This is a run down lodge, dirty stairs, cigarettes butts all over the place, rooms too heavy to air freshener to cover the pungent or smoke cigarette smell. Breakfast not exactly shown on the photos. Coffee and juice, cereal and milk, toast , butter, jam and cream cheese. That's it, no cold water nor hot water for tea. Rooms are...

I booked this hotel now over two weekends ago, so that I would not have to drive home late at night, and though I was expecting it to be bad, it wasn't. There was a king sized bed and it had a fridge in there as well. It was really clean and I slept peacefully. I did not have a...

Took family to swim and pool was closed. Think they could have told me this before I booked two nights. Staff was rude. Rooms were raunchy. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Lots of other cheap places in area. Stay away.

I checked in around 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday and my friends and I dropped our bags in the room as we were planning on leaving for the show at the Tacoma Dome right away. I first noticed something was wrong with the room when we each went to use the bathroom and the lock on the bathroom door was...

Had we not been so exhausted, we would have checked out immediately: upon check in we found the bathroom we still dirty from the previous guest, the sheets on the bed were still dirty, as was the rest of the room. There was still food in the fridge. Maid service was called in (about 8 pm) & we were given...

The hotel was fine for as cheap as it was. Location is good for eating and shopping but looks and seems a little shady in the area. Lots of hotels around it so might just be the area. I would recommend for a quick sleep on your way through it you need a place to stay.

My mistake to pull up to the first hotel sign, after a long ride in the rain. First hint of a trouble was to pay a $100 deposit in case of a damaging the room. Room itself with missing cabinet doors under the TV, head board from the bed detached with nails sticking out above. Security guard banging at my...

The staff was alright but other than that the entire experience was awful from the minute we got our room key. The room incredibly dirty (stains on the carpet & bed cover to cigarette butts on the floor in a non-smoking room to the latch being broken on the door). We also saw what appeared as a prostitute and her...

When a customer walks in the door they want to be greeted and acknowledged. When it is 102 degrees out and we are expecting a pool, the handwritten sign on the desk saying it's broken is disappointing. When we lock our door at night we want the security lock to work. Mattress pads would be nice. Pay and appreciate your...
