My guest and I stayed one saturday evening. It started with staff at the front desk really not knowing how to handle frequent situations. I experienced staff that needed training badly in hospitality conduct, attitude and grooming. Experienced hair and other food stuff in the "free" breakfast. Will not come back to this Hotel. The General Manager, Jessi Mulari needs to be fired for irisponsible management. This staff needs to be trained badly or replaced.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.....!

I searched online for the best deal in Ellensburg. Being an Ellensburg native I knew there are not too many quality choices. We were staying one night so felt we could sacrifice some of the comforts we prefer for longer stays. The front desk staff had our reservation ready immediately but did not know if breakfast was served Friday morning or not. We had to press her to find out. I asked if we would get a discount if they weren't serving but she said no because we had purchased through Expedia. We went on to our room and found it to be basic but clean. It is a bit tatter and worn but not offensive. The beds were fresh and crisp and comfortable. After checking in we left for the evening but on the way out the front desk staff stopped us to tell us they were serving breakfast Friday morning. When we came back in that evening the new front desk person did not even raise her eyes to look at us nor did she greet us as we walked right past her. There was no one else in the lobby, not like it was busy. We slept well had good showers and went to the breakfast buffet. It was minimal at best, certainly picked over and cold. There was only coffee, no decaf or tea. As we left there was another new front desk person. This one was very cordial, professional and attentive. It turned out to be an okay but not great stay. It met our need at the time. Nothing to write home about.

I am shoked. I came for a conference held at this hotel, so it was logical to stay here for two nights. The toilet in my room was not even cleaned. There was this moldy smell in the room. Towels were so harsh, it felt like sandpaper touches my skin. Restroom in the conference room was not cleaned for at least several days, because the toilets had those black rings inside... they were out of paper towels and toilet paper. Their Cleanex was actually gray and harsh! I could not believe I am still in America! My friend's room was straightened up, but no one vacuumed crumbs from the floor. I could hardly sleep at night. Mostly because I could hear every use of plumbing in the whole building: toilets, showers, sinks... I wouln not recommend this place.

This is not a fancy, new hotel, so don't expect a fancy room. The rooms were decent, clean, and the price was reasonable. We went with friends and had adjoining rooms, which was great, we had the door to the two rooms open, and the adults hung out in one room and the kids in the other, but we could still keep our eyes on the kids. Then at bed time everyone went to their rooms and closed the door for privacy. We were there for a concert at the Gorge. It was about a 30 minute drive to the Gorge Concert. They have a large indoor pool area, we didn't swim because we didn't have time. But it looked clean and nice area. Over all for the price and the closeness to the Gorge we would stay there again. Next time we will remember our swim wear. There is a restaurant and a bar in the hotel. The restaurant is open limited hours. The bar had a band playing in the evening.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, there is only two floors but no elevator, so if you don't want to w...

We had a room on the 2nd floor, they don't have an elevator so beware if stairs are difficult for you. Our room needed updating, worn carpet, cheap furnishings, dirty curtains. The window was very dirty inside and out. The bathroom was very poor, there was a hot tamale candy on the floor, I wonder how long it had been there? Dirty light fixture in the bathroom too. On the plus side, bed sheets & towels were clean and the pillow was just to my comfort. We ate breakfast in their restaurant. For $8.00 they had a limited breakfast buffet and were out of several items. I cracked up when wait staff brought out some more food and had a guest hold the the lid for him while he replenished the eggs. They only had water or coffee, juice cost a $1.00 extra. I killed a wasp on my chair and tripped on a hole in the carpet. Needless to say We won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Our one-night stay was about average based on the other stops we made between NY and the San Juan Islands, WA. Although there is no breakfast included in the stay, there is a breakfast buffet that was reasonable enough to keep us from going to a donut shop. The location right off I-90 was very convenient. The rooms were a bit dated and could use upgrading, but there were not shabby by any measure. We were at the extreme back corner of the property and our WiFi was a bit sporadic, but I used the lobby with no problem. We had dinner in the adjoining restaurant that is operated by others and it was just fair.
