Western Inn Lakewood/Tacoma
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Lakewood
Reviewed January 30, 2013

it was raining and we were tired of driving. we pulled off I-5 and found the western inn, on south tacoma way.

pretty impressive/fancy lobby with two recetionists, couch, world clocks.. well if the rooms are as good as this, even the $60 + tax would be a steal!! plus a hot breakfast..bonus!

up to the room, large, with a couch, and a 1980 tv set...even the programming didn't fit the screen. no coffee in the room. okay, we can live with that, wait till breakfast. bed was okay. place was quiet except if someone came up the stairs the room shook, or if a plane took off from sea-tac..you thought the roof was about to come off!

morning...into the shower, good if you are 5' 3", oh and the water pressure ..zero..worst i have ever had of all the motels or hostels i have ever stayed in.

breakfast...great if you like waffles that come off the grill like paste..how did the western inn create those anyway? and then supply the cheapest of plastic cutlery that won't even cut the waffle, oh but that is why we have fingers...to eat the waffles!! the only other thing to have for breakfast...packaged muffins...no fruit, no toast, no bagels, no cereal.

in the end, when i spoke to the manager/owner she couldn't care less!

a definite no go.

Room Tip: stay at the front, i believe the back is used for 'longer' term 'guests'.

Inexpensive Hotel near Fort Lewis in heart of International District with great access to asian restaurants! If you want a inexpensive Hotel with good access to I5 and Fort Lewis/Tacoma with good size rooms then this is it. Have stayed here four times and have enjoyed the location and access to Fort Lewis. Rooms are decent, but if you want luxury better go someplace else.
