“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I am an agency RN needing peace and quiet to sleep after working a nightshift. Clemencia at the Oxford Inn is superb at dealing with sleep-deprived nurses turning up unannouced at 8 am desperately needing 8 hours of undisturbed sleep. She and the rest of the staff are genuinely nice people: you can tell they actually like working there. It is the only place I will stay when in Yakima. The added bonus is the Yakima River right outside the motel: a blue ribbon trout and salmon destination!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

All staff I encountered were probably the most personable, gracious and very helpful I have ever encountered in a hotel, making my two-day staff peaceful in preparation for a job interview. I enjoyed my morning greenway walk along a pretty river. The free breakfast offers the usual high carb choices. Internet works well, although it is not a secure connection. Rooms are fine, although the bath floor and carpet needs cleaning.

Room Tip: All rooms face north to the river.

I was in Yakima with a group of students and this was an excellent value hotel. Rooms were clean and staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, from front desk to room cleaners. Breakfast was simple but very good. The location is quite a ways from downtown in terms of walking but is conveniently located near the freeway and has nice views of the river so depends on what you are after. I also left my iPad plug there and management were very quick to respond and ship it to me. Overall a very good hotel for its value and would definitely recommend it.

No particular bargain at approx. $110 for 4 - 5 people, but otherwise good.
Indoor pool & hot tub.
All rooms face the Yakima river, which makes it quite nice.
Nice hot breakfast - waffles, bisquits & gravy, fresh fruit, yogurt, cold cereal, regular & decaf coffee.
Nice hotel employees.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We believe that your review was for our sister hotel, Oxford Suites Yakima, which is located about 1/4 of a mile from our hotel. Our hotel offers an outdoor pool (seasonal) and hot tub. Regardless, thank you for choosing an Oxford hotel for your stay! We hope to serve your lodging needs again in the future.

Because of an early afternoon wedding and a "very important" football game to watch we asked for an early check in the first day and a late check out the second. Melody, who checked us in and Clemencia, who checked us out, both went out of their way to help us. The rooms are a good value for the money, and the staff is excellent.

We changed our room requirements at the very last minute and the staff were extremely accommodating and pleasant about it. They went out of their way to give our sons and ourselves adjoining rooms on the ground floor so we could let our dog out. We hadn't even thought to ask for that.
We also enjoyed the evening reception and the breakfast.

It's close to many shopping opportunities and fit the bill for all our needs. We will definitely stay there again.

We regularly stay here. On the river with the walking path; Mexican restaurant next door; plenty of parking; easy access to the highway. Staff are always helpful and we find our room clean and well stocked.

Room Tip: We always ask for a ground floor unit with access to the pathway.
