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.

Stayed at the HIE Tacoma for a business trip. Parking is on the small side and quickly fills up. Close to north- and south-bound on- & off-ramps. Breakfast is standard HIE, hot and filling. Fitness center is on the small side, but I just needed to get some time on the treadmill. Rooms are decent sized, with a kitchenette &... More

Coming north on I-5 getting off the freeway at night I missed the driveway on left due to visibility--not enough light. Had to make a u-turn. Parking was minimal at night. Area seemed run down appeared not safe to walk outside. Inside the hotel was warm and inviting with friendly employees. Workout room was small with equipment practically on top... More

If you are planning to stay in Tacoma choose another area then where this Holiday Inn Express is located. The hotel was pretty much what all Holiday Inn Express Hotels are. The staff were very nice and the complimentary breakfast adequate. The room was large but showing it's age. The hotel was just off I5 but wasn't noisy. My only... More

This hotel had everything you hope for. Very quiet even next to the elevator. The breakfast was not just rolls. There was an egg dish and a pancake maker available every day along with yogurt, cinnabon like rolls, bacon, sausage, cereal etc.. The staff was very nice and all smiles. I would definitely stay here again. Great location too.
