We stayed here while attending the brew fest at iron horse brewery. The hotel is under major upgrades and construction so they get a pass on some items. The staff was/is wonderful. Bright, happy, knowledgeable and accommodating. The room was nice with fridge, microwave a bit dated but then again, they are currently upgrading. They had blackout shades that worked...

I came in late at night and my room was clean and with good internet. The morning staff had a good breakfast ready, and the front desk was very helpful. I will use this location again. Thank you, John Gentry

Not our normal hotel we go to when in Ellensburg but booked late for parents weekend and Holiday Inn was only hotel left. First, it's a beautiful hotel. Check in staff was nice (same guy in the afternoons). He was yelled at by person who swears they were sitting for 30 minutes waiting for someone to help them (they were...

I could not make it to Washington state University due to the whether problems going on around the time, so I decided to stop in Ellensburg for the night. The front desk was very nice and brought us anything we asked for. The rooms were also very clean and very nice and big. The only reason I did not give...

You don't notice most hotel nuances unless you are at an extreme, when they make or break a deal. For us, it was exhaustion. This hotel passed that test with great beds, a clean room, multitudes of comfy pillows and beautiful quiet. Only issue is the electric heaters, you can't just turn the fan on for white noise. That's the...

The room was nice and clean but the room was noisy. We could hear the guests (bathroom?) in the room above and on both sides all night long. Continental breakfast was more than continental with plenty to choose from.

Sorry about the extra noise - Hopefully it wasn't to much of an inconvenience!

We stayed a Friday night in a suite. The desk clerk let us know we were supposed to contact the hotel directly to let them know we needed a "pet" room, which is downstairs. He gave us an upper level room, as that was all that remained. The room was fine. Decor was stereotypical traditional, rather dated, but was clean...

I'm so sorry to hear about your pet. I'm glad your puppy made a full recovery. We take our guests (and their pets) safety seriously, and we'll see what we can do to make sure things like this don't happen again!

This was your basic Holiday Inn. Nothing special about this one with the exception of its right next to a Starbucks. Reading the other reviews about the beds I can confirm it is true. It's time to replace those things Holiday Inn. I hope you're listening... No other major complaints than that. You get what you pay for...
