The hotel is a class act but so are other hotels. What makes it stand out is Peg, the breakfast lady! The breakfast is hotel decided but Peg adds her charm and knowledge and care and greeting and humor and info to start every day. We stayed for 10 days and learned so much about Ellensburg from Peg. We were... More

Front desk clerk didn't have quarters for the laundry machines and wasn't sure what floor they were on. He did go across the street and get quarters for me to use. Machines were $2.50 to wash and $2.75 to dry. Wow, expensive laundry for a pair of jeans! The heater in the room was so noisy that we entered up... More

Yes, we definitely dropped the ball on change - I came in Sunday to get it corrected, but by then obviously we were too late. I stand by our reputation as the best hotel in Ellensburg, but we definitely should have been more prepared for that. I'm sorry about that, but I'm glad our staff was able to round up... More

I must say that the front desk staff are exceptional. We were directed to an italian place downtown to eat and the food was fabulous. Nice quiet place to stay after a concert. If you are in town on Saturday the downtown market is fun.

I'm glad we were able to steer you in the right direction for dinner. My guess was that we sent you to The Pasta Company, which is definitely a staff favorite. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again! Matt Anderson General Manager More

Our stay from the beginning to end was fabulous! We will definitely book here again. Maria was the manager on duty when we arrived and checked out. She was warm, friendly and knowledgeable!! The rest of the staff was also very helpful. The lobby, lounge and rooms were all exceptionally clean and inviting. Thanks for warmly welcoming our cats -... More

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a Tripadvisor review. We appreciate the kind words and work hard at what we do. Having "pet-friendly" rooms is one small part of creating Great Hotels that Guests Love. Thanks again, Matt Anderson General Manager More

Our car broke down heading home for our holiday visit. We stayed for the night to wait for our car and they gave us free water and were very compassionate considering we were so frustrated with what happened. They even gave us free coffee cards to Starbucks because we had to wait an hour for the only can service in... More

I would like to compliment "Donovan", he is super! He checked us in after a very long and tiring trip. We were tired and needing a place to stay and get some restful sleep. I told him I was a light sleeper, so he put us in a corner room on the top floor and even brought up a fan... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable. I really like that they are serious about not smoking, explaining that you will be charged an additional $150 if you smoke in your room. Therefore, the room did not smell like smoke at all, which is sometimes a real problem. I was also impressed they had five electric car charging stations! Marie was... More

Stayed for one night enroute from Canada to California. The reception clerk, Alan, was very efficient and friendly. Parking was ample ( we were towing a trailer) and convenient.
