Great non-chain motel-very clean and rooms are spacious. Friendly staff and good continental breakfast (even after the softball teams went through) Great prices! I called since on line showed only one night available of a 2 night stay, we booked the one night but they gave me a call when a cancellation came in and we able to give us... More

This modern hotel has very nice rooms and offers a very good (included) breakfast selection. The staff are friendly and helpful and the quality beds ensure a good night's sleep. The rooms are large with TV, fridge and microwave. I have been here quite a few times and it has never disappointed. Kamiah is in a beautiful part of Idaho... More

We stayed there a night when we couldn't load until next day. Big rig parking, pet friendly, hot breakfast and when I explained I had had surgery on my knee not so long ago they changed room from second to ground floor. Rooms were clean and beds soft. It was also quiet despite being on main drag.

Stayed overnight without reservation. Well maintained, clean room and friendly staff. Continental breakfast in morning was so so, but that's reflected in a reasonable room rate. Staff referred us to a local tavern that had good food and cold beer. Life is good!

When you enter Kamiah it says population 1106. Who would ever think they would have such a good hotel? Friendly, fast check-in, spacious, clean rooms, very nice free breakfast and free wifi. All at a great price. They even saved us $5 by asking if we were AARP members. This is the place to stay if you're anywhere near here.

Friendly and helpful staff. Nice linens and comfy beds. Flat screen TV and better than average hotel breakfast. Considerate of m/c riders and will give you a ground floor so your bike is right outside your door if possible. No pool, hot tub etc. But a great room, good breakfast and reasonable price.

Best motel I've stayed in for a long time. Doesn't look like much from the road--wouldn't really think to stop there. But do! Huge, super clean rooms. Best motel bed We've had in years. Ditto pillows! LIKES: big, long useful desk, w/ comfortable chair--desk not taken up w/ TV. Big table that's squared , so good usable space. 110 outlets... More

Was on a bike trip headed to Glacier National Park and stopped here for the night. What a surprise to find such a nice hotel with very friendly staff and great rooms at a great price. Rooms were very clean and hotel right along side the Clearwater river.

You never know what you get when you book several months in advance but the 12 was a winner. Judie was a great help and the rooms were more than we could ask for. Great place and value. The breakfast was one of the best and well stocked. Thank you.
