Looks great from the pictures...don't be deceived!

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: The pool was nice.
Cons: Clean the rooms, provide the basics--ice, vending machines that work.... etc.
Booked for the night based on what appeared to be pictures of a newly updated room. What I found was nothing more than lipstick on a pig... in a very dirty room that smelled of paint and flooring no-less. The bathroom shower curtain, shower enclosure and especially window was covered in black and pink mold. The tub was dirty, with more black mold running through the seams of the tub in the front. Turned on the "hot" water and it took over 20 minutes for it to get luke warm. Went to get ice and ice machine is broken. I inquired at the front desk and was told there is a store a couple blocks up the street. Went back to get a bottle of water from the vending machine later that night and found that machine broken as well. Again inquired at the front desk (As the sign stated to do on the machine) and was told (By a different employee this time) that the manager doesn't trust him with the keys to the machine, and again that there is a store a few blocks up the street. Overall horrible experience. This is obviously a motel that was renovated, but done so in such a way that it should NOT carry a national name. Dirty room. Horrible staff. Stay away.

The last resort.

Posted Aug 13, 2014
I booked way ahead for a room due to a function at the Gorge, yet I had few options. Upon arrival it was almost 100 degrees and the ice machine we were told was broken! I waited to check in 35 mins in line. One staff member. The pool is in the middle of the parking lot!!! Surrounded by cars and concrete. The beds were hard as a rock, floors were noisy pergo, no carpet. The feel of the d├ęcor was retro which was cool. Room was tidy & clean, that's all I can say good about it. I was happy to have a place to stay, but wished I had a more comfy bed mostly.

Decent clean hotel.

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: Flat screens,great channels and the price is exactly spot on for the establishment. Good shower.
Cons: Larger and more comfortable beds.
Location: 30 minute drive to the Gorge.
Basic, clean room. Excellent TV's and channel options. Good shower. Beds are small and not very comfortable. Looks dingy from the outside but the rooms are nice. Great for a short stop over but would not want to stay longer than a day or two. Decent outdoor pool.

Pros: A/C
Cons: Cleanig
Location: Ellensburg has many shopping and eateries, beautiful panoramic views.
Upon arrival we were greeted nicely at the reception counter, we were assigned a room on the second floor which was accessible by stairs only. we proceeded to our room and opened the door to find full size beds no queens, stained bed spreads, and a dirty shower stall. the best part of the stay was the air conditioning was ice cold on 90 degree evenings. the rooms had some recent re-modeling which was nice but offset by the uncleanliness.

Good rate but lacking a few things.

Posted Aug 8, 2014
The location we stayed at was clean, conveniently located close to our activities, but was missing a few basics in the room. We had two very thin sheets on the bed (With no extras), and the pillows were basically non-existent (Very thin and easily compressed). Also there was no soap or shampoo provided in the room for the shower. I needed to go to the local convenience store to get those things. The staff was very pleasant and the room was very clean when we arrived, so that helped to offset the negatives. Overall, I would stay there again, but remember to bring a few things from home next time.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: A wrecking ball is needed to improve this place.
Location: Seedy area of Ellensburg. Felt unsafe at night.
Dilapidated and noisy. Bed was like sleeping on a granite slab. Drunk noisy college kids roam the stairway @1am. We should have spent the night elsewhere even if it cost a little more.

Good and inexpensive. Not fabulous, but comfortable for a night or two.

Okay for a quick stay, but certainly not luxury.

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Free wifi
Cons: beds were not great but okay for just a few hours. Lots of noise outside the rooms as it is open with people outside at all hours.
Location: Central Washington University
This hotel was fine for the 10 hours we had to sleep and get down the road. The staff seemed friendly and offered to direct us to some local dinner places. Her recommendations were good. The facility is older, not anything of luxury but did the job for the very short time we were there.

Better than Expected!

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: The room had a modern design with bamboo flooring. It was very spacious for our family of 4. Shower was great, awesome water pressure.
Cons: Bath towels were wimpy. Wi-fi did not work in our room, but did in the parking lot. Not sure why.
Location: We were close to downtown Ellensburg. We checked out at 11am, ate at I-Hop and went to the farmers market in downtown before driving on.
We booked this motel from the road, not really knowing what to expect. This motel was way batter than expected and the price was perfect (under $100). We also confirmed with our credit card and were able to check in at 11:30pm with no problem.

Great value, minor issues.

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Location. Roomy room. Simple. Price.
Cons: Air conditioning for sure.
Location: Ellensburg is a great town! We graduated from CWU 20 years ago and we keep coming back to visit. Quaint small town with flare!
The price was great considering there was an event in town. But the only issues are that shampoo is not provided unless you go to the office and ask for it. And the air conditioning (set on Cool High and turned all the way to "Cold") in our room didn't really work well so it was a bit of a hot evening of sleeping. The t.v. had a cool option built in on it on the wall of the option of plugging in a USB, HDMI VGA cable ....... BUT... there were no instructions on how to use it and there was no "Input" button on the remote which is the typical. But since there was "input" button or instructions we were unable to use that option to hook up our laptop to the t.v.
