The Silver Cloud on Ruston Way is in a very nice location on the waterfront in Tacoma. The Silver Cloud Inn at Point Ruston is a different location. We had a water view room, which was nice, but the bathroom was very small. Upon checking in on August 28th, there were 6-8 people talking to a check in clerk. None of the 6-8 people were wearing a face mask. There was a posted mask required on the front door for people to see. After the group left I asked about masks being required and about the group of 6-8 not wearing masks. I was told they were just asking questions or perhaps directions. Really, it takes that many people to ask questions? I told the clerk that shouldn’t make any difference that masks were required upon entering. Another response from clerk was “what can you do?” Meaning what can you do if people aren’t wearing masks. The responses I received about the group of 6-8 people not wearing masks were very unprofessional and not appropriate. It would have been very easy and safe for the clerk to offer the group facemasks. I left a review about what had happened, but I never heard back from the general manager. So… the masks mandate that was posted is not being enforced at this location, or at least it wasn’t on this occasion. Also, be aware there is a deposit required at checking in time. This is in addition to the cost of the room. I didn’t see this on their website. The deposit on August 28th was $50.00. In June or July when there was 100 degree plus weather we stayed at the same Silver Cloud Inn on Ruston Way and the same room type. The deposit then was $275.00!

This place is a little pricey but it was worth every penny. We got a corner jacuzzi suite and the view was spectacular over the water. The staff was super friendly and Ann in particular. There was an issue with our keys and she was very helpful and apologetic. She was even able to get us milk for the evening when we asked.

Family visiting from California. Checkin was early and room available. Room was clean and enjoyed viewing of sunset. Enjoyed watching ocean activities and wildlife. Took advantage of complimentary laundry after going to national parks. Loved the proximity to dukes seafood and enjoyed so much we went twice.breakfast was ok but appreciated. Would visit again since staying in Seattle is overrated

For my first visit to Tacoma, I wasn't sure where to stay, and was attracted to the Silver Cloud's location on the water. The room was comfortable, clean, everything in good working order. Staff were helpful and responsive. I didn't get to see all the facilities/amenities, and with COVID protocols, breakfast was all to-go, but better than other offerings I've seen in these circumstances. The elevator was out of order while I was there (2-night stay) - which didn't affect my stay on the first floor, but could be important for some visitors.

The room was disappointing, ugly decor and overlooked construction site with cranes. Train runs a lot. Advertised fireplace in room - Nooooo-was an led light display!!!!!!! Seriously! That’s false advertising. It was a 200 dollar room! Shameful

Dear Dreamer396189, Thank you for taking time to share your experience. I apologize if the construction site and cranes detracted from stunning views of Commencement Bay and the Tacoma Waterfront. Currently, Metro Parks Tacoma is working on improvements to Dickman-Mill Park. The cranes will soon be gone and the park will be open for all to enjoy. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and felt the design of our recently renovated guest rooms was not to your taste. While many of our guests rave about the ambiance of the electric fireplace, I can understand your confusion about how it is listed on our web site. Perhaps the photos of the electric fireplace on the web site would provide a more accurate description. Thank you again for your recent stay.
