    « Checks all the boxes! »

    This hotel meets all the basic needs. It's nothing outstanding, but we enjoyed the time there. The rooms are a tad dark, but we were comfortable enough. It has all the amenities you might expect, and we slept okay. I have no complaints. We thought we'd go out for breakfast, so we didn't try the complimentary breakfast. The pool, hot tub, and workout areas were a highlight for us. The pool is big! I got in a quick workout, too, which was nice.

    « Easy Access »

    Average hotel located easily off freeway. Rooms are average, but clean. Breakfast was excellent. My only complaint is that my sleep was interrupted by late check in above me. After 11 pm people should be told to come in rooms quietly.

    Very nice place to stay. Was there two nights - one each on both legs of a road trip MTB vacation. Beautiful by the River and great restaurant across the street. Front desk staff super friendly, and breakfast had everything one could ask for!

    « Great night rest to break up our long drive »

    Very comfortable beds, nice room, good pool, clean with friendly staff. Wasn't overly impressed with the look of the breakfast, so I did't eat. Good rates, and seemed to be the only hotel not fully booked in I.F, which is difficult to understand as it's a lovely hotel.

    Liz at the front desk bent over backwards to make sure everything went smoothly for us when our truck broke down and out plans had to change quickly. She made sure we had a place to leave bags until check in and worked with our crazy schedule for the day we left.

    « Great rest after long drive »

    The 29th of March started early at 0400 in Apache Junction Arizona and ended in Idaho Falls Utah. The check in at Cottontree was swift and the directions to our room accurate. The room it self was spacious and clean with a very comfortable King bed. The only small beef was that at 0500 in the morning the coffee was not hot.

    Long day on the road, wasn't sure where we would get to but found this nice motel by the falls. They upgraded our room, gave us a nice cooked to order breakfast, newspaper, all for a very reasonable price. We declined the evening snacks as we were full from a recent dinner. Will stay there again and recommended it to friends!

    We were on a mini-vacation and found the rental car had a slow leak in a tire. We limped to the Best Western Cotton Tree Inn, Idaho Falls, ID, calling on the way to reserve a room. We woke to a flat tire. After multiple phone calls trying to get the car running again, my husband asked the hotel attendant if they could assist. In a few minutes the manager came out with a small compressor, filled the tire so we could get on our way. Such a great help. They went out of their way to help us! The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great!

    An easy turn off the I-15 will ensure that your stay at this INN is a very good experience. I cannot fault anything about this place. It is a relative new, quiet and very clean facility. We appreciated the wrapped remote and lovely local art on the walls! Comfortable bed & good quality bedding/duvet. Staff very friendly; real scrambled eggs, standard breakfast. Eating place (Jaker's Restaurant & Grill) across the street is mediocre but convenient.

    Extremely satisfied with this Hotel on price and the overall newness. We stayed on our trip down to our cruise out of Long Beach and loved the hotel and decided to stay again on our way back. Comparing it with some of the hotels we stayed at in Las Vegas and Long Beach it was a 10 compared to the 5 in the other hotels on our trip although the cruise stateroom was comparable.

    Beautiful hotel and rooms! Upgraded everything from the linens, and draperies, to the faucets and high quality room amenities. Good hot breakfasts. The flat screen TV's are large as well. You can't beat it for the price. At last we middle class people can afford luxury. Thank you Best Western PLUS.

    This chain of motels has been great. They have great staff and very nice rooms. My favorite thing is the 24 hour pool/hot tub and fitness center. It allows you to travel all day and still relax when it fits your schedule. The breakfast is also great! Lots of variety, something for everyone. I eat gluten free and could still find plenty to eat. They were also very accommodating when we ending up having to bring out dog at the last minute.

    This is the cleanest hotel property I've ever visited and stayed at. The owner is always looking for ways to enhance and upgrade the lodging experience. There are always improvements that are easy to recognize from the parking lot to the pool to the room it's self. I couldn't be more pleased to recommend this hotel.

    We were very pleased with the Best Western Cotton Tree. We stopped here enroute from Canada to Arizona. Had a great supper at Sarah's. The location is just off the interstate. It is also close to Olive Garden, Famous Dave's and Wendy's. It is close to the river

    This is my third stay at this location....why because on my first stay.... I had a rock hit my windshield on my brand new car....it was a cold night in November and I knew I had to get it fixed before the windshield cracked. The staff called all around Idaho Falls and found someone to come and fix the chip at the hotel...and did I mention this was close to midnight! I've stayed here since and received exceptional service every time.

