Room needs serious updating - shabby carpeting, slimy bathrooms, grotty bed covers. Only good thing about this place is the proximity to schweitzer ski resort. The breakfast was pathetic - while it had the usual fixings, the set-up was sloppy. I had to go looking in the cabinets for plates since no one bothered to replace them since they ran out. Would rather stay in the super 8 in coeur d'alene and deal with a longer drive to the ski slopes. Or try one of the many other motels in sandpoint.

I was devastated to read your comments and know that you didn't enjoy your stay. It is our goal to give 110% in service and attitude. Great news - the hotel has changed names to the GuestHouse Lodge (formerly The Super 8) and is receiving an entire facelift including: log pine furniture, duvet covers, flat screen TVs and frig/mico's in all rooms. We invite you back to see our new renovations and experience the true meaning of hospitality.

we stayed at the super 8 once again and must say it is still top notch and an excellent value. The staff is great and very nice. They truly care about your business or reason for being there. If you need any special items thye are happy to accomodate you. There is a hot tub that is nice for sore muscles after a day on the mountain. All in all a great place for the money!

If you are looking for a great place on a budget in the Sandpoint, ID area then this is it! The rooms are clean and neat. The staff if very kind and willing to help with any needs you may have. The rates are very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area and the location is great whether you are heading to the mountain for seasonal activity or looking to spend an afternoon on the lake. They offer free wi-fi and a hot waffle breakfast with all the fixings. They also have an indoor hot tub which makes for a nice touch to a relaxing evening or early morning soak. There are also several places to eat and shop within walking distance. Check out Slates for a great dinner. Look no further, this is the best value in the area!

I booked this motel online because the price was right and I couldn't believe that this place was as bad as some of the reviews. It was even worse. The (non-smoking) room smelled like it had been smoked in all night and the sheets didn't feel clean. Good thing that we brought our own blankets so we didn't need to use their's. Don't get too excited about the hot tub, either. It was filthy. I'll pay more, next time and stay somewhere else.

We came very late to the hotel, so we got the best price. The room was wonderful, breakfast excellent, free internet. If you don´t mind the noice of Amtrak, you are in a good place.
