I had been to Idaho Falls around 3 years back and had a terrible experience at the hotel we stayed. So, needless to say, I was very hesitant about booking a different hotel in the same city. Boy, was I wrong. This hotel was exceptional from beginning to end. I was greeted at the reception desk with a huge smile and welcome by both people at the reception. They were very clear in explaining everything the hotel had to offer and assured me that they would be available anytime. I walked to our room and was fortunate enough to get a first story room that had a huge window facing the Greentrail.
This allowed for some interesting people-watching experiences. The hotel is located directly across the street from Snake River and the Greentrail. There are a few restaurants (Try Lucy's Pizzeria for some great tasting New York style pizza) and bars within walking distance that make the location desirable. Although the hotel may be a little bit older, they did an excellent job in remodeling and updating the entire location.
The hotel offers FREE bike rentals to use along the Greentrail, they have a nice fitness room with a very large indoor jacuzzi that is adjacent to it. Although the pool is outdoors, they have the water set to a very comfortable temperature.
The breakfast is one of the best we've had from our very many road trip experiences. The homemade banana nut bread was delicious, as well as the made-to-order daily special of scrambled eggs over diced potatoes.
The beds were comfortable and the towels soft. Overall, this was an exceptional hotel experience, and the price was great! You have to stay here when in the area. less
