Conveniently located off route 12, it is within walking distance of the casino, and various other amenities located in this small town.

We loved this little place and the town of Kamiah. This town is a blast into the wild west of the past. Unfortunately, fire has not been kind to Kamiah since we were there, so please plan to stay there to help out these wonderful people when you go through. The motel was clean, the room spacious, the staff overly... More

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.

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.
