Best Western Wheatland Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Colfax
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying in this remarkable hotel. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is! The staff is super friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and ROOMY, and the location smack in the middle of the Palouse can't be beat. I am a photographer and it is so easy to access all the great locations from Colfax. Each room has a microwave and fridge, and the remotes for the TV are sanitized! The breakfast exceeded the usual hotel continental fare. Fresh yogurt and fruit are on the menu here as well as the things you would expect, like waffles. Coflax itself is not exactly the dining mecca of Washington, however. Drive to Pullman for dinners. But there is a great grocery just across the street from the Wheatland Inn which has a nice deli - we scored lunches there. If you have a lot of luggage, be sure to ask for a first floor room - there is not an elevator. And oh, I almost forgot to mention that this is a super affordable stay. I wish that this hotel could clone itself across America!

Went on a photo trip with a friend to capture the beauty of the Palouse in all it's late summer glory. We stayed three days and two nights, using this place as a "base".
It is so conveniently located in Colfax and we were easily able to go out 360 degrees from this place. The front desk "lady Rita" was most helpful with suggestions on sites and local places to eat. I would stay there again without hesitation. Includes breakfast too!

The hotel staff is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are large and clean, with extra blankets. The pool is large and warm. The breakfast has a large variety and the dining room is neat and tidy. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available all day. While the hotel sits on the highway you don't hear the traffic. The grounds are kept nice and tidy. We have stayed here several times and took our 2 dogs with us for the one stay. There were pets on our last stay but never saw or heard them. Not having to always leave our 4 legged family members at home is a bonus for us. We will stay at this hotel again!

Dear Draftsrus, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. As a dog owner myself, I am very proud to be able to offer a clean, dog-friendly property. We also make it a point to have rooms available for guests that may have allergies and prefer to be in a non-pet room. Thank you for choosing to stay with us again.

We stayed at the Best Western Wheatland Inn during a quick pass through Colfax. The hotel was very clean, inviting, and comfortable. The reception staff were very helpful - we were greeted warmly and the check-in process was very smooth. The breakfast was complete - eggs, sausage gravy & biscuits, various breads, fruits, cereals, and make-your-own waffles. All of the staff were very hospitable and attentive to our needs. The fitness center was small but well-maintained and equipped. We didn't have a chance to use the pool, but it looked very clean and we would have used it if we had enough time. There was nice prayer/blessing in our room, which we greatly appreciated. All in all, it was a very nice stay, and we hope to return soon to this hotel!

When we couldn't find a hotel in Pullman we had to look in surrounding communities. We were pleasantly suprised! The hotel was very clean, mostly quiet and the staff was great. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: The odd-numbered rooms are on the street side which can be a litte noisy for light sleepers but othe...

Many new WSU parents undergo baptism by fire in terms of the Palouse lodging situation. In a nutshell, it's at a premium. I *never* expected that getting a hotel room in this corner of the world would be an issue. Little did I know! I can just about forget ever staying in Pullman, or Moscow for that matter, when visiting my son. Rooms are booked more often than not, and prices are exorbitant.

Fortunately, at WSU's summer orientation, I learned the Best Western Wheatland Inn offers a 25% discount for parents of students. That break does help, as does the fact the hotel is located 15 miles away from the school, in Colfax. Yes, it can be tedious driving back & forth to campus, but the drive is pleasant (in pleasant weather, anyway!) and the likelihood of vacancies is higher.

I spent three nights here during the freshman "Week of Welcome" and was really impressed with the level of service. My "Excellent" rating is based on what one would expect of a hotel of this level. It's not the Ritz Carlton by any means, but for a Best Western in what some people consider the middle of nowhere, the management & staff are top notch. From front desk staff to room attendants, everyone here does a great job and, notably, they're genuinely pleasant even in the midst of their work.

My double queen room was exceptionally clean, everything well-maintained. The pool is small, but in a nice area just off the lobby, well-lit thanks to a bank of windows. Breakfast room is fairly small but again, has windows & never felt cramped. The food was, well, what one expects of a Best Western or any other chain that provides breakfast along with the room rate. Nothing to write home about, but meets most people's needs.

I'd love to be closer to campus while visiting my son, but will gladly depend on this hotel as my home away from home as needed. The price seems high given the locale, but once you look into other hotels in Pullman & Moscow, you quickly realize that it's a market-driven & a solid value.

I was impressed with the great customer service. I could only book 1 night and needed 2 nights in the area to move my daughter into her college dorm. When I called, Crystal was very interested in trying to help with the extra night I needed as well as offering to find a room with an additional bed. It is refreshing to have someone offer help and even though it worked this time and may not in the future, the fact that someone tried was very good customer service.
