We checked in after leaving another motel in the same town due to it being dirty. Very clean and encouraged me to check the room before paying any money. Super nice staff. Pillows were firmer than I am used to, but that is my hang up. Would stay again and bring my own pillow next time.

The front desk was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean and nice. Hotel is older but still in great shape. Saw deer as we walked into the hotel. Had good views of the mountains.

I though the front desk clerk was very helpful with the going on in town and orientation around central Idaho. I'll Make a point to stop through again. Also very clean rooms. Very well kelp. The bathrooms are clean, I don't have pets but this is a pet friendly stay over.

This was my 7th motel since June 10th. The front desk clerk (not sure if she's owner) was very welcoming and helpful with information about where to eat. My main requirements when I travel are clean, comfortable, safe & not being charged 5 star prices for a 3 star property this property met all of that criteria. Room had refrigerator,... More

We just took a long family road trip and stayed off the beaten path. We never called ahead for a hotel--we just went. We were so glad this hotel was in the next little town! I did call ahead from a town up the road just to make sure they had a room for us. The lady from the hotel... More

Someone is working on this old place. It has a coat of new white high gloss paint and new carpet. I would suggest the next fix might be new mattresses. No in room coffee...coffee is to be had by going to the Kitchenette room and starting a pot. Sheets were clean, faint smell of smoke in the upholstered chairs, which... More

Great price for a basic room if staying in Challis. It is not fancy, it's an older hotel, but it is clean. The staff is friendly. There was a common room for coffee and cooking if you were so inclined. Free wifi.

Under the circumstances it was okay. It was the best hotel in the area. We were up there for a wrestling match, so we didn't have a lot of options. We ate at the Village Inn, and the food was pretty good. We were glad we didn't stay there! Next time we might stay at a bed and breakfast instead.... More

I didn't expect much given the low rate; just an inexpensive stop on the way to my destination and hopefully not too scary. As it turned out, it was spotless; free of the usual array of unpleasant odors common in older properties. The mattress was lofty and very comfortable and the carpet appeared new. Despite the ground floor, this room... More
