I stayed here while attending a week long workshop at the University of Puget Sound. Wonderful! The front desk was very helpful. The rooms were spacious and quiet. I had a great view of the Sound and the Olympic peninsula. Be sure the ask for a room on the west side so you won't be disturbed by the whistle at...

This is a 2 star hotel at best. It's only value is the view. The trains run across the street all night so if you're a light sleeper don't stay here. The rooms need remodeling, with furniture and decor in poor to fair condition. There is no one to assist with luggage. The area is lovely and great for walking...

One of Tacoma's better hotels. Located right on the waterfront in the Ruston area within walking distance of numerous restaurants. Request 2nd or 3rd floor for a slightly better view with the Olympic Mountains and ferry traffic to the north and Mt Rainier and the Port of Tacoma to the south. A generous breakfast and the Tacoma newspaper is included...

I loved this hotel! It was a little outdated for the price of rooms, but the view is truly breathtaking. Right on the Tacoma Water Front, you are close to many dining choices. The water is beautiful, beware it gets over crowded on nice days. My love took me here on my birthday night, out suite was beautiful & it...

My husband picked this hotel for the location (right on the water) and the free parking. I would pi k it again for the electric fireplace, which warmed us up after a very cold flight) and the jacuzzi that sits under a picture window overlooking the sound. The hotel does seem to be old, but is well-maintained. The kitchen is...

Whenever we visit Tacoma, this is the only property we stay at. The front desk staff are so friendly and helpful. As we were there for the University of Puget Sound's Commencement, we had leis delivered from Hawaii. The front desk received the box and kept it in their refrigerators to keep the leis fresh. They have a convenient shuttle...

We loved it here! All rooms seem to have a lovely view of the beautiful harbour. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms were nicely decorated, cosy and warm. Lovely linens and a nice bathroom. There were many restaurants within an easy distance and a Starbucks about a block away. Plenty of free parking for our car too.

Very peaceful. The view is so beautiful. Staff is friendly and helpful. I have a disability and they were so helpful. Walking outside on the walkway over the water is amazing. Planning my next trip already.

We stayed at the Silver Cloud because its location over the water looked pretty cool. And as it turned out the views were great. The room was very clean and nicely remodeled. The hotel has to be fairly old but everything felt newly updated. The only negative is the HVAC seemed to be fighting itself with very warm hallways causing...

We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn on a Saturday and Sunday night and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We wanted to be close to where my son lives while also enjoying the Tacoma Waterfront. The hotel is in a great location and sits over the water. The view from our room was amazing! The staff were all very friendly and...
