“Nice place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

The river runs behind the Oxford Inn, providing a calming relief for weary travellers. The walking path by the river is a nice diversion for those weary of the cramped quarters in the car. The rooms were spacious and neat and the beds were comfortable. The pool was a nice relief as Yakima was going through a heat wave when we were there in September. Breakfast was fine and the friendly greeting from the front desk was very much appreciated.
If you are looking for a clean hotel with friendly staff, and a nice pool, I think the Oxford Inn is a nice place to stay.

We had a very pleasant time at this quiet inn when we went to Mt Rainier. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast was also great with Belgian waffles, fruits, cereals, bagels, and hard boiled eggs. We will definitely use this place again.

We stay here at least once a year as we travel to and from family in Western Washington. It has always been a nice, relaxing place. The last two visits have been over whelmed with youth for various sporting events. They are not the issue, as we have long traveled with our six children and their friends/teams. What bothered us what the lack of rule follow through by the staff. Breakfast found batter all over the counter, things spread out of containers as someone looks for the 'exact' fruit or cereal. The floors were constantly wet as access to the pool made its way through the office and upstairs to various rooms. The price was fair. Yet I think we might start looking at something else. If the service deterioates this quickly we don't feel comfortable that it won't continue to decline. The rooms were nice. With amenities of micro and refrigerator. The river view was beautiful. We were there in the summer when it was 90+ degrees out. The hallways measured about the same. Rooms were comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for one further down the hall, away from the check in desk. Second floor cut down on a lot of th...

This hotel was very clean and in a wonderful location along the river with a convenient walking path alongside. Nice swimming pool area beside the river. The staff were extremely helpful. Bed very comfortable and an adequate breakfast. The only restaurant within walking distance was a Mexican right next door, but since I do not like Mexican it was a bit of a bother having to drive into town.

Room Tip: All rooms face the river.

Have stayed at other Oxfords due to their dog friendliness. This one is excellent. Ground floor with a lawn and pathway along the river with easy access from room. The staff is extremely friendly and the breakfast better than most. Throw in free drinks in the evening and makes for an enjoyable stay.

Stayed three nights on business. Very nice accomodations, close to a bike path / greenway and close to the Yakima River. The building is one long wing, so every room faces the river. Balconies approx 3ft x 8ft , enough for a couple to sit and enjoy the evening. Room layout is modern/spacious quite comfortable for a few night stay. Noise level is low, good sound insulation; some noise from the Interstate if you have the sliding balcony door open. Breakfast is good - cereal, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, biscuits & gravy, yoghurt, juice, coffee, good assortment of teas. I would have given an "excellent" if the air conditioner had been quieter. Otherwise very nice place.

Staff at the front desk were very helpful even though we arrived without a reservation on a weekend night. They only had smoking rooms left (forgot that Washington still had smoking permitted at hotels) but they let us preview the options and even offered to see if they could find us a non-smoking room elsewhere in town. We elected to stay in the less smoky room because all the rooms has a lovely balcony and river view, and the room was large and well appointed with comfortable bedding and a good free breakfast. Good wifi access, and a good Mexican restaurant next door, so all good. Counter staff in the morning at check out was also very friendly. Definitely stay here again, but in a non smoking room...

Room Tip: Higher up in the building and definitely non smoking if you are non smoker.
