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.

For less than $60 per night, you will not go wrong! Large room, clean room, king-size bed provided an awesome sleep, full breakfast, chairs and table outside door to enjoy outdoors. Will definitely come back again!!

The Clearwater 12 offers friendly service, extra large rooms, extra clean rooms, extra comfortable beds, extra ordinary view of the beautiful Kamiah hills which is the beginning of the Nez Perce trail of tears. All is terrific at the 12! Can't wait for my next visit! Thanks, Manager of the 12, Judie!

Can't really fault this small motel in small but interesting town. Spacious clean room with nice views. Yes there was a barking dog as per a previous reviewer but only heard it three times and it stopped each time after 30 seconds. Interesting place to vosit albeit not a destination place but fine for an enroute stopover
