Close to the Dome

Posted Jun 30, 2017
Pros: I like having a kitchen area, so I can bring dinner and have it in the room.
Cons: Making sure the rooms are ready when you check in. It was a huge inconvenience to have to wait over a half hour to get into our rooms.
Location: It's close to the Dome and casino.
I have stayed at this facility in the past, and it is a good hotel for the price. I stayed here with friends to attend a concert at the Tacoma Dome. It is a quick drive and you are there. I was unhappy with our check in. The desk attendant was very pleasant and apologetic, but when we arrived at 5pm, both our rooms were not cleaned or ready and we had to wait over 30 minutes to get into our rooms and that pushed us back on time to get to the concert. Check in time was 3pm, so 2 hours later at 5pm our rooms still weren't ready. It was a huge inconvenience.

Based on first impressions, we almost didn't stay

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: The rooms were nicer than the common areas.
Cons: Cleanliness of the hotel common areas.
Location: Was a 2 minute drive to Tacoma Dome for concerts.
Lobby dirty, staff friendly and quick, elevator dirty and smelled of marijuana, alcohol, and pee. Hallways to the rooms needed vacuuming. Opened our door to our room and was relieved. Clean room, nice kitchenette, clean bathroom. Hotel DOES NOT USE FITTED BED SHEETS, so halfway through the night you are touching bare mattress- ICKY!

Will not book here again

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: One lady at the desk was very pleasant.
Cons: Everything
Location: Lots to do around this area, beautiful city
Very disappointing. The rooms were clean but they had nothing to offer When dishes were needed they were out or could give you one or two items (pots pans, dishes, cups etc). They don't wash your sheets until you stay for over 5 days and you have to take your towels to the desk to get replacements. It lacks the comfort of a hotel, more like a studio apt and your on your own. It does have a full size refrigerator but that was the only plus. The beds are full size so not very comfortable for a couple.. No exercise room either

Nice location

Posted Jun 23, 2017
Stayed a few times now, the hotel could use some upgrades. Staff is always friendly and the location is great. It's a decent place if you just want the basic suite.

Basic accommodations in convenient spot

Posted Jun 6, 2017
Easy to get to from the interstate--about 40 minutes from downtown Seattle and 15 from Tacoma. Room was basic but functional. Front desk staff was very helpful. Refrigerator worked, had to ask for multiple hairdryers as the first one didn't work.

Not clean - strange smells

Posted May 20, 2017
Front desk staff was nice but ditzy. First room they gave me was not clean yet. So they got me a different room. This second room smelled like jalepenos and burnt salsa. The door handles and carpet were filthy. Oh, at first the key card to this room did not work. So I had to go back, again, to the front desk for them to get me new cards.

working at the port

Posted May 11, 2017
the hotel is in an industrial type area. Lots of truck traffic, and the type that comes with it. not bad if you are working nearby. I would not recommend for a family stay.

Would not honor reservation

Posted Apr 5, 2017
Arrived at night, hotel staff was rude and had no clean rooms, I was told. Blonde woman who was at the frontdesk, should be fired and should not have a job dealing with the public. I even had my 10 yo child with me. Bad experience.