    « Away from Home »

    Excellent location near the falls and easy access to the freeway exit. Restaurant within easy walking distance, gas station across the street, what more can one ask for? Having said all that, what makes it even more special, was the staff experience. BW has done it right as to who they want hire and manage their front desk. As of this experience, BW has become my first choice when needing accommodations.

    « The best place to stay in Idaho Falls »

    This Best Western is very nice to stay at. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient, the rooms are nice and the amenities such as the pool/hot tub and fitness center are very nice. It's great to relax in the hot tub after a long road trip. The lobby/reception area is really clean and inviting, and the rooms are nice. The continental breakfast is about what any continental breakfast is like. I always stay at this hotel when I'm in Idaho Falls, and this last trip was the only time I've ever thought the sausage and breakfast potatoes were overcooked. That being said, they were still good and I look forward to the next time I get to stay at this Best Western.

    « Very comfortable hotel in this town »

    I usually travel for business so this was an unusual occasion of spending time with the family in Idaho Falls just to have fun in the indoor swimming pool with the grandkids. They loved it. The pool was lovely, heated and indoor, and the hotel rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. I would certainly stay here again. Really enjoyed the breakfast too.

    I made the reservations on Hotels.com and everything went as planned. I wrote in the comments that my son has special needs and what that entailed and we were put in a spacious huge handicapped room. Everything went perfectly without even having to contact the hotel first. The beds were very cozy and the staff very helpful. I will only stay at this hotel every time I go to Idaho Falls. Also, really clean rooms. Loved playing in the pool!

    The second to last BW we'd stay at for this road trip and a great hotel it was too. Room was comfy and clean and there wasn't any noise. We were able to have a meal in the nearby Denny's and then to chill in our room before getting some well deserved rest before the last leg of this trip.

    « My go-to Hotel in Eastern Idaho »

    I travel a lot for work and BW is my go to hotel chain. In my experience BW is routinely above and beyond the other Hotel chains I have stayed with. The Cotton Tree in Idaho Falls is right on up there with the better Hotels of the BW Chain that I have stayed at. Even through the Hotel was completely booked and the staff was actually having to send walk in customers to a neighboring hotel they were very friendly and more then willing to do everything they could to make my stay enjoyable.

    I stayed at this hotel on my way back to Canada. The hotel is located in, what I consider to be a more industrial area however it is very close to everything. There is a Denny's and Outback steakhouse and convenience store across the road. Very handy!! The rooms are well appointed, nicely decorated and have modern amenities. They have a business center, pool and service a nice breakfast included with the room. The location is safe and very quiet.

    Just wonderful! The property touts a fresh remodel and it shows! The place is modern and squeaky clean. The rooms are stylish and the bed, ohh, sooo, comfortable. All staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. There is a small business center, laundry facilities and snack machines for the guests. Free breakfast is offered starting at 6Am, and I must say, the spread is pretty incredible. The hotel is easily accessible from the highway and there is a Denny's restaurant across the street. I highly recommend this property.

    King suite was beyond expectations. Incredibly clean, comfortable, stylish. Well designed and beautifully decorated, both the room and the hotel had everything we could have wanted and then some. Would definitely return if we ever travel through Idaho Falls again... Now looking for reasons to visit Idaho Falls so we can stay here again.

    « Friendly staff »

    My room was excellent. The staff were friendly. I made use of the business centre, which again was good. It was only a 10 minutes walk along the river to the Falls themselves and the many restaurants near them. I didn't try the pool out, so I can't comment on it. It was front of house so visible from the car park and road so if you like privacy for a swim it's not for you. The breakfast was good but the breakfast room was small and many in our 2 coach party had to eat in the lobby and corridor. Not a serious issue, I would imagine, only an issue when there's a large group staying (c100) and they all have to go to breakfast together so as to be ready to leave at the same time as one another. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Idaho Falls.

    « Third Visit Here »

    We travel from our home to Boise, ID, once a year and this was our third time staying at this property. I tried making reservations before our trip, but at $175 for one "overnighter," there was no way I was going to stay. I checked again the day before returning home from Boise to find the rate had dropped to $103, so I cancelled our original reservation at a "discount motel," so we could stay here. The rooms are always clean and quiet, and staff is always friendly. I just wish they (and other hotels) would quit bouncing their pricing up and down.

