I booked this place through Priceline.com (this is no fault of theirs) and the pictures that are posted for this hotel on the website are very misleading. It shows a modern, clean lobby area and one picture of a clean looking room. When I checked in, I was hesitate already because of the condition of the parking lot and immediate... More

Very old hotel!! Overwhelming stench of curry and garlic permeated the lobby and main hallway from the adjoining residence. Single paned windows (it was less than 45 degrees outside) with a stick in the window sill for security and a barely functioning heating system. All joints and fixtures in the bathroom were caulked with miscolored and poorly applied caulking material.... More

I work for a Glass Fabrication Company from Penticton, B.C. and travel quite extensively over Washington delivering our products. While I cannot in all honesty say that Nendels Inn is a gem, or even a terrific value, I will say that some of the comments made are quite alarming and are not true to my frequent stays there. However, I... More

The room was very affordable, total satisfaction. The breakfast was even better, the customer service was great, very clean room, and the swimming pool... More

It was a great expeirience for us to stay at this place. The customer service and the quality of the room was great. The entire construction crew had a great experience with the hotel. We appreciate you guys opening the pool for an extra hour. We will definitely be back, when we return.

Let me start out by saying this was my first trip to Yakima but one of the greatest experience on this trip was staying at Nendels Inn. From the moment I walked in and to the time I left, I have to say I was extremely happy with the warm services I received. The staff were very friendly and provided... More

Worst motel experience ever! Located in a horrible part of town where I didn't feel safe to go outside alone, day or night! Our room was smokey (even though we were suppose to be in a non-smoking room as indicated by the sign on our door), dirty and loud. The sheets were dirty, had hair on them, and had cigarette...

This place was terrible. I find it interesting that they wouldn't honor my coupon either. Perhaps they should stop publishing it as it is apparent false advertisment.

. Our family had issues with the hotel, Nendel’s Colonial Inn at 1405 North 1st Street, Yakima, and their business practices. We have some strong feelings about the hotel that we stayed in. This hotel felt it was okay NOT to provide sheer basics, such as: 1.Hot water is a necessity that any hotel should KNOW is an essential! It... More

We found a coupon for this hotel in a free travel booklet. They wouldn't honor the coupon and charged us twice as much- $64.88 for a Wednesday. No hairdryer, no shampoo.. soaps crumbled instantly-- weren't useable. Shower was cold and wouldn't get hot... brrr! Outlets wouldn't hold plugs to charge our camera-- loose and dangerous. Free breakfast buffet... HA! 1/2... More
