    « Clean and comfortable; friendly staff. »

    Very friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable rooms. They were serving pie on Thanksgiving which was a nice touch. Quick and easy express check out. I didn't use the pool this time but my family has. I ask for the 3rd floor as I don't want to see or hear the pets on the first two floors.

    « A middle of the road GREAT place to stop and rest. »

    As we pass the Ellensburg area we try to get stop at the Pasta Company for lunch or dinner. Now we can stop, enjoy wine and stay at the Best Western Plus for a quick swim and quiet, comfortable nights sleep. Thank you - a pleasant surprise!!

    Reserved a one bedroom suite (which is needed for my insomnia so my hubby can sleep as I'm wide awake) Spoke directly to the front desk to do so. Arrived to a handicap suite (one room...no separate bedroom) went and asked for the room we reserved...she realized we ARE in the wrong room, but they don't have one we want available!!! Took off $20 and said sorry (after claiming that i called the 1-800 number to reserve and I argued that I called the actual front desk to do so, which she then once again agreed to) Said every room has a half wall between bed and couch and hopefully that will help, well NOT THE HANDICAP ROOM! Went back to the room and just couldn't do it!!! There wasn't even a bathtub, rather a roll in shower stall. Went back and was placed in a regular room. She asked if we could get our luggage to the 3rd floor by ourselves if not she'd do it. We are not handicap (both were standing right there!). Regular room? Missing tile in bathroom and a "odd stain" on couch cushion. I give up!

    « Staff entered room despite 'do not disturb tag' and removed belongings »

    Left the hotel @ 8am to take care of business. Left the 'Do Not Disturb' hang tag on the outside door handle. Came back at 10:30 to gather my belongings and check out. Housekeeping had entered the room, propped the door open and removed half of my belongings from the room. I called out in the hall for staff 'Hello, hello!!' and the staff came and very un-apologetically said 'your stuff is down at the front desk'. When asked 'Why??' her answer was 'sometimes we start early'. I pointed out the 'do not disturb' sign as well as the time. It didn't seem to register with her. I went down to the front desk and they were apologetic but didn't immediately offer any type of action or compensation. I pointed out the legalities and some of the implications of leaving a guests room open to any passerby while that room was still supposed to be safely locked. The staff at the front desk said he would credit me $25 on the bill. When I arrived home and checked my account - I found that instead he charged me an additional $80. So - now I am further inconvenienced because I have to take the time to call the accounting department and get this straightened out - and I am sure I will have to wait days or weeks while it processes through their system. I am beyond disappointed and frankly pretty angry that this happened. I was already having a less than stellar visit - the carpet between the beds was wet, the area behind the nightstand was dirty - with an old discarded chip bag and lots of thick dust - and hadn't been cleaned for quite some time. This is where we all plug in our phone or laptop chargers while we work or use our phone in bed. The shower did not drain well, or at all. The water pressure was very low and inadequate for an efficient shower. There was a mystery spill or stain in the coat closet. The bathroom was minimally clean - around the edges of the sink, floor, tub wall were all dirty. I will not stay there again. I feel that their understanding of simple minimal hotel operating expectations was terribly low and certainly the sanctity of a guests room was not respected. The fact that the hotel charged me additional money when I complained about them entering my room was a retaliatory act. For the record - I was respectful when bringing it to the attention of the front desk staff. I will be sharing this with other friends who travel as a warning. I don't have any way to rationalize their actions.

    « hotel met all my expectations »

    I stay at this hotel when I come to visit my son at Central Washington University. The staff has always been exceptional (will add a comment further in the review) and the amenities are more than adequate. Free wifi, business center, indoor pool, breakfast plus fresh baked cookies, along with bananas, apples, oranges and coffee/tea are available 24/7. Breakfast starts at 6 a.m. I mentioned at check-in that I would be leaving earlier than that and was told that "to go" bags would be at the counter. The only hitch was when I checked out at 3:15 the to go bags weren't out. I mentioned it and the counter staff said they normally put them out at 5am. I was cool with that, I had hoped he would have stepped up and offered to either make one up or something along those lines. That was the difference between a 4 star and a 5 star review. Nice big rooms, spotless bathroom and if you need miscellaneous toiletries they can be had gratis at the front desk! I will definitely stay again.

    « Big Ol boy »

    No worries if your a big Ol boy, the towels are normal size... This has to do with another post I made on another Motel in Ellensburg. The room was really nice and very roomy. Fantastic shower. Breakfast was normal for a continental. The pool look real appealing but didn't have a chance to try it out. Nice place to stay this time of year as it is priced reasonable. Beware staying there in the summer, they will try and get all your money.

    « Quick overnighter, but would have enjoyed longer! »

    The sausage at the breakfast wasn't very good, but otherwise the pool, hot tub, and rooms were clean and inviting. I loved that they had "clean remotes" for the TV's. It shows they emphasize a clean stay. It was a real pleasure to stay here.

    « Great place to stay »

    The hotel is newer and very clean. They have a great complimentary breakfast set up with a lot of yummy choices. The staff was nice and friendly and the hotel is close to the freeway and to all the neat shops and restaurants in town. We will definitely stay again!

    « Great Hotel, Amazing Staff, Great Location »

    Had a great time here. The room was in perfect condition with all stated amenities. Breakfast was great. But by far my favorite part of my stay was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful...noticeably more than other hotels I have stayed in. Highly recommend!!!

    Convenient location and personable receptionist. Comfortably furnished rooms and nice breakfast room with nice variety foods. A great pool and exercise room. Our room was a little stuffy smelling but we were able to open a window.

