Fantastic place to stay when visiting Walla Walla! Located just past the tiny municipal airport, the Inn is on a hill surrounded by vines and wheat fields. We were a little hesitant when the website made it sound like we'd be on our own at this "B&B" (no one there at check-in, no real breakfast) but things turned out great. When reserving the room, we got a lower rate of $115 than the main page had indicated for the West Suite. Peaceful music was on in our room when we arrived a little after 3pm; parking was easy in our devoted spot. The four-digit key pad arrangement worked perfectly and saved us from having to bother with a key!
Our room was the smallest of the four at the Inn but just fine for two with a queen bed, a couple chairs, a side table, and a ventless fireplace in the corner. Large flat panel TV with high-tech remote that controlled the DirectTV and music channels. A binder filled with information about the Walla Walla area (including great restaurant recommendations) was provided. Bed was perhaps a little too soft with its feather topper, but nice sheets and good selection of pillows.
Pocket door separated the bathroom area from the bedroom. Spa robes were hanging in the closet area, as well as an ironing board and old iron which leaked terribly when my husband tried to iron a shirt the next morning. Standing shower, no tub.
The bathroom was super-clean with modern fixtures, vessel sink, tile counters, and L'Occitane products. The coffee maker and small refrigerator were located in the bathroom area - a little weird having the food next to the toilet, but couldn't have put it anywhere else. Although the Inn did not provide a standard breakfast, they did provide a decent selection of packaged snacks (cheese spread, crackers, nuts and cookies for the evening; peanut butter breakfast cookies, coffee and tea for the next morning) and some beverages (vegetable juice, apple juice, and a couple beers). Plenty to get us going!
We did run into the owner the evening we arrived ~ as well as the resident rescued greyhound who welcomed us with wagging tail before making several laps around the Inn. Now having stayed once, we might select the East Suite or the Pool Suite for our next visit. Both of those are a little larger suites ~ tho also cost a little bit more. But bottom line: we had a fantastic time and we will come back and stay again.
