This was the second time I stopped here overnight. Orofino is not the kind of town you can spend a great deal of time in. I was there because some 52 years earlier, I had worked in the Forest Service and wanted to see some of the woods I had seen back then. The elevator is a classic, self service... More

Stayed here for one night and found this to be a very nice hotel. Room was perfect, clean and quite. The hotel is conveniently located in the downtown area with restaurants and other businesses close by. I will stay here the next time I am in town.

We had gotten sidetracked by a Big-Rig Diesel Truck wreck on Highway 12 and spent the night at this Hotel. The Hotel Staff and people in Town were very friendly. The Rooms were large with full Kitchens. Everything was modern except for the Elevator, which added to the character of the Hotel. We had a great stay and would highly... More

I was on a M/C and came over hwy 12 over the Lolo Pass. Was going to camp but it was raining and I needed wifi since I had no cell service. I pulled up to the Helgeson to glom onto the wifi and inquired about a room. They provided a nice comfy room with a kitchenette that allowed cooking.... More

Needing a place to stay in the area while on a weekend road trip, I did a Google search for hotels in Orofino. It was early evening, and I was tired, needed a place with food on-site or nearby, and was pet-friendly. I stopped at the Best Western first. They had no rooms available and the gal there recommended the... More

A clean comfortable hotel with a great staff! A great place to stay if you are passing through or an extended stay. This is an older building in "downtown" well taken care of and maintained. A nice quiet area outside to relax at night or to have breakfast in the morning.

Nice folks, clean property, quiet, convenient to Highway 12. Ninety-year-old historic property remodeled over the years, currently has about 20 units as hotel rooms, formerly apartments, including working elevator. No specific fee is mentioned for traveling with a pet, so be aware that they will charge you upon check-in. I was not prepared for the additional fee--made reservation online, confirmed... More

I am from Illinois and every time I come to Orofino (every few years) I look forward to staying here. I usually get the two room suite since I have children. They are HUGE for the money. The staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. Won't stay anywhere else.
