Sad to see a big place closed. Would have hoped it could have survived - not sure why... Big place was empty and for sale. Even the storefronts by it with same style were primarily closed. Makes the place seem semi-deserted right on the corner as you come into town.

We are actually open :-) We were closed for the winter season as we have been doing the last years, but we opened mid May and will have lodging available through September. Please call 208.443.2447 if you would like to make a reservation!

Hotel is getting run down. Not very Clean. Pool needs work. Place is for sale. Convenient to many places & people at front desk were accommodating. Can walk to places to eat or buy food. Found big ants in room. Ugh.

Our friends were staying at a nearby resort for a week and invited us to join them for a few days. We decided to get our own room for the night so as not to crowd our friends the entire time. Checking online, The Inn at Priest Lake, came to our attention. It is located in Coolin, however not within...

My parents have owned a cabin near Coolin for years now and I have driven by this place hundreds of times and have never noticed the RV Park behind the hotel. Once I purchased an RV 2 years ago I heard of the RV park. The RV park has Full hookups including cable. I wish they had more than 4...

There is nothing special about this place, but the price was fair for where it is (4 miles from beautiful Priest Lake) and what you get. I believe that this hotel was closed for 2-4 years during the great recession, and re-opened this year. I'd like to see them make a go of it, and understand that they may be...

I had to travel to Northern Idaho for the EMT & Fire Training "skills week" session last week and after reading the reviews of The Inn at Priest Lake, I was a bit concerned about the accommodations. The hotel has been recently renovated and was far better than I was expecting. Since I was part of the EMS Academy I...

Thank you for choosing the Inn at Priest Lake to stay for your family reunion. In response to your review, I would like to apologize if your stay was not as you would have liked it.

We admittedly checked in very late and didn't have a reservation. The Inn looks very nice from the outside with big timbers and stone. The rooms are very economy and the walls rattle when other people go in our out of their room. The hotel is very clean, but is nothing special. It's about the same level as a Days...

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Inn at Priest Lake! In response to your review, the current management company took over in September 2011 and has worked very hard to start upgrading the "tired" rooms. We have completely renovated the lobby and large conference room due to a major water leak last winter. We are in the process...
