We really did enjoy this BW on a river area with Trains going by slowly. The feel is an old western town, and the food in town was excellent as well as food in the BW Restraurant. Room was modern and great side--wonderful bathroom -all stone. Parking excellent and access tricky but simple, keeping you in from the elements. Beautiful... More

This hotel is all about the river for us. Private balconies on the Kootenai River with plenty of river life. This is a casino. Typical smokey lobby. One very small smoke free casino room with mostly one cent machines. Good restuant on river. Make sure you ask for a river front room.

Not only are the rooms impeccable, but frequent upgrades are very nice. The staff, in general, is "top-notch" and this is refreshing to see in a tough, competitive industry. Enjoyed our stay again. See you in September for another fun weekend!

Other than the casino accessible from the lobby, the first thing that hits you upon entering is cigarette smoke. Walking to our room: cigarette smoke. Walking almost anywhere in the hotel: cigarette smoke. The smoke wafts in from the casino. Thankfully our room was smoke free and offered a nice little balcony overlooking the river. Quite a bit of late-night... More

we have stayed here many times and the hotel always comes through with great service and clean rooms. The casino is fun and the great addition of machines that only takes Canadian money is fantastic.. The food is always good in the restaurant and service is wonderful.
