3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was given a Jacuzzi suite on a late night arrival. The front desk was quite efficient and within minutes I was at the corner room of very good size. The color of the curtain is somehow strange but it does the job well of darkening the room. It could also be the texture and the material of the carpet,... More

Room was clean, had refrigerator and a keurig coffee maker. Breakfast was normal hotel buffet style, but they kept it full and fresh. Walking distance to a few good places to eat. Hostess was very friendly and helpful.

This place has very comfortable rooms and really spacious. They serve warm fresh baked cookies in the evening and they have friendly staff. Best of all is the breakfast. It was a large spread and they had a very sizable variety. Plus they had this instant pancake maker that was totally fun, flavorful, and just plain cool! Hit the button... More

So many hotels include a "breakfast", which us often nothing more than stale donuts, juice, and coffee. This hotel offers the usual, but reals eggs, sausage, made to order pancakes, etc. It is conveniently located of I-5, and just down the road from the Tacoma Mall for great dining and shopping options.

Spent 3 nights here before checking daughter into college. Never stayed w this brand, but the rooms were sizable, beds were comfy and clean; soap and shampoo were adequate, towels were fine, and they put new bottles of water in the fridge nightly. Breakfast was fine for the price; frozen omelets, a hokey-make-your-own-pancakes machine, instant oatmeal, several breakfast meats, and... More

Manager Alexis is awesome! My party desperately needed a place to stay late at night. We were weary road travelers and couldn't be more in need (slight exaggeration) of lodging. Alexis was cheerful, helpful, and refreshingly accommodating. Secondly, Daniel helped us as Alexis needed to leave. Daniel was helpful and friendly as well.

Location is poor. Parking area is small and somewhat iffy. Friendly check-in. Room was ok. It is a very old property. I would recommend a complete makeover, to make it maintain the brand name. By the way, breakfast was good. Bedsheets and pillows were satisfactory. The towels(which are white), all had dark stains on them. In summation, I would call... More
