Best Western Driftwood Inn
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Idaho Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

The hotel is well situated just in front of the Idaho Falls. Rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable and the staff is good. The breakfast is good. The stay was good and I will come again if I need an hotel in this region. So, no problem with this hotel that I can recommend.

This is a lovely, less-than-new but very well-kept motel, right next to the Snake River and Falls in downtown Idaho Falls. Of the five different places where we stayed on our trip, this was the most mobility-friendly for me and my four-wheel walker. It was not handicapped accessible by any means, as most "handicapped rooms" in motels are not, but it was the first place where the bathroom door was wide enough for my walker. Given the lovely staff, I would stay here again at need. The price was quite reasonable, too.

Nice location, but rooms look like they were remodel out of the 60's. Young staff at check-in looked like they wanted to be out of the 60"s. Things just looked old. Rooms were clean. Problems with the TV and remote. Great breakfast w/omelets and fresh baked goodies.

This hotel overlooks the falls. If you are lucky enough to get one of the nice suites with the flower boxes, you can leave your sliding glass door open to listen to the falls. There is a nice walking path just across the street. They were super nice to us and my daughter's service dog by placing us in one of those suites to give the dog some extra room. The bathrooms have sinks in the bathroom and just outside the door. Lots of towels. The breakfast including fresh scrambled eggs or omelets.

We needed one night stopover while on our trip. This was a nice place, quiet, and friendly staff. Our room was clean and neat, the bed was firm and good to sleep on. You parked right in front of your room which made easy access. We had a very good hot breakfast with a staff member cooking omelets and a large assortment of many breakfast items available Only one discrepancy noted, the floor lamp would not work.

Hotel is located next to the falls. There is a walking trail along both sides of the river. Multiple restaurants within walking distance.
Hotel was recently renovated. All furniture and carpet is new. Everything was clean. Rooms are small, but good enough if you plan to be out and about most of the day. Breakfast was free and quite good. Not as nice as a Marriott or Hilton, but reasonable priced and no extra charges for Wi-Fi, breakfast, mini-fridge use, etc.

Room Tip: There are 2 parts to this hotel. There are the original motel rooms (probably built pre-1970), that...
