It had been over 20 years since I had stayed at this hotel and I was happy to see it still had some of the things I enjoyed as a frequent guest during my working years.
We had a room on the backside, with sliders to an inner courtyard. When we parked in front of the unit, we thought, oh, oh, this looks questionable. But, when we opened the door to find a beautifully decorated room and nice tiled bath with a huge shower, we were very pleased.
Loved the bed, pillows, linens, the comfy chair and the table and chairs out on our private patio in the courtyard. One wish though, the patio was filled with vegetative debris and cobwebs and the table and chairs very dusty, it would be nice to include this area in daily housekeeping. From the courtyard, it is an easy access to either of the two pools. Anyone that has visited Yakima in the summer knows that a great pool area is a big deal. Both of these were so well kept, lots of beautiful vegetation surrounding it and plenty of chairs and lounges. They even had an ADA assisted power lift into the pool.
I appreciated the refrigerator in the room as we had picked up some fruit to enjoy for breakfast and it kept our beverages nice and cold. Speaking of breakfast, we came down too late to partake of the Roaring Start breakfast, but the front desk clerk offered to see if they could put something together for us anyway. Nice touch.
The location of this property is very convenient not only for the adjoining convention center, but for walking through the downtown area, which has spiffed up considerably since my last visit.
This is an older hotel and I would imagine, as many sprawling, older properties like it, your experience will vary depending on which room you get. We couldn't have been happier with our Garden King room.
