We found this place as we looked for a place to stay while driving along Highway 12 in northern Idaho. The hotel is in the center of Orofino, a small town just off the main road. "Downtown" is only a pleasant couple of streets with a handful of cafes, restaurants, and other businesses. Guests can park in an uncovered lot... More

We were traveling in Idaho, and found this hotel in downtown Orofino. Liking older type hotels in small towns we decided to stay here. The room was really a suite, with a full kitchen. Think I even saw plates and cups in the cabinet. The older type elevator was neat too, with the gate that had to be closes to... More

The 1st time I came to Orofino Idaho was on Nov.8th.2013 - (to visit my fiance, who is temporary staying in Orofino until Feb/March 2014).

We travel to Orofino frequently and always stay at the Helgeson. The rooms there are very large and so comfortable! They offer a very nice breakfast and the staff are among some of the best! The location is right downtown within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. Would recommend the Helgeson to anyone visiting Orofino.

This hotel is downtown and is the grand old lady of hotels: the room clean and very roomy with kitchen area. We actually would rather stay here than Best Western which is on the river and owned(I believe) by the same couple.

We are so happy you enjoyed The Helgeson Hotell! The fact that our rooms have a kitchen area really is unique... and makes for a great eat-in/stay over combination. We are in fact owned by the same owner as the Best Western Plus Lodge At River's Edge, both properties benefit from an owner who cares about their businesses and employees.... More

We've stayed here many times & always will when passing through Orofino. Rooms are amazingly spacious. Staff is topflight. Breakfast is decent. The cost is amazingly low for what it is. One of the nicest rooms & best deals in the Columbia River basin.

We were in Orofino to have our vehicle serviced at Hanson garage. The Best Western was booked and they recommended Helgeson Place (same owner). We had a large two bedroom unit with the kitchenette.

We were enroute from Montana back to Idaho and rolled into town needing lodging for one night. We scouted around and decided on this hotel mostly due to its location and we always enjoy hotels with historical background. A very nice front desk woman set us up and boy, were we surprised! It FAR exceeded our expectations! It was pristine!... More
