Booked my room a week in advance. Showed up to get my room, no one was in the office. Doors were locked. No notes on the window. I called and no one answered phones. TWO hours later they finally showed up. And claimed to be in a " business meeting" when they had obviously went to lunch with our any...

We were in town for a hockey tournament. The weather was very cold which has some effect but does not explain all of the issues. The sheets were stained with what looks like grease. The freezer was not very cool. The heat took almost 2 days to get warm. The hot water did not work. The outside temp was -27...

This place has a pool and hot tub in harsh need of cleaning. "STUFF" floating in both. The room was OK. No shampoo, soap, or coffee in the room. The shower never got hot, or even lukewarm. Shower curtain is covered in orange mold. Bedding seemed clean tho.

Stayed here for a night, very disappointed. Cute rooms. But very thin walls, there wasn't any bar soap and the container that they put shampoo and conditioner in was empty. There was holes in the wall, the sheets looked as if they hadn't been changed. There was hair all over them. And the little couch in the room was nasty....

There's typically a reason why one hotel/motel is the last to be fully occupied. Driving through Idaho without an itinerary and wanted to stay in Salmon after a long day of driving. Every hotel was fully booked for about an 80 mile radius except this one, so against my better judgment I checked in for a night. Not sure where...

This motel was a good room for the price. The owner was friendly and helpful. The beds were a little hard but still slept fine. plenty of parking and walking distance to restaurants. Rooms a little noisy but fine.

I would give this place 5 stars just for the air conditioner. The room was clean. The air conditioner was awesome. I have stayed in many motels where the a/c did not work well. They are pet friendly. There were a lot of motorcycles there but the noise did not bother me. Nothing fancy but fine for a night's stay.

$70 something dollars a night. That's cool. The older grandma checking us in was a pure delight! The pool was outstanding! Everything else was AWFUL! Internet, yeah, just try to use it. The sheets were not washed! I'll post pictures of the hairs and "fuzzies" left by previous guests. Just 100% gross. The carpet was disgusting. The walls are paper...

“Upstairs is perhaps a better option and the first floor, but it's up a flight of outdoor stairs, no elevator.”

“We stayed all the way to the south end in the 200 range, great view of the mountains from any of the rooms, most hotels here don't have views like this one does.”
