My husband and I booked this because of the reviews and the location was close to a job we had. First room had a family of six next door but it sounded like 100 screaming kids. We had to work late so we asked for new room. Second room was super musty (as was the first but we were distracted...

Talaris is a lovely place that offers a unique experience. The natural surroundings are beautifully landscaped, and tranquil. I felt lucky to see the great blue heron and a family of geese. All staff I interacted with were friendly & professional. Some of the reviewers on this site complained about the rooms needing updating, the breakfast, even the wildlife. If...

My office reserved a room for me for a nearby class I was taking. The exterior of the grounds is beautiful and park like. The office staff was efficient and friendly. However, on entering the "lodge" where my room was located, I was immediately hit with a musty old apartment building smell. The bed was fairly comfortable, but the fixtures...

outside grounds great - breakfast very good - staff a little to honest about the conditions - room at 80 degrees could not adjust then open windows and bugs in - college dorm smell in the room and shower you needed a wrench to turn on. Won't discuss the bed condition bust moved out the next morning

An absolutely beautiful place to stay in Seattle. The rooms are old-fashioned, not fancy at all, but clean and comfortable. It's the grounds that make Talaris special. Beautiful gardens, ponds, bald eagles, ducks, geese, tulips, daffodils, weeping willows, peace and quiet surround you. Truly a lovely place.

Comfortable and very clean, good bed, spacious room, beautiful grounds, amazing breakfast makes this a good place to stay for more than one night. The bathroom fixtures need updating and the room furniture (desk, night-stands, closet doors) were showing wear and could use some attention. These aspects detracted because they weren't in sync with the (admittedly) more important things about...

Pro: beautiful, quiet, and peaceful grounds; friendly, courteous and professional staff; remarkably nice breakfast. Con: central air conditioning in all guest rooms that cannot be adjusted by guest (except for rooms in the 'lodge', apparently). The blast of arctic wind coming up from floor, in April, could not be adjusted. Only remedy was to block the vent with our suitcase...

Very friendly staff, clean room, free parking, and great FREE breakfast! There are paths around the different hotel buildings with great landscape and views. There's a bald eagle nest on the property. The eagle has apparently been living there for the past four years. There are two bicycles to borrow free of charge, with a 14 mile bike path nearby....

It was amazing to find this lovely setting so close to downtown. The acreage of trees, ponds, lawns, and wildlife was beautiful and very peaceful. Breakfast is delicious, and served in a room with a wall of windows looking out at the pond and fountain. What a relaxing way to start a busy day!
