    « Great place to stay »

    We had to make a unexpected stay our son had had his last mile in the car seat. The staff was very friendly and made our stay injoyable. The breakfast was amazing. If we ever need a hotel in Yakima again we will defenstly be back.

    « Best in Yakima area »

    Whenever I am in the Yakima area I try to book into this hotel. The room had a very comfortable bed, fridge, microwave and a nice love seat. It has been recently remodeled with room with modern useful amenities.

    « ahtanum inn »

    ok place. nice decor. free breakfast was pretty much tasteless. but people were nice who served breakfast and other personnel were nice. pet friendly but not a real great place to walk your dog, ie not a lot of green grass around.

    « Great place to stay »

    Very nice place to stay,always a friendly and professional desk staff and very helpful. They have one of the Best breakfasts of any Best Western we've stayed at. Nice outdoor pool during the Summer months and easy access to the freeway.

    « Expectations approved »

    We appeared in Yakima accidentally and have to stay for night somewhere. And here we found one of best western's hotels. Firstly,the design of the hotel is convenient seems like wooden. Second, of course the attitude of front desk was absolutely pleasing. I can calculate a lot of good things about this hotel but stayed just for night. The room, conveniences of the room, the view, the garden, the cleanness, the bathroom,the bed everything was high in the level. Thank you all Because we had the rest that we really needed to have!

    « Remodeling issues »

    Stayed here for a school event. We were impressed with how clean and new things seemed. Unfortunately several of the newly remodeled rooms don't have everything hooked up. That should improve in time. Great front desk help and a decent breakfast top everything off.

    « Poor customer service »

    We reserved a room through Priceline. We tried checking in at 1440'' but no rooms were available. The room they gave us was a smoking room with which we are allergic. The assistant manager said it wasn't up to them it was up to Priceline. She refused to give us another room or a refund and went about her business. At 1500' we asked for a room and they said the rooms were not ready yet. The assistant manager couldn't say what a time a room would be available. She didn't know if it would be 1600' or 2100'. She had a flippant attitude and was very rude. We called Priceline and they spoke with the assistant manager who reportedly refused to authorize a refund. They said there was nothing they could do. We spoke to the manager about the contact with Priceline and she said it was past the refund period and she acknowledged she refused to authorize a refund. She also threatened to ask us to leave (which she didn't do because she probably knew she'd have to authorize a refund.) We left a VM with the manager and spoke to Best Western customer service. They also spoke to the assistant manager who refused to authorize a refund. He said he managed to convince her to call us if a non smoking room became available. She did call us about 1630' or so. She refused to apologize. We will avoid this Best Western in the future and all Best Western hotels if possible.

    « Nice room, noisy neighbors »

    We enjoyed our overnight stay, though our neighbors talked loudly until late and then started back at it at 6 AM. The breakfast buffet was good with a nice variety, we even got to visit with a 14 week old Cougar cub who was here for the fair. Pillows were too puffy for me, but my wife thought they were wonderful. We would stay again.

    « Great Place »

    First time staying in Yakima, attended Sprint Car Dirt Racing. Great hotel, location perfect. Very clean property, helpful staff. Nice to see they support local racing with a great racers discount. Next to mall and Outback Steak House.

    « another great stay »

    stayed here again for another softball tournament , great service from the start as you walk in , got a late check out . the breakfast is the best of a motel . The poolside courtyard area is a bonus -- all the lower rooms open up to it

    « Typical »

    We stayed here one night and it turned out to be a typical Best Western. Clean rooms and reasonable prices. Our first room reeked of smoke even though it was a non smoking room. They moved us and the second room was fine. Good breakfast with a good selection of items.

    « A good place to stay »

    We were traveling through Yakima so this was a good place for an overnight stay. A well k[t facility, caring and interested staff, and nice breakfast. Quiet room and close to the freeway, no real noise however.

    « Great Stay! »

    This hotel had very friendly staff, very clean and great breakfast! Would stay there again for sure and would highly recommend others to stay there as well. Only negative was the elevator was out of service and we had to carry out luggage up the stairs.

    « Impressive hotel in Yakima »

    When checking into our room, we were greeted very warmly by the front desk staff. They were kind and caring and asked how we were doing after our long car ride. I could tell that it was more than just the cursory "hi, how are you", that sometimes happens. The young lady was smiling and seemed genuinely caring about us. I had asked during our reservation process to have two rooms in close proximity and on the main floor, since I was traveling with my elderly mother. She verified that we still needed what was asked for on the reservation or if there were any needed changes. The breakfast the next morning was filling and delicious. I appreciated the great variety of cereals, oatmeal, eggs, and fruit. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable although the bathroom was on the small side.

    « Not the best place to stay. »

    Room condition not the best, bathroom very small and poor lighting in room. Does not meet BW "PLUS" standards in my opinion. Carpets not good, just not the Best place to stay with a family, and in No way a BW PLUS.

    « Well... »

    The hotel as a whole is not bad. The ruins are average if not a little small, not modern, needs an upgrade. The staff was pleasant but in the evening don't go outside!!!. The parking lot has people living in the bushes and it just doesn't feel safe.

    « Nice stay in the Yakima Wine Country »

    Excellent location for touring the area's attractions. Our room was spacious and clean. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Very nice breakfast included in your stay. Our room was situated fairly close to the lobby, where the breakfast room is. Every morning, there was quite a noisy parade of people going to dine. Doors aren't very heavy and noise was very audible in the room. Chatting in the hallway, slamming doors. I would recommend a room, if you like to sleep later than 8am, less near the lobby. Otherwise a great stay. Recommend this excellent value.

