“Perfect for sports families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We were in town for a fastpitch tournament, this hotel suited our needs perfectly, value priced and centrally located. We don't spend much time in our room when we travel for tournaments, if it's safe, clean and affordable, we're pretty happy. The pools were great, we enjoyed both, we slept thru breakfast, so no comment about breakfast and we took part in the dinner buffet one night, it was fine, not amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a great experience when we stayed here last May. We are a girls fastpitch team and had a block of rooms for the families and players to stay next to each other at a group rate which we appreciated! Also, we had a night off and they offered the hotel van and a driver that took our players to the Family Fun Center and picked them up, too. Because of the great stay that we had we have booked the rooms again in October. Hopefully our stay will be as good as the last one. We would like to see these new owners (I believe they are brothers?) succeed.

I can't tell you how much we appreciate having your team stay with us. It can be really busy and even a little stressful for sports team parents and we understand that. Anything we can do to make your visit to Yakima that much better is always on the top of our list. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We'll look forward to serving you again in October.

This hotel used to be a Red Lion and a Clarion, it has the old and worn out furnishings, carpets, drapes, and paint, and all rooms don't have flat screen TV's.
It definitely needs upgrading on both interior and exterior.
Some AC units are too noisy, some fridges don't get cold enough.

Thank you for leaving this helpful review to point out the places where we can improve. You may have noticed during your stay that we've been doing a lot of landscaping outside. The process is slow but we will be working our way inward. Try us again soon, enjoy the Laugh Lounge Comedy Club and take advantage of our complimentary breakfast and dinner. We'll be here whenever you need a clean comfortable place to stay.

Yakima Valley Hotel & Conference Center Management

Spent two days mid week, very quiet, few guests. They offer a small dinner buffet, chicken, potatoes, veggies and a odd salad bar. It was okay, if you're not too picky and don't want to leave the building. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. For the price, it's a decent place to stay. It was clean. It is under new management, I hope it gets better. It's not in a great area, lots of closed up buildings. I would probably stay somewhere else next time. If your on a budget, this is a good deal.

this hotel has the possibility of being an affordable destination hotel in Yakima. looks like some upgrading has been done, however the workmanship is horrific. Our air conditioning did not work in 107 temp. They fixed almost immediately with another ancient unit that worked. we were there for a conference so large amount of people eating at one time, they had DIFFICULTY keeping up. kitchen staff needs to be replaced. Food was low quality. Everything was standard or just below. Salad bar was bare bones. They are in an area that grows everything, but non was offered. In summation, this hotel has the possibilities to be a great place if there were a step up in quality.

I was there with my son's baseball team. The free breakfast and dinner was perfect! All we wanted to think about was baseball, it was nice to have meals covered. Not gourmet but hearty enough to fill you up. Clean and spacious rooms, lots of TV channels, 2 clean pools, staff was friendly.

While the motel needs a lot of updating in areas, we found our room clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was ok. If you expect a full meal it might be best to go somewhere else. As far as a free beakfast , its about the normal fare. Never ate supper there so unable to say. I would stay here again, if I were ever back in the area. Very acceptable room rates.

Room Tip: Stay in a ground floor wing room. Ours was very quiet.
