Wonderful location and great people running the place. Unfortunately, the motels is old, the rooms are musty, moldy or mil dewy smelling. The pillows are a joke, thinner than a USA Today newspaper. The shower was inadequate in terms of shower head height and cleanliness. The air conditioner works but is very noisy and they must get their TV's from... More

That's about it. My original room had a gnat infestation so I was moved to another room that smelled like moth balls and a floor that hadn't been cleaned since FDR visited the dam. Besides all that this motel is located right across the street from the dam with very nice views, especially of the laser light show. There is... More

If you need to stay in Coulee Dam there is very little choice. Some of the reviews of this hotel are not great but I stay in lots of hotels and the staff here are some of the best you will find. I had room 233 with a kitchen and the price even in June was very low and I... More

Entering into the room, it had a horrible smell. I looked at the bed and there was a huge stain on the bedspread. Unsure if it was clean or not. The pillowcases had hair and other stains. Looks like the bed was not changed just made up. Immediately, I went to the office and informed the clerk of the hair... More

This hotel is dated. I questioned whether or not it was clean enough to take a shower. But, I didn't have to decide as we weren't able to get any hot water at all. It is so overpriced My husband wanted to see the dam. This hotel is close to the dam. That is all it has going for it.... More

Stayed there with group for one night in July for light show. Light show was a disaster as was told the following morning that the water has to be flowing over dam for light show to really show up. But the worst part was the small roach in the bathroom. I would not stay there again. Make plans to move... More

Like most mom and pop motels it"s a little rough around the edges, but comfortable enough. There really isn't much in the surrounding area, but the best place from which to watch the Coulee Dam laser light show is from the balcony or from the small park across the road. Some rooms offer views of the dam so the show... More

Yes, this is an older hotel that hasn't been widely updated in awhile. But I will agree with other reviews that it is clean and fairly comfortable. The bed was very nice as were the chairs in my room. There is a small pool that seemed to be quite popular with children and families. The view of Grand Coulee Dam... More

Rooms are very outdated, however were nice and clean. We stayed in a large suite with kitchen. Entire suite had vinyl flooring. Pillows were very flat, so I had to use an extra one from the closet. Decent mattress. Vanity light in bathroom had only 1 bulb out of 4 working. Coffee pot carafe did not fit the pot so... More

It's definitely an older motel, but was very clean. Bed was comfortable and there was a view of the dam from our balcony. The dam was just across the street, and there are restaurants nearby. Also the casino is right across the street too!
