Our stay at this hotel was our 10th night on the road with a 10 month old. We were tired and wanting to settle down for the night only to find that we did not have a reservation. Our front desk rep, Konstantin, went above and beyond for us. Not only did he book us in our room without wasting...

For a ten year old hotel in a cow town/college town it wasn't too bad!. The rooms were large and clean, the beds were comfortable and if you're lucky enough to get the side of the hotel with the creek you'll have a nice little view. The hotel was fully booked and yet our room was very quiet. As we...

Stayed for one night traveling across Washington state. Check in was great - the clerk (can't remember her name) was fantastic and friendly. She offered suggestions of places to see and shop in town, as well as recommendations of places to eat. Room was clean and very well appointed. Hotel in general was in good state of repair and clean....

We come to Ellensburg every year for the CWU Homecoming game and over the past 18 years have stayed in some questionable hotels, however the Holiday In Express is my Favorite and has been our hotel of choice since it opened (Minus one year when they were booked up) The Staff is always friendly and helpful. This year Konstantine was...

It takes amazing service for me to give 5 stars and this hotel had it in spades. Konstantine was outstanding. I made many changes and updates to our reservations and he always helped me with grace. Breakfast was good, we slept soundly and the room was clean. There are spots in the hotel that need a fresh coat of paint,...

Enjoyed our overnight stay during our trip to eastern Washington. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room was large and quiet. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express type. Desk staff were helpful in giving local information and directions. We would stay there again when in this area.

We stayed here for a concert at the gorge and to visit our daughter at CWU. On check in the staff was very friendly. We arrived around 1 and check in wasn't until 3. They didn't have rooms ready, but they checked us in and gave us the keys and offered to call us when it was ready. Nice we...

My husband and I always stay at this hotel when we drive through, or when we want to stay a few days. It was our 40th wedding anniversary, and we decided this would be one place we would stay. It was a very warm week end, and we couldn't wait to get to our room. When we got up there,...
