Two major freeways, I–90 and I–82, pass through the cities of Ellensburg and Yakima where you'll find the highest concentration of lodgings. A few independent motels are available, but the majority are independently operated under familiar chain names.

are also available, particularly in the lower Yakima Valley, near the plethora of wineries in the area. It is always prudent to call ahead for reservations, but the busiest tourist times include the third week in April, for Spring Barrel Tasting, and from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
