Convenient location. Quiet hotel. Awesome staff!

One person on hotel staff was terrible. He threatened multiple times that he would have me removed from the hotel. I had asked him for new key cards because they were demagnetized. The guy is crazy. I called the police because I didn’t feel safe with him on duty. I reported it the staff the next day, but I never heard back from anyone. I will never stay there again. Horrible stay!!!!

Bathrooms definitely need updating, broken tiles and bathtubs looked like the grout needed deep cleaning. Microwaves are so old and not energy efficient, worried we would start an electrical fire by using it. Staff was super nice, room was secure, but having a safe in the room would have made me feel a lot better especially with the hotel being located in the area of Tacoma it is. Loved the veteran parking! Loved the pool & hot tub being open 24-hours. Wish the continental breakfast has a few more options and that the syrup machine was closer to the waffles or the butter/jam bin. Also, there should have been little sauce cups for the syrup so people weren’t forced to rub their freshly made waffle against the machine that everyone has touched. Also, it wasn’t clea what cups should be used for the juice machine. There were cups for the coffee and little clear plastic cups next to the water descender. Not that we are heartless people, but there was a homeless person every few feet or so on the surrounding sidewalks and corners. We also found a razor blade in the parking spot next to us on the hotel grounds.

The only thing I didn't like was the bathtub. It was not comfortable for reclining to soak.

Thank God, we only stayed one night. This hotel was in poor sanity conditions. The beds were smelling tabaco. I didn’t like that the water that was coming out of the sink was smelling weird. Poor condition of outlets. The Gym didn’t have enough room, everything was looking dirty in the pool area. The jacuzzi wasn’t working. Didn’t like this hotel at all.

Room smelt mouldy and was not pleasant. It is not value for money. Very poor and won’t recommend to anyone

They didn't have a snack room available only vending machines and they posted sauna and jacuzzi available but staff said permanently closed.

Nice staff Nice area Very convenient Good location plenty of places to eat, shop get gas

Our room at some old fried food on the arm of the chair either ketchup or jelly had some issues with the toilet not refilling and flushing

very comfortable, and a good breakfast, nice people

easy check in and out. nice location. great staff, pleasing food

The parking is ample. There is a restaurant across the street, but no crosswalks. You literally have to drive. The AC is great. The front desk staff ignored us once we were booked. The elevator is too slow. They need two. The pool is great, but the hot tub needed more water. The breakfast is all carbs, very little protein. The breakfast seating area is ample. The beds were clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff were all smiles, and very professional.❤️

Great place. Its a little dated but who caresnnirs clean and cozy.. Id spend my money there again.

My apologies for how you were treated. Keys do become demagnetized occasionally and the correct way to handle is just to remake the key. I have spoken with the young man and have done some retraining with him. The way it was handled is not the way we usually do things here. Again , my apologies.
