This would be good place to stay if the place was kept up a little better. Price and services were ok but you don't get anything extra to say you got what you paid for. As long as this remains the least expensive place in Idaho Falls you will have your expectations met.

We were traveling with a group of friends driving to Montana from Las Vegas and just needed a place to sleep for the night thinking it couldn't be that bad. It is that bad, the hotel is scary looking in the hallways and rooms, we pulled the comforter off the bed and did not want to sleep with it which...

I stayed here for 2 weeks with my kids. It was obviously once a nice hotel with a lovely courtyard area that children could play in, even a gazeebo with a grill. Sadly however all is very run down & ill maintained. The manageme & housekeeping is far below par. Drugs & drug users abound. Not a safe or clean...

I have been working in Idaho Falls for the past 25 plus years. I have always stayed at the Pine Crest because it is part of my job offering. I have seen this hotel slowly go downhill. The house cleaning staff still does a great job. But the property has seen much much better days. Nothing a little cleaning and...

Booked thru priceline app. Payment thru goggle wallet. I was emailed a comfirmation #, a booking # and I believe a pin #. At arrival my reservation was in the system. Easy check in. Emails from goggle and credit card company declined all transactions after priceline transaction was approved. I had to make another payment with my debit card. F.y.i....

We arrived in Idaho falls without a hotel reservation and found it difficult to find a room. We found the Pinecrest online and called. They had a room with two queens. It was midnight so we took it. The hotel is very dated and dirty. The bathroom had this awful tile job that wasn't finished or had just been completely...

This hotel was awful! The carpets were filthy, the sheets were dirty, stained , and had cigarette burns in them. The hallways were filled with cigarette smoke. There were no secured doors to get into the hallways, and many windows were broken. I was afraid to leave my car in the parking lot. Because we booked on Expedia, and couldn't...

Don't know if it was just this room or if they're all this bad, but camping would have been better than this. Staff was friendly, but the room was filthy. Hard to even go to sleep when you don't want to put your head on the pillow for fear of germs. Message to the hotel: Clean it up, get new...

The rooms are what you paid for.. a place to rest,shower and sleep. The price is right. If you want a dream room stay at the Shilo... But if your looking for a good room for the right price this is it.

I stayed at the Pinecrest Inn for 2 nights when I took my Daughter to BYU-I. Planning is everything when going to Rexburg, which has limited motel space. I booked my room over 2 months prior to my stay. When I arrived they were Sold Out. I knew what I was renting when I made the reservation and had no...
