I run logistics for an annual conference with an average attendance of 1100. Needless to say, this about fills every hotel room in town for that week. I have had a contract for a block of guest rooms for my speakers and staff for the last four years at the Ameritel Inn in Pocatello, ID. They are absolutely marvelous to work with. They do extra things like putting parking passes in individuals' check-in material, letting me hold an unassigned room for a day in case of emergencies, giving us a very nice price on our block of rooms, assigning a suite as my room so that I can have meetings,etc. The speakers and staff that I house in this facility really appreciate being able to have a GOOD breakfast by 6:00 am, the clean, quiet rooms and a free shuttle for the airport. I also appreciate that they are very business-like and calm as we deal with the various issues that can arise when dealing with something on this scale.
Kudos to Shauna, James and their entire staff.
Thank you!!!!!

This hotel is an excellent place to stay. We book with them every year for our annual Idaho Potato Conference and have always been treated very well. The customer service is some of the best, the rooms are neat and clean, and the breakfast is awesome. I always know that I will be treated very well when I stay at this particular facility.

This hotel is quite worn, old carpet, dinged furniture. But it is very clean, the rooms are adequate, and the breakfast is fresh and good. The great story here is the people hired by management. They are very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again when I am in Pocatello on business just because of the great experience I had with the staff.

What could have been a pleasant stay in a nice facility was ruined by the front desk staff. Our event was later in the day and we requested a late check out. We were told with an emphatic no and that we could pay for half a day if we so choose to do so. I only needed two hours, but I guess customer service is not important to them. Weak service..

Dear Daren W,
Thank you for staying with us at the AmeriTel Inn and for sharing your experience. I'm delighted to hear that you felt we have a nice facility and that that portion of your visit was pleasant. On the other hand, I'm sorry that our staff was curt with you when you asked for a late check out. Normally, that is something that we can accomodate and a few hours would not have been a problem, generally speaking. There may have been outside circumstances keeping us from doing so, and if that was the case, my staff should have taken the time to explain that to you. I will make sure to discuss this with my staff so that no one else has a similar situation arise. Again, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our facility and would like to apologize for the unpleasant encounter you had. We hope you decide to give us another shot so we can show you have we truly operate, and look forward to seeing you if you do.

This is a polite and lovely hotel next door to Sandpiper, a great eatery and is also close to the airport and shopping. The pool is huge and great for swimming laps or just hopping in the hot tub.I enjoyed the free wifi and new flat screen TVs. Morning breakfast is homey and delightful. It could add a few bells and whistles like tea bags in the lobby area and in guest rooms. Otherwise, you will sleep well and have fun at this Pocatello hotel.

Room Tip: First floor opens up to the pool, lobby and Sandpiper next door..

Have stayed in AmeriTel before and loved the experience. The staff was exceptional from the call to make reservation through check out. We had a couple special requests and they were very accommodating. We appreciate the kindness and when coming back to this area we will choose AmeriTel. We were all pleased with the breakfast, it had sausage and eggs, and all of the other standard continental items. And the cookies in the evening really hit the spot! The pool was very cold and the hot tub very hot. Just some areas I could see room for improvement: Pool it very cold, and carpet looks very warn in some areas of the hallways. Great place to stay, would go back.

Dear 768Jason,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the AmeriTel Inn. I'm sorry to hear that our pool was a little cold for your tastes, generally we try and keep it heated so it is a pleasure to swim in. We will monitor that more closely for other guests, thanks for bringing that to our attention. Other than that, I am very pleased to hear that my staff treated you well and that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

This was the first time we stayed here and we were happy. The person at the front desk had us checked in within about two minutes and was very nice and friendly. The room was very clean, and the water pressure was great! Be careful though as the bathtubs are a little slippery. The pillows were a little uncomfortable, so if you are able to, I would recommend bringing your own.

The breakfast spread is great with waffles, eggs, and many other things. There is a guest laundry facility in case you are staying a while, and the pool looked nice. Your room key can be used at a few of the local restaurants as a discount card, and you can get 10-15% off of your bill.

The hotel itself is very easy to find off of the I-15 and is surrounded by gas stations, restaurants, and just about anything else you need. We had a nice time and will stay again in the future..
