Only staying the night on our way to Seattle. Had a lake view room, better than looking out at the freeway and quieter too. The desk gave us a great place to go and eat in downtown. Though it was only one night it was an enjoyable stay

Extremely basic hotel bordering on lower end of scale. Upon check-in, the desk agent was not overly friendly, but not curt either. He didn't make eye contact, but was efficient in doing his job. My wife said he was just shy. The rooms are very dated and although clean, the overall feeling left me wondering just how clean it really... More

The staff at this motel was friendly and helpful. The room tho not fancy was at a fair price and had all the things you want in an overnight stay, clean room and bed, tv, hot shower etc. Had Waffles and hot coffee in the lobby for breakfast, enjoyed my stay there.

Check in was pleasant. Location is a bit removed from the campus motel row. There is a small lake behind the motel and the room was pleasantly quiet. Don't look for the extras here. Only one pillow per person and one blanket under the comforter. The breakfast was the usual basics and it included waffles. The price was right on.

Thank you for your review, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Our hotel is slightly further away from the rest of the hotels in Ellensburg and many people see this as a positive. It is typically quieter and less crowded here. We hope to see you next time you're in town! More

Room was clean, on the second floor. Signage is poor, no sign on the building itself, just one out by the road. There's a Subway and a truck stop in walking distance if you're hungry. I ordered pizza from town. Has been renovated but rather poorly, no baseboards in the bathroom with gaps in the laminate.

Last motel available for this weekend due to graduation... needed 3 rooms. Mgmt gave all 3 rooms together and didn't request this. Front desk staff friendly, helpful and efficient getting us checked in. Motel is old, but pretty clean. Rooms were small but clean as well. Continental breakfast was simple but adequate.

Spent 3 nights here while in town for a conference. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is pet friendly with a nice area to walk the dog. The breakfast was very basic; it would have been nice to have a protein source (hard boiled eggs?) or even yogurt. Something my gluten intolerant companion could eat. But I couldn't... More
