I stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Ellensberg, Washington to pick up my nieces for a visit. The room was clean and well kept. The morning breakfast was good. They have a small swimming pool that my Nieces really enjoyed. The staff was very friendly and helpful with local information for good places to eat. Plus, I met folks who were having their 60th High School Reunion. It can't get much better than that for a small college town. I had a great time and would recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Ellensberg, Washington.
