Don't get me wrong, the place could be nice but I expected better from a premium Best Western. Checked in and two lights did not work. They got a bulb for the one without a bulb but couldn't find an extension cord for the other which would have also allowed the clock to be plugged in. The carpet was ripped... More

This motel was very nice. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was unbelievable. They prepare omelettes and scrambled eggs to your specifications. The motel is just across the street from the Snake River. Although it was raining when we were there, we were able to walk over and snap a few pictures. Parking at the motel was a little... More

This is a very nice motel right across the street from the Snake River and a nice walking path. The staff was very nice, the room was good sized and comfortable, and the breakfast was good. They actually have a cook so you can get your eggs any way you like! We were pleasantly surprised and will certainly stay here... More

the building is 'dated' but very well maintained. I come often and if I am in the area I will make a special effort to stay here . Perfect trip time from our area to Yellowstone Park. Having a water feature as unique as you do also adds to the attraction.

We really appreciate your loyalty to our hotel. We also love our waterfall out front and even larger waterfall across the street. Being just a stones throw from Yellowstone is nice also. We hope to see you again soon! More

This was a nice place to stay, some rooms recently updated, others are slowly getting there. The parking lot is VERY small however, so don't take your big truck in there! Breakfast was a delight and the ladies were great. It was nice to be right across from the river. I'd stay there again.

Arrival was easy and quick. Employees were friendly and very helpful. I had a problem with the electronic key, but the employee quickly walked with me back to the room to ensure it's success. It was a long walk and was threatening rain. Gotta say something about the view. Being a stones throw from the river and it's falls helps... More

We sure enjoyed our stay at the Driftwood Inn in Idaho Falls. It is a fantastic location right across the street from the riverwalk, which we love to walk along. The breakfast is excellent, tasty, a good assortment, and well attended. The staff were helpful, pleasant, and courteous. Our room was delightful. Hope to return many times.

Great Stay at Best Western Plus Driftwood Inn. - The Driftwood Inn is located just a few steps across the road from the Idaho Falls Greenbelt Trail. The road is one lane each way, low speed. Mostly pedestrians. Traffic definately not a problem. - Entire facility is kept very clean. Exterior grounds were very well kept, with lots of plants... More

This was a really nice place. Across the street from the Falls, nice walking path and park. An omelet bar and fresh banana bread! Seriously. Oh yes, the beds and pillows were great. Nice and quiet. Some rooms have balconies , some single story.