    « Worst Hotel »

    There are lots of hotels where I stay throughout the year, and by far, this place stands out as one of the worst. They booked us into the wrong room, then it was like pulling teeth to get switched to the room we had booked. We got into our room to find a cockroach, stains on the bedspread and it was simply not up to other hotels standards that I usually stay in. To make matters worse, the pool had the most obnoxious loud people that we have ever been surrounded by and the staff simply Ignored it. Flash forward to later in the night (12:30AM), and people were outside being loud and noisy and the hotel staff did nothing to curb it, so we had to go out and request people quiet down. To make matters worse, we were told we couldn't get a late check out (no big deal), but we could use the pool for the rest of the day after we checked out. When we went to do that, we were told it was not allowed. The continental breakfast was substandard and the coffee was always out. Our room was advertised at $129.99 per night, but we looked at our receipt and the charges us $144.99 for the night. Staff was unsure of themselves and obviously not properly trained or empowered to make decisions, which is a kiss of death for the hospitality business. In closing, we won't be back, and unless you are extremely desperate for a cheap place to stay, I would avoid this place at all costs.

    « worth the stop »

    All staff was exceptional friendly and helpful when needed. even the maids would greet you warmly when wandering the halls. everything was comfortable and clean. A very full breakfast compared to most places, large variety of items.

    « Great location! »

    A great place to stay and shop in Yakima. Next to restaurants and shopping. Hotel was clean and staff were very friendly. They offer a nice free breakfast with lots of options. If travelling with kids ask for a room that exits onto an outdoor pool area.

    « Very nice hotel. »

    Wonderful hotel in convenient location. Terrific staff. Very dog friendly. Breakfast buffet was up to Best Western Plus standards. Clean and comfortable. Quiet. What else do you need? Beautiful lobby. Room with two queens was spacious. Very good TV selection. WiFi was not so fast/intermittent at the end of the top floor, but was super fast in the dining room.

    « Good solid choice for a Yakima hotel »

    Yakima doesn't have a lot of first rate accommodations....The Best Western is a pretty good solid choice for this area. The staff was very friendly. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable.The air conditioner worked well (important for 100 degree weather). The breakfast was pretty good.... Our room was nice and fairly quiet (not the hotel's fault, the kids on sports teams get kind of noisy with the ice machine in the early morning. And thus, they run out of ice). The hotel is easily accessible from the highway. if we find ourselves back in Yakima, we would stay at this hotel again.

    « Outdoor pool is great »

    I stayed here because of the pool and the suite rooms on the ground floor with convenient access to the pool area. The pull out sofa was a horrible bed and a barely okay sofa. The breakfast is standard. The service is friendly and pleasant. We have stayed here 3 times over the last few years and always have a great time in spite of that sofa:).

    « Cockroach found in the room »

    When we first arrived, my husband was unhappy with the rooms as he thinks they are reek of cigarette smoke smell even though they were non-smoking room. The staff was unwilling to let us change the rooms. However, we were able to change the room later after I found and killed a cockroach in drawer. :(

    « Very satisfied with my stay »

    Although the hotel was a bit older it was in amazing shape and very well cared for. This hotel is in the best area of Yakima, WA. Right next to a shopping mall, and within walking distance to several restaurants.

    « Ahtanum Yakima »

    Great place to stay! Excellent staff. Clean comfortable room. Will definitely stay again when in Yakima. Nice pool, quiet, good breakfast. Liked the cookies. Friendly people work there. Check-in and check-out went very smoothly.

    « Still a fan of Best Western, but this one real flaws »

    While checking in, the front desk clerk answered at least a dozen phone calls so the process took longer than it should, although she was pleasant and apologetic The elevator didn't work, yet they didn't provide a heads up so if I were handicapped I could be sure to get a room on the first floor The front desk clerk had no idea where the exercise room was, even looking at a floor plan of the building The lobby walls are covered with large, framed quotes from the bible, which I found off-putting The exercise room is the smallest I've seen at a Best Western with old-school aerobics machines although at least the elliptical machine operated well but had no place for water bottle or iPod/phone The first floor hallways smelled of old cigarette smoke Internet connection was weak so I kept getting disconnected, so would avoid this BW location for future business trips.

    « Great place to put your feet up! »

    I stay here 2-3 times a month, and always have had a great stay! its not the fanciest, or even the most modern. But its clean, quiet & comfortable. In my experience it seems to be well maintained. Good hot breakfast! Nice outdoor pool, and a very friendly/helpful staff.

    « As expected, clean and comfy »

    Most definitely at the better end of Yakima with more going on for food and shopping. I appreciate that most BW's have upgraded, remodeled their facilities. The lobby and breakfast location were clean and spacious. The Ahtanum Inn added on a sun-room type seating off the breakfast area to more than double that space. Great visiting this place and seeing improvements along the way. This is definitely our usual stop when hanging over in Yakima!

