Check-in went without a hitch. The first night we were on the second floor, and we arrived late due to flight and rental car issues. Our next door neighbor had a party going on and I know it took my daughter longer to get to sleep than me as I was exhausted from the long day. Around 4 am I... More

We were in Tacoma for a college visit. From the moment we checked in I was impressed with the staff. We were able to check in early and our room was very clean. Imagine my surprise when I opened the curtains and realized we had an amazing view of Mt. Rainier from our room! The staff was always helpful and... More

I really enjoyed my experience here. Although it is an older hotel the room was clean and the service friendly. Price was fair and the hot breakfast was well stocked with the basics. If you are looking for a place that is not too fancy but not a dive this one is just right!

We had some issues the night we stayed at the Tacoma Red Lion. The stay was not bad, but a couple issues arose that I brought to the attention of the hotel manager. The manager Toni, emailed me very quickly and apologized for the problem. She was extremely friendly and very quick to come to a solution. She fixed the... More

For $80/night plus taxes, it really is hard to beat. Nothing fancy but the hotel does the job. The rooms are clean and the internet and parking is free which is great. Same with the breakfast. It is a bit noisy due to the traffic noise. Would I stay here again, yes.

....pay attention to the middle ground. It is not the best but it's far from the worst. I travel for business perhaps 30+ weeks a year and stay at all types of hotels in various types of locations. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for and you see what you see what you look for. This... More

I am a Tacoma native and know of the area this property is located. It was a TERRIBLE area years ago and has come along way. This hotel is not an original Red lion hotel, It was in fact a not very desirable hotel to stay at previously. I have to say without a shadow of a doubt, the front... More

I come to Tacoma once a week on business, so I've become somewhat of a regular. Here's my list of Pros & Cons. PRO: - FANTASTIC Staff. They are super friendly, helpful, and courteous. In fact, the staff is the reason I rated this hotel "very good" instead of just "Average". - Convenient location. Super easy freeway access gets you... More
