This is a Holiday Inn - but I've been staying at Hampton Inns. The Hampton Inns are much nicer, newer, and cleaner. My view is a gas station- with the noises that go with it. See pic. Dirt on the walls. I don't travel to Tacoma often, so that is a good thing.

What a nice little oasis. We were in town visiting family and attending graduations, so we needed a place central enough to all the areas we were going but accessible to the freeway. This hotel fit the bill and then some. First the front desk staff were professional yet welcoming. They were easy to engage and willing to accommodate any...

Nice clean hotel. I have stayed there a lot. One complaint. I am a IHG Platinum member, and I have to contact this hotel quite often to get my welcome points. Three times this year already. Still have not received points from January, and now missing points from last week. I stay up and down the I5, 30 nights already...

We stayed here a couple days. I was kind of wondering about the area. The hotel staff is awesome and have awesome customer service. The hotel seem pretty clean. The pool and hot tub can use some cleaning. The beds were nice and comfy. Our hotel room was all the way at one end of the hotel towards the pond...

This hotel was super clean and the staff was very accommodating. The pool and jacuzzi were open 24 hours, which was fantastic. The front desk staff was so helpful! This was a good value for the money. Will stay here again!

The entrance is tight, if not in turn lane immediately after the light then you miss it. The lobby, breakfast area is bright, clean. The room was clean, dated. The surrounding area is loud, dirty and a tad scary. Stayed in many Holiday Inns, this one is pretty typical but could use some up dating.

Super nice location with friendly staff. This facility has a 24/7 pool/hut tub/work out area. Near JBLM and is great for a weekend getaway or a TDY location. Plenty of good restaurants near by whether you want to get it to go or sit down for a meal. But don't go out for breakfast, they do a great spread.

The hotel was very very clean. The house keeping staff was excellent. Breakfast was well stocked with plenty of options. Our air was either running or it was too hot in the room. It would have been more comfortable if there was a happy medium. Parking was limited and tight! Neighborhood was a little sketchy looking but we didn't have...

Stayed here with family for a function 1 block away. The area isn't too flashy but the hotel was great for an Express one. Parking is free outside on their small lot. The rooms were spacious & had comfy beds, liked having free coffee in the room but also all day coffee & cookies in the lobby! The continental breakfast...

I was given a Jacuzzi suite on a late night arrival. The front desk was quite efficient and within minutes I was at the corner room of very good size. The color of the curtain is somehow strange but it does the job well of darkening the room. It could also be the texture and the material of the carpet,...
