Very comfortable and clean place to stay. Good location near to Airport, supermarket and Ihop. Bus stops right outside. Friendly with a great restaurant with fantastic waitresses! Stayed a few nights whilst on holiday from New Zealand. Can't wait to return.

We were just staying one night so my wife and boys could fly out of Seattle airport the next day. The hotel didn't look too impressive driving up and checking in. Once inside. however, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nicely equipped and very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool. The room was quiet and it was a nice place to stay for the night. The breakfat was a step up from just coffee and pastries, and was quite good, although they were a bit slow at replacing dishes that were empty. The staff was helpful and courteous and the shuttle service was great. I would definitely stay there again .

We found you motel to be quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. Part of the reason we chose your facility was its proximity to SeaTac airport and we took advantage of your parking options and airport shuttle. We were however, very disappointed with the shuttle service upon our return. We called three times from the airport and ended up waiting for an hour and 15 minutes before it arrived to pick us up. In that time, shuttles from every other motel/hotel in the area made at least 4 passes through the airport, picking up their customers. We were frustrated, to say the least, and the time approaching 1:00 am. before we got back to the motel, turned us off from staying with you again anytime in the near future. There are many other options available and we will be trying some place else shortly.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Airport Executel Hotel

Smells like smoke, no hot water, unclean rooms. Plain DISGUSTING!

from BooHoward
My husband, son and I (plus 6 other family members) shared joint rooms at this hotel for the night of 9/2/06. What a mess! They were kind enough to give us joint rooms though we had booked with but that was it. The rooms were DISGUSTING with hair (not ours) in the "cleaned" bathrooms, grungy floors (I wore flip-flops at ALL times), the ENTIRE hotel smelled like SMOKE and there NO HOT WATER to shower with. Boy, that'll wake you up in the a.m.! If you have a plane to catch that's NOT the way to start your day. We weren't there to have convenience of the airport access though... At one point my nephew threw a toy and it landed under the bed - have you heard the phrase "Be afraid, be VERY afraid". Never look under their beds if you want to sleep that night. There was food, jewelry, papers, etc. It was flat scary! Never again in all my days!

easy car rental return at airport....oversized room....Hot buffet brkfast

from Happyscamper
We had an early flight and needed to return our rental car. Hotel is less than 10 minutes away with easy access. Continental breakfast consisited of hot hard boiled eggs,hot biscuits with gravy, plus pastries,fruits,cereals,etc. Our room was oversized 2 queens plus twin cot w/ room to spread out. Front desk-excellent service. Everything was clean....great for families. Close to airport in a safe area.

My first stay here

from SenseIntoDollars
Earlier in the year I decided to take a trip to the Canadian Rockies, and tried without success to get award tickets to Vancouver or Calgary, but I could get a free flight to Seattle.

So I decided to fly to Seattle, take Amtrak to Vancouver, rent a car and enjoy western Canada. My flight got me to Seattle where I had booked a room through Hotwire at this hotel for $32, which was $25 less than the local Motel 6. So I was apprehensive.

I arrived before the 2 p.m. check-in, dropped off my luggage, and walked north to eat lunch at the corner IHOP. I got back, still before 2, and was checked in to a room on the top floor. It was a little small, but very clean, quiet, and comfortable. In the morning I had a very good free breakfast, checked out, and caught the bus to the downtown train station.

A Westin it is not, but for the price, including breakfast, it made me rethink the gripes I read on this site before leaving on my trip.

Not a bad hotel

from gordon fan
I stayed here with my boyfriend and his family one night before our early flight back to Connecticut the next morning. We took a taxi from the Pier (Alaskan Cruise) to this hotel and we were there very early: 10:30am. Obvisously, no rooms were available but they were more than happy to store our luggage and let us use the phone to rent a car to drive back to downtown Seattle. Later on, when we got back to the hotel (7:30) there was a little problem with our rooms (which we had already spoke to someone earlier). Needless to say, they gave us an extra room for free because I think they gave one of our rooms away. So, they were very nice about it. The man shuttling people back and forth to the airport was so nice and had a great personality, really funny! There seemed like a lot of places to eat along that strip, it might be tough to cross the street though, we chose the IHOP up the street. The rooms were huge and there were a lot of channels on the TV. The only thing I would suggest is that you to make sure is that you sign up for the shuttle, especially if you have an early flight because the seats fill up fast. In fact, the shuttle time we wanted to take was already filled but the front desk was nice enough to call another hotel and get us one for 6:30 in the morning. Breakfast is free but nothing that great was there. All in all a pretty good hotel!

Dingy and Depressing

from SASNY
I never expect luxury accommodations at airport motels, but this place was the pits! As soon as we drove up to the place, we knew it was a mistake. The halls were dark and musty. The rooms were sorely in need of updating and also had a musty odor. The mattress was old and uncomfortable, too. The high speed internet access in the room didn't work, and the staff was no help in resolving the issue. If you have any alternatives, stay somewhere else.

Hotel Was Fine

from A TripAdvisor Member
My granddaughter and I stayed here last night. We had a rental car so we didn't use the shuttle. She used the pool and yes it had a lot of chlorine in it - most motel pools do. The breakfast was adequate. For a two star the motel was a pleasant surprise. I used an award night. I did not find any graffiti, bad odor or any of the other complaints. It is a strange layout but coming off a cruise ship it was easy enough to figure out. I would stay here again. The fitness room has 3 pieces of equipment. Our room was clean and fresh smelling.

Good value

from yvr1
I stay at the BW Executel numerous times thoughout the year. I have just returned from my last visit. I find the hotel to be clean, yes there is the faint oder of smoke in the hallways from the smoking rooms, but I always have a non smoking room and it is fine. The hotel is laid out in a T pattern and yes just like any large hotel there is some walking to the rooms, there is an elevator that services the floors.The room is large, clean and comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. There is a business center with free internet 24 hrs. The shuttle sometimes runs late, especially in the morning so book one that is a little earlier than you need. There is a continental breakfast which is ok, nothing great to it, there is a Ihop about a 10 minute walk away from the hotel. Also if you need a grocery store, a large Safeway is located about one half mile south of the hotel. There is a local bus stop across from the hotel, service is every 30 minutes, the bus will take you to the airport, Seattle, or south to Federal Way, I use the service all the time. I would recommend this hotel for value, and cleanliness.

Best Western Should Be Ashamed

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was not nearly up to Best Western standards !! The halls smelled strongly of smoke and other things I could not make out...The carpets were badly stained and hall lighting was very poor ...One elevator for the whole hotel ....The room was clean but getting there was the real problem ...Would not stay here again......

was pleasently surprised

from A TripAdvisor Member
Needed a hotel park n fly for 5 days while going to Disneyland. Awesome hotel good park n fly program shuttle service back and forth to airport was reliable and fast! Would use this hotel again !!!

t find anything else

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel on the 29 Apr 2006 before leaving on a flight to Ft Lauderdale, to catch a cruise. I expected that the motel would be of the regular class of motel that Best Western is known for, what a suprise. The reception desk is the newest thing in the place but don't be fooled. Once you get your card for the door you will notice a musty foul smell of damp stale smoke as you head to your room along the most disgusting low lit, dirty carpeted and scraped hallway I have seen in years. The elevator smells of stale smoke and is marked with graffiti. Once off the elevator you get to your room to find it is clean but has all the class of dorm room.
Would I recommend this motel, no, even at $59.00 you are paying too much.
