“Delightful Surprise!”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

This was our first trip to Twin Falls -- the hotel was recommended by a local business. The motel exterior was typical -- but the rooms were well done, nice remodel and very clean. The biggest and best surprise was the level of service. Both the evening and morning front desk young ladies were absolutely great! The breakfast was unexpected yet good. Plus the price for the rooms were very competitive. The true test came when I realized I had left an item in the room. I called and with prompt response the item was mailed back to me -- delightful surprise! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. This owner and staff deserve high marks for service.

Room Tip: My room was closest to the road -- so had more noise than the ones toward the back.

This quaint little Inn provides a mid-century feel to moteling from the outside, and unique charm and comfort on the inside. The staff is amazingly friendly and the hot breakfast and coffee in the morning is an added bonus. The beds are super comfortable as well.

This Inn had been recommended to us by Camille at CSI. We were coming from Boise to see Spamalot and needed a place to stay. The staff was wonderful and we were treated like Royalty. My husband is extremely difficult to please and we ended up in the Suite in the rear. It was absolutely quiet and exquisitely decorated. We will stay there every time we are in Twin.

Great beds, awesome staff and wonderful rooms we will be staying here more for now on and I'm a hotel snob by the way. They accommodated all our family members and put us together on short notice. Went to breakfast downstairs and were greeted with a big smile and a warm welcome.

Wow, best hotel in Twin! Great if you're visiting or for a "stay-cation" or romantic night if you live in town. Our whole family was in town for a funeral and we were treated like royalty. This is were we will be staying every time we return to visit! Thanks Callie and Jim for an amazing addition to our hometown !

Me and my wife were very pleased with our stay. It truly began with the staff at the front desk, they greeted us right away with a warm smile and were extremely helpful. The facilities are all new and it has a high end look and feel to it, but the prices are very comparable to the larger chains. Our room was amazing! We stayed in the steam suite, which was tastefully furnished and AWESOME!!! The bed and bedding were second to none, it was the most comfortable sleep we have had in a long time! The steam unit was just what we needed after a long day of travel. If you have never used one, I absolutely suggest it! Last, but not least was the continental breakfast! The food they prepared was fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are very pleased that your stay 'inn-credible'! Steam suite has been a favorite by many! I agree with you, the steam shower seems to be perfect solution for relaxation after a stressful day of traveling! The sauna is amazing as well! You should try it the next time you stay! The mattresses are custom made specifically for the Blue Lakes Inn, we call it the Blue Lakes Inn Perfect Dreams Mattress! They are available for purchase! Thank you again! Safe Travels!

The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Room had a refrigerator, hair dryer, nice TV, heater lamp in the bathroom and individualized climate control.
King bed was very comfortable; rooms tastefully, newly decorated
Exercise room is not for the athlete--equipment is home-gym quality for the beginning exerciser, but it'll do in a pinch. Nice 2-person dry sauna!
The included breakfast was very good with more choices than I would have expected.
The outside doesn't look like much, but the inside of the motel is wonderful.

Thank you for giving us such a great review! I am so glad you enjoyed all our amenities! Our beds were actually custom made specifically for the Blue Lakes Inn! We do have beginner exercise equipment but are looking into updating it to more athletic, so hopefully when you get the chance to return you will be able to use more advanced equipment! I'm pleased to know that everything else was to you liking! Hope to see you back soon! :)
