Sparse and Lacking Room

When I chose this hotel, I did it for the value and the convenience of location. I booked the room for our 3rd year anniversary, so the focus was on the location, not the room. The amenities listed were missing and incorrect: queen bed, we go a full. We own a queen bed and we are averaged sized people; lets just say the bed was a tad small. Not to mention it was more like a Murphy bed with only a mattress and no support. There was suppose to be a blowdryer, there was none; small towels and little to no sheets -had to ask the front desk for more blankets and got one; the floors and furniture were not cleaned; there was a huge crack in the door, so anyone could see inside, but we managed to fix it with clothes. The whole setup was a complete let down. It also didn't help that with how sparse the room was, the BRIGHT orange room did not help settle us in. A lot more could have been done with the room and it felt like a waiting room, more than a place to sleep. I will not recommend this room for anyone, other than those who just need a cheap place to crash.

Thunderbird

An austere overnight dwelling. They have the handicapped parking concentrated in one area so if your room is near there its an inconvenience. There is no shade near the swimming pool. I never saw anyone use it. If I was on a short visit to Ellensburg, I would stay there again.

Hardest bed ever!

Very nice, helpful staff....clean rooms...EXTREMELY hard beds. We went camping after staying at the hotel and I would say the beds were barely a step up from sleeping on the hard ground. Obviously, the price is low and that's why I picked it, but for $60 I expect to have a comfortable sleeping area so I can sleep through the night. Otherwise I woulda just went to a campground that night as well. If u choose this hotel based on price, I highly suggest bringing something padded to sleep on.

Rude Staff and Dirty Sheets

We were generally pleased with the hotel until we went to climb into bed. It was obvious the sheets had not been changed as they were dirty with hair all over. I called the front desk and described the situation. She said, "There is nothing I can do about that now." When I protested she reluctantly said, "If you come down I can give you some clean sheets." I did that and made the bed myself. When I told the morning person about the sheets while I was checking out she acted as if there was nothing wrong with that and asked me, "Other than that how was your stay?"

a roof over your head, a bed to sleep on

Staff was very friendly and processed reservations efficiently. They woke us up at 11:30 at night, though, to talk about bringing over keys for the second room. Second room had strong BAD odor, a mixture of fresh, poorly aired rug shampoo and cat urine. We missed having an alarm clock in the room.

Good value for the money.

Some of the reviews for this hotel were very negative. We tried it anyway. Yes it is an older facility, but no it did not smell bad and the rooms were clean. The microwave and fridge were nice extras even though we didn't use them and although a bit outdated the rooms were still maintained nicely. For the price and location (5 minutes from the University), it was perfect for the needs of my wife and myself. If we go back to Ellensburg for work we would be more than happy to stay there again.
