After being on the road for almost a month, it was nice to stay in a place where I could make my own meals and not have to deal with housekeeping every morning. (Housekeeping is provided for stays over one week - but if you need anything changed, washed or replaced before then, just ask at the front and they’ll take care of you). I thoroughly enjoyed my bright room which included a queen size bed (very comfortable with awesome linens), an open kitchen which featured a full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, two burner stove, dishwasher and all utensils, dishes, glasses, cups, pots, pans and cleaning supplies. The bathroom was modern and had a nice deep soaking tub/shower combo. A closet and dresser provided plenty of storage and a desk with two chairs proved quite efficient. Laundry facilities are free (either bring your own detergent or it’s available for $1.50). There is also a very nice gym with modern equipment. The common areas and hallways are kept spotless - I felt I was ‘living’ in an upscale apartment building. The location is right on the Snake River and the Snake River Greenbelt runs right alongside the hotel - it’s a lovely 15 minute walk to downtown. The staff here is incredibly professional and friendly especially Chey and Britt who both took time to chat with me and truly made me feel at home.
We payed an upgrade and got a view of a industrial park a ND a train blowing it's horn at 5 am an at 6:30? Nice room but should have gotten a River view? The people that stay are construction workers so be ready.
