Convenient Bed and breakfast in Phinney Ridge, Room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Inn Keeper was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was very good during the 8 days I was there. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to whomever would check it's credentials. The other people visiting were very nice and interesting also.

B&Bs are convenient and generally fun. The 9 Crane's B&B exceeded our expectations. The facility was extraordinarily clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was more than acceptable. The location proved satisfactory for our pursuits and we will look to stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently prior to going on a cruise to Alaska. The property is well located in the lovely neighbourhood of Phinney Ridge with the Zoo, Green Lake and a range of restaurants all nearby.

9 Cranes Inn is a lovely B&B north of downtown Seattle. The entire house was beautifully furnished with an old-fashion theme. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was amazing! Highly recommended

We loved spending part of our honeymoon at 9 Cranes Inn. Everything was perfect, impeccably clean, and super comfortable. The room was spotless and decorated very nicely. There was even a dressing table where I could sit and do my makeup which was nice. All the amenities were provided including soft drinks and coffee whenever needed. Breakfast was above and... More
