While I have stayed in maaaany a hotel with better amenities through work, this motel wasn't just a place to put up. Heads up: simply put, the town of Soda Springs is not Hollywood quality so if you are accustomed to commuting, and your tastes require refinery, then stay in the nearby town Pocatella. Otherwise, at least drop in at the Caribou Lodge, they are very accommodating. Mind you, the beds were a tiny bit swayed on a bad back and the rooms were on the small side, but everything here is well cared for. I was impressed with the service, the wifi/cable/complimentary coffee for a $39/night room and the home-town smile from the owner when you asked for ridiculous things corporate America would scoff at. The sheets looked newer and the blankets were comfortable and soft, plenty of storage and your own private access to the parking lot as well as the inner corridor. Charming grass out back. Easy to find. Hours are 6am-10pm, although I think they still answer late if its imperative. If travels bring me back this way, I will stay here again, but next time with some flowers in hand for the kind couple who own it!
