My wife and I are staying at the Traditional Inn in Quincy, supposedly the closest hotel to the Gorge. A couple of catches, they only take reservations for three nights, you have to pay ahead of time and you have to check in before Saturday's show starts for $105 a night. Totally worth it for us though!
Well its really a case of to each there own. Traditional Inn is the closest to the gorge, however the rooms are small and smelly the service is bad and the rates are too high. I am all about the moses lake shilo inn. last time i stayed at the motel 6 is moses lake and that was a disaster.
