          Rooms were very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. Also, the location was right across the street from the Snake River and the waterfalls. It was beautiful!

          The Inn is directly across the road from the Snake River and a walking path is available for a stroll.. Parts of the Inn have a view of the Idaho Falls and also the LDS temple which is across the river. It is a short walk into town and to a number of restaurants in the area.

          The room was very nice and it was easily accessible and convenient.

          The parking arrangement is terrible, especially if one drives anything but a subconpact car.

          updated with very nice comfy touches location on the snake river was awesome however, complimentary breakfast food was sub standard and needs to go back to old fashion style of tasty food.

          qualiry of food is sub standard

          Comfortable beds and clean, newly remodeled rooms.

          Walking outside in the cold to get to the indoor hot tub (very nice) - it just happened to be a blustery, snowy day :)

          I loved the location, close to shopping and the freeway. It was very beautifully situated on the Snake River just across from the lds temple with a great view! I enjoyed the services it had such as free wi-fi, a very good continental breakfast, and when I didn't have my son's computer with me, I was able to use the computer in the lobby. I also liked having a little refrigerator and microwave in the room as well as the usual iron, ironing board, and hair dryer since I was traveling very light and couldn't bring a hair dryer with me. The personnel were also very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this Inn to anyone!

          The staff was terrific! It has a good breakfast. The room was very well appointed for the price and the location was excellent. One can walk to a myriad of bars and restaurants, and the city of Idaho Falls is beautiful. I was exceptionally pleased with my stay there. John Reed

          Easy to find, location to resturants, and easy to get into with suitcases

          Had somewhat of a musty smell in the room. We used a room deordorizer to get rid of it, and it was okay.

          Easy access from highway. Quite hotel, comfortable rooms. We have stayed at this hotel a number of times on our travels south. New omlet breakfast great. Walking distance to bistro, brew pub and other choices for dinner.For an older hotel they are doing a great job in keeping it updated.

          Beautiful setting, right across the river from the lds Temple, which was lit up and absolutely gorgeous, the falls in the river stretch a long way diagonally across the river and were frozen in places...fabulous.

          Older facility, not as clean as I would like, but for the price, it was good.

        • Family with children

          Location and price

          Service left alot to be desired. The hotel lacked cleanliness and convenience.
