"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
It was the best hotel we foundget on the way back while on our vacation. The pool was small but it was enclosed so that made it nice and it was a pet friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly and helpful staff. For an older, renovated hotel, it was quite nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good hotel for the price."
The Hotel was very nice and the staff was very helpful. I really enjoyed the free breakfasts in the morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Ft. Lewis"
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
Property is just too old and worn out for me to stay here again. My room had a old stinky odor. Staff was very nice. Room was old and stinky. Two thumbs down!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The services and quality were matched to the price. I was very disappointed with the internet WiFI connectivity. Eventually got the service (Matrix) to talk to hotel staff to reset equipment and afterwards was much better. I'd recommend the hotel staff be trained and routinely check the quailty of the WIFI throughout the hotel and how to reset the hardware. […] It's been a recurring problem and it's not obvious its being addressed. It wasted 2 to 3 hours of my time where the service was advertised as free and readily available.

"not worth the money"
the sheets were dirty, it was way more money then it should have been, the breakfast area was a 12x12 space for all those rooms. It was so crowded, no place to sit and the long line made it too difficult to get the "continental" breakfast, once I got to the coffee it was gone and the service was rude. I would not stay at this hotel again. The bed however, […] was comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"old hotel with a new name"
I had high expectaions for this hotel. I had stayed at the surrounding hotels in the past, and the price of this hotel was much more then them. The room was very comfortable. the noise in the hall ways throughout the night and the constant commotion outside the room made for a very unrestful sleep no matter how comfy the bed was. pool was cool by comparison […] for an indoor pool and the hot tub made no bubbles. just a big bath tub. and with a hotel full of guests the mad dash for the tiny breakfast area made us go elswhere.

When I made reservations I was told we would have a smoking room. Even called them back to verify this (hotels.com). When we checked in the hotel is all non smoking this was a huge disapointment to me.. The room was very nice for the price. The carpeting between the beds had pink stains on it that should have been cleaned. Beds were a little soft which […] was OK for me. Good location. Overall the hotel was exceptional for the price.

"Red Lion Hotel Tacoma - Hosmer"
Was an enjoyable stay. Room was clean, though the linens were a bit outdated. They use DirectTV for cable, and some channels were not available due to a contract dispute (i.e., Fox) which means you might not get to watch your favorite evening shows. That was a bummer for our kids. The staff was friendly. The pool and big hot tub was great, too. Enjoyed […] the continental breakfast. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Best bang for your buck. Comfy beds, great pool for the kids, bfast was nothing to right home about, waffles, yogurt, toast, juice, cold cereal. Great place to stop with kids. Asked for ajoining rooms for family of 8, ended up across hall.... not the most convenient with small children.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy To find!"
Hotel was easy to find right off I-5 tons of food choices near by and Tacoma Mall is just across the Hwy from Hotel. Pool & Hot Tub was a great treat as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
As a single parent, traveling with several children, I was thankful for the family-friendly ammenities that this hotel offered. We especially enjoyed the indoor pool, which was open until 10:00 at night, and the convenience of having breakfast provided for us in the lobby. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel in Tacoma Washington"
Your (Red Lion)customer service was the worst that I have ever dealt with. I wanted to stay one more night and both the customer service and Tacoma hotel never understood that all I wanted was to extend my stay one night. All they could say is that they could not refund my money, which is not what I wanted to do I just wanted to stay one more night. […] Apparently they did not want my business. So I went to another hotel. i will never stay at another Red Lion hotel, and I travel alot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Weird smells in different places. Get what you pay for but I will try something else in the same price range next time. "Fitness Center" a complete joke and a lawsuit waiting to happen in case any hotel personnel read these. Wasn't completely disgusted, but unlikely to return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
