“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

A wonderful Hotel along the river walk in yakima. We had a great stay!!!! Monica was very helpful with are reservations and getting are rooms by each other on a busy weekend. The staff was great and the complimentary breakfest was very good. The rooms were very nice overlooking the river walk and easy access to down town yakima. The kids injoyed the indoor pool and the adults injoyed the lounge. We will stay there again when we go back to Yakima,Wa. Thanks Monica, from Mr Ristick and family from Portland,Or

We arrived on Friday night before the Carrie Underwood concert. We decided it would be faster and more convenient to just eat at the hotel. We were wrong! They were out of soup, there was salad but were out of most toppings and no forks to eat it with. We sat there and sat there and finally went into the bar to get our own drinks.The waitress finally came around and took our order, but it was obvious there was no efficiency there. It took a really long time to get our food brought to us only to be told that they were out of an item that my daughter ordered. (There was no time to reorder something else) Our food came out separately, in 20 minute increments. It was like the cook was only cooking 2 items at a time. My special needs nephew was the last to be served and this was at least an hour and fifteen minutes after their order was taken. Needless to say, we were late for the concert.

We were told at the front desk at check in there was an after hours party after the concert. We thought that sounded like fun, so we decided to give it another try. The waitress recognized us and apologized for our lack of service earlier which was nice, however, they were out of food again! I'm just wondering how this happens, when the hotel knows way in advance how many people are arriving on a particular night. It seems like they should have planned accordingly.

On a positive note, the food was good and the rooms were nicely appointed with a beautiful view of the walking trail/river.

A beautiful hotel, the rooms are clean and homey, and the pool area is top notch. The people were amazing and the property has a great look on the outside with easy parking. Our dog received treats and a warm welcome and the cookies were delicious!

The room couldn't have been nicer. It was close to the freeway and to local resturants nearby. The morning breakfast was hot and freshly cooked. They have a nice bistro. The view is nice with a walking trail on the Yakima River. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We will be staying here again!

Room Tip: The 4th floor is nice and quiet. Great view of the river walkway.

I have stayed in many hotels.and this hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed in. The staff was wonderful. Jocelyn and Erick were wonderful. Very accomodating. The hotel was very clean.
They offer two free drinks and an appetizer,per person,every evening. The continental breakfast was great. The pool was very nice. I am very picky when it comes to hotels,and this one was awesome!!

The staff are super helpful. Hot Breakfast in the am is yummy. And Soup, Salad & drinks in the pm is great. The walking trail next to the river is the best way to start the day. Wineries are very close. Great Value!!! Will be back again. Thank you

First, without exception, front staff was EXCELLENT, friendly, helpful, mostly very responsive. In particular, I must mention Jocylin and Monica at the front desk. Very helpful, professional and friendly. Yes, I will definitely stay here on any return to Yakima!
Positives: LOCATION along river and river-walk, rooms all look onto river and walk. Parking and access from roadway good. BREAKFAST EXCELLENT! Mind you, this is not a 5 star restaurant, but for an included breakfast, this was top-notch! Very pleasant and friendly staff, very clean utensils and tables, plenty of room. Good coffee and plenty of it, juices, hot chocolate, toast, scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage/ham, hash browns, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, cereal, fruit (fresh and canned), etc. Not everything every day, but plenty of choices that are prepared fresh. I was always happy! Only thing that would improve the breakfast for me is availability of yogurt. BED was great! Good night's sleep. QUIET ROOMS! GREAT!! LIKE ALARM/RADIO: Can attach an MP3/ IPod/ CD player to radio to play. "EVENING Reception" is really nice ... 2 drinks - choice of one of 4 'box' wines (all very decent), beer or soda and a simple, but very good, soup/salad buffet for a light meal/appetizer. Also their 'Bistro' is open with a light menu that, while I didn't partake, looked very good and reasonable. Heard nothing but complements on it from other guests! Again, very friendly, helpful and pleasant staff in the evening. OH! And can't forget the tasty, fresh cookies every evening in the lobby!

Negatives: ROOM smelled extremely stale, like your house a day after you fixed a large meal for a large group without running the kitchen fan or airing out the house. Monica fixed me up with a bottle of 'professional odor eliminator' ... not Fabreeze .. that she let me apply so it would not be excessive and I could deal with it personally. FIXED for duration of the week!
HEATER/AIR CONDITIONER FILTER ... really, really filthy! I opened the unit to check it before complaining about the room smell. I told the desk that the smell was not coming from the fan unit, but it DID need to be cleaned! I suggested that maintenance check it next day. It was never touched while I was there. Judging by my personal home maintenance experience, this filter has not been cleaned in WELL over a year +. The filter needs to be removed and washed in a good detergent, vacuuming will not cut it at this stage! Note to mgmt: This will allow your units to operate much more efficiently!
COFFEE MAKER in room was 'scummy' inside the section where you add water. It needs to be cleaned with a brush and cleaner! Icky poo! Could have asked for a new one, but that's not the point .. why is it in that condition?
SCUM AROUND SINK FAUCET: Bathroom counter (and tub/shower/toilet) was kept very clean, however when I wiped away some of my own splashing of water around the sink and faucet, the tissue was just filled with brown scum just from the seam or joint where the faucet seats against the counter top. It took several repeated wipes (w/soap) to clean that off. Icky Poo again!
HAIR LEFT BEHIND in room twice by cleaning staff (I was alone and have very little hair!). Several long hairs left in/around sink one day, others left in bathroom on another day.
Sorry to say, but the scum on faucet and in coffee maker makes you wonder what the cleaning staff does to "clean" the glass cups and mugs ....... ?? I'm sure they're not replaced with fresh cups/mugs.

If those Neg aspects were corrected I would without hesitation give this an excellent rating.

Room Tip: Stay on 4th floor for more quiet. All doors are inside and face the road-side of building, while ro...
