We traveled to Hagerman, ID for a Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering. Lodging in Hagerman is limited so we opted to try to find accommodations in Buhl. We were pleasantly suprised to find the Oregon Trail Motel. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, microwave, fridge and nicely furnished. A continental breakfast was included in the really reasonable rate and... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of our getaway to the hot springs in Hagerman. What we found was a great little place with kind folks. The room was very clean and well appointed. The shower was hot and wonderful, a 7' person would easily fit under the shower head. The beds were fresh and very comfortable. We... More

We picked this motel from Trip Advisor as we needed a place to stay on our way east on I84. It's rather off the beaten path these days, but it was a real find and well worth the detour! The rooms were clean and well provided with the amenities one expects in a motel. The wi-fi connection was exceptionally fast... More

Over the past 6 years we have stayed at the Oregon Trail numerous times. Pristine linens. No smarmy smells from cover up cleaning products. Great value for the money. Rick serves top of the line coffee every morning along with local bakery items and local dairy products. We enjoy our time at the Oregon Trail. I did read a review... More

If MacDonald's charges 5 cents for a Big Mac Meal, i'll give it a good, solid 4. If it charges $12 for the same meal, I'll give it a 1. Price Matters! This is very true with the Oregon Trail Motel on the east side of Buhl, along Hwy 30. With tax (and an AARP discount), the room came to... More

Circle your wagons at the Oregon Trail motel because it's a safe and pretty good deal. I have stayed there twice now for a work related overnighter and it is clean, renovated, and pleasant. Yes, if you're looking for a four-star hotel, that's not it, but for a small town you can't go wrong.

This is a nice road style motel that has upscale beds and linens. We had a really good night's sleep and appreciated the small continental breakfast in the morning at the office with local dairy fresh cream, butter, baked goods & jam. A nice touch. We found this to be a good value for the money and a nice diversion... More

Excellent two-night stopover, to explore the Hagerman Valley and Twin Falls areas. Owner/manager very welcoming and accommodating on the phone when I had to alter reservations, and in person when I arrived. Very clean, large room. Beautiful linens, bathroom clean, and all needed amenities. Ice is available by asking at the front desk. Price is terrific. Would definitely stay here... More

This is great place to stay or I would not come back again. The rooms are very clean and well kept. It is locally owned and not a chain. They have a simple breakfast every morning and conversation. They are biker friendly. Rates are very reasonable. The owner's are great

A clean room, but the first motel I have ever stayed at in over 50 years of traveling that didn't have an ice machine. After a long day at the wheel, a relaxing drink is always in order, but to my incredulity this motel has no ice machine on the premises! Very inconsiderate to the traveler as an ice machine... More
