“Old Town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

The town has added a lot of new shops and bistro type cafes, which is fun. They have put a lot of effort into giving down town Pocatello a face lift.....but the parking is limited. The shops I visited were nice for browsing....but pretty expensive.

“Scary and dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

If you want to park your car in front of tatoo parlors, pawn shops, and prostitutes, eat at one of the restaraunts in downtown pocatello. If you love your wife, take her somewhere else!

“Old RR Station, old hotel--not much to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

We were passing through the city, went to the visitors center and got information about the old town, mainly to see the old Union Pacific railroad station, which has some interesting points. Across the street is the Hotel Yellowstone, probably a landmark at one time. There are some other buildings from the 1890s-1900s, but not of any significance. The area is a commercial section with some restaurants, but no place that rellly interested us--that seemed to be the feeling we got from the visitors center.
