Looking for great atmosphere and excellent food then stop by the Yellow Church Cafe for soup salads and steaks.

Intimate Dinning with a local feel. Great Itallian food at affordable prices. An Ellensburg favorite.
The Palace Cafe
This restaurant has a very local feel. From the old western decorations to the food. A great place for burgers and sandwiches to satisfy any palate.

Great Hotel

Excellent hotel, staff was nice. Lower rating due to they cancelled my prepaid reservation because of an influx of guests for weather. reserved room in a lesser hotel. Obtained room & upgrade the next night. Front desk staff was awesome. Working on getting refund. Will stay there again.

overpriced and I did not get what I paid for

I paid for a king bed with a hot tub room. It was the most expensive listed with for this hotel. Instead of reserving what I paid for I was reserved in a standard room and no hot tub, however no price adjustment was made. I was overcharged for my room by 40.00 The hotel representative acknowledged that I paid the rate for their hot tub room, but since it was not properly reserved they gave those rooms to other guests. No adjustment was offered and I was stuck with less then a room that I paid for. Then I was asked if I wanted a receipt and then told I could not have one because I was and "Online" customer. unresponsive and disrespectful. Will not go there again and may not use your online service again. Poor experience all around

Mediocre

Room looked worn, bedding and towels thin. Generic shampoo and conditioner. Room did not feel clean. Eggs were spongy and quality of food not great. For $144 in Ellensburg, not good buy. Found out later there is a new Best Western for less.

Will definitely stay again!

Very friendly staff, very clean rooms, perfect location. We stayed here for a concert at the Gorge. Usually we camp at the venue, but because it was later in the year than usual, we decided to play it safe and stay in a hotel. This place was perfect...about 30 minutes away, easy in/out, and right next door to Starbucks. Our only complaint was a very loud upstairs neighbor who was stomping around their room at 1 a.m., but that happens sometimes. Next time we will just request the top floor. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was larger than we expected with everything we needed, including a fold out couch! Microwave, fridge/freezer even! We will definitely stay there again if we do another concert when the weather may not be great for tent camping.

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Attending 50th class reunion. Hotel has great access to restaurants, gas stations, fast food, ect. I checked in late Friday night and in the morning while I was taking my shower I noticed mold around the edge of the tub. I notified the cleaning people and they said they would take care of it .... NOT. They did nothing. I checked out Sunday morning without taking my shower as I didnt want to be exposed to the mold. At the front desk I informed them of the situation. They said they would check into it. I left to return home.
