Wonderfully Friendly with Stunning Views

4.0 on May 16, 2017

We love this B&B and the inn keepers! The Inn Keepers are very friendly and very helpfull. The breakfasts were amazing!!!! The view from the house is amazing. The inn is also close to several bus routes. Being from Houston, where public transit is not that great, if a city has good public transit, we like to use it to get to the sites. Korby is an ex Seattle transit guy and can help you to get almost everywhere. So if you are going to Seattle for any reason, do yourself a favor and stay at the Sleeping Bulldog Inn. Don’t forget to pet the two Bulldogs while you are there! PS. Tell them Mike and Luly sent you.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the kind review! I'm glad that you and Luly had such a great time. It always makes me feel like I have done my job when I get a review like this. I'm always glad to help especially with questions about the transit system. I know that Mojo and Monti were in heaven with all the attention that you poured on them. Come back again anytime!

Perfect place to stay

I had a wonderful 5 day stay. Breakfast was great everyday. Perfect location, everything I was going to was so easy to get to from their place. Monty and Mojo were so fun to play with. Can't wait till September to stay there again!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay. I really enjoyed talking with you and tagging along to see An American in Paris at the Paramount! What a treat that was. We look forward to seeing you in September and getting to meet your husband this next time. Have a great Summer.

Newbies enjoy our first B & B

5 on April 19, 2017

We didn't know what to expect with our first B&B experience, and it could not have been better. Korby was the best. We ended up taking public transportation because Korby helped us with perfect directions and hints. After running around Seattle doing all the touristy things, coming back to the Bulldog was heaven. I can't remember when I slept so good. Thank you so much Korby, and Randal

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the kind review. I'm so glad that your first B&B experience was a good one. We really do strive to make everyones stay with us something that they will always remember! I know that Mojo and Monti are glad to be part of the team to make your experience a great one.

A stay to remember

5 on January 18, 2017

We visited this week and stayed in the New Orleans room. It was our best Bed and Breakfast experience ever. There was not a single detail that was overlooked. The view was gorgeous, the bed was dreamy, the fireplace made the room cozy and the breakfast was to die for. Will definitely be recommending the Sleeping Bulldog to everyone I know.


Fabul-oo-la-la-us!

Love, love, love this place. We had the New Orleans suite for our anniversary. The room was romantic, warm, delightful, pleasant...and in other words, perfect. The innkeepers were knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was "top shelf." PS The bulldogs were marvelous and kept us from missing our "furry faces."


Pefect B&B

5 on September 30, 2016

It was the perfect B&B for celebrating my retirement and 60th birthday gift from my children. Korby/Randle made our stay wonderful from a fantastic breakfast to the tempurpetic bed at night. The house was warm and inviting the way it was decorated,and we loved the fact it was modern and not old! We stayed on the lower level, which was also perfect, didn't hear any noise. You should be proud of your B&B it is lovely and #1 on our list of places we stayed!


Great hosts, great amenities, great dogs!

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Sleeping Bulldog. Very comfortable accommodations, excellent breakfast. Korby and Randal were gracious and welcoming. The location is perfect with great views; it is also close to the bus line. We also really enjoyed playing with the bulldogs!

A wonderful Seattle stay at the Sleeping Bulldog

We had a wonderful time. The room was fantastic. Everything was clean, comfortable and made you feel at home. The breakfast and snacks were superb. The owners were so friendly and accommodating. And of course Mojo and Monte were an added treat. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Seattle. Myron and Gretchen Haas, Pottsville Pa.


Slept well in Seattle

Very clean and comfortable with attention to details. Lots of amenities. To name a few: Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, snacks and bottled beverages in the hallway, heated floors and towel racks in bathrooms, baked goods downstairs to be enjoyed at any time, memory foam mattresses, high thread-count sheets. Innkeepers and there dogs were charming. Breakfasts were fabulous. We will definitely return.
