This motel was recommended to us by a realtor who was helping us find a house to live in. We have been here for 1 week and are going to stay a few more days until our new place is ready. The staff is friendly. The rooms are nice. A full fridge, a large microwave, sink and a huge stove....

I received some money so we decided to check out a motel for a week. We were advised El Rancho was the best deal. Hmmm, not convinced...but it's getting cold outside...we liked having the huge kitchenette. I hadn't had a kitchen so excitedly we stayed a week and 2 days. We left on Thanksgiving day. Out of money someone helped...

Disclaimer: I never actually stayed at this place. That's because I had a TERRIBLE experience booking with them, comprised of multiple twists and turns, that ended in me being out $110 bucks because I couldn't find the Quality Inn they'd transferred me to because they were overbooked, and with no one available at El Rancho front desk at 11:15 pm,...

It's a fine motel if you are in the middle of the night and you have to stop somewhere to get some sleep but that's all. The room was also quite spacious, which is nice. Ah, and the stuff was really friendly, even that we came in quite late.

I have been staying at the El Rancho Motel for 15 years, every time I go though Moses Lake. Not once have I ever had a bad experience. I would give them an excellent rating. They were always friendly, the rooms were always clean, non smoking rooms meant non smoking. And they were cheap. Back in May 2015 the El...

This is a cheap/budget hotel with every amenity that you could ask for, The beds are clean and comfortable. ANd the price is unbeatable. This is a great spot to crash an overnighter without breaking the bank.

This is the second time I have stayed at the El Rancho in Moses Lake in 10 years. The cliché that looks can be deceiving applies here... but in a good way. The rooms are very basic, but comfortable. The owner is pleasant and helpful. The prices cannot be beat. $38 per night for this no frills, yet has all...

I have now stayed at El Rancho at least half a dozen times, and I always have a very pleasant experience. Terry is hands on about every little thing, and I have received immediate attention to any little detail that needs to be handled--graciously and kindly, I might add. I'm not sure about "no frills" since I appreciate the spaciousness...

El Rancho Motel is a fine place to stay if you are passing through Moses Lake, WA. Clean rooms, decent mattresses, quiet, well insulated, easy access. Owner is polite and does the cleaning himself. I will stay here again.

From a hunters point, the El Rancho is the best. A great place to come "Home" to ,warm shower, good beds, and if you desire a place to cook. Terry has come to the aid to myself and partner when stranded in the sand,,,,,Thanks. It was even his wedding anniversary, so a tip and great thanks he has earned, plus...
