Places to Stay


We're planning a weekend away from Sea in June. I've never been to the Yakima area. We're planning on going to the Rattlesnake Hills area for wine tasting. Does anyone have any recommendations for places to stay? Looking at the map, thought we would start back towards Gilbert Cellars area...something easily accessible to 12 but not close enough that we would hear the traffic. Again, I've never been anywhere near here so don't know what to expect. Any help would be appreciated.

I was in Yakima a week and a half ago. I drove home over highway 12 / White Pass / highway 123 and past Mount Rainier. That was a gorgeous drive. I highly recommend it.

What type of accommodations are you looking for? There are several chain motels, some B & Bs, but overall the Yakima area features some very basic, but pleasant accommodations, though nothing fancy.

I like to stay at the Oxford Suites, it is located just off 12, but overlooking the Yakima River, traffic noise is not an issue if you face the river. I like the location because you are right on the Yakima Valley trail, so I can get my morning run in. Also, includes free breakfast, though again, nothing fancy. I have also stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn, again very pleasant, newish, comfortable, quiet, in downtown, which, isn't necessarily an advantage, as there isn't much in downtown Yakima.

We're definitely not looking for anything fancy. Just nice and comfortable. These are great suggestions, thank you!
