UPDATE: This is an update to my original review. When we arrived home we checked our credit card statement and realized that this hotel had charged us twice for one of the rooms we had booked. We called the hotel and they explained that a new staff member had made an error, and it would be brought to the manager’s... More

I would like to mention the error was correct within 24 hours of notification. I understand how something can be that frustrating and apologize. I do hope this will not prevent another visit. We would love the chance to show you a more relaxing experience. We do appreciate the feedback and each review will be responded to. More

Quite, restful, clean room. Comfortable bed. Pillows were a bit soft. Didn't need the air conditioner. WiFi was free. Fair breakfast. Great location next to lake. Pet friendly. Very nice staff. Great price for what you get.

This hotel was very clean. Easy to access from I 90. Friendly service at the check-in desk. Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel. There is a beautiful little lake there that you can see from your room. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. For an economy hotel it was a great deal. I would stay... More

This is recently changed to an Econo Lodge. Four of us travelling together checked and three of us were given close proximity rooms and the fourth was at the other end of the building. It was a busy place and our room at the back had us away from the road noise. Good parking right out the exterior room door.... More

This was a nice place to stay the night. There is a lake on the back side of property that is very peaceful. The check in staff were very sweet and helpful. The room had been updated and was very clean. I have no complaints and would definitely stay here again if back in the area.

Just passing through, rates were comparable to other places. Staff was courteous and helpful. The room was clean and typical with every other decent motel, which is good. No surprises. Continental breakfast is a bonus, again, as expected.

Booked our sales group at another hotel for 10 nights, no hot water, no internet. Econo Lodge got our entire group in for the entire stay and were GREAT! Rooms are very nice, great shower, TV selection, clean modern rooms and a wonderful staff. We plan to stay here next year and would recommend this hotel highly.

I am going to write 2 reviews in 1 as this is the 2nd night in less than a week that I have stayed here. That should say something. They have the best truck parking of the 3 I have stayed at in Ellensburg, the rooms are clean and they have a fairly reasonable cdl rate, while not the cheapest... More

This was a last minute stop on a road trip to Eastern Washington. We checked in later in the evening and were lucky to get a downstairs room that had just been redone. New bedding, new beds, good location and very clean. The breakfast was quite basic but got us through until lunch. Nice little lake in the back and... More
