“Waste of money.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The room was dirty, especially around the edges and corners. Like they did a quick vacuum in the center to make it look like it had been cleaned. The toilet leaked. The bathroom floor was coming apart. The room smelled bad.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

It's been 40 years since I've stayed at one of these, so time to give them another try! (I think they were only 6 bucks back then) I am pleased to report that they have moved up from the coin-op B&W tv to an 18" CRT. This motel (chain) certainly defines budget motels, with absolutely no frills, but you go in knowing you're going to get what you pay for so you're not disappointed. If you're traveling by yourself, as I am this trip, and just need a clean, quiet place to crash for the night, this fills the bill nicely.

Just off I5, pleasant service. Clean and comfortable. Typical for Motel 6. Great for overnight stop. I would stay here again.

Employees are very nice and courteous, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the prices are right, and there are several good places to eat near by. Would recommend it to anyone who just needs a warm shower and a good nights sleep.
We stay there 1 - 2 times a week.
No, it's not the Taj Mahal. It's a very nice comfortable, affordable motel.

This is your basic motel 6, bed, bathroom, etc.
The bed was obviously quite new - still firm and not sagging from people sitting on it. Pillows were better than what I've typically found in Motel 6, so their "recently upgraded" statement is obviously true. It was right next to the freeway, but pretty quiet in my room. All in all a good stay.

Room Tip: The north side would be within yards of the freeway, so better to be elsewhere on the property.

My Wife I recently stayed here overnight for a Nickleback concert at the Tacoma Dome and were pleasantly suprised with our room after reading TA we were not expecting much. The room was clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful.The restaurant next door served a decent breakfast as well. Cab fare to the Tacoma Dome will run you 30.00 return, event parking is 25.00 and up so a room around a 100.00 within walking distance might be a better bet if your attending a concert.We would not hesitate staying here again if a hotel close to the venue was not available.

Room Tip: Bring Shampoo

You can't stay at a more horrible place. Is it just me or did other people find cigarette burns and buds in the sheets. Blahhh it is like the motel from the horror movies
