Booked a room with two queen bed for a family of five , when we checked in they said they gave it away. We booked two days in advance by phone. We took a single queen room that's all they had and offered us a inflatable bed for the kids we said fine . The person who set the bed... More

We chose to stay here because of the good reviews here on TripAdvisor, and we were very happy we did. We were exploring the area of the Oregon Trail and this made an excellent stop over spot. The room was very large, very clean, and had everything that we needed nicely arranged. We especially liked the clean white bedding and... More

Boy, am I glad I did!!! Fantastic conversation with the owner and his adorable Bulldog...immaculately clean and wonderfully updated room...more immenities than I would... More

Rick, the owner, is very accommodating. HE FOLLOWS THE TWO RULLES OF BUSINESS. 1/ Be easy to do business with. 2/ give them a reason to come back for more. Rick does this in spades! The rooms are clean and cozy. It appears the whole place has been updated. I would stay here again and again as I pass thru... More

A comfortable, affordable and very friendly motel in a nice small town. We have stayed several times while visiting family and coming back to the Oregon Trail is like coming home. We enjoy the comfortable rooms and the friendly staff. The rooms have all the amenities one would need plus internet access and Rick and his staff make every effort... More

I was in Buhl for less than a day but this was a comfortable and clean place to stay. Price was fair and a big plus is for me to feel safe since I was traveling alone. We had other family staying there too. My aunt and uncle were in the older part that may not have been as updated... More

This is a rare find for a "mom n pop" motel. Clean, friendly, reasonable price, nice breakfast bar. It's like saying with a good friend. The owner, Rick McClain, is a real "trip"....in the best way !!! Fun to be around. Rooms are spotless with fridge, microwave and wifi. You won't regret staying here.

We loved our stay here! The managment was very experienced. He has managed hotels all over the world. Also his dog is super adorable. He had several different kinds of bread for breakfast from a local bakery, and fancy tea. The rooms were cute, quiet, and comfortable.

What a great motel! All the amenities of a chain motel at a fraction of the cost. Room is updated, clean and very comfortable. Rick is a great host/owner. Within walking distance of downtown Buhl and lots of good eating places. You are able to drive up and park right in front of your room so unpacking and repacking is... More
