we have homes in Somers Montana and St George Utah. We drive round trip at least twice a year. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. They even remember us. It is perfect (people, view, accommodations, food, etc.)

This hotel was friendly, clean and welcomed my pet. It's nice to have a quality place to sleep when you are traveling with your pets. I will plan to use Best Western hotels in the future when I travel.

I called to book this hotel for Mitch and the weather was pretty bad, so we have to do a credit card authorization through the internet and Heather was a GREAT help! Thank you for making this as streamlined as possible.

Second time was as charming and enjoyable as the first. We arrived in the midst a large snow storm which actually makes Idaho Falls even more beautiful. Our room was warm, the view of the Snake River and LDS Temple amazing; the only drawback was that there was no apparent effort to plow or shovel the walkways or parking lot....

Read reviews before deciding to stay here. All were exactly as stated. Great bed, great room, renovated bathroom. Hot soup in the evening....perfect on a very chilly day. Excellent breakfast....many items available including omelettes made to order.

We stayed here for one night and had planned on going to dinner but when we saw our room was right by the river we changed our mind. Wine and pizza at the picnic table across the street was awesome. Breakfast in am was packed but the hotel ran it well. I would defiantly stay here again!
