Nice Hotel, Not So Great Room

Posted 13-Oct-2013
Pros: The hotel was very clean, the personnel were nice, the bed was very comfortable.
Cons: It would be nice if the manager worked during high volume times, usually Friday through Sunday.
Unfortunately, the hotel had recently installed security lights in their parking lot and, according to the front desk, had installed black out drapes in the rooms facing the lights. Apparently they missed our room. And they couldn't seem to find us a replacement room. The light was blinding. We finally ended up solving the problem ourselves by taking the dark brown bed runner and throwing it over the curtain rod holding the lightweight curtains to block the light and that worked pretty good. We couldn't speak to a manager, she didn't work weekends, and we were given a 30% discount on our next room upon checkout which is worthless because there will be no next room, we won't stay there again. I am asking the manager via email to comp the room. Another problem we had was the heater was so loud, every time it kicked on, it woke us up. We finally had to turn it off.

A hotel with easy access to the primary freeways

Posted 7-Oct-2013
Of the limited time I spent at the hotel I found the staff dedicated to the comfort and needs of the guests. I found it refreshing to have complimentary hot coffee available 24 hours a day. The complimentary breakfast was adequate and allowed for my saving significant time each moring.

Will repeat if in the Tacoma area

Posted 16-Aug-2013
Red Lion Tacoma is strategically located for folks heading for McChord AFB; lots of service personnel staying in the hotel; felt right at home being a military retiree and current DoD civilian in the hunt for a retirement community. Red Lion hotels are reasonable and accommodations are well above average - comfortable beds, lots of hot water, everything is clean, free wifi, refrigerator and microwave in the room, continental breakfast: what's not to like? I joined their membership club and will seek out Red Lion hotels at future destinations; really, I'm not getting paid to say that. We also stayed in the Red Lion at Port Angeles, WA and it was just as good as Tacoma, except there was no continental breakfast :-(

The staff were friendly & helpful. Check in was quick & efficient. Other than a small issues with our key cards not working, we enjoyed this hotel & will return again.

Great hotel for anyone with good taste

Posted 27-May-2013
Pros: I loved how clean and nice the rooms were
Cons: Only thing I didn't like about the room was the light switches were out side and I would often forget and have to open the door and turn them on.
Location: The location was ok and I like that they only allow cars with hotel permits to park there makes you feel comfortable.
The Red Lion in Tacoma was amazing!! Friendly staff and great up keep:-) can't wait to go back
