FairBridge Inn - Coeur d'Alene

Reviewed 13 June 2017

Air Conditioner stopped working around 11:30pm, room next to us was noisy, called and nothing was done, noisy till 1:30am. No coffee in the morning, Bob the clerk was too busy on his phone to even say good morning or have the coffee made. Pizza spilled up the stairs and down the hallway and was still there in the morning. Should have just left and not even stayed!

Thank you so much for informing us of your recent stay. I am so sorry that the room next to you was noisy until the wee hours of the night. We generally can get a handle on issues such as these and probably thought it was dealt with the first time to contacted the guest. Our front desk staff does try very hard to greet each guest and we do enjoy being friendly and starting a conversation. However, sometimes, our phone rings off the hook and we cannot give the level of customer service we desire. This is such a sensitive subject that Bob wanted to set the record straight and state that he did check you in that evening but it was Alex who worked the next morning. Bob is so careful of ensuring people feel welcome and important that he felt bad knowing that your stay wasn't perfect.

Decent last minute overnight stay while travelling on I-90 between Washington and Montana. We called at 8pm for a room for that night and Bob was extremely helpful and accommodating. We didn't arrive until 10pm and Bob made everything quick and easy so we could get to bed. We travel with two large dogs so finding a place to stay that is reasonably clean and affordable can be hard. We will likely stay again.

Reviews given mentioning Bob are the reasons we booked and drive for 30 minutes longer, & by luck Bob is the one that was taking care of our reservation :P convenient location, reasonable room sizes has been preheated before we come, comfy bed, clean bathroom with working hot shower plus equipped with standard amenities and basic decent breakfast are more than you can ask for a motel with affordable price.

The room itself was inexpensive for the area. We appreciated the in-room fridge and microwave to help cut down on cost. A breakfast is provided, but it is extremely limited. You can expect the normal beverages, a couple of choices of cereal, muffins cut into quarters, boiled eggs, and DIY pancakes/waffles. However, the batter dispenser will make you want to tear your hair out as it is slower than the DMV sloth in Zootopia.

Another caution is that this Inn has 3 floors, but it doesn't have an elevator. It appeared that all three floors (even the bottom floor) will involve carrying your luggage for at least half of a flight of stairs. There are two stairways, one on each end of the building, with ample parking nearby.

The exterior doors were not terribly secure as they would stick open. Someone also kept opening the back window which was placed low enough that someone could easily enter without a key. That said, the area did not seem to be concerning and I was not worried about our safety.

There is an inexpensive Family restaurant adjacent to the parking lot (Elmer's) with decent, low-cost food. There are several other choices within walking distances and a Winco just a short drive away. Don't forget to hike Tubbs trail, even for a 20-minute walk, as the views of the lake are phenomenal.

I stay here once in a while for work reasons. And I'm always comfortable returning. I think it's better than basic. The receptionist Bob is really helpful. He recommended a restaurant and on a previous stay I witnessed him helping a guest push start his car. How's that for excellent CS.

Reviews for this place when it was a Guesthouse Inn always scared me away, but seeing recent reviews since Fairbridge took over made me change my mind. Decent place, and a great rate on a third party site, gave Mom/Dad an opportunity for a nice 1-night getaway in C'dA. Our room was fine. Clean, comfortable bed with nice pillows, and flat screen TV, mini-fridge, microwave and new coffee maker. Now, we are not needy people, so take all that as you will. It's on a busy road, and traffic noise can not be avoided. If that might disturb your sleep, bring some gentle ear plugs. Thankfully, there was no derelict-dodging. All we saw were young families and couples, so Fairbridge has definitely cleaned this place up. Wifi worked great. Some very nice restaurants, all within walking distance. And there's a gas station/convenience store right next to it, which wound up being helpful for a few items we forgot to bring. Front desk staff were friendly and welcoming. Coeur d'Alene is a beautiful town, and when you can stay there on a nice spring Saturday for $60 bucks....sign my up!
