“Cozy”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

We enjoyed our stay, but I was surprised after reading all the rave reviews to find this place is not as "excellent" as I hoped. It was very convenient for a short overnight stay although the noise from the highway at night and the noise of the neighbors when running water in their rooms as enough to disrupt our sleep. The rooms were clean but very basic. Our room had a few cable channels (15 maybe?) no vcr or dvd, no hairdryer or coffee pot. The front office did not open until 7:00 AM and served orange juice, coffee, hot water, tea bags, and locally made lemon poppyseed bread. It was nice but very limited and we could have used coffee much earlier as well as a light breakfast of toast or fruit for our toddler who is always hungry first thing in the morning and this place is quite a jaunt from a restaurant. Our room did not have a fridge or microwave. They were generous with the soap and shampoo which smelled nice. The comforters and pillows were abundant. Between the highway and the parking lot there is a small man-made pond with fish. The kids (ours and two other families) enjoyed feeding them from a cup of food given to them by someone at the front desk. We did not use the hot tub but my husband said it was indoors. There was an ice machine and a soda vending machine. It worked well for us because we just needed somewhere to crash-out on our way into Montana and it is located right before the turnoff for Hwy 2 that heads east into Montana. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the gift shop was cute. My son was particularly enthralled with the caged doves. The internet did not work well late at night and there was poor cell signal as well. During the morning hours the internet worked really well.
We would probably stay again if we needed somewhere to stay in order to break up the long drive but I found it limiting for us in many ways with a toddler: needing refreshment/food/snacks/coffee in AM, and the noise from the highway was disruptive at times. We liked many things about this place but I can't give it a four or five star for the reasons listed.

Room Tip: Rooms are all on one level facing highway. Only about 1 tenth of a mile off highway. "continen...

This little place is a wonderful find for Bonners Ferry. While it is on the highway it is hidden behind huge trees that deaden the sounds. The rooms are large and have little personal touches that make them so welcoming and comfortable. While they do not have a fridge or microwave, for the price, the value is there. A small continental breakfast with homemade poppyseed bread, coffee and juice is available under the portico outside. Each room also has a table and two chairs outside. What a great way to relax after driving all day. Staff is great and very helpful with great recommendations for food. Would definitely stay again and thank you to the owners and staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

Although this hotel is on the highway, it is surrounded by a lush landscape, complete with a large pond and a water fountain. There is a large round table with 2 chairs outside the rooms and although you can hear the traffic, you can't see it. Inside our room we could not hear any traffic noise. I especially liked the huge closet/dressing area that provides lots of room for your luggage. The counter area in the bathroom is also spacious. Everything is clean, making this a great bargain. Be Aware, the sign only says "Log Inn" so we passed it up. An excellent restaurant for dinner is Papa Byrds Bistro which is very close.

Like others have said, finding a place to stay in Bonners Ferry is a bit of a challenge unless you want to stay at the casino hotel or a B & B. The Log Inn is on the North side of town and close enough to anywhere you might want to go. The rooms are decorated in the log furniture theme and are absolutely great. The most important thing...CLEAN! Add comfortable and spacious and you have a Log Inn room. Nice folks who run this place. The only negative thing I will say is about the hot tub...only half the jets worked and the water was a little murky, which is always concerning. But the rooms are clean, the staff is pleasant. Nothing fancy as far as breakfast and so forth. If you are just wanting a clean, affordable, convenient place to stay...here it is.

Another great stay at this clean, quiet, comfortable motel. Down the hill and in the mall on the right we ate at this excellent Italian reastaurant. Will definitely repeat this experience again.
Truly great people at both businesses. Good rest and good food.

This was a motel that was suggested to us to stay a long weekend when we were in the area for a church meeting. It was attractive, quiet and clean. The price for the stay was very reasonable, and the staff was pleasant. There is no iron or ironing board in the room, but the desk clerk quickly got me one. The only drawback is the lack of a full continental breakfast (I'm sure the poppyseed bread would have been good, although the coffee was somewhat weak), but we found a nice bakery just up the road that had breakfast burritos and breakfast sandwiches and very good huckleberry fry pies, so we did quite well. If we get a chance to go back to the area, this is where we'll stay.
