Oh goodness, this hotel was so bad...where to start?!? The hotel sprawls a bit and we were in one of the rooms in the detached building towards the back near housekeeping. Despite the proximity to housekeeping, the room did not seem very clean. Carpets were almost sticky. We had no soap or toiletries when we checked in and only one...

This hotel is older but it is clean, the staff is friendly and has everything you need for a decent stay. The bed is comfy and the full of down pillows. You can tell this place was the place to stay in its day. Johnny's restaurant is a neat place with a full bar. The food however is mediocre at...

Right from the efficient check-in to the next days breakfast, this was a great stay. The Hotel is in a great location for Interstate access and also access to local restaurants. The room (a double queen) was well laid out with all the amenities needed (coffee, fridge & microwave). There is a small charge for the breakfast, but it was...

Nice place for functions... obviously pricey. Rooms were nice; but mine and others' closets were tiny - hangars would not fit in the depth of the closet... wash area extremely small. Daily breakfast... reasonable lounge.

But that was 20 years ago. The carpet is funky. The stains are many. The food is mediocre. The service at the front desk was grudgingly given. It needs a major overhaul. One easy thing... Get the front desk staff to smile. It is obvious they are not proud of the place now. I cannot recommend the place any longer.

We were very pleased with this hotel. Easy access to the freeway, on a main street, but very quiet. Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. There is a very nice outdoor pool. They have a decent buffet breakfast at a low price. I would stay there again if I were to return to Yakima.
