We stayed here for a concert at the gorge and to visit our daughter at CWU. On check in the staff was very friendly. We arrived around 1 and check in wasn't until 3. They didn't have rooms ready, but they checked us in and gave us the keys and offered to call us when it was ready. Nice we...

My husband and I always stay at this hotel when we drive through, or when we want to stay a few days. It was our 40th wedding anniversary, and we decided this would be one place we would stay. It was a very warm week end, and we couldn't wait to get to our room. When we got up there,...

My husband fell in the bathtub getting in to take a shower, cut his head which needed stitches. As he was alone during that time, he dialed the desk asking for help. Help arrived immediately, the girls name was Lisa. She helped him put on some shorts and called the Para-medics, then called me. She stayed with my husband until...

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express several times in the last two years and have always been happy with the experience. A few weeks ago during Rodeo&Fair weekend, instead of our reserved king bed room, we were given a two queen room. This didn't suit us at all, but were told the hotel was fully booked and no...

Stayed here on a Thursday night. Checking in, our room smelled like cigarette smoke, despite it being a non smoking property. The front desk staff moved us to a smaller room without any problems. Our second room was very average in terms of quality. The couch had tears in the fabric and looked very old-- like it was taken out...

We will most definitely be back again! We were recently in town for a concert at the Gorge and, coming from Alabama, we didn't know much about the area. At the suggestion of friends, we decided that we would try staying in Ellensburg instead of our usual spot in Moses Lake...what a great choice!! Ellensburg offers a good selection of...

We stayed in the hotel last weekend. Our main reason to stay at the hotel was for the hot tub and pool - we were camping the rest of the weekend so it was a treat. Of all the area hotels, I chose the Holiday Inn Express because it is typically clean and everything functioning and the pool and ot...

This is a great place to stay in Ellensburg. The rooms are immaculate with super clean bathrooms. Service is excellent with very friendly staff and they serve an excellent hot breakfast. The scrambled eggs here were great. We particularly liked the bucolic views from the breakfast room with tables overlooking the fields, this made you feel like you were staying...
