From the first time you pull into Crouch, Idaho you notice that you are in a very unique place. A very short distance from Garden Valley but in out view a GREAT spot. The room was clean and had a good smell. Came with TV, microwave, coffee pot, wine bottle opener, refrigerator. All in a very cute cabin in this...

Set right in the middle of everything. The store and restaurants are within easy walking distance. I went for a run and the views were gorgeous,. People in town are very friendly and welcoming. One morning I saw about 50 elk grazing out in the fields and at least a dozen deer. Wildlife abounds. I hope that I can come...

My friend and I went to Crouch to explore the hiking trails and hot springs. What a great valley for this! Wander Inn Motel & Cabins was an ideal place to stay. The price couldn't be beat at $55/night. Sits right in the small town, right off the highway. Cute rustic cabins with with great hospitality by Maggie. She gave...

If you are looking to stay at the Hilton, Garden Valley probably isn't for you. If you want to get away for the weekend, do some shopping, and some good eating, head on up, you wont be disappointment. To start, the owner of the wander in was one of the nicest people I have met in a long time. She...

Maggie, the owner, is extremely nice and helpful with tips re: restaurants etc. We had 2 rooms, #4 & #5. Both had a very musty smell with the odor of urine (presumably dog) and smoke with the attempt to cover up by a perfume smell. The carpet in #5 was extremely stained and dirty. The carpet in #4 was a...

We loved our room, actually there were 2 rooms and we loved them both! Didn't get to spend a lot of time in the room because we went swimming, then out to dinner and a walk to the store. Maggie was a wonderful host and she's our first reason for a return engagement. Very clean rooms at an excellent rate....

Ok. We wanted a place to stay on our way from Ketchum/Sun Valley to McCall. Choice A&B were out. We were sent here...5 miles out of the way. Glad A&B were full! Rustic, basic, an easy walk to food and grocery. Two room 'cabin.' Fridge, roman tub, free long distance, AC, walk to restaurants, and $55 per night. A great...

Quaint but excellent value. Old mountain lodge feel. Quaint but clean. Heater/air conditioner unit worked great. No pool or fitness center, this is a mountain motel, not a resort.

Nothing else was available. Horrible smell. Everything in the room was broken or not working. We were afraid to bathe in the rust dripping tub or the filthy shower. The ceiling fan looked dangerous.

“Has potential to be a quaint, rustic place to stay, if the carpet gets pulled, wooden floors installed and upholstered couches replaced with wooden chairs.”
