5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

While I have stayed at several of the hotels along the riverfront, this location is becoming a favorite because of it's location, but also with how comfortable I feel here. Very good breakfast, clean rooms and friendly staff will keep me coming back in-spite of the challenging parking lot for the main building.

My husband, daughter,her service dog and I were given one of the rooms overlooking the river, for the same price as a regular double room. I think it was because of the dog. We had a balcony were we could watch the people taking walks along the falls across the street. The room included a kitchen, which we didn't use.... More

Best Western Driftwood in Idaho Falls is on a quiet river-side (Snake River) side street. My room was on the small-ish side (fine solo or for two people who like each other a lot) but very comfortably furnished. Bed good. I also much like their table and bedside lamps with built-in outlets for electronic appliances. Very good breakfast service, including... More

Loved the view of the falls. The omelets at breakfast were wonderful for the children. The room we stayed in was quiet considering it was next to the road and the falls. Very friendly people worked here.

We have used this hotel several times as a halfway stop on our trips. Not the most modern of hotels, it is comfortably furnished and with breakfast included is good value for money. Just a walk across the street to the park on the banks of the Snake River, it well situated for nearby restaurants and the old town. The... More

The hotel is across from the "Falls" reclamation water project. Our room was a King Suite and it was very nicely appointed. We had 2 bedrooms a king and a queen bed that were very comfortable. A full kitchen even with plates and cups etc, an oven, microwave and a regular size fridge. The main room had a fire place... More

Best Western Driftwood is ideally located across the street from the falls. Very friendly staff, rooms updated and beds are comfortable. The omlette chef in the morning knows how to make a great omlette!

We were delighted to find this hotel, right across from the falls in Idaho Falls, with a beautiful walking trail. There was not a lot of street traffic so the hotel location was very quiet. We were upgraded to a suite, which was a huge room overlooking the river. We'd been traveling for several months, always needing to stay at... More

I am currently working on my computer, situated by the open balcony doorway of my nicely-appointed room overlooking the Snake River, which hums as it flows over the dam. I originally was in an interior room--very nice and updated and clean and good for sleeping, but as I had to work in my room, I asked the day manager if... More
