3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Having stayed here for 3 nights for business, I think they have done a nice job with the room updates. The only thing that was missed for some reason, was the TV. The left the old 1990's style in each room. Nice bed, excellent work station and the WiFi worked very well. The breakfast needs lots of improvement in my opinion. Helpful customer service,, but no one stands up from behind the desk when you are checking in or out. Kind of weird. Lots of free parking. Not really walking distance to restaurants. Hotel is not in the best part of Yakima, so driving is your best bet anyway. This is a good valued hotel. Not sure I would stay here if it weren't for the company putting our whole team here.

We have stayed here before and returned to find it "less" than average. You get a lot of sports teams staying here so it tends to be noisy at night. People were still noisy last night at 11. Sheets and bedding were not that nice of quality but the bed was comfortable.
Elevator near main check in stinks like someone threw up in it. I hope they can address this soon.
I do enjoy the cinnamon twists they have for breakfast. Really yummy. Pool is drained in the winter which makes sense. It's too cold.

I use to stay here all the time, they had a wonderful restaurant with a great salad bar. The prime rib and seafood buffet use to the best. They don't have anything now. What a waste of space. The rooms look exactly like they did 4 years ago. Probably the same sheets. It wasn't a bad stay but it wasn't anything close to what it use to be. I will stay somewhere else next time.
