Alpine Lodge and Motel

Reviewed November 30, 2012

We loved our two night stay at the Pinewood Lodge. The owner and his brother were so friendly and helpful, and the room was super clean. Great amenities: refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and a decent number of TV channels. They didn't have an icemaker, so the owner buys bags of ice so that he can provide ice for his guests. Extremely dog friendly, and the RV park behind the motel is a great place to walk your dog. They waived the $10 pet fee for the second night, even though we warned them that our dog had tracked in some dirt. Loved this place!

We do our best to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. At your request, we will supply extra towels, coffee, etc. All rooms are supplied with a small refrigerator, a microwave, coffee pot and coffe, cable tv, heat and air conditioning. You will also find a couple bars of soap, along with some shampoo, conditioner, and hand lotion. At your request, we can also fill your ice bucket, which is located in every room. We do accept well trained pets, and rest assured, after each check-out, we clean each room as if there were never a pet in the room. This is the reason we charge the $10 fee per pet.... to make sure we can spend the extra time on the room removing any hair and so forth. We look forward to each and every guest.... and greatly appreciate the business.

We stayed at the Pinewood Lodge last night and it was an amazing stay for the price. The people were friendly even late at night! For a $54.00 room it was way beyond our expectation. Soft towels, clean smelling linens and comfortable mattresses made it a wonderful night. We would have been just as happy if the room was $75.00.

You can expect exactly what this customer experienced: Friendly service and clean, comfortable rooms. It is our goal to provide a nice place to stay, but also not charge a fortune in the process.
Come on by, spend the night, and save enough to buy food and gas for the next day.

We thought this hotel was a great place to stay. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable as well as nicely set up with a comfy chair and coffee and microwave and fridge. Cable TV was a bonus even tho staying in an area like that close to Mts and Lakes and fishing you don't really need TV. I don't know what it was like before, the sign said "new owners", but it is VERY nice and we would highly recommend it, also the "new owners" are very accomodating and Very pleasant.

We were thrilled to have such a nice place to stay at the Pinewood and at such a reasonable price. The location is great and close to cafes, convenience stores and it is on the main street of Cascade coming into town. Our room had a coffee pot, fridge, microwave, AC and TV, Our bed was new and very comfortable and the room was clean and cozy. Dave, the new owner along with his visiting brother Ron, were friendly and accommodating. They knew the area well and had good advice. We would not hesitate to stay again with them even if the room price increased Pinewood would still be a great value.

Room Tip: No swimming pool, but the Payette River is not far away.

I have to agree with the "Good and Getting Better" Review. This little place smells like clean linens when you walk in the room. It is easy to see the improvements to date. The new owner is trying hard so you will find the rooms clean. He is planning on painting in the fall. His prices are ridiculously low so if your looking for a bargain - this is it! He needs to raise them a bit if he's gonna make it. Our room also had a coffee pot, fridge & microwave. New shower curtain, had to be newly tiled bathroom and new faucets. Shower was good, hot & lots of pressure. Small room, quaint and comfortable mattress. I would definitely stay again.

We stopped at the Pinewood by chance. We met Dave the new owner. Dave said the motel had been neglected in the past and that he is renovating the property room by room. The room we stayed in was clean (Dave even disinfects the TV remotes), convenient, and priced well. The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We had our two dogs with us and they were welcome at the Pinewood. We enjoyed our stay and went back for a 2 day stay 2 weeks later. Even though the motel is highway adjacent, the room was quiet and we slept well.The Pinewood reminded us of small town America, chairs in front of the rooms, we sat and chatted with other guests. We will be back.

I had the same experience as OpenRoadX--seedy doesn't begin to describe it. The appearance from the outside was very deceiving--it looked rustic and cozy. Same scenario, by the time I had found the hairs and critters in the fridge and flies and dirt by the bed tables it was dark and cold and an older family member was caring for the property at the time. When I spoke with the owner on their return, he said things had gotten away while he was gone. Trust me, the filth and disregard had gotten away from him a long time ago. DISGUSTING YUCK!!!!
