Located in a decent part of town, this hotel is relatively nice for its age. Beds are comfortable, room had a small odor to it, but nothing a spray of Febreeze didn't fix. Quiet, restful nights sleep. Nice laundry facilities, nice pool and front desk staff are amazingly polite. Landscaping is nice, well kept on outside as well as in...... More

We booked this hotel for our road trip - conveniently located near the main highway, late check-in, great value for the money! Room was large, clean, fresh. Plenty of towels and toilettries. The hotel had lots of parking space - perfect for all - small cars, RVs and Trucks. Breakfast was very nice - lots of hot and cold variety... More

First of, yes it's not a hotel where you should go for your honeymoon eheh. There is one part of the hotel that has been remodeled and has flat screen TV, mini frige, microwave, new AC, hair dryer etc. The mattress in those rooms is new too and pretty comfortable but most important it's pretty quiet. Price for one week... More

We went to a ball game at Cheney Stadium and this hotel was a good deal. It was fine but the carpets could be replaced. It is an older building and it looks like it is popular with truckers. The breakfast was good.....not a lot of selection and could have used some more fruit and yoghurt. There is no view... More

The rooms at both locations were large and clean with very comfortable beds. The rooms had refrigerators and microwave ovens as well as WIFI, all at a lower price then most hotels in the Tacoma, WA area. It is not a new hotel by any means but well cared for. We stayed in the building that housed #650. I did... More

Ratings for this hotel seemed positive so we gave it a try. We only need a room for one night as we were passing through WA. Bed was practically on the floor it was so low, and the pillows were terrible. Very old furnishings, no blow dryer in the room, breakfast was very light in the morning as well. We... More

What do you want from a motel? clean rooms, convenient location, friendly staff? Check, check, check. Throw in free breakfast and a low room rate and you have a customer for life, at least if you're talking about me My wife and I and our 9 year old nephew traveled to Tacoma to visit family and stayed at the King...

I have stayed at this "off the grid" hotel chain on three occasions during late Dec 2011 and early Jan 2012. I stayed at the Tacoma, WA as well as the Pacific, WA locations.
