Stayed here for a night, very disappointed. Cute rooms. But very thin walls, there wasn't any bar soap and the container that they put shampoo and conditioner in was empty. There was holes in the wall, the sheets looked as if they hadn't been changed. There was hair all over them. And the little couch in the room was nasty....

There's typically a reason why one hotel/motel is the last to be fully occupied. Driving through Idaho without an itinerary and wanted to stay in Salmon after a long day of driving. Every hotel was fully booked for about an 80 mile radius except this one, so against my better judgment I checked in for a night. Not sure where...

This motel was a good room for the price. The owner was friendly and helpful. The beds were a little hard but still slept fine. plenty of parking and walking distance to restaurants. Rooms a little noisy but fine.

I would give this place 5 stars just for the air conditioner. The room was clean. The air conditioner was awesome. I have stayed in many motels where the a/c did not work well. They are pet friendly. There were a lot of motorcycles there but the noise did not bother me. Nothing fancy but fine for a night's stay.

$70 something dollars a night. That's cool. The older grandma checking us in was a pure delight! The pool was outstanding! Everything else was AWFUL! Internet, yeah, just try to use it. The sheets were not washed! I'll post pictures of the hairs and "fuzzies" left by previous guests. Just 100% gross. The carpet was disgusting. The walls are paper...

I stay in motels about 10 days a month and came here due to my usual one being booked in Salmon. The rooms are very clean, have microwaves and fridges which is nice and the property is well maintained. The staff is pretty nice too. If only these issues below didn't exist I'd rate it much higher but these things...

My husband and I stayed at the now Bear Country Inn on our trip from Boise to Kalispell, MT. Room was fine but dated. The bathroom was right by the door into the room, and the fan came on very loudy when the light was turned on. If you opened the door so you could hear, then anyone who came...

This hotel is now called Bear Country Inn, very clean room and shower and that are very important to us. Very polite and wonderful staff. The room came standard with a great size refrigerator and small microwave, loved the thick and fluffy towels they have, not the typical small white ones. we would most definitely stay again, as it was...

“Upstairs is perhaps a better option and the first floor, but it's up a flight of outdoor stairs, no elevator.”
