It's not a fancy room but it's clean and comfortable. For the price it was perfect

not ddedkoped out. & prof. front desk . plentyof parking. cdl discount

Let's start with the pros: the sheets and towels appeared to be clean. 50% of the staff were friendly. I didn't see any signs of bed bugs. Cons: We got there an hour before check in and a woman was counting cash behind the cash register. I just stood there and waited since I did not want to interrupt. She finished counting the cash and looked toward me. I asked her if there was a chance to check in early. With a rude tone she stated that she did not have a clean room yet. It was obvious that she was exhausted and over it. We leave and come back to get a room that ends up being occupied. It was quite the shock when I tried to force the door open and the man inside came out yelling. Seriously, we were given keys to an occupied room. It was latched from the inside other wise we would have gone right in. We did get an unoccupied room that was labeled as no -smoking. All of my belongings wreak of smoke. I brought my own pillow that will now need to be dry cleaned since it can't go in the washer. It was hard to breath without getting a headache. In retrospect I should have asked for a refund and slept in the car after I saw the room.

It was the cheaper option so wasn't expecting a grand room. But I walked in and the room smelled like urine. Asked for them to clean it, smell remained. I think it was the carpet. The smell was awful, sorry can't come back.

We have stayed at this motel 7-8 times in the past few years and had no real problems. This time, unfortunately,there were some issues. The coffee maker did not work correctly and the toilet (worked at first), quit flushing when we returned to the room later that night. All things considered, would probably consider staying there again, as management seemed interested in fixing the problems. Moreover, you will not find any 5 star hotels in Fife, WA.

Reasonable place for the cost, but not particularly satisfying.

Seemed to be in the industrial area, a couple small truck stops nearby, 1 small gas station/convenient store within walking distance. Room was hot and AC did not work well. Other temporary residents seemed shady, I felt a little uncomfortable.

We moved to Tacoma and needed a place to stay while looking for houses - Travelodge was perfect! Like many hotels our room needed it's carpet replaced, but everything else was outstanding. Definitely recommend.

Worst hotel I have ever visited. The room was very small, dark and had a slight odor. The shower was terrible. The faucet was backwards, turn it to hot, get cold.

Nice clean room not fancy but clean and friendly staff

My friend & I attended our yearly Mary Kay Career Conference and even though we only spent around 6 hours at the hotel mainly to sleep, our overall experience what incredible.

The staff here was friendly, and I was glad to have a place near my event to stay, but the smell of the air freshener in the room was cloying and oppressive, and the facilities, while clean and functional, were one step short of comfortable. A king sized bed in the room we stayed in took up most of the room's floor space and caused it to feel quite small. The continental breakfast was nice as an amenity. This hotel would be great for a long-haul driver looking for a comfortable bed, but not for a couple that wants to spend any more time in the room than it takes to sleep.

The staff was courteous and check-in was quick and easy. They are in the process of upgrading the rooms- the newer rooms are very nice, the older rooms need the upgrade. Even though it is close to the freeway, with the room fan or AC on you don't hear any traffic noise. The continental breakfast is the standard fare for motels. The location is excellent, with easy freeway access. There are quite a few restaurants in close proximity. A good value for a short stay.

At $57 with the special discount, the hotel is as cheap as the price. The room was very small. The sink didn't drain well. Had to brush my teeth in the bath tub. Mold in the bathtub. The bed was ok, but you can tell it was very old. It was noisy with freeway and truckers stopping there a lot. Breakfast stopped too early, about 9am. Overall, I would recommend to people if they're on a strict budget that wants to pay less than $60 on hotel.

Small room was adequately equipped, though no clock or radio. Bed OK, but you would not choose this place for its memorable comfort. Checkin was slow - why do they need to xerox my driver's license? - but uneventful. Did not sample AM breakfast offerings. Clientele not the most considerate - gratuitous noise by one guest leaving at 4 AM woke us. Blue collar hotel catering to lower-middle class guests.

It was great. Over night stay, no problem. Hey, casino's are right there. Room was clean and clean. It was a little small, but it was only me. Over all, if you're alone or with a partner; go for itl

While I have heard that some rooms at this hotel were less than average, mine was clean, the staff was friendly. For a cheap hotel I thought it was well worth the price. The weekly rate was actually less than what Orbitz charged.

This place was truly revolting! DO NOT stay here, no matter how desperately you need a place. The price is tempting, but trust me, so not worth it. There are plenty of hotels in the area, just keep driving. You’ll be much better off without the blood stained walls, grungy faucets and toilets that obviously hadn’t have a good scrubbing since the mid ‘90’s. None of the appliances worked properly, if at all. INCLUDING the telephone, yikes!! The bed smelt horrible and we did not feel safe or clean enough to sleep, even though we tried.

Great price & location. Amenities--A/C, refrigerator, & microwave were great. Continental breakfast was nice but ended at 9 a.m.--not much signage in foyer or rooms about times.

This hotel was ideally located for our 5 day stay in Seattle. It was clean, nice, not too modern or too roomy. We did not need anything bigger as we only slept in the room. The hotel supplied a very nice continental breakfast but only til 9 a.m. so we missed it one morning as the times were not posted in the foyer. Refrigerator, microwave and air conditioning were definitely appreciated. Located 2 minutes off I-5 very near gas stations, and restaurants and 20 minutes from the airport. We will stay here again.
