“Great Location!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed here overnight this past weekend for a concert at the gorge, and have to say..this is the perfect location, conviently located right off of the highway. The rooms were very very clean and spacious, breakfast was excellent, love the cinnamon rolls!! Will definatly be coming back next summer for our annual summer concert.

Room Tip: call ahead for early check in

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 on a country estate. Very nice!

Take note: two weeks before we stayed at the Best Western Lincoln Inn suites which was more expensive and had filthy bathrooms. The Holiday Inn Express is a far better choice. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the fields at the rear of the hotel. Nice and quiet. They give a good rate to se...

As a road warrior, I get to stay over 150 nights a year in a hotel. Rarely do I encounter the professional and warm service I received at the Holiday Inn Express in Ellensburg. My suite was excellent, the staff from front desk staff to housekeeping always greeted me warmly. This is the kind of service I expect from a top tier hotel and I was delighted with my visit. I hope I get to stay here again.

We stayed at the HIE while being in town on business. From the moment we come in, the staff truly seemed to be there to make outstay enjoyable. Great rooms, great food, great info on the local area. We were upgraded to king suites, which had a great amount of space, with comfortable beds, and a nice sofa and work area!

We recently stayed here, and everything was excellent. The service was over the top, the entire hotel is immaculate, and the breakfast selection and service were wonderful. The staff was very friendly and cared about our stay. I cannot say enough about this hotel. It is easy to see that the staff enjoy working here, because it shows in how they treat their customers. We stayed her for our anniversary, and it was truly wonderful.

I'm a very picky person when it comes to hotels. Must be spotlessly clean. This Holiday Inn Express didn't let me down. So convenient from the freeway. Wonderful a.m. breakfast (free) AND cookies at night. Rooms very nice, beds comfortable, staff great. I wasn't disappointed!!

I've stayed at 2 other HIEs in the past, and they this was the best of the three. The rooms were clean and contemporary, and the beds were VERY comfortable. It was also a great value and less than other similar hotels in the area.

Still, the best part was the service. The free breakfast was really good, and the great ladies who staffed it were so helpful, even asking if they could get us anything from the kitchen when we showed up a bit late.

This is the place to stay when passing through Ellensburg!
