I traveled here for work and was upgraded to a suite, which was nice. I wasn't aware that this is a motel, all rooms are accessed externally with no internal/hallway access. It is right across from the river which has a nice walking path. The breakfast is complimentary and better than an average continental breakfast - with made-to-order 1-egg omelettes... More

We were in town to attend a wedding and used reward points to stay here. We were treated the same as full paying customers and found the staff to be so friendly!! They accommodated an early check-in so we could get changed for the wedding, had extremely comfortable beds/pillows, and a great complimentary continental breakfast including an omelet station and...

Overall, great place to stay. Easy to find and fast check-in. Room accommodation was very pleasant and clean. Located right across river from downtown Idaho Falls. Nice walk across bridge to town for dinner and shop browsing. Enjoyed the indoor hot tub. Breakfast was also very good with eggs or omelets made to order and brought to your table. We... More

Once, again, we chose this hotel based on reviews we read on TripAdvisor. We weren't sure what our room was going to be like as it first appeared to be a tiny little motel. When we opened the door to our two queen room, we were met with a lovely little kitchen with a big wooden kitchen table and granite... More

This place reminds me of a 50s style lodge. We had a very small king room facing a courtyard parking lot. It's quaint and clean, albeit small. The fridge in the room has a freezer, which is nice, but it does hum quite a bit. The bed is on the hard side, but not bad. Crisp sheets. Remote control is... More

Fantastic hotel right along the river!! Nice view and easy access to the walking path across the street. Parking was great and the staff were very nice. Continental breakfast was great. Has an omelet bar which we had never seen before and was a great option plus other hot and cold options. No one left hungry! Hotel is clean and... More

Overall this a wonderful value in a peaceful location along the river parkway. The breakfast is excellent and above the usual, the rooms are large, but the beds are soggy. I would stay again and hope that another room has a better mattress.

We have stayed here many times over the years when we are visiting family and friends in the area. It is pretty much perfect! It is very close to the river and it is best to request a room with a view of the river. The rooms are well-maintained and the bathrooms are updated with good quality tile. Breakfast is... More

Easy to find this place less than a mile from the interstate. Great location on the riverfront overlooking the falls. There are more rooms than there are parking spots but plenty of street parking that seemed well lit and safe. Rooms are spacious, many overlooking the river. Clean, well appointed. Price was around $90 plus tax for a king room... More