    « Exceptional Staff »

    Refreshing to engage with staff who really seem to enjoy their job & care about the customer. All super friendly & went above & beyond to accommodate our needs & then some. Super clean & uber comfortable beds! Unfortunate "train noise/horn" in the middle of night only down side since it woke us up a couple times since we're light sleepers.

    « Quiet location »

    This hotel is located close to I-90, but not so close to get road noise. The hotel is nicely decorated and the staff is helpful and kind. Nice continental breakfast, swimming pool and hot tub. Rooms are clean and super quiet.

    « Awesome, possibly the best BW of hundreds I've visited »

    Room was clean, breakfast was outstanding, let me park my bike under the canopy so it didn't get rained on and stellar staff. Bed was cozy and hot tub and dry sauna really appreciated after a cold, wet ride through the pass.

    « Beware hay trucks at 6:00 am »

    Comfortable room; plenty of space for couple, pet and ADA support equipment. Comfortable bed for two plus med-small doodle dog. Road noise associated with nearby export hay facility trucks not so good at 6:30 am. Great park for dog exercise within walking distance. Downtown (such as it is) eats a short drive away.

    5
    « Overall Consistancy »

    Facility is consistently clean. Recent upgrades to the lobby area, artwork on each floor, and breakfast area are a plus. Carpets were recently shampooed in all rooms and corridors. The location is just far enough from the main street for reduced road noise yet, close enough for access to freeway and sites in town.

    « Fast, clean, friendly »

    Easy access from the highway, very friendly desk staff, clean, comfy room, nice amenities. Good wifi. Decent bed, lots of pillows. Didn't try the breakfast, but the cookies at the front desk were excellent.

    « best reception ever! »

    You will definitely have trouble finding anyone who is more welcoming and helpful. A definite asset to the hotel. He was able to recommend a great place to eat, and even convinced me to have a warm cookie, when I was already full. Great cookies by the way

    « A good stop over »

    24 hour exercise room and pool for guests over 21! Friendly staff and comfortable room. The breakfast was extra filling and welcoming. We will remember this as a good site to return to when traveling through Washington.

    « Fantastic Stay in Ellensburg, WA »

    One of the nicest best Western's I have stayed in. The young gentleman at the front desk was awesome. Very helpful with all our needs. Including change for the laundry, assistance with the computer and coupons for dinner. Great find after a long day on the road!

    « Great overnight stop »

    Driving from W.Canada to Oregon coast, made this our O/N stop. Modern clean quiet comfortable room at a great rate. Front desk staff very welcoming with great advise of dining opportunities in Ellensburg. Everyone so friendly and welcoming to guests from N of the 49th.

    « Basic hotel priced a little high... »

    This was a Best Western Plus and I'm not really sure what the plus gives you. This was your basic hotel with a pool and a continental breakfast. Not much more than that and sits right on the train tracks. I have not stayed anywhere else in Ellensburg but might look elsewhere next time or try to get a little further out of the city... If I was to price the room we stayed in I would say it was worth 120 - 150 and not 200 per night.

    « One night Stay »

    We were in town for family. It was a nice, clean, and friendly quick stop. Good location near the Freeway for in and out. Not far from downtown and the college as well. We had a mini-suite and had our dog. We all fit nicely.

    « Ellensburg Best Western »

    « Wonderful Best Western, love, love!! »

    This is one of the cleanest, well run BW I have ever stayed in. The gentlemen at the front desk was phenomenal. He works so hard to make sure guests are comfortable and happy to be here.I have been staying at this particular BW for several years, and the front desk is always gracious. The pool is clean. A 5 star breakfast, coffee, cookies in afternoon. Fresh apples, oranges, pears for snacks. Whew! Lovely reception and business areas.Beautiful linens on very comfy beds. Wow. Every BW should take a lesson or two from this hotel. Thank you for a great stay!

    « Ellensburg »

    I have always enjoyed Ellensburg and have spent many nights here in the past. The Best Western Hotel was not built when I was traveling through here. I'm glad I had a chance to stay here, if only for one night. I will happily return if the occasion arises. Two people stuck out, although I really did not get names. The General Manager was friendly and interesting. The afternoon desk attendant (Tim, I think) was good.

    « Comfortable beds and friendly staff, BUT »

    The beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and accommodating and the room looked clean, but the shower valve lever and the shower head were so stiff that my wife couldn't move them and the motel is right next to the railroad tracks; long (100+ car) trains come by every couple of hours (at most), around the clock, blowing their horns repeatedly; so if you want quiet to sleep, forget it. The ?breakfast? is typical of today's motels, the worst kind of corporate packaged junk, which everyone knows is making Americans fat and sick: additives, emulsifiers, stabilizers, dyes, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, CAFO meats, et cetera; and it tastes just like it sounds.

    « Wonderful little hotel »

    We stayed here during our trip through Washington and it was just perfect for us. It had a full kitchen, and very comfortable bed. The check in was very pleasant as the check out. Not terribly busy. The breakfast was good.

    « Quiet One Night Road Trip Stay »

    The hotel has easy access to I-90, pet friendly first floor with a safe area in the back to walk your pet. Close to gas station and restaurant. Room was quiet and had a microwave and refrigerator/freezer.

