I stayed at the Oxford Inn in Yakima WA for 2 weekday nights while I attended a conference at the Convention Center. I chose the Oxford Inn due to the lush looking photos on their web site. The staff who registered me on the phone was friendly and helpful (as were the staff when I was there in person). The rates are reasonable. The motel is easy to find as it's just across the freeway from downtown on Yakima Ave. It is fairly small but is elegant, clean and bright. My room featured pine furniture, a TV amoire & DVD player, desk and nice chair (and free wireless and a convienent plug-in for your laptop), a cozy queen bed w/quality linens and 4 fluffy pillows, 2 end tables and plenty of lamps, and a upholstered easy chair & footrest. The room had a closet, ironing board & iron, hair dryer, small fridge & microwave, a 1-cup coffee maker and a clock radio. Of course it has air conditoning although I enjoyed the fresh air instead. The bathroom had 6" real tile floor & around the tub as well as built-in liquid soap, shampoo & conditioner--the product is natural & cruelty-free. You have the option of the staff not changing the sheets & towels if you want. The dark green carpet was plush and clean. The sliding glass door led to a private deck with 2 wrought iron chairs with a view of the Yakima River just yards from the motel. Next to the river is the Yakima Greenway Path, a 10-mile paved walking/biking trail. The Greenway is an adventure in itself! The motel features a small but clean outdoor pool and nearby hottub. It also has a very small indoor gym with 4 cardio machines and a Universal gym weight set. The gym has a TV, water fountain and towels. Next to the gym is a computer room in case you forget yours. There is also a laundry facility for guests. The motel features a continental breakfast from 6--9am with waffles, small bagels, dry cereal, packaged oatmeal, fresh and canned fruit, hard boiled eggs, toast, packaged cocoa, coffee, tea and juice. The parking is good and there are plenty of doors to the motel so you don't have to carry your luggage very far. Although I was on the job, I felt like I was on vacation and had a wonderful visit. The only drawbacks besides the small gym was that I-82 is fairly close so you can hear the traffic and the motel is not within walking distance from the Convention Center.
