Reviewed September 13, 2012

Warm and friendly from the front desk to the rooms. Genuine old fashioned attention provided by owners. Impeccably clean. Super biker friendly with cleaning supplies for motorcyclists. Try this small town motel for a simple and comfortable experience. I'll go the long way to experience a stay at this motel in the future!!! And you should too!!!

Room Tip: No tips necessary...Owners wrap their arms around you...

Sometimes it does feel like we're a bit off the beaten path. Montana Highway 200 through this scenic Clark Fork River Valley is little traveled compared to the rapidly busy Interstate 90. Every time I drive home from "the city" I'm always enthralled with the scenery and wildlife that surrounds us. The curvy road that follows the flow of the river and the steep rock formations of the valley walls can take your breath away. You know, we are tucked away - and you do have to go the long way round to enjoy this place. Boy are we glad you did! And we'll be happy to see you again - safe trails to you.

We had an awesome visit at the Falls Motel. It all started with the delightful owner Katrina. She was very welcoming and after a long day of driving (me in the car and my husband on his motorcycle) she made available buckets and microfiber cloths to clean the motorcycle. We were too tired but it was an awesome service that I wish now we had taken advantage of.
The driveway is paved so there is no problems for motorcycles. We had the king size room. It fit our needs. It included a new king bed, TV, phone and medium size refrigerator and coffee pot. It was clean and comfortable and came with a smile. You can't ask for more than that. Katrina also mentioned that there was a path just down the hill along the river for viewing the sunset. For those in town for a meal try Minnie's Cafe. The food is great.

My husband makes the long trip on Labor Day weekend every year for the 3 Flags Classic, Mexico to Canada. I don't think it will go through Thompson Falls next year since the route gets changed each year, but when the route does go through, he will definitely stay at the Falls Motel.

We love our motorcycle guests! We started offering bike washing supplies (buckets, microfiber cloths, and car wash soap) at the beginning of the summer in order to make life a bit easier on our motorcycle guests. If desired, you can do a quick clean up of your bike and then be free to enjoy the other amenities of the community. Ride safe, have too much fun and we'll see you again in the future!

We were on a long motorcycle ride, 2700 miles in a week. We travel a lot without plans or reservations so the Falls was a lucky find. The owners were awesome, providing dinner recommendations, sites to see on our trip (the Ross Cedar Grove and Kootenai Falls were excellent), offering of cleaning products for our bikes and they even picked up band aids for us when they went to grocery store so we wouldn't have to go to the store ourselves. Talk about service!

The owners were very friendly and have done a great job renovating the rooms. Like many other reviews said, it doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is really nice.

It's also a short walk to the Thompson Falls dams and power plants. Very scenic area.

You won't regret staying at this motel.

From the outside it looks like your average older road side hotel from the past. Once inside its a different story, the rooms have been upgraded and are very nice and clean. The young couple running it have put a lot of attention in to it and you can tell. I definitly will stay there again and recommend it to everyone.

It's true - when we bought the motel we decided to invest heavily on the inside - the space that really counts - the guest rooms. Down the road we want to do external improvements - but as a "mom and pop" it's one step at a time. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

After a review on Tripadvisor we booked a single king at the Falls Motel as a first night stop on a trip down From Calgary to Missoula. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner manager Katrina and boy she was delightful. Katrina told us about everything and even provided a bucket,soap and clothes to wash our motorcycle. She invited us to stay for the Critter Carnival Parade and market held at the west end of their property which they donate for the cause. We had a blast and met all kinds of interesting people. We had a super clean room with a comfortable king bed for under $80.00. Great find, we'll stay again some day.

Room Tip: Call Katrina directly to book a room.

We try to offer guests more than just a bed to sleep in - when you're visiting our community we want to help you really explore it - we'll share information from scenic areas to the best places to eat, drink and shop. During the summer months we sponsor a community market which is the best place for visitors to meet the locals. Thank you for choosing to stay with us! We hope to see you again.

The Falls Motel made for a most enjoyable stay in beautiful Thompson Falls. The Falls is a great reminder why it's important to get off the Interstates and really enjoy wonderful vacation experiences. The staff will ensure you have a pleasant stay and you can't lose in freshly remodeled and upgraded rooms. The owners will ensure you have a pleasant experience in TF. This was our first stay here but not our last!

Our first visit to Falls Motel was in May, 2011. Since that time, we have traveled to Thompson Falls at least 10 additional times. We always stay at the Falls Motel. The motel is being renovated so the rooms are fresh, clean and neat. I like that each room has a refrigerator and microwave as well as the standard coffee, tea and coffee maker. The staff is so accommodating. They offer great customer service. The location is also good . It is off the main road yet one can walk to the various restaurants and shops in Thompson Falls. I would recommend the Falls Motel.

Room Tip: The new suite is wonderful. It has a fireplace and a patio. Loved it! Other than the one time we...
