After a long days drive with my son on our wonderful road trip to Utah we decided to stay in a motel instead of camp. We are not the finicky type!! The owner first seemed offended that I wanted to use a credit card and I got a funny feeling so I paid with cash. He kept asking if we... More

We stopped here when we got tired of driving. We got there very late, around midnight. The price was very low. The hotel owner was a very nice older man. He made conversation, and walked us into our room and showed us how to work the AC. It was a kind gesture. The hotel is definitely showing signs of age,... More

On our trip to Yellow Stone and looked for a quick and cheap place to sleep @ 1am. Compared to some hostels we have been in this is pretty do-able! This place is not for the hotel motel holiday Inn type! But it is super clean. ( my room was at least) Neighborhood is good and quiet, but you do... More

The first impression is the office. It smelled of rancid grease and was filled with junk and overflowing ash trays. The manager was very matter of fact, but not at all friendly. We would have moved on, but we were on a motorcycle with a nasty looking storm moving in. After a little private debate (much to the annoyance of... More

At midnight, after two days of driving, we were tired and another place didn't answer the bell, but this one did. I can't rate the service because I stayed in the car while my husband got the room. It was rather large and had newer carpeting, but furnishings were very outdated and condition of fixtures was pretty bad. The sheets... More

While the manager seemed nice and the price was decent, the room was awful. The shower was tiny and had mold and chipping paint so we didn't even shower. Also the towels were questionable, they looked wrinkled as if they had been used. Beware pet owners if you walk your dog where the manager says to walk it there are... More

My husband was finishing my sister's basement in Boise and we were headed home when we had some car trouble. We stopped at this hotel to spend the night and after getting a key and checking our room out, we couldn't stand the place. My sister needed more help and my husband wanted to stay in Boise to finish the... More

Older motel, tiny shower, TV remote mostly doesn't work,electricity distribution by extension cords, thin curtains let lots of light in from security lights. Worst thing: Noisy trains blowing whistles at all hours of the night. You won't get much sleep.

I was going to meet an acquaintance from nearby town there, in expectation or renting room. Expecting acquaintance any minute, took a seat on a bench outside office to wait. Within a few minutes, hostile manager with poor English asked what I was doing. I said I was waiting for friend from out of town to arrive. Manager proceeded to... More
