My only problem during this stay was the person next door that was coming and going at all hours with no regard for others. Dogs barking when a person came to the door. The breakfast was presented well and kept clean each day. The staff here takes great care of the guests and ensures you have what you need. I... More

A happy surprise. This hotel is surprisingly great. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, continental breakfast is better than most. Lobby has coffee and cookies all day long. Staff is pleasant. Great location within walking distance to gas stations, restaurants, and shopping. Would stay here again.

Used this hotel for quick overnight, so arrived very late and left early. Room was clean, and breakfast usual HIE breakfast, but bed quality was very bad, as mattress was old and tired, and above all, extremely soft. Wi-Fi fast and reliable, parking free. Just next to highway. Room had microwave and fridge, which is a plus.

We arrived in late at night to a very welcoming host and we went into our huge room which was oddly shaped- it was narrow, but long. We had two massive beds and also a separate living space, which appeared to have a kitchen too- coffee maker and microwave and fridge and sink. It also had a desk for work.... More

This hotel was very clean and friendly. A very nice Holiday Inn Express. The only downside is that if you have a freeway-facing room you will have constant noise. So be aware of that. Breakfast was what you would expect - a nice selection of hot and cold options.

This hotel has friendly staff, clean rooms, ample parking, and a very nice breakfast, all at a cheap price. The free Wi-Fi is a plus for me too. You cant go wrong. The only drawback, which is also a plus, is the close proximity to the free - lots of traffic noise. Overall a good choice.

The staff here were very nice and friendly. Our room was situated on the freeway side of the hotel and it was very noisy. Breakfast was standard fare but quickly replenished. The room was in need of redecorating and updating ...the bathroom fan if it worked was inadequate and the bottom of the door was a mess. Somewhat drab but... More

It was better than you expect for budget hotels. I had a large suite for a cheap price and the breakfast was up to par. The drive downtown took a bit but you're only about 45 minutes from the airport and downtown Tacoma.
