Seriously, rated near the top in Cle Elum? Lets be honest - I offer a more balanced view: I get it. This is a budget hotel offering basic accommodations. But this room was disappointing: Not clean, bathroom grungy. Add noisy air conditioner stuck on one setting, very poorly lit, bulbs burnt out, threadbare towels and sheets, flimsy curtain not fully... More

Mike (on-site manager) was quite possibly the most friendly, kind and accommodating customer service provider of any hotel/motel I've stayed at. Though the price seemed relatively high for a motel of it's quality ($125+), I acknowledge this was because it was a busy, no-vacancy, wedding weekend. My girlfriend and I arrived late after a wedding (1030pm) without any vehicle, knowledge... More

The man at the front desk was the nicest guy ever! He welcomed us to cle Elum as we were on our way home. We even shared a special moment where he held a prayer for my little brother in seattle childrens hospital. Thank you soo much. We appreciate you very much.

For a lone traveler an overnight stay at the Chalet Motel is like being welcomed as Michaels house guest. The room was clean neat simple with the necessary amenities especially a comfortable bed. No stale smells. No frills but the friendly host added great value to the good price.

The friendly and efficient proprietor was highly motivated to make my stay comfortable. I was impressed by the high standard of service. The room was very spacious, clean, and quiet. The bed was great. The TV, microwave, refrigerator and air-conditioner worked well. I would stay here again. I recommend highly.

My daughter and I were in a bind when we came across zero hotel vacancies in Ellensberg this past weekend due to a Jazz festival. We decided to try our luck in Cle Elum and to our relief and thankfulness, we secured a room over the phone for a great price! The owner, Michael was very warm and friendly, and... More

Two other motels were sold out and I was referred to the Chalet Motel. I don't like to stay in motels that open from the outside, but the Desk Clerk/Owner was very welcoming and congenial, making me feel comfortable to stay in such a place.
