Was very clean & well cared for. Staff was great & breakfast is the best. Only small complaint was Hot tub was only luke warm. We were pushing hard that day to make it to Nephews wedding. Was treated very well even though we were late spur of the moment guests.

Hotel was clean and grounds are well kept. Nice to walk along the river pathway. Although we didn't swim, the pool looked clean and people in it having fun. Plenty of parking. Nice to see dogs around as this location is pet-friendly. Staff very nice and accommodating. Close to I15 and easy to find.

for $169 per night, you would expect carpets to have been vacuumed. Carpet border on walls were separated & coming off. We slept in and when we left room at 11am we switched door sign around to be cleaned. Came back in evening, it wasn't cleaned. Your only paying the high price because there is the Snake River. Old place... More

The Best Western Driftwood is a gem of a hotel right on the eponymous Idaho Falls! From clean comfortable rooms, to friendly, helpful staff, to a delicious hot breakfast, you can not go wrong. If your business or leisure travel brings you to Idaho Falls, the Driftwood should be your choice!

Shower valve was evidently not pressure balanced, so the temperature swung from way-too-hot to way-too-cold every 15 or 20 seconds. Room was okay, but could have been cleaner. Breakfast was pretty good. Location across from the falls was very nice.

A few minor issues notwithstanding, this is a nice property, very nicely landscaped with a beautiful riverside park across the street. The Snake River and what appears to be a man made spillway parallels the street for several hundred yards with waterfalls all along the riverfront. There are uniquely designed benches strategically placed all along the river walk and numerous... More

A comfy clean room, good T.V. channels, and the walls are pretty well insulated, because I didn't hear the people on either side of me. Beautiful and clean outside pool and property. Good hot breakfast and nice staff. I would stay here again.

Enjoyed our stay beautifully landscaped hotel right on the river- especially fun for the kids on a hot summer day as this is one of the few hotels with an outdoor pool. Rooms are clean, updated standard looking franchise hotel rooms. Bathrooms are updated - probably could use some tlc on the drainage - sink took a long time to... More

Stayed at this motel two nights. Small but clean and updated room. Room on the dark side, could use more lighting. Very comfortable king size bed. Park your car in front of your room so no hallways to deal with. Friendly staff, very nice breakfast. They have fresh prepared eggs as you like them. Beautiful location across from the falls...

This is one of the oldest hotels, on the river in Idaho Falls. It has be completely, and beautifully, renovated. So enjoyed our stay: our room was attractive, comfortable, and spotless. The grounds were beautiful with flowers. View of the river was delightful. The coffee and milk were worth drinking, and the breakfast was worth eating. They even offered fresh... More
