We came for the First Night in Tacoma. Didn't leave much time for planning. Probably might consider staying again if they clean up the property a little. Needs good cleaning, new carpet and pool towels. The staff was very polite and helpful. Ok value. We don't travel often so when we do it's a treat. Wish it was a little...

Would recommend to anyone unless they don't care what their room looks like. Lobby and security rock other then that rooms nasty. I came here to spend Christmas with family only spent very little time in the room due to not being clean and very run down.

Staff was friendly and that was about the only good thing with this stay. You would think that if you made reservation at a Red Lion there would be standards and quality, this was not the case at this one. Rooms looked dirty, lock didn't work on my first room and had to move to another room. I thought that...

Very good. It was perfectly quiet. It seemed like I was all alone in the hotel. The staff was quite nice. From Sophia at the desk to the cleaning staff who were all friendly. Convenient parking and a very good complimentary breakfast.

Staff was friendly, facilities were nice. When we needed to stay longer than we had planned, the check-in staff accommodated us, even though the hotel was busy and full. The housekeeping staff was friendly, prompt and helpful.

Good value for Tacoma. Quiet and comfortable. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Most recently we checked in very late on Saturday night; Sophie at the front desk went above and beyond to accommodate our special requests, despite the hotel being fully booked. She found us a room that not only suited our needs, it far exceeded our expectations.

Poor place to stay! Stay someplace else if you want a fun, and great experience for a date with your spouse in the city. This was our first trip spending the night on a "date" in Tacoma and we were disappointed in the accomodations.
