“Spokane river is the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

I have stayed here one weekend every summer since discovering this place 3 years ago. Best location on the river and most comfy beds. If your room is not quite ready, go have a drink on the deck ....relax .... life is good.

Older hotel the rooms and enterance were remodeled not to long ago. Room has frig and microwave. One thing they need to change is the speed of the door closure. The doors slam loud if the occupant does not hold and close the door softly. The view depending on which side you have is the river/lake. The grounds are well kept up.

We think when we stay at a motel/hotel that the bed is very important, if you don't sleep good then you don't function as well the next day. The beds at the Templins are great! Clean, comfortable and make you want to stay in them. :)The river view is beautiful. The staff very helpful and welcoming. Rooms clean and smelled nice. Thanks Templins we'll be back over and over again!

Room Tip: Great beds. Clean and beautiful location on river.

On the "second floor" you have a view of the river, excellent! Our first night was almost perfect. Our second night had a smoker on the first floor below us and even with the air conditioner on, the smoke came into our room. We didn't alert anyone, just worked around the inconvenience and smell. The breakfast buffet was included in our price and on day 1 was excellent. Day 2 there was an issue with the pancake machine and so the grill made us fresh ones but they weren't edible. Overall, we will stay again as the room was plush, clean, comfy and really nice!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for the view!

We stayed here midway on a long trip and were tired and in need of a comforting place. This was not it.
First, there was no one at reception and we had to wait and then finally call out before someone came to the check-in desk.
It was supposed to have a pool, spa and sauna with changing room, showers and towels. The spa was emptied, the sauna not on and there was no soap in the showers, so we had to walk back to our room in swimsuits in order to wash off the considerable chlorine. The staff seemed unconcerned about this when we called to complain.
The restaurant was closed and so we had to eat in the bar, which, while not unpleasant or bad, was certainly not as advertised.
The halls are not well lit and the place seemed deserted. Guess I know why after this experience.

Good day. I wanted to say that I am terribly sorry for the experience you had while with us in Post Falls. This level of service is not acceptable frankly and not indicative of our normal procedures. I will take this review and ensure that this does not happen moving forward and can only hope next time you see a Red Lion hotel you will allow us to show you our true level of service at all of our hotels. Thank you for taking the time from your very busy day to let us know how your stay was.

We had a large number of family and friends who stayed at the Templins for several days when our daughter was married. They were all pleased with the rooms and service. The Templins staff and resort worked with us when we needed to extend the special wedding group rate. Not only that, the day before the wedding, a member of the staff called to get the address of the church in case a guest asked, and to see if there was anything else they could do for us. So they get the highest marks for service above and beyond wht they need to do.

I wanted to say how thrilled we are to hear that your wedding went off without a hitch!! Wedding days are so hectic and can be so stressful and the fact that they took some of this off you shoulders is outstanding. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy lies to let us know how well we did for you and your family!!!!! Have a great holiday season!

I visited this hotel and ordered the romantic getaway package. Originally we had a room without a view but they upgraded us free of charge to a room with a view of the river and immediately brought our stuff to our new room. The staff at the front desk was nice and pleasant. Our room was nice but a little small especially the bathrooms but the actual tub/shower was a good size. For just two people the room was reasonable. The pool and hot tub were disgusting and looked like they hadn't been cleaned in months but we still swam and soaked and just showered afterward. The location was nice, close to Coeur D' Alene and other close restaurants and things to do. Overall it was a great experience.
