The room at the Holiday Inn was nice and clean. We had a nice view out the back of the mountains. The room size was very comfortable with a King bed, couch and coffee table, and a desk and chair. There is an extra sink by the fridge and microwave. They have free internet but it is slow. The only... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel on August 19th because our power was out and we had no water or phone service at our house. It was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The only complaints I had were basically just the elevator. It was very slow and there was only one. I used the stairs... More

This Holiday Inn Express is the nicest of the Express hotels we have stayed. We had a great meadow and mountain view from our window and the service was as good as we have encountered in more upscale properties. Comfortable beds and bathroom as well as nice furnishings made for an enjoyable stay. Would stay again when in the area.

Pricey alternative, but seems like a newer property. Clean and modern with a friendly staff. Breakfast was typical for this chain - nothing spectacular. Lou's is a restaurant in the parking lot and worth a visit.

I usually find the Holiday Inn Express brand reliable but it can be difficult to write anything interesting about them. Sandpoint, however,has better views from its windows than nearly any other chain hotel I've stayed at. I don't think you would regret an overnight stop here.

You get what you pay for! You might pay a little bit more but it's well worth it. Everything about this place is great. Room, breakfast, cleanliness, staff. Right next to it is Lou's restaurant, which I will review after this. It's a little past Sandpoint which was our destination but only a short drive.

This appears to be a "middle aged" HIE: not new, but very well maintained, furniture in good condition, granite composite tub surround in bath, warm color palette that works well in its Northern Idaho setting. Breakfast buffet was standard, with the addition of fresh strawberries to fruit choices, a delicious touch. Rooms on the west side of the building have... More

Usually there is very little good to say about corporate hotels but holiday inn has really gotten this one right. It fits into the landscape blending with the nature of its surroundings yet not trying to hide the fact that it is a part of a chain hotel. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and well organized. The desk personnel are... More

Our soccer team booked a group of rooms here for tournaments taking place locally. The hotel is nicely appointed but not downtown. Room rates for our group put us at a great rate at a hotel that was above average. Breakfast included. Nice exercise room and indoor pool. Nice common living room also.
