We stayed here and got what we expected from a holiday inn. It was not bad but our room did not get serviced and had to request it from the front desk. This is the last thing i wanted to do when getting back at 9 and having to put my young ones to bed. The breakfast was really nice....

We checked in at the last minute and we were very pleased with our choice. Room was immaculate, spacious and modern with granite counter tops and tiled bathroom. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was fairly decent. We only spent one night but it was worth the money compared to other hotels nearby.

This is nice hotel with good amenities and good staff, but the location is not that great. The local area is a little sketchy at best. The worst part is that the hotel is right near the interstate and the road/traffic noise in my room was always evident. At night I turned the fan on the AC unit to always...

We enjoyed our 2 days stay with my family. The hotel is clean and the service is good. Staff are nice and helpful. I will stay there again if we happen to visit the area. The area is very close to public transportation and to the freeway.

My friend and I wanted a Holiday Inn Express near JBLM, where my son is stationed, to lay our heads at night after our day trips to Mt Ranier, Olympic Pennisula, Olympia and the Museum District in Tacoma. It is one exit down from the main Base entrance and right off of the 5. The hotel is very clean although,...
