I travel for business quite a bit, and find that small towns usually have pretty basic lodging options. While doing business in Colfax, WA (pop. 2,000) I opted to stay at the BW Wheatland Inn, and was pleasantly surprised. This was my first time staying in the area, and at this hotel. The facility was clean and modern, with a warm décor. The staff was friendly, helpful, and kind. They had the pool and hot tub open, as well as their fitness room. Breakfast was brownbag to-go due to COVID. They gave me a form to fill out the night before, and got a generous breakfast burrito, a muffin, mandarin oranges, orange juice, coffee, and a breakfast bar all ready for me in the morning.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a very nice granite countertop, and the shower was robust. The décor was warm and pleasant, and a comfortable desk/workspace. But the coup de taut for me was... the Internet! I have stayed at Hilton and Marriott hotels in large metropolitan areas with absolutely horrid internet. One place offered upgrade speeds for $7/night to get 5MB. What an upgrade :∙| I measured 100Mb downloads here at BW Wheatland Inn, which made my work time in my room very pleasant and productive.
I will always stay here when traveling through the Colfax/Pullman/Moscow area. The Best Western Wheatland Inn hit all of my checkboxes that I look for, and look forward to my next trip through town. less
