Hotel Overview

Centrally located in Washington State, the SureStay Hotel by Best Western Ellensburg not only offers small town charm, but a welcome respite to today’s business and leisure traveler. Located less than two hours from Seattle on the I-90 corridor, guests here are afforded an easy commute to several cities including Leavenworth (a beautiful Bavarian village style town), Moses Lake (a great place to play in the sand dunes), Wenatchee (home of the Washington Apple and Cherry), and Yakima (a great area for wine vineyards). As part of the SureStay Hotel by Best Western Ellensburg family, we pride ourselves on offering our guests the value and service they expect from our brand’s hotels. In addition, guests here can relax knowing they are not strangers but family.

Spring is a great time of year in the Pacific Northwest! There are great hiking and horseback hiding opportunities to take advantage of as parks reopen after the winter. Central Washington University hosts the Washington State High School Solo & Ensemble competition in April and Concerts begin anew in May at The Gorge Amphitheatre! We are also located just a 1 hour and 13-minute drive from Leavenworth, WA, a scenic Bavarian village in the heart of Washington State!

*New and Exciting* We are happy to announce that we have 12 brand new Tesla Supercharger stations coming on line in April!

We look forward to being a part of your central Washington experience!