    « Waiting for escrow to close »

    My husband and I stayed here for 27 nights while we waited for our ranch purchase to close escrow here. 27 nights in any hotel is eye opening. The very best thing about this Best Western is the people that run it and the people that work there. They are some of the kindest, hardest working people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The rooms are clean and spacious, the pool & hot tub were a God send, and after 27 nights you know how often things get cleaned and so forth. It's a clean pool and hottub. Thank you Josh, David, Gina, Leanne, Alan, the gorgeous head housekeeper, and everyone else. I am having the thank you party once I take a 30 day nap. Hearts. Marguerite

    « Very nice stay . . . »

    Stayed overnight in Ellensburg while visiting great niece at CWU - found this hotel to be very nice for our short visit. Front desk was helpful and informative about the area (restaurant recommendation, etc); room was above average size and the king bed was great! Breakfast the next morning had all the basics - hot & cold items. Quick access to the Interstate and short drive to restaurants & the university campus. Will probably stay here the next time we are in town.

    « Great place to stay.. »

    We stay here 3-4 times every Fall, because our grandson plays football at the local college. Great rooms, friendly staff, and a good breakfast before heading home on Sunday mornings. The hotel is close to all restaurants, has WiFi, but they have had an ongoing issue with their cable TV programming, so we can't get certain major channels..( Not the hotels fault), just annoying..

    5
    « Wondeful stay »

    This hotel is such a good stay and experience for your money. The complimentary breakfast featuring hot and cold items is also so nice. I always enjoy my time at the Best Western and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. The level of service (no matter what city/state), is always uniform and exceptional.

    « Do not stay in a room facing railroad!! »

    Rated this hotel a 3 only because of the room assigned to us. Other than that I would give it a four or 4.5 for the price. If you have a choice, choose a room opposite train side of hotel. Should have thought to use room fan to help block out train sounds which most Ellensburg hotels need to deal with. The train runs right through town and this hotel is within 1/8th of a mile, has a very loud whistle, and runs every two hours all night long. In addition, avoid room 313 which has a large spotlight shining right at the room window from a rooftop a couple yards below. Hotel management said they are looking into making appropriate changes but until they do I would not recommend this room. In fact we checked in at 3 PM and wondered why we were assigned that room at all. On the positive side the rooms are clean, lovely and comfortable as is the entire hotel. The staff could not be more accommodating or friendly so it is a shame that a good nights sleep was not part of our stay. breakfast was good as well.

    « Decent hotel- less than friendly staff. »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus Ellensburg on Thursday, September 15th. We had made reservations ahead of time. We were given a room close to the check-in desk and lobby restrooms. We requested a room on the second floor which they were very rude about our request for a change.. The room (#108) had very stained carpet near the door (pet friendly hotel- and pets are given rooms on the first floor only. Also very close to the train tracks- be aware if you are a light sleeper- the train horn will startle you at 2:30 AM. Check out process asks that you call front desk and leave the keys in the room- it would be helpful if the front desk staff seemed at least half-way friendly when answering the call.

    « Good stop on a road trip. »

    Standard BW plus hotel on the motel strip in Ellensburg. Large room, comfortable beds, fridge and microwave all for a decent price. Breakfast included, with a good variety of hot and cold items compared to many hotel chains' "free breakfast". Good WiFi. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay again if in the area.

    « Management and Staff Rock! »

    Rooms were large and clean and building fairly new. A big plus was that even though the hotel was full, we did not hear any noise. No showers, voices, etc. It was great! The staff and management were extremely friendly although they were busy, and helped us with a problem when we had double booked. On top of that, they had excellent suggestions for meals and events. I plan to visit Ellensburg frequently and will be happy to stay at this hotel!

    « Comfortable »

    Great place for the family. Stayed here while touring colleges with my daughters and this was very comfortable. Water pressure could have been better and eggs not so great but the rest of the food was good and the room was more than comfortable. We will stay here again if the girls decide to go to school here.

    « Convenient, big rooms, good amenities and value »

    We have stayed here twice in the past year and enjoyed the convenience of the hotel when visiting or driving through Ellensburg, Washington. The rooms are mini-suites and are clean and spacious. The amenities we greatly appreciate are the fitness room, pool, free breakfast, free coffee/fruit/cookies, and free parking. Overall a very nice place to stay.

    « Very nice property »

    We originally planned to stay here for three nights but that got extended to five. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, as well as convenient to the Kittitas Valley Hospital. Staff was excellent. There's a pool and work out room. Breakfast was okay, but could use more in the way of fruit choices. They were unusually generous with the in-room coffee supply. Had heard that train noises could be a problem but that was minimal. Will definitely stay here again.

    « Excellent Value in the University Town! »

    We were delighted to find this comfortable, clean, quiet spot with very friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary breakfast was easily the best we have had and we travel frequently. Indoor swimming 24/7 for travelers who need to be refreshed. Close to fast food dining as well as BBQ oriented places. Retail shopping not far away either. Well worth your consideration!

    Occasionally I find myself tired and in need of a reliably clean and comfortable hotel in the Ellensburg area. This Best Western has been my go-to hotel for years. Staff is always attentive, the rooms are well-appointed, clean and quiet, and the Internet works very well.

    This is a quiet hotel. We didn't use all of the services but those we did were superb. It was nice to sleep in a firm bed. We had breakfast and I loved making my own waffle. The hotel recommended the restaurant next door and it was VERY good.

