My wife and I stayed here for only one evening. Our stay was using IHG points for the stay. We were welcomed by Tara at the front desk who also thanked me for being a Platinum IHG member. Tara was pleasant and courteous. I asked if any upgrades were available as the hotel appeared much less than full, but was... More

The hotel is moderately priced offering a Continental Breakfast, indoor swimming pool, and exercise room. The room I stayed in was a bit cramped when attempting to sit at the desk which was squeezed in against the second queen bed. The chair was no adjustable to the height of the desk and this combination made the desk unusable. Because of... More

It is in a busy and industrial area but close to the freeway so you can get anywhere you need to be. I was here for business and they took great care of me. Everything was clean and really no complaints at all. The breakfast was great and opened till 9:30 which is preferred to the old 9 AM.

30 min. South of SEA-TAC Airport and minutes from Madigan Army Medical Center. About a one hour drive to the base of Mt Rainier. I have been to this Hotel four times since early Dec 2014; last stay was two weeks ago. Top notch staff, rooms, breakfast and accommodations every time. I even saw this entire Hotel get a makeover...

The front desk staff welcomed us and helped with directions to local restaurants. Very friendly! The hotel was clean and comfortable. We were given a quiet room facing away from the interstate and even received a free room upgrade as a benefit of our IHG membership. Enjoyed a restful night and plenty of hot coffee downstairs in the morning before... More

Stayed here three nights before moving out of state. Great location right off I-5, close to shopping and the Lakewood Town Center. Hotel was very clean, my room was great, and a quiet stay without ANY noise issues! The hot tub was the best part along with the fresh baked cookies the staff serves everyday. Breakfast was okay and just... More

Stayed at this site on a points stay. Easy to find and very close to anyone with personal or business activity at JBLM. The property is well appointed and recently upgraded. Large monitors and all of the suite amenities in every room. LAN was smokin hot. Good breakfast (standard HIE) with plenty of dining space. Well attended. The area is... More

I enjoyed myself at this location. The free breakfast buffet is not the best but will do. Hot made pancakes, sausage, eggs, cereal. The best part is proximity to Ft. Lewis and the fact that this hotel include four premium channels in the stay. The best TV packaged offered by most hotels.

This is a newer property, although it's located on I-5, the noise level isn't that bad, that is as long as the garbage truck doesn't show up to the Denny's at 5am each morning. The staff is nice and friendly, this hotel is a nice place for short stays.
