We only stayed for 1 night, but we loved everything about this hotel. The room was very nice, clean and the bed was comfy. The location was great, right across the street from the Snake River Greenbelt and the falls. We walked around the park area and to dinner. The lobby and the breakfast room was very nice. The food...

This hotel is one of my favorites. (Especially on the "River View" side. The rooms are always nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast they do is great...especially the omelets. It is nice and centrally located. The view is beautiful. It is right across the street from the river. There is a nice walking path there.

A comfortable place to stay and as close to the Snake River as you want. Nice river walk/run with a beautiful falls designed as part of the city's electric power generation system. Very roomy, we stayed in suite-like #74. If you're staying for a few days, this is the place to be. (It's also the place to be if you're...

This is a nice place to stay...it is an older property, but extremely well kept up...the rooms are of a nice size and are very clean. The shower is roomy, although it does have disappointing low water pressure. Pets are allowed for a fee, and there is wi-fi. Breakfast is at 7AM and when we were there they had a...

My wife and I had a great stay. The inn is on the river with a view of the falls. We went for a walk along the river before dinner. The hotel is being updated and has great rooms. The breakfast was one of the best I have had at a BW.

This Hotel is located right across from Idaho Falls and it was quiet, comfortable and the breakfast made the stay. Lots of food and the bonus was there was an Omelette Station. The breakfast was very tasty. The only negative is that there were two chairs in the room that were old and worn and had stains on the seat....

The rooms are clean, and modernized to exceed those of competing motel chains. The breakfast staff were friendly and went out of their way to satisfy your needs. The made-to-order omelets were an added touch.

This motel is right on the river walk. Appears to be somewhat older but in good condition with comfortable rooms. You can park just outside your room door. Includes breakfast with good selection. They even had a very nice lady in the restaurant making customer order eggs/omelets. Would stay here again.

We spent one night at the Best Western Idaho Falls. The location is across from the Falls and we had requested a falls view room. We were in an upstairs room facing the water but we couldn't see the falls. The room was very comfortable, altho the toilet didn't work very well. We were surprised with the offering at breakfast...

I usually have a high standard for rating a hotel but this time around, I was a single traveler and needed a hotel room fairly cheap but yet I expected it to be clean and comfortable. This hotel was just that. I had a comfortable bed, the room was clean but dated. The view from my balcony was one of...
