This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The owners Art & Shelly treat you like family. The room was homey and clean! It is perfectly located downtown so you can walk to everything you need. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in a nostalgic and relaxing stay. Not one bad word...

I can't say much more than everyone else has said. Its pleasantly quiet inside the rooms despite it being on the "main drag" through Coeur d'Alene. There are lots of little extras, like being able to check out a DVD. It is very close to the water front and lots of eateries and shops. The owners and staff are fantastic....

We loved this place. I even tried the 'magic fingers' on the bed, it brought me back to the late 60's. The location was perfect and even though it is located on a busy street, the noise was minimal. The room was spacious enough and the bathroom was modern. I'm glad that there are still motels like this around for...

Trust Trip Advisor reviews. This fifties style motel is a nice place to stay with more than reasonable rates. I am about 65 years old, and I had no problem walking from my room to downtown and the waterfront. The owners are very sincere and extremely helpful with directions and suggestions for eateries, entertainment, etc. My room was impeccably clean....

Found this funky hotel on Trip Advisor. The rooms are themed and might be a little over the top but so fun. The hotel is in a perfect location walking distance to the beautiful park, lake, and downtown. We expected the room might be noisy as it is close to main drag, but it was perfectly quiet. Rooms are very...

Excellent hotel and value. Mom and Pop style business with classic customer service. Comfy themed guest rooms with a retro route 66 type feel. Perfect walking distance to downtown. Have stayed here several times and will definitely come back.

We had eyeballed this on the internet as a potential place to stay on our North West Road trip, en-route from Seattle to Glacier National Park. On arrival we found the hotel easily on the main street up from the lake; the owner was friendly and offered us our choice of the rooms available. The rooms are all themed, in...

Turned up on the fly & stayed in Cowboy room. Everything about the room was excellent & easily the most comfortable beds on our entire adventure. Worth saving quarters for the magic fingers experience. Even the carpet was comfortable! Would definitely stay here again.

Super friendly - helpful - more like a bnb than a motel. Wide variety of room types and great location. We asked lots of questions and owner ready with great recommendations for restaurants hiking and marina. Definitely the place to stay in coeur dalene

Love this place very friendly, Art is a kick. The place is very clean well suited and very close to everything near the lake. Park your car and just walk everywhere. A must visit place, and the magic finders are cool too. Can't wait to go again in Sept.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like a B&B without the breakfast, all rooms have been remodeled with uniquely different themes. Eight one bed, three two beds & two are 2-bedroom suites (one with a full kitchen). Rooms are all street level with parking in front of each room. Situated within the seven blocks of "old downtown" Coeur d'Alene beside the Lake, all beaches, restaurants & art galleries are within walking and the street fairs, parades, marathons and classic car shows start right out front. ... more   less
