Ensuring your comfort is our business

Hokold properties include four motels within Washington State, and a convention center. The motels' namesake is developer, Oscar Hokold. Son of an immigrant, and named for a Norwegian King and American President (Oscar 'Teddy' Hokold), Oscar grew up in Tacoma in the 1920's. During the Depression, Oscar lived in a tent while working as a logger and attending high school. This experience taught him the importance of thriftiness and hard work to achieve professional goals.

Throughout the 20th century, Oscar invested in and purchased land in the Tacoma area. Fond of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, he had a vision to provide its travelers and guests with safe, comfortable, and convenient amenities and service, while offering low prices on lodging. A true entrepreneur, his drive to offer guests a uniquely "royal" experience has led to the immense success of the King Oscar Motels and the Tacoma Convention Center.

King Oscar Motels has a love and respect for our country's military personnel and applaud the heroic efforts of our men and women of our armed forces.

People can have a quality experience at an attractive price. King Oscar proves that time and again.
