They always please. Nicest people, clean comfortable rooms and the location is beautiful. The Snake River right across the street is a wonderful walk - geese, falls, it is just beautiful. And there is plenty of great dining nearby.

We stayed here for two nights. Newly refurbished, the hotel is modern with that old timey feel. Breakfast was typical Best Western fare but with omelets made to order and homemade banana bread. It was wonderful. It's in the heart of Idaho Falls and our room had a gorgeous view of the LDS Temple. At night it just glowed.

We are on a cross-country trip and occasionally stop a couple days in one location. We enjoyed this location so much we did just that. The property is very well maintained, modern, and the staff are great. The complimentary breakfast included freshly prepared omelets and eggs-to-order. We had a nice King room with a balcony overlooking the river. We wish... More

This hotel is in a great location by lots of restaurants. Also, the hotel is right by the greenbelt with views of the Snake River. Room was clean and the continental breakfast was good. There was a omelet bar for those that wanted a fresh omelet. My only complaint was that breakfast ended at 9:00, would have preferred to sleep... More

For a best western it was disappointing somwhat. room was ok, people were very pleasant. But bathroom below standard, bathmat was very grungy, toilet seat was loose and bathroom quite small. Limited number of pillows, bed kinda too firm. Would rather have had a king bed than a queen, there was lots of room for a king there. And room... More

We stayed one night and although the hotel is old, it is very clean. Our room had everything you would need for "housekeeping", fridge, microwave, range top, sink, etc, as well as a table with 2 chairs. It is right across from the falls and a nice area to take a walk. Staff were very friendly and gave good recommendations... More

Great location and view of the river falls and scenic area. Nice walk way for a river walk next to the hotel. Great breakfast presentation with eggs cooked to order. Rooms could use a little updating but were clean and comfortable. Good value for the price.

Loved the location. river walk and view of Snake River great. We only stayed one night; we were on our way to Calgary, Canada to join a tour of the Canadian Rockies. We'd made no plans where we would stop on our way. We figured it was time to stop when we reached Idaho Falls. We were pleasantly surprised by... More

Stayed here on our way to Montana. Very nice hotel, the falls are across the street and are lovely. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and quiet. Will definitely stay here again on our way back if we come back this way.
