Best Western Snowcap Lodge,Cle Elum

    « A Mountain Retreat Close to Everything »

    I stay at the Cle Elum Best Western whenever I need a room in the area. The rooms are nice, some are very nice (multiple shower heads, large living space). The staff are friendly and know the area well. The breakfast room is its own room with a well organized buffet that is easy to navigate, even when crowded. For me, I like being close to the freeway entrance, restaurants, and groceries. They meet that need too. I'll stay there next time again.

    « Leisure stay in Cle Elem, WA »

    Very nice hotel and staff. Quiet, good parking. Room lacked drawers to put your clothes into. Instead of a nice square working table with 2 chairs, there was only a half-round table against the wall with a single chair (have to ask for a 2nd chair). Good breakfast room with the now standard food that all hotels seem to have (same items each day). Hotel is walking distance to Safeway (and they have a gas station), some restaurants, and fast food eateries. Town is very drivable. Excellent access to/from I-90, the town of Roslyn (home of Northern Exposure, but not much in town except a cool historical cemetery), and Suncadia Resort. Somewhat close to the city of Ellensburg, WA. Take in your reservation confirmation for check-in. I didn't and upon check-out, my total was $4 more than my online confirmation (it was an error in the way the taxes and/or fees were calculated).

    « Quiet and Clean »

    Nice motel located off the highway so it is quiet. Rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. There is a Safeway within short walking distance in case you forgot something. In addition to a tub/shower there was a huge corner tub you could soak in to rest weary bones after a hike.

    3
    « Beatiful location! »

    There are not many options when staying in the Roslyn/Cle Elum area. This is one of the best if you don't want to spend over $250 per night. I do not like that the hotel doesn't allow pets. The hovering owner is a little uncomfortable. He seems to appear every time I've checked in on several visits.

    « Very comfy and clean! »

    Very nice accommodations and the housekeeping staff kept the room in great condition. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are nice. Front desk staff could have been more friendly. The breakfast was well put together. The pool was a great bonus for my teenagers!

    « Great Hotel »

    This Best Western is one of our favorites, it's always a great experience! The staff are very professional and go out of there way to ensure a fantastic stay experience... I would recommend this Best Western to all my fellow travelers on the East side of the mountains!!

    « A great stay at a reasonable price »

    I have stayed at this facility before, but something has changed. My room was remodeled and the staff were exceptional. The location has a gas station and great grocery store just across the street which is real handy preparing for the next day. Perfect stay

    This hotel would not fix the internet Wi-Fi problem. Could not hook to phone or tablet. Owner was not very nice about the situation. The owner parks in the handicap parking spot. Would never spend that amount of money to get nothing. The staff was very friendly and they tried to help but owner has thier hands tired.

    « Nice hotel »

    We were in Cle Elum for business. Fortunately we had made reservations because Snoqualmie Pass closed, stranding many people. There was only one clerk trying to check everyone in but she remained calm, and did an excellent job of helping everyone get a room. The hotel was completely packed but the rooms were still fairly quiet. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The only downside was that there is no elevator. It is a hassle to carry heavy suitcases up the stairs. Overall, this is a decent hotel. Nothing fancy, but decent.

    « Wheelchair user »

    The hotel is quite good for able bodied people, but I use a wheelchair. If you can't stand at all,you may want to check other places, because the beds in the handicapped room are 5-10 inches higher than a wheel chair seat. So lifting yourself from your wheel chair to the bed level is very difficult if you have no use of our legs. The breakfast is above average with nice supply of bacon and some sausage; Egs are kind of a folded over thin omletty thing a bit dry, but ok. Other pastries, cereals, etc all nice. Pillows nothing to brag about but as good as most hotels. Bed fairly comfortable firmness if you can get in it.

    « Best Best Western i have ever visited »

    We were very impressed with our first look at the motel and then by our room. Everything looked brand new and it was probably a recent construction. Everything was exactly as it should be from the rooms, clean, well equipped, excellent heating on cold evenings and quiet. The breakfast was well prepared and attend by staff. The location was great, just off the freeway and across the street from a Safeway and Safeway gasoline station.

    « Lot better than Suncadia ! »

    Visiting after taking kids skiing - utterly tired of paying $250+ numerous crazy surcharges at Suncadia for the most dis functional stay. While SnowCap might not have the glitz it wins in many areas - price around $100 is a bargain - parking is next to entry, not half a mile back in the snow as at Suncadia - pool is in the hotel, you don't need to drive to it as at Suncadia - pool is not packed out with kids and dirty. Very clean at the SnowCap - free breakfast. At Suncadia you hope to never go into the resteraunt because you know it will be $50 each for trash food and take forever - beds are comfortable. Suncadia needs new beds. Why stay in a hotel and get back ache - near the town, Safeway etc. Suncadia requires an endless drive back and forth - early checkin at 2pm. Suncadia - well don't show up until 6pm because you know the room isn't ready - rooms are clean and tidy. Suncadia corridors are dirty, food left out - can walk to rooms. Suncadia requires an endless wait for the damn elevator. So yeah, go to Suncadia and have a coffee. Then drive in to town and stay at the SnowCap. We saved so much money we can go again and again !

    « Nice hotel. Clean rooms. A bit over-priced but good. »

    We stayed at Sno-Cap Best Western for a Saturday night stay while attending a wedding. Although hotel options are limited to a half dozen options this was second most expensive. We picked it due to reviews of clean nice rooms and found such. We did a King Jr Suite and it was pretty spacious with sitting area. The TV was smaller than should have been and sat on counter and not wall mounted. Made it difficult to watch from the bed. The heating/cooling was not very effective and the temp would go up and down making for difficult sleep. Bathroom was small but it had a dual showerhead with one coming from the ceiling so that was unique. It did have a fridge and microwave which we utilized. Front desk staff was attentive and efficient but their attire and look needs a little improvement. Overall good experience but a little over-priced for what you get.

    5
    « Convenient location, spacious room »

    The room was great, and we appreciated the half wall between the bed and the sitting area. The breakfast was good. There was a nice swimming pool but temperature was too cold. My husband liked the very hot jacuzzi. We particularly appreciated the help of Kevin at the front desk in helping 2 seniors chain up for the drive home over the pass in a snowstorm.

    « Clean and comfortable but overpriced. Really really really really AWFUL WIFI. »

    Stayed here on a snowboarding trip. The room was clean and comfortable but the wifi was a dysfunctional catastrophe. I had to burn all my cell phone data simply in order to check my email because the hotel's internet connection was so bad. Also if you're a night owl Cle Elum is not a great place to stay; the Safeway closes at 11pm and from then until 7am literally nothing within a 20 minute radius is open except for one skanky gas station. Had to drive to Ellensburg to get something to eat that wasn't a bag of potato chips, not exaggerating here. If you're staying here it's probably in order to go skiing or snowboarding... it's still a good 30-minute drive to the lifts but the prices are what I'd expect to pay for walking-distance accomodations.

