This was one of the low spots on out trip, cause partly by the late arrival (4am) and departure (2am) of our much delayed Amtrak train. We were lucky that the local taxi service was still running when we arrived and relieved to find a clean room. The hotel reception showed no interest in finding us a room for a second night (a late decision by us the train was going to be so late) even though we were paying and they clearly had rooms. The guy who ran the taxi service (one taxi, apparently, for a whole town) was taking a night off when we tried to go back to the station. The person on the reception showed almost no interest in the fact that we were going to have long walk to the station with bags. After some discussion, he did make some effort to help and a very kind member of staff was found to drive us to the station. It was the end a long shift for her and although we had to leave somewhat early for our (delayed) train, we were very grateful that we did not have to walk in the dark with our bags. Perhaps everyone else arrives in Sandpoint by car!
Other points were that the restaurant/diner adjoining the hotel had a good Sunday brunch menu. The service was good and efficient. The indoor pool was also quite pleasant.
If you are arriving by train and have bags, the Best Western is a better place to stay as they will take you to the station when the train is due. Otherwise, given that the station building used by Amtrak has been condemed, you might have to do as we did and sit outside the station in the dark in the middle of the night!
