Best Western Driftwood Inn
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Idaho Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We are Snowbirds and we stay here every January when travelling south for three months. The staff is always so friendly, very helpful and attentive! Our room was fabulous! It is a larger room, spotless, a walk in shower, and such a comfortable bed! The complimentary breakfast is excellent with lots of choice and a very friendly chef, ready to take your order for a very delicious omelette. The hotel is also in a very beautiful location, on the river, and a beautiful view of the temple. Lovely!!

I can honestly say that I'd stay at this hotel again. It is close the the I-15 and many restaurants and stores. The room was massive and i had a 2 queen room. My puppy had an area without feeling cramped. The room was clean and spacious.

We stayed here for a night just prior to dropping off our son at BYU I Rexburg. Bottom line, stay here! Don't bother with properties closer to the school or lower rates. You will miss a wonderful opportunity of knowing what it is like to be hosted by a hotel/motel that knows what is important for clients. The staff are friendly, the rooms are wonderful (beds are super comfortable, bathroom and amenities are amazing) and decorated with complete relaxation and comfort in mind. Our only down moment was that the light over our walk-in shower didn't work, but I know it would have been fixed immediately had we said something. If these things aren't enough to convince you, how about this: beautiful views of the Snake River and Mormon temple, or complimentary homemade soups for guests in the evening, followed by cookies, or when was the last time you went to a complimentary breakfast and they had an Omelette Bar with a staff person making the omelet anyway you wanted?! This property is a gem and I will definitely be back.

We love Best Western and this one was perfect, it's right on the Snake River great view of the LDS Temple and Falls. The staff here is great, so helpful with everything. Amy at front desk made a mean Potato soup at night. This is a great place to stay I would recommend it to everyone.

Very happy with our stay - have stayed there in the past and will stay there again. Great breakfast. Pet stay great and deposit minimal for pet. Friendly service and pretty setting right across from the falls and park

While it appears to be an older motor hotel, the Driftwood was an excellent place to stay. A nice room with a very comfortable bed and pillows. The staff was friednly and very helpful. Their cheery disposition added a bit of brigthness to a dreary (weather wise) day. The breakfast was ecleent with a number of nice choices. We lookforward to staying there again on our next trip through Idaho Falls. The only draw back was the weather. Would love to see this place in the Spring in order to view the falls and walk along the Snake River.

I stay in Idaho Falls once a month for business. I have stayed at numerous properties over the past few years, and was very excited to discover this Best Western last month. It is in a very convenient location, but slightly tucked away from the busier streets. I can't believe I never knew about it! Best place to stay in IF if you are on a budget. For just a few more dollars than the Super 8 or Guest House, it is well worth it. Well maintained property, friendly staff, beautiful rooms and delicious home-style breakfast, etc. This hotel is a find - I stayed one evening during a severe winter storm, and they even offered home made corn chowder when we checked in!
