This hotel was super clean and the staff was very accommodating. The pool and jacuzzi were open 24 hours, which was fantastic. The front desk staff was so helpful! This was a good value for the money. Will stay here again!

The entrance is tight, if not in turn lane immediately after the light then you miss it. The lobby, breakfast area is bright, clean. The room was clean, dated. The surrounding area is loud, dirty and a tad scary. Stayed in many Holiday Inns, this one is pretty typical but could use some up dating.

Super nice location with friendly staff. This facility has a 24/7 pool/hut tub/work out area. Near JBLM and is great for a weekend getaway or a TDY location. Plenty of good restaurants near by whether you want to get it to go or sit down for a meal. But don't go out for breakfast, they do a great spread.

The hotel was very very clean. The house keeping staff was excellent. Breakfast was well stocked with plenty of options. Our air was either running or it was too hot in the room. It would have been more comfortable if there was a happy medium. Parking was limited and tight! Neighborhood was a little sketchy looking but we didn't have...

Stayed here with family for a function 1 block away. The area isn't too flashy but the hotel was great for an Express one. Parking is free outside on their small lot. The rooms were spacious & had comfy beds, liked having free coffee in the room but also all day coffee & cookies in the lobby! The continental breakfast...

I was given a Jacuzzi suite on a late night arrival. The front desk was quite efficient and within minutes I was at the corner room of very good size. The color of the curtain is somehow strange but it does the job well of darkening the room. It could also be the texture and the material of the carpet,...

Room was clean, had refrigerator and a keurig coffee maker. Breakfast was normal hotel buffet style, but they kept it full and fresh. Walking distance to a few good places to eat. Hostess was very friendly and helpful.

This place has very comfortable rooms and really spacious. They serve warm fresh baked cookies in the evening and they have friendly staff. Best of all is the breakfast. It was a large spread and they had a very sizable variety. Plus they had this instant pancake maker that was totally fun, flavorful, and just plain cool! Hit the button...

This was our first time staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Tacoma and it won't be our last!

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.