    « Great Late Night Stop »

    My wife and I stopped here about midnight on the way home from Seattle. The weather was due to get really bad and we had very high winds on Snoqualmie Pass. This place was great...right off the freeway, very clean very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi and breakfast. pool, exercise room and more. while I thought the price was a little high it was worth the price. If you are traveling over the pass this would be worth your stop if you are tired of driving or hit bad weather.

    5
    « A clean and affordable place to stay »

    The hotel is easy to find, across the street from Safeway (perfect since the rooms include a mini fridge and microwave). The staff was friendly and easily accessible when needed. We enjoyed the hot tub (open til 11pm), and the breakfast was decent. If we stay again in Cle Elum we would definitely consider returning.

    « Great Places, Snow Cap Lodge »

    Great Experience, Great Staffing and Management as well. ... . The Staff was most helpful, accommodating and extremely Articulate. ... . Accommodations were above anything I have experienced in Cle Elum, which is why they are usually booked when I travel through there

    « Great service and location for fun at the SnoCap! »

    Over the top good service during the crazy NYE weekend on a repeat visit. It is also so close to many great activities..like sledding at Suncadia! The pool and hot tub are always a hit with everyone, plus the good breakfast before heading out.

    « Big comfortable room »

    Went for a night of fun in Cle Elum / Roselyn area. Stayed at this hotel and were very pleased. Our room was huge with a wet bar and separate sitting area. Location is good - walking distance to a restaurant, fast food options and a grocery store.

    Good for location. Friendly staff but carpet needs cleaning, The towels were very nice, with a good TV, microwave and small refrigerator. Breakfast the normal, nothing special. Hotel is in a good location next to Safeway and restaurants, has a nice pool and hot tub.

    very easy check in, rooms were very clean, Lobby was decorated for Christmas and looked very nice. Front desk employees did not look professional as both had very wrinkled shirts. not very friendly, but did get the job done with no complaints

    « Great place to stay »

    We have stayed at numerous hotels and this is a local favorite for us. Always clean, very friendly. Safeway is across the street as is a gas station and hardware store. The hotel has a great pool, Jacuzzi and exercise area.

    « Welcoming »

    We traveled to Anacortes and stayed on our way through it was our first time travelling the Interstate and stopped just before dark at Cle Elum. We discovered there was a BW and we were thrilled. Being we are BW Diamond members. The lobby entrance was welcoming as were the staff. We'd had a long day and they provided us with an early check in and an upgrade to a king suite. Very quiet and inviting. The Staff were all very friendly and very accommodating . We liked the location, especially liked having safeway across the street. We enjoyed our stay so much we made our return stop in Cle Elum again with no regret. The continental breakfast was also delightful. We will return. Highly recommended. Only down fall was no elevator but we're healthy so wasn't an issue for us

    One of the best hotels between Seattle and Yakima, WA. Front desk staff knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. Breakfast is more than satisfying. Definitely a stop in all seasons. Indoor pool is always a plus. Plenty of parking, near Burger King, Taco Bell and Safeway.

    « Beautiful Location in the Mountains »

    I stay at the BW Snowcap Lodge whenever I'm working out of Cle Elum area. It is close to food and drink, and has easy access to the mountains and forests in central Washington. Most importantly, the beds are always comfortable and the shower heads are high enough actually shower under. I can count on a decent breakfast and cup of coffee in the morning and a cookie in the evening. If you stay there, drive to Roslyn and eat at The Brick. You don't want to miss the food there.

    « Loud fans not an issue »

    The building and rooms are reasonable but the staff consistently is unhelpful. Loud fans (for water or killing pests?) in the room next to me were not mentioned during check-in. When I brought this to the attention of the staff the next morning their opinion was that I did not call the front desk to complain. It was my fault for not calling them (I was just trying to sleep). So I am doing it now. Who would have thought that industrial heating Fans running all night would keep our guests up?.... Not the staff. Very unfortunate as the location to I-90 and the pass makes this a very convenient location. This is the second time I have had issues with the staff. Stay here if you don't mind complaining. They will only care if you complain at the time of the issue.

    5
    « Always a good stay »

    I've stayed at the Best Western Snowcap Lodge in Cle Elum many times while in town for work and it's definitely the nicest hotel in Cle Elum. Some of the bathrooms a standard shower head plus an overhead rain shower head that you can have on simultaneously. You won't find that anywhere else in town.

    « What a Crap Hole »

    Staff is Rude, hotel is rundown and dirty, Staff is Rude, no water pressure, walls are thin, Staff is Rude, I requested an early check in, I was told my room was not ready and I had to wait. The next 4 people were given rooms without incident while I sat there waiting. Stay here if you want not a lot of option in the area but the dumpster behind Safeway is probably cleaner, Quieter and the rats are probably friendlier. Seriously. I stay in hotels all over the PNW this is the worst ever.

    « Cle Elum Best Western »

    Beautiful area to stop, rest, play, and enjoy. This location is a choice to be made before traveling another 1/2 hr to Ellensburg. The hotel in general is well cared for and the rooms are comfortable. Found the internet slow and at times sporadic. Breakfast is sufficient to start the day and reserved to the exact time noted for service. Note that this is directly adjacent to I90 so if you like the windows open and highway background noise is a challenge, consider other choices. Staff is friendly. Proximate to Safeway grocery and 5 minutes to any of Ellensburg's attractions and accommodations.

    « AMAZING STAFF »

    We stayed here this past weekend to attend a wedding at the nearby Swiftwater Cellars. We didn't want to pay the insanely high nightly rate at the other recommended accommodation (Suncadia Resort). The front desk staff was able to get us an early check-in so that we could quickly get ready and make it to the wedding on time:) Our room was clean and comfortable- honestly all we were looking for on this quick trip. We ended up leaving our car at the wedding location and were striking out with options to get back to it (no Uber, etc. in Cle Elum). Enter Andy, another example of the exceptional staff this Best Western has. Andy offered to give us a ride! We didn't think we heard this correctly when we called down to the front desk to ask about possible options. They said he was leaving anyway and would be happy to help us out. Wow! Thank you for going out of your way to assist us Andy. We are now Best Western Snowcap Lodge guests for life!

    « Nice stay, very bad internet service »

    Very nice facility, bad pillows (too big), so-called "high speed internet" was a farce. Slow, long time to download email or anything else. Room very nice, quiet, clean. Did not use free breakfast since it was the usual fare and not available until 6:30 am. Too late for our travel plans. There is a McDonalds nearby.

    We've stayed here twice and the hotel is beautifully appointed, the rooms/beds are comfortable, the spa area is well maintained, the full breakfast is better than many. I especially enjoyed the dual shower heads. After a long drive, it was a relaxing stay!

    « Great Location, very clean »

    When making plans to visit Cle Elum I was disappointed to find this hotel was booked . I asked the staff to put me on a wait list in case a room became available and was very pleased when they actually did call me. It is a nice hotel and the rooms and the rest of the hotel were very clean. Breakfast was a standard hotel breakfast buffet with plenty of choices for a hot or cold meal.

