We didn't realize that the Ellensburg Washington area would be jam-packed for the high school and college graduations. We didn't make reservations ahead. We ended up traveling 25 miles west to Cle Elum, and got the last room available at the Chalet. The room was very clean and tidy. Mike was very accommodating, We were frustrated and tired from traveling...

If you're ever in town and you need a place to stay this is it. Clean, affordable and in a perfect location. The owner Mike is one of those nicest guys you'll ever meet. The next time I'm in the area I will definitely be staying here again.

Thank God for Mike and his Motel! I stay here with my girlfriend from time to time because we are planning to move into the area. The rooms here are very clean and comfortable! The wi-fi internet worked well and Mike made sure that we had everything we needed. There is TV with cable and the beds are very comfortable....

Thank you Michael for securing us a reservation for August when the entire city is booked! We do so love our Cle Elum visits during the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour (to raise funds for Mary Bridge Children's Hospital). We look forward to a good night's sleep after our ride from Snoqualmie.

This was my 5th stay at the Chalet Motel. I was pleased to see that Mike upgraded his beds...the new beds are so comfortable! My room was clean, simple, comfortable and reasonably priced (exactly what you'd expect from a motel). Mike (owner) always makes me feel welcome and we usually talk business and politics for a little while before I...

I was very thankful to get a room as Snoqualmie Pass closed. The room was clean, I felt very safe, parking was right out front of my room, and the hotel manager was a true gentleman. I was very grateful for a comfortable room. My prayers were answered ~ Paulette

Absolutely the best beds ever. The room is always clean and ready. Customer service is awesome. I came here the first time last May ( excellent then too) and a year later we visit from Alaska again and the owner remembers us. That is customer service. Will always come back. What makes this place special is the owner. Michael is...

Place was very clean, quiet, friendly and very reasonable. The best nights sleep I have had in a hotel ever.

I found this motel late on Monday night after I ran into a massive snowstorm on Snoqualmie Pass that had traffic backed up for hours and left me exhausted. Mike is a very friendly guy and was able to get me a very comfortable room at an affordable rate. My short stay at the Chalet helped me get refreshed for...
