We had a nice poolside room, which wasn't entirely bad. The room was 76 degrees when we checked in and never got any cooler and there was trash behind the refrigerator cabinet. Called for maintenance and he came and reset the thermostat and said that should fix the problem, but if it didn't we could call front desk and get... More

Very much enjoyed a 3 night stay. Older hotel but felt kinda like an old mansion with a wide curving staircase to our room. Ice water and tea available in the hall and lobby areas for free. Great pool areas with lounges and tables. Area is great, we brought bikes and were able to visit many restaurants and sites in... More

We have been staying here for a few years now while visiting family and have had decent stays, until now. We were assured when booking that our room came with full amenities: microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, hair dryer, etc. There was no refrigerator and when we called the front desk, we were told that some rooms come with them and...

Keefer Family, I'm sorry to hear about your experience with us. Every room should have a microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot and hair dryer in good working order. As well as a properly flushing toilet and air conditioning. I'm sorry our staff was not more accommodating to replace / fix these items. I will discuss further with our Operations Manager to...

Rooms are clean. But the service is below acceptable. A broken light that is floating in the pool is dangerous and when I went to the front desk, the manager said he'd send someone to fix and never did. Light actually said 120volts right on it. I tried to call the front desk and the manager working the desk kept... More

We staid one night . The room had a smell like somebody had been smoking in it and they tried to cover it up with an air freshener. The carpet and the wall paper were bubbled up and peeling away from the floor and wall. From what looked like water damage. And after we checked into our room and left... More

The place is a bit run down. I stayed in the back part, which reminded me of a low rate motel. The TV wouldn't come on, I found out it was plugged into the entryway light switch. Also, the tv wouldn't get HD. And, the lounge I sat in at the pool, the right arm was broken. Also, one of... More

Hi Paul, I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us was not a great one. I'll have engineering take a look at the TV that was in your room as well as the lounge chair at the pool. Again I'm sorry ~ More

Right next to convention center in downtown Yakima. The service at this hotel is the part worth mentioning. We walked in at 5:30 pm on a Tuesday night with no reservation. The front desk staff quoted 189.00 for a room, but when I told him I could get one for 109.00 on Priceline he suggested I book it that way.... More

They did not check in until exactly 3:00 - The line was really long with people trying to get their rooms to get to other activities. The A/C did not work in either of the rooms that I reserved for us and my daughter's family. The breakfast was not free and for the price we paid I think it should... More

I'm very sorry about the air conditioner not working properly. The main unit was fixed Friday afternoon but took some time for those rooms affected to cool properly. I hope that you will return with your family, for a future stay. We'll be sure to put you around the larger pool with individual ac units. More