    « Nice Hotel »

    The overall appearance and cleanliness was above average for a Best Western in my opinion. I liked the building and it's amenities. I wish there were more than one washer and dryer for the entire building however.

    « Do NOT count on early check-in EVEN if they say they can »

    Check in was a disaster. There was only one woman working the front desk who was only marginally competent so the wait was very long. We had requested an early check-in and were told we could be accommodated but when we went to check in at 2 (not even at 1 as we were told we could) the room was still not available. We were to attend a wedding at 4 and we did not get checked in until 3:30. This is not acceptable. If you say you can accommodate early check-in you better be able to deliver. Since only one person was working the front desk she had to check people in, take calls, and track down the cleaning staff to check on the status of the rooms. This is absurd. When the manager came out and saw many disgruntled customers he apologized but did not offer assistance to the poor front desk employee. He excused himself as "he did not know how to use the system at the front desk". I have never heard anything more absurd. The owner/manager doesn't even know how to check someone in or take a phone call? Very embarrassing and unprofessional. He could have at least helped by checking on the status of rooms so the woman up front didn't have to keep leaving the front desk to go check. I highly advise Best Western higher management to pay this hotel a visit and offer some extensive training to it's current staff. The room itself was nice, very clean and comfortable so we had no issues there.

    Very nice, very clean (and I'm a clean freak), very comfortable, very spacious, rooms. Pillows were FABULOUS!! Extremely helpful and accommodating staff. Great location. Good breakfast.

    Our family (4 adults and 3 children) spent 2 nights at this hotel, having 2 rooms next to each other. The rooms were very clean and well equipped with all that customers would need, including a lovely en-suite bathroom. There is a large indoor heated swimming pool, with towels provided. A buffet breakfast with a varied choice of hot and cold food is included in the price.

    Loved everything about this place. The location is awesome. The place it self is absolutely beautiful. Had a great time touring around while not in classes. Peaceful, setting and surroundings.

    « Quiet stay »

    After driving from Ocean Shores, Wa, we found this motel to be clean, quiet, average breakfast and close to a chain grocery store and shopping. This town appears to have a great selection of motels. Staying at Best Westerns these days is much better than they used to be, thus restoring our faith in Best Westerns after a few years of not booking ANY Best Western motels. They seem to have upgraded some of their property's. Poor TV selection.

    « Great value and comfortable »

    We stayed one night on way back to Seatle but could have stayed longer, with the activities like white water rafting, walking, mountain biking, etc nearby. Large comfortable rooms, with fridge, microwave and plenty of space, even when sharing with two teenagers. Helpful, friendly staff, who recommended The Cottage restaurant for dinner - which was excellent and for non-Americans a must-do for a traditional diner experience. Breakfast was basic but fine - yoghurts, make your own waffles, bagels, muffins. Disappointing that the only fruit was pots of processed fruit salad but that was the only complaint. Not a picturesque location, you can hear the freeway when you're outside (it's just over the back fence) but not in the rooms. There's a petrol station and a Spar on the other side of the road. So, convenient but not pretty.

    « Comfy »

    I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable the beds were in this hotel. The pillows were luscious and fluffy, not the cheap pillows you usually find in hotels. This best western did not skimp on bedding. The hotel was clean and I slept very well it. The room was quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel if I was staying in Cle Elum for the night, I had a great experience.

    This is the place to stay at if you are visiting Cle Elum or in the area. We travel from Seattle to Chelan and usually after a long flight, so we stay in Cle Elum. We arrive late and have consistently found this Best Western to be welcoming and a perfect room. They are large rooms and extremely well kept. We always get a good nights sleep, followed by a very nice breakfast. What more c an you ask for.

    Visting area, Bestwestern was reasonable, however each day service less and less. Stayed three days. They say toss towels on floor if you need them replaced; yet not all were. They ask do not use wash clothes to remove makeup, use little towelettes they leave but they don't always leave them. Suppose to get cookies upon arrival but never did. Overall ok, but won't stay as long next time. Location very busy as it's across from Safeway; lots of traffic with mcdonalds and Burger King and Taco Bell across street.

    « reserve the king-size bed »

    I've stayed here before and have had generally good experiences. We've previously reserved a king-sized bed and have always requested the top floor. I made the mistake of reserving a queen-sized bed on our most recent stay. The bed was most definitely smaller than queen-sized, we sleep on one at home so are familiar with what its size should be. It also moved A LOT every time one of us turned over. Also the room location was the worst I've had here. Right next to the bottom of the stairs and next to a main exit door. Thankfully people were not overly noisy when leaving, but the repeated noise of the door opening and closing and a lot of foot traffic didn't make for a sound night of sleep. Also there are outdoor lights directly outside the window and no black-out shade. I sleep with an eye mask so it was non-issue, but if you don't have one and are light sensitive it would be an issue. This is a really decent hotel, just make sure to reserve a king-sized bed and request a top floor room. Also avoid room 101.

    « You'll be sorry... »

    IF you arrive at the Snowcap Lodge, don't be taken in by the pretty decor of the lobby. Instead, make sure up front that everything is working as advertised. And IF everything is NOT working, don't wait for over an hour for someone who was promised to fix the problem to arrive, because they won't. And IF you tell the front desk that you're leaving because the room wasn't in working order, don't be surprised that they're shocked - SHOCKED - that you don't want to stay in a room that doesn't fulfill the main reason you came to stay there. DO be sure to watch for "professional" treatment by management as you are dismissed.

    My family stayed at the hotel for a week. The staff was friendly and helpful. A couple of notes about the room. There are no blackout curtains on the windows, and there are no drawers to put clothes into. The breakfast was good. The hot tub was hot. All and all a good stay.

    « The Nicest Hotel in Cle Elum »

    This hotel would get five stars except for two issues that we had. First, there is no elevator in the building, a real hardship for the elderly and disabled. No floor level rooms were available even though we had reserved one. We managed to have the party who cannot navigate stairs easily hobble up to the second floor, thankfully on a staircase that wasn't too long. The next problem was the air conditioning. The unit only cooled half the room, and it wasn't the half with the bed. They really need to fix that issue. Everything else was great. Friendly staff, nice clean, heated pool and spa. Good morning breakfast buffet, large, clean room with excellent shower. Plenty of sink space, with one for face and a separate one for drinking/cooking. Really appreciated the iphone charger! The in room coffee service was delicious. And the huge king sizedbed was very comfortable, as was the fold out couch. We will be back.

    « Working in Cle Elum »

    This is a pretty new Motel just West of the old Downtown area. Rooms are big and clean, but first floor is noisy when people are pounding around. There is no elevator. You can walk to McDonalds and Safeway and a couple small restaurants from here. The pool is very nice. Breakfast is ok. No variety from day to day. This town fills up in Summer and weekends and it can be hard to find a room. The rates go up when its busy, but its still a pretty good value. I had trouble with the laundry during my last stay. The dryer kept shutting off and you had to keep checking it every 10 minutes or so. There were 3 people trying to get wash done that night and we were all up too late and upset. I suggested that everything should be in tip top shape during this busy season when rates are high and we all have tight schedules- whether you are working here or on vacation.

