Check in was fast and easy, very friendly service. Elevator was tiny (again,...

We visited this location for a weekend for our child's competition nearby. Unfortunately, the first room we were booked into smelled like mold and was swampy and clearly unserviced. Half the rooms carpet squish under our feet with water intrusion. We were moved to a different floor where the room was cleaner, but very worn down. The room smelled cleaner,...

We are a part of the hoard of wrestlers that descend upon Tacoma in February every year. This hotel is older, not as "sterile" feeling as normal hotels are, but the staff is GENUINE! They are friendly, personal, and accommodating! So thankful for Tonya's service at breakfast this morning!

Tonya made our stay! Some people take pride in what they do. Tonya is one of them. So kind and helpful. Gave us a great dinner recommendation too. We needed a room last minute and they delivered. The room, gym, and pool were clean. Thanks!

Beautiful all around, super friendly, clean, I hear the breakfast is to die for but we slept in, so next time, maybe. Beautiful pool, take your suits. For the most part quiet, kids ran the halls but at quiet time they stopped. Wonderful stay! Thanks so much!

Overall, Tacoma Red Lion is a decent place to stay, whether alone or with others. It's close to restaurants and to most of what travelers need. Also, its a nice place to escape to with a significant other for a weekendwithout spending a small fortune. .