    « Comfortable and Convenient »

    Excellent location just off I-82 in Union Gap, south end of Yakima, ten minutes to downtown. Close to the Valley Mall and a good selection of restaurants. We chose this hotel for a mid-summer getaway because it has a nice outdoor pool complete with loungers and umbrella tables, giving it a resort feel. The full hot breakfast was an extra bonus. Very good TV in the room and free WiFi, plus free computers in the lobby. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Business Hotel »

    I stayed many times over the years and as a business hotel it is the most convenient for my needs. I like to have a hotel so easy to get to from the freeway and this one provides that. When going out of town the company I work for tries to have a consistent location for all of it's employees to stay while out of town.

    « Surprises Within! »

    Stayed here while working in Yakima. I have stayed here in the past, but had some surprises I did not know about! Check in was nice and easy, friendly staff. Room was larger than I needed and had a kitchenette! I did not know they had this! Beds were separated from a living area with couch and chair. Regular balcony that opened to my next surprise, a really nice grassy area in between the buildings and pool area. Picnic area, and stand alone BBQ grills like you see in the parks. This would be PERFECT if I was traveling with my family and wanted to cook out for dinner! Breakfast was fine, and they had chicken fried steak and makings for breakfast burritos. Not a restaurant, but many more selections than normal hotel breakfasts. Looks like they are updating and remodeling rooms too. Nice stay!

    « Phenomenal Value »

    I discovered this hotel a few months back, and have stayed there three times already. The rooms are clean and quiet, the breakfast is about a nice of spread as you'll ever see, and the value is unmatched. I have now made this hotel my go-to place when I'm in the area. It's hard to beat the quality, and I highly recommend it!

    « Saviors »

    The front desk staff went way beyond normal courtesy. We had been denied a reserved room at a neighboring hotel because the previous guest had not vacated. When we went to Best Western Ahtanum Inn, we were told they were fully booked. Instead of sending on our way, the front desk personnel began an active search for a room as close to Yakima as possible. During this search there was a cancellation at Best Western and the room was offered to us. I can't say enough about the caring service!

    « Good for the price »

    Staff was nice. My room was clean. This is a decent hotel for the price. Air Condition was great on the very hot days. The ice machines did not work however. Breakfast meals were nice and they had a variety of items to choose from.

    « Friendly and Efficent »

    Close to several restaurants and shopping. Rooms were very clean and very nice to have a mini refrigerator in the room. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They did not mind that our group of 65 people were there along with the baseball team that was playing in town.

    « Crossfire Club (CAA7) »

    This hotel hosted our group "Crossfires Across America" annual meet this year We had about 32 rooms for our group and the staff was outstanding We all received quality accommodations and very good service We all enjoyed breakfast each morning together before the day began General Manager "Kelly" was very friendly and enjoyed us staying there for the week I highly recommend this hotel for anyone to stay at Thank you all , Gary

    « Adequate and clean place to stop "on the way" »

    Since most of Yakima seemed to be booked up the day we needed to be there, we ended up at this freeway convenient Best Western. It's clean with a nice outdoor pool and grass for the little dog. The lobby walls are covered with Psalms and it's obviously a Christian owned facility. I question blatantly religious pronouncements in a hotel, no matter the religion. The breakfast was adequate, lots of parking and rooms are clean and nice. The best part is the Outback Steakhouse just steps across the parking lot. THAT was a nice amenity!

    « Summer stay »

    We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were with a car group and found the staff friendly and very accommodating for some "extras" that we required as part of our group activities. The rooms were very good and the location excellent for access and for nearby shopping.

    « Best Western Ahtanum Inn Yakima Wa. »

    We were part of a Car Group , Crossfires Across America, and a large one of over 32 cars ! It can be challenging, to manage a large group in a Hotel setting, but the Manager was nothing, but accomodating , to make our stay as a group work out well. The rooms were clean , and the pool area and grass area were well maintained, The complimentary Breakfast, was just what our group needed before we went on our Car excursions daily!!

    « Cross Fire Group Stay »

    Very enjoyable stay. Management and staff were most accommodating to our group. Our room was clean and stalked with toiletries that you would expect from a BW Plus. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety. Cookies and pastries in the afternoon was a treat. The location is near a freeway exit and across from a shopping mall. There are several eateries within walking distance or a short drive from the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

    « Great Service, Even Before Checking In »

    We arrived around 4PM, the first hotel on our 9 day m/c ride. Right when we pulled up, an employee was coming out the front door and said, "Hey, welcome. You are welcome to park you bikes right here at the front door so we can keep an eye on them". Wow, not the first time we've heard this from Best Western, but easily the fastest. The desk host was super friendly and efficient, when asking my last name for the reservation, commenced with using my first name from there on. That felt very welcoming and comfortable. They had a ground floor room close to the entry as I had requested. Gave us the triple AAA rate and had us checked in and good to go within 5 minutes. The room was clean, comfortable and right up to the BW standard that we (my riding buddy & I) have come to rely on. Looking forward to the included breakfast and coffee in the morning.

    « Wonderful Visit!!! »

    This hotel was great for our car club annual event!!! We arrived Sunday afternoon and left on Friday. The manager and staff were so friendly and accommodating. The breakfast each morning was wonderful; scrambled eggs, rosemary potatoes, tortillas, salsa, waffles, cereals, muffins and more. Right off the freeway for easy access for our daily drives. We would not hesitate to stay here again!!!

