We got this reservation through Hotwire and were glad this was the final selection since I had read the reviews. We were there for the music competition weekend, so housing was difficult to find. This worked out great. Friendly staff, very nice breakfast, and comfortable room.

Okay.... Lots of poor hotel reviews in Ellensburg but you can also pay a lot for more if that is what you want. If you are on a budget, this will be fine.

if you dont want to spend over $100 this is the place to stay in Ellensburg, the staff is really nice and the room although basic is very clean, quiet and has been updated. As a woman travelling alone one major concern when staying at a motel is safety and I felt very safe here. The breakfast was good, they... More

Checked in after long days drive. Friendly service, clean room overlooking a small lake. Good complimentary breakfast! I'll come here again!

Ideal for an overnight stay, moderately priced and good value. I would stay there again if I ever revisit Ellensburg.

The rooms had two beds but there was space for only one. Tight quarters to say the least. It was clean, staff was friendly, but the advertised prices are a joke. We inquired about the $79 rooms and found that since there was a lot of activity in town we got to pay $135 for our space. At $79 I'd... More

Your basic 60's-70's era cheap motel. For the money, there are certainly better options in town (Days Inn, Comfort Inn and others aren't much more expensive). I've stayed here twice--the last time the in-room phone didn't work, the breakfast bar was immediately picked over and wasn't restocked, no coffee in the rooms, etc. Basically, I stay here when there aren't...

We are done with phase one MAJOR renovations which consist of Lobby Makeover, Expanding Breakfast Area by adding seating and more breakfast choices, and we have replaced all guestrooms with NEW Furniture. We will continue to make minor renovations through the year but with little distraction to guests and lobby. We appreciate all the business and patience we have received... More

This hotel is being "revamped" and upgrades that are still in progress will be nice improvements. Our room was basically clean. I did see some small amount of debris on carpet in less accessable areas but all other areas were very clean. Breakfast bar is improving with waffles, toasters. Coffee is not too great but there are 2 Starbucks in... More

They're working to make this a decent place to stay for a night or two. We stayed in a king-sized non-smoking room that was lakeside. The room had what we needed, but the towels were very scratchy and the didn't provide any shampoo or lotion...just small bars of very cheap soap. We also found the room to be quite small... More
