Our room was very basic and the decor hadn't been updated in the last 30 years. It did serve its purpose, though, offering a soft bed and a clean bathroom. Storage space was ample. At the same time, the atmosphere was somewhat depressing and I hope I never have to stay in a hotel like this long term.
This hotel has inexpensive rates for Washington and is good for the budget traveler. Kirkland is only 20 minutes outside of Seattle, on the east side of Lake Washington. It has a number of nice restaurants, shopping, and recreation areas.
