Needed a room in Idaho Falls and found this place online. When we got here they matched our price since those rooms were closed. The hotel is also right across from the falls. The lobby was very welcoming, even had cookies out. The room was very large and open. The bathroom was a little dated and the tv needs to... More

The hotel was so quiet it was as though I were the only one there while that was not at all the case! The room was very large, clean and comfortable! At night the Veterans Memorial glows majestically on the Snake River along with the beautiful water falls the hotel overlooks!! It is centrally located and has a fabulous paved... More

The rooms are very large. A nice bright clean room. They all have a microwave and refridgerator. The free brealfest is not so great but everything else was above agerage. For the price I paid(about $60) I thought it was a great deal.

We had a great time staying at this hotel for our weekend getaway. We had a room facing the falls and it was so beautiful. It was also very convenient that we could just walk across the street and there were a few restaurants to choose from. It does have a lot of wear and tear on the outside but... More

The hotel has been in its basic structural form for 30+ years (round) and has been renovated so that the rooms are above average in finish and appointments, and yet, are reasonably priced. However, visiting in the winter requires being sure that the curtains are pulled to retain heat at night (the rooms are somewhat drafty, but heating is adequate).... More

My wife and I like to seek out historic or older hotels that have character rather than the cookie-cutter chains and this hotel is excellent.. roomy, comfortable, with great views from our 7th floor balcony, and very clean and updated.

We attended a fund-raising party at the hotel on New Year's Eve. The banquet room accommodations were terrific. The bar and bartenders were excellent, and the drinks were not overpriced. The food that was brought in was very good quality, and the dance floor was very nice. Many thanks to the hotel for such a delightful party that many, many... More

It was nice and clean large room. Great view of the falls just walked across the street to see them!! Continental breakfast was standard nothing special. They do have a restaurant so I ordered breakfast from there.

The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. What a great old hotel, it reminded me of the cylindrical Holiday Inn in West L. A. The facility is very well maintained, being an older hotel there could have been some "iffy" areas but there weren't. The rooms had vintage original hardware and similar touches throughout the rest of the building.... More