    « Crossfires Across America »

    We came here with a Chrysler Crossfire Group of 32 Cars. They started out right, by having 30 sports of reserved parking on the side of the hotel. They let us use the breakfast room for our Mystery Crossfire Game (40-50 people.) They let us celebrate our last day together in the Breakfast room for our own Pizza Party. We used up the Lobby for people to inter mix with each other. Kindness was well above the normal. The GM (Kelly) was super kind, Vivian (and the new Trainee) were terrific, Nathan the night front desk did well even when us late goers were making some noise, and best of all for me Oscar did a fantastic job giving me the "Roof - Tour" to take pictures of the Crossfires and drivers. Thanks again for a great job !!!!!!!.

    « Outstanding Staff & Service »

    From the moment of our arrival on Sunday evening for a week long stay with our Crossfire's Across America auto club we were treated like honored guests. Trina greeted us with an infectious smile and conveyed warmth like we were old friends. Thank you for the hospitality to us and exceeding expectations! The rooms were tidy, lobby and afternoon cookies inviting and location to shopping and dining steps away. We could not have asked for more. Job well done!


    Desk personnel were very knowledgeable and efficient. We had a poolside room with a patio which was very relaxing in a garden setting. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast area was spacious and the hot selections were very good (eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuits, gravy) in addition to nice variety of cereal, fresh fruit, bagels, and pastries. And the price was certainly affordable. The only downside was the bathroom door which you had to close in order to access the bathtub.

    « state softball »

    here for a state softball tournament , the staff here is the best , this is not a 5 star motel , more like a 3 , but they get 5 because of the service. we travel a lot in the summer & this place is my new favorite. the bathrooms are a little cramped - the only negative i have

    « Nice place »

    Clean and nice it was close to the work we were doing in town. Breakfast was good, beds were comfortable. We will be staying again this week. The price of the hotel was reasonable. I would recommend this hotel.

    « Nonsmoking Room Wreaked of Cigarette Smoke »

    We complained that our room smelled very strongly of cigarette smoke and asked for another room. They said they were completely booked and they couldn't move us to another room. The next day there were still no other rooms available but they said they would deep clean the room to get rid of the smell. When we got back to the hotel that evening, we were hit with a wall of vanilla room freshener so strong it burned our eyes. Ugh! Won't stay here again!! Breakfast was good so I gave them 1 star which is generous.

    « Very Good! »

    A very good experience ! Friendly staff. Clean. Will be nice when the elevator to the second floor is installed. Close to shopping and restaurants. The breakfast was good, the breakfast area was very clean. There is a washer and dryer if you have been on a long trip and need to do laundry.

    « K. Watier (Res. name Ruth) »

    Had a GREAT visit!! I am a self proclaimed "hotel snob" & almost always insist on staying at the Sheraton & Hilton properties. We were very VERY pleasantly surprised at the comfort, cleanliness, amenities and friendliness of the staff at this Best Western property. Every staff member we encountered was helpful, informative, accommodating & friendly!!! The breakfast was good & there was enough variety to satisfy everyone. We will certainly stay here on our next visit to the Yakima area!!

    « Needs some work »

    Staff at check in were not welcoming, my non-smoking room smelt like cigarette smoke, quality of bed was horrible (but everyone prefers different types of beds) (too hard for me), breakfast was GREAT, bathroom was extremely small with very little room to get ready in, location is great for shopping, clean room, just overpriced in my opinion. If other hotels weren't sold out I would have stayed somewhere else. Lots of truckers at this hotel.

    « A nice hotel »

    This was a very nice hotel. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in. The pool area and pool itself were clean and well kept. Although the hotel was close to major roads, it was still very quiet. For us, it was also within walking distance to many restaurants.

    « No ADA »

    There were no grab bars in the room. Scooter nor walker could not fit into the bathroom. No shower access, or grab bars. No grab bar for the toilet. We specifically asked for ADA room when making reservation. Travelled 250 miles for a family function and room was small, partner couldn't get in the bathroom, toilet was low, no room to turn around. Bed was very comfortable.

    « Wonderful Rooms, Wonderful Staff, Great Location »

    This Best Western has a lot to offer. The rooms are so nice and comfortable. The breakfast has a lot to offer and is very good. The breakfast area is kept very clean. Rooms facing the pool have relaxing seating out of each room. The pool has a nice sun bathing area, the court yard has a nice bbq and picnic area. Parking is plenty and the location is easy to access. This really is one of the nicest Best Westerns, I will always stay at this Best Western anytime I am in the area

    « Wonderful visit »

    The staff was wonderful, clean accommodations. There wasn't a double queen, which we reserved a available so we got a free upgrade to a suite. The breakfast offered had many varieties to choose from. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Overall a Very Nice Stay »

    The folks at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Coffee is available in the lobby. We were upgraded to a very large double queen kitchenette suite as diamond select level. The carpet seemed new but the soft furnishings in the suite need replaced soon. The cushions on the sofa bed did not cover the bed mechanism and was very uncomfortable to sit on. The chair was much better. We had a first floor room with a sliding door in the back and a small patio with chairs. The second floor rooms have balconies with chairs. I liked that there was a table with four chairs and a nice kitchen (with a two burner cooktop) in the suite. Our beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft so we slept well. We did notice a lot of light in the bedroom when we turned off the lights as the TV had a bright red light and the alarm clock was also very bright. A rolled up towel blocked the TV light and a hand towel tossed over the alarm clock also helped. There is a picnic/BBQ area and a large pool inside the U made from the hotel rooms. Lots of restaurants nearby and almost shares a parking lot with an Outback. They had delicious link sausage in a casing (probably the best I've encountered recently) and wonderful bold coffee. There were four choices of cereal and skim milk available. Also, they had full size muffins and we really liked the chocolate chip ones. Finally they offered a free Sunday newspaper and this is very rare to find.