    « Escape from the Rain »

    I booked this hotel as I drove up -- it as a last minute decision to get out of the rain and clean up some very wet gear. I had been camping in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and enjoyed two days of rain...and very much needed a dry place to clean up and get sorted. This hotel was perfect! Upsides: huge room with kitchen - ideal for rinsing and then laying out all my gear to dry, hot tub, make-your-own-waffles! Downsides: no cable (to watch the Olympics), runny eggs, generic setting that in parts could use a deep clean (dust in the corners!) Overall: super convenient if average

    « As always ~ a great stay! »

    This is a lovely hotel. The room was especially nice with a little sitting area and it was so very clean. I have stayed in Best Westerns before and you cannot beat the great reputation of a great hotel. Breakfast comes with your stay and it is very good!

    « Elegant Hotel w/Copacetic Service »

    This Best Western was one of the best I've visited in terms of ambiance and décor. It has a very nice lobby area with a big breakfast hall serving omelets made to order, along with a truly nutritious breakfast (something commonly difficult for vegetarians to find in complimentary breakfasts). The suite was very spacious, with a private whirlpool, and we were very grateful for the complimentary bottle of sparkling cider. Most everything about this hotel was exceptional. The spirit of service, on the other hand, was noticeably lacking which was very surprising because this was always consistent throughout with Best Western. There was nothing overly wrong with the service, there was simply no spirit in it. An example is upon checking out, I was not asked how my stay was. This was disappointing because I wanted to express my gratitude for the complimentary bottle of cider and share my joy with how much we liked the suite and loved the breakfast. This was just one example of the lack of spirit of service, which we encountered from all of the staff (check-in, breakfast, check-out).

    « Won't stay there again »

    I would not stay at this hotel again. Thought it was overpriced for the location, nothing around the area but industrial. Close to the interstate so easy on and off. If there is a next time I am in the area I will travel father to find a different hotel. The breakfast area was fairly clean but not very well stocked and for the first 5 minutes or so no attendant was in the area. Slow to restock the breakfast items like the scrambled eggs and biscuits. Have to say was not at all impressed.

    « Wonderful Hotel! »

    This was the second or third time I have stayed in this hotel and it is such a nice place. The walls are thick so you can't hear the sound of the people around you. The room was clean and spacious. We did notice that the maid forgot to change out the last persons wet towel but it was behind the door so I can understand that. Everyone at the front counter was friendly and it was a very quick check in. The pool is open 24 hours!! I have to say that I was probably the best thing about our stay. We stayed in the King Suite Jacuzzi room and it was an amazing room at an AWESOME rate (134.99) during the Jazz in the Valley Festival. As long as you book somewhat far ahead you can get great rates. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel. The only thing I would suggest for the management is if they could somehow make the parking lot bigger. We had to park out in the gravel next to the hotel at one point because the parking lot was PACKED. I don't blame them though since this last weekend was probably one of the busiest that Ellensburg sees during the summer. Overall I would say this hotel is Excellent!! I highly recommend it. We're actually thinking of coming back soon just for the fun of it!

    « High price, poor quality room »

    I don't know how this hotel gets such high ratings. We were told we would have a suite with a separate living room for $260 for a single night. We got a standard room with a dirty bathtub that would not drain. The window would not open because the latch was broken. We received a $60 discount due to these issues. We stayed the previous night at the c'mon inn in Bozeman MT and for $169 per night we had a beautiful room with a separate living room and a functional bathtub and window. Do not stay at this best western. Get a room at the Super 8 save money and have a better experience.

    This is my 4th or 5th hotel in Ellensburg and hands down the winner to date in terms of room, staff and even breakfast buffet! many of the others are on this strip of road as you jump off I90, the BW has the added feature that it is down a side road, "off the main drag" which cushions it from both the road noise and the secondary sounds of I90 truck traffic. There is the 6 a.m. train that runs through but I can't blame the hotel for that and basically was able to roll over after the rumble and whistle ended. I got a suite room, big enough for 4 (double bed, pull out couch). Almost a full kitchen, and two tvs. Bathroom, very clean, recently redone and nice amenities for a BW chain hotel. Plenty of towels a big plus. Staff are super friendly, very helpful and eager to answer any questions. Breakfast buffet was fully stocked, with a great selection and some healthy alternative choices. Endless coffee, a plus. Would repeat my stay. I did pick a busy weekend to stay so the price/value was not what it might have been at another summer weekend. Probably a 30% bump on the usual rate but who can blame then. Still a good value for the restful couple of nights! I've saved money elsewhere and slept fitfully and at the end of the day, sleep is worth a couple more bucks!

    This hotel was a pleasure to stay at. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast bar had a variety of foods and the staff kept the food refilled and the dining room clean. We will be back.

    « Substandard clenaliness, poor hygenic standards »

    I traveled on business and planned to stay at the Best Western Ellensburg for 4 nights. I ended up checking out early as I could not tolerate the smell, hair and dirt in the bathroom. At the end of July there is a Jazz festival in Ellensburg, therefore the hotel was at high capacity and the rates were sky high. Rates changed daily but I was taken aback by a rate of 270$ per night. Usual average would be around 140$. The front desk staff was friendly. The hotel seemed to have good amenities, including a pool, hot tub and outside barbeque. The breakfast was a nice bonus. The room was small; the A/C worked well; the bed was reasonably comfortable. The cleanliness was the worst I have ever experienced in a hotel. Perhaps I am fortunate that I have never stayed at low end hotels and motels; I considered Best Western as a mid-range, basic hotel similar to Hilton Garden Inns or Marriott Fairfield Inns. So, my expectations regarding cleanliness were not as high as standards for 4-5 star hotels. Either way, I significantly overestimated.... This is how my room/bathroom was: Blonde long hair was everywhere in the room, there were little paper pieces and dirt deposits visible on the carpet, indicating that no vacuuming was done after the previous guests left. The bathroom had a musty, moldy smell, the sink and tub appeared with a matte film such as un-cleaned soap and toothpaste layers. There was no sign of bathroom cleaner use anywhere in the bathroom. Wiping with water might have happened but it seemed no detergent was used in a bathroom for a long while. There were all types of hairs in the bathroom as well. Being on a short business trip I did not have much flexibility but I checked out early as I just had to have a clean shower elsewhere. I believe that the conditions I saw were beyond what you could fix requesting housekeeping to clean the room/bathroom. The smell would have stayed either way and I was disgusted.

