We were headed from Lynden Wa to Bozeman Mt and decided to stop and spend the night in Ellensburg. Clean and comfortable hotel. Plenty of food on the breakfast buffet. Only comment would be either add some USB ports on bedside lamps or more outlets. We would stay there again.

I stayed for 2 nights while my son was at his College Orientation, rooms were fine, clean and the staff was very friendly.... but as soon as I walked into my room at 10pm I noticed that the walls were paper thin. I almost called down to asked to be moved, thought it was noisy smaller kids. But soon realized... More

After a very long drive that day we checked in to our room. We were greeted and found everyone pleasant and helpful. Our room was wonderful. We had a jetted tub that was SO nice after a long drive. The bed was comfortable and we had a great sleep. The breakfast was one of the best we have had at... More

If driving a Tesla, CALL ahead to the hotel to assure the chargers are not parked in by gas cars. We stayed overnight & were able to charge & moved after full, but the hotel 'allows' gas cars to block the chargers. The beds weren't very good, but we had a good variety of pillows (soft, med, etc.) & the... More

We spent one night here while attending the Sasquatch music festival and I'm grateful for wonderful hospitality. We checked in early and planned to leave our bags but they had a room ready for us! (How nice!) Then, after coming back from the festival, we needed to repair the hem on a dress--and the people at the front desk supplied... More

HIE was a nice hotel with all the expected amenities. The only drawback to the hotel was the beds. We had a group of maybe 30 rooms and everyone said the same thing. The beds sagged in the middle making for a somewhat uncomfortable sleeping experience. Everything else in the hotel was fine. Breakfast was great with a varied menu... More

Thank you for the feedback. We'll need to look into our beds. We actually replaced them all last year - I recall the wedding party - and it looked like all were having a great time. I hope it all went well! More

We frequently use Ellensburg to break a long drive,so that we only have a couple more hours, early in the morning before traffic builds on I-90... The Holiday Inn Express in Ellensburg always takes good care of us! I am happy to recommend this hotel and look forward to our next stay.

I had to stay in Ellensburg for business in Quincy and chose to stay at this location. I've stayed in a few Holiday Inn Expresses and have never been disappointed, even this time. The hotel is right off the main road and it looks like a typical stopover location with gas stations, roadside restaurants, and fast food locations. However, about... More

We stayed two nights and had two rooms. One room faced the freeway but the family who stayed there reported no discernible noise. Breakfast options were good. I really appreciate the choice of soft or firm pillows. The hotel is very clean throughout. Hotel is conveniently located just off the freeway.

A newer facility and great friendly staff. Trouble free visit and the hotel manager Matt is very accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone as there where zero issues and is run professionally. My room was clean and ready for me upon my arrival and the breakfast was filled with variety.