    The staff are friendly. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are beautiful. The bed was comfy. The keys to the room did not work so I had trouble getting into my room and into the building after spending the day out and about. I have stayed at many hotels over the years, and this hotel was the first I know of the listed warnings about stealing items and the cost for each item. Seemed a little weird. They have probably had trouble with stealing here. All of the warnings and the high cost of replacement made me nervous to use the towels. I will probably never stay here again because honest guests should not have to worry about that.

    « Great hotel to stay while in Cle Elum »

    The hotel is conveniently located across the street from a Safeway which was great for us since we were in Cle Elum for 5 days. The hotel is very clean and very quite. Our king-sized room was modern, spacious and had a separate area with a couch, coffee table, microwave, refrigerator and a large desk for which I am at now writing this review. The bath itself was large with two shower heads (one on the wall and one from the ceiling.) Towels were plush and bright white. There were plenty of electrical wall sockets to accommodate our electronic devices which is an added plus. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating for which we had contact with the front desk, maintenance and housekeeping, Five-star staff! I can highly recommend this well-maintained, clean and quite hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Cle Elum or surrounding area.

    « A great hotel with a great location »

    During a weekend in April of this year, I had a bike race in Cle Elum Washington and our family needed somewhere to stay. This hotel looked like a great option and it was. The location is literally right off the highway, just take the exit and turn right and you're there. We arrived pretty late at night, around 10:30, so it was already dark outside. The property from outside looked very clean and was well lit. There were no problems with parking and there were plenty of spaces. The lobby was nice and clean, and was well lit. The front desk staff got us checked in within 5 minutes and we were in rooms 115 and 117. I was in room 117. Both of the rooms were king size and easily could have accommodated all four of us if not more people. Seeing as it was pretty late when we got there, I did a quick glance over of the room, and it seemed clean and was quite a nice room. In the morning, I inspected the room more thoroughly, where I noticed a few minor things. First, the HVAC is a system that is automatic, so you just set the temperature and it will cool or heat to that temperature without letting you choose the mode. A little annoying but it was ok. The HVAC unit, which was below the window, made a rattling sound when the fan was on, which was a bit annoying but wasn't bad. Another minor thing is that the only clock in the room was in the form of an iHome, that was A) In the office area and B) wasn't set to the correct time. It was easy to change the time and move it however. Speaking of which, the room I was in had a microwave and a mini-fridge, both of which worked well. The microwave beeper was really loud and annoying though. There was also an extremely comfortable sofa bed in that room. The bathroom sink was in the main area to the left of the door and the counter was massive. They could have put three sinks and there still would have been plenty of room. While there was no closet, there was an area for hanging clothes with rather annoying hangers. The bathroom itself had a shower that had both a rain head and a normal shower. Both had amazing pressure and while the controls were a little confusing, they were easy to remember. One little thing is that the rain head was quite loose and could have fallen out probably if wiggled hard enough. There was no lack of towels throughout the room so that's always a plus. The bed was quite comfortable and the pillows were pretty soft but not extremely. There were tables on either side of the bed which was a good thing. However, the drawers in them hit the wall and there was some paint damage in certain areas of the room. It took me until the 2nd day to find the Kleenex box which was located on the wall next to the TV, which was a flat screen that was pretty large and had good quality. You could also hook up your own device which was nice. A minor complaint about the room is that there were tons of light switches, I counted 15 in total, which is a little too much in my opinion, but at least you get a lot of choices about lighting in this room. This hotel had a pool and it was quite nice. The temperature was cold at first but it was easy to adjust to. There was a hot tub, but it was way too hot, even for my parents. Also the temperature in the room had to be over 80 degrees, it was way too hot. The pool room was undergoing some sort of renovation at the time as well. Also, none of the lights in the actual pool worked, or maybe they just weren't turned on. Either way it was a little dark in there. However, the pool was open until 11PM so that was nice. This hotel also has 1 washing machine and 1 dryer. While you don't have to pay to use either, you do have to pay for detergent for the washer. There was also a breakfast service that had pretty good food and featured DIY waffles, eggs, milk, toast, your standard hotel breakfast stuff. One final minor thing, the key card that I was given was very picky and worked about 50% of the time. Overall, I think it was a great little hotel with a few small things that could easily be fixed, but there were no cleanliness issues and everything seemed to be in pretty good shape. So, for a weekend or maybe a weeklong stay, it's a good hotel that I would definitely recommend. I have a YouTube review of this hotel coming soon so there will be a link here.

    « Quite Nice. Clean, Friendly and a Little Bright »

    I'll quickly start out with my only complaint because the Snowcap Lodge is a quality Best Western in all regards which is why I was surprised that they do not have room darkening drapes.It's June and it's the Northwest which means light until almost 10PM and again at 4:30AM. The room drapes filter the light, but they should be room darkening. With the hotel parking lot light on my room had too much light for this light sleeper to get a good night sleep. Seems like such a normal thing to have in any hotel and in winter it might still be an issue with the light, but putting that aside the place is otherwise great. I had a room on the first floor right across from the laundry area which I hoped would not be an issue and it was not. The hotel was quiet. Nice big clean rooms with a small refrigerator and microwave. A big nice shower with a tub. A good work desk and big TV. The free breakfast is quite varied and good and the internet works great. Definitely a well run establishment.

    This hotel had to be the cleanest of the Best Westerns that I have stayed in this past month of which there were about 16. The staff was super pleasant and very very accommodating. The decore was very current. The laundry room was very well maintained and there was no charge to do my laundry. The ONLY issue I had with this hotel is that I wish the room doors closed quieter. There was a lot of door slamming. Would definitely use this hotel again.

    « Comfortable, clean, convenient: the Three C's of a good hotel »

    We booked the hotel because of Cle Elum's proximity to Seattle and the positive reviews on various websites. The lodge is fairly easy to find. The building is located between I-90 and a Safeway grocery store. On 1st Street (the main drag), there is a sign that says Best Western and has a large arrow. The only problem? The sign is about 20 yard past the entrance to the parking lot, giving the impression that the entry is farther down the street. The only problem with this set up is that if you misinterpret the sign, the road turns into an on ramp for I-90! Once we got passed that issue, everything else went well. The lodge was easy to find, the front desk was easily accessible and check in took a very short time. (Warning: there is no elevator so a second floor room means a lot of hauling stuff upstairs if you pack as heavily as we do). The room itself is enormous. The layout is very open and easy to navigate, even with four of us and a boatload of suitcases. Although the highway is close by, it is a very quiet room.

