“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

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 Oscar Motel without any expectations or preconceived notions. We were impressed from the very first. The front desk clerk was very friendly and the room was HUGE (which is a nice perc when you have three people crammed into a room for four days)

One night we had the family back to the motel to use the hot tub in the indoor pool area (important, since it was winter and snowing) and we ordered food in. We didn't want to eat in the room, so i asked if we could use the breakfast area The night clerk not only said yes, but she lit candles, brought out plates and utensils and arranged a selection of cookies for after It was unexpected and appreciated We didn't just feel permitted to use the room, we were made to feel welcomed. Thats and impressive feat when you consider we made our selection based solely on the motel's proximity to I-5

My wife and I chose to treat this trip as a small vacation, so we slept in until 8:30 each morning. The nephew, however, was up and at'em each day at 7. He took the run of the motel grounds, exploring each nook and cranny, getting into snowball fights with other guest's kids and making his own breakfast. He got to know the staff and by the end of our stay they knew him by name. Rather than getting annoyed, the morning clerk showed him how to make waffles!

Sweet kid that he is, our nephew wanted to bring us coffee in the room. The clerk was worried he'd scald himself and called us to make sure we were expecting him and on the lookout Our stay was so full of personal, kind moments like these that I could write several more paragraphs.

The King Oscar Motel is inexpensive, clean, convenient and serves a free waffle and carbs breakfast, but the reason we are recommending it is that it has soul. Thats hard to find these days.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We found this to be a ""Great older economey priced place to stay" while in the area. Its an older building. It was clean, quiet, fine bathrooms, vanity separate area from shower. Bed was older and not the best, but for the price and one nite met our needs. It has a very nice indoor heated pool, see photos. The hot tub was a good temp for me, but not hot enough for the wife who likes 104 plus. It was about 100 degrees F while we were there. Did not use the Sauna. The free breakfast is in a small area that could use more tables and chairs. Waffles, cold cereal, English muffins, bread, apples are the basic things included along with juices and coffee. Have stayed before and will probably stay again when in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in a basic room. No fridge or microwave. Some units have these, just ask.

Lots of friendly staff, and good rates, nice indoor all year round pool and hot tub, continental breakfast with waffles and eggs, cereal and fruit. This place went out of their way for us, we have a companion pet, but instead of like all the other Motels they only take dogs, this one is pet friendly to cats w/o discrimination and a small fee. There are convenience stores and or places to eat close by and in walking distance, on off freeway ramps for directions to 167 north to Renton, WA. or south to Puyallup.
We really appreciated the hospitality these people went out of their way to give to us being how we were traveling from Reno NV. to this particular area, for visiting family and friends.

Friendly staff, large clean rooms, and good price. It would be nice if they had WIFI but the wired internet works well.
