Extended stay hotel in fife - ok place to stay?

I'll be at a 4 day conference in Tacoma in February and am looking for a budget but pleasant accommodation nearby. Is this area okay for that? I'll be driving back and forth from the city, so won't be spending much time actually in Fife.

We stayed at a motel in Fife for a week many years ago when attending the US Figure Skating Championships in Tacoma. Fife is just 2 or 3 exits from the main downtown exit on I-5, so it's very convenient. It may be closer timewise to your convention venue than a lot of hotels in Tacoma proper.

I personally would not stay in Fife. It is ugly, has lots of seedy characters roaming the streets, no decent restaurants, and tons of semi trucks crowding the roads. Try to stay in downtown Tacoma or along Ruston Way.

I agree with foxisle. We bought our first sailboat in Fife and lived aboard for a few months. It's not my first choice for accommodations, no matter how affordable. "Pleasant" is not how I would describe it.

It's a drive thru town, lots of fast food. It has grown up a bit. Has a casino now. But like stated its ugly. However extended stay is a great place. I've stayed in the one on hosmer, it's the other end of tacoma however. It's not the best but if you want a place to pick up some fast dinner and rest your head, it's a great place.