    « Not a bad choice but could've been better. »

    I reserved a "poolside" room and our was not poolside. Heating/cooling system was a little frustrating. We had to adjust the wall unit and the thermostat on the other side of the room. (Small inconvenience) Found a couple small pieces of garbage on the floor when we checked in. Front Desk staff was not unfriendly but not friendly as I would expect.

    « Happy friendly staff! »

    The check in at this facility was VERY friendly and welcoming! The bed and room were very nice and the only strange thing was the texturing on the ceiling in a rather unique fashion. My dog kept staring at it too :) They were very pet friendly and even have a small dog run for taking care of business - it was well stocked with bags along with the bag that came with my dog's welcome cookie. Hot breakfast was well stocked, clean and well organized - and the food was pretty good. Happy to see cheese to put on top of my biscuits and gravy - YUM!!! The cranberry juice was so cold and refreshing I had two cups. I do hope they get the elevator issue resolved so that my next trip can upgrade them to excellent!

    « Great Experience!!! »

    This hotel was a perfect fit for our group. The room exceeded my expectations and the staff was fantastic. The pool and grounds were great for all the kiddos we had in on our team. There was a lot of us and the Hotel staff managed it all beautifully. Breakfast was hot and ready for us, my kids loved making their own waffles!! We had a great time!!!

    « Great location for shopaholics! »

    Our high school baseball team was participating in the Washington State Regional Championships in Yakima, Washington. We stayed here with the members of our team. Our number one praise for this hotel was its cleanliness. That is a very important attribute we look for in a hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful giving us directions to the stadium and other venues in the city. The best factor about this hotel is its back yard location adjacent to the 80+ store Valley Mall. A shopaholic's dream! The free breakfast seemed to have all the fixins for a big or small, healthy or not, breakfast. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will book here again.

    « Good Hotel Value for The Price Paid »

    In Yakima for business. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Work area (desk and chair) were roomy enough to set up my laptop and get some work done. Breakfast was great. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

    « Excellent in every regard. »

    We have stayed in MANY Best Western Hotels and this one offered the best breakfast we have ever had - from the variety to the presentation to the taste. Staff was friendly, courteous, helpful and happy. The hotel was well appointed, clean and wifi worked without any difficulty. Convenient location near the freeway was a bonus.

    « Huge place decent price. »

    I spent one unscheduled night there,my vehicle broke down,i had to spend the night while it was being fixed at the dealership.The staff did a very good job at accommodating and help me the best they could,room was very clean and cozy and facing north(#240).Some kind of a little coffee break is served late afternoon and their complimentary hot breakfast is delicious.Eggs,sausage,ham,different potato styles,waffles,muffins,bread,fruits,variety of yogurts,cereals,coffee,tea,juices etc....Great place to stay even though i would have liked to keep going that day and skip the 300$ bill for my vehicle. I forgot to mention,they have a rate for CDL holders.

    « Stay in wine country »

    This hotel is in Union Gap just south of Yakima. We enjoyed seeing the apple and cherry blossoms as we drove in. Hotel is clean and staff friendly. We had a room overlooking the pool and lawn area which was clean and comfortable. The breakfast area is one of the largest we have seen at a Best Western with all the usual items with a friendly and efficient staff member.

    I stayed here for work and I was very happy! Staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean and comfy. Best nights sleep I have ever had at a hotel. I would definitely stay here the next time I am in Yakima!

    « Great hotel with friendly, helpful staff! »

    We went to this area for a function in a nearby town. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful with a mix-up with our reservations. The hotel had been remodeled recently, and the elevator was not yet up and running, so had to take the stairs to our room. Not a problem, though, as only 2 floors in the hotel. The hot breakfast was filling, with diced red potatoes, as well as the standard scrambled eggs and sausage. Both "light" and regular yogurt was a pleasant surprise. The eating area was quite large; a nice feature. Has an Outback Restaurant across its parking lot. Would stay there again if in the area.

    « what you need »

    Easy check in and check out, extra amenities in the room (towels, pillows etc). Nice staff and decent free breakfast. It is not the nicest hotel I have stayed at but for the price it is clean, proficient, nice staff, and has everything you need. I would stay there again anytime.

    « Yakima Marathon 2016 »

    Staff is super accommodating and friendly, They got me a better rate at check-in and we also did a late check-out no extra charge. Full breakfast was available by 5:15AM race morning; shuttle bus to start and from finish - this is the only hotel in the area that does that. Conveniently located off 82, and close to shops and restaurants. Great value; I've stayed here a number of times and the staff always does a great job.

    « Excellent Overnight Stay »

    Very convenient location quiet and clean. This is an older property but has been renovated to keep up with the times. We had room with balcony facing the courtyard which was a added bonus. Beds were comfortable and even though the bathroom is small it was very clean. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. They serve a good hot breakfast in a area with plenty of room which isn't always found. Would definitely stay here again when in Yakima area.

    « Very courteous Staff. Easy freeway access »

    This is a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfast is very good and you get a free local paper. The internet works well. The rooms are lacking in electrical outlets. It would be nice if the nightstand lamps had a recepticle. When traveling to this hotel I bring an extension cord. The front desk staff are the best.

