It worked.

The staff were friendly, and the continental breakfast was nice. The hot water in the shower felt good. The TV service was poor, so now I know not to order Verizon's TV service! Also, the hotel didn't have an elevator.

1980's Conference Center

This is a unusual hotel - very dated. It has an old, conference hotel feel. A little creepy with a vague smell of cigarette smoke. The view of huge petroleum containers was weird. But the room was exceptionally large with a huge 2-person tub. Vaulted ceiling. It was clean, the bed was comfortable. May be a bit overpriced for what you get. I would only recommend this place to people who can handle adventure!

Okay, but right on the train tracks

Pretty average stay. Room was clean. Front desk staff friendly. Average breakfast, as a tea drinker though I would have wanted some caffeinated tea choices. Only real complaint was that during my stay they were doing major construction on the road and it's very close to the train track. If you have a hard time sleeping make sure you ask for one of the "quieter" rooms.

nice, clean place

It was clean and spacious with a microwave and fridge. I keep thinking this typical room costs about $99/nt but I guess the going rate is now $129. which I think is a little pricey for Wenatchee.

Family get together

There was a miscommunication on the cost of the room. Apparently the booking required a military ID to get the $77 a night charge. This was not clear when I booked the room. The manager did reduce the regular cost of the room by $7.00. The beds were very comfortable. The room was initially clean but the second day the cleaning was below par. Having a kcup coffee maker in the room was nice but there were two of us and they only leave one regular coffee and one decaf. And on the second day they didn't leave coffee creamer.

Nice getaway

Our stay was great, except for the front desk being understaffed. They did not pick up room phone calls all the time. We were calling because we hadn't been told how to log into the wireless Internet.

Good, reasonable rates for this type of hotel

I usually stay here when I come to Wenatchee, and the best part is the staff. They are friendly & helpful. Because Wenatchee is a great walking town, I don't rent a car. They send a cab to pick me up at the airport, which is very convenient. The room is always clean, and even though it's on a busy street, it's quiet in the room at night, and I always get a good night's sleep.

Downtown - anything you want that Wenatchee offers. It's not a long walk at all. But best of all, I like walking along the river front - summer or winter, I enjoy it.
