Hotel stay was ok

Pros: I enjoyed their gym, pool, Jacuzzi, and sauna.
Cons: Hotel needs to be updated and use some re-modeling.
Location: It is just 2 minutes away from a small shopping center that mostly consist of restaurants. Other than that not too much. 15 min away from downtown.
This hotel is about 15 minutes away from downtown Tacoma. Hotel is a little old and out dated. Could use some re-modeling. The employees at the front desk were very nice and extremely helpful, but if you are talking to them and the manager or owner (not sure which one she is) got involved, she was not very nice nor did it seem like she wanted to be helpful to any of my very simple request such as requesting a taxi to be at the hotel for me in the morning.

The room was very clean!! It was a bit noisy due to being so close to the highway and having outdated windows but if you ran the room fan it drowned out most of the highway noise.

This hotel was very clean. Staff was excellent and met all of our needs. Bathroom is quite small, and it is literally on the side of the freeway or I would have given all five stars.

Convenient location

Posted Dec 26, 2016
Pros: The warmth and courtesy of the staff, the attractive decor in the lobby, the comfort of the room are all features I enjoy.
Cons: A little wider selection of items in the breakfast would be nice, such as a steamer heated tray of sausages or scrambled eggs, but not important.
Location: As in my opening remarks, I mentioned shopping, freeway access, good city streets allowing avoidance of the freeway as desired.
For visiting my family without having to access the freeway, or for using the freeway if I choose, this hotel is in an excellent location. In proximity to shopping, restaurants, and the road to the church I attend locally I don't think I could find a better location than the Shilo Inn on Hosmer in Tacoma, WA. I enjoy the courtesy and friendliness of the staff as well, who make me feel at home. I always look forward to staying at the Shilo Inn when I come to Tacoma.

The whole place needs upgrades everything is rusting even the shower heads. Beds were hard and the pillows were small and flat. The "heated pool" gave us all blue lips and the continental was a joke.

My stay at the Shilo Inn and Suites was wonderful. The location serviced me well as I was going back and forth from UPS as my daughter is a sophomore there. My room was spacious, clean and had a microwave, fridge, king size bed. I enjoyed swimming laps in the indoor heated pool and the complementary breakfast each morning!

Stayed one night after a concert at Tacoma dome, road noise is a little loud but we weren't in our room much so it didn't bother us. Overall good stay!
