I arrived at the Chalet after a really exhausting day, and the owner, Mike, immediately set about making my one-night stay far more pleasant than I ever expected. The room was spotless -- no need to worry about icky stuff here! It's clear that he anticipates his guests' needs and does a terrific job satisfying them. There are a lot of places to stay in Cle Elum and Ellensburg, but we will only ever stay at the Chalet. The price is quite reasonable, the room better than expected, but what really makes it stand out even more is that Mike is among the most gracious, friendly, efficient businesspersons I've ever met. He gave me a cold orange juice, provided the toiletries you expect in much higher-priced places, and was friendly and efficient in checking me in. So many people in the "hospitality business" just don't know how to work with people -- but Mike pretty much defines "hospitality." He was so attentive and the room was so comfortable that I wish I were able to stay another night. If you're traveling between Seattle and Eastern Washington/North Idaho, this is where you and your family want to stay. We certainly won't wonder where to stay when we need to stop over, because as long as Mike and the Chalet are here, so will we.
I imagine they're all as spotless as mine!
