I was traveling from Seattle to Twin Falls, ID for a funeral and had no idea where to stop. I was sad and traveling alone, which made my boyfriend uncomfortable. He researched online as I drove and found reviews and pricing for Royal Motor Inn. He called and made a reservation for me after speaking with the owner for a bit. The owner was so kind that he was actually able to assure my protective boyfriend that I was going to be safe...most impressive!! When I finally arrived, I felt totally comfortable and so happy with the choice we made that I stopped again on my way back to Seattle. The rooms are $38 (bottom line), no unnecessary bells and whistles that easily double your rates. Not to mention, the killer restaurant (10 Depot Street) just 4 blocks away.
However, nothing can be perfect, so, just so you're not surprised (or think I'm getting paid for this :): It is a bit noisy; the convenience of main-road access means SOME traffic noise. The TV's are small and a little fuzzy (thank the cable-guy?) and the mattresses are a smidge uncomfortable, at least in the smoking room. But the heat works, the lights work and the FREE internet is super-fast! I think it's well worth trading in the 'ironing boards and hair dryers' on sincere people and cozy lodging!!! I will be staying here for every stop-over in the future.
