“What a Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Cheap rates that come with a hardy breakfast that changes. Room were clean and staff was attentive. All the amenities without the large price tag. They paid attention to detail especially with extra comfortable beds and pillows. Nothing bad to write about this place. This is where I would stay over and over.

Dec 30, 2013. We have stayed at this location before and find it easy to get to, very clean, quiet, good rooms, great front staff, and an average breakfast. The staff at the breakfast room were very good and had everyone smiling.

We had an excellent stay from the moment of checking in. The hotel is new and has all of the amenities a family needs. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms are nicely appointed. The breakfast was good and we especially loved the warm cinnamon rolls. The staff member helping with breakfast was especially helpful and friendly. Make sure to get a room on the backside of the hotel as the view of the mountains is spectacular! Overall, a great place to stay!

We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was excellent and the seating area was very open and looked out over the mountains. Our room had a view of the mountains and was very nice. The hotel has a close restaurant called Sweet Lou's located in the parking lot. We had dinner there and it was ok, but had a lot of options I think would accommodate several people.

The hotel has a Wal-Mart close by for convenience and was not very far from anything you wanted to do in Sandpoint. Right on the highway so getting to places was very convenient. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The suites do not have windows facing the mountains, instead they look out the other side over the h...

We arrived late. Check in was easy. The room was on the back of the hotel overlooking a quiet meadow with horses, and the view towards Schweitzer mountain. I've stayed here before, and they are consistent. The complimentary breakfast was adequate. Try Lou's BBQ next door. Good grub!

Beyond clean rooms, great staff and breakfast, the view from our room was outstanding. Everything about our stay here was excellent. The breakfast attendant was extremely friendly and helpful. We will be staying there again.

I stayed here with my husband for one night this past weekend and had a GREAT experience. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable and the VIEW out the window was spectacular.....pasture land with creek and mountains in the background. The hotel staff was MORE than eager to help and very, very friendly. We didn't eat the continental breakfast, but took a peek and it looked very appetizing. There is also an indoor pool, which people seemed to be enjoying. We will SURELY GO BACK next September when we take in the Idaho Draft Horse Competition, which is just up the road.

Room Tip: rooms at the back have a great view......
