“Best stay-cation ever!!!! ”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

My family stayed at the AmeriTel for a little winter stay-cation. We were ready for something different and we found it here. The 24hr pool was amazing! The kids loved swimming and since it was open all night, my wife and I enjoyed the hot tub later that night with other couples. The staff was friendly and professional. The evening manager was very proficient at his job and, on multiple occasions, had guests waiting at the counter laughing and joking all around. We loved this hotel and next time we need a stay-cation we will be going back.

Dear monster112211,
Thank you for staying at the AmeriTel Inn and for sharing your experience with us. Winter is often the time we get local people coming up and have little stay-cations with us. It seems to break up the cold a little bit for them. I am glad to hear that you stay was pleasant and that our AGM did such a wonderful job for you. We look forward to have you back with us for your next get a way.

Stayed at this property twice in the same week. Good location and easy to find. Pleasant staff and easy check in. Rooms were clean but in need of an update.Two comfortable queen beds, no roll away beds available. Wish we had brought an air mattress as we are a family of 5 and that would have made it a much more comfortable stay. Staff did offer extra blankets if we needed them. In one room, the carpet was stained and smelled possibly of cleaning solution. In the second room we stayed in the carpet looked great, but one of the mattresses was ripped open on the side. The bathrooms looked old but were clean. Great perks such as 24 hour pool and exercise room, free wifi, a good free breakfast, including scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, potatoes, waffles, muffins and more AND discounts for nearby restaurants!. Great value if you can get past the dated decor.

Had a wonderful stay last weekend at the Pocatello ameritel. What I enjoyed most was the staff and cookies. From check in to departure my family and I felt very welcome. The front desk was very helpful with the few questions I had. I love the restaurant discount list I was given with my keycard, and the fact that housekeeping didn't miss a beat. Thank you ameritel for your hospitality and service you are my number one choice, and I will be staying again on my next visit to Pocatello.

I have been coming here for years. Best staff and service hands down. Rooms are comfortable and reasonably quite. Only issue is they have smoking rooms. This can drift to adjacent areas. Just ask and the staff will make every effort to help.

I stayed at this property for 3 days and though the carpet was what disappointed me the most I had a nice stay. The staff made up for it they were all very pleasant always smiling definitely put me in a good mood. The breakfast was good, also the cookies in the evenings. The thing i enjoyed the most about the Ameritel is the POOL and it was open 24hrs!! I will be returning to this hotel if I ever find myself in Pocatello again

My sister and I were traveling through Pocatello and stayed at this Ameri-Tel in room #231. The room had the following issues:
1) The fire detector was broken and literally hanging from the ceiling
2) The electrical outlet and lights on the headboard wall were not functioning and when we pulled the nightstand away from the wall we could see the outlet was broken and wires were exposed.
3) The privacy curtain on the window had three broken holders so the curtain would not close all the way allowing the parking lot lights to come in.
4) The toilet handle was broken so we had to lift the back lid to lift the plug to flush
5) Breakfast the next morning, the coffee was out. The gal did get more made but it was about 10 minutes without
6) The hashbrowns, muffins and hot chocolate were all gone and not refilled
7) The toaster was not functioning properly so the bread never did get toasted

There were kids running up and down the hall from 9:45 until around 11:00 (bad parents hard to blame the hotel) but the rooms obviously are not built well as all sounds came right into the room and were very loud. We didn't sleep well at all between the light coming in and the noise from other guests.
The beds were very comfortable though and the room was clean.
