Older complex with dinner & breakfast available to guests. Meeting rooms, too!. Ground level rooms. Only complaint is the Wi-FI. Either not enough routers or out dated ones. 2 different times we could not get connected to the outer world with an iPad..

Delightful friendly staff and the accommodations were great, rooms are large with all the amenities needed for a comfortable safe stay. House keeping was awesome, and the front desk was the best I have ever encountered in any hotel, very helpful. These guys are truly on top of their game; for the value it would be hard to beat. I...

I was booked here by friends who live in the area. I could not believe the value of what I was given. A huge room with a king bed and large tv, access to pool and spa, as well as free breakfast and dinner. Dinners were a single dish, but we're tasty and as they were self-serve, plentiful. All the...

We traveled from Seattle to Yakima the weekend of Oct. 4 - 6 to have one last encounter with summer, and this place did not disappoint. What I am looking for in a room is 1) a comfortable bed; 2) A clean room; 3) A great pool with a hot jacuzzi; 4) Refrigerator in the room, and 5) Powerful shower... More

We have been here for an hour and the pool is filthy and hot tub is cold. We came to sit in the sun, jump in the pool (one of two is closed - the clean one) and the hot tub is cold. Worse, they don't seem to care.

Stayed there one night during the cannonball run. Very Nice Rooms and a great breakfast! Didn't use the pool but it looked great...both of them. Good location for visiting Mt. Rainer and this area of Washington.

I've stayed at this property many times over the years, when it was a Red Lion, then Doubletree, then Clarion. None of those chains invested much in keeping the property updated and now that it appears to be independent, that trend continues in spades. There is no longer a functioning restaurant, only a coffee shop. The bar is open only... More

We stayed one night in a suite and it was totally worth it! The room was very spacious & comfortable, but the bathroom, with the jacuzzi tub, was definitely the highlight! So, so relaxing! The two pools and hot tub have been remodeled so that was a nice touch. Overall, very impressed and will definitely be coming back!
