Needs updated, however it has been recently bought. Staff was AMAZING. Great to get hot breakfast and dinner with cost of room. Clean rooms, fridge and micro in room. Maid service daily. Hopefully hit tub will be fixed.

I was not at all impressed with this hotel. The halls were very dirty all the time. We were there for 4 nights and our room was never vacuumed. The dust on the toilet tank remained there for the entire stay. The free buffet for breakfast was very limited and was only moderately hot on the last day. other days... More

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.

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
