This hotel is clean and comfortable. It has all the simple amenities found in most hotel rooms. There is no gym or pool but the people are nice and the breakfast is hearty! There is a microwave and fridge so you can keep yourself stocked.

We spent several days here over the 2015 Mother's Day Weekend, on business and pleasure. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the room very clean, the bathroom esp. nice, and the location was pleasant as well. Breakfast had decent options for a small motel.

Computer check in was a little slow when four of us arrived at one time. Large rooms were very clean and had a fresh scent. Very modern including outlets for charging phone, etc. Full hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. Located near the Clearwater River.

My daughter was driving back from Missoula over highway 12 by herself and needed a place to stay since she was getting too tired to continue driving safely. The husband and wife team that owns this motel took great care of her and made sure she had everything she needed and that she felt safe. Unfortunately she had to leave... More

Although the outside looks rather tired, the inside of the room was fresh, clean, and inviting. Check-in was hassle-free by a very friendly lady. The next morning when we went to breakfast, we were helped by another friendly lady.

We stayed here, four of us, after driving down from Lolo pass on highway 12. It was nice to have two large rooms with a refrigerator. The king beds were comfortable. They had a respectable breakfast with biscuits, gravy, eggs, sausage, waffle maker, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea & hot chocolate. The hosts were friendly and helpful.
