“Super Staff and Service”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

the building is 'dated' but very well maintained. I come often and if I am in the area I will make a special effort to stay here . Perfect trip time from our area to Yellowstone Park. Having a water feature as unique as you do also adds to the attraction.

We really appreciate your loyalty to our hotel. We also love our waterfall out front and even larger waterfall across the street. Being just a stones throw from Yellowstone is nice also. We hope to see you again soon!

This was a nice place to stay, some rooms recently updated, others are slowly getting there. The parking lot is VERY small however, so don't take your big truck in there! Breakfast was a delight and the ladies were great. It was nice to be right across from the river. I'd stay there again.

Arrival was easy and quick. Employees were friendly and very helpful. I had a problem with the electronic key, but the employee quickly walked with me back to the room to ensure it's success. It was a long walk and was threatening rain. Gotta say something about the view. Being a stones throw from the river and it's falls helps to relax. It's always my stay when passing through.

We sure enjoyed our stay at the Driftwood Inn in Idaho Falls. It is a fantastic location right across the street from the riverwalk, which we love to walk along. The breakfast is excellent, tasty, a good assortment, and well attended. The staff were helpful, pleasant, and courteous. Our room was delightful. Hope to return many times.

Great Stay at Best Western Plus Driftwood Inn. - The Driftwood Inn is located just a few steps across the road from the Idaho Falls Greenbelt Trail. The road is one lane each way, low speed. Mostly pedestrians. Traffic definately not a problem. - Entire facility is kept very clean. Exterior grounds were very well kept, with lots of plants and flowers everywhere. - Kingsize bed was very comfortable. Wifi and air conditioning worked just fine. Large flat-panel TV. Our room had the kingsize bed and kitchenette. Older-style appliances and cabinets were all well-kept in great condition and worked fine. Don't know if guests in adjacent rooms were noisy - we never heard them. - At our included breakfast we had fantastic omlettes that were made individually for each guest. No shortage of food, and lots of variety for breakfast. - Staff and other guests were all friendly and wonderful. Did not use the pool, or workout area, but other guests seemed to be enjoying themselves. - No elevator. Second floor rooms are accessed by exterior starway and wraparound walkway. Only a bit more effort for a bit more view if your room faces the park. - Usually, you can park close to your room, but stalls are not assigned. - Use Google Maps and street view to get a real sense of the location. Very tranquil. - I had stayed here before, and will stay here again.

This was a really nice place. Across the street from the Falls, nice walking path and park. An omelet bar and fresh banana bread! Seriously.
Oh yes, the beds and pillows were great. Nice and quiet. Some rooms have balconies , some single story.