    « Best Stay Ever! »

    Awesome rooms with all the amenities. What I found particularly amazing was the free hot breakfast. We stayed on what appeared to be a busy day, but the breakfast area was very well stocked and prepared. We had a very nice lady in the kitchen named Roberta to point us in the right direction when we needed help, and she was very polite and professional even when our kids made a little mess. Great job Roberta and Best Western on a such a pleasant stay!

    « Great hotel, excellent location »

    This hotel is far enough from the highway to be quiet but close enough to be very convenient. I have stayed here multiple times and always enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and cheerful. The breakfast is exceptional for a hotel in this price range with hot eggs, bacon, and all of the conventional items too. I especially appreciate the excellent coffee which is not a given at moderately priced hotels.

    « Worst I've been in »

    Beyond dated. How are they entitled to catorgize themselves as "Plus"? I stay in a lot of hotels. In fact I am in a hotel room 90% of the year. Never had I had a room worse than this. I am actually in pain. Bed here is in terrible shape, leans to the right, tag says it was manufactured 12 years ago. Other than that, this room is just akward. Bathroom counter height can't be to code. I'm 5'8" on a good day and the counter is at least 6" below my waist. Desk is more or less a small table with heavy, non rolling chairs...placed just at the foot of the bed. Room 230 just sucks. Next to stairwell, across from ice machine, facing highway, parking lot, restaurant, as well as a truck stop. Air filters were also filthy. If I have anything positive to say it's that the Internet is ridiculously fast for a hotel in the middle of nowhere. Just shy of 100mbps down and 10 up over ethernet...cut that in half for wifi. Still would never make up for the stay. I will never return to this location. (Rewards Status: BW Diamond)

    « Soccer Team Trip »

    The hotel was clean and the rooms comfortable. We had a youth soccer team staying at the hotel where we were able to get 11 families checked in, fed a breakfast, and checked out quickly so we could make their early game. The value was very good for all of the families.

    « visiting family »

    I went on a trip to visit my ill family member. I always stay at a Best Western when possible. It is comfortable and clean. I was not thrilled about the area but it worked. I came in late one night as I stayed out at my family members home for longer thab exoected. When I got back to the hotel the front door was locked. This hotel is basically off the highway behind a mall area in a very lonely spot, which made it kind of creepy. I had a room key but it didn't work for the main door as the door lock was not yet updated. I had to get the attention of the attendant that had just come out of the back room. He said that the lock had not been updated on the front door yet. You would think they would of done that one first. One complain though if you sleep in late you'll miss the cleaning service.

    « Convenient and predictable »

    Full met my expectation except for the fact that I didn not get a king as requested. Other than that Best Western Plus is a great way to go, and this one has everything you need and within walking distance.

    « sportsman show »

    This Inn had everything I was looking for people were very friendly rooms were clean and quiet had everything you might want in the room. The hot breakfast was great clean great food and a large selection. I would stay there again for sure.

    « Excellent »

    Excellent staff very helpful and pleasant. Made sure that everything was perfect in everyway Room was great very clean and well stocked with coffee and amenities. Breakfast was first rate. Not just make your on waffle like most hotels.

    « Very pleasant stay !!!! »

    Our stay at the Best Western PLUS Ahtanum Inn in Yakima, Wa. was very nice. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were extremely comfortable to sleep on and we got a nice rest, The continental breakfast in the morning was excellent. They had a very good variety of items to have for breakfast. You just had to chose was you liked. The hot items were kept hot and were displayed very well. The location was excellent. There was lots of shopping areas within walking distance. Restaurants were close by also. So this hotel was located in a very good location. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The maids were also friendly and asked if there was anything we needed just asked them and they would accommodate our requests.

    « A nights stop »

    Although we had never stayed at Yakima before it was about 1/2 way on our destination so we thought we would give it a try. We always look for Best Western Hotels so when we found this one it was great. Very nice room with a patio door to the back yard. Although the pool wasn't open because of the season, the yard was very nice to walk in. Ladies at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The breakfast in the morning was organized and everything was kept full and tidy. All dishes were cleaned up as soon as someone left if they didn't take their own. Nice hotel and nice little town.

    « Best Western yes, Best Western Plus no »

    For a roadside accommodation this hotel is ok in terms of location and amenities. In terms of noise insulation it is not so good. We heard the guests next to our room shuffle chairs and talk loudly on their patio literally every fifteen minutes while they were smoking outside. Very annoying! On the positive side: tasty red bean soup was offered late afternoon.

    « Very outdated hotel - Hallways reek of cigarettes »

    While this may be an okay hotel for truck drivers and construction workers, it is certainly not a suitable hotel for the typical business traveler. Very outdated and rundown decor. Hallways stink of cigarette smoke. On the positive side, the breakfast is huge and amazing for a Best Western of this type. They actually have a real kitchen. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have cookies and chili out every evening and coffee always available in the Lobby. That is a very nice touch. If you are a smoker, trucker, construction worker, you will probably like this property. Otherwise, I would recommend you steer clear.

    « We stay here every year for the central Washington state fair. »

    I absolutely love the staff at this hotel. I have stayed here for five years in a row now. I come to town every September for the fair. We are at the hotel for anywhere between 10-15 days. We also have small exotic animal babies that accompany us. This hotel has been one of the BEST hotels I've ever stayed in. I applaud the staff and how they treat their guests. I look forward to my stay and the staff every year. Thank you for going above and beyond for your guests!

