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.

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!
Beth was a very gracious host, she was prompt in responding and the room was hotel quality.
Beth was a great host! The room is perfect for a visitor in town for a short stay: it's clean, quiet, and Beth even provides complimentary bottles of water & coffee in the morning!
Beth and her family are amazing! Reaching the apartment from the airport using public transportation was very easy, the neighborhood is nice and peaceful and very close to the house there's a bus stop for the bus going downtown. The apartment was super clean, so was the room, which also had plenty of space for storage. In the room you'll find a lot of maps and flyers to visit the city, and Beth will also give you very useful advices. You'll also find clean towels, bottles of water, coffe, tea and fruit for you brakfast. Beth and DD, her aunt, are very nice, they'll make you feel at home! I'll stay there again as soon as I'll get the chance to come back to Seattle.
The space was very cozy and clean. I felt right at home. The location is great. Very close to West Seattle and Downtown. I definitely recommend this location and would love to return when I am back in Seattle for work. Thanks Beth!
Beth and her family were excellent hosts:) was easy to get around seattle because transit ran close to her house. She was warm and welcome and I'd strongly recommend staying with her :)
Beth is a gracious hostess, and loves to meet travelers from other cultures. She has a warm and welcoming house, and provides great coffee, muffins, or toast every morning. Beth knows a lot about where to find Seattle sites and events, and very helpful to her guests.
