The hotel is really nothing special. A bit run down, the rooms are small, the tv is small. That being said, the price is low and affordable for a night stay if you don't plan on spending much time there. It is in a great location right off the freeway.

This hotel is located a couple of miles out of town in a group of services just off the interstate, near a small casino. It was a convenient overnight stop. Check in was a breeze & the staff friendly & very helpful. Our room (a king one) was very clean (smelled freshly serviced), had a very large bed, cable TV,...

We stayed in Ellensburg on our way to the Seattle area as it is less expensive. The town itself has a lot going for it. The Econo Lodge is a few miles from the downtown area, but is easy to get to from I-90. We had a a lakeside room, which was quieter, but appeared as most guests stayed on...

The staff is wonderful, it is very clean. Has laundry facilities, an ice machine that actually works. Around the back there is a nice lake. I highly recommend this hidden gem. Even had a microwave and refrigerator.

Only staying the night on our way to Seattle. Had a lake view room, better than looking out at the freeway and quieter too. The desk gave us a great place to go and eat in downtown. Though it was only one night it was an enjoyable stay

Extremely basic hotel bordering on lower end of scale. Upon check-in, the desk agent was not overly friendly, but not curt either. He didn't make eye contact, but was efficient in doing his job. My wife said he was just shy. The rooms are very dated and although clean, the overall feeling left me wondering just how clean it really...

The staff at this motel was friendly and helpful. The room tho not fancy was at a fair price and had all the things you want in an overnight stay, clean room and bed, tv, hot shower etc. Had Waffles and hot coffee in the lobby for breakfast, enjoyed my stay there.

Reviewed 2 July 2016

Check in was pleasant. Location is a bit removed from the campus motel row. There is a small lake behind the motel and the room was pleasantly quiet. Don't look for the extras here. Only one pillow per person and one blanket under the comforter. The breakfast was the usual basics and it included waffles. The price was right on.

Thank you for your review, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Our hotel is slightly further away from the rest of the hotels in Ellensburg and many people see this as a positive. It is typically quieter and less crowded here. We hope to see you next time you're in town!

Room was clean, on the second floor. Signage is poor, no sign on the building itself, just one out by the road. There's a Subway and a truck stop in walking distance if you're hungry. I ordered pizza from town. Has been renovated but rather poorly, no baseboards in the bathroom with gaps in the laminate.
