I travel quite a bit and $105 (before taxes) for this location I think was too much. Probably increased due to lots of goings on last weekend in the town, I still think the price was too high for the property. There are many options in Yakima, consider your needs when choosing a hotel.
Yes it is pet friendly but be prepared to pay $25 per animal plus taxes on that! Yes there is a refrigerator but our was set to thaw and was leaking on the floor when we checked in. The bathroom smelled musty and the liquid soap was not that great for soaping up. Parking spots were very narrow and any larger car spanned from line to line leaving no room to open a door without dinging or getting dinged.
The floors and walls are thin unless we had gymnasts above our room who were practicing and the man next door was a smoker and I could smell it in our room. Hot tub was not working and available for use.
The positives were a decent breakfast and easy to find right off the highway on Yakima Ave. The river and walking trail are right behind the building. Very easy access and very nicely maintained.
I feel this property is overpriced for what you get compared to what else is around. The location and pet welcome treats are not enough to justify it for me. I would not go so far as to say it is a place to avoid...just that there are other options to look into.
