“Wow, Surprisingly Nice!!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

This motel took me by surprise, honestly I didn't expect much for how inexpensive it was. Manager was very nice and helpful. Rooms were very clean, had an updated and fresh feel to them and the bathroom had more than enough room. All the rooms had parking right in front of the room, as a motorcyclist that is a very atractive option security wise. Friend missplaced his key in his luggage, when he found it he just called the manager up who said just drop it in any mailbox and it will get back to him. We drove out of our way to stay here, but will most likely plan to come through here next time to stay here.

The Oregon Trail was the first stop on our cross-country trip from Washington State to Washington, D.C. We arrived late, after a long day of driving. The office was closed, but the manager appeared in a minute or two after dialing the provided number. After a smooth, super-quick check-in, we settled into a clean, attractive, comfortable room for the night. The bed was cozy, with quality linens. The shower provided great water pressure and nice, long-lasting hot water. The room was quiet--we slept like babies. I'm not sure if I've ever had this much value in an affordably-priced motel.

For a motel this inexpensive, I did not have high expectations. Boy was I wrong! The motel is super clean, cute and comfortable!! The rooms are WAY more spacious than they look on the outside. The owner is amazingly friendly, and there is even a complimentary breakfast in the hotel office (we ate in our room since the office is small) Included in the breakfast was bottled water and bottled orange juice. SO happy we stayed here. The owner had a crib (a real crib, not a cheap pack-n-play) set up for us in our room when we arrived for our toddler. Highly recommended!!

S. Melansons - New Brunswick, Canada: I booked this motel after liking the website for the motel & reading excellent reviews from others who stayed there. After flight complications to get to Boise from Toronto Canada via San Francisco, we finally arrived in Buhl at the Oregon Trail Motel where we stayed July 7th-8th, 2013. The owner Rick was extremely helpful, friendly, funny and outgoing. Rick provided great information on the surrounding area and sites I had mapped out to visit. His motel mascot and pet, Wilson, is totally adorable.....loved Wilson. This motel had a very personal touch and made you feel very much at home. Our motel room was spacious, very clean, bed & linen very comfortable. We had a great healthy light breakfast each morning with local breads, yogurt, juice, coffee which was delicious and greatly appreciated. I would 100% stay at the Oregon Trail Motel again if ever travelling in the area again and highly recommend this motel to anyone booking accommodations in the area.

We saw the great reviews and decided to get off the interstate. The backroad trip was beautiful. The Inn is unassuming, but the most welcoming of all the hotels we stayed at on our trip. Rick, the owner/innkeeper, is very personable. His bulldog, Wilson, is the official welcoming committee. The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are awesome and soooo comfortable, we didn't want to get up. There was even great breakfast food and conversation. Definitely not your hotel box experience. It was well worth traveling off the fast track.

Made a reservation at the Oregon Trail Motel. Rick, Wilson, and his staff, are to be commended for the cleanliness and comfort of this little motel. The day we stopped the outside temperature was 102 degrees, the room A/C worked excellent, keeping the room quite cool and comfortable. The Queen bed was comfortable with fresh new linens, fluffy towels in the bath, new carpets on the floor, quiet from traffic noise, many nice extras. The motel is located just minutes from downtown Twin Falls . I have stayed in many big chain motels and have never seen this type of service or cleanliness that is offered here. Rick takes pride in his business and it shows as soon as you walk into the office. We will definitely return . Thank you again Rick !

The Oregon Trail Motel is a gem (in the Gem State, no less)! My room was clean, comfortable and well furnished. Breakfast the next morning was a treat with excellent coffee and a delicious muffin. The owner, Mike, is very personable and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again.
