Holiday Inn Express is my home away from home when I'm on business or a weekend away. Comfortable, Friendly and Polite from the minute Dave acknowledges me at the door to the breakfast Lisa fixes every morning. I find the rooms clean and the staff willing to accomadate. Holiday Inn Express has always been flexible for my flex-schedule in Ellensburg,... More

This was our second trip to this Holiday Inn and once again, the staff was friendly and very professional. Our daughter plans to attend college in the area so we wanted to get a feel for the city. Our second trip was to get her settled into her new apartment and school. The facility was clean and up to date.... More

The Holiday Inn Express was a great place to stay. The room was immaculate. The air conditioning worked and created a pleasant environment. The room had a mini-refrigerator and a microwave. There were quality towels and amenities in the bathroom. The breakfasst was outstanding, including the pancake maker, cinnamon rolls, omelettes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, juices, assorted breads, and coffee.... More

For its star rating, this hotel is appropriately comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I did not experience any glitches. So, while I would not rave about it and recommend it for your special vacation, if you are traveling and need a comfortable and clean place to stay in Ellensburg, I would not hesitate to recommend the...

I hadnt used HI Express before, and this little hotel was a terrific surprise. Front desk staff were ridiculously warm and helpful, room and furniture and bath all looked newly redone and in excellent condition. Request a creek-side room! TERRIFICALLY QUIET and private, shaded view of the creek and across the hayfields through the tall windbreak trees. You would never... More

I am always pleased to stay at a holiday inn express, this one did not disappoint me. A smiling face and friendly service made hours of harduous driving vanish. The room was beautiful and already cooled. As a priority club member, I had a cold water bottle, peanuts and pop corn graciously offered. Cookies would be served at seven pm.... More

comfy and clean. Really nice beds and bedding. Nice lobby and pool. Free breakfast in the morning was lackluster but aren't all free breakfasts? It more than met our needs. Location is set back off Main Street and we had a room at the back of the hotel that overlooked a field-so very quiet. Room 208!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ellensburg Holiday Inn Express recently. The rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfast is good and the kids loved the pool.
