Little noisy and bed on the firm side. Other than that five stars! Nice front desk clerk, lobby, common areas. Have a nice view of Mt. Rainer. Smartly designed room. Fridge and microwave. Large flat TV. Free breakfast area very nice. Shell gas station next door has one of the cheapest prices within two hours drive at this time.

This beautiful hotel is conveniently located just off of the interstate and is within driving distance to SeaTac airport. The cost was reasonable. The front desk staff were incredibly welcoming and kind, the breakfast was plentiful, and the pool was a wonderful 80 degrees. We would stay at this hotel again.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express twice on a recent trip. It was clean, which is most important to me. My room was quiet and they accommodated all my requests easily. For the value of the room compared to rooms in Seattle, it was excellent. It wasn't a long trip to Seattle when I was on my way, but... More

I stayed here for three nights and found the staff friendly and the lobby welcoming. The room was good and well cleaners each day. Breakfast was relatively varied and there was a coin laundry. The pool was indoors and there was a basic fitness room with machines and a few free weights. Biggest downside was the internet - as per... More

Had a horrible experience trying to cancel a reservation with this hotel. Since the AMC flight from Hickam to McChord was cancelled/no seats, and no flights in the near future that I could use, I tried to cancel my booking. Come to find out after the fact that the hotel has a 72-hour cancellation policy (so I would have had... More

This was just a quick overnight stay for my family. When we first checked in, our a/c was not working, I can say they had it going in 5 mins. So that was nice. I agree like others posters have stated, the internet needs help. A hotel of this quality should have reliable internet service. Other then those two things,... More

I stayed at this hotel mid-July and this hotel is no longer a very good choice for the business traveler or anybody else that requires an internet connection for any reason. The network connection was exceedingly slow - reminiscent of dial-up days. If you need a stable and reliable internet connection, you best look elsewhere.

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express - clean, efficient and fine for a night or two stay. It's right off the freeway. Breakfast was pretty good. Check in was quick and easy. Rooms were clean. We reserved a king room but got two queen beds.

This is the best HIE I've ever stayed at, and I've stayed at 20-30 different HIEs across multiple states. Superfast internet, hot pool and spa, hot breakfast and freshly baked cookies in the evening. Everything was perfect.

I was going to overlook the curtain falling down off the hook, but it got worse. We stayed in room 105, with a roll-in shower. The bathroom door opens into the entry way that makes it very difficult for a wheelchair to enter the bathroom. You have to close the door, pass it, back into the corner, open the door,... More

Dear ScrappyTexan, We appreciate you taking the time to write a review as we rely on our guest's feedback in order to improve our services.
