Because we have several Best Western gift cards we decided that this trip would use those up so booked BW from Canada to the US border. When we pulled up to the Driftwood inn my travelling companion looked at it and commented this is just an old motel. To which I replied, "it is only 1 night" The staff at... More

We were really pleased with the place, great breakfast. The rooms were clean,the beds were comfortable, the park across was breathtaking at nights. There were quite a few good restaurants near by. There was adequate places for us to walk the dog. We were only there for one night passing thru but plan to stop there on our way back.... More

Every single person that we met and saw in the hotel was cheery and super helpful. This includes even the guy at the front desk who was there when we checked in at 4pm and then worked all night. When we came in for breakfast, he was exactly as cheery. This is the best breakfast that I have ever seen... More

I stay at this hotel frequently and it never fails to be outstanding in all categories. They are welcome me as a regular and acknowledge my loyalty. Their Breakfast Bar making omletes and eggs is the best and unique in the other Best Western Breakfast Bars.

We arrived tired. The guy at the counter was extremely helpful and efficient. We didn't have reservations, and we had our dog with us. We got a huge room that had a kitchenette complete with dishes! Since we were pulling a trailer we actually had groceries in the trailer that we brought in and were able to cook. The room... More

This place is really great. It has the feel of an old motor inn motel, but the room was very nice and the staff was great. Super clean. The location is super, you can walk across the street to the river. They have a omlette bar for breakfast. Highly recommended! I will stay there whenever I am in Idaho Falls.

We stayed here on a recent Sunday in October. Our room had a king size, comfortable bed, micro and small fridge. Our shower had been recently renovated displaying dual shower heads. Hot soup and coffee was available for free in the evening. We utilized a pet friendly room which was clean and fresh. We were charged a $10 pet fee.... More
