Best Western Lodge At River's Edge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Views around this hotel are great. You can get a room with a river view. Lobby very nice and lodge type setting. The lodge reminds me of a fishing or hunting lodge. Breakfast in the morning is great. Hot and cold available. People very friendly.

Room Tip: If you like a river view you must ask for it and it is 10.00 more. But the views in back of the lodg...

We stayed one night in the Clearwater Suite. The room was HUGE; very clean. I had called at noon to see when the room would be ready, seeing that check-in was 4:00; we were in town early and really didn't have anything else to do. I was told 4:00, but when we stopped by at 2:30 they said it was ready and let us check in. The balcony looking out on the river was wonderful even on a rainy, dreary afternoon. I could see it being great anytime of the year. The fireplace was very nice too, though because of the living area being "sunken" you couldn't see the fireplace from the bed. The restaurant next door was good, a little over priced. I would recommend taking a short drive to The Woodlot in Ahsahka for the best burgers in the area. This was the only suite available for that evening, I problably would be just as happy with a smaller suite. The hot tub wouldn't be needed, and P.S. it had a white noise effect all night long.

We were very happy with the River's Edge. We chose it after spending a week in our camper and needed to stretch out a little. The staff was very attentive including offering to refrigerate my freshly caught steelhead and also encouraged me to fill up my cooler from their ice machine. The place was clean and sharp. Definitely would go back there again.

This is the best Best Western we have stayed at out of 66, 64 in the USA. A really professionally run and carefully maintained property. The room was large, comfortable and immaculate with a balcony overlooking the river. The table and chairs on the balcony were also clean, not something you generally see. We had a good sleep and the room was cool and quiet. The lady preparing the tasty breakfast was really helpful and kept everything filled up as well as finding time to top up coffees and have a pleasant word with everyone. All the staff were friendly and efficient and helped make it a very nice stay. We don't often stay in Idaho, the last time was at Grangeville, but I'm trying to plan a journey for the Fall next year that takes in a stay here again. The hotel is well situated for a drive along the Lochsa River as well as being on the Clearwater. The young lady on the front desk directed us to the nearby China Palace restaurant which was so good we had more on the second night. We will be back soon, I hope.

Room Tip: Go for the river view side, sit on the balcony and relax.

Great location backing onto river, rooms were updated and clean. Would recommend the river side rooms. The restaurant next door to the hotel has a heated patio over looking the river and the food was good staff were friendly. The girl working the front desk was very efficient and went out of her way to get us checked in and made sure we were happy with our rooms, we would stay at this location again in the future.

This was our first stay in Orofino, but definitely won't be our last because of the BW at River's Edge. We were driving thought the Lewis and Clark Highway on our way back to Seattle and their was lots of smoke in the Bitterroot Mountains, so we were pretty uncomfortable after 3 hours of driving through smoke when we arrived. The smoke seemed to subside just as we approached Orofino. The receptionist was very kind and efficient. Would have upgraded to the river side, but didn't notice the sign for the upgrade until later...eyes must have still been burning. Our room was 304 and it was very nice and comfortable. Being tired, we went next door (on the river) for dinner at The Edge. Highway 12 is across the river but not much sound from the road...the sound of the river was nice. Great to have such a great place for dinner right next door. The deck was fabulous along with the breakfast. Next time we will upgrade. (only $10 more for the river side).

Room Tip: Upgrade to the river side (only $10, when we were there). Highway 12 is across the Clearwater river...

Beautiful place in a beautiful location. Used the hot tub, the laundry facilities, breakfast. Great room. Great views all around. Would definitely stay here again if I were ever in Orofino, Idaho again. Service was great too.

Room Tip: From what I understand, the rooms on the river are about $10 more. Definitely worth the price.
