“Don't stay here !!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2006

The Cabana Inn is easily one of the worst places I have ever stayed in the United States. I would not have stayed here, but the town was sold out due to a large soccer tournament. My only other lodging option was 50 miles away in Oregon.

The owners are very nice, but are from a 3rd world country. They have brought their accommodation philosophies to Idaho with the Cabana Inn. It's very basic, kind of clean, smells funny, cinder block walls, and is very run down. It reminds me of places I've stayed at in Asia for $3-$10 dollars a night. So if you feel like traveling to a 3rd world country and don't want to travel that far, come and stay at this place.

My air conditioner in my room sounds like a pair of work boots in the clothes dryer, and it’s 90+ outside. I also have serious doubts about the neighborhood, as it appears they are going to re-make the movie Deliverance, and the perspective cast is hanging out in the parking lot.

True, the staff is nice, but the place is very old. My daughter described it as, "ghetto." Our room had an odd smell (meth amphetamine production site??) and the T.V. reception was poor. We complained. We were given another room that smelled heavily of smoke. My husband has chronic sinusitis and can't detect odors well, but he did here.We left and went to the Budget Host Inn, a much nicer place for a few dollars more.
