two rooms- they got it right 50% of the time

Posted Jun 15, 2015
one room was fine except couldn't get the ac cool enough, the other the ac worked great but had very dirty coverlets on the beds (both!), and the bathroom door and walls needed attention-- just being wiped down occasionally would help (mucus should stay in a tissue- just sayin'). Neither room had coffee which we were told should have been in the room. Overall, I've stayed in worse!

It's an inexpensive place to sleep

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: The staff and price
Cons: Invest in new pillows and blankets
Location: All Ellensburg has to offer is just a short drive. Easier to get to when visiting CWU than the hotels by the freeway
it was interesting to stay here since I stayed here several years ago when it was still the old Thunderbird. While they have 'remodeled' since then, it is much nicer. However, while they have painted over the old cinder block walls, and added some modern touches, they are cosmetic. They didn't fix anything. For example the bathroom door didn't close, the tob grout was shot, and I'm pretty sure the blankets and pillows were leftover from the old hotel. They were thread ear and stained. Honestly these are trivial things to me. I really just want a place to sleep, and you don't pick the 6 for luxury. However, the pillows were a joke, old, broken down and barely usable, and the bed was beyond uncomfortable, and both my mother and I had horrible back pain through the night. My mother does not have back issues. We were just grateful when the night was over. On the other side, the staff at check in was amazing. While our ck in was simple, I had done it thru Expedia and pre paid, the young woman in front of us had a bit of an issue, that could easily have ruined their trip. I know the desk man broke a rule or two, but didn't bat an eye and just made a decision and took care of it. He could definetly handled it different, and on behalf of the guest he helped, I'm glad he chose the option he did. So, while it wasn't ideal, and I had a horrible night, I'm too cheap to pay 150 dollars or more just to sleep, so it is safe tosay I will stay here again .

Met my expectations for a Motel 6

Posted May 20, 2015
I rated this room based on what I expected to get at a Motel 6. The motel manager was friendly and courteous. The room was clean and I wasn't afraid to sleep on the bed. The bed was a little more firm than I like but it wasn't horrible. The furnishings and décor of the room was a bit sparse but I actually liked that about the place.

Gross motel

Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: The desk staff were friendly.
Cons: Tear down the place.
Dirty with nothing to offer. Seems like an hourly type motel. Old everything, but my daughter said, what do you expect from a motel 6? Well, I thought better than what it was. Never again will I make that mistake.

One night stay

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Hotel was just fine for a night stay. Fancy at all, no extras, but it was safe and clean. It definitely smelled clean, like REALLY clean -- almost overbearing in the chemical scents. Otherwise, yes, I would stay there again.

Clean and simple.

Room was clean and simple. No frills hotel. We had soap but no shampoo but for the cost it was a good room.

Spartan inside but nice and new.

Inside of the room is great, outside is a little sketchy. Well worth the money for a place to sleep, though.

Not a bad choice

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. I asked for extra pillows & blanket and the staff actually seemed genuinely happy to help.
Cons: Maybe switch to a cleaning product without a long lasting strong scent.
Location: The location was great for anyone wanting to explore the Downtown area on foot. Lots of restaurants, shops, and bars within walking distance.
The had modern furnishings, seemed a bit large with a minimalist approach to furnishings. The only really bad thing was the overwhelming smell of cleaning products (I have bad allergies and scent sensitivities so what's bad for me is probably just fine for others). If we ever go to Ellensburg again we would be inclined to stay here again.

Just a place to sleep

Posted Mar 23, 2015 on Hotels
The room was clean, safe, and relatively quiet. Beyond that, it was the most bare-bones place I've ever stayed in: no carpet on the floor, only one thin blanket on the bed. But I guess you get what you pay for!
