I am staying here with my boyfriend and we were sitting on our 3rd story balcony. He accidentally dropped my phone over the edge and onto the top of the entrance overhead. We went down and spoke with the front desk man named Zach. He not only helped us figure out how to get it back but also got a... More

The lobby is attractive but the overall look of the place is rundown and unkempt. If you can get past the looks of the outside, the rooms are fairly modern but our carpet was not vacuumed well. I wouldn't stop here again.

This was one of the worst stays we have ever had. The hotel is outdated, dirty and smelly. The room had dirty pet stained carpets, smelled like wet dog and the view was of the dumpster and parking lot and not of the advertised falls. Our room was never cleaned, even after multiple requests, and the breakfast....well what can I... More

We were excited to stay at this retro spot right on the falls, but it was filthy and so uncomfortable. They advertise free wifi, but it only sporadically worked in the lobby. I had to do some work from the lobby & I heard several other guests come down to say that their rooms had major issues. The young man... More

The hotel is in need of an update but it's priced accordingly because of it. The rooms were spacious and clean. The view of the falls is great for half the hotel. We were on the wrong half but still had a partial view of the falls. The room had a small fridge that actually worked which is rare. The... More

We were on the eighth floor with a look over the town. Good spot before driving to Yellowstone. Initially the front desk girl was not very friendly, but when we chose to stay, she turned more friendly. Beds were very comfortable. All the rooms have spacious balconies. Don't expect too much of the actual "falls". They are more like a... More

DO NOT STAY HERE It looks all nice in the picture online but it's actually a total dump. I only decided to stay here because it was cheap and had Internet, I got here NO INTERNET, and nobody told me at check in. Then they were rude to me when I wanted some sort of compensation for the inconvenience. I... More

This is unique building. We were on the 5th floor with a great view. The bathroom has older tile and the carpet has a stain, but the room is one of the most unusual I've stayed in. One of the elevators is waiting on parts. The fixtures all seem to work fine. I'll be staying here the next time I'm... More

This is an older hotel, but the location makes up for the 1950's bathroom tile. Don't miss the Japanese garden on the other side of the bridge. There are a lot of great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

Stayed here en route to Yellowstone on evening of July 17th. Was skeptical after reading some reviews, but glad I stayed. Best location in Idaho Falls -- right on the falls. The room (255) was updated and clean. Check in was quick and friendly, but I would suggest some sort of business casual attire at least. Breakfast was basically waffles... More