    « Great Facility with wonderful staff »

    Always looking for a stop midway between our home in Sequim and Boise where we travel frequently. This time decided to try the Best Western Plus primarily because it was Pet friendly. What a wonderful facility. The room was clean and very comfortable. The facility's pool was large enough for some simple mini-lap swimming, a plus. The internet speed was more than adequate allowing me to stream YouTube videos without delays. Not something often seen in hotels these days. All in all a wonderful stay, We will stay there again.

    « Comfy & Cozy »

    My sister-in-law chose this hotel for us as it was pet friendly. We were in town to attend her son's wedding reception. We found the experience of the hotel to be comfortable and enjoyable. It was a bit pricey for what we expected to pay in Ellensburg but for one night of pleasure, we were pleasantly surprised.

    « Nice place for overnight or a few days »

    Very comfortable room and facility. It is probably the closest hotel to the highway, but we had no problem with road noise. Also, it was very quiet inside. We were on the second floor and couldn't hear the people above us.

    « Friendly staff, nice room »

    The front desk person (David) was very friendly and helpful. He suggested many places for us to eat. Our room was great. We had a double queen bed suite. The beds have pillow tops and were very comfortable. The room was clean and everything was in working order. The only minus was that we were on the 2nd floor and looked out at the top of the pool building and air conditioning units. However, it wasn't a big deal to us. The complimentary breakfast has a good variety of foods. Overall it was a great stay.

    « Nice room, friendly staff »

    Location is just off the road with all of the chain hotels and restaurants at the edge of Ellensburg. The suite we had was nice, but note that the sofa in the second room of the suites is not a pull out sofa bed, so we could not have the loud snorer in our group in a separate room as we had hoped. Internet access froze within two minutes each of the three times I logged on, so I gave up on that too. Pluses and minuses, but overall it was clean and comfortable.

    Our room was clean and the hotel was nice and safe. The front desk person was very nice and helpful when we check in. Told us about a discount if we ate at the Roadhouse next door. Breakfast was nice and had many choices. However the room did have a few issues; the TV did not work, and the tub did not drain well and shower head needs to be replaced,. Sprayed every where. Internet worked great.

    « Dirty and Rude »

    When we arrived, we were greeted by someone on the phone who would not put her call on hold. Next, we find hair on the bathroom floor and when we call about it, the front desk person kind of whines and says well, she is not a housekeeper but she will try. This was a waste. When we returned to check it, still hair. So we had to clean it ourselves! Check-out, again front desk person on the phone, unavailable to help us for a while. Then, the topper is, we left an item in the room and called a few times for them to locate it, to no avail. We finally talked to Josh; oh boy! I have never had the pleasure of dealing with a ruder hotel worker! He refused to acknowledge that perhaps our item was thrown away or taken since they could not locate it. I think he was implying that I had it! Yes, I do enjoy calling hotels and complaining about missing things just for the adrenaline rush. Oh man, do yourself a favor and stay at the Holiday Inn or something.

    « Be bopping around Washington »

    This Best Western hits the mark. Friendly staff, clean rooms, convenient location, nice parking lot, and a great breakfast. The breakfast follows the standard but adds those special touches such as diced ham, onions and cheese to add to your eggs and several berry medleys to add to your waffle. Very nice stay.

    « Does Most of the Basics Well... »

    Nice, well-kept property with above average lobby ambiance and furnishings. Stayed in basic non-smoking king-bed room (vs. King Suite) which was comfortable. Room had low-wall divider between couch sitting area & the bed Also included was microwave & small, clean refrigerator. Bathroom was not small, but also not spacious. Shower is tub-combo with cloth shower curtain. Wifi was good - not overly responsive but adequate. Breakfast offered nice breath of food options including scrambled eggs and a meat (bacon) which is oddly missing at other competing hotels (like the nearby Hampton Inn). However, great tasting, constantly hot coffee with choice of robust, medium or light. Also, nice warm cookies presented in evenings. Hotel is just off I-90 & Canyon Road - & about mile & half from downtown Ellensburg. Starbucks less than 1/4 mile away. Nice feature was wider than normal parking spaces. Fitness room is very basic & subjected to same humidity rising from adjacent pool area. Only nagging issue was an electronic card-key that either constantly faltered or failed. Had to have it rekeyed twice over night stay...

    « a nice hotel--good bed--but poorly jetted spa tub »

    The king bed was awesome! The staff were very friendly and helpful, even went the extra mile to make us fresh cookies--wow!! but we could have used to sofa to be a pull out bed and it wasn't. Also, the jetted spa tub was highly marginal--very weak jets.

    This hotel was very clean. The front desk staff was helpful once they showed up. The front desk was empty when we arrived. Had to wait about 10 min. For someone to show up. After a long trip we were tired and just wanted to check in. We were given a room right next to the elevator which was noisy. The room itself was very comfortable and the breakfast was ok.

