This appears to be the best hotel in the Orofino area and for miles around there. It's located right on the Clearwater River, at the junction of a fast flowing creek. We stayed for one weekend night in a riverfront king room. The river is right below you in these rooms. They are fairly pricey, but it's definitely worth the extra cost. The room was spacious and well furnished, perhaps a notch below the typical Hampton or Hilton Garden room, but comfortable. The bathroom was the standard motel variety with a shower tub and typical amenities. The hotel is across the river from the main highway, so there was no road noise.
Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The free buffet restaurant was good. There is a small indoor pool. Orofino doesn't have many decent restaurants,but there is one right next door to the hotel, and also a good Mexican place right in downtown (we ate there, and it was very good).
The only issue we had was that the elevator was broken when we checked in. Since we were going to use the hotel's laundry facilities, we had to carry in all of our luggage, and lug it up to the top floor. But the elevator was fixed later on, and this wasn't a big issue for us. Overall, a good stay, and the riverfront location is a big plus. less
