Certificate of Excellence

Great service - arrived early (1:30 pm) but was checked in and given a room. She even went to the trouble of finding my points account as my card was somewhere in my luggage.

Very big room with two queen beds, desk with chair, table with 2 chairs, big fridge, microwave, air conditioning. good breakfast with eggs, yogurt, waffles,etc. Big breakfast room.

10 minute drive to Tacoma Mall for shopping.

Denny's across the street.

I'll stay here my next time through Tacoma.

We were pleasantly surprised to see how clean and nicely decorated the lobby was. The lady at the front desk was excellent. She was very pleasant and moved us to a quieter room. Love this place because the pool, gym and whirlpool are open 24 hours. We went to a concert at the Tacoma Dome and it was quite nice to sit in the hot tub before bed. What a treat. The breakfast was pretty good in the morning and we enjoyed the late checkout. Glad we stayed there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the freeway side. Nice and quiet.

Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, staff professional. Overall, I'd def recommend. Complimentary breakfast was good. Nice workout room on the 4th floor. My team had ten rooms on various floors and we all heard the same noises thought the night and early am hours so we are convinced there was a ghost here but we would def stay here again.

Wife and I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for one night while going to a Taylor Swift concert at the Tacoma Dome. It's a nice, new hotel, pretty normal for a Holiday Inn Express (I mean that as a compliment because it's a great chain), with a good location and easy to get to.

Would stay again if we had a hotel need in the area.

In town for family medical emergency, needed a place close to the family. Very happy that this was our selected destination. King suite was large with kitchen area and sofa. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast included was most helpful with our busy schedule. This is not a resort, but the bed felt like it....extremely comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Tacoma area.

Room Tip: Corner room, away from the street. The King Suites are quite large with lots of room to move about...

Friendly and expedient front desk staff. decent-sized room with fridge. clean, quiet except for highway traffic noise in the morning. (Our room faced the highway.) Plenty of free parking. Very convenient to I-5. Large breakfast area (but as usual, few breakfast selections were healthy). Good choice if you need to stop during a long drive.

We found this location by luck on the way back home to Canada. Right off of I5. It used to be a La Quinta Inn before. The price was much better than other hotels and motels farther up north. We found it with our GPS. Great staff, super clean, large room, good breakfast including eggs, ham, pancakes, fruit and juice. The thing that will have me back and the high light is the 24 hour pool and gym. The pillows were great too. You have the choice of soft or firm. Great stay. We are fully refreshed and ready to head home.
