This place is right on the main drag going into Idaho Falls. This is a very large motel complex with many complexes (there's apparently a pool, but didn't visit it). Everything inside is a bit dated and could use a paint job, but it will do the trick for a night. As most people have commented it's no doubt a... More

Stopped by for the night while driving through Idaho. VERY pleasantly surprised. Quality was what you would expect at one of the better chains -- spacious, comfortable, clean, adequate breakfast in a dedicated room -- but at privately-owned prices. Right off the highway as you come into town from the west, but the room we had was nice and quiet.... More

Stayed here for one night after flying into Idaho Falls. The price was right for a queen room ($55) and it was pretty clean. We got a room upstairs behind the office. Breakfast was included but it was nothing spectacular though it had some variety. Our biggest issue was the noise that carried from the room behind ours - it's... More

We stayed here on the way home from Yellowstone. We weren't planning on stopping in Idaho Falls but got stopped by a fierce home. We needed a place to stay and found Motel West. Clerk was very nice and helpful. We needed two rooms as we were traveling with friends. She suggested their family room which was two rooms with... More

My husband and I got to the motel late. We were given a room on the upstairs back side of the office. It was a large room with just one bed. It seemed very clean. The only thing that did not look good was the recliner, which had a stain on it and kind of turned us off. It is... More

Making my way across the country and stopped in Idaho Falls. From reviews here on TripAdvisor, I decided to stay here. EXCELLENT choice. Clean, comfortable rooms with everything you get at a much more expensive chain. My wifi was fine in the back building. Parking was easy with my trailer. Easy in and out for the highway.

For a lower cost Hotel this is a very nice place to stay. The staff is great, the rooms are dated but well kept, and everything advertised is actually true. I have to say that I was surprised at how well of a stay we had there. Don't expect a five star hotel and you will be quite happy. The... More

It is a good choice for the price. The look is old, but the room was clean. The other hotels we called were already no vacancy, this one was still vacancy. The breakfast is simple. The lady at the front desk is very nice and helpful !

We spent two nights here and were satisfied with the room, service, and breakfast. It is older with block walls, but very clean and well kept. Not a romantic scene, but a great value if traveling on a budget.

We were happy to find this independent motel on our drive through Idaho. Luckily we found them online and called early in the day to reserve our rooms; at this time of year, pickings for lodging are slim. They have the de rigueur continental breakfast, lots of easy parking, are centrally located, an indoor pool, and comfortable rooms. The only... More
