the "den". To anyone seeking for a place to stay in Seattle I can highly recommend this hostelry.

Outstanding B&B in Seattle

5 on September 16, 2014

The 11th Avenue Inn is a charming B&B in an excellent location. The inn is spotlessly clean, our room was comfortable, and the breakfasts were outstanding. We would stay there again if we return to Seattle.

Best customer service

Unfortunately we didnt get to stay here. My husband and I had reservations but our plans changed last minute. David was extremely kind, responsive and understanding. He even sent an email of other options. Thank you David

Fabulous Vacation
