“Great Location & Staff”
Reviewed November 13, 2004

I stayed at the Edgewater for 3 nights in October 2004. It has a great location on the lake and is walking distance to downtown. The staff are friendly and helpful. My room was in the annex, the construction shabby and the decor dated. (The door didn't match up to the frame so it rattled every time a neighbor's door shut.) Request a room in the main building. (I spied newer bathroom fixtures in a room on my way to the ice machine.) At times the train noise was startling, but I got used to it quickly. I had dinner in the restaurant one night: a great buffalo burger and dessert. Great location and staff, but nothing special about the hotel itself.

Although this hotel has a great location, right near the city beach park, it was a little run down and not very well appointed. Some of paint was flecked off of the strip of wood on the sink in the bathroom. The office where the breakfast is served is little without much room to sit. This motel does have a nice (but small) pool and jacuzzi tub. The front desk clerks were friendly and quickly responsive. So, it is a bit of a mixed bag.

The Edgewater is our family's top choice for our summer getaway. It is located adjacent to the City Beach Park and a small marina. Although it is a Best Western - not the Ritz, its location can't be beat. We prefer the ground floor rooms because our kids can walk in and out from the patio door to the beach and lawn. Also, the indoor pool and hot tub are on the ground floor, so our kids can migrate from the pool, to the room, to the beach.

The hotel offers a simple breakfast buffet each morning in the lobby, and there is a patio grill/bar overlooking the water. It is very close to town and everything is within walking distance. The train depot is a few hundred feet away, and trains run through Sandpoint every 20-30 minutes, so be prepared for train noise from anywhere in town. The rooms at the hotel all face toward the beach - away from the depot, so the train noise is less in the room.

Overall, it is a very relaxing, low-key vacation in the great little town of Sandpoint.
