This is a great place to stay in Tacoma. The location was close enough to walk to some places and an easy drive to others. Our room had a jacuzzi, which we loved and even a step stool to get onto the bed. The decor is great, pretty with a hint of quirky. Breakfast was very good as well

My husband and I stayed here after a long search for somewhere affordable and low-scent near Seattle. I have allergies to perfumes and chemicals, and the owners were very aware of these concerns. They also catered to my food allergies with the best breakfast I've ever been served! Kudos to the cook - he's a real gourmet! We loved our...

This is my third stay at the Chinaberry. I am enchanted by this B & B, the careful collection of beautiful furnishings and eclectic objects, the perfectly curated music mix from Cecil's ipod playing in the downstairs rooms, the ridiculously sumptuous and delicious breakfasts. The coffee is perfect, the rooms, even the big rooms, feel cozy. There's a well-stocked cookie...

Our stay at the china hill was an absolutely wonderful experience. To find such a gem in Tacoma was a wonderful surprise. Cecil is a superb host, the breakfasts were delicious with enormous portions. The room was a charming visit to the past and the antiques were. To die for! We have stayed at many B and Bs over the...

Stayed here (in the 3rd floor suite) with our two adult children. The beds were oh-so-comfortable and the whole place was cozy and comfy. It was nice to have a space for the whole family to hang out together....the suite included a living room and a kitchen. The hosts are accommodating and gracious. It's not "plush" or "fancy", but it...

Spent 2 nights here for a December getaway, and absolutely loved the environment. The house is stunning, with a view of the water and enormously high ceilings, beautiful dark woodwork, and common areas furnished with with unique items. We enjoyed our upstairs rooms in the carriage house - quirky but comfortable. Yarrow's breakfasts were delicious, and big enough that we...

Cecil and Yarrow make you feel at home at the Chinaberry Inn. On my arrival date, I received a phone call from Cecil stating that he had to leave and would not be there when I arrived. He left very clear instructions as to where I would find my instructions and keys. Everything was exactly where he told me they...

We have been to a number of B&Bs in Washington and have never been as disappointed as we were during our stay at Chinaberry Hill B&B. The clawfoot tub in our unit was covered in brown soap scum and filth. We were shocked at their complete lack of attention to cleanliness. Moreover we had discussed dietary restrictions with them prior...

From the moment we arrived both the home and Cecil were inviting and unique! An ever full cookie jar and wireless internet are some of the details that all but guaranteed a perfect stay.
