“Lovely View of the River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The room had a lovely sitting area outside the door that over looked the river walk. The room appeared clean. There was a tear on the pillow case and the bathtub drained very slowly, but the staff seemed interested in the draining issue when told about it. I would stay here again if I were ever in need of a hotel in Idaho Falls.

I just love this place. The staff there are so helpful and caring. The rooms are lovely and the grounds beautiful. I travel with my German Shepherd Dogs and always get a warm welcome. I also have health issues but the staff there has always worked with me to get me in a room that works best for me. I'll be returning there again next month and can't wait to arrive.

The room was awesome, the service was friendly and helpful. This Best Western is right across the street from the Snake River. Really nice opportunity just to get out and walk. We always stay there on our way to or from Yellowstone and have always had a terrific experience.

The wife and I stayed here on a recent trip. The room was clean, but definitely on the small side.
The staff was relatively helpful. There appear to be three areas to this property, we stayed in the old motel section. The breakfast room was rather small for the number of rooms and the number of people staying here.
The Greenbelt Park across the street is very nice and pleasant.

Really enjoyed my stay!!! We felt welcome from the first moment we stepped into the lobby. We were traveling with our Siberian Husky and couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. Not only is the property lovely the location you can't beat. Right across the street is the park and Idaho Falls. Great place to walk your dog and relax by the water. Rooms were clean, modern and very spacious. The staff unbeatable! Everyone was so welcoming and helpful and very SERVICE oriented! We happened to be driving thru on our way MN and on our return trip to CA a week later, made sure we booked a room again! Only wish we could have stayed more than a day! The property offers bikes for their guests and breakfast is served hot! Met the property owner and manger and she was a delight! THIS is most definitely a PET FRIENDLY PLACE! Thank you Best Western Driftwood Inn!!! We will return!

Room Tip: If your traveling with pets request a ground floor room.

I had a lovely overnight stay as I was passing through. I was traveling with my 11 year old labrador and was happy to see that a nicer hotel, like Best Western, would allow pets. I also requested a river view if at all possible and had an amazing one! They folks at the lobby were so nice and accommodating to Dixie and I. The room was large and gorgeous. Updated decor and colors. Plugs at both lamps next to the bed mean a lot! Beautiful location and great value. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Great service staff and breakfast. Small rooms with strong, unpleasant odors. My wife and I would stay here again based on the helpfulness of the staff, breakfast, and the location, not based on the rooms.
