We stayed in a double queen room for two days. The room was very clean and comfortable. I have stayed in this kind of rooms which costed at least 50 percent more, so viewing the comfort and size of the room I consider the 140 usd ( including breakfast) which we paid on average for the 2 days great value....

We broke our car in the highway and we had to stay in Ellensburg for two nights and chose to stay at Holiday Inn. The hotel was very clean and nice and had a great swimming pool for the kids. Breakfast was very good and the staff was very friendly. I recommend if anyone wants to stay in Ellensburg to... More

I was in Ellensburg for my niece's wedding ... I did the flowers for the reception, bridal party, parents and 50 vases of bouquets! The staff was great, understanding and brought me LOTS of coffee along with the heavenly chocolate chip cookies! We invaded the breakfast room with family, including several toddlers ... it did not throw these great individuals... More

I just spent a week at The Holiday Inn Express in Ellensburg WA and I can not restrain my self from commenting. The Hotel rooms are clean and comfortable (as you would expect) and quiet! A pool and spa and laundry are also available. The morning breakfast is a great way to start the day either in your room or... More

While Ellensburg is only a 1/2 hour away from us, it has a lot of events that we prefer to spend the night at. This is always our go-to place -- quiet, nice rooms, staff have always been professional, killer cookies in the evening, and just overall a good place to be.

This was my first time in Ellensburg for a very important 3 day business trip. When I arrived I was treated with warmth and accommodation when I requested a room that met a few standards - my requests were met and then some! The room was quiet, spacious and perfect for my purposes of working long hours and being comfortable.... More

It was a busy weekend in Ellensburg and they were at full capacity but everything rans smoothly at this Holiday Inn Express. From check-in to check-out there was not a single concern. The rooms are immaculate, beds comfy and a nice variety of soft and firm pillows, and the breakfasts are very diverse...something for everyone. They even have a basket... More

We found the mattress in room 319 was just awful! Had a horrible night's sleep. The hotel itself is well appointed, very nice staff, clean and a good location when traveling. I feel that possibly the mattresses have been ignored for looks of the hotel. I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express' and have never had a problem with... More

Stayed here over the weekend for a soccer tournament with the soccer team. The hotel was very clean, staff was very nice. The breakfast in the morning was the best I think we have ever had at a hotel. Eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, donuts, bagels, pancakes, muffins, toast, biscuits & gravy, juice, coffee, milk, fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs... The... More

The hotel advertises free, high speed wireless. On check in I identified myself as traveling for business and that I needed a room with a great wireless connection and quiet. She assured me that I would have such a room. On the first night, the wireless worked. It was very slow, but it worked. On my second night, there was... More
