Pretty Good

Made a trip up to Rexburg,ID to drop off my nephew at BYU-Idaho and ended up staying here. Nice rooms, need updating but clean. Had a great view of the Snake River falls. Decent continental breakfast, need better coffee! Overall good experience.

Never Again

Ok, it it's not very likely that I'll be in Idaho Falls again but if it should occur it will not involve this hotel again. Just one example, with the bath tub and the swing both running hot water full out it took more than 5 minutes for it to get hot.

Good Value

pleasant staff, clean room but their was a lipstick stain on the bed. There were also beer caps on the ceiling. Other than that room was clean, good size, comfy bed. Breakfast in restaurant was good but complimentary continental breakfast was poor quality.

Do not be fooled by name

This is a motel, a very old motel. The smell of room is bad. However, the location is just next to the Snake River and the Fall,

Suited Our Need

Hotel on the Falls is situated next to a nice trail that parallels the falls. We were booked into a one-bed room, which the clerk readily switched to a two-bed room, located in the "other" building. This room was small, with a shabby feel, and the a/c didn't work. When I called the front desk, the clerk quickly offered a repair or a move to yet another room, in "the tower". I opted for the room change. The ground floor room was nicely appointed for wheelchair access (which I didn't need, but appreciated that it really was wheelchair accessible, and not just pretending to be) and, while not luxurious, was clean and spacious. I was within walking distance of several eating establishments. While in Idaho Falls, I was struck by the niceness of the natives. Cars not only didn't honk, but they actually stopped to let pedestrians cross. I loved being able to walk by the falls in the cool of the morning. The tower of Hotel by the Falls makes a great reference point, too, when moving around Idaho Falls. I never felt "lost". While the hotel is not new, the staff is very accommodating. I would have liked the convenience of an on-site breakfast, but the walk by the falls more than compensated.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

Called hotel and told them my mother has a hard time walking and would like to be close to an enterance. They stuck us on the 2nd floor halfway distance. When I went to complain to [...] the manager they said they were booked and no other rooms were available. Did not care about elderly people at all. My mother took 15 minutes to get up the stairs and another 10 min to walk to the room. No ice machine close. Staff unworkable. They would not open both gates to the swimming pool. Room was alright. Will never stay at the Red Lion ever again.