    It was a friendly front desk, clean & comfortable rooms, and great location. Very handy having a microwave & small refrigerator in the room. There were plenty of places to catch a bite nearby, also, the Best Western breakfast was very good. We would definitely stay here again In town we enjoyed the Saturday street market and shops. There's a Fred Meyer very close for any needs that may arise.

    My son and I stayed three nights,we went to the Wild Horse Wind And Solar Facility. The Room was one of the Cleanest Doggy room I have stayed in.My Chihuahua even liked it. Staff was very nice and they had twenty four hour coffee and Cookies in the evening. The room was very nice.We were able to get rooms close together as my son took my Chihuahua out in the morning to do her thing.Didn't use the pool or hot tube Only Con is that the pillows were uncomfortable to short and to fat. I forgot to bring my own.

    « Overnight stay »

    My husband had points for Econo Lodge, we checked in and stayed for about 10 minutes, just long enough for him to call about other rooms in the area. If you can't get a room at the Best Western or the Hampton, sleep in your car or camp out. We were lucky enough to get a room at the Best Western. The suite was super clean, well stocked with towels, pillows etc. The room also had a normal refrigerator, it also had a stove, microwave, pots, pans, dishes etc. They breakfast area is immaculate, there's a 24 hour pool, but after 10 p.m. it's basically quiet time, which is great. There's a laundry room, gym and outdoor grills if you are inclined to bar-b-que. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and so helpful. We will definitely go there again.

    « OK for the price »

    Price and comfort were average and not at all bad. Staff was friendly and the free breakfast was great with a good amount of options. Perhaps we just caught them at a bad time. The night check in clerk looked extremely disheveled and almost appeared drunk and our room was not clean. Dirty dishes were still in the dishwasher of the kitchenette area and bathroom items were not restocked.

    « Affordable hotel on the threshold of I-90 »

    Clean affordable hotel near I-90 in Ellensburg. The breakfast is of a Safeway style brand, which works for some people, but we chose to eat out elsewhere. The beds and pillows made for a sound sleep. I-90 is far enough away so you don't get woken up by the traffic, depending on your hearing. We were on family business, and we were on a budget, so we selected this hotel because we know what to expect from the chain.

    I've stayed at this Best Wesern multiple times now and always have had positive experiences. The hotel is off the main street and further away from the other hotels (a few blocks) - that are by the freeway, so this is a great location and quieter. Still centerally located. I take clienets here, for my bird photograph workshops! The pool always looks inviting, but I've never used it. Too many birds, not enough time.

    We have been staying at this hotel for several years and have always been totally pleased.

We recommend this hotel to anyone going to the area or even as a stop before heading out to further areas in Eastern Washington.

    « Excellent! »

    I loved my room, especially the bed... it was so cozy! I wish I could take it home with me. The pillows and sheets smelled so good... it was like sleeping on a cloud. My window looked out West, so the sunset was absolutely gorgeous! The location was great; close to the freeway so close to a bunch of restaurants, gas stations, etc. The shower was a little weird how it curved. It curved to the point that it hurt my ankles just standing there. Odd.

    « Staff is nice! »

    Common theme in the other reviews (Staff is nice). Very true but lacking elsewhere. Pros - friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, breakfast was good and plentiful. The staff person kept the breakfast area very clean and stocked continually. Good variety of food - waffles, eggs, sausage, breads, fruit, cereal, and more! Staff was quick to respond to issues. Hot tub was nice. Happy to be able to use 24 hours . Con - our room smelled like smoke. They figured someone was smoking on our floor the night before we got there and now they know what room it was! Even though they sprayed it (and we did as well) it still smelled the whole time. Still have a headache from it (and my husband's sinuses are messed up now). Bed was semi comfortable. Mattress is ready to be replaced. Bathroom sink didn't drain well. We will stay here again as we like it. One of 2 hotels we like in Ellensburg. Easy walk to Roadhouse Grill next door. Everything we complained about can be fixed.

    « Comfortable room and clean! »

    A bit noisy with trains but nice amenities. Bring your own coffee mug unless you can do with paper cups! Nice pool and spa. We asked for a 3rd floor room toward the back to avoid noise of other clients and traffic, but still had slamming-door affect. Roomy bathroom with shower/tub. Close to restaurants, tourist attractions, church, and college. Friendly staff.

    « Not as good as previously. »

    We have stayed at this property before. It was built only 2-3 years ago, so is generally in good condition. This time, however, we were given a room overlooking the roof over the entryway. It held some major fans and other equipment, which periodically made noise. Also there was no view at all. Someone had already bent the window screen so bugs might be an issue if the window were left open. We arrived at 3 pm and had reservations, so I was mystified as to why we were given this sort of room. Also, although this room was on the 2nd floor, I found animal food on the rug. I asked about this at the front desk. They weren't sure if the room was normally used for people with pets or not.

    « Convenient »

    The staff was friendly. Our room was clean. The hotel was conveniently located to access the Interstate as we were just passing through. Our room was quiet and we did not hear a single traffic noise. Although our room was directly under their sign with the light shining in our room that lit the sign, we were able to use a book to hold the blackout curtains closed for the night and slept well. The bed was comfortable and the pool area was clean. There is a restaurant just across the parking lot and small empty lot which made getting something to eat easy. Free wifi to access with username and password they give you upon check-in worked well.

