“Okay in a pinch for one night, but keep looking if you can.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

Staff was great! That was why I stayed and did not find another place. It was close to where I needed to be. If I had a choice, I would keep looking. But did not know the area. I was there for business from Texas. Tacoma Mall accross the street which is great if you want to shop. Overall appearance is good . And if you we're on a strict budget this wod work we'll for families.

We stayed here for almost a month and we were very pleased with the cleanliness and the kindness of the staff. We had an issue in our room at one point and they were very concerned and quickly got someone to come and fix it for us. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the Tacoma area.

I would normally not consider this type of hotel [prolonged stay setup] as I'm rarely at one location to really need such a hotel. I was in Tacoma for some business and the other folks involved in the meeting were staying there so I was allocated a room here as it was much simpler than having multiple receipts from multiple hotels.

It served its purpose - a comfortable bed, reasonably clean, surprisingly quiet, had a tee vee and basic amenities. It did not have shampoo in the bathroom which was a surprise as I can't remember the last time I'd stayed at a hotel where shampoo wasn't provided, but fortunately I was able to make do! It was certainly an illustration as to how I have come to just assuming that certain things are always going to be available in a hotel room, but I wouldn't consider this to be a shortcoming of the hotel; rather, my error in assuming such things.

Overall, the hotel was suitable, inexpensive and right next door to the Tacoma Mall, so if you're in Tacoma and need a decent, inexpensive room, this hotel fills that bill. I would not make this hotel a normal place to stay when in Tacoma as I tend to favor Hilton and Starwood properties [mainly due to their benefit programs], but short of that one element, this place worked well.

Room Tip: I did not rate the swimming pool and fitness center as I did not think to notice whether they even h...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. I'm so pleased to hear that we were able to fit your needs and offer a comfortable stay during your business trip. I would like to note that it is a natural assumption for shampoo to be available at hotels. While we do not put it in the rooms it is always available at the Front Desk, as are other commonly forgotten items such as toothbrushes and razors. I apologize this was not explained to you upon arrival at the hotel. Thank you again for your review. We look forward to seeing you again, should your travels bring you back to our area.

We immensely enjoyed our stay at Extended Stay in March. Our guest service agent, Roel, was most polite and helpful. We were really impressed by his service. You could tell that he enjoyed his job and took it very it seriously. The rooms were more than spacious and the price was right. The building itself was a little difficult to locate but it was in a good location.

The only bad part about our stay was the hotel's choice of using Showtime as part as it's television lineup. One of Showtime's channels was quite pornographic and explicit. I can't help but think that children could have easy access to this undesirable programming. I think that the hotel should eliminate such programming to prevent children from having access to it. I found the content very upsetting.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room away from interstate 5 if you want a quieter stay.

This hotel is close to Fort Lewis if you have family or friends stationed there. It is also right across the street from a fabulous shopping mall! The rooms are very comfortable and have several convenient things in the room to make your stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I would reccomment this hotel to all who come to Tacoma, WA for any reason!! Great value, and great stay!!

I didn't have high expectations for this hotel based on its location, but you know what, I was very surprised. It is located directly across from Tacoma Mall which could be a plus in some cases. In my case I found Extended Stay to be immaculate, roomy, economical and friendly and the rooms come with full kitchens. However, there are two minor issues I had: it is difficult to find the street entrance and there is steady white noise from I-5. Had to mention both but again, both were minor. This is a good choice when staying right in Tacoma because of its fairly central location.

Room Tip: I'm not sure you can avoid the freeway white noise in any room.

It was so great to stay somewhere that was so friendly. I hadn't been in Tacoma in 7 years and the staff made it seem as if I had never left. I felt at home while staying here. They were all very accommodating to the needs I had.
