I’ve stayed here a few times and it was great! But new owners took over and have 2 BIG complaints! The first is don’t reserve a cabin online!!! I did that and it put me in what it said was the last cabin available and of course it was the most expensive and worst one that did not match the pictures at all!! So the first night we noticed we were the only one so we ended up moving the next night to one that was picture correct and much more comfortable. SO CALL THE OFFICE! The second complaint is the next day we were gone for awhile and I noticed that they had entered my cabin by a towel I had thrown on the floor and it was gone but I let it by and didn’t say anything because I was moving to the cabin that I requested and I thought that was the reason but while we were out the next day they came in AGAIN! All they did was pick up 3 kitchen towels! No cleaning!! WHY?? I stay in a lot of motels and unless I request it they don’t enter until we are gone, I felt that my privacy was invaded!! I don’t know if they went through my stuff and if I was a real dick I could have said a large sum of money missing! SO IF YOU STAY THERE BEWARE! Otherwise the cabins are nice except #127 the one they put me in first.…
Note to self: make reservations in advance when staying in a region with few hotels! The upside of our stay was the towels and sheets were of high quality. The room also had a microwave, full-size couch, mini-fridge, and friendly staff. The not so great - dated carpet, stains on the bed spread, and thin walls. The really not so great - three black bugs (alive) found on the bed and a shower head that was 5 ft high (I measured). This just might win the shortest shower award. Gut feeling is the proprietors are somewhat new to Idle-a-while and that they are working steadily to improve things. That is what I want to believe. If so, there is still much to be done to this 50's strip hotel.
The cabins are really reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and quite large (the one we stayed in--#117--had two queen-ish beds and a single for $110.00 in May, so great price). The owner was really, really friendly, personable, attentive, and accommodating. We will DEFINITELY stay here again the next time we do the Cascade Loop!
Friendly staff, reasonably comfortable room. Older style motel, with no bath fan and not many plugs to plug in device chargers. Bed was mid level for comfort. Everything was clean and tidy. End room was noisy with road traffic.
friendly service nice room decent bed but unfortantely have a very poor door locking on its own system so you can't get back in the room they say 1100am and it happens well before eleven so very rude!
