I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for work. I'm not from the area and I'm not the one that makes our reservations. It close to shopping and restaurants. But when you drive up, you can tell it's not in the best of neighborhoods. At work the next day, local coworkers expressed concern that I should not venture out... More

We stayed here after a night at Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound on our way back to Canada. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the rooms clean, cool and quiet. My sons asked if we were the only ones staying there! In the morning, we were very happy with the breakfast offerings. We have nut allergies which... More

I happened to stay at this hotel during the USA PGA Opening and I just couldn't get an hotel close enough to my intended destination. Although my daily commute was over an hour and a half each way in traffic, my stay at the hotel was a rewarding one. The pros: The staff was polite and friendly and this certainly... More

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express three miles South on my way to Portland but for this trip, I had business in Tacoma and switched for both convenience (it was closer) and just to try a new property. Although it is located close to I5, the highway noise level was significantly less. The included breakfast is the standard... More

We stayed in the holiday in express Tacoma hotel for one night, before a geography competition. We really wanted to have a good night sleep, but the walls are very thin and other guests noises were keeping us awake. It is also in an unfortunate location near a fire department, so that also added to the interfering noise. The staff... More

The staff at this hotel is very helpful, especially Priscilla at the front desk. The room was large and comfortable. It was extremely clean. The wi-fi was excellent. The hotel was very quiet. The morning breakfast was very good. I had a corner suite on the second floor that overlooked a small lake. I highly recommend this hotel.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in the room was the funny smell, a lingering damp smell. It's cold in tacoma so the first thing I needed is a hot shower. But there is no hot water, just barely warm! Big disappointment. Then I noticed that the shower curtain is dirty and broken and the faucet is consistently... More
