“Really enjoyed it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We got this reservation through Hotwire and were glad this was the final selection since I had read the reviews. We were there for the music competition weekend, so housing was difficult to find. This worked out great. Friendly staff, very nice breakfast, and comfortable room.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

Okay.... Lots of poor hotel reviews in Ellensburg but you can also pay a lot for more if that is what you want. If you are on a budget, this will be fine.

Room Tip: Thus is not luxury but apparently recently upgraded and under new management. Bernadette at the desk...

if you dont want to spend over $100 this is the place to stay in Ellensburg, the staff is really nice and the room although basic is very clean, quiet and has been updated.
As a woman travelling alone one major concern when staying at a motel is safety and I felt very safe here.
The breakfast was good, they have a waffle machine and various other pastries and the area has been updated as well.
Nice to see a nod to being environmentally friendly by installing the pump shower gel and shampoo to reduce waste..

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeview

Checked in after long days drive. Friendly service, clean room overlooking a small lake. Good complimentary breakfast! I'll come here again!

Ideal for an overnight stay, moderately priced and good value. I would stay there again if I ever revisit Ellensburg.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, facing the lake. It's very quiet.

The rooms had two beds but there was space for only one. Tight quarters to say the least. It was clean, staff was friendly, but the advertised prices are a joke. We inquired about the $79 rooms and found that since there was a lot of activity in town we got to pay $135 for our space. At $79 I'd suffer the tight quarters, at the price we paid? Had we not been really tired we would have gone on down the road.

Room Tip: Find a 2nd floor room.

Your basic 60's-70's era cheap motel. For the money, there are certainly better options in town (Days Inn, Comfort Inn and others aren't much more expensive). I've stayed here twice--the last time the in-room phone didn't work, the breakfast bar was immediately picked over and wasn't restocked, no coffee in the rooms, etc. Basically, I stay here when there aren't other options in town.
