I've travelled all over the world and try to avoid the roadside motor inns for obvious reasons since times have changed from staying in them in the 60's and 70's...but took a chance on this Motel. Boy, am I glad I did!!! Fantastic conversation with the owner and his adorable Bulldog...immaculately clean and wonderfully updated room...more immenities than I would have guessed...great breakfast of pastries, muffins and yogurt...and a perfect location - easy drive to hot springs and outdoor activities, yet close to the local "big city" for a movie and nice dinner. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely come back! Made our weekend road trip one of the best trips yet!

Rick, the owner, is very accommodating. HE FOLLOWS THE TWO RULLES OF BUSINESS.
1/ Be easy to do business with.
2/ give them a reason to come back for more.
Rick does this in spades!
The rooms are clean and cozy. It appears the whole place has been updated. I would stay here again and again as I pass thru Buhl, ID

Great VALUE...highly recommended!

A comfortable, affordable and very friendly motel in a nice small town. We have stayed several times while visiting family and coming back to the Oregon Trail is like coming home. We enjoy the comfortable rooms and the friendly staff. The rooms have all the amenities one would need plus internet access and Rick and his staff make every effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible at a very reasonable rate. The breakfast of local foods is interesting and delicious and the coffee and conversation make it a great way to start your day. You can't go wrong staying at the Oregon Trail in if you are in the Twin Falls/Buhl area.

I was in Buhl for less than a day but this was a comfortable and clean place to stay. Price was fair and a big plus is for me to feel safe since I was traveling alone. We had other family staying there too. My aunt and uncle were in the older part that may not have been as updated as the section I was in. There was some concern over the price they were charged too but I didn't hear if that was resolved. Front desk was helpful and friendly. Cute dog to pet. I left too early the next morning so didn't use the breakfast bar since it wasn't open.

This is a rare find for a "mom n pop" motel.

Clean, friendly, reasonable price, nice breakfast bar. It's like saying with a good friend.

The owner, Rick McClain, is a real "trip"....in the best way !!! Fun to be around.

Rooms are spotless with fridge, microwave and wifi.

You won't regret staying here.

We loved our stay here! The managment was very experienced. He has managed hotels all over the world. Also his dog is super adorable. He had several different kinds of bread for breakfast from a local bakery, and fancy tea. The rooms were cute, quiet, and comfortable.
