We stayed here at the end of a driving tour of Washington and Oregon, the night before we flew out. We wanted to be close to Tacoma to see Defiance Park in the morning without paying too much, and this was a good solution. It was about 10 minutes from downtown Tacoma and maybe 15 to the park. It's on a busy street near the sound, so there is a decent amount of industrial traffic, but the hotel is set far enough back that we didn't notice any noise.
The rooms were clean enough. Our room wasn't quite ready so we had to wait a few minutes. We were also double-booked by some mistake, but the owners didn't make a big deal of it and canceled the other booking. Breakfast was adequate with about a dozen tables to sit and eat. This was definitely a good bargain if you're looking to be close to Tacoma for a budget price.
