We picked this hotel because we needed place to stay the night before our plane left. We had never been here before and didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised when we drove into the hotel to see it looked like a well preserved California Motor court from the 60s. Grounds were beautiful and the staff were very... More

An older facility with a beautiful location. Breakfast was typical but with custom made omelet and the usual other foods. HOWEVER the room was small. You had to stand to the side to close the bathroom door. No bathroom vent, a small window opens to a bush in the back with a foul smell coming from back of the motel.... More

The hotel looks like recently renovated. The room was nice size and has nice decor. The staff were pleasant and caring. They accommodated my special requests. The internet was very fast. The location is wonderful, right in front of Snake River and the Idaho Falls. There is nice trail along the falls which is quite wide. Definitely I would like... More

Great stay at Best Western and the free upgrade to a unit with a Spa was great. Bernadette was at check in on arrival and so pleasant and helpful. The location across from the Idaho falls was great we were able to just walk across the road and follow the falls down the street, Our room on the second floor... More

We stayed here in July 2015, on a bike trip. This Motel is right on the river, and located around some great food options. It is very clean and quiet, the staff are very professional and the rooms are very good. Breakfast was great, but mostly we enjoyed the quiet area we were in. Dont hesitate to stay here it... More

Location was great at Snake River Falls. Older motel but exceptionally well kept with outstanding service. Staff was great, housekeeping exceptional, and breakfast was one of the best we could have, especially the personalized omlet bar.

This place is great - you can tell it's older as it's small and the parking is tight but very beautifully redone. The location on the river near downtown and across from the walking trail on the river is fantastic. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Pros - the location is amazing, right on the Snake river. We got the 3 queens rooms and it was very large with a full kitchen and linen closet. Perfect for an extended stay with several people. Cons - The property feels like it is in the middle of a remodel. The bathroom was very modern and the kitchen was... More

1. Right across the street from the falls. 2. Beautiful and very spacious park across from hotel. 3. Front desk staff absolutely wonderful, helpful, and accommodating. HOWEVER: 1. No liners in trash cans. I can only imagine what gunk the previous guests could have left in there for us… 2. After housekeeping cleaned the room, and we returned to it,... More
