The place was really quite especially during the night. The staff was kind and welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfy. Really decent price for the value of the place. Great sleep quality. not in the newest condition, but if you saw the rest of the town this place is probably the only decent option.

Very comfy little place, not the newest or anything but really nice in terms of value and sleep quality. Also really calm and other tenants are respectful. Bedsheets are clean and bathroom is clean too. Nice towel design.

I was on my way to spokane when i decided to stop by Ritzville. I found this motel and thought that it was quite convenient because there was a food store across the street. Right when i came in the office, i was immediately greeted by the friendly manager. The room was clean, the TV worked beautifully, and the towels...

I go to Ritzville Wa and stay for a quick hunting trip several miles north. It's a long to take my travel trailer so I look for a convenient and reasonable place to stay. I found the Colwell very comfortable and quiet. We had a double room for a very reasonable price. I will be going back to the area...

My tours take me through Ritzville every four or six years. My last three visits have included stays at the Colwell Inn. It is neither new, flashy, nor ritzy but it is spacious and clean. If you have an RJ 45 connector on your computer, you may find the wired internet more convenient depending upon how far your room is...

Like Jake's, we stay here each time in the area; however, this time was most unpleasant and therefore disappointing. We got little sleep due to the pillows and mattress; it was and is fairly clean. They are good with the very nice towels, coffee, which we do not drink, and other amenities. It is a quiet inn so that is...

I was heading to Spokane , I drove 5 hours from Kelowna. When it got dark the only place I could find was this place. The service and the room quality was surprisingly decent for a place practically in the middle of nowhere. overall I had a nice stay.
