We have family in the area so we have stayed at the Best Western, Omak Inn, the 12 Tribes Casino and the Quality Inn (formally Okanogan Inn or "Cedars"). The last one, in Okanogan, I would never, ever recommend.
If you have a pet with you, the options are the Best Western and Omak Inn. If we go again, I would stay at the Omak Inn. It's much cheaper and just as nice. It's slightly more dated, but it's a better value with great staff and clean, comfortable rooms. If you don't have a pet and want really nice rooms, the 12 Tribes Casino is the way to go. We loved that place.
We did not have our dog with us this time, so we had a regular room at the Best Western. The biggest complaint was the set-up of the room. The bathroom sinks are basically in the bedroom so it's impossible for one person to sleep or get rest while another person get's ready or makes coffee, etc. And unfortunately we had a room (413) right off the elevator so we could hear people coming and going.
The other thing that I personally did not care for, was that they did not have little bottles of shampoo in the room, but had a dispenser in the shower. Anyone could access the openings for this, so to me it's like getting used butter at a restaurant. They did have a sign that you could request individual bottles at the front desk, but by the time I realized the situation, I was ready to shower and get going. It was fine, but not ideal.
The hot breakfast was okay. The first day there was not enough batter for waffles and the second day it was a bit runny, but okay. They did offer eggs & hash browns which was nice. The size of the breakfast area was great so there was no concern in finding space or food.
The staff was really friendly, but almost too much as they would have conversations with other guests while two other parties waited patiently and after driving for 5 hours to get there, I didn't have a lot of patience with me at that point.
Like I said, the hotel was adequate. I feel it was a bit pricey for the size. But it was clean and comfortable, with newish furniture, etc. less
