second time staying here-trying something different next visit

The woman at the front desk was efficient, kind, personable, caring, and apologetic. Housekeeping does not clean mirrors. First room's floor was not vacuumed well, freezer was nearly frozen over, and t.v. was not dusted, but the second room we were offered was much cleaner, yet they still did not clean the entire mirror in the bathroom or on the door. Sheets were very clean, and the microwave and table tops, too. Breakfast is not as good as previous visit. Small amount of O.J and milk is kept in the carafe at all times so people are only filling cups half way trying to make it last and share, and when a request was made it was quickly filled a few inches more but not even half way, so people kept trying to share the small amount. No bacon or sausage but there were dry biscuits with decent sausage gravy (not from a can), and two kinds of mini muffins (tan and dark brown) which both tasted like banana. I guess they were old and stored together. Two waffle makers were available and a very good strawberry mixture to top it. Pre-made folded over eggs (didn't try them because they looked pre-frozen). So, here's the wrap-up we have stayed here twice because we like the slightly longer walk to town and my teen enjoys a place that serves breakfast. This time, on the second morning we just couldn't bring ourselves to try it again and drove to the other side of town for McD's breakfast sandwiches. If the breakfast isn't good, then there are other comparable places to stay without it. There is an outdoor pool that looked very good but we didn't use it this time. Without decent food, my son would rather try something different and so would I, even if it costs $20 more per night.

Nice family trip

We traveled big family of 7 and booked 2 rooms. This hotel exactly matches it 2*. Very comfortable location near our main way and not far from tourist activities. Rooms were bigger than usual in 2* Staff was very friendly. May be a bit expensive, but Leavenworth is expensive in any time. In general, my expectations are fully justified.

Showing it's age

The staff tries here but this place is REALLY showing it's age, I stayed there 40 years ago and not much but fresh paint has changed, the floors creak the AC is really noisy, the "quiet time after 10PM" apparently didn't apply to the family in the room above us and the place smells like an old smoked in hotel. Time to knock it down and start over. We stayed two nights, July 3rd and 4th and the room rates were $104 and $156.............260 bucks for a two night stay and I really didn't feel comfortable using the shower. There are not a lot of hotel choices in the area and the vast majority are old and outdated just like this one. Stay in Wenatchee and drive into town...............

Don't eat the biscuits and gravy for breakfast! Other than that it was average I guess.

A nice place to stay

We had a very nice time in a very clean and comfortable room. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The continental breakfast was well laid out and nicely attended with a staff member to help out. The location was just a little bit further than I like to walk from the downtown area but it was very doable.
