The location of the motel across from the falls is terrific. The room was ok but needed updating. The king size bed was very comfortable. They only left us one soap per room so we had to share between the bath and sink. No tub mat. The staff was courteous but didn't ask us about our stay. I would have... More

It was an ok place but would not stay there again. The place is very dated and dark. It has the look of a motel more than a hotel. it was clean and the beds were comfortable but we prefer to stay in nicer places. The staff was friendly but we;ve had better in other places.

We won't be returning. 1) The housekeeping staff started loudly banging around their carts, tools and supplies when they came on shift very early in the morning (before most of the guests were up), 2 days in a row, right outside our 2 rooms. lt was NOT the early departing guests making this ruckus. 2) The walls were paper thin...

The Best Western Driftwood Inn in Idaho Falls is a GREAT place to stay. The rooms are very clean and well appointed and the bed is VERY comfortable. It offers a very nice place to stay with your pet. They are PET friendly and when visiting in Idaho Falls I would not consider staying any place else. There is a... More

Again the room was very clean, the staff is happy and eager to help and it is very comfortable and close to restaurants and right across the street for a walk along the river. Great work out area with pool and awesome breakfast options

This was real value for money. We had a beautiful big room overlooking the falls. The beds were very comfortable plus it was very quiet. We were very impressed with the breakfast - especially the made to order omelettes! The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Will definitely stay here again when passing through.

I really liked the shower stalls instead of the shower /tub arrangement. I know many travelers want to get up early and get on the road, but some likes to sleep in and eat later. Maybe increase the breakfast time to 10 a.m.

I've stayed here many times on business - always a great experience. The staff is friendly and helpful and the omelet bar for breakfast is great. The evening snack of soup and crackers in the lobby is always good and a nice touch. Parking can be a bit of a challenge when they are full.

We enjoyed hearing the falls, right across the street from our room. Everything was in good working order and very nice quality. We have driven through Idaho Falls many times, but this was the first time we'd stopped for the night. We would definitely stay again.

After 9 hours on the road..Our room had No Hot Water - Friday March 27th. We reported the problem and were told it would be fixed that evening and was not. No one was working on it when they told us someone was. They were still renting 7 other rooms knowing they had no hot water. Still on Saturday morning,... More
