"Probably won't stay there again"
As a single traveling business woman, I was a bit disturbed to be asked for money at 9:30pm at night upon arrival by a man claiming he needed gas money in the parking lot while I was getting out of my car. Thank goodness another male guest pulled up beside me and provided me some safety. After checking in and being told that some scam artists are calling […] rooms, posing as the front desk, and asking for credit card numbers I was again a bit put off. I certainly appreciated the heads up but that was a bit strange. Then the room I was given had the double strike of the elevator and the ice machine about 10 feet away from my door. I heard ice clinking all night. The coffee maker took a half hour to brew a small pot of coffee and no replacement came when I left a note for housekeeping. My heat wasn't on in the room when I arrived and it was freezing so when I left the next morning, I left the heater on. I was pleasantly welcomed with a nice warm room when I returned that night but the window was left wide open by hotel staff for some reason. With the window open, I heard 3 "arguements" by people in the parking lot. in addition, the heater in the room was the "old" radiator type that is super loud. Overall, even though I got a great rate, I won't go back. Too many things raised a red flag with me and it wasn't a comfortable 2 night stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for the money"
Hotel was clean and priced right, the breakfast was good and the staff was nice and helpful. Easy on and off the freeway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed three nights. Overall I would recommend this hotel. The only problem is that while we were staying, they were replacing carpeting in the halls. It was a bit noisy when hammering in tack strips in front of our door. The side entrance door was not secured (the outside was being remodeled and the door locking mechanism wasn't working). The maid […] didn't replace used towels or make up our bed on one day and we ran out of kleenex. I would stay here again, but hope some of the deficiencies above would be overcome by then. Rates were reasonable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We wanted a room close to the Tacoma Dome with a pool. Quite pleased with experience all in all. Delighted when we realized the pool was salt water instead of clorine. Lots of choices for breakfast. Enjoyed our stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"No real complaints......"
It was just Ok.. But the Comfort Inn just a half a block down was better!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Lots of traffic noise from the freeway. The room heater works well, but is really loud so you can't keep it on at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect For Pacific Lutheran University Visits"
The front desk gals are always the best. Third stay at the Red Lion...and it won't be the last.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
no complaints, we travel a lot and would stay here again in the future if the price is right.Genuine Expedia guest review
In the morning following the visit I noted 3 car that had their windows broken out the night.before. luckily my car was not one of them. Lot was far from full and I question the level of security at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was great and will try to stay agarin. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not within walking of good fun"
This is great location and easy to get to and from but which that the neighbor hood had better food within walking distance. The bar across the street is not too friendly to travelers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"centrally located for Christmas shopping"
A comfortable room with enough chairs for both to relax. Even the heavy winds didn't bother our sleeping. The bathroom could have been a little bigger. We would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for the money"
The hotel staff were excellant. The hotel itself seemed a little dated, and worn. Otherwise, it was a good value.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quick on and off of I-5"
Was a little worried when I arrived on a Sunday evening and there were almost no cars in the parking lot. Was assured it would be busier on Monday and it was..whew! Hotel room was more modern than the hall and in decent shape. Older facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for family and business"
It was a geat stay for the most party. Breakfast started at a normal time but ended early each day at 9am. When we went down to breakfast at 8:30 most everything was gone already. The pool is nice. A little cold, but nice. The heating/ac unit in the room was noisy but worked just fine. All in all, a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay in Tacoma"
I would not recommend to this place to anyone and would not stay in Tacoma again. The toilet would not work, the bathroom fan made an annoying sound when it was on, the room was dirty, the TV is dated and had horrible reception and the location of where this hotel is is very scetchy. The continental breakfast was subpar and the place is under contruction […] which I was not aware of untill I arrived. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not safe place to stay"
Carpets were stained in the hallway and in the room. Night front desk allowed homeless teens to charge their phones in the lobby and when coming and going from the front door they would hit you up for a cigarette or try and sell you electronics. Breakfast at other Red Lions in a full on breakfast were as here it is your cold cereal and waffles with […] fruit. At breakfast in the morning so of these people were in loading up on food and walking out of the hotel. In the morning I watched from the room window a couple park a van and then remove a wire from the driver’s side window as if they stole the van. When they could not get into the side door because they were not guessed they drove away. They too were at breakfast. Not a good place to stay especially with a family.

