I have no restriction of time when to arrive or leave since you come a long way traveling, Note: CHECK IN TIME starting at 1 pm but you may check in ( drop off your luggage ) when ever you get in town. Early check in is possible as long as the room is open . I am a frequent traveler so I understand.
Despite living in the middle of the city, we live in a very quiet neighborhood. Seattle's diverse Mt. Baker Neighborhood is north of Columbia City, 25 minute bus ride close to downtown Seattle and has its own light rail station Mt. Baker. The house is two blocks to a major street, where buses run every few minute to downtown ( Rainier ave), There is a big grocery store near by.

Beth was very warm & welcoming. Arrival experience was nice, she helped me with my luggage. Her home is very cozy. Very comfortable room, perfect fit for a traveler. Room came with towels & extra blankets. Nice touch with coffee, tea & light fruit/snacks in the living room. Location is a short walk to city transit which takes no more than 10-15 minutes to get to downtown Seattle. Perfect spot.
The good thing about the place is you have to whole upstairs for yourself and you can go sleep in the bedroom when you feel like.
I had a good feeling about staying at Beth's Place.
Betty' daughter greeted me at the door and welcomed me to the house. The location wasn't a far walk from the bus and not far from the city on bike. The neighborhood was clean and friendly. Betty had two other guests staying there. Both were kind, friendly and trustworthy.
Betty is a caring person and was nice to talk to. If I'm traveling back through Seattle, I will try to find her again.
When I first arrived, Beth's aunt, Didi was there to greet me at the door. She made me some tea and we talked for an hour or so with another guest. It was a very welcoming environment. Beth herself was incredibly accommodating to my needs. She left me her pass-code and I was able to come and go at a late hour (necessary due to my conference in Seattle). She left breakfast on the table for me every morning. In terms of connectivity, the house is a 5 minute walk from the #7 bus which gets you anywhere downtown, and 20 minutes from the nearest LINK station - very good!
