“Unique location - on the pier.”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

The good points - this property is about as close as one can be "on the water". It is basically on its own pier. All the rooms have a water view but the rooms at the end facing the sound have a complete water view. The best rooms seem to be at the far end of the hotel. (They have big opening windows with full water view and at least one we saw has a fireplace). Our room was first floor off the lobby - opposite the kitchen (?) and noisy from 6-8 am during breakfast buffet hours. Our friends on the 2nd floor - with the fireplace, had a similar problem with noise which came from the hotel's laundry room. This property location though is perfect ... On a long straight waterfront stretch of jogging path/ park. Only a couple miles from Defiance Point Park - an absolute must visit for hikes, scenery, picnics, and their incredible gardens.
Also within walking distance from several waterfront restaurants and bars. I would be particular about the room location, but would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and stay here again in the future.

The Silver Cloud Inn in Tacoma was nice and watery and also walking distance to some good restaurants. The downside -- it's across the street from tracks filled with mile-long trains that chug past at all hours -- doesn't detract too much. The walking-distance "olde town" and driving-distance Proctor Street section -- shops, cafes and a famers market -- were fun. I'd stay there again.

This review is part of our 1st time 18 day trip to Alaska taken in july 2013. The weather was exceptional and we recommend everybody makes this pilgrimage to a place where you are traveling in art. On our 1st night we stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn in Tacoma WA. Our ocean view room was spacious and clean with a whirlpool tub out in the room (which we didn't need). The included buffet breakfast was very good, and the inn is very close to many waterfront restaurants. The only minus we noted was that a public pier surrounds the hotel but we experienced no problems. Overall we would highly recommend this hotel and give it a solid A

Room Tip: unless you need the whirlpool tub, opt out for a little more floor space

Our stay at Silver Cloud was really nice and quiet. The breakfast was nice and the lobby and eating areas provided enough room for everyone to sit. Our room was large and comfortable and, most importantly - clean. The staff seemed eager to help and gave us a good recommendation for dinner. The inn is right on the water and the surrounding area is very nice for an evening walk or morning run.

Room Tip: We requested a room on the uppermost floor and were very happy with the view and the quiet.

We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn over the 4th of July to enjoy the air show and fireworks display over the Tacoma waterfront, and to avoid fighting the crowds and the driving/parking hassle. The staff were incredibly well-organized and helpful, our Jacuzzi room was perfect for us, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We absolutely loved that they reserved the pier in front of the hotel specifically for hotel guests - what a great way to enjoy the evening!

Room Tip: Book early - the hotel fills up fast over the 4th, and a 2-night stay is generally required.

My recent weekend stay at the Silver Cloud Inn far exceeded my expectations. Checking in early on Friday, the very pleasant and professional manager accommodated my early check in with no hassle. I found my room (King room with fireplace, huge flatscreen TV) to be a cozy delight. The views are amazing, both at sunrise and sunset. I was pleasantly surprised with array of items served at the complimentary breakfast in the morning. Having to do some business during my stay, I was thrilled with the high speed internet and did not experience any problems. The Inn's location was fantastic- a short walk to many restaurants, the local Starbucks and several piers for great photo ops. I would absolutely recommend this Inn to anyone traveling to the Tacoma area.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get a room with a fireplace!

My parents recently stayed here for a night on their 40th anniversary road trip. To help make their stay more special, I called ahead to pay to upgrade their room and have some extras in their room when they arrived. The GM, Dan O'Leary, personally called me to help arrange to make my parents's stay perfect. He went to the store himself to pick up a basket of treats to put in their room. And I paid to upgrade their room from a King Waterfront room, to a a Deluxe King Waterfront room with a fireplace. When they arrived, the hotel had put them in an even nicer room way out over the water, with a jacuzzi tub and everything - on the house! The hotel was very accommodating in helping me make the stay special for my parents, and my parents had a great room with a great view. The hotel, and their GM, went above and beyond and certainly earned a 5 star rating!