The welcome cookies were an appreciated extra. Staff was very pleasant. Supermarket and good Mexican restaurant within walking distance. We also appreciated being able to take advantage of the stay & ski deal. It's an easy drive to ski. We also thought the breakfast options were varied and nice. We think this is a great losing option in Cle Elum!

    « No elevator, ceiling over pool is damaged and missing »

    First, the lack of an elevator should not bother most, but will cause issues for guests with limited mobility. The rooms are large and nice. Sadly, customer service is lacking at the front desk, mostly due to one young man. The ceiling over a portion of the pool is damaged and missing. The noise from outside is noticeable in the rooms facing the parking lot. Breakfast is in a cramped space with limited seating. A positive is the shower. It had good pressure and lots of hot water. I did meet and chat with some very welcoming staff. So overall the hotel offered good and bad experiences.

    « Best sleep I have ever had in a hotel »

    I picked this hotel because they had an indoor pool that was open 24/7 and the reviews were good. It was just me and my son, but when I booked the room I booked 2 queen beds, but when I went to check in the front desk told me they had me in a one bed room because they only showed one adult. It should not matter, if I booked 2 queen beds that is what I wanted. She was able to switch us to a room with 2 queens so they made it right. I have to say, one of the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel. Very quiet, bed super comfortable, room very clean. I hate to say but my son was so tired after the drive he did not want to get into the pool, but it did look nice. I did try the breakfast, it is in a very small room and not a lot of seating, and it was not the best, but it was ok. I will most definitely stay here again.

    My husband and I stayed here one night while traveling. We did not spend much time in the hotel. The room looked quite nice, but there was a pretty bad smell. My husband says it smelled like a smoking room. I thought it smelled more like must. (Room 125) Nevertheless, it was quite unpleasant. It was late so we did not ask for another room. The shower was very nice, strong pressure. The TV was very close to the end of the bed and we had to hold the remote up to change the channel. (A taller TV stand would be nice).

    « Worst Great Western »

    This was a pit stop for us on a long drive - what we really wanted was a good night's sleep. So we were very tolerant throughout a lengthy and never resolved problem with wifi. At midnight when I trod on a sharp stone, I was too tired to get dressed and take it to reception (as the duty manager - David Palma - later told me I should have done) The next morning housekeeping tried to get in at 7.28am. They attempted again at 7.53am and finally at 8.50am. At this point we spoke to Lynn from housekeeping who showed us that the front desk had us checked out. We went to the front desk: no, said Mr Palma, Lynn was wrong. Of course, it's precisely when things go wrong that a company has the opportunity to demonstrate good customer service. We did not get that: we got passive-aggression, constant talking over us and even laughing at us. This enflamed an already irritating situation, exacerbated of course by lack of sleep. The room (sharp stone aside) was good: clean and spacious. But the spectacular lack of customer service, coupled with the attempts to get into our room way before check out time, all exacerbated by a lack of accountability, means I'll steer well clear of "Best" Westerns in future. This was the only single episode of bad service in 3 weeks in Canada and the US however, so I'm sure it's an anomaly and we'll be more careful where we stay in future.

    The layout of the room was really good Lots of counter space, and the lighting was good. Many hotel rooms are so dark and under lighted. Also, the bathroom was well ventilated and properly lighted with a good shower. I do not like the scented shower jells they supply at most if not all Best Western hotels. A good bar of soap with out a lot of perfume would be better and a little bottle of shampoo. I was impressed with the size and quality of the TV. We normally only watch the news, but it is a step up from other hotels we have stayed at. As for the breakfast, it was a lot better than most places we have stayed at considering that you don't have a full kitchen. Also, very good coffee and that is important to the average traveler. Over all, it was a good stay. the only problem was no elevator to the second floor which is a big problem for older people. it's a tough climb with luggage. Oh yes, adequate parking but no enough lighting outside and in the back.

    « Great room, poor service, good hot breakfast »

    The room was really nice, the staff that cleans the rooms were nice but the receptionists were not friendly. Also one was smoking right by the front doors and even tried to hide his cigarette when we passed. Good spread of hot and cold breakfast. Very good waffles. Shower/tub combo in the King bed room had a shower head from the sealing and a regular one from the wall. Other than the grumpy receptionists our stay was good.

    I travel for a living and try and stay at BW when I can. I really enjoyed this location. Comfortable bed great pillows. And I loved the shower, had two shower heads one straight down and the other off the wall like all others. Nice deep tub and very clean. I'm going to give this hotel a very high mark because it is lower than average prices and all the above. Great location as well. Ellensburg is always booked, stay here it's a better hotel any ways.

    « Great Staff! »

    I arrived very early in the day (hours prior to check-in), and was completely exhausted. I was greeted by one of the staff at check-in who was very friendly and strived to accommodate my request for an early check-in. Although the hotel was at maximum capacity, she was able to accommodate us with an early check-in, which was really a life saver. The room was very clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. I did struggle having a good Wi-Fi connection-- seemed to keep dropping, and the room was not well set-up with lighting at a vanity. Would definitely recommend to others traveling in the area.

    « Surprised at quality »

    After some reviews I read I expected to be a bit let down--but the room was very spacious (a suite), and everything was clean and up-to-date. The bed was really comfy, and although the property is close to the Interstate it was quiet. Excellent room.

    « Good quality accommodations at a fair price »

    The Good: The Best Western Brand has upped their game in recent years and this location is a good example of it. Very spacious rooms, clean, and well maintained facility. The pool and hot tub, although small, was a nice touch and welcome relief after 4 days out on the trails in the area. The breakfast is the standard "free breakfast" meal that many hotels in this class of service offer these days. Nothing spectacular, but the juice and coffee are fine. I never understand why these establishments cannot find a good egg product to offer that at least pretends to be real. The Bad: The biggest disappointment was the staff. We discovered our TV was not operating and upon contacting the front desk we were met with with a very unsympathetic "Sorry about that." Wow, that's the best you can say? No maintenance staff on site to help with the issue. When I asked how they were going to compensate me for not having a pretty important component of a room operational the desk person offered the "Manager's Special" price, which was a whopping 10% discount. So, I guess if you want to pay the "Manager's Special" price don't expect your TV to work. If I wanted something better (which I did) I had to speak to the manager in the morning. Well, the manager wasn't around in the morning so that didn't work. In the end we did get another 10% taken off but it was like pulling teeth to get it and the "manager" was unapologetic. It's not the amount of the discount as much as the way it was handled that was disappointing. A good stay tainted by bad customer service.

    « Not Happy »

    We are seniors and we are up early and on the road early. We also like to stop early. As a result of this, when I book a Hotel/Motel, I always request an early check-in. I do realize this does not guarantee you an early room, but generally, they try to accommodate. We stay at B/W almost exclusively when travel in Can. or USA. We arrived at Che Elum around 1:00 p.m. When I went to check-in at the front desk I was told check-in was 4:00 p.m. I said you don't have nothing? She replied No! She than said come back at 3:00 maybe then. I the mentioned I had early check-in request, and she said, come back at 3, and it;s first come first served. We are travelling that way more often and thought this was a great time fo day to stop. WE won't be stopping there anymore. Shows the importance of first impressions. Other than that the hotel was great. The rooms were nice, and they were clean. No problem with anything else. But that was enough for us? Most B/W try hard to accommodate our early arrival, and by early, I mean after 12 noon.