    « Yearly vacation stay »

    This is one of the places we go once or twice a year to get over to the east side of the state and enjoy some of their beautiful weather. We started staying here about 7 years ago and keep coming back for more. I will break this review down in 4 sections. Grounds/pool, Room/Bathroom, Hotel condition/service, and Breakfast. Grounds- The grounds at the best western are some of the best I have stayed at for a hotel in its category. The Pool area and courtyard are spectacular. They just recently replaced all of the pool furniture and the grounds are always usually very nicely landscaped. Plush green grass and a big area to play catch or even bbq on. They have a few charcoal bbq pits that you can use and a nice quaint gazebo to sit under. One of the big reasons we stay here is because of the private courtyard and pretty grounds. Room- The rooms are nice and have everything you need. Furniture seemed to be updated within the last 10 years and they do have flat screens in the rooms now. Mini fridge/microwave also are located in the rooms. I recommend spending the little extra and upgrade to the poolside/balcony rooms. Bathroom- The Bathrooms are where I deduct my 1* from. Most of the bathrooms are TINY. Its a challenge to maneuver around the bathroom when showering or trying to share it with another person. The shower head is also very low and its hard to not get water on the ground due to the shower curtain. Unfortunately there is nothing that can really be done about the bathrooms size at this point and I will have to live with them. If someone from the Best Western is reading this I would recommend attaching new shower heads that give the extra height.The ones that you can actually remove and hold in your hand. That Would help for us taller people. Hotel condition/ Service- This hotel is older and shows its age in the darker hallways but it doesn't feel cold or dingy like some older hotels. They seem to try to update this hotel little by little every year. Flat screens, outdoor furniture, elevator most recently. I am glad they continue improving the hotel and hope they don't stop as I would like to continue staying here. They have a large breakfast room now that was added a few years ago. Overall its a hotel that shows its age but not in a negative way. Just in some of the wood work and carpet choices and things of that nature. Service here is usually very good but I have came across one front desk person that seemed inconvenience by me when I went to ask a question and they were outside smoking a cigarette. They huffed back inside though and helped me. This was a rare occasion and hope it doesn't happen again. If so I may have to report that person to the manager. (not that I want too we all have our off days). Breakfast- Breakfast here is one of the better ones you will get at a continental breakfast. Has all the things you need and is usually always stocked. Waffles (with the yummy strawberries, butter, sugar free or normal syrup, and whipped cream), cereal, fruit, bagels, pastries, variety of milk, juices, eggs, fried potatos (microwaved), biscuits and gravy, sausage links, etc One of the very best for the price point. If you are staying in Yakima and are planning on doing things at the hotel like swim or play outside this is the place to go. They have fancier hotels in yakima with more up to date furnishings but they don't have the beautiful courtyard or 8 foot deep outdoor pool with bbq pits and gazebo.

    « Hotel »

    It was bad winter storm. We arrived late at the hotel. It is great to watch on the tv. It was nice shower. we couldn't sleep well in the bed. It was awful bed. It need update the bed. It was good breakfast.

    « Only because my go to hotel was full »

    I tried a new hotel, and no good deed goes unpunished. The room needs to be updated, the bed was average, breakfast quality was ok but could be better. They really need to update the amenities in the room. For example the ironing board. Why in the world would they bolt the darn iron to it? The iron was junky and takes up so much of the useable space. Besides, the iron was nasty. Can someone tell me what in the world do people do to these things? It's like someone cooked a grilled cheese sandwich on it!! Need more outlets to plug electronics in to. The place was just ok.

    « Priced right, Great Place to stay! »

    This Lg. Property is near Union Gap and the Valley Mall. Not far from Fairgrounds and Convention Center in Yakima. Clean, comfy and well equipped. Nice workout room, and hot breakfast with lots of choices! Plenty of seating for Breakfast. Breakfast also extends to 10:00 am. which is helpful. 2 levels, with Stairs only. So if you have chn. or mobility issues, request main floor.

    « Great people »

    It was my first stay for business and my experience with Best Western. The people made the visit an excellent experience. There are very few things that really differentiate a hotel stay. The rooms are comparable, but its the people that can make or break the stay. This Best Western did an outstanding job!

    « Greeted with cookies & hot chili »

    The front desk staff made us feel very welcome with fresh baked cookies and hot chili. They were very friendly and helpful. The room was large sand extremely clean. We had a restful sleep due to the quietness of the room and the comfortable bed. The breakfast was incredible - fresh ingredients cooked in front of you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to all.

    « Best Western Plus Ahtanum Inn, Yakima »

    This Best Western is a very nice and comfortable place to stay. The suites are very roomy, the kitchen layout is perfect. They pool area is welcoming. I have used the BBQ area several times. A perfect place to stay with or without children. This Best Western is very accommodating and comfortable.

    « Basic »

    No frills here. Not a hotel, more of a motel. They brag about a great breakfast, but don't offer it until 6am. I'm gone before then. now they are making me add more, so I'll say I didn't get the room I reserved. How do you reserve a room and then when you get there they say its not available?

    « Convenient Stop-over in Yakima »

    To break a long drive, we spent a night at this Best Western. It was not as good as many Best Westerns we've visited, but adequate, considering it's location in the middle of a commercial/industrial zone. This is Yakima. The service was average, the room clean, quiet and comfortable, and the complementary breakfast was surprisingly good. Our only criticism, as first appearances are important, is that they should replace the dilapidated front door and pick up the trash littered along the shrub-beds on the hotel front.