    « Business Stay »

    This hotel was clean, the staff was kind and efficient, the bed was comfortable, the elevator was a bit noisy but didn't keep me awake. Breakfast wasn't stellar, but satisfying and there were options to grab and go which I appreciated. They seemed to cater to those with dietary restrictions and I noticed the almond milk and various types and flavors of yogurt. Overall, I'd recommend this hotel for the price and I'd stay again for business.

    « ADVICE: Ask for a room on the back side of the Hotel »

    The room was nearly immaculate, spacious and attractive. Breakfast was great and breakfast room was large and clean. The entire place and the pool was tasteful and pleasing. HOWEVER: I recommend trying to reserve a room on the backside of the hotel. Our family was unable to sleep on the comfortable mattresses due to the mass amount of nighttime light poring in through the very nice thick curtains. I don't know what to say. The hotel's own lights as well as a plethora of lights extending into the distance pored through every crack and seam. I'd say we felt as if a UFO was landing outside our window all night long....or as if it was perpetually 6:45 am....all night long. Please consider adding an extra shade that is inserted in the window case? Other pros and cons: Our sink drain was slow and the bathroom light switches were "slow"--and the bathroom light switch plates were either grimy or stained. Everything else was very, very nice. The front desk clerks were SO friendly and helpful. I'd say that was better than most places we have stayed, and we sometimes travel a lot.

    « Nice hotel--clean rooms and friendly staff--Good breakfast--Way too much light in room at night. »

    Staff at this hotel were excellent and very helpful. Breakfast was good and presented very nicely as well. Would ask for a different location of room if i were to stay there again as believe the air conditioning unit was on the rooftop just at the end of the hall from our room. if the noise of a motor was not the air the staff should look into what motor was running from 10 pm on at night.

    After my husband completed a local 50K run we were going to camp, but at the last minute decided to stay in a hotel (he was very sore and tired, and suddenly roughing it sounded-well, rough). There were still a few rooms available here, so we jumped on it. We very much enjoyed the friendly staff, a quiet nights sleep on a comfortable bed, excellent breakfast (free with room), and very clean pool and hot tub. Considering it was last minute, and they were almost full, the price was still reasonable with our AAA discount. We will be back!

    « Great Hotel and Friendly Staff »

    Stayed here for one night while visiting Central Washington U. Had a family of four with 17 and 12 year old boys and stayed in a double queen. Staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast included eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit and yogurt, bagels and cereal. Hotel was clean and we used the pool and spa. Only comment I have is we had a corner room on the main street that was a little noisy. If you get the back side of the hotel it is probably much quieter. We would definitely stay there again.

    « Second Stay - LIKE! »

    This is pricey compared to other facilities in the area but has a great breakfast with THE CLEANEST breakfast room I've ever seen (and a wonderful young woman cleaning every surface of every table and chair - so I know why it looks and smells like clean.) Near the highways but far enough off to avoid noise. Easy walk to a good restaurant. Close to some really lovely park areas and the red-wing blackbirds were very active in the tiny wetland behind. Nice grass. Outdoor sink area. Good service at the desk (they were full but still very nice to the folks they turned away.) When I had a key-card problem the front desk staff provided a cleaner card I could use in the door to improve the reliability of the key-card and he still cut a fresh key-card so I wouldn't have to make another trip to the front desk. He was busy but this saved both of us time and frustration. Good call. Like having my dog welcomed. Price for dog was appropriate. To get an excellent rating this hotel needs to do a really thorough hallway cleaning. There is an "armpit" smell in the hallways which is either the cleaning solutions or the lack of them. It is always there so it isn't about the kind of folks staying there. At this price I shouldn't be holding my nose to get to the breakfast or front desk areas.

    « Just one night and had everything I needed »

    Just traveling through and wanted a 1) safe, 2) conveniently located off I-90, 3) comfy, 5) room that has never had pets, 6 )inexpensive place to stay. It was all. The bed was super comfy. The rate of $98 was acceptable. Excellent location and not only safe but quiet. A nice surprise was the breakfast. Yes, it had the usual powder eggs and waffle iron, but also had sausage and a berry compote for the waffle and several selections of coffee (I like it mild, my husband likes it strong). I'm giving it a 5 star for it had everything I was wanting. There was a guy using the bar-b-que, kids swimming in the pool, and plenty of parking for big cars. The internet was good, too.

    « short and sweet »

    The only problem we have with the facility is the fact that the bathtubs are rounded instead of flat and it makes it extremely difficult to stand in them and keep your balance. Lighting in rooms are somewhat lacking also, but we will stay there again.

    We stayed for 1 night at this Best Western. The room was comfortable and clean. There was a king size bed, love seat, flat screen TV, alarm clock, fridge, and microwave in the room that I stayed in. Complimentary toiletries in the bathroom. Towels were thicker. The breakfast was standard. They had a waffle maker, sausage patties, diced ham, scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, gravy for biscuits,assortment of cold cereal, yogurt, breads, fruit, milk, juice, coffee, hot chocolate, and tea. There was a small swimming pool, which we did not get a chance to use. The staff were friendly. I would stay here again if the opportunity presented itself.

    We travel form Walla Walla Wa to Canada at least once a month. We stop in Ellensburg on a regular basis. We have stayed at four other motels in town and have not been as happy as we are staying at Lincoln Inn Suites. You might save a couple of dollars staying at the others but we feel the quality of the bed and the room is worth it. Always been treated with kind professional help at front desk. We will be back. It is also nice that just across the tracks there is a nice restaurant to get a good meal.

