It was reasonably close to the highway to get on. The room looked good. I noticed that they let the homeless stay here, or so it looked that way. A lot of doors opening and closing and vehicles coming and going thru out the night. Didn't feel too comfortable about this.

The motel was pretty crappy. You could tell people were dealing drugs; for the most part not a good part of town. The room I stayed in was not cleaned; urine stains on the bottom part of the toilet, I had to buy some cleaning wipes to clean it up. I stayed for over a week, and the first day...

I can't speak for any of the others, but first be advised that this area of Tacoma is not exactly high end. So given that the traffic in and around the Motel can be "shady", the Staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and we had no issues with noise at night. It was a good stay...

For me, the most important aspect of a business is nice employees. Because employees' behavior is a reflection of their management. So I don't want to give my money to organizations that have grumpy employees because that usually means they are not being treated nicely by their employers. The Motel 6 in Tacoma I stayed at for a few nights...

It is very difficult to find a hotel in the Puyallup-Tacoma area, that is non-smoking, accepts cats, and is less than $100. If those are your criteria, you will not get continental breakfast with it. I was going to rate this a 2-star, because it reeked of stale cigarette smoke, was a handicapped room which I did not request, and...

The room is very basic but what do you expect from a Motel 6? It is very convenient to the freeway with a ton of food options right around you. The beds were extremely comfy and I had one of the best night's sleep in a long time. Negatives: very rude people upstairs from us who stood out on the...

After a less than warm welcome, we checked into our room. Wi-fi, microwave, refrigerator, and yes even the darn hair dryer are added expenses. The room was run down with a sagging mattress but worse than these was the overwhelming smell of cat urine. We marched back to the front desk and we rudely given a refund. We found much...
