Best Western Plus Tacoma Dome Hotel
Ranked #7 of 27 Hotels in Tacoma
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We had an OK experience here but there were a few frustrations. The water was strange in that it was never hot to shower in and never cold to brush your teeth in! There was a pizza box left in our room - an over sight for sure - but a bad one. It took 2 days to finally get a tv remote that worked. But the worst part was the elevators. Only one worked and the other one was so slow that it took forever to get to your room. When I asked about the bus shuttle the one front desk staff said there wasn't one. Luckily the other person working told us there was. Being a motel owner myself I know the importance of making guests comfortable and happy. Our stay was OK but a bit frustrating at times. I would probably try another motel in the area if I were coming again - just because. The bed was good and that is important.

Stayed here 3 nights while taking the Washington Bar Exam at the Tacoma Dome. There are only two elevators in the hotel and one was out of service the entire time we were there. Since there is no service elevator that meant one elevator for the entire hotel. Since we stayed on the 5th floor this meant waiting a long time for the elevator or taking the stairs.

Room was very basic and had low water pressure. But the rest of the hotel is nice and conveniently located next to the Tacoma Dome.

We stayed at the hotel last Saturday night for the Air Supply concert and the Emerald Queen Showroom. The hotel has a design flaw with only 2 elevators for a 6 floor hotel. There is no service elevator so the housekeeping staff has to use the same elevators as the guests. For our visit, one of the two elevators was not working. This caused delays whenever we left our room. However, the hotel was clean, everything seemed to work fine, the staff was friendly and the price was good. Morning breakfast was okay. Seems like they could have opened the bar space for seating as it was very crowded.

stayed 1 night for concert 2/16. Mr ball took control of a cold rainy night with 100s of young teens and early 20 somethings inside and outside the hotel after the concert ended. Th lobby looked like the scenes of people trying to board the last lifeboat on the Titanic.The lobby was dangerous with over capacity. Mr ball was more than helpful to my wife and myself. he got us a shuttle to a restaurant he thought would enjoy and did. He is one of the best managers of a hotel I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I have traveled all over the world and I thought you might like to know your Mr ball should move to a place like the NY Plaza hotel where is abilities would be an asset. A couple from lake oswego and 2 daughters who wanted to say how Mr ball a big difference in our stay at your hotel.

The staff working 2/16 in the evening were unbelievably rude to our friends who we went to the concert next door. They wanted to stand in the lobby (with us!) and the staff rudely forced everyone out! It was pouring rain and it wouldn't have been any problem for them to simply stand in the lobby waiting for a bit. It was hard to watch our friends and a whole bunch of young people kicked out into the bad weather! Really? We will never recommend this place or stay here again despite the convenience to the Tacoma Dome.

WE loved staying at this hotel, as it was close to quite a few places of interest. We were in Tacoma to visit my husband's sister, and the hotel was close to the freeway. We were also very happy to discover the ALmond Roca factory outlet about two blocks away. A very dangerous stop for those who love Almond Roca.
