We took a spontaneous road trip over the weekend that required us to stay in Wenatchee (got a little too far from home). We couldn't find a hotel anywhere!! Between class reunions and concerts at the Gorge, every hotel was booked from Lake Chelan to Leavenworth. One of the hotels we called gave us a hint that the Inn @ the River may have availability.
We read the reviews here and decided it would be worth a shot. After all, all we needed was a bed and a shower in the morning. I particularly loved the review about the ugly green carpet because 1) who cares and 2) it was not a bad green AT ALL. I've been to convention centers that had carpet so bad you almost cried.
The bed was not too firm. The pillows were just fine. The shower worked and the free shampoo/conditioner (you know the routine) were from Bath and Body Works and that was refreshing.
The front desk was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast in the morning was typical for these things. It was basic and it was crowded, but it was free. We grabbed a few things to eat on the road and off we went.
I would go out of my way to stay here again simply because they saved us on this trip and they were so nice and helpful.
The casino next door had great food and great people watching for a evening cocktail.
$85 for a queen size bed. Best money we spent (other than gas money for the spontaneous road trip)