    « Excellent hotel »

    This is a wonderful property. If I hadn't of stayed at this hotel several times when it was another brand, I would have thought it was brand new. Everything has been completely refurbished and redecorated. Our room was large, king bed with a pull out sofa, coffee table, desk and chair, refrigerator that was enclosed in a nice cabinet. My husband loved the flat screen TV to watch a football game of one of our home teams. The bed was comfortable with lots of pillows. Full standard BW breakfast. The hotel was full and there was heavy demand for breakfast. The staff did a good job keeping up. The hotel has a 24 hour, guest laundry and small business center. One minor downside was the the elevator was down a long hall away from reception. We walked right by it and to go back to reception to clarify it's location. Perhaps management could provid some better signage....as in directional sign and an overhead sign at the elevator. Shout to the young lady who was working the reception desk at about 7 pm on Sept 2. When I approached the desk she was on a phone call with someone who appeared to be giving her a difficult time about a rate quote or something. She acknowledged me and was very professional with the caller.

    A suite for 6 people and a lovely room is what we had. All staff were EXTREMELY helpful. Breakfast was standard BW of which you get tired of after 2 days....but it was included.

    I had a group utilizing 60 rooms for 3 nights at this hotel. The service was excellent, even preparing breakfast an hour early for them one morning when the group had to depart very early. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Housekeeping did a great job. The complimentary breakfast offered a large selection and the breakfast staff kept everything filled and tables cleaned promptly. And the administrative staff as well as the front desk handled everything efficiently and were so nice to deal with, especially considering our room list had last minute changes! This is clearly a well-managed hotel and I would highly recommend staying here if coming to Idaho Falls.

    One of the quietest hotels we have stayed in. We weren't awoken at all hours of the day and night by banging doors.

Pool is always open which is great since we prefer to have a soak in the spa after the kids have left.

    After a long day's driving from Glacier National Park, Montana, we were very pleased to have stayed at the Best Western Plus Cottontree Inn at Idaho Falls, ID. We were immediately welcomed and given the key to our spacious and clean rooms. Moreover, there were freshly baked cookies and information about the local area. Our restaurant choice (Jackers) was right across the street. As mentioned, our rooms were spacious and clean with the usual amenities expected staying at a BW. We were not disappointed in our stay and glad we choose this hotel.

    « Best of the Best »

    I don't think I've ever given a hotel 5 stars in all the hotels I have reviewed. I can't think of anything negative about our stay here. It was better than just very good. All of the staff was efficient and kind. Rooms were large and very clean. That's what you expect from a hotel. But what makes this hotel really stand out is the very large swimming pool and hot tub that is open 24 hours. And check out is noon. So if you get in late you can swim, and time to swim in the am. They have a nice fitness center as well. Breakfast is included with a nice selection including waffles with fruit toppings and whipped cream! Coffee is hot, fresh and good. Really, it was well worth the price we payed. Of course coming from Cody where we paid twice as much for a poor quality motel, this was a pleasant, relaxing stop and what every hotel should strive to be. If we are through this way again we will stop here again. Well done, Cotton Tree.

    Very clean, convenient, friendly and accommodating staff; really love the location being right across the street from the River Walk; very nice! The only problem I had was off street parking issue, there wasn't enough room, so I had to park on street overnight; and no luggage carrier is available at this property to tote luggage in one trip to room, so I had to make multiple trips, and a family of four's luggage and belongings is not a small amount. Breakfast was good, nothing spectacular, but it was nice. I would visit this hotel again.

    Best place to stay in Idaho Falls. The staff is excellent, as friendly as family. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. I love the pillows!! The hotel is right on the river with a trail to enjoy. Breakfast has many great choices. This is my go to place for Idado Falls.

    The catagory of a "Best Wester Plus" is really shown in the service and the facility. A great location to the riverwalk which is very scenic and relaxing at the same time. Just go out the door and one is practically on the riverwalk and the Snake River as it runs along side of the walkway.

    Good stopping point on the way to West Yellowstone. Clean room, restaurants in walking distance. Nice breakfast no complaints but also nothing "charming" either. I look first to Best Western first when traveling as feel they give good value.

