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.

My husband and I and grandchildren stayed at this hotel for one night (so their parents could have a date night) We were very impressed. The rooms were very nice, the kids loved the indoor pool and hot tub, very easy access onto I-5 and good full breakfast included in price. Denny's was right next door for dinner. We would... More

Stayed here many times on business. Very good location and very clean. Staff is polite and pleasant. However, this can be a very noisy htel due to the freeway. Make sure you ask for a room away from the highway. Last stay there, slipped my mind and got to listen to traffic from 4am on.

First off, the value of the rooms is fine. Like other Holiday Inn Express hotels I've stayed in, this property is clean and the hotel is easy/convenient to find. That said, I would look for a different place to stay again given the choice. We booked here as part of a team sports tournament and from the moment we arrived,... More

Arrived here after a 10 hour flight from East coast. Everyone friendly and helpful. Visited Olympic Nat. Park, Mount. Rainier Nat. Park, Mount St. Helens and Snoqualmie Falls. Used Reward Points and was upgraded. Great location for visiting these areas and avoiding Seattle traffic. We stayed several days. Wonderful breakfast.

In the Tacoma area to attend my brother- in- laws funeral. Location was convenient for relatives in the area. Room was your average hotel room. It was clean. Very noisy (traffic) especially being on first floor right next to freeway. No noise in hotel. Comp breakfast was very good.

Hotel is very spacious and clean. Front entrance and lobby are inviting. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The staff went out of their way and were very helpful. Rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Hotel is next to I-5 so don't leave your window open at night. Only negative was slow wifi
