We were looking for a cheap hotel to stay for one night after getting into town late. From the outside, the hotel looks like it hasn't been renovated in more than 10 years; it takes the form of most other cheap motels, with front doors opening to the outside. The interior of the rooms is spartan and retro, looking like... More

We were looking for basically a bed and a shower for a quick overnight stay on our way to Seattle. I didn't have high expectations given the price I paid. The room was modern and "updated" but the sheets were stained and the shower was fairly dirty. You hear people going up and down the metal stairs until late at... More

We stayed here in part because it was the only vacancy. Check in was so slow, with a line and no automation. 2 of the 4 of us tripped on the way up the unsafe metal stairs. Barren room that on the surface looks okay, but then you see just how cheap the fixtures are. Laminate floor was awful. Seems... More

My daughter and I stayed here during our colleges tour in Washington. I was a bit apprehensive when I booked the place, but the moment we walked into the lobby something felt different. Looks like they had recently completed remodeling the place and everything looked and smelled new! Front desk was nice and even gave us flooring options! Interior of... More

My mother and I were stuck in a snowstorm and ended up driving for 12 hours straight and decided to stop in Ellensburg to rest. The room we checked into was modern and very cheap. The floors were laminate wood and were cleaned with a substance that left it sticky. With each step, the floor clung to our shoes and... More

I a,ways try to leave reviews based on what a hotel is trying to do. Motel 6s everywhere look to provide clean, basic accommodations. Outta the park here. Nice and clean. Central located in Ellensberg, and great price. No frills for sure, but you don't go to Motel 6 for luxury.

This place has been recently remodeled, and at first glance, doesn't look too bad. The remodel was obviously rushed and poorly done but, I could overlook a bad paint job and some cove molding falling off in places. However, there’s no excuse for the dust bunnies piled up on the floor, the old bar of soap smashed into the shower... More

The rooms here are quite modern, like they've been recently updated. The beds were comfortable too. It's unfortunate that we only spent a few hours in our room as we got in really late and had to leave really early. The hospitality was great as well. They let us check in early and gave us directions to where we were... More

I rented 10 rooms for me, high school choir students, chaperones and bus driver. First, all the rooms are horribly decorated in orange and yellow paint. One room had dirty dishes in the sink. Another room had a random knife in the sink. My room had blood stains on the bedspread, and my floor was sticky everywhere. All rooms had... More

Walls are paper thin and it sounds like a herd of elephants are running around upstairs. I discovered we only have 1 wash cloth for my husband and I to share and no shampoo (thankfully I packed some). The laminate floors are interesting however we don't even have an interior rug. I also wasn't amused with finding a spider in... More
