Location was convenient for our trip. Staff did not wear masks properly. Very disappointed. Tub did not drain. We were locked out of our room for no reason and staff wrongly keyed replacement card so we were still locked out. Very few guests wearing masks! No wonder Idaho is ON FIRE with Covid. Very disappointing and disgusting. Check-in guy forgot to give someone's credit card and driver's license back to previous guest and I mentioned it when I saw it on the table. His comment, 'Oh, that happens all the time' bothered me. It should NOT happen all the time. Desk staff was less than professional and sub par.

My husband had to have surgery at St. Lukes, so we chose this hotel which is only a couple of miles away. It worked out great! Very clean and close to shopping and there was a great Mexican restaurant right next door for take-out. Friendly staff, very clean and a nice accessible room too. Great breakfast!

The hotel was nice and the best part was it's smoke free. Our room was fine, we had a beautiful view and, everything was as expected. Breakfast was delicious and I loved that they have different options.

I was disappointed the hot tub was out of order. When we checked in our room smelled like cigarettes covered up with perfume. We were only in our room for 15 minutes before I started to get a headache. Jessica was amazing and she got us into another room without any hassle. Overall our stay was good and I would stay here again.
