Really enjoyed our stay! Was only going to stay one night, and wound up staying three. The beds were comfortable, the water was hot, and the breakfast was good. I enjoyed visiting with the front desk staff. Tina was friendly and helpful. If your looking for a Hilton, this ain't it, but if you want a great little hotel, in...

Didn't know what to expect in Kamiah, ID, but the Clearwater 12 Motel is a super value. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They serve a great breakfast. Loacated near the Salmon River and hiway 12 it's also very quiet. Staff are friendly and helpful as well.

Came into the little town of Kamiah after riding the canyon all day. What a delightful find. Greeted by Judie ( I believe was the owner) just a pleasure. They had a king size room ready for us. They even had towels to wipe down our bike after a long day! The hotel is dated on the outside for sure...

Big rooms, comfy beds, very clean and quite modern plus friendly front staff. One of the better motels for this price range across the country. A little bit of a walk from town, maybe 500 meters otherwise a short ride if on your bike. Recommend this place

Room was clean and comfortable,Staff was friendly. I got to their breakfast just before it closed and there was not much left, The Mgr made me a couple eggs and sausage in the microwave, not great but it was something, Overall no complaints, The Hub bar was the only food in town, was actually pretty good, would recommend it.

This motel is amazing! I would give it more than 5 stars if that were possible!! The room was at least 1 1/2 times the size of a standard motel room and immaculately clean. It had a refrigerator, a microwave, a full closet, a TV, a table and chairs in the room and out on the veranda, and a sink...

Very pleasantly surprised at the value. Beds were comfortable, quiet, spacious, full breakfast, and you even get a discount at The Hub restaurant if you show the room key. Wifi was strong but did cut out periodically so that is the reason for 1 less star. Definitely would stay here again.
