This is an average hotel inside a casino. The rooms are comfortable, the linen was clean and the staff is ok to deal with. It is not fabulous or terrible, simply OK. We stay there because we are both smokers and it is nice not to have to trek outside during the Northwest Winter to smoke. There are several restaurants...

We stayed here as was suggested for a wedding we were attending in the grand ballroom a separate building. We walked in through a "smokie" casino to the front desk to check in. You also walk through the cigarette smoke to get to the non smoking game area and buffet! Our room was non smoking but reaked of cigarettes. Made...

Staff was unpleasant and very aggressive. Room was not cleaned well if at all. I think they are just money mongers who put no stock in the customers experience. No managers on site for hotel guests to speak to. Food in buffet was sub-par and overpriced. Shuttle service to venues in Tacoma site are inconvenient and not worth the unpredictable...

Been a year since we have stayed there. Food as great. But they need to do something with the smoke. Bigger smoke eatters. The reviews all say the same thing. To smokey. Time to update the rooms Non Smoking smells the same as smoking. To long of a wait for breakfast,always empty table but no help. Same as valet only...

Staff & Security were very rude.Never felt like a guest once. No one smiles, was yelled at for being in security's way. Probably the worse customer service from staff i have ever experienced. Will never stay here again, and don't suggest anyone who wants to be treated like an adult to either. You can make a crappy hotel nice, if...

There is a new expanded area for non-smoking which makes it much nicer. The smoking area has a low ceiling and is filled with smoke. Just walking through area leaves your clothes smelling. The non-smoking area is clean and fresh and has great service and people working there. The machines are good and free soda, coffee and tea is provided...

We have been here a couple of times with fiends. Breakfast and lunch - both were really good. Today I had the club sandwich - it was really good. Next time I will get fries - the potato salad wasn't that great... Good variety of food. Good friendly and fast service. Nice place.

Although the staff was nice and the hotel room itself was fine--comfortable bed, double sinks, ample plugs for hairdryer, reasonable price--those benefits could never outweigh the fact that our nonsmoking room stank of cigarette smoke, as did the whole hotel. It is also in a rather grungy part of Tacoma, so there are few nice restaurants and shops nearby. We...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 1 night to see a nearby concert. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, you could not go anywhere that didn't smell like smoke. My girlfriend has allergies, so this was quite inconvenient for her. We both woke up feeling very congested from the smoke. The buffet dinner was very good and...

For all of the commercials and advertising for this casino, I was surprised how run down and "old" it seemed. Of the casinos in WA I have been to, this was the worst ventilation I have encountered. There was a lot of security which is a good thing, but I think it is an indication of problems. We saw numerous...
