A lovely couple runs the Bennett Bay Inn. To stay in Coeur d'alene for this price and have a hot tub in the room, perfect. The room worked for us and had us chatting all night long. The rooms could use an update, but I don't mind. Beautiful sunsets overlooking the lake. A short drive to downtown and all of... More

Stay clear of the Jungle Room unless you hanker for a lousy uncomfortable bed, black satin sheets, dubious hot tub and what looks like unpatched bullet holes beside the door entry. Only saving grace was the beautiful view outside!

The outdoor area very well kept with a fountain and fire pit. There was a jacuzzi in the room. Excellent, I would recommend this paradise by the lake to everyone. The staff were... More

We didn't actually stay at this Inn, but we did stop by while riding bikes up the long hill by this inn. We asked for some water and he, very graciously, brought out two large cups of water for us. We chatted for a bit and it seems this place would be a fun place to stay on our next... More

Staff has poor customer service not professional at all. Very old needs to be fixed up. I have seen old hotels in way better shape. The only thing this inn has going for it is its view on the lake. For decoration they have stickers on their doors. Bathroom needs to be up on the standards. It's just white trash.... More

New owners. I thought that meant good things, but nope. We were a late check in. They gladly gave us a room, and took our money, but they gave us a DIRTY room and when we rang the bell again and again, they did not answer, so there I was. Stuck in a dirty nasty room with my 16 year... More

We were on our way back from Minnesota to Washington and decided after a long night to stop in CDA. We have a 3 yo and wanted a place with a pool (we were too tired to go to the lake). All of the motels with pools in our price range on appleway were booked. I looked on trip advisor... More

Rustic and a gorgeous view. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The mattresses are firm. The owners are very friendly and helpful. You can't beat the views here and they have several ways that you can enjoy the view. There is an outdoor pool with seating. A garden with a fountain and table and chairs. They also sell soda's, beer... More

We saw the reviews of area hotels for Coeur d' Alene ID on TripAdvisor while heading east from Moses Lake WA. Ironically everyone was giving bad ratings to the major chains, then I saw decent reviews of the Bennett Bay Inn. Since we were really looking for something on the lake we made reservations to arrive at 3:00 p.m. We... More

Our stay was absolutely amazing! I came up with some friends for my bachelorette party and was truly charmed by the character,exceptional service and beautiful setting. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Plus, they have a really cool fire pit!
