I've stayed at this hotel for the past 6 years for Braun Brothers Reunion. I choose this hotel each time I'm in Challis beause I have been very satisfied with my stays there. I would give this hotel the highest of recommendations for the Challis area.

We stayed at the Challis Northgate Motel for a week in early Aug 2014. It's clearly the best place in town to stay. Deidra and her staff were very warm and friendly. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. We were very happy to see a microwave and refrigerator. We will not hesitate to stay again - in fact,... More

Beds were very comfortable, manager was very helpful, room was quiet and was available when we needed it. If you are driving north, it is worth the extra few blocks. Good to have fresh coffee ready in the morning.

Traveling from Glacier National Park to Salt Lake City, we stopped overnight in Challis. We did not expect to find much in the way of lodging in a rather remote region of Idaho, but the Northgate was a very pleasant surprise. It is much larger that I expected, with many rooms on 3 floors. The owners of the motel were... More

Having been here in the past, noticed a very pleasant difference this time. The manager was awesome, attentive and made us feel at home. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Hotel smelled great, which was lacking with the previous manager. Where ever this manager came from, she is a keeper. Will stay here again!

This is an older motel but the rooms were extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable pillow top beds! Deidra went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Whatever we needed she was right there to meet the need.

I stayed here a night on business. Decent room, clean, fridge, ESPN, etc. staff was helpful and nice. Old school key that you leave in a basket on counter upon checkout. No breakfast, and they said coffee in the morning, but I couldn't find it. I'd stay here again.