    Excellent in every way except room was next to the vending machine and Ice machine. Very loud family getting items from vending machine after we went to bed, then someone filled up their ice chest at 5 am. Make sure to ask to not have room next to these amenities if you want a good sleep. Other than that, everything else was great.

    I stayed at BW Plus Cottontree Inn on our way to Blackfoot. It was a very nice hotel. The rooms were big, the beds were very comfortable. We all had a good nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning was good. Multiple choices to choose from. The staff was very friendly. Free Wifi. I would recommend this hotel.

    I stayed here for 2 night to enjoy waterfalls and this adorable little town prior to heading out to join a friend for a girlfriends vacation. I travel with my dog and was given a room on the first floor close to the exit...which I appreciate. The room was clean, comfortable and everything worked. All staff were professional and helped with whatever I needed. Breakfast was organized, clean, and had a large variety. Coffee was available 24 hours...which is something I like as I get up at 5 a.m. and do not like the coffee in the room. They also had ice water and hot water for tea. The internet was a little slow, but worked fine for checking e mail and face book. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay here again.

    « Good hotel but bad breakfast »

    Hotel is nice, rooms look spacious & clean, staff is friendly & courteous. Overall a good hotel & a good value. That being said maybe we hit it on a bad morning but breakfast was horrible. Hard dry Tater tots instead of hash browns, bacon that was like jerky, eggs & what passes for oatmeal weren't good either. I've stayed at BW plus in 4 states & this was the only one I've had any issues. Still as I said earlier the hotel is still good overall & a good value, especially with their rewards program.

    Very enjoyable stay. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. Our room(stayed to different time), was excellent, very clean an comfortable. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. They made you feel comfortable. The breakfast area was very clean and organized and breakfast was very good with several choices to make. My only suggestion in the breakfast room would be not to put the butter on ice. I put it in the micro to soften it so that it would melt on my waffle.

    « What a gem of a motel! »

    This was easily the best motel we stayed in during our three week trip to the US, and great value for money. The hotel itself looks like it was recently renovated and is clean, stylish, and easy to move around. There is a little sitting area at reception with a gas fire and a 24-hour heated indoor pool and hot tub. Our room was a decent size, well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable and the armchair with footrest and desk meant there were places to sit and chill other than the beds. The mini refrigerator was blissfully quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices. The only minor downside was that the air conditioner was really loud and difficult to use - we ended up having to switch it off as we couldn't sleep with it on. Fortunately we didn't really need it but it would have been quite unpleasant if we had.

    BW Plus Cottontree Inn was comfortable. We appreciated the large double room (2Q + pullout), dual refrigerators, and comfortable beds. Room was noisy--we were on the main floor on a corner near a side street and had quite a bit of road noise. Had a noisy bus parked outside the window for a bit. Also wondered if the guests above us were playing football. (I would get the same room again but would request 3rd floor for more quiet.) Would be good to clean under the pullouts more regularly. Kids loved the pool. Breakfast was good--a little unattended as many items ran out early and had to be pointed out. Breakfast staff was pleasant. Overall, desk staff were competent--not very warm or outgoing, but able to answer questions if approached. We would be fine staying here again. Would love to see a more engaged staff.

    « Be sure to ask for a room away from bus tours! »

    We booked the night at this BW on hoteltonight.com which has been great for road trip traveling and not knowing where your day will end. This hotel was friendly and clean and convenient to area eateries. But the one big mistake was that the clerk who checked us in, put us in a room where just about the entire floor was dominated by a bus tour of Asian tourist. The walls are VERY thin so we heard all there conversations all night as they ran around the halls to each other's rooms. Then when they finally went to sleep, their alarms went off at 5am to get back on the bus. So we too were up at 5am!! I blame the hotel mgr on duty for his poor judgement, not the tour group who were here. But the tour group was very loud and slammed doors continuously! What the heck were they doing???? No I did not call the front desk as I was in my pj's and we managed to get to sleep as they settled down about midnight. But the 5am wake up was terrible as all the noise started again! I would have given this BW a five but can only rate a 3 based on the poor decision to put us on the same floor and the fact that there is obviously no sound barriers between walls! I mean we heard every word. Didn't understand Chinese but heard it all!! Very disappointed and very tired today!!

