A really great budget friendly motel. I booked this based on reviews on this site. Normally I would play it safe and stick to a known chain but this trip we got in late and away early so didn't care about all the amenities. That being said they did have a decent pool and continental breakfast. The front desk clerk... More

This is by no means a luxurious hotel. It's cheap and the price reflects. That being said, our beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the front desk was extremely welcoming. I must say, I had one of the most awesome hotel showers ever! Extra bonuses were a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker with all the fixings, and a... More

We stayed there from March 4-7 when our car broke down and we had to get repairs. The hotel (and tranny shop) was recommended by some ladies at the Stinker's across the street. Our nonsmoking room was quite quiet and very clean but big old TV. Coffee, decaf, tea, in room plus fridge and microwave. Great water pressure in shower,... More

We didn't need much, just a clean bed and shower. This gave us that. It is an older hotel, was larger than I expected. It has only the basics, but is in good repair and most important was clean. There was a pool and two pieces of exercise equipment. They offered "breakfast" in the morning, but it was only cold... More

Stayed overnight while in Idaho Falls. Can't beat the location. It was a small but quiet and clean room. Decent, average accommodations. Our baby has a hard time going to sleep when traveling and spends a significant amount of time screaming at bed time. This did not seem to bother any neighbors like it has in other hotels. The room... More

Not where I would go for vacation, but if you're looking for a place to stop, sleep, shower, eat light breakfast and hit the road again, this is a good value to do all the above. Convenient to the Interstate, the room was clean and quiet, the price was reasonable, the continental breakfast was sufficient. I would stay here again.

Started with asking the receptionist if they honored any discounts (i.e., AAA, military, senior citizen, etc.) and the curt answer was "no". When we walked into the room the first thing we noticed was the "cover up smell" within the room.. Not sure what they were using to try an make the room smell better but whatever they had used...

This property is not very fancy, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I arrived late and they were pleasant and welcoming! The breakfast consisted of two or three kinds of cold cereal and some fresh cinnamon rolls.

After escaping a terrible storm in Pocatello, with the city a foot underwater, my plans of camping went nowhere, and I ended up in Idaho Falls. Driving on Broadway,I found Motel West. The lady at the reception was extremly nice and helpful, the rooms clean and well stocked, TV, wi-fi, everything a traveler needs was there. For an extra 3... More