    « Nice Property »

    I was in town on business and thought I would try a different hotel this time. Found this hotel and it was nice but nothing special or out of the ordinary for the price. They did have an outdoor pool for families in the summertime which would be nice but for the difference in the price I would probably go back to my original hotel that I usually stay at when in town. Thanks for a "nice stay" Staff Was friendly so I cant say anything bad about that! Cant really say anything Bad just NOTHING Stood out to recommend to others. Sorry

    « Nice but insensitive »

    One of Yakima's nicer facilities for overnighting. A classic Best Western with two exceptions. The included breakfast exceeds BW Plus standards and is terrific (though my traveling partner said the breakfast needed bacon). The other exception is the prominent display of religious sayings. This can be seen as offensive by some and certainly insensitive by management.

    « Would stay here again »

    This is an older hotel, but very clean and served our needs well. The beds were very comfortable, but seemed small...they said they were queen sized but felt much smaller than our queen at home. The entire room was very clean and quiet. I didn't hear a noise all night. Breakfast was very good, lots and lots of choices. We had Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, bagels and English muffins. They also had eggs, sausage, lots of pastries, cereals and yogurts. We traveled with our dogs, and there is plenty of grassy areas to walk them. Definitely staying here again if we go back to Yakima.

    « Don't pick this Best Western »

    Best Western usually gives reliable if unspectacular service and amenities. The Ahtanum Inn looks to be an older facility and our room, while clean, had a non-working thermostat and the soap dispenser in the bathroom didn't work. The staff had not been particularly helpful on check-in so we didn't bother reporting these issues, as we had to get to sleep with a meeting to get to the next day. The 6 a.m. wakeup call we requested came in at 6:20, though luckily we had our cellphone backups. The breakfast was nice and the Internet service worked, but overall, I wish we'd chosen the northerly Yakima Best Western location - it was a bit more expensive, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

    « Home-away-from-home »

    The staff here is always very pleasant & kind. There always very helpful if we need something. I especially like the Christian atmosphere. The complimentary breakfast & the way the room is set up makes it very convenient for the hotel guest.

    « Convenient location suffers from truck stop neighbor and spotty service »

    I stayed at the hotel twice in midsummer 2015, last in 2015. The property has both a super convenient location, just off major freeway with fast on / off and still close to central Yakima. But the property is adjacent to a very busy, sizeable truckstop with all the related noise and visual impairments. The hotel management does an excellent job of assuring that the truckers do not hang around the property. However, one night I estimated that over 150 tractor trailer rigs were parked overnight behind the truck stop overflowing into the mall parking lot behind. The hotel is neat, clean and well maintained. Rooms are comfortable and décor is pleasant. Management is clearly working hard to try to upscale the property. Service is sketchy. It really irritates me when I approach front desk rep with local area questions and they know nothing about the area. If you hire newcomers or people commuting from some rural area, give them an orientation on surrounding restaurants, clubs, and shopping. Also, one day my room had not been cleaned, and the rather effete night desk clerk pointedly attempted to make it seem as if it were my fault. I would like to rate these folks a 4 for trying hard with property limitations, but I just can't quite justify it.

    « Not up to Best Western Plus standards »

    This sure wasn't like the other Best Western Plus hotels we stayed in during our three-week trip. The wi-fi was impossible to join without help from the front desk, and even then it was slow to connect. Then we were locked out of of wifi the next morning, even though 24 hours hadn't passed; and we couldn't get back online no matter what we tried. The bathroom was missing basic amenities like tissues. There was no directory of services. They only had one key for the room. The pool is outdoors and not very attractive. Breakfast was mediocre. What a contrast with the Best Western in Coeur d'Alene, ID the previous night. This place is not Plus!

    « Golf Outing »

    The stay and play golf package, with Apple Tree GC, is a great value. We have been utilizing it for several years. I will recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, clean, comfortable and quiet hotel in the Yakima area. Thank You BW.

    « Comfortable in Yakima »

    Nicely furnished hotel with clean, comfortable guest room. Convenient location to interstate. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard Best Western breakfast fare. Would recommend this hotel if traveling inYakima.

    « Business Hotel »

    I use this hotel several times a year for business and it is always clean, comfortable and the location makes it work well for my needs. I really enjoy the fact that the staff knows my name each time I show up to check-in and that makes me feel welcome. There are restaurants close with a good variety of types of food.

    « terrific staff great stay »

    our room was clean, the staff was very kind and friendly. The only draw back is the room doors slam very loud. Plenty of parking and well lit. There is a few restaurants nearby for easy dining options. The full breakfast in the morning was perfect.

    « A Good Overnight Stay »

    Just stayed here for one night, while traveling. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was clean, well furnished and decent size. Breakfast the next morning was good. Breakfast area was clean, nice variety of items and they were kept well stocked.

    « Nice Rooms »

    Nice rooms, good size with accommodations perfect for families. Ask the desk for extra coffee. Seems to be limited supply at most Best Western facilities. Breakfast service is good but the fake eggs can get old. Big enough variety to choose something else. Good location about 40 minuets to Prosser and about 40 minutes back to Ellensberg. Many activities inbetween. This is far enough off the freeway to be quiet. Off ramp can be tricky.