    Upon check in I was impressed with our Desk Clerk Heather. She was extremely helpful and promptly checked us in offering us fresh cookies. We preceeded to our room which was big and very clean. We had a minor problem with our TV and Heather came to our room and fixed it instantly. I used the hotel computers to plan out the rest of our trip and they worked great. The next morning we had breakfast and I was very impressed with the food offered. I made my own waffle, had some sausage and potatoes and was full. There were eggs and pastries but they werent needed to fill me up. The food was very good. Two tour groups had eaten before us and instead of the bar looking like Big Foot danced through it, the bar was clean and all the food trays were full. The tables in the dining area were clean and the floor had been vacuumed. I was really impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel and the work ethics of the staff. The only negative was we had a room close to the elevator and could hear the people checking out early, but that goes with the territory. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    I usually NEVER give reviews but this hotel deserves to be commended. The staff was just awesome and helped us with restaurant selections in the area, along with super-quick service bringing us our forgotten toiletries. Also, the cleaning staff had cleaned our room early and was spotless upon our return. The beds were comfy. We had a 2Q with sofa bed. The room arrangement was perfect for us with the separate living area. The only complaint (which is minnor) was that the 2nd refrigerator wasn't very cold and that there were no microwaves in the room but we ended up not needing it anyway. The pool and hot tub were massive compared to most hotels and were very well maintained. I would definitely recommend and stay here again!

    The staff here goes out of their way to help you and make you feel welcome. Liz at the desk is the best just ask and she will do her best to accommodate you. Fresh cookies at front desk when you walk by take one or two that is what they are for. Breakfast room so clean and if you need anything ask. The cleaning staff always gives a big smile and speaks they are great . We feel so at home when we are there . That is the only place we stay when we go to the Falls. We walk to the restaurant accross the street or just down the block . The river is in walking distance if you want an evening stroll, easy access from the highway and Super Walmart is just down the road if you need anything.

    This is the first time I have ever felt I needed to leave a review for a hotel. My daughter and I spent the night here. The hotel decor is very inviting. But when when my daughter pulled back the covers to get into bed, we saw a crunched up Cheeto smashed into the sheet. Obviously, the sheets were never changed between guests. I felt disgusted. And the shower curtain strongly smelled of mildew. I don't think I would choose to stay here again.

    The bed had one of the 3 best mattresses that I have slept on in my life (!) The breakfast was fantastic. Everything seems to have been recently remodeled and clean.

    First the good, room was quite large and bed was comfortable and housekeeping kept it spotless. Breakfast was also quite tasty with plenty of variety. The downside was the location which did not appear to be the best of Idaho Falls and if it was, I don't want to go back to Idaho Falls. I will also have to admit not being very happy with the process of booking this hotel through Trip Advisor. I fell for the too good to be true advertised price of $89 a night and "only one room left at this price". Once I hit the enter key on the computer the price magically turned into $127--non-refundable. Sometimes things don't work out and this was one of those times. The Cotton Tree Inn will be OK for most people but for me there are better options.

    When I booked this hotel for 2 nights, I booked it because it was just renovated and had good reviews. After checking in, yes, the hotel looked great, the rooms look awesome and the service at the frontdesk was good. When arriving in our room, the toilet didn't flush. In fact it didn't flush at all and in no-time the water was coming in the room and hallway. We phoned the frontdesk, the nice man came upstair, but the problem was worse than he expected. Finally we turned off the running tap. But the damage was done. We were lucky there was only 1 room available, 1 king and 1 sofabed. Next day we could move to another room with 2 queen beds, but the manager? Here you got your new key and that's it..... Nothing.... The breakfast area: TOO SMALL!!! Seems that lots of buses come to this place and all buses have breakfast at the same time. Second day we wanted to have an early breakfast because we wanted to move on also. No space and no food because one of the buses guests made such a mess out of the place. These awful people got lots of food and didn't eat because they did not have any manners. I felt really sorry for the girls preparing breakfast. Since we just wanted to relax a day after traveling a couple of weeks we didn't had it in us to complain more. I was really disappointed about my stay. Luxury may look great but the look and experience are 2 different things.

