Best Western Driftwood Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is the old school traveler's motel for someone that needs a good room, bed, & free breakfast in a good location. We needed a one-nite's stay as were driving from SLC to Yellowstone and this place was ideal. Nice location across the street from the falls and a short walk to good restaurants. Highly recommended & definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: Walk across the street to view river & falls.

On driving back from Scottsdale to Calgary, I booked the Driftwood Inn. It is located right on the falls in the center of town. Room was a good size and very clean. Check in was smooth. I would stay for sure at this property again if I am ever back in Idaho Falls.

Sort of left it late leaving Yellowstone, so just put Idaho Falls city centre in the gps(sat-nav). It was quite quiet late in the evening in the centre and we spotted a Best Western so just drove up to it. Looked a bit unusual from the outside in the dark. Got one of the last rooms. Price was great. Then drove into a motel style courtyard and parked up. Looked like a run of the mill motel room...until we opened the door. A really nice kitchenette with big fridge, modern table and chairs and nice stone flooring with a flatscreen TV on the wall. Wow! Bedroom was at the back with a second TV. Bathroom had the same stone tiling and the seemingly brand new modern shower had a glass door. Very impressive. The vanity was outside the bathroom as is common for motel rooms. In the morning found out that the falls were less than 30 seconds walk from the door! Breakfast was great with a custom egg/omelette cooking service by a really friendly young woman. Neat! and very delicious. The view from the breakfast room was impressive too - a nice view of the river. Front desk staff were really friendly and helpful. Going back outside to the falls and looking back the hotel looked completely different in the daylight. Clearly many rooms have views of the river and falls, and the hotel looks just fine in the daylight! Not sure how many rooms are to the same standard or size as we had (room 74) so check before you book. Outside is the river and falls and a nice walkway alongside the river with ducks and geese to feed/watch - I had a very relaxing sunday morning walk. I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with river views.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. Chocolate chip cookies provided a wlecoming extra. The location of this site was excellent - directly across the street from the greenbelt running along the falls. The room had a fabulous shower with granite flooring and shower heads overhead and from the side. Bed was very comfortable. A very comfortable, and pretty room.

Happy we stopped by this motor inn! During a total of 31 days driving on the road and staying at motels this was easily the best! lots of facilities, great price, nice location and very comfortable rooms. We were greeted by very friendly reception staff upon arrival and in the morning breakfast was more than enough. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Top floor gives you a better view of the lake across the road.

We had a death in the family and were at the hotel for two weeks. The staff was so kind and thoughtful. They treated us like we were their family. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Their hot complimentary breakfast is one of the best I have had. I am employed full time as a Flight Attendant and I rarely stay in hotels that were as comfortable and hospitable as this one. Its location is beautiful and scenic right on the Snake River across from the falls. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will always stay there when we return to Idaho Falls.
