My wife and I stayed 3 nights in July. We loved the views, and watched wildlife from the deck each evening. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed visiting with our hostess each day, and appreciated that the location was just outside of town. We would recommend it to anyone.

I passed through Stanley on a cross country road trip and pulled into town at dusk to find this one of the only open accommodations. As others have said, this hotel is run by a couple who live in the house/office adjoining the property. The wife is very friendly and helpful. The husband is a bit gruff, but managed to... More

Room was clean w/ basic amenities, but the elderly gentleman running the place was a "crab" at best. We had a couple of questions and he acted like he was doing us a favor to even answer the door. There are snarky, long, and detailed signs/messages posted all around the room, (no one else allowed in the room, no one... More

Stanley is a weird and wonderful place. It is said to be the coldest place in Idaho and it was 3 above zero in late October, 2012 with everything coated in beautiful flocked snow.. The Motel was modest, the host was helpful and friendly and the room had a functioning kitchenette with pots and pans etc. It was ultra clean,... More

The accommodations are standard for the area, but clearly over priced. The place was clean, the view quite poor. I'd suggest looking elsewhere because you'll get more for the money. The owner reminded me of an ex-military man that runs a tight ship and is highly inflexible.

I booked 3 nights in Stanley, first at the High Country Inn. It wasn't at all what I expected and not very clean with a fifties kitchen and bath. I left after one night. I then went to the Valley Creek. How refreshing to have a clean, fresh smelling room. First I met Herb, a nice man who runs the... More

Clean, no frills motel. If you need a moderately comfortable room in Stanley or a large room with a kitchenette for preparing your own meals, you can consider Valley Creek. If you're looking for a nicer room with up-to-date decor (decor here is not old or dirty, just very low-budget) and spectacular views, you might want to try someplace else.... More

We called ahead & were assured the property was handicap accessible w ramp & bath bars prior to our 6/2011 trip. My husband has muscular dystrophy & can only walk a few shaky steps while hanging on - on flat ground. We weren't told the parking lot was loose gravel & the only access to the ramp. His scooter wheels... More

As in most of the reviews the view was fantastic and being able to go out both sides of the building to look at it is a bonus. Victoria was very helpful in guiding us to an interesting afternoon outing and a great breakfast spot. When we checked in to the room there was a dirty facecloth left on the... More

The Valley Creek Motel is conveniently located on the west side of town on Highway 21. There are 7 rooms total. We stayed on the second floor which offered good views of the Sawtooths from the front balcony and a pleasant view off the rear deck of the Valley Creek and nearby hills. As with most of the motels in... More
