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

Traveling through Orofino on the river road, this is a great place to stop for the night. Everyone was friendly and helpful. the rooms are very large with a side kitchen completely furnished for cooking plus a large refridge.

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.

We have a reservation set up for Sunday and I love this hotel. Will not stay anywhere else when I visit Orofino. Staff is friendly and the rooms are excellent. I really like that there is a kitchen in the rooms cause it saves a lot of money for those who don't want to eat out. Didn't make the breakfast... More

The Helgeson Place Hotel was recommended by a friend and I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It has small suites with one to two queen beds, a nicely appointed kitchen, a recliner, cable, and wifi. I was there twice and the second room also had a love seat in addition to the list above. I did not cook there... More

After a long day of riding our motorcycles from Washington on our way to Sturgis, we took a wrong turn and missed Hwy 95. It was late and getting dark fast.

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
