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.

We stayed for 2 nights this past week. Great location as it was close to everything we needed. Breakfast was exactly what we needed each day. I wish room has a thermostat so that Heat would automatically shut off. And I wish they would have an area for smokers that isn't the front door. Gross walking to the truck with... More

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

We came in for a five-day stay and were warmly greated as by the front desk staff. As rewards members we were upgraded to a two queen bed suite & we were very pleased with the room. The breakfast was everything we expect from a Holiday Inn Express. There was plenty of choice between hot and cold breakfasts and drinks.... More

I chose to stay here again as the location is convenient and there is that 24 hour pool. I mentioned my noisy location last time near the car wash so they put me on the other side (room 416). I could have gotten a room on the back side but they are suites and cost $15 more/night. That wasn't a... More

Five of us (former college roommates) stayed in two adjoining rooms for PLU Homecoming weekend and had a wonderful stay. The rooms and baths were clean, beds comfortable, towels larger than most hotels, and staff very accommodating and helpful. The TV screen monitor in the room was huge! The 'free breakfast' was wonderful -- eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, yogurt, juices,... More

Same standards as most Holiday Inn Express Hotels, however, in a low end neighborhood. Hotel was well run and even had a novel pancake machine for breakfast. We suggest you try another hotel closer to downtown Tacoma.