    « Disappointing stay »

    The room was extraordinary but I have mobility problems, and they did not honor my request on the website for a first floor room. Instead I was put up on the second floor, and had to navigate stairs with a new knee while trying to pack my luggage laptop, etc. up the stairs. Thanks to Christ who was extraordinarily helpful and made sure I did not carry my luggage back down to car. Hotel has no elevator and bottom floor was packed with people working on the Snoqualmie Pass. If you havemobility problems. make sure they honor your first floor reservation on the web site and at the Cle Elum Hotel

    « Great stay »

    We stayed at the BW Snowcap Lodge the night before a backpacking trip and we very pleased. The hotel does not have an elevator, and we had our big packs, so it was nice that the front desk asked us if we would like a room on the first floor. We had a king room with a separate sitting area. Everything was in good condition and well maintained. No complaints at all! There are a few things that we especially appreciated. In the sitting area was a mini fridge and microwave. There is a Safeway next door, so we got a few last minute food items and were able to store them properly. Also, there is a dark towel as well as an individual makeup remover wipe provided. I usually bring my own so I don't mess up hotels white towels, so this was nice that they had thought of that. They also provide a ziplock bag of older towels that are for your use to clean up gear etc. In an area full of outdoor adventure, this was an especially nice touch! As for the basics, the bed was very comfortable, plenty of outlets and lighting, huge vanity area separate from the bathroom, comfortable couch, ac worked well, and carpet etc were clean.

    « Overall very average »

    The hotel itself was very average. Nothing extra special. The customer service upon check in was pretty much none existent. She basically kept her head down and checked us in quietly with no engagement of conversation. Seemed she was not happy to be at work that day. The room itself was comfortable and quiet.

    « Short stay in a quality hotel »

    We were there for only one night and arrived late at that, so we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel, but we were impressed. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. The breakfast was good with the usual scrambled eggs, sausage, etc. and it tasted pretty fresh. Everyone seems to mention the Safeway. We did need a couple of things and its a short walk across the parking lot which is convenient. We would stay here again.

    « Clean, comfortable room for the night »

    Room was on the 2nd floor, easy access to the parking lot, room was at the end of the hallway, very quiet, nice-sized tub/shower. Conveniently located right next to a grocery store, with gas stations and coffee shops, a mile or two down the road. Staff was nice. Biggest complaint was that someone seemed to be smoking in the room downstairs from us late at night, and the smell started to come into our bathroom. Closed the bathroom door overnight, which helped and then aired out the room in the morning. Told the staff in the morning, who had apparently heard more than 1 complaint about that person smoking inside their room/smell of smoke, so they were very apologetic but not a lot they could do. Despite this inconvenience (second hand smoke triggers my asthma), if I need to stay in the area again, I would feel comfortable staying here.

    This was a very nice hotel at a convenient location. Nice rooms. I will plan to stop there again on trips East now that I know how to find it (everybody around there describes it as "next to Safeway". The process of completing this review, however seems to go on too long.

    I can't rave enough about this hotel. I didn't want to leave!!! It's comfortable and so clean. I just wanted to hang out in the hotel room and enjoy the quiet instead of continuing on my trip. Also, it's locatetion near restaurants and a grocery store was an additional plus.

    « Ritz Carlton of Cle Elum »

    Not really the Ritz, but compared to every other hotel in this town, it's very nice. I've stayed in just about every hotel in Cle Elum and finally had the opportunity to stay at this property. It books early and can be difficult to find a room and now I understand why. It's modern (rare for Cle Elum), new(er), has a beautiful indoor pool, cardio workout room, and gigantic guest rooms. Complimentary wifi, chilled bottled water and fresh baked cookies for all guests. My king room with a suite/sitting area had a sink/wet bar, mini fridge and microwave. The bathroom floor and tub/shower were marble. The sofa was leather. It was quiet, clean, beyond comfortable and not that much more money than other hotels in the area. Breakfast was a little better than the standard carb fest that most hotels offer. Pre-made omelettes and sausage were part of the small buffet. The only thing to note for travelers who may need an elevator is they do not have one. Stairs only, so request a first floor room if that's an issue.

    « Unfriendly front desk »

    Our group had booked 6 different rooms back in January for a wedding in the area. We all arrived at different times and days. We all arrived earlier than check-in time stated to be 4PM. That is an hour later than hotels I have visited. We found the front desk team quite rigid and not very friendly or compassionate only repeating hotel policy. Rooms come available as they are cleaned, not all at 4PM. All of our group independently said they had a similar front desk experience. One sat in the lobby after this experience and saw another customer arrive and were issued a room. When the front desk was confronted about this they were told they had priority because of a wedding. Well we were part of another wedding but got no such priority. Based on this experience I will use a different hotel when staying in Cle Elum, WA. This was nothing like other Best Western stays in other locations which had always been favorable. That was the reason why we picked this hotel in Cle Elum, WA.

    « Don't Plan on Breakfast if you Work in the AM »

    The gentlemen at the front desk gave us an incredibly hard time when we when to get food to go prior to the 6:30 AM breakfast start. A majority of business folks are up and on the road prior to 6:30 AM and having no breakfast after spending over $100 per night in unacceptable. I hope the owner gets this fixed - we'll see.

    « Good Facility But .... »

    This is a nice motel, but there have been some changes in staff and the overall service and pleasantness of the stay has declined. Finding HAIR in by breakfast was also not a good way to start the day. I think that is due to the fact the young man at the desk has to also do kitchen duty and was wearing some strange leather looking cap. Nice guy but multitasking at that time of the morning is probably a poor management decision. I like the pool, Hot Tub, the Breakfast is standard, room rates I thought were a bit high for this property.

    « A cut above the average Best Western, and VERY convenient to the horse park, but don't plan to breakfast here »

    The only way this hotel could be more convenient to the Washington State Horse Park is if the hotel were IN the park! Literally located across the street, it's almost as convenient as staying on the grounds, and far more comfortable. This was my second stay. As it was Memorial Day weekend, the suite I had last year was unavailable, so I booked a regular room. My room was still quite spacious, and well-appointed. The bed was comfortable and linens were fresh. Towels were fluffy and amply provided. I did, however, miss the robe provided with the suite I had last year! Like many mid-range hotels, this property has gone from providing individual toiletries to a wall dispenser in the shower. I think it's tacky, and it's a pet peeve of mine, as there's no way of knowing what is actually in the dispenser - the buttons are simply labeled "shampoo," "body wash," etc. I can't recall if I had breakfast at this property on my last stay, but I did this time. I wish I hadn't. Not only was the selection a notch or two below the average offering at this price point, the "omelet" I selected had a 2.5" long black hair resting on it. I didn't notice until I had already taken a bite - ugh! And I say "omelet," because I wonder whether any eggs were harmed in the making of it - it had a rather unnatural texture and the filling was unidentifiable. Probably, it was a frozen product that had been defrosted and put in the warmer. The sweet rolls offerings featured scones that looked as though they'd make better doorstops than edibles. There was no attendant on duty during the 15 minutes or so I was there, and ALL of the tables were loaded with crumbs, despite there was only one other couple in the room. I had to wipe down a table before sitting down.

