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 The rooms look very outdated and the pure emptiness of it was just un-settling.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...

We love Red Lion this is our go to hotel chain. Youre welcomed as soon as you walk in with the friendly staff. Tacoma is a great location easy access from the freeway. The rooms are clean and big. We stayed in the hot tub room this time. Very relaxing didn't want to leave. Breakfast is stellar, great selection.

Had a fantastic stay, the beds are the most comfortable beds I have slept in while at a hotel. The rooms were cozy and welcoming, and the Staff was amazing. The breakfast was great and had a lot of choices. Then made a last minute reservation for my Mother in law to stay the next night and they were happy...

Great experience we love it here since they welcome our dog! Rooms are not fancy but comfortable. Location was easy to find since its right off of the freeway. Pool and breakfast are great. Shay at the front desk was very personable. May not be the newest hotel but it has never steered me wrong yet.

Shay was a wonderful front desk clerk. She went through all the perks of the hotel and even asked if I would like to check the room before I rented it. The room was great, the bed was great. Hotel was excellent but Shay is really the one who made the stay special.
