Cottage themed hotel is super adorable for being in the middle of nowhere. It doesn't look like much outside but log cabin feel inside is cozy. Rooms are clean, FREE waffle is awesome!! Staff is super awesome too!! They just need to fix internet in rooms. Despite it being free there's no active connection. At least not on 2nd floor. I'd suggest investing in wifi nodes for each end of each floor. Also maybe invest in updating bathrooms eventually (Very clean regardless). Overall happy with visit and totally would stay again! :)

Thank you for your review. We will look into internet signal to see why it is not strong in all areas of the hotel, perhaps we need another router or two. The entire hotel was renovated two years ago except for the bathrooms. It is on our list this winter.

After reading some other reviews, we gave this place a shot. We stayed one evening and thought it was great! Very cute, homey rooms. Clean rooms, Comfortable beds and friendly service. You can't beat the price for one night on the road. For 69.00 we received free breakfast, coffee maker, microwave and a fridge. Close enough to restaurants, but we drove into Sandpoint, which is only a five minute drive. One negative is they had a very weird squeaky bathtub that was very loud. That being said......whatever!

After driving all day from Oregon we were happy to find cheap, safe, friendly accommodation. The bed was comfy, room was clean, AC worked and the shower was hot. Can't ask for more for a 12 hour stay.

At first, I thought our stay at this lodge would be a good one. We were very grateful to get a room over lost in the 50's weekend when most places in the area were booked. The first thing that threw me off was the parking lot. Almost all of the parking spaces were impossible to get out of if there was anyone parked near you. My husband and I wanted to go get dinner only to find that we couldn't get our vehicle out of its spot without damaging another vehicle. So we were stuck in our room until someone moved. I imagine if you have a small car this would be okay to maneuver through (IF you park in the back and everyone around you parked properly.) But, for an SUV or large truck, its a parking nightmare. The second thing that threw me off was the mosquitoes, our room was full of them. The room was very small, which was okay since it was so cheap and it had nice wood furniture and seemed cozy. I soon realized you could not walk barefoot, it was as if they didn't vacuum at all before we got there. I wouldn't have been surprised if I found out they hadn't cleaned at all. The bathroom and room had zero ventilation. I took a shower, closed the bathroom door with the fan on and two hours later the bathroom was still steamy as if someone had JUST showered. We had to leave the door open, which made the room miserable and smell like stale water and since we couldn't open the window because of the mosquitoes we just had to suffer. That night we had to listen to the neighbors dog barking literally non-stop which I understand was not the lodge's fault, but it was still incredibly irritating. The next morning we were woken up by cleaning staff slamming doors and talking in the hallways. We needed to do some laundry and, of course, they do not provide laundry machines for guests. The room we were given would be adequate for one person staying one night, if you plan on staying any longer than that I recommend spending the extra $30 and staying at another hotel. I wish we had.

Room Tip: Park directly in front of check-in area, anywhere else you will be easily stuck if there are many ot...

Lost in the 50s Car Show is such a wonderful event to attend when visiting Sandpoint. I am sorry to hear your staff wasn't the best. Anytime you have an issue such as a dog barking, please give us a quick call at the front desk and we will take care of it. We will also check your bathroom fan for ventilation. The parking lot situation is highly aggravating. We do note vehicle makes and models upon check-in so that if there is a situation, we can call the appropriate owners. Thank you again for trying us out.

I don't understand a few not so good reviews of this lodge. For the price we paid, the accommodation is more than enough for what we get in exchange.
My family and I only found one strange item in the room - the creaking bathtub. But it's OK since we never take bath in a public-used bathtub. Otherwise, the room incl the bathroom is quite clean. The rustic western furniture are so awesome - reminds us of being in West USA.
The heating system did not give us enough warmth but since it's not that very cold, getting under the comforter kept us warm.
The continental breakfast is more than adequate for our needs. What would anyone expect from a local lodge? A five-star breakfast!!!
Expect pictures I took of the room. Will download soon.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second floor. We had a corner room and is more than enough space for the 3 of u...
