The staff was good, the other guests were not.

I was in town for a court hearing in the morning and the people in the hall and next door were loud, sang and played a guitar. The same song poorly played and over and over. Until another guest started screaming, I called the desk and she said she would see to it. However about an hour later it started again and ran until three AM. If I was in town for a party it was fine however I was not. Great pet policy.

an oasis

Was unlucky enough to plan a weekend in Yakima during record heat wave (103-105). Thank heavens for a lovely, well maintained pool. Would've died for sure without it!

Would stay again

We were in for just a weekend to look at a med school in the area and if we have to go back we would stay there again. It was convenient to highways, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly.

Won't go back

It wasn't awful, but the bed was uncomfortable and the pillows worse. Other than that, there was nothing to recommend this hotel.

Big rooms but needs a refresh

The rooms are large but the fixtures and furniture are getting old. There was a kitchenette in the room which would be nice if you are staying for a few days but the stove and cabinets are so old it’s laughable. It reminded me of visiting my grandmother’s house. While we did not cook any meals, I did play around with the kitchenette to see if it worked and everything appeared to be in working order despite its age. The location is good. It is just off Yakima Street and is walking distance to the shops and businesses in the small downtown area. We stayed during the Fresh Hop Festival and it was an easy walk to the festival grounds. The staff was friendly and helpful at check-in and check-out. The free breakfast that came with the room is probably best skipped. It wasn’t very good and the selection was odd; it wasn’t a full American breakfast but didn’t have the usual items for a continental breakfast, it was just a mish mash of random food.

get what you pay for...

could be cool if the joint was updated. Need to put some money back into it and make it hip. They could have bands play on the pool island and have happy hour out by the pool. The sheets were kinda nasty and bed was a little bit too soft. Water came out of the facets hard and not even flow. sounds kinda picky, but it's details that make the place. Oh and the towels could be softer and bigger! :)
