I have stayed here many times as I have investments in Idaho Falls. Their rooms are quite reasonable but putting breakfast on at 7 am in spring and summer is silly. People travelling want to get moving early and not waste daylight. I suppose it's a way to save on food. I stay at motels all through Montana for work...

A family owned, very reasonable priced, super clean, quiet place to stay. There are many units but parking is ample. After a mix-up w/ room & keys, we received profuse apologies and an upgrade to a room w/ a 2 person whirlpool tub and separate shower. Plenty of towels, complimentary toiletries, WiFi, flat screen TV, a pool & onsite BBQ...

It looks like there may be at least three different 'builds' for this motel. We stayed in what appeared to be older units on the Northwest end. The single king bed room we stayed in was larger than some we've stayed at, it was clean, and being back from the main road it was quite. The continental breakfast was not...

My brother and I crashed here for one night en route home from a ski / road trip. Right off the highway, with the waterfalls less than 5 minutes down the road, the location of this motel was great. Like other reviewers have said, Motel West is budget accommodation but they ensured that all the basics are covered and the...

Stayed here one night on a business trip. I was a bit confused about how highly they were rated and the low price shown on TripAdvisor. I booked the room and was pleasantly surprised. Very nice reception upon arrival. Staff was welcoming and friendly. I had a room in the remodeled section of the motel. Very clean and quiet. TV...

We stayed here to visit Grand Teton National Park and found this to be an average motel. Room was large, clean and quiet at night. The bed was rather soft, but we slept well anyway. However, even though this is a non-smoking motel, the room smelled badly of old smoke. This distracted from the otherwise fine room. Breakfast was bigger...

I have only great things to say about this place. It has no frills but seems to have all the amenities. This is your basic 1970's dated motel but all is super. Clean, clean, clean! Great TV and cable that are easy to use. Microwave, mini-fridge, spacious (crib fit in room with space to spare), internet easy to connect, large...

The room was clean and spacious with good furnishings and a comfortable bed. It had all the amenities such as hair dryer and shampoo. The TV was good. Wi-Fi seemed a bit slow. The staff were really friendly. It has a large breakfast room with decent complimentary breakfast options - nothing fancy but does the trick. The motel has a...

Basic but Clean & comfortable. Our shower didn't work & when we reported it they offered to let us go into another room. Breakfast selection was small but we had enough to get us going. Would consider staying again if we are in the area.

My husband and I visited the West Yellowstone area for work last weekend (we're musicians) and decided to stay in Idaho Falls on Thursday to get a jump on the drive since we're not spring chickens anymore LOL Since we were only staying for a quick overnight, saving money was priority #1. When the motel we usually stay at wanted...
