“Pleasant stay, huge room”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

Shiloh Inn was willing and able to accommodate me at the last minute. I know this is a roll of the dice, but they were so great about it I remembered it. Rooms are huge, with separate areas for sleeping and a combined kitchen and sitting area. Very clean, quiet. Breakfast in the AM with good variety of cereals, fruit, waffles. Someone does need to teach the help how to make coffee though, it was brown water. Small workout room. Large pool area and open sitting area. Overall a thumbs up for a solid value for the price.

We were in Tacoma for a week visiting family. We checked in without any problems and asked for a room away from the freeway due to some comments here. We were accommodated and enjoyed are stay. We didn't spend much time in our room, we got up early and came back late. Our beds were comfortable, and the morning coffee was excellent. Room was clean and towels changed daily, sheets were not. Don't know if you have to ask that they be changed, just know that we didn't and they weren't. Odd, but OK. We will probably stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from freeway

The BEST thing about Shilo Inn is the wonderful customer service, year in and year out --always being served by the friendliest staff -- and who can ever forget JJ with her contagious laughter and witty humor! She's AWESOME, and between our stays, we sure do miss her!

Stepping foot into the Shilo Inn lobby is like entering your relative's home -- comfortable living room seating that is flanked on one side with those smiling faces behind the front desk (JJ, Amanda, Chelsea, etc) and on the other side, by numerous intimate tables where we enjoy our FREE daily breakfast of Belgian waffles, boiled egg, cereals, yogurts, bagels, pastries, fresh fruits, juices, tea, coffee, etc. -- so much more than a simple 'continental breakfast'! That's Shilo Inn! And while you're relaxing in the lobby, you can catch up with world news via TV or by utilizing the guest computer.

Comfortable and spacious rooms! When was the last time your hotel room was furnished with both a King AND Queen bed!?

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION! Shilo Inn-Tacoma is surrounded by eating establishments galore. Simply walk across the street for lunch or dinner: I-Hop, Olive Garden, StarBucks, AppleBees, Elmers, Dave's BarBQ, Dairy Queen, etc.

Then when you return 'home' to Shilo Inn and feel the need to exercise, you'll find just beyond the lobby, an inviting pool, fitness room, sauna, spa tub, steam room, waiting for you!!

The amenities are endless at Shilo Inn -- it truly is "home away from home"
A best-value hotel for sure -- you can't go wrong at Shilo Inn Tacoma!! It's #1 for us and we encourage you to enjoy it, too!

The Good; The front desk people are nice and helpful. The bed wasn't too bad either.

The Bad; Apparently, you don't want to drive here, because you will then have to park, and that leaves your vehicle to the abundance of Hosmer Street criminals to feast on! Two vehicles have had a smash and grab damage in the last 3 days. Even talking with the staff, this sort of thing happens quite a bit.

BUT if you don't drive here; The unsecured wireless internet works about 70% of the time, however I am on the 4th floor and distance is probably a factor. No DVD player. Whether you get hot water depends on when you shower as well. A buddy also said his air-conditioner, may as well have been a diesel engine.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else, like Holiday Inn or Red Lion.

We recently needed a home base in Tacoma while attending our daughter's graduation from PLU and touring the area for a 2 week vacation. We spent 5 nights at National Park locations, but returned to Shilo Inn for all of the days in between. The staff was all pleasant, but the front desk staff was especially friendly and VERY helpful. For example, we needed to change from a single room to a double room over one night to accommodate our out-of-town daughter for the gradution. JJ (who knew my name and always greeted me by it each morning) arranged for us to change to the room across the hall and assured us it would be fine to leave our belongings in the old room all day while we were out. Amanda at the evening desk fixed us up with the new keys and extended our old keys so we could easily walk our large bags across the hall. We were always met with smiles and felt comfortable and secure, in a neighborhood where some locations felt scary.
