Found this place after unable to book in Twin Falls; our great fortune. A very nice, comfortable room. The hostess couldn't be any kinder. We sat just outside our rustic exterior room and listened to birds and owls at sunset. This place is located deeply in farmed land and the freshly cut hay lingered in the air. Located along highway 77, but quiet at night. Be sure to grab a bite before arrival as there are no eating establishments nearby. Our hostess does provide muffins and coffee pods for the am. We would not hesitate to return! Thank you.
So glad the Pomerelle website led us to the Marsh Creek Inn in Albion. The room was nice, the bed comfortable, there were muffins and cocoa mix in the room upon arrival. Having read another review, I decided to call in my reservation rather than book online - which worked perfectly, we were able to make special arrangements to essentially check ourselves in and out. We walked around the sweet little town of Albion - nice and peaceful, nowhere to buy anything except the gas station, but we planned ahead and had everything we needed.
About the only option for lodging in Albion and the nearest to the City of Rocks National Reserve that has a TV. It is really quite a nice place and would get 5 stars from me if the owner/desk clerk had been around when we tried to check in. We arrived around 4:30 PM to find no one in the office. The office was locked but with an apparent intercom and a note saying to press the button to speak with someone. Pressing the button repeatedly did not connect me with anyone. The sign out front fortunately had a telephone number which I was able to call from the little store down the road. For some reason my cell phone had no service in Albion. I reached a nice lady who was surprised that she had anyone with reservations for that night, though I had received a confirmation email from when I made the online reservation. At any rate, she met us at the motel shortly after speaking with me and was apologetic concerning the mix up, explaining she had not checked on line reservations for that night. Apparently they don't get many. Really a shame since it is a very nice establishment with all the necessary amenities including fridge, microwave, TV with a complete satellite channel lineup, 2 very comfortable queen beds, good wifi signal, large, clean bathroom with fluffy towels, nice décor and situated in a cozy grove of pine trees. There was no hairdryer and no ice available at the inn unless the previous occupant had left some in the small freezer of the fridge. I bought a bag of ice at the small store and we left most of it in the freezer for the next occupant. There is no restaurant in Albion but there is a small food truck, called Piggy Sue's Bar-B-Q, which served delicious smoked beef bar-b-q as well as a few other sandwiches and side dishes. Since she wasn't very hungry and doesn't eat meat, my wife appreciated that she was able to order a grilled cheese sandwich from the children's menu.…
Nice little hotel. Clean and well maintained. It's the closest hotel to the Pomerelle ski resort. Keep in mind there are no restaurants or bars in Albion so be sure to bring some microwave dinner if you arrive late or are staying a couple days. The hotel does serve muffins and coffee in the morning and has a great hot tub.
This is a very relaxing quaint place. The rooms are very clean and well kept. Each room has it's own theme. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. There is a hot tub, a horseshoe pit, a fire pit, extra chairs, picnic tables and a small covered picnic area. There is a nice grassy spot with large trees, a stream meandering through with frequent visits of deer. In the morning you can see owls and various deer. There is snow skiing close by for the winter months and many other attractions for all year round. This is a great place to join family and friends or just go for a relaxing time.