    Breakfast was the best feature of the hotel. Every thing was brought in small portions and kept fresh. The offerings were: make your own waffle; sausage; scrambled eggs; yoghurts of various flavors, biscuits and gravy; and the usual sweet rolls and cereals. The room was a different story. VERY DIM CFLs in every place they could be used. It was like trying to shave by candlelight. My wife had to give up and take a hand mirror to the window to do her makeup (which is very slight). A good sleep otherwise.

    If you are an animal lover, do not give this hotel your money. They do not list their pet policy does not include cats. The manager Kim literally turned us out in the snow and cold with no place to stay because she would not allow our 6 lb short hair declawed cat in the room. I booked this reservation a month ago for a 1 week stay. Read there hotel website pet policy. No where does it say no cats. We just drove 4 hours scary icy road conditions to now continue on in the dark to look for a place to stay. I hope Kim the manager has a good night sleep tonight knowing we are risking our lives on the road tonight because of your unfair pet policy...and by the way if you have 2 80lb hairy dogs those are just fine In their hotel.

    We recently stayed overnight in Ellensburg and chose the Lincoln Inn. The surroundings were pleasant and the hotel was very quiet as it is not in close proximity to the freeway.

    There were a few areas where this hotel was lacking but overall stay was pretty good. Broken drink machine disappointed and there was a dirty filter in the hot tub which we weren't aware of until after bathing(!). Brought it to the managers attention and no comps were given. I might stay in another hotel if I ever had to stay in Ellensburg again.

    The toilet was not thoroughly cleaned. The bathroom floor grout is black except under the sink (an indicator it needs to be scrubbed). If needed, I would not have been able to keep the room I was in for an extra night--fortunately I didn't need to stay. If I'd had to pack, check out and check in to another room, I would have looked for other accommodations. Hotel stays have gotten very expensive in the last couple of years.

    Went to Priceline and did the "pick your price" option. All websites wanted $103 but with pick your price I got the room for $70. Honestly it was worth more! It was extremely clean, king bed, sofa and all of the other normal amenities. The girl at the front desk was awesome and friendly.

    « Good location, comfortable room. »

    We spent 2 nights at this hotel & had mixed feelings due to both good & bad experiences. After the first night, we notified the desk staff that the shower head did not work properly & that the tub drained very slowly. Those things were fixed while we were out for the day so were were pleased with that but we were disappointed that the cleaning staff did not fully clean our room - bed was not made, toiletries were not replenished, bathroom not cleaned. Also, one of the three people we we encountered at the desk (the male) was very bad customer-service-wise. When I said "good morning, how are you?" he replied very sarcastically "I'm here." He also did not want to hear about the shower & tub problems...I waited until his female colleague (Brandy, I think) came out & I spoke with her, She had the problems taken care of. Katy, who checked us in, is WONDERFUL! She was very friendly & helpful.

    This is a nice hotel with a great breakfast and we have stayed here at other times. However, the room that they put us in (with our dog) should of been destroyed. Dog urine/poop spots were everywhere even on the desk chair. They think that $5.00 off our bill was fair.....really?

    Could have been better, however I had to stay in a handicap room as it was all that was available. The fixtures ie the toilet paper backing plate (very dirty) and the bathtub drain (chipped missing enamel) needs looking after. Being a Best western PLUS I expected better. Loved the roof top view as well. Overall it was a place to sleep (bed was good). Breakfast could be better raw bacon and greasy.

    « Amazing customer service! »

    This is a nice looking hotel tucked just off the freeway, but what stood out to us was the amazing customer service. When our card key wouldn't work we were given a card cleaner and a new key. After it didn't work again the same front desk staff gave us a new one and kept it light and funny. When I asked for plates and a fork afterwards he opened he breakfast section to retrieve one for me. In the morning when I asked if there were any gluten-free options the front desk gal said that there was not, but another staff emerged from the office and offered to show me the ingredients for each item. She had actually made a binder with the ingredient and nutrition information from each of the packages and showed me each one. The eggs and sausages weren't specifically marked "Gluten-Free", but didn't have any gluten ingredients in them. That was really going above and beyond, but it really matters to someone with a severe reaction like me. Especially when I am traveling - yikes! Each interaction with the staff left me smiling - I wish I could say that about all the hotels I've ever stayed at. The indoor pool looked great, but we didn't use it. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast area had tons of options, including several hot entrees. This was a great choice for us.

    « Great Location! »

    The location is great and next to the Roadhouse restaurant which has good food. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although they need some new key card locks. It took us about 3-4 minutes every time until our card would work, They then said it was operator error and they came up and tried it and it still didn't work!!! Months ago I would have given this hotel a 4-5 star rating but not now. During Mothers day weekend My brother had booked 2 rooms and one of them was for me. When checking in I gave the hotel clerk my Credit Card and the room was placed in my name. Apparently my card was never taken and they charged my brother. My sister in law called them to say they charged the wrong card and the said they couldn't reverse the card until my card was charged. They then continued to lie to my sister in law and said they tried calling me many times (which they didn't) to try and get my Credit Card Number (again). They somehow lost all my information they took from me when we checked in. As soon as I found out about this I called and straightened it out. If they would have just said we screwed up and been honest it wouldn't have been a big deal but when you lie to customers that's bad.

    « Definitely mixed impressions »

    Based on the room, spacious and clean, I was going to give this hotel four stars. But then came the 'free hot breakfast.' I guess you get what you pay for. The hot parts were bacon and scrambled eggs, and although the bacon was decent, the eggs were the powdered version at their worst. The selection of fruit and yoghurt was very poor. So four stars for the room, two for the breakfast, equals three overall.
