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.

My wife was having an overnight girls night so I decided to have a father and son night with my 2 and a half year old son. As soon as we parked my son got a kick out of the lake right by the hotel. When we entered he again got excited by the two fountains that greet you. When... More

We've now stayed at this hotel 3 times in the last 2 months and I have to say its a great place. Its always clean. The staff is always very friendly.

I found everything at this hotel to be very good and staff was nice. The bed was very comfortable. Much more comfortable than the Courtyard and Hotel Murano in Tacoma. What is unfortunate is the neighborhood in which it is located. There are a lot of lower end motels and run down strip malls. It is unfortunate that those who... More

The hotel was great - location, room, food, etc. Oh, but we had to kill a small spider and some giant looking mosquito in our room (on the ceiling and in the window sill). My major turn off was that there is only one elevator servicing the 4 floors and that one morning after breakfast there were 5 people waiting... More

My destination was Madigan. This hotel is convenient to and from I-5 and is a great value with excellent service. The breakfast was sufficient and the staff were helpful when I left an item in the room.

To be fair, I didn't stay at this hotel. I stayed at the Downtown location which was much better, but that was the issue. I accidentally booked this hotel as opposed to the Downtown location and called the morning of the reservation explaining the situation. Even though the nice lady at the Downtown location said they would cancel if they... More

We had lodged at an extended stay place the month before and weren't happy. So we tried this HI express for only about $8 more, even though it was farther from where we were visiting.

To be fair, this is located on hotel row and it is Tacoma. I don't think that any other hotel is going to be much better. As far as the facility itself, we were very pleased.
