The neighborhood was very run down and did not feel safe. The rude front desk didn't help either. Room was OK, pillows were bad,no breakfast. Worth spending a little more money and being comfortable. Glad it was only for one night.

I stay in hotels a lot, and thought I had seen the worst, but this hotel was the most disgusting I've ever walked in to! The first room they sent me to, the lights wouldn't come on and neither would the heat, and the room had a terrible odor. I asked for another room and they obliged, but the second... More

My daughter and i rented this room because of location and on the web it looked nice, but once we were there, the outdoor pool was drained, which i guess is understandable in the winter, and the room was horrible, it was dirty, the bathroom was so small you had to be almost in the tub to shut the door...

While it is a 1-star (Priceline), the Rodeway Inn on Hosmer in Tacoma, WA ought to have zero stars. The room was dirty and shabby and the clientele I saw would fit in well with drug dealers and prostitutes. I left after 10 minutes. Another room wouldn't have made me feel more comfortable at that point. The ~$50 I paid... More

This place is dirty, smells bad and has bugs! Sitting on the bed, and a spider dropped from the ceiling and onto my leg. Sat on the bed for a few minutes and started itching. We left. We were promised a refund. If it doesn't go through, you can be sure we'll be calling the credit card company to fight... More

I didn't actually expect much from this low budget hotel but it was pretty bad. We chose it for the location near the highway and knew it wouldn't be anything special. Poorly maintained room, damaged bedding, empty nasty pool and general decline are all this place has to offer.

I was concerned when I found the window open and unsecured. Dim lite made it hard to see what I was getting into. When all the lites were on, there were bugs and debris behind the door, on the floor (which was sticky), hair in the sink, urine on the floor and around the toilet. Bathtub backed up and the...

At first I thought the hotel might have changed since these reviews were written, but I was wrong. The hotel attempts to cover up their problems by painting the walls blue and redoing their sign, but nothing changes. I keep discovering bugs in my room and the blankets have holes in them. The room is very stuffy and has a... More
