I can usually count on Holiday Inn express to come through for me and this one certainly did. The staff is very helpful and friendly. My room was large, clean and comfortable. The TV is huge with great channel lineup.

Stayed here on business for 2 nights. Staff at the front desk were great with recommendations for nearby restaurants and even a local dry cleaner. Room was great, breakfast did the job and hotel was immaculate. Would definitely stay here again, very satisfied.

Great location. Breakfast is superb. Fitness center nice. Décor is nice. Staff was really helpful, not on edge, not defensive. Cookies and coffee all evening, nice. Keurig in room. Free water bottles in fridge.

We stayed here for 2 nights (Wednesday and Thursday nights) and were charged $174 for one night (we were told by front desk staff because they were almost full) and $144 for the second night. We were not aware that this was a standard practice. We decided to stay anyway because we had been on road for a very long...

Another great Holiday Inn Express stay in the books. Excellent location, clean, friendly! Close to shopping and close to cheap fuel and close to the freeway. I plan to stay here again in the future. Just what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express.

Typical Holiday Express in Lakewood, WA. Right off / on the freeway. Our first night was $177 per night-- way overpriced for all the freeway noise and no special add ons. Lots of traffic in the area and freeway construction. Free wifi, microwave, refrigerator, wine opener.

I enjoyed my 6 nights here, the rooms were spacious, clean, and modern. However the area immediately surrounding could make some a little nervous. There is a nice shopping/dining area in driving distance though.
