Our group of 2 adults and 3 children booked a suite and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room! The service from check in on, was outstanding. Breakfast had a wide variety of choices; kids loved the pancake machine and we really enjoyed the healthier options. The kids loved the cookies at night and had a great... More

We had a King Bed Suite and were impressed for the very affordable cost. THE CHECK IN - The front desk staff beamed with smiles as I entered the front doors. They were cheerful and more welcoming than I have seen at many hotels costing twice as much. They informed us that not only was breakfast included but also cookies... More

As long as you are expecting a budget hotel experience you will be very satisfied with this property. Reception is bright and airy with friendly and helpful staff, and stocked with coffee and fresh cookies! The rooms are spotlessly clean, but are a bit dull and dark due to the colours of the décor and smallish windows. The room is... More

The Holiday Inn Express Tacoma is a well-run establishment located close to I-5. It's strengths are the friendly staff, convenient location and large, open rooms. The outside parking spaces occasionally seemed almost full, but is manageable. The helpful front staff made check-in a pleasant and fast experience. The room was a very good size and seemed clean. The bed was... More

The room itself was spacious and beautiful. King bed, micro-fridge. Handicap room, adjacent to the breakfast room which in the mornings could be a bit noisy. The worst part of our stay was the transits who frequented this hotel property. On Saturday night we came out to go to dinner and there was a transit in the parking lot with... More