    « Poor construction and layout »

    My wife and I were given a room for three nights that had an interior door to the adjacent room that had no sound dreading qualities; we could clearly hear ever noise and sound in the next room as if it was in ours. Also, we were on the second floor of a three floor structure where we could clearly hear people waling and kids running around in the hall ways and jumping around at night

    « Highly Recommend and Reasonable Price »

    We stayed at The Best Western Plus Cotton Tree Inn with our two granddaughters. The first stay was for two days and we came back again about a week later. The room was great. We stayed in a spacious suite with the bedroom separate from the living room. Very comfortable and felt more homey. The bathroom is between the bedroom and living room, with privacy pocket doors on each side. Excellent layout. Two sinks, clean bathroom, well maintained. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The full breakfast was good. The pool was larger than the usual hotel has and went to 6 ft depth - great fun. Laundry facilities were good. Staff was friendly and helpful. The location is close to the highway access, but is quiet. So if you want a place that is in the middle of fun night life, this is not the place. There are Outback and Denny's restaurants close by and a gas station across the street. For our group and situation, this was a great place for a fairly reasonable price. We highly recommend.

    « Great family place »

    We stayed with 3 children including a 1 year old and 2 year old in a regular two queen bed room. The room was large enough we had room to move around and it made it great for the kids. The pool was very kid friendly and quite large. Although there wasn't a two foot - there is a large stair area where the little ones could play around. The breakfast was amazing!! It includes bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles - all the things we never make at home. I would highly recommend this hotel to travelers with families!

    We had come from Bakersfield Calif. for a funeral for my aunt in Idaho Falls. My husband did research and found this Hotel had good ratings. Rooms nice, front desk person wasn't overly friendly, but over all a good place. It had a pool and Jacuzzi but didn't get a chance to use them. We arrived Friday afternoon, Saturday morning they have a very nice breakfast. We left the room at 10:00 a.m. maids were across the hall from us and saw us leave. We go back to our room at 2:00 p.m. and it hadn't been cleaned, not cool. Plus, I didn't see any blow dryers in the room and found out later it was hanging from a black bag in the closet. Still a pretty clean Hotel would give them another try.

    I've stayed at many Best Westerns over the years. Some are nice, some are terrible. But this particular one is exceptional in every respect.

I would certainly stay at this Best Western again and recommend it to anyone I know.

    Property check in/check out was straight forward and quick. Quality of hotel was average for price.

The rooms are a good size, are very modern and clean with new fittings and appliances. The complimentary breakfast is excellent and the staff were all lovely. Try the waffles! There's also a large indoor pool area with a small gym.

    We came in at nightfall to a full parking lot. The adjacent area is unsightly but if you already ate dinner, just park and go into hotel. Check-in was easy. The hotel as many reviewers mentioned was recently updated and were were very content with the room. My wife thought the bed was especially comfortable, the TV was able to swivel for viewing from the couch in addition to the bed. The bathroom was small but tastefully decorated in addition to the pleasing colors in the room. My only complaint is the lighting using energy efficient type lighting. I requested a quiet room away from elevator and or stairs and our wish was granted. Thank you to management for that. Oh, breakfast was a 2.5 stars out of 5. .....could be better. Overall, for the price we were happy and do plan on returning next week as we stop over on our way to our Montana property.

    We stay here 1 or 2 times a year. This is a nice hotel but plumbing can be suspect at times (e.g., our toilet flusher had completely eroded away and we had to flush by pulling up on the flap from inside the toilet tank!). But, they can/will put you on the 1st floor which is often hard to get in a BW hotel when you just show up without a reservation. Also, next door to Denny's and Outback (over-priced, methinks!).

    This property was chaotic as the entire lobby and breakfast area was completely gutted, and most common areas were difficult to navigate and congestion was the main issue. They set up various rooms to set up temporary breakfast serving stations and dining areas. It was a great job and the food quality did not suffer at all. But most importantly, the customer service was outstanding. The room was in excellent condition. Given the very extensive remodel, it should be stressed that a safe environment was projected at all times during my stay.

    The hotel is under major reconstruction mode. Workers there until 6:00 pm (they should be out sooner as guests usually are arriving by this time and need peace and quiet). Pillows very lumpy - need something more firm. Waited over 5 minutes before front desk checked us in (employee was on phone with another customer, but having worked front desk myself, ALL transactions should take no more than 2-3 minutes if you know what you are doing and type with both hands). Just when we were to check in, another phone call. I told the employee to put the phone and take care of us first. Rule #1: THE GUEST IN THE LOBBY IS ALWAYS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE ONE ON THE PHONE!!!!! The person on the phone should be put on hold while the person in front of you is taken care of. Lobby common area computer had to be reset so that I could use it. For a Best Western Plus property, this place is only so-so. I don't know how it qualifies with the Plus status. As a Diamond Member, I expect more than what I got.

