There wasn't a lot of choice in Kooskia, only one in fact. This place is old and worn, but it was comfortable and quiet. We got the Ida Lee room, it was decorated on a fisher theme, partial kitchen, small tv, we tried to watch a movie but the satellite feed kept cutting out. There was wifi if you stood...

I'm happy that you had a nice stay with us. Please come back a fish one of our amazing rivers for salmon, trout or steelhead.

So I read a lot bad things about the Western Motor Inn so I almost didn't stay here. I'm doing a cross country bike ride and Kooskia was the ideal stopping point. Our room was spacious and clean. The carpet was new. There were a few "idiosyncrasies" but I won't mention them. Perhaps the best $66 we've made all trip....

This place is a dump. The bedspreads haven't been washed for several presidencies, the carpet could be a science experiment and the rest is worse! I had to stay here but please, please sleep in your car or get a tent. Anything but this joint.

Beautiful room, beautiful motel and really friendly people. An oasis! The furniture is traditional and retro, my room was clean and tidy and it was very pleasant to sit on the benches at the front of the motel. The bed was big and comfortable. Internet access was good and the TV had lots of channels.

I stayed here for a week of spring steelhead fishing. After a ten hour drive we are told at check in that we were only reserved for one night. After we pointed out our name on his reservation book, he figured that one out. My parents had made reservations to join us midweek (made reservations TWICE because the manager had...

My wife and I are traveling some of America's backroads on our Harley and finding some interesting places. This small motel was a bit rustic but provided us a place to stay and to get some rest. Our room was decorated nicely and had what we needed. It wasn't a Holiday Inn but we enjoyed our stay and the owner/manager...

We had stayed here a few years ago and it was run-down then, but the family seemed to be working to make a go of it, and the room was clean but shabby. This time the whole place seemed to be really struggling, rooms were even shabbier, no working WiFi. We had to ask for clean towels and TP the...

I stopped here on a three-week motorcycle trip. My wife was very tired from riding so we pulled in and booked a room. From the outside it looked to be OK place to stay. Once in the room I came to realize it was not even close to average and needed to be updated. The price was very cheap. In...
