Silver Cloud Inn Tacoma - Waterfront
Ranked #1 of 27 Hotels in Tacoma
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Spent 3 nights here while visiting my daughter who attends the U. Of Puget Sound. Third or fourth time that I have stayed here. Love the place. Beautiful setting on the shores of Commencement Bay, with a spectacular view of the Olympics. Wifi and a solid, if unimaginative, breakfast included. Not the least-expensive option in Tacoma, but still a good value, considering what you are getting. Have to climb 30th St. to get to UPS, but it's only about 20 min. walk. Note: The hotel is across the street from train tracks, and Amtrak and freight trains pass through regularly, including at night. I like train sounds, so don't mind, and they are not too loud. Sorry that my daughter is graduating, as I probably won't be back for awhile.

Silver Cloud is located on the outskirts of Tacoma, right on the water. There is a nice walking path that leads to a couple of pocket parks with well placed benches. There are train tracks about 50 yards from the hotel entrance, and the passing trains made for some good entertainement for the kids. I never heard the trains at night, but I was on the opposite side of the building.

There is no restaurant at the hotel, and it is a drive to nearly anywhere to eat. The Ram restaurant does deliver to the room though. Note that Tacoma has a few things going for it, but eating out is not one of them - it's just not that kind of town.

This is the place for you if you want to be in a quiet, uncrowded location with a great view (but no pool). The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there is a shuttle into town. I would return.

I chose the Silver Cloud Inn for its location on the water and was not disappointed. It was very quiet and peaceful with comfortable bedding and furnishings along with the great views. There are several restaurants within walking distance, and the hotel is located right on the beautiful walking path along Ruston Way. The staff was very friendly and professional. I have spent way more money to stay in hotels that weren't nearly as nice as the Silver Cloud, and I would definitely choose it again.

Room Tip: I had a king suite on the top floor and it was very quiet.

The hotel had beautiful views and a great breakfast. The staff was nice and the room was clean. We barely slept the 2 nights there - we enjoy sleeping with the windows open and could not do so because of the freight train that passed by every 2-3 hours.With the windows closed the noise was faint, but the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine.

Hi Barbara9898,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience at the Silver Could Inn Tacoma. I am very sorry that your stay was not a restful one. We take tremendous pride in our product and work very hard to ensure our guest’s expectations are exceeded. It is unfortunate that we did not meet your expectations during your stay.

I am hopeful that you informed the front desk of the noise issue in your room. If you did and our maintenance staff was unable to address this issue I would be curious to hear about it. We try very hard to correct any guest issue we are aware of during their stay.

If you could contact me at your convenience I would very much appreciate it. You are welcome to do so at any time.

Best regards,
Dan O’Leary

Unexpected bonus was free shuttle service within 5 miles. That meant we could be dropped off at the bridge to the Museum of Glass and picked up again when done -- without worrying about parking and traffic! Were in town for Dr. appt and luckily that was also within 5 miles! Since we didn't know where we were going, it was so helpful to be driven and dropped off. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with directions to the Mall, restaurant recommendations, etc. Room was spacious and very comfortable -- beds CLEAN and comfy. Food and boardwalk nearby.

Stayed for leisure over the weekend as an out of state traveler. Reserved and stayed in king size bed with jacuzzi.

Overall: Would recommend to others, but be prepared to pay premium rates.

Positives: (in no particular order)
+ Clean rooms, complimentary robes for hotel stay, mini fridge and microwave
+ Quiet rooms, heard no noises from neighbors while in-room
+ Complimentary in-room wireless internet (access with hotel stay) and parking
+ Hot breakfast includes sausage, scrambled eggs, waffles, bagels, muffins, fruits, yogurt, orange/apple juices
+ Jacuzzi in-room for privacy and convenience
+ Nearby Northern Fish Co. offers seafood lunch options, just minutes walking from hotel

Negatives:
- Lights had buzzing/humming sound near doorway
- Access to lights were difficult from jacuzzi
- View was directed more towards street than harbor
- Outside pathway allows for remote chance of onlookers into room
- Above average rates for stay at an "inn"

I recently stayed here on a business trip. the rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was limited but got the basics covered with some scrambled eggs and sausage a banana and some coffee. Parking is on premises so that is very convenient and the view over the harbour charming. Would be happy to stay here again. Note to management proabaly good to get the carpet in the corridor cleaned as it lets the rest of the hotel down.

Room Tip: A view over the harbour but this is most rooms. I would ask for the first floor just for privacy.
