Allowed us an early check in and a great river view room. Nice access to parking with lots of access doors so you don't have to carry luggage too far. Walkable to down town. Great breakfast and very comfy room.

We stayed here coming and going on a trip to Canada. We got rooms both times in what appeared to be a new wing to the right of the pool. The rooms were gorgeous, clean and super quiet. Not sure why, but the beds were horrible. Both stays I woke up with the worse knots in my back and I... More

This hotel is perfectly located along the Kootenai River within walking distance of all that Bonners Ferry has to offer. Hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. If you are a gambler I'm sure you will enjoy the on site Casino.

Never would have thought we could have such a delightful and private setting in a Casino. When we made our reservation we didn't realize the BW at Bonner's Ferry was a casino, it ended being our favourite stop. The hotel provided luxurious beds, a nicely appointed room and a private view of the river where we watched eagles fish for... More

This was our first visit to The Best Western. From outside it doesn't look too bad. Casino is there - they got a little restaurant - the rooms are okay. But boy service really makes a difference. First off, the housekeeping group were very proficient. Clean rooms, friendly people, courteous. That side of the operation is good. The housekeeping unit... More

After wandering through Montana and into Idaho we were looking for a nice place to stay. One member of our 3-man motorcycling party had suggested something overlooking water, having just crossed the Plains where bodies of water were a rarity. We spotted this hotel as we were leaving the mountains, and noted that it backed onto a river. The room... More

We're not gamblers, so weren't too sure about staying here, but the experience proved to be really positive. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The staff were super friendly and attentive. And the Sunday brunch was amazing!!!! Overall excellent value. We highly recommend this hotel.

I'll try not to repeat what has been said in other reviews. Yes, green beans were still being served with dinner. However, the ones with our meal on Friday were very tasty, not so much on Saturday. Obviously different chefs. The Sunday Brunch was very good for the price (with the hotel meal ticket discount). Overall we had a good... More