    « Nice, clean hotel »

    We needed a hotel for a 1-night stay in Cle Elum. We were attending a wedding and didn't want to spend $800 staying at the Suncadia Resort with a 2-night minimum stay. The Best Western was very nice for the money. The room was clean and spacious and they have a complimentary breakfast as well. Only complaint was the TV is located at the end of the bed so you can't see if from the sitting area and it's sits so low that you can't actually see it while you're laying in bed. Otherwise it's a good value.

    « Everything great except the bed »

    We reserved our room and then had a change of plans, but since we missed the deadline by 2 hours, were told that we couldn't cancel. So while that was irritating, we figured if they were going to charge us, we might as well stay. Check in went easily, guy at the front desk was very nice, though his hair was greasy. The room was nice and while the bed seemed very cushy and comfy it was high and hard for a short person to get on. It was too soft and pillowy and if I got on it, it wanted to roll me back off. My husband and I had a terrible sleep and couldn't wait to get out of there. The breakfast was free and fine, the hot tub felt good but the bed made the visit a negative.

    Room was very very clean and spacious. King bed was very comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Shower was great. Breakfast was decent and included waffles, sausage, biscuits & gravy, eggs, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal (instant), breads, juices, coffee. Staff went through several times while we were eating to make sure things stayed stocked. We had a room with the large tub for two - and yes - it was truly a large and comfortable soaking tub. If you plan to use that, bring your own bath salts. Even though it was not far from the freeway, we could not hear freeway sounds. Room had an iHome player to attach an iPod to (if you like your own music) - TV had no ability to play DVR. Things to be aware of: It is a two story hotel, but no elevator. If you have mobility issues, make sure that is known when you book so you can get a ground floor. There are no dresser drawers (though we don't usually use them) Room walls are not sound-proof. You can easily hear muffled conversations or walking upstairs.

    Breakfast doesn't start till 6:30 or a little after. Most hotels start their breakfast at 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. This hotel does not want they working people to stay at the hotel. They know that the working people leave for work early so they serve their breakfast late. Furniture beds carpeting only deserve 3 stars.

    « Well looked after at the Snowcap lodge... »

    Two couples traveling. We had a very nice stay at the hotel. Rooms were large, clean, modern. One couple needed a handicap accessible room. When we each booked separately, I asked if we could be near the other couple and on the first floor. They said they would note it but couldn't promise. We were right across the hall. We got the sense that the staff would go the extra step for you. A couple of down side comments, 1) the hot tub is out of commission, check if it's fixed if that's why you are going, 2) no elevator, we were on the first floor so it didn't matter, but know that, if carrying your gear up a flight of stairs is a big deal, 3) breakfast room a bit small, or maybe the tables too large...just a limited number of seats if it's busy. But all of these are not a big deal and to us, the service and nice room (and the evening fresh cookies) certainly made this a good choice.

    « A Surprising Gem of a Place to Stay! »

    Bottom Line Up Front - a superb establishment that I highly recommend and would definitely stay at again. I am normally a Hilton chain stayer as I travel a lot for work and value the consistency - particularly when going to a new place - I know what I am going to get for the price I am paying. We needed at least 2 rooms near Roslyn, WA as we were going snowmobiling with our daughter and grand-kids. My wife picked out the Snowcap Lodge and I tell you what, this is a superb establishment. Staff - Very friendly and very responsive to client needs. Every staff member I met or even passed by greeted me and were very helpful, from getting more food at the breakfast when they ran low, needed more towels, or directions. Rooms - Rooms were larger than anticipated. They were fully equipped - refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, hairdryer, satellite flat screen (note, the hairdryer in room 214 was broken). They pretty much thought of everything. There were special towels they called "Rag Bag" that you can use to wipe down your boots or messes without messing up the nice ones. The beds were comfy but the pillows were not so hot, there wasn't much of a choice and were hard. Food - Breakfast - the breakfast was pretty much standard hotel breakfast bar food - waffles, omelettes, sausage, biscuits, gravy, cereal, bagels, etc. Nothing super great but better than most. They put out fresh cookies, hot chocolate and cider in the evenings from 6-9pm. There were usually at least 4 types of cookies and they were all good. A nice touch - take the kids to the pool and the old folks eat cookies and drink coco while we watch.... Facilities - heated indoor swimming pool was a little cool for adults but the grand kids didn't seem to mind. The fitness room was well equipped and ready for use. The hot tub was out of commission and would have been a welcome addition. They had pool towels so you did 't have to use your room towels. Nearby/with-in easy walking distance - Safeway is across the street, maybe one minute walk, door to door. Dining super close - McDonalds, Taco Bell, Burger King, Thai, Mexican. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely stay here again if I am in the area!!!

    Stayed a night so that we could enjoy the snow activities in Suncadia with a budget. It was a good choice, just about 10 minutes from the resort. My teenage kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub after playing in the snow all day. We should have payed better attention upon checking in when they asked if we preferred a top floor or bottom floor stay... next time, choose top floor if you don't have young kids. If you do have young kids, please choose bottom floor. We had a child above us jumping, running, who-knows-what, then crying before bed up until about 11pm. Then at 6:30/7am, right back at it. The hotel was full of kids, and quite booked so we didn't complain knowing that it's expected and everyone is there to enjoy themselves... so don't expect a quiet stay. Enjoyed the complimentary cookies and warm cider that night. And breakfast was crowded but pretty good for complimentary breakfast. One thing we wish we had an extra blanket or two. Bed was cold feeling like sleeping with two sheets on us.

