Had a good time, and have stayed at the place many times over the last couple of years. I enjoy seeing new renovations everytime. Good, clean stay, and great staff! Will definitely come stay on my next visit to Central Washington University!

Dark, musty, old. Good Location right off the freeway and close to restaurants and gas station. Air conditioning worked well and the curtains appeared to be new. We were given the key to our room upon check in only to open up to a room that hasn't yet been cleaned. Given a choice, I would not chose to return.

My husband, 2 year old son, and I stayed in Ellensburg because my husband had an interview, and all the hotels were booked that we usually stay at. I came across the Cedars Inn and saw it had pretty good reviews, and it had rooms available, so we booked it. How sad and deceived we felt as we entered our little soap box of a room. We booked a "newly remodeled room" - newly remolded = tiny box TV (not the flat screen like the photos), horrible lighting (one light next to window, one light next to bed on same side as light above window, and light above sink). There wasn't dual lighting on both sides of the bed (like shown in the photos). The mattress cover kept slipping off throughout the night, exposing the whole mattress, the pillows were a weird texture and not comfortable at all. When you flush the toilet, it makes a loud weird sound (scared our son)! I am 5'10 - husband is 6'6 ... shower head = 5'7. The smell is old .... and it is just very disappointing. Don't be deceived ... the photos don't tell the correct story. "Hot Breakfast" = pastries and waffles .... no proteins at all. Just not good at all. We will stay in Cle Elum and travel in next time, if all the others are booked.

Room Tip: Room 120 has a loud toilet and horrible lighting .... I wouldn't pick any rooms at all.

Comfortable and clean motel. Staff provided excellent service! Breakfast was pretty good, waffle maker could have been in better condition, but everything else was fine. The only problem is the constant sound of semi-trucks. The motel is located by several truck stops, so you hear the trucks coming and going all the time!

We stayed at the Cedars Inn on CWU graduation weekend and decided to try the Cedars instead of our usual Hampton Inn because it was $50 cheaper/night. Just couldn't fathom spending almost $200/night for the Hampton in Ellensburg. The location was great and the place was clean. Recently updated. The gal at the front desk was less than accommodating with our requests, i.e. checking in before the check in time. She made the blanket statement that "check in is 3" when we asked if we could check in at 1:30. She finally looked at our rooms to see if they were available after we asked directly. I had another interaction with her over a blow dryer (they are not in all rooms!) and it confirmed that she was not front desk material. She is the face of the hotel and gave us an unfriendly view of the place. Besides getting blowdryers in ALL the rooms, I suggest getting a sheer curtain in addition to the blackout curtain on the first floor so that the curtain can be opened during the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the "lake" side of the hotel. The gal at the front desk told me that we...

Stayed overnight on my way to Seattle. Convenient and close to I-90. Lobby had nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly at check-in. Room was clean but a little dated. Bed was ok. Went to take a shower in the morning and found there was not a drop of hot water. Hotel wasn't that full so shouldn't have been due to everyone using water at the same time. Desk person's only comment was that they would have to call a plumber. No apology. No offer of accommodation or discount. Onsite breakfast was a bit sparse though the atmosphere was nice. I'll look for different accommodations on my next trip through. Great little coffee hut across the way.
