Inn at Goose Creek
Travel Blogs from Ellensburg
... it's nearly fall and most of the colorful things have passed on. We hiked for about an hour and a half. The trails are unique in that at every junction, there's a Satellite Photo of where the point is, apparently taken from a paid version of Google Earth. It's still possible to get lost, but one would have to give it a real go to do it. I'm guessing that so many folks called ...
... Access. Here at Seaquest the phone is basically nil and text is a bit spotty, but, there's lots of green stuff to see. ;o)
I'll prepare the photos and have them ready when all is well comunication-wise.
As you can see, we did make it off of the mountain and are now in Yakima at Sportsman State Park, only a few miles from downtown. It's a real gem of a place with lots to see and many trails. You will find out about in the next edition.
... for this kind of work. Took me all day, and there were a few minor setbacks, but like everything in life, if you stick with it, eventually you can conquer it.
This part of the travel, until the 9th you can skip over since we're not on our trip yet.
... a major maintenance with new brakes and rotors, new induction system, filters, you name it - $1900. Ouch. But we'll probably put 10-12,000 miles on this sucker and better to have it in top working condition that conk out in Bumstinking, Tennessee. Anyway, it looks like we're going to leave earlier than ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Goose Creek Ellensburg
My stay at The Inn at Goose Creek was absolutely wonderful. The staff was so personable and very helpful. The atmosphere was so relaxing. The place was full but you would have never known it. We never heard anyone elses noise while in our room. It was amazing. The rooms were all different. They all had a different theme. We stayed in the English Ivy room and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope to go back again someday.
My two daughters and I go on a retreat every July, and chose the Inn at Goose Creek in Ellensburg, Wa for our stay this year.
How often will I be able to write a review for a hotel and feel it a necessity to do so? THIS is the time. I have stayed all over the world, met characters, been pampered, and in general found very little negative to say about many, but The Inn at Goose Creek is like staying in my own home, only daily maid service. Only scheduled to stay a few nights on business, I inquired as to stay longerbecause we were enjoying our time so much, but the Inn was already booked following our stay.
A Real Treat-Totally Unexpected
Looking at the building itself, or even standing on their porch, you wouldn't expect the delightful eye candy you receive upon entering the Inn at Goose Creek. These folks went all out to make our stay comfortable & uniquely enchanting. The rooms were decorated w/so much detail & care - for fun & enjoyment. Every room is a different theme. Lovely - charming - amusing - enchanting. The included breakfast goes far beyond what others offer too. Delicious! Wide array of fresh foods to choose from. We'll go out of our way to make sure we stay there again.
My company has held our conference in Ellensburg for 29 years now, and I have been a part of it for 5. The Inn at Goose Creek is where we ALWAYS place our staff and our VIP presenters. In fact, they request it!
I always stay in the Christmas Room, which helps put me in the mood for the holidays, as well as help me think of cool winter during the summer heat (but with each room having climate control, that helps too!). There is even a control that pumps holiday music into your room via a speaker! Now that's taking it to the next level.
Gary is a great manager/owner! He is funny and always has a small on his face! Get to know him; you'll be glad you did.
If you just need to pull off the highway and get a night's sleep I guess this place would be ok. However, we checked in for a weekend of shopping and fun in Ellensburg and were apppalled. The rooms are relentlessly decorated with WAY too many stuffed animals and pillows, and even tho you're in a beautiful part of the country, all you can see out of the windows is freeway, parking lot, and gas stations. The manager was quite harsh and protective of her territory, the place was packed to the gills with bad art, and the roar of the freeway was ceaseless. Find somewhere in town or in the woods if you can.
Best Place in Ellensburg to stay!
We are former Ellensburg residents and CWU Alumni, and very familiar with the area. This is the best accommodation in Ellensburg! The rooms are very large (bigger than any normal hotel room - more like a suite) and private - each room with its own very large bathroom (not what you expect for a B&B). Perfect for business or pleasure, including your breakfast in the morning. Coffee in the room, a large tub (with water jets) & shower. Lobby is a very large common area for you and your guests, like your living room at home. Plenty of movies, books and games for when you are not enjoying Ellensburg. Wireless Internet is included and available throughout the property. Gary and Ylwa are wonderful hosts.
I've stayed here twice. What a treat!!!! Every room does have it's own theme. I've stayed in the Christmas room and the sports room. This is like staying in a luxury B&B. You don't feel like you are in a "hotel" at all, but a beautiful home. The proprieters are friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was included, and much nicer than many "continental breakfasts" you would get at a chain hotel. Not only are the rooms decorated beautifully, but the common areas are full of interesting and beautiful objects. What a great value! Don't miss this if you have a chance to stay here.
