I am giving them four stars because it is a fair deal. The room was clean and very bright, there were plugs for the phone, iPod and so on, fast WiFi and a decent (not great) breakfast is included. It cost me $59 a night plus tax. If you read my last review from Bend, Oregon, and compare the two places, you will see this is a much better deal AND we got a better room as well. I am putting up a couple photos to show the room. You will see it is very bright and cheerful; I don't know what all the fuss is about the "yellow and purple... cinder block walls..." from the other reviews. Is yellow an offensive color, or a cheerful color on a grey day in Walla Walla? I thought it was cheery.
It's a nice room with updated furniture and room to move. The location was great as well, perfect for wine tasting and walking to dinner. We stopped in to see friends at the Marcus Whitman - sure it is a big place and fancy, but at triple the price? We spent the money on wine instead. Great wine. And then we enjoyed the MW great lobby for free.
Think about it.
That is worth a star right there.
All that being said: there is no luggage rack to put a suitcase on, no closet but there is a rack to hang clothes. The service was friendly, the breakfast OK (coffee, tea, juice, fruit, two cereal, instant waffle maker, oatmeal, packaged rolls, some bagels, sausage, eggs, hot sauce yea!). The hot tub is dated, and located in a weird place (next to breakfast - Hi !!) so we didn't use it. The rooms look out to the open pool area and there is plenty of parking. The window is a sliding glass door with security bar.
So, it is a great budget choice for the area.