"access to major freeways and mall"
Biggest problem for us was the very loud fan on the heating unit. Could adjust for more or less heat/cool but not the level of the fan. It kept both my daughter and I awake most of the night. We were there for a college visit the next day. The continental breakfast was less than average also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It suited our need to be fairly close to downtown but not as expensive as those hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"in town for Bieber"
Stay was fine, nice hotel and staff. I think they may have been a little understaffed for the concert, and ran out of food in the morning at breakfast. Location was easy to find and close to the freeway, so getting back on the road was easy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overeall a good hotel, but maybe just needs a little more cleaning time on the little things. By the garbage can in my room, there seemed to have been a coffee on the wall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was a nice stay. However the bath tub in my room didn't drain the water very well. I would be standing in ankle deep water while showering, not a fan. Also the club across the street was rather noisy at night, which want very ideal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a great time in your hotel! The staff was very kind and helpful. Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Accomodating Our Concerns Early!"
When we went to our assigned room, we noticed the door next to ours propped open. Inside were several young adults engaged in lively conversation. We anticipated this might be a problem for us later while we tried to sleep. We went right back down to the desk and we were promptly given another room on another floor. No problem at all. As it turned out, […] they were a team of Cross Country runners who probably went to bed early themselves. They may have been perfectly quiet all night, but we didn't have to worry. The breakfast was also nice. We saw that pets were welcome, so we would consider that when we travel with our dogs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Clean updated hotel. Rooms comfortable. We would stay there again. Lots of free parking spaces. Easy to find off the freeway. Got early check in, can't say that when I called to ask for early check in the front desk person was very accommodating. Had to press the issue. Asked to move room away from the noisy freeway side, and they gladly moved us. Free […] breakfast, but just breads and cereals, no eggs. Other than that it was great.

"Great hotel for the price"
Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room. I just wish the pool had been open later.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Desk staff was friendly, but the continental breakfast was very limited and not refilled very quickly. The maids didn't replace all of the towels when requested - we didn't have any hand towels or washcloths. We were treated rudly be a photographer that was apparently taping the hotel for a commercial.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us a nice list of several places nearby to eat and allowed us to check in early because we had just left the hospital with our daughter following day surgery. I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I usually like Red Lion, but there were a few things about this hotel that bugged me. First, the curtains. Hotels need to have blackout curtains that go all the way closed. Having only sheers does not work. People can see in at night when guests have the lights on, and you get blasted with sun in the morning before you really want to wake up. The spigot […] in the bathroom was set to spray. Hated that. Took forever to fill the coffee pot, which wasn't especially large. Surrounding neighborhood was terrible. Cars without mufflers and/or blasting music kept me up half the night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not what i expected for the price and a red lion!"
my door would not shut on it's own had to push it shut, hot tub out of order, stairs door had to rip at it to open, tv volume goes up and down in increaments of 4 not 1, waffle maker stuck so bad a didnt even bother smallest elevator i have ever seen literally.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tacoma Red Lion"
The staff was very friendly and it was conveniently located. However it is old and in a shady neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel's breakfast should last one more hour longer on weekend mornings. Closing it down at 9 am, is too early. There were many many people just getting down to the lobby and it was closed. Also if it is a handicapped room, the shower should have a hand held shower head so a person can use the shower chair and control the shower head instead of just […] sitting under the standard shower head. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It's close to Tacoma but it's on the freeway. It's across from a club where the cops come every night to bust up fights, they were blaring their sirens at 2am every night consistently. The room amenities were worn, and light shone through the blinds right at 6am. I'm glad I got a deal on the hotel, if I didn't it wouldn't be worth the price. My wifi […] didn'w work in my room either, and the TV channels either didn't have sound or came in scrambled. The hotel needs updating, but it's not bad if you're just looking to stay and do stuff during the day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Close to all the places I wanted to go. Older hotel- some upgrades. Nice indoor pool and jacuzzi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Tacoma Hotel"
Close to the Freeway in not such a nice neighborhood. Well lighted parking lot. The first day we were skipped by maid service and when we told the front desk they said" Ah Oh, we will make sure they get you cleaned up tomorrow" Other then that, the room was pretty nice, good size, refrigarator, microwave, internet access, and the beds were soft and […] comfy.

The hotel was extremely dirty the sheets had stains on them. The hotel was very load with acouple of partys going on. The noise from the freeway was horrible. The window blinds were broken.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was nice, but carpets throughout needed cleaning. Our room was a non-smoking and still smelled like smoke. I mentioned that at the front desk and they did do something to help with that. There was some mold on the wallpaper in the bathroom. The breakfast was nice, but they need someone organized to see that they don't run out of supplies. First […] morning they had waffles but no syrup. It was very busy and they could definitely use two people to help with the breakfast and wipe down tables. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Helpful staff. A lot of noise/ foot traffic because of our close proximity to the pool. Overall, reasonable place for reasonable feeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent older hotel"
I stayed here recently during a home remodel situation. So I am familiar with the location, and fully understand that this is the best option in that particular location. The good: The front desk staff are fabulous. The in-between: The rooms are decent, the bathrooms incredibly small however, but functional if you're staying by yourself. The bad: […] I read all the reviews before I booked, and figured that if one of the frustrating things that happened to others happened to me, it would be fine. However: the bathtub drain didn't work to take a bath (talked to the front desk and the next day there was a pastic stopper in the bathroom), someone (I assume kids) filled the hot tub with bubbles that were very high, over flowing and just simply a mess, the towels aren't very soft, the bedsheets are scratchy, the bed while soft, doesn't provide for a restful nights sleep, or that could've been the fact that the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything going on around you, including people running up and down the halls, talking loudly outside the building, and even the bar across the busy street. The tv in the room had very bad reception and most channels were fuzzy, The carpets were dirty (but I'm sure that's because it was old), And the wi-fi is spotty and slow. Overall - it's a decent convenient place to stay for a short period of time if you're not looking for the amenities. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
