“"Slight reservation about the location..."”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This is a well-managed Hampton Inn property. The front desk staff is very welcoming. The lobby area is open and warm. I received a room upgrade without asking when I checked in and the corner room was spacious, clean, and the furnishings were contemporary. It was very easy to get work done in my room as the desk and lighting were perfect.

I like the fact that, in the evening in the lobby, there's a pitcher of milk to go along with the free cookies. It's a little touch of home. The property is within easy access of I-5 and there are chain restaurants and some big box stores near-by, though I didn't discover them until the morning since I had arrived at the hotel very late at night. And therein lies the only reservation I have about the hotel's location. The parking lot was well-lit, but I did feel just a tad uncomfortable walking from the back end of the lot to the front entrance of the hotel in the late evening. However, I will say that I lived in Tacoma many years ago and I felt this way about most of the city even back then. Nonetheless, Tacoma is a great town with many unique places to visit including the Musuem of Glass downtown and the waterfront. And, when you do come to Tacoma, and particularly if you're a Hilton HHonors member, I would heartily encourage you to stay at the Hampton Inn.

I want to say I love the staff at this little hotel. The very pleasant receptionist, the great maintenance staff... and I love the rooms. Light, airy, comfortable. It is the only Hilton Property in Tacoma, which says more about Tacoma than Hilton. ;-) Hampton is supposed to be the lowest rung on the Hilton Ladder, but my room here is better than my recent stays at Doubletree or Hilton. The exercise Center is good, the business center is free. What's not to love?

Room Tip: I would pay a couple dollars more for the King Suite, or ask for an upgrade...

I stayed at this great hotel during my trip to Seattle. It was a great stay, good staff an the rooms were nice an quite an very clean. I had a good night sleep an was rested the next day to continue the drive up to our destination. I will definitely come back when I'm in the area.

The cleanest, best place to stay in Tacoma. Easy access to I-5. Numerous restaurants nearby. Good security for vehicles. Staff is very helpful with restaurant suggestions and other local advice. I have stayed here 3 times now, and it is consistently excellent.

The only thing that could be better is the breakfast food, in particular the oatmeal (runny), scrambled "eggs" (more like curds). But the fresh fruit was great, and there was a nice assortment of muffins, bagels, and other choices. Not a reason to not stay here. Coffee is excellent and always available. Great free cookies at night.

Rooms were in nice shape, had a desk to work at, the shower pressure was great. Fire alarm went off in middle of the night when heater kicked on, for I guess the first time this year, and the dust on the heater started to burn.

This has become one of my favorite hotels to stay at in the Lakewood - Tacoma area. The staff are consistently cheerful and welcoming, the coffee is great, the beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet. Fairly easy access to quiet neighborhood streets for early morning jogs, and Value Village is next door if you enjoy thrift shopping. Check out is always a breeze too.
