Very clean, modern. Free wifi. Quit. Very comfortable beds. Free breakfast. We are return customers. Always look forward to seeing Rick. Highly recommended. Refrigerator and microwave are included. We stayed in a room close to the street , but didn't hear street noise.

This is our third visit to the Oregon Trail. Each time we have found that the wonderful owners have made even more improvements to their rooms. The owners are friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and updated. The continental breakfast is good and the owner is willing to tell you about a restaurant on the other side of town...

Since we lived in the area, we've passed this place numerous times without giving it a thought. We recently sold our home and had to return to let workers in before close of escrow. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were pleasantly surprised. Very neat and clean rooms with microwave, small frig, cable TV and pet friendly. Very... More

I almost hate to write a review because I want to keep this place a secret. I was on a long road trip from Portland through Nevada and Utah and saw a review on this place - Buhl Idaho was a good place to stop after a day drive before heading south to Nevada. From the outside, it looked like... More

Super clean room with a comfy bed at a bargain price. Everything you need for the night and to top it all off... extremely good coffee (you do have to skip across the parking lot to get it but really... get off your rear end and get it)!!!
