We wanted a place close to the stadium...found it online...charming "European style" it read. This was an absolute hell hole. Dead bugs everywhere, unbelievable stench and blood stains down the torn up wallpaper...right out of a horror movie!

Not surprised by the previous review. Actually I am surprised you made it out without more problems. The Commodore was a flop house. We have seen constant drug deals from the windows of the Commodore with the corner payphone and even furniture and clothing being thrown out the windows. We called the police once because suitcases were being thrown out the window onto cars below. Before the police showed up a woman came down and cut up most of the items with a knife. The Commodore is being demolished next month to make way for more condos. Hate to see a fine old structure removed but as for the "hotel" good riddance.

My husband booked the room online. It looked very cute in the pictures. When we arrived we found a shocking scene - one that didn't remotely resemble the website.

To make a long story short, the lobby was full of sketchy junkies (including one guy with no shoes on who was seriously tripping out). Several of them were arguing with the desk clerk because they wanted to go upstairs to visit some buddies but the desk guy said that there were no visitors allowed. We checked in and went to get in the elevator but the guys who argued with the clerk jumped in at the last second, so we were stuck in there with them.

The hallways were full of dirty dishes and other detritus, and it clearly was used as lower-income housing. Our room was filthy and it looked like they had kicked the usual occupant out for us to stay there. Dirty t-shirt hanging in closet, bathroom covered in toothpaste spit, and an odd smell. We stayed in the room only long enough to look through the Yellow Pages to find another hotel room, and then we went back to the desk and asked for a refund. That must happen a lot because it seemed like the clerk had anticipated it and he refunded us with no questions and didn't seem at all suprised. If anything, he seemed a bit sad about it.

i wish it were possible to give a zero rating here. I arrived in seattle and needed a place to sleep for one night while waiting for a friend who lived in the city to arrive. i ended up at the commodore. i should have know something was wrong when i got into the elevator and encountered a hooker who was half-clothed and looked miserable. walking into the room, there was an overwhelming smell that i soon discovered was coming from the bathroom. there was mold and mildew about a foot high from the floor on all of the walls. there were pubic hairs all over the toilet which didn't flush. we had no towels and the front desk said they had none to give us. there were muddy footprints on the bedsheets. i've travelled all over the world and stayed in some seedy places before, but this took the cake. i slept sitting up on a chair in the room. we asked them to hold our bags the next day when we checked out until my friend arrived...they "lost" our bags and we were left to search a storage room for them that smelled so badly i had to leave because i was gagging uncontrollably. it's an atrocity this place exists. no one should pay for such terrible conditions. it's made me terrified of hotels.

It was my first stay abroad. So, I didnt recognize it was that horrible. I mean, since I have stayed in some hotels abroad, I know that this hotel as terrible. Some flies were flying in the bed. The shower didnt give me enough water. I mean, only less warm water came from the tap little by little. Most of the things in the room were dirty. The windows didnt open smoothly. If you want to experience "special unmemorable" night, go for it. I will never do it again, at least.

Arrived late at about 9:00 pm. Planned to stay here for 4 nights and paid in advance online. Big mistake!! Hotel was dirty and their were lots of trays of dirty dishes left in the hallways near guest rooms. A lurking drug dealer tried to follow us into our room. Didn't feel safe with the lock on the door so we placed our suitcases against the door as an added safety measure. Plaster and paint peeling from the ceiling, furniture was scratched and thrashed and there were cigarette burns and stains all over the carpet. No water glasses and was told that housekeeping wasn't there. The tiniest bathroom was unbelievably too small to even maneuver in with the door closed. I asked for another room and they gave me a key to see a renovated room that was cleaner but missing a toilet. We agreed to stay only one night since it was so late and leave at daybreak.... that's how bad we wanted to get out of there. Loud shouting and shady nightlife on street. Parked my rental car in the lot next door, but didn't feel comfortable about that. At least I could see it from my window in my room. I asked for my money back for remaining nights paid and received a credit to my credit card.
When I got back home I contacted the manger to relay my horrible experience and amazingly enough, he refunded my one night's stay by crediting my creditcard. Our worst experience at a hotel ever!!! Do not stay here. Pay the extra $25 and stay at the Best Western.

We went to Seattle for Labor Day Weekend 2002. As soon as we arrived at the Commodore, the tattooed and pierced heavy metal guy at the front desk did not have any record of our internet reservation, nor could he honor our confirmation number. The pictures and advertisements Commodore has in their website is a total lie! Please do not think of coming here unless you were so, so low in cash that you are in the throes of desperation. Unless you enjoy staying in a smelly, tiny room with dirty sheets, cigarette burned bed covers, please do not come here. We ran into a lot of strange characters in this motel (it's almost a welfare motel). I tell you I'm not a picky person since I've frequented hostels before, but this place is beyond hostels. I would have rather stayed in hostels. It's totally dirty. My friend got bed bugs after one night and I could not wait to leave it. We even had to change the light bulbs ourselves since there was no light in the room and the guy at the front desk would not do it. Talk about lousy service. Trust me, I'm writing this because I don't want anyone else to experience this. Even if you're a backpacker, don't even think of coming here.

We stayed here in July and sad to say that all of the above reviews are true. The hotel is dirty - the housekeeping is minimal and to top it off someone from the front desk knocked on our door at 3 in the morning asking if there was a woman in the room as someone outside said they saw someone flashing in the window!! If nothing else, the Commodore has given us cause for laughter as we remember the absolute WORST hotel we ever stayed in.

I stayed at the Commodore back in September. I would have to agree with previous reviews, this is not a good hotel. First off, even the cab driver who drove me and my friends to the hotel asked us why we would stay in that part of the city. The location isn't great, when we booked our room it said we would receive a private bath, which was not true.
We had to share our bathroom with a complete stranger, and overall the place was dirty. I wore my flip flops into the shower because I didn't want to take the risk of catching anything. If your a budget minded traveller, it would definitely be worth the extra money to stay in a nicer hotel, or atleast a hotel in a better location.

Moreover, when we checked in, we discovered the sheets were soaking wet. I don't want to speculate why. On the second day, we were told that the housekeeping staff didn't come in that day, so a desk clerk had come around just to do "the bare minimum"... which apparently didn't include emptying the trash, providing new towels... or in fact anything at all. After that, a stack of library travel books and a journal disappeared from our room - who steals outdated travel books of their own city? The front desk gave us a card with a name of the manager, but whenever we called, he was conveniently not in. They promised us parking - they didn't say that it would be in a lot next door where you had to keep stuffing money into a box at all hours. The neighborhood was not good - many random people yelling at all hours. It's only good point was that is wasn't too far from Pike's place - but you had to go through an even sketchier neighborhood to get there.
