“great value”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

first regarding other reviews of a dog barking. we called ahead and asked them about the issue.... they admitted it had been but said they would put us in a room away from that issue. We were in a room up toward the road 105 did NOT hear the dog AT ALL.. Now we road our motorcycle and they allowed us to pull our bike under the walkway right in front of our room window.. AWESOME! it was pouring down rain and THAT earned points with us... Breakfast was not bad. some hot items and some cold. sausage gravy waffels... Yogurt ceral all the basics. they have wipe down rags for the motorcycles. totally appreciated that... good stay at a great price

Room Tip: call ahead and simply talk to them and they will do you right

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

I am so glad you called ahead and spoke with our front desk staff; they truly are amazing people and I am glad to hear they didn't disappoint!

We love our Motorcycle Riders and I am glad you got to make use of our Motorcycle cleaning kit!

For less than $60 per night, you will not go wrong! Large room, clean room, king-size bed provided an awesome sleep, full breakfast, chairs and table outside door to enjoy outdoors. Will definitely come back again!!

The Clearwater 12 offers friendly service, extra large rooms, extra clean rooms, extra comfortable beds, extra ordinary view of the beautiful Kamiah hills which is the beginning of the Nez Perce trail of tears. All is terrific at the 12! Can't wait for my next visit! Thanks, Manager of the 12, Judie!

I arrived in Kamiah, on my way to have an adventure driving along the Clearwater River on highway 12 where three rivers join (Clearwater,Lochsa and Selway). It was a fabulous time of the year...Fall...with leaves a blazing!! I went in to the little casino for a bite to eat, came back out and my keys were no where to be found. The town's lock smith could not get my car open(in case my keys were in it) .I walked down to the motel and was feeling pretty miserable . Judie, the manager handed my her smart phone and said I could use it as long as I needed. I had to call my husband to come and bring another set of keys (he was fishing on the Salmon River..so didn't get my message right away.) I made several calls and finally my insurance company sent a tow truck and that guy got my car open and there were my keys on the floor! A person checking, in drove me down to my car. This whole experience was an eye opener to me. People are so good!!! Not only was Judie so very thoughtful but the room was fabulous!! Coffee Pot,Microwave, huge room, great bed, lovely view (I love the second floor because of the view of the hillside,etc) and stellar breakfast.
The rate was under $60. My husband and I have stayed here many times. Yes, there are stairs to climb for the better view rooms...but this area is so beautiful it is certainly worth the climb. Regarding the "barking dog...in other reviews...didn't hear a thing!! Thanks Judie!!

Room Tip: Second floor for a view. There is no restaurant but the town has good places to eat. The continent...

Thank you Judie and her husband !! You had our room temp. just perfect for us when we got there on that hot day, we were greeted like old friends, so helpful and nice. The room was huge... The beds were to die for !!! We wished we had those mattresses in our home. The breakfast was great. We stayed on bottom floor but I did look at stairs that others have commented on and I could NOT see anything at all wrong with them, and I'm an older lady. Never heard any dogs or even any traffic. All this for under a $100. I would go out of my way to stay here again.. Thank you

Room Tip: If possible call Judie and tell her your needs and she will fix you right up.

Can't really fault this small motel in small but interesting town. Spacious clean room with nice views. Yes there was a barking dog as per a previous reviewer but only heard it three times and it stopped each time after 30 seconds. Interesting place to vosit albeit not a destination place but fine for an enroute stopover
