Stayed two nights at this motel across the street from Idaho State University and near the Clean Museum. Breakfast was above average for a budget motel. Asked the desk clerk for a recommendation for dinner and he suggested Elmer's next door which had good service and food at a budget price. Staff was friendly and everything worked well.

The folks at the front desk are very kind, nice, and helpful. That is where the good of this place ends. The room itself brings me back to when I lived in he ghettos of Seoul, South Korea. Staying at this hotel is what I imagine living in a garbage can to be like. It is old, run down, and... More

Not sure where everyone was - owner, manager, management company execs, cleaners, maintenance personnel - someone should send out a bulk missing person(s) report. Disappointing for a Choice Hotel for sure; we recommend they leave vacuum cleaners and various cleaning products in the room along with soap and shampoo and we would have left it in better shape. Best thing... More

We were driving down I 15, it was getting late and we got tired. Found this place as the only affordable option left when checking travel websites. Might have booked the last available room. So, you take what you get... This hotel has seen better days that's all I can say. It was ok for a few hours rest

Was really looking for something to recommend this place, as every lodging is someone's livelihood, but as a reviewer and travel writer, it's necessary to give an honest appraisal, and this is just honestly a bad stay. The bed is old and rickety, and the bedcover had food stuck to it on check-in. Surfaces we stained and some sticky. The... More

I booked this hotel for a business trip in Pocatello, since we had multiple rooms, budget didn’t allow for the higher-end stays. Also, all the hotels in the area were booked due to sporting events championships. The location is right across from the university, so I thought conditions wouldn’t be so bad The building is very old and in need... More

We expected the worst here, due to the low price and some previous negative reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. We found things to be clean, comfortable and with a very complete breakfast in the morning!

We never made it passed the lobby. The women was so rude. I turned around and walked out. It smelled like a pool. When my kids got excited thinking there was a pool. The front desk tells them hay don't get your hopes up there's no pool. That smells from how they clean. How cleans with chlorine. She then turns... More

Rodeway Inn directly across from the University. It is an Older Motel however my room was clean and adequate for a nights stay. More than O.K. for the budget price you pay. Has a very basic breakfast but if you wish Elmer's Next Door has A Great Breakfast ! Enjoy !
