This was our first time staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Tacoma and it won't be our last! From the warm and friendly reception we received from Danica in the lobby (while accommodating our request for early check in), to the clean, quiet, spacious, and well-appointed room, we were very pleased with our stay. We were a bit too...

So many hotels include a "breakfast", which us often nothing more than stale donuts, juice, and coffee. This hotel offers the usual, but reals eggs, sausage, made to order pancakes, etc. It is conveniently located of I-5, and just down the road from the Tacoma Mall for great dining and shopping options.

Spent 3 nights here before checking daughter into college. Never stayed w this brand, but the rooms were sizable, beds were comfy and clean; soap and shampoo were adequate, towels were fine, and they put new bottles of water in the fridge nightly. Breakfast was fine for the price; frozen omelets, a hokey-make-your-own-pancakes machine, instant oatmeal, several breakfast meats, and...

I sat down for my morning meeting at the oval office. Everything was going nicely. Until this fateful moment happened, as depicted below. Not only was the tp not close. It wasn't even CLOSE!

The good - the staff was very friendly and the cinnamon rolls were good as usual. The bad - As other people have commented, the parking area was small, spots were tight and the location of the hotel seemed to be in not so great of an area. Also difficult at times to make a left into the hotel since...

Manager Alexis is awesome! My party desperately needed a place to stay late at night. We were weary road travelers and couldn't be more in need (slight exaggeration) of lodging. Alexis was cheerful, helpful, and refreshingly accommodating. Secondly, Daniel helped us as Alexis needed to leave. Daniel was helpful and friendly as well. Breakfast was nice, there were several offerings...

Location is poor. Parking area is small and somewhat iffy. Friendly check-in. Room was ok. It is a very old property. I would recommend a complete makeover, to make it maintain the brand name. By the way, breakfast was good. Bedsheets and pillows were satisfactory. The towels(which are white), all had dark stains on them. In summation, I would call...
