“Worst Motel We Have Ever Stayed At”
Reviewed 8 November 2007

They have a bad habit of lying to the customer by:

1. Saying that it is normal for week-end rates to increase yet when I checked around, after I left the motel, I come to find out that this is not correct.
2. These are some of the smallest rooms we have ever stayed in. If was even smaller that Motel 6's rooms which are small. In fact it was so small and had a bad smell that we left after 1 night even though we had planned to stay 3 nights.
3. They said that they had to have a 3 day cancellation notice to get a refund, yet all the other motels do not have this policy, in fact if you let them know by 6pm they will cancel the room for you. When we left they did not even offer a refund on the nights we did not stay.

I am telling everyone that I know that will be traveling through Moscow to stay away from this motel.

It was "Rush" for new college students and accommodations were limited...my only choice was the Palouse Inn. Knowing what I know now, I would have booked accommodations in Lewiston and driven the 30 miles into Moscow for my meeting. The property is dingy to say the least. They cut corners on every little thing. They claimed they don't put coffee pots in the rooms because people spill coffee on their "new" carpet. I'm not sure you could do any more harm to the "new" carpet than has already been done. There are no hair dryers in the rooms and of course you realize this in the early morning while you're still in your pajamas. You have to get dressed to run down to pick up the hair dryer from the check-in area (they won't deliver to the room). I found out later that they use the property for dorm rooms during "Rush" when they are juggling students around. I'm guessing the beds have the same flat mattresses that have been on them since the beginning of time. Check accommodations in Pullman, WA or Lewiston, ID before taking a chance on this place.

We stayed here one night while visiting Moscow. Upon checking in, the first thing we noticed was (after jangling the key around the lock for a few minutes to get the door open) was that the door was ill-fitted to the jam--you could see daylight through the cracks. The room was a bit dingy and dated, and the shower-only stall was not very sparkly-clean. The remote for the television was missing its battery casing, and had duct tape covering the batteries.

Overall, we would avoid staying here again.
