Located directly across from the falls! Very nice area with plenty of restaurants and things to do within walking distance. The room was very clean and the staff friendly! Only downside was our air conditioning went out during the night. Would highly recommend staying with this hotel

Great location, helpful staff, a beautiful town and this hotel is very centrally located. Good stop on the way to Glacier National park in Montana. Will definitely stay again if we are ever up this way on vacation.

Overall the place is very nice. Room is set up very spacious and clean. Flatscreen TV, microwave, and mini refrigerator. Quiet hotel right on the Idaho falls! Great views for sure! Also very close to a lot of places to eat! AC broke around 6 AM. Started making loud noises that kept all of us awake. Other than that no...

Great location on the river. Check in was quick. Room is nice and had everything we wanted (we'd have liked a safe but this seems to be more in the touristy parts of the US) Breakfast at the weekend is until 10am which is good and great variety!

Clean and friendly. Great location. Excellent breakfast. 😀. It is on the river and has an extremely nice view. There are several trails in a park close to it that are definitely worth walking through. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

First off, they didn't have my reservation upon arrival. The front desk could use some training on basic stuff, like reservations and receipts. Stood at the counter for half an hour, and it was almost midnight so you can imagine a person flying all day being tired and expecting a nice cozy bed. The room is definitely outdated. No HD...

Very poor experience! I reserved 2 rooms on July 4th. When I arrived there was no parking. My mother is disabled and cannot walk for 10 blocks. I was told I could not cancel the rooms since it was a holiday (needed 7 days’ notice to cancel). I left crying. I drove around for quite some time to find another...

This was our 10th hotel on this trip, it had, by far, the best breakfast. A lady made your eggs to order, and mine were very nice. The hotel was clean and comfortable. A high point is that the hotel is just across the road from the Riverwalk, we enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine.

Easy access to/from free-way, wonderful location, helpful and courteous staff, and the BEST breakfast ever! How can you beat individually prepared-to-order eggs! Almost enough to plan a trip around a stay at BW in Idaho Falls!
