A HISTORY OF HOSTING

Back in the early 1960s, travelers all over the country were filling their tanks with gas that averaged 30¢ a gallon. We like to think that some of them were heading our way, to stay in the very first rooms ever built on the site that’s now home to The Grove, West Seattle Inn.

Over the years, this property has seen its fair share of changes. But it wasn’t until 2010, when a local West Seattle family assumed ownership, that The Grove took on a new look, and a refreshing new take on modern, clean and comfortable lodging.
