We stopped in late and were a bit disappointed in how dirty the halls and carpet in our room were. Found a cockroach by the window in the morning (or we would have left), overall disappointed. Breakfast in morning was ok but typical.

Very comfortable and clean. Situated near to restaurants and the Museum of Clean, as well as the university. Its claim to be the friendliest hotel in Idaho made me wonder about customer service in Idaho.

For the price it was acceptable. The location was good and the staff friendly. Being pet-friendly you'd think they would vacuum the hallways more frequently, or maybe they just had a particularly hairy guest the night I stayed. The only weird thing: Our room seemed to be clean but it smelled like a mexican restaraunt in there! I swear, we...

Booked months ahead. Requested a first floor room, called 5 days ahead to confirm and was rudely told no to the 1st floor room for a person with serious oxygen issues. The stairway was filthy. The carpet in the room was badly stained. One of the worse Choice Hotels we ever stayed at.(we travel a lot.)

Stayed two nights at this motel across the street from Idaho State University and near the Clean Museum. Breakfast was above average for a budget motel. Asked the desk clerk for a recommendation for dinner and he suggested Elmer's next door which had good service and food at a budget price. Staff was friendly and everything worked well.

The folks at the front desk are very kind, nice, and helpful. That is where the good of this place ends. The room itself brings me back to when I lived in he ghettos of Seoul, South Korea. Staying at this hotel is what I imagine living in a garbage can to be like. It is old, run down, and...

Not sure where everyone was - owner, manager, management company execs, cleaners, maintenance personnel - someone should send out a bulk missing person(s) report. Disappointing for a Choice Hotel for sure; we recommend they leave vacuum cleaners and various cleaning products in the room along with soap and shampoo and we would have left it in better shape. Best thing...

We were driving down I 15, it was getting late and we got tired. Found this place as the only affordable option left when checking travel websites. Might have booked the last available room. So, you take what you get... This hotel has seen better days that's all I can say. It was ok for a few hours rest

Was really looking for something to recommend this place, as every lodging is someone's livelihood, but as a reviewer and travel writer, it's necessary to give an honest appraisal, and this is just honestly a bad stay. The bed is old and rickety, and the bedcover had food stuck to it on check-in. Surfaces we stained and some sticky. The...

I booked this hotel for a business trip in Pocatello, since we had multiple rooms, budget didn’t allow for the higher-end stays. Also, all the hotels in the area were booked due to sporting events championships. The location is right across from the university, so I thought conditions wouldn’t be so bad The building is very old and in need...
