A real dive off the freeway.

Posted 16-Aug-2016
Pros: The staff were friendly enough, but seemed as though they did not have much to work with. This location needs to undergo serious renovation.
Cons: Beds, the breakfast area, a couple more staff to help attend guests in the morning and provide security, rooms need new paint and carpet. Better TV.
Location: There is nothing to do nearby. It is dirty and feels un-safe. You are better off staying in the larger cities of Tacoma, Federal Way and Lakewood.
Location: Terrible, noisy, dirty and right across the street from a big Casino. Did not feel safe. Walls were thin, and you can hear just about anything coming through them. No visible security cams for parking lot. Tried to get some soup at a nearby restaurant only to discover the place being checked out by the police. Gives you an idea of the neighborhood. Room: Room was a bit dirty and much smaller than shown in picture. Was told we would receive a queen size bed with the room upon reservation. Was given a full size bed instead, which was incredibly hard and uncomfortable. Amenities: Was supposed to have a continental breakfast provided. Pictures showed a nice dining room, fruit waffle machine juice, assortment of cold cereals etc. Juice machines were broken, counters were dirty, no one was re-stocking the mini fridge. Was lucky to get one waffle and an egg. Entertainment: TV channels included: Sports, XXX rated material and news. Nothing else that you don't pay for. There are no other sources of recreation nearby unless you count the casino. There are "shopping" strips nearby with a few hole in the wall restaurants scattered between them. If you want to go to a movie or do real shopping, you will need to go into the nearby city of Federal Way, Tacoma or Lakewood, 15-20 minutes away.

Fine for an overnight stay

Posted 10-Aug-2016
Pros: I was attending a seminar so I was gone most of the day. I just needed to sleep there and for that, it was fine.
Cons: Better towels. Talk about threadbare
The room is certainly fine for an overnight stay. It is located on a main thoroughfare so a bit noisy, but then again, it had easy access to the freeway and lots of shops nearby. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

One step up from being a seedy motel

Posted 09-Aug-2016
Pros: Seriously, not much
Cons: Overall maintenance and cleanliness. Since the breakfast area is so small, they need to have extended breakfast hours and not end it at 9:00am.
Location: Wild Waves and Casinos
I trusted the Days Inn brand when I booked this for me and my two kids but I won't make that mistake again. This hotel was a bit scary. There was no door sweep on our door and we could see straight out to the sidewalk. The curtains would not close completely, but luckily, I had a clip to clip them closed. Only 2 of 4 light bulbs were working. The inside of the bathroom door looked like an animal tried to claw or eat it's way out. The caulking in the tub was coming off and was black with mildew. We were in a non-smoking room that smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The breakfast area is super small and there was not enough room for guests to sit and eat and with one waffle maker, we had to wait about 20 minutes for one family to finish making waffles. The front desk clerks were polite but did not look happy to be working. The morning clerk did work hard to cover the front desk and maintain the breakfast area.

Cons: safety
we reserved NON-SMOKING room, however we were first booked into a room that smelled like an ashtray and the smoke-detector was removed(wiring dangling out of fixture)-we complained and were given another room. Guess what! The battery was removed in 2nd room from smoke detector!!! I told three different desk managers-finally on third day battery was reinstalled. I work as an electrical inspector and life safety is a concern...I am not pleased to take a mini -vacation and find I needed to complain about something I normally shouldn't have to worry about...what about other tenants or other rooms-I was in only two rooms and both had safety problems that were not addressed before being occupied--- From now on I will be leary of staying at this hotel/motel chain...

I'll pass by this place on my next visit.

Posted 02-Aug-2016
The pictures of the breakfast area is totally false. The hotel is in need of a major renovation. The bed sheets were stained, the room hadn't been professionally cleaned throughout in years, and we found that our room didn't even have a "privacy" sign to hang on the door. The staff try to smile their way through the noticeable flaws of their work environment, but can not supply artificial sweetener during without going to a back room to rip one out of the coffee packs that they supply for the rooms. They really try to do their best for a dilapidated hotel. Next time I need to travel to Tacoma... I'll pass on this place without hesitation!

Smelly room and bad neighbordhood

Posted 18-Jun-2016
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything.
Location: Horrible location stay away from Fife.
Would not stay in this hotel again. Room had holes everywhere, someone punched the bathroom door and was partially broken, staff was ok but the location is just horrible. We were worried about our stuff being stolen and decided to leave the hotel. Would definitely NOT recommend for families to stay there.

Comfortable and reasonable hotel that we felt safe and liked the continental breakfast.
