Looks like the place is getting updated! Nice and clean rooms! Clean sheets, new beds and new furniture. Friendly staff! Decent Breakfast and a good diner across the street! We had a good time and will be back!!

I can tell you that previous reviews had me terrified. I booked this place before I read the reviews and couldn't cancel (booked after the cancellation time). On that note, I will start off by saying that the place is definitely in need of updating which they are in the process of doing which explains some of the mess including...

The Pros: The Staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent diner across the street. Allows pets with deposit (non refundable) The Cons: This hotel is nowhere near a 2 star hotel. This hotel is old, not updated at all and maintenance is long overdue. The carpet in our room had holes in it, which makes it a tripping hazard. Room reeked...

Folks.....sleep in your car before staying here. I don't like to leave bad reviews but this is going to be bad!! If I could give it a negative 1....I would. This was listed as a "2 Star" on Hotwire. I contacted Hotwire with concerns after getting this place blindly. They told me "don't worry. Not everyone leaves good reviews....maybe it...

We stopped here because we had been driving all day and it was the first hotel we saw on the way into Idaho falls. We found all of the complaints I named in my review. It looks like they are doing work on the place- construction supplies stacked outside the hotel. But until the renovations are done, do not stay...

This is a warning to those who waste the drive across town to check it out because it was listed as the cheapest rate in town. I asked the front desk if the area is "Sketchy" and she responded "I grew up in this neighborhood, do I look sketchy?" I didn't respond, but the answer is yes. Everything from the...

We booked here last minute because nothing else in the area was available and we needed a place to crash after driving all day (still had 5+hours left on our drive home and drivers were getting drowsy). Not only does it look frozen in time (and not in a charming way), but our room smelled absolutely horrible! Very strong of...

Seriously, don't stay here. You would be better off sleeping in your car. The front desk people were nice, but that's it. The room was so nasty we almost left. We walked in and the first thing we saw was a bug on the wall, which...ok...it happens that's not a deal breaker... but then we got to looking closer. The...

Older motel with appearance issues, but clean with friendly, helpful staff. Ok for overnight stay if you are traveling on a budget. Rooms are in need of updating. A/C had fan bearing noise and did not cool well. Not an attractive neighborhood.
