“Nice room, good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We stayed here for just one night, using it as our home base for Oktoberfest in Leavenworth. The hotel itself was very nice and clean, staff were friendly and the breakfast spread in the morning had something for everyone. The price was definitely more than I had anticipated, and despite a good stay I'm not sure it was a great value.

Not sure I would recommend it, or any hotel in Wenatchee for that matter, as a good place to stay to attend Oktoberfest. The distance is quite far between the towns and the shuttle service is horribly inadequate, especially if you leave the festival after 10pm. This isn't intended to detract from this hotel at all, just a bit of advice for anyone looking for accommodation for next year's event...stay IN Leavenworth!

Thank you for the candid response concerning your stay with us during Oktoberfest. This is an event that sell hotel rooms as far away as Quincy. I would suggest if you or anybody plan on staying in Leavenworth for Oktoberfest you make your reservations a year in advance and expect to pay 3-4 hundred dollars a night.

This is my first 5 star rating. This Holiday Inn Express is a fine example of what a hotel should be. It is well staffed with friendly, helpful people. It is clean and well maintained. Good location with fine restaurants nearby. Looking forward to our next stay.

We spent one night here on our way back to the coast. We were pleasantly surprised to get a lovely room at a very good rate. Very nice lobby and great front desk staff. We had a well appointed king room with luxurious décor and bedding. There is a very nice pool area with a fitness centre and business area as well. There seemed to be a lot of business people taking advantage of these amenities. A couple of nights a week they have a complimentary dinner which sounds like a novel idea. They also serve milk and cookies just off the lobby in the evening and show movies in the same area. The breakfast is superb, it is a lovely hot breakfast served in a separate room overlooking the pool. Eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal, pancakes, hot cereal, juices, biscuits and gravy, fruit and pastries. Very nice indeed. this is a lovely property, well kept with excellent staff. I wish we had been able to stay longer.

Last Saturday we stayed there, we went to Oktoberfest in Leavenworth; this hotel was a nice option for us because all in Leavenworth was booked and we stayed with our rewards points. The only room that they had available was queen bedroom but was OK because all was booked. They received us with a bottle of water and some candy. Very fast check in; very clean room, good breakfast. The only thing that we can say is the bed is not comfortable for our taste.

I'm very satisfied that you have found us to be an excellent option for your time at Oktoberfest, and I have a strong sense of pride knowing that you've taken the time to let other travelers know how we keep our service and cleanliness at the top of our standards. I do however apologize for the discomfort you experienced with our mattresses. I hope to have you back in my hotel before next Oktoberfest!

We booked this place for a one night stay after a concert at the Gorge. When we checked in Brittany at the front desk was great. She was extremely friendly and was very excited about the concert we were going to. She gave us goody bags at check-in that included a bottle of water and some candy. She even attempted to get my friend's kids to display some form of excitement about being there. Sadly, she was unsuccessful (not surprising). The room was ok. It was kind of small. The beds were ok, not the best. Pillows weren't great. Could've used more of them in the room and I wish they had been better quality. Our view was of a train track out back of the hotel. There was a train going by when we checked in and I could not hear it through the window. The walls, however, were not soundproof. I could hear every time one of our neighbors got up and walked around or got in the shower. Cool amenity - makeup removing wipes are in the rooms with the usual shampoo, conditioner and lotion. That was a nice surprise.

The pool hours are very convenient - 6am-11pm. Breakfast was included with the room and was served from 6:30-10am. The breakfast was just ok. Orange juice was very watered down and didn't taste good. They did have warm cinnamon rolls which were probably the best thing offered. They had a few hot items - scrambled eggs (which they were out of the whole time I was down there), sausage patties which looked very overcooked, biscuits (which were hard) and gravy. The lobby and breakfast area looked very clean and like they had recently been remodeled.

The location was great, right on the end of town. There's a Wendy's and a Starbucks in the parking lot in front of the hotel, Home Depot and Walmart across the street. Overall I did not sleep well because of the pillows and the mattress but it was ok for one night.

Dearest "OK for one night stay",
Brittany is definitely an asset to us here in Wenatchee! I Would like to thank you for sharing the great aspects of your stay, as well as, the difficulty you encountered while staying with us. We will be addressing all of the concerns you presented to me. We are in the process of replacing all of the pillows in our hotel and have some other exciting renovations.

Because of a road closure, my wife and I spent an unplanned night in Wenatchee. We too a twin room at the Holiday Inn Express. It is a relatively new hotel on a main thoroughfare, close to a number of fast food outlets and strip malls, making it convenient.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool is bigger than in many similar hotels. The room was spacious and well laid out. A major bonus is that through the week, the hotel provides complementary eats in the evening. The night we were there was hamburger and hotdog night served with coffee, soda, wine or beer. We had no room left for the milk and cookies that followed.The free breakfast was also great.

We would certainly go there again.

Sometimes unplanned stops are the best! I feel fortunate that you stopped at my front door! Thank you for your kind words about my property, however, I will have to say I'm flattered to hear you say that we are a newer facility. The truth is the hotel is almost 17 year old. That means we are doing our part in upholding the integrity of the building!! Thank you for taking the time to share with us and your fellow travelers.

As a person who has traveled the country extensively - this was actually one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. Every staff member I spoke with was willing to go above and beyond to make me comfortable - front desk, cleaning staff, kitchen staff at breakfast - literally every person we came across. What a pleasant hotel, I was truly impressed!
