This is a good solid HIE. Exactly what you’d expect. Nothing over the top, but nothing wrong with our stay either. Front desk was friendly and courteous, a few fresh cookies in the evening were yummy and breakfast gave us a good start. We came to see friends and a CWU football game and got a good nights rest here.

This is your typical Holiday Inn Express. The location was fine, though a bit of a drive to downtown and the fairgrounds. The pool was rather cold and i was suspect on how often it is cleaned and chemicaled. The hot tub was scalding but a nice offset to the polar pool. The staff was friendly, when you saw them....

We patronize HIEs for about 2/3 of our travel stays. This property is definitely better maintained than many, and possibly the best place to stay in Ellensburg. It's a newer building, although the furnishings are already starting to show some hard use by less than considerate guests. As for special amenities, the approx. seven foot high shower heads are great... More

I've stayed at several hotels in this area and the Holiday Inn in Ellensburg is amazing. The hotel is like brand new and the rooms are both clean and comfotable. I enjoyed the nice pool and hot tub. The front desk staff were very polite. They had cookies baked which were actually really good. I had forgotten my toothbrush and... More

We have been staying at the Ellensburg Holiday Inn Express for six years now! The rooms are clean and comfortable- its our home away from home! Our girls have been going to CWU so we visit a lot! They have always been very helpful to our family! We would recommend them to anyone! The Dunleavy's

My husband and I arrived in town early, at 1:30, and although check in wasn’t until 3 p.m. we thought we would stop by the hotel to see if there were any rooms available yet. If not, we would go get lunch and come back at 3 p.m. for regular check in. The woman at the front desk told us... More

This was overall a very nice and clean motel, but broken hair dryer in our room, hot tub was not working, and the pancake maker for breakfast was not working. Only 4 towels in the bathroom when it was reserved for 6 people. Nice to be in walking distance to some restaurants.

Although this was a business trip, I found myself really enjoying my short stay at this Holiday Inn Express. After a nail biting driving across the snow-covered Snoqualmie Pass from Western Washington, it was a pleasure to receive a warm greeting from the front desk staff. When I made it to my room, I found it to be comfortable, inviting,... More

Brittany has taken care of us in multiple ways today. Answered lots of questions. Made arrangements for our stay for 7 days in Seattle, WA. Made sure our laundry was dried even though the guest clothes dryer was not working. We are extremely proud or what she has done and how she has represented your hotel. James & Connie Vinton...

We stayed one night as we traveled through the area. Everything was very pleasant. Holiday Inn Express has a great selection for breakfast that made everyone happy. We had a room on the top floor in the back of the building and it was very quiet! The room overlooks an open field and a nearby irrigation ditch lined with tall... More
