We stayed the weekend for a University of Puget Sound football reunion. The Silver cloud was perfect for the event. The rooms were nice and clean and we were all conveniently close the entire weekend. We had a beautiful view of Commencement Bay from our room, enjoyed the great walking path along water front, loved being close to two nice restaurants, which is where the banquet and brunch were held. We enjoyed our visit immensely and we will be back in the future. Perfect for a reunion

Staff was wonderful and welcoming. Views wonderful and rooms very well kept. Breakfast was well presented and offered a variety of choices. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Front desk personnel, Kim, worked hard to accommodate an early arrival and a place for us to relax and visit.

Room Tip: West side of building has wonderful view.

We stay here frequently and have never been disappointed in the quality or the care. The hotel is located next to the Sound with a view and restaurants nearby that are exceptional. The hotel is also close the the University of Puget Sound.

We have stayed at other Silver Cloud Inns but this one right on Commencement Bay due to the view has them beat. Using a special offer from Obitiz we were able to book a mini suite for less than the cost of a regular room on the hotel's website. Our stay was for 3 nights. The first night we were assigned a room on the first floor, when I inquired about a room on the top floor I was told none were available. As we were just down the hall from elevator we could here the comings and goings of guests using it.. Down the hall the other way was the lobby where they served breakfast, so we had dish and other assorted noises from there starting at 6am. So in the morning I again requested a different room and with in an hour we were in a room on the top floor. Thanks to the desk clerk who made that happen. What a difference, it was like we were the only ones in the hotel it was so quiet compared to the room on the first floor. They serve a decent breakfast but nothing out of the ordinary. The hotel is very clean and quite comfortable plus they offer free WiFi. Plenty of parking some of which is under cover which is especially nice when it's raining as it did during our stay. Offers easy access to I-5 and there are plenty of great restaurants close by. Would stay here again but only if we could get a room on the top floor. I marked sleep quality down to the noises we heard our first night.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the top floor facing the bay.

Spent 3 nights here while visiting my daughter who attends the U. Of Puget Sound. Third or fourth time that I have stayed here. Love the place. Beautiful setting on the shores of Commencement Bay, with a spectacular view of the Olympics. Wifi and a solid, if unimaginative, breakfast included. Not the least-expensive option in Tacoma, but still a good value, considering what you are getting. Have to climb 30th St. to get to UPS, but it's only about 20 min. walk. Note: The hotel is across the street from train tracks, and Amtrak and freight trains pass through regularly, including at night. I like train sounds, so don't mind, and they are not too loud. Sorry that my daughter is graduating, as I probably won't be back for awhile.

Silver Cloud is located on the outskirts of Tacoma, right on the water. There is a nice walking path that leads to a couple of pocket parks with well placed benches. There are train tracks about 50 yards from the hotel entrance, and the passing trains made for some good entertainement for the kids. I never heard the trains at night, but I was on the opposite side of the building.

There is no restaurant at the hotel, and it is a drive to nearly anywhere to eat. The Ram restaurant does deliver to the room though. Note that Tacoma has a few things going for it, but eating out is not one of them - it's just not that kind of town.

This is the place for you if you want to be in a quiet, uncrowded location with a great view (but no pool). The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there is a shuttle into town. I would return.
