This is a Rodeway Inn but feels much nicer than a typical Rodeway. The rooms are HUGE and have two double beds, couch, fridge and microwave. The new walkway along the river is right out the door and great for an evening walk or run. Don't miss the Japanese Meditation Garden just a short walk south along the pathway from...

It's been a few decades since the heyday of this hotel, but the location can't be beat and the staff is super friendly. The outside is a little run down, but the rooms are fine, and even the hot tub was great. There's a great Mexican joint withing walking distance. I got a great rate on Booking dot com. And...

Stayed at the hotel for one night around July 4th weekend. First, the staff could not find my reservation by name. They didn't really seem interested in finding. I managed to locate the reservation email and at that point the lady at the desk said that they did not have any rooms of the type they had reserved. I.e. that...

We stayed at this hotel on our way home at Thanksgiving time. We had a later check-in as we had been on the road. The hotel was chosen due to location, pet friendly status and we got a great last minute room rate. Because it was so cold outside, we had to bring all of our travel luggage and extras...

This older hotel right across from the Falls is in very good condition. Our room was huge with 2 queen beds, a sectional sofa and still lots of space. It was very clean, great beds...not too hard, nice linens. The breakfast was pretty basic, waffles, cereal, toast and yogurts...no proteins. Overall we really liked this property for its good location,...

Old buildings, rude staff, terrible breakfast. No hospitality at all. No touch of luxury at all, if you compare with Hampton Inn or BestWestern. No need to compare with them at all because these hotel never dissatisfied me. I wanna cry. It's not worth it for what I pay. I would never stay if it's free.

I liked the room with 2 queen beds. Room was spacious and breakfast was ok. Pre packaged food, but worked for us. I would stay here again. They have 24hr hot tub. I was on the top floor and I had a good view facing the falls.

We changed our Best Western reservation to this hotel after seeing the huge, well appointed rooms. A room on the seventh floor with a balcony overlooking the falls was about $110 on a Monday night. They didn't seem to have many guests, and only one person at the front desk. It must have been one of the nicest hotels in...

I really love the location. Could not be a better view of the idaho falls. They do have balconies with great views but the building is octagon so not all suites will have a good view . The hot tub is 24 hours!!! Not to mention they allow pets. There are two complaints I have. One being we had 3...