    12/31/15 I booked this hotel last minute to find some snow for my kids on Christmas break. When you walk into the hotel it smells like warm baked cookies :) (which they put out in the evening with hot apple cider) it's inviting with a burning fireplace by the entrance and a staff that greets you right as you walk through the door, whether they're busy or not. Checking in was a breeze and there were no hidden fees additional to what I reserved online. ( btw you are not charged on your card for booking online until you check in) I got a king suite with king bed and a sofa bed (sleeps 4 but is actually perfect for 3 people) I booked room 127 (first floor is quite, close to everything, and you don't have to deal with stairs, since there is no elevator) the room was spacious, and has a microwave, mini fridge, amazing cable options for tv, and the beds were so comfortable. Free wifi was great, and the pool was perfect with a heated room and hot tub too. The pool goes from 3' to 5' so younger kids can enjoy the pool, In the same parking lot as the hotel is a Safeway, Burger King, Taco Bell, and a great Mexican restaurant called Los Cabos. We went out to eat at Los Cabos which had great food and grabbed room snacks at Safeway. These places are very close and you can walk to them. They have breakfast in the morning from 630-930, I haven't tried it so I can't comment on that part. I called the front desk several times asking for different things, (a cork screw, extra blanket for sofa bed, and info on wifi which takes a few minutes for them to set up) and they were gracious and helped me with a smile :) I usually don't do reviews however I felt like some reviews on here didn't do this hotel justice :)

    « Probably the best choice in Cle Elum »

    We came on a last minute trip for the snow and appreciated that although the site showed the hotel was booked, when I called the front desk found me a room. It's close to Suncadia for fun activities and good food. Kids enjoyed indoor pool. Service and room was good. Only complaint was that breakfast left a lot to be desired. We didn't bother with it after the first morning's experience.

    Overall stay was good. Only issue was the pillows, they were hard and a little overstuffed so your neck is kind of at a severe angle; woke up with achey necks however it's not like we couldn't bring our own pillows (we're a little diva about our pillows). Other than that, everything else was great!

    « No Elevator - Poor Breakfast - Comfy Bed »

    This BW has no elevator - so be sure to book far enough in advance to get a first floor room if you have difficulty with stairs. The breakfast was below average in both quality and presentation. The bed was comfy and we had a suite for a very good price. The cookies upon evening arrival was a nice touch.

    « 24 hour swimming pool! »

    Nice room with free wifi, fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Soft and firm pillows on the bed. Morning breakfast if you are an early riser. The pool is not obvious when you walk in the lobby, so you don't feel like you are on display, unlike many hotels. And the pool is always open.

    « a bit dissapointing »

    hot tub way too hot (above 104) pool extremely cold. treated rudely when trying to check in, floor mat in bathroom was wet, and knobs missing on air/heater unit. had room right next to outside door so it was loud every time someone came in and out of hotel all night long.Beds were harder than normal. everything else was fine, but it wasn't a great experience or one I want to repeat. I love Best Westerns and will continue to use them in spite of this.

    « What a treat! »

    Best Western Hotels can be somewhat dicey at times. Snow Cap Lodge was NOT one of those. Everything was top notch; from the cleanliness to the linens to the customer service. The location is great, too! A supermarket in the same parking lot, McDonalds right next door and an espresso place across the street. And to top it off a **** dining establishment two blocks down the road. What a great date night my husband and I had! Only complaint is the pillows were way too firm. Great for propping myself up in bed to read but not so god to sleep on. We usually travel with our own pillows, didn't this time, but now we know.

    « Misrepresented room at reservation »

    Not going to rewrite...see past comments. You do NOT have a handicapped room...a big bathroom with chrome bars does not meet ADA standards. Misrepresented space, furniture, and access when making reservation. But the final insult is that the average person/child cannot get in and out of the beds...impossible for am handicapped person. Don't go there

    « NICE HOTEL »

    This hotel was very clean and looked like it had been recently remodeled. Nice location with a Safeway store and gas station next door. Also several restaurants within walking distance. We will definitely stay again!

    « Great beds, free water, and repetitive breakfast »

    This is probably the best motel in town. The beds and rooms are comfortable. I really like that they provide two bottles of water in the rooms. Sadly they've started providing the same breakfast everyday and that gets really old when you're staying there for four days. The omelettes have a ham based paste inside which gets hard to handle each morning. Message to management: Please vary breakfast menus the way you used to.

    Great stay - quiet, nice room. All amenities needed. Front desk staff seemed reserved and one seemed a bit grumpy. Bed was comfortable. Hotel was very clean. Nice location just off highway - didn't hear a lot of road noise even though I was on the highway side which was great.

    « Snowcap Lodge Cle Elum Wa »

    Nice hotel in a peaceful small town just off I90. Lobby area big, comfortable, and right next to breakfast. Cheerful people, and a quick check-in. Room was clean, with comfortable furniture, good king bed, and bathroom was very nice. Wife really liked the shower head out of the ceiling, nice touch. Toilet, modern quick flush, no drama. Quiet surroundings, and quiet room was suprising ,considering how close to freeway the hotel. Good tip, cheapest gas across the street at Safeway.

    « Comfort and amenities »

    This is the Best value in town if you want room to relax. The rooms are large and comfortable. There is breakfast,internet, swimming and exersize. I prefer to stay here when they offer a discount, then price is right for us. It costs more, but breakfast would be a lot for a party of 2 or more, so it isn't a bad price if you use all the amenities. You will find nice people working here and enough coffee to satisfy! We will be sure to stay here in the future, if the price stays at reasonable point.

    « SnoCap Lodge »

    We often stay at the Sno Cap Lodge. It is the best accommodations in the area & is located close to dining, & a major grocery store within walking distance. We often bring our grandson's, they enjoy swimming & the hearty breakfast.

    « Awesome stay »

    I stayed here three nights for a golf weekend with a group of friends. The room was very comfortable and clean. The leather couch made it extra good. Friendly and helpful staff. The only complaint would be that breakfast had the same main items - biscuits and gravy and cheese omelettes - every morning. But they were good!

    « Best of the "Best" Western's I've visited »

    Several of us stayed while attending a wedding at Suncadia. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were all attentive. We didn't have any issues while there and everyone was pleased. I would recommend it highly to anyone staying in the area.

    « A wedding stay »

    A great week-end at a great hotel! The staff were so very helpful and totally customer service oriented. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Fourteen family members stayed and everyone enjoyed the hotel. The breakfast was amazing, even fresh cut fruit and fresh waffles...YUM! The guys loved having the great choices for breakfast too.

    « Will stay here again, but don't arrive before 4! »

    Overall, I had a very good stay at this hotel. It was clean, updated, and comfortable. The only complaint is that they have a very late check-in time of 4:00. I got there at 2:30. I had to wait nearly an hour for a room. At first they weren't very friendly about it, as in they really had no interest to help, but then as they realized I was just going to sit in the lobby and bug them for internet access (which I couldn't get until check in!) then they worked harder to get me checked in a half an hour before their "official" (and ridiculous) check-in time. They should at least provide internet access before then because I'm sure I'm not the only guest who pops in mid-afternoon expecting their room. Can't comment on breakfast. Didn't even look at it. Was very happy with the room, but the check in time is extreme.

    « Front desk needs training in customer service »

    having worked in hotels for many years, in several positions I know how important it is to give the guest a positive first impression...polite, accomodating, problem solving without snippiness..this front desk person was way too young to be in his "manager" position, obviously had no training in how to help a guest without being rude and impolite over a slight issue with early check in..I stay at many hotels, this young man left me with a bad impression of this hotel despite how upscale, clean, and nice it is..was there for a wedding and had driven many days and was tired. Needed to check in early, was met instead with a disdainful, self-important rudeness, and not accomodating. would have changed the entire experience there for me
