We loved our stay here! The managment was very experienced. He has managed hotels all over the world. Also his dog is super adorable. He had several different kinds of bread for breakfast from a local bakery, and fancy tea. The rooms were cute, quiet, and comfortable.

What a great motel! All the amenities of a chain motel at a fraction of the cost. Room is updated, clean and very comfortable. Rick is a great host/owner. Within walking distance of downtown Buhl and lots of good eating places. You are able to drive up and park right in front of your room so unpacking and repacking is a breeze. The rooms have fridges, microwaves and plenty of places to sit. We'll be back!!

I was on a 17 state motorcycle trip out west and I picked this motel because it was not a chain property. Before I left on my trip I had make reservations for 2 nights here and I reseached it on this site. This motel lived up to the good reviews it got. My room was very nice and cozy and clean. They also had what they called a small Trail breakfast in the morning in the motel office. The breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, toast, bagels, oatmeal and some danish. It was also a gathering place to talk with other people who stayed there. The motel was motorcycle friendly and let me park my motorcycle under cover by the office everynight I was there. Then my motorcycle broke down and I had to spent another night there. They were full for that night, but they let stay in one unit behind the motel that was still being remodeled. The room was still very nice on the inside, it just needed a paint job on the outside. Another nice about this motel is that restaurants were within walking distance, but most were all Mexican, sorry to say, but they had Angry Orchard cider on tap and that is my drink. The only negative thing for this motel was parking lot not paved.

+ Very good price quality relation! Super friendly welcome at reception, with extensive explanation on what to see in Twin falls and where to eat. Room is decent, clean with all as expected. Breakfast is very basic, but gets you on the road.
- Very much noise of the airco, also from the airco of neighbours and from the refrigerator. On the other hand, glad we had both!
Tip: Twin falls; go see the view on canyon with snake river and the shoshone falls. Eating at Elevation 486 should be very good!

Very clean, nice beds, Rick is a great host. We usually stay in the large national branded hotels, but took a chance based on what the trip adviser reviews indicated. The reviews were right on target and our stay was great, and the bonus is the price is excellent.

As others have said, the office staff is very welcoming. I also found the room nicer than expected, and actually kind of stylish. This is a clear winner for the money, although there's a very limited choice of eating in Buhl. It also has a nice little breakfast buffet in the office, which was surprising considering the cost. For sixty bucks I was satisfied. I like the rooms where you can back right to the door and unload tour gear.

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.
