Default Everett Kitchenettes

Hi..I have been lurking here for a while greedily reading every scrap of info I can about the area.
My Husband and I are moving with our 2 daughters ( 7 and 15) in mid June.
We are looking at Everett as a place to live for 1 year before we buy. That way we can decide where the best place for our family is.

We have a goodly amount of savings, so we are driving up and renting a motel until we can get jobs to rent an apartment/house...

Can anyone recommend a motel with a kitchenette, not too pricy ( since we might be there a few weeks) that is not in Crack Alley.

Thanks!

PS. What is the Convergence Zone?

Hi kurves. I can't recommend an apartment. Hopefully somebody who is more familiar with Everett can give you some advice on that.

Here's a link I've posted previously on this board about the convergence zone. It's from KOMO TV and explains it fairly well plus gives a map where you can see exactly where it usually occurs. It usually ends up just to the south of Everett although sometimes it will form just north of Everett.

You might look into the Extended Stay/Residence Inn either in Lynnwood or Silverlake (south Everett). They both offer weekly/monthly rates and are really pretty nice for temporary living. Either location would also give you a good feel of the Everett area.

I'd contact the folks at the Inn at Port Gardner and see if you can work something out. They don't have kitchenette suites, per se, but they do have suites with microwaves, small refrigerators, coffee makers, etc. My corporate rate there was better than what extendedstayamerica could offer me - and the facility is just beautiful (right on the marina).

One thing though...I wouldn't move to the area without a job unless you're prepared to be unemployed for quite some time. Also and with the new school year not too far away, you might want to check into enrollment requirements now just to be sure a hotel = a residence.

We are prepared to live for a while without jobs and Hubby is in sales and wil call and send resume before we leave so we should be ok there..I expect it to be impossible to rent without a job ( even though we are prepared to pay several months rent in advance)...So I figured that it would take a month or so to find work..for at least one of us and wanted somewhere to stay.

Does school not start in September? I would expect to be settled by then.

School typically starts after the first weekend in September.... it usually falls somewhere in between the 6th and 9thish...

EDIT - just looked on the calender and the first falls on a Saturday this year... so, I expect it starts that next Monday or Tuesday...
