Hi All,

I will be driving though Idaho Falls (on the freeway) and want a safe, reasonable, clean place to stay for the night. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks !

I stayed one night at Hotel On The Falls recently. Found the room for about $60/night on kayak.com and it was clean and safe. Close to the interstate and close to plenty of restaurants

there are cheaper options in town ($40/night) but I'd rather sleep in my car than some of those places

Thanks, $60 is great, I don't want to stay in a $40/night hotel either.

We've stayed at Red Lion Inn at the falls. I can't remember what we paid, but it was reasonable, and the view from high up on the 8th (?) floor was tremendous. Plus there was a nice breakfast cafe next to the hotel. Stretch your legs and walk down the path along the Falls--it's a wonderful breather after a long day's driving.

You mentioned in CDA you'll have a dog with you. If that's the case, try Motel west (Broadway and I-15 locally owned), Shilo Inn (on the river) and I believe Holiday Inn Express (in town). I'm sure there are others that allow pets, but these are the ones that come to mind. Safe travels!! Also, the timing of your stay matters, if it's July 3rd, the rivers rooms will be booked or sorely over priced

Hi adventuregirl,

I think you've been given some good tips from earlier posts. As Cleosmom pointed out, if you have a canine pal, that will limit your choices. The Holiday Inn Express isn't near the interstate.

I don't think the Hilton and Marriott brands allow pets. There are a couple in the Choice Hotel group that are very popular. But, I don't know about K-9s at those properties.

And Cleosmom is also correct that depending on your travel dates, the fireworks book the river front hotels 364 days in advance.

Let us know if you have any other questions. Keep IDOT handy to make sure no construction will delay your trip.

Have fun

MSR

This place is nice and clean and is pet friendly. I stayed there last year on the way home from CDA and they have a soup bar on weekday evenings so you don't have to go out and eat.

If I go to CDA on the I-15, I'll probably stay there again.

Guest Inn, on Lindsey is decent for the price. This was originally a Holiday Inn back in the day. But heavilly remodeled. The Shilo offers large mini-suites, but will be twice the price. IMO, avoid the Super 8, while their rates are lower, it just doesn't offer much. IMO, Super 8 has been on a down hill slide, not all locations, but many. I'm afraid these franchises were peaking during the great recession, but the future is not so bright and you don't need to wear shades.

Guesthouse, not Guest. BTW, most hotels jack up their rates beginning around the end of May. Try and lock in an advanced rate ahead of time if you are certain of your plans.

I'm not posting this to be ungrateful in any way as I always appreciate the help I get on CD, but more as a service to others who may read this post in the future. Motel West in Idaho Falls was (to me) a place I would never consider staying even if they paid me ~ it looked like a place people with pit bulls wearing wife beaters go to do crack, and it wasn't cheap. I found a beautiful hotel ~ Best Western Plus Driftwood Inn, right across from the river with a sweet walkway with a MUCH better feel to it for only about $5 or $10 more. It was heaven for me and my little pooch after a very long day of driving.

DO NOT stay at Motel West!
