Palouse gouges customers when nothing else is available. Prices are double what they should be. The condition of the pool clearly indicates management lack of concern & energy. The only redeeming factor for my grandchildren was the prospect of the pool. Reception glibly told us a pipe had burst as though it had occurred yesterday. Green slime & filth would... More

My family and I stayed there for WSU graduation. I was worried after reading the reviews, but after checking in I was happy to see how clean the room was. The room was small and our pack n play blocked some of the bathroom door, but we were there for one night and the room served its purpose. The staff... More

I booked this "motel" only because it was literally the LAST one available in the area for the Vandal's Mom's weekend. Pros: proximity to the University and staff were very nice Cons: cost, room was tiny and hot (even with a/c on full blast), continental breakfast was a joke, tv connection was blurry and blinked frequently and the biggest complaint...

This was one of the most horrible hotels I have ever been in! First room was freezing cold, room had not been cleaned from previous guests, so next room was freezing and there were used matches all over the floor! I said, "There is no way that I am staying in the dump"! Especially since The Best Western was down... More

I have stayed at the Palouse Inn several times over the years because it offers a very reasonable deal for the area. It is an older motel so, things are a little worn, but it's always served me well. It's been clean, quiet, plenty of parking and the staff has always been pleasant and easy to work with. The town... More

Our band travelled here for the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival (amazing by the way) and this was the cheapest hotel in the area and was extremely close to the U of I. It was an alright place to sleep and I wasn't uncomfortable with anything but I wouldn't want to spend any amount of time in the room. But overall... More

Unfortunately my kids are there for a band trip and I have been receiving frantic texts about bed bugs. They have moved rooms, but now I have to make sure they don't come home with them. Wish they had checked it out before they slept in the bed.

When we entered the room I could see crumbs of food along the edges of the furniture and long black hair on the floor of the bathroom. I have blonde hair and my husband is bald. I decided to put the maid service sign out for the next day....When we returned I saw the same crumbs and the same black... More

A friend always used this business for quite a while when he visited the area. The cleaning quality seemed pretty hit and miss. The price varies widely for the exact same room. After a couple years of patronage he choose another place to stay.
