I expected to stay in a room that would allow a dog and mine is wonderfully behaved but the room I ended up in on the first floor had staining and smelled like cat urine - the room I was expecting for over 100 should have been clean and nice I didn't sleep well there. I hope in the future... More

The only thing it had going for it was they allow pets. It was late in the evening and the only room they had that was on the first floor. We were so tired from moving all day that we spent the night anyway. First thing in the morning we were out of there and went to the library and... More

First off I’d like to say the positive things about the hotel: 1. The staff is great. They are friendly and work very hard. 2. The housekeeping is immaculate. Our room was spotless. 3. The location is reasonably good. It’s across the street from the Tacoma Mall. If shopping on your agenda, you’ve come to the right place. 4. The... More

I travel a lot for work and typically spend 3 months a year (one month at a time) living in hotels. When I get to an extended stay hotel I expect certain things. It is interesting how those expectations influence the initial impression of a hotel. I was glad that I had a few days to look at this one... More

We stayed July 22- July 28 and we love the new look and friendly staff. We had only three very minor things pop up during our week stay. The front desk staff was great during the week , they helped with all our question during the week. We did have a minor issue with the bathroom sink stopper not in... More

We were house hunting for 10 days, so really wanted an extended stay place so that we didn't have to eat out for every meal. This hotel is centrally located and had all the amenities that we needed. I can't say enough kind things about the staff, they were so friendly!

We stayed here for a couple days while visiting family before a conference in Seattle. The first room we walked into had not been cleaned up from the prior guest but the manager rectified that by upgrading us to the King Suite which was incredibly spacious. If you have activities in the South Sound, this is a great base of... More

They messed up our reservations, we had 3 rooms on 2 floors. We had verified that we would all be together when we booked them. Other than that, the room was great, very spacious. Stayed cool with the a/c.
