Not worth the price and dont believe the pictures. I recently stayed in Sandpoint with some friends and took time researching hotels and picked the Best Western from photos online and previous experience with Best Western. Bad choice! There are posted photos of a free breakfast, and confirmed when I called I would get a free breakfast, and when I asked about free breakfast during my stay the answer I got was " We have never had a continental breakfast." The beds and pillows are extremely uncomfortable! The hot tub was the same temperature as the pool, and the "beach access" is to the public beach! We stayed on a holiday weekend so the beach was packed! The service was alright, but after looking at cheaper hotels in the area, and splurging on the "fancy hotel on the beach," I was disappointed in my choice. So in a nutshell - not worth the price, do not believe the pictures online, THERE IS NO FREE BREAKFAST, cold hot tub, and crowded "beach access." Dont waste your money.

For $200/night I think it is reasonable to expect the AC unit to work properly. IE be thermostatically controlled instead of running extremely loud and continously all night. Spent the next night at Sun Mountain Lodge for similar money and had a faboulous experience. People, food, bar were all fine; but none of that matters if I can not get a good nights sleep.

This hotel is quite new to Sandpoint and it is a welcome addition. The other hotels there have been just fair and a little outdated and "tired". In fact before BW Plus, we often drove on to Coeur D'Alene or Spokane for nicer lodging. Now however, Sandpoint can again be enjoyed to the fullest and the overnight at BW Plus is great. The staff is helpful, the facilities clean, the location is very near town and it is in a quiet neighborhood.

Hotel staff is very supportive and friendly. The restaurant got overrun with a lot of guest's at times and the staff had some challenges to keep up with demand serving the food. Service was still acceptable under the conditions. A great place to visit.

10/10 location, 200 a night seems high. Building needs a facelift, starting to show its age. Pool area not the cleanest, sauna was down. But if you want to walk out your patio to the city beach then this is the one. Love the area, would go back.

This hotel is right on the beach, and if you like a great deck for drinks and food, this place has it!!! While the hotel isn't that new, it is clean and rooms spacious. We got a ground floor room which we loved and all rooms have a great view!!
