Best Western Plus Tacoma Dome Hotel
Ranked #7 of 27 Hotels in Tacoma
Reviewed December 5, 2011

This is a very affordable hotel for the area. The rooms are clean and up to date. The hotel personnel and staff were all very nice and friendly. The bar was nice and quiet,the bartenders were fun people to be around. The food we had in the bar was not bad at all. Just don't ask for the soup. They never have any. All in all a nice place to stay.

Glad to hear your stay was pleasant. Our bar is one of our points of pride down in our restaurant area, it's good you found it so pleasant and relaxing. Our apologies about not having any soup. I'll let the kitchen know it's a desired item. We hope to see you again the next time you find yourself in Tacoma!

We stay here a lot and it is a very convenient location to see events at the dome and we like to scuba dive in the area.

Good points: Rooms are clean (the chamber maids at this hotel are the best), beds are just right (firm enough to be healthy but soft on top for comfort). The two elevators get you in and out fast when it is crowded at the dome. Security is good without making you feel corralled, Parking is reasonable with a big covered area to unload out of the rain.

The breakfast (while not gourmet of course) the the best "free" buffet breakfast around, lots of options for juice, breads etc and saves us lots of time and money going out. Scrambled eggs (some place near by only have HB eggs) and you can make your own HOT waffles with the hi tech waffle irons at at the buffet station. (Kids love this especially).

Bad points: the restaurant at dinner time needs help (literally), they are slow, the food is mediocre at best and pretty expensive and no one seems to know what is or isn't available that night etc.
Also the staff at the front desk can be a bit dim (depends on who you get).

Room Tip: Have a look at a couple first (I always do the first time)

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your room and our breakfast. They're points of pride with our hotel, so it's good to read that you enjoyed them so. Our apologies for what sounds like a less-than-positive experience with our restaurant in the evening. We are constantly striving to improve our hotel, and one of those areas is in our restaurant. We hope that you'll come back and visit us again, and that when you do our restaurant will be better to your liking. Thank you again for your words about the hotel, they are greatly appreciated.

I had to stay in Tacoma for work. The room was little, I did not sleep at all. The woman at the front desk was very helpful tho in giving directions because the streets are all torn up with construction and detours. Thank you front desk!
The free breakfast -- I did not have time to partake. Tried to grab a yogurt but they didn't have any.
There is nothing close to this hotel so I felt very isolated. I would not recommend it for a single traveler as there is nothing to do in the evening and the streets do not feel safe. I guess if there is something at the Dome, this would be an OK choice.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are probably pretty lame. Good luck.

This is a perfect place to stay if you're going to an event at the Tacoma Dome. We got a taxi to get us to the concert, then realized we could have walked there faster. It's about a 5-10 minute walk at the most.

I'm kind of a hotel snob, but really had no problems with this hotel other than there is nothing to eat within walking distance (except for a convenience store). There weren't any restaurants open in the hotel after the concert was over, so we ended up eating at the convenience store. Not quite what I had in mind!

The hotel itself is clean, was reasonably quiet, and the front desk help was fine. There was one waitress in particular that went out of her way the next morning to help out, as I wasn't feeling so great after a night out partying. Kudos to her - it was really appreciated after a few too many cocktails.

Overall, it was better than I anticipated and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to business travelers or concert goers.

We certainly are located close to the Tacoma Dome, we do take pride in that. For anybody else wondering, we are literally right next to the parking lot for the Dome itself. Apologies that nothing was open when you got back from your concert. We have a small shopping area just a couple blocks away called the "Freighthouse Square". It houses a large amount of different food vendors. If you're unsure the hours of the places there, or if you're looking for some place to eat, come down to our front desk, our employees will be more than happy to assist you in finding somewhere that is open and to your liking. Thank you for your compliments about our hotel and the breakfast. We hope to see you again the next time you come to an event at the Tacoma Dome.

The good things: It was pretty quiet and the room was fine. Clean, big enough, fine. And it was right near downtown although the area was a little sketchy. The front desk service, however, not fine. And actually, it was one specific guy, the front desk manager of all people. They'd had some problem with their key card system that apparently caused a whole block of rooms not to work. So, first, why put me in one of those rooms? Second, no apology for the key not working. The service guys apologized but not the front desk guy. I gave it a 3-blob rating only because the woman at the bar in the lounge gave me a free glass of wine (the good stuff even!) when I told her the whole story.

Arriving with no reservation, another (fully booked) property sent us here. Hotel was OK, not poor but nothing to gush over. Clean rooms, decent condition. Restaurant was mediocre and noise from lounge across hall was annoying. Good breakfast.