    We stopped here on our way home from an extended vacation in Oklahoma, Nebraska, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. We found it very convenient after traveling through less populated areas. Idaho Falls is a good stop on the way to Boise via US 20 (Craters of the Moon), Goodales cutoff).

    The hotel was great. Check in and check out was easy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and "homey" We have 2 dogs and the hotel was very accommodating for them. The staff was helpful in recommending another hotel along our travels.

    We enjoyed our stay at the Cotton Tree Inn and would stay there again. The hotel is located in a quiet area of the city and within walking distance to several restaurants. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good.

    Motel was very clean, staff friendly and with a comfy bed. Good included breakfast and great price. We stayed on our way from SLC to Yellowstone. Pretty area and several restaurants nearby. We would stay again. Idaho Falls is a good size town we were pleasantly surprised by the town and this motel.

    I found this hotel based on pricing and location for business. I walked in and got a night stay for the best price offered. The room was clean, the internet worked GREAT, and it was close to restaurants. The breakfast offered had many options and it was good night stay. I will stay here again.

    We had to leave our home for the evening with two small grandchildren in our care and were taken care of wonderfully at this local hotel. We use Best Western most of the time we stay at a motel and are seldom disappointed. This was one of our best experiences. We recommend this motel for any kind of stay. It has a very nice pool and hot tub and the beds were very comfortable.

    We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was clean, well maintained and convenient for restaurants and local attractions. Joyce at reception was very welcoming, helpful and friendly. We had booked a suite which was spacious and had a seperate living area from the bedroom. It was fitted with fridge/freezer, toaster, micro-wave and dishwasher.This is certainly one of the best we have stayed in.

    This is a nice hotel , I have been enjoying my stay, there is always hot breakfast in the morning And the indoor pool and Jacuzzi is a plus. My favorite is the staff, Mrs ARI is very helpful and so is the rest of the staff. Would definitely recommend to a friend

    I chose this hotel because they had a large suite available - two queen beds in one room and a queen sofa bed in the living room - and it was a better deal than getting two separate rooms. We were on the 3rd floor. There is an elevator. The lobby area and pool area is very nice. The breakfast was the usual fare. Our room was clean and the amenities - shampoo, etc., were above average. Easy access to highway, and there are lots of restaurants close by. Many of the restaurants offer 10% off if you show your hotel key card.

    I stayed here with my children for one night as we traveled and I was disappointed to say the least. When we arrived the front desk lady was outside smoking and told me she would be in shortly - I waited probably 5 minutes while she finished her smoke. She was very nice - but felt this was quite unprofessional of her to finish her smoke before she takes care of a guest. We stayed in room 309; it looked like a nice room until further inspection. The floors were filthy - so bad that my kids were telling themselves to stay off the floor and play on the beds because they were not clean. I went to take a shower after my long drive and when I opened the shower curtain there was HAIR all over the tub - not just hair but pubic hair as well. Now if that wasn't enough to turn me off I happen to look at the ceiling and it is covered in BLACK MOLD!! Absolutely disgusting. So my relaxing shower turned into a quick get in get out policy. I recommend if you have very sensitive skin to stay away from the lotion that they offer in the rooms. I know better than to use this stuff - but forgot mine at home and this was the best I could do. It gave me a chemical burn on my cheeks and forehead. So bad that I spent the next night with an ice pack and neosporine on my face. Avoid using that stuff it you can. They serve breakfast in the mornings and I was told that it was a 'delux' breakfast .... Not so much. An extremely poor showing - no fruit, no yogurt, toasters were broken, and the hot plates - yeah well they were empty even after asking for more to be prepared. I was really looking forward to this hotel from all of the good reviews and I am sad to say that mine is not a good review. Only plus to this stay - close to the interstate and the bed was half way comfy.

    Stayed there on a road trip, arrived later in the evening after a long day, quick check in, and although the hotel was full there was no disturbances and the rooms were a good size, clean and quiet. I would use the hotel again if I am in the area

    Updated rooms, friendly staff, Breakfast was very good, Close to the interstate. Close to restaurants and lounges. The idaho falls are within five minutes driving and are well worth seeing. We would definitely stay here again.
