This hotel chain used to be pretty good but today was shocking. The first glance as you entered the establishment it looked pretty nice. Then when you got your room the elevator took a while to get to you and the second floor looked like it needed some loving care. The walls needed painting and some doors to the rooms...

The check-in process was okay, that was probably the only thing that was okay. When we got to our room it was smelly and humid. We almost asked for another room, until we realized the windows opened (and we felt that the other rooms would prob be just as bad, we understood why we got the rate we did). There...

Booked a room for 3 nights but left after one night. Our room smelled horrid, big stain on floor, several stains on chair and another large one on curtains. The hallway smell was even worse. Warning do not stay here until they scrub down from top to bottom.

The staff was very friendly and pleasent but the room were not what we expected. We stayed in 3 room as we are a family of 12. Two of our room did not have screens on the Windows and we have kids so it was a safety issue for us. All three rooms had a horable smell and there was...

The front desk staff and maids all were accommodating. Room seemed somewhat dated but was very clean, and of a nice size. Breakfast was good -- sausage and eggs and the usual other stuff -- with mostly bar-high chairs, which short me doesn't appreciate but it looked good. I was able to adjust my room temp to very cold, which...

Would not suggest, I just spent a night here in the jet tub room. Of course it was a fairly grimy room but the jets in the tub did not work. I called down and they sent maintenance. Who did not fix it, so at check out I explained this and the manager had a attitude and did not offer...

I wish that the room were as nice as the staff. We rented one of the Jetted Tub Suites which was a mistake. The size of the suite was great with two large rooms, but the main bedroom, which has the jetted tub also has the bathroom. There is no door between the toilet and where you sleep. If you...

My work booked me here since most of the other hotels were booked. A lot of military families stay here. The rooms probably weren't bad when new but furniture and carpet are worn and stained. A/C was horribly loud. I couldn't wait to check out.

I stayed here to attend a conference in downtown Tacoma. The room price was excellent considering every other hotel was sold out. I was greeted warmly by the ladies working. They had everything prepared so I was in my room within 10 minutes even upgraded me to a suite. Needless to say I checked out feeling satisfied. Kudos to your...

The hotel is very nice, yet of average value. The rooms look very outdated and the pure emptiness of it was just un-settling. We bought a king suite and the living room had a couch and chair along with a TV and a very small desk. The bedroom was nicer with the king bed and a TV in front of...
