Santa visited Tacoma for months of Nov & Dec, he stayed at hotel with excellent staff, clean rooms, and a wonderful manager named Kelly Smith. Kelly managed to greet almost every customer by name and had a bubbly personality that made everyone including Santa happy to see her there, which seemed like 24 hours a day. I plan on telling...

My family lives in Gig Harbor, but I come across the bridge to stay at ESA Tacoma South when I visit because I like this hotel better than the two options in Gig Harbor. This hotel is clean, quiet, with a full kitchen and very comfortable! This last visit I wasn't able to check in until 11:30 PM, but the... More

We had to book a last-minute trip to Tacoma due to a family funeral, and most of the hotels were already booked. The ones that weren't were way overpriced, so we decided to stay at the ESA based on the price and the favorable reviews. Still, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, having never stayed at one before, but... More

First off, the room was clean and comfy. Staff is certainly friendly and it is reasonable priced. The wifi is probably the best I have ever used in a hotel. My concerns are as follows: 1) This one really makes me really mad. I came back home with a horrible case of athlete's foot. Your hotel is the only place... More

A very clean and fast check in. I was worried on a bad review but have never been let down by extended. This was no different. Clean and well appointed room far enough off I5 that noise was not an issue No issues and recommend to all MP Portland

The traffic between Seattle and Tacoma was horrendous so we anticipated having difficulty locating this place. I booked it through a third party sight. Much to my surprise this sits right off the freeway next to the Tacoma Mall. Our room was beautiful and very comfy. If you are looking for a place in South Tacoma this place is for... More

Have stayed here several times for long term. The staff are friendly and always helpful. If you do not drive the location is ideal as it is across from the mall with lots of inexpensive places to eat like the food court. The bus is right there so it is easy to get around especially for academics. The hotel is... More
