Each room has a kitchen and they have a hot breakfast for the guests every morning and have tea, cocoa and hot coffee available all day. Nice place in the downtown heart of Orofino. Lots of fishermen and hunters.

This is a historic hotel in the center of town and close to the river. Rooms are large and have a full kitchen and large refrigerator. Two seperate rooms. Elevator and close to resturants and lounges. Eazy walk to river. Great stay.

I'll cut to the chase. The pros: very comfortable bed, lovely reception from Michelle, large suite...BUT the carpet was FILTHY and the air conditioner sounded like a jet plane. The noise from the air conditioner did help drown out the noise of trucks rumbling up and down the street right outside the window. The carpet is really horrific - it... More

This was a nice hotel for the price. I actually could live there. The personnel were very nice and helpful. Our room was more of an efficiency apartment with everything you need.

This was a great place based on cost alone. Very clean, friendly staff, nice rooms. This is not a luxury hotel, but it has everything we needed. Its location was very nice as we could walk to many places. Close to the river and places to eat. It has a very nice outdoor patio with a gas grill.

I always stay at this iconic hotel - very old but comfortable. They made a few improvements such as free wifi and new door locks. Ancient elevator still works and rates are reasonable. Owner also built the newer Marriot but haven't tried that yet. Free breakfast at 7:30 AM.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the hotel. We think you might be confused however; there is no Marriot in Orofino?

The reception area belies the brightness, cleanliness and comfort of the rooms (in response to one of the other reviewers who never visited a room). Whereas the entrance is the original brick, the reception office a bit small and the elevator is a relic of days gone-by (which I actually find fun but the stairway is right there to use,... More

Went to a relatives wedding and there were many so the hotel was full. I was very happy with my room. I didn't expect it to be as large as it was and I didn't expect the friendliness of the staff. I would love to stay there again one day.

This was the second time I stopped here overnight. Orofino is not the kind of town you can spend a great deal of time in.
