Nice indoor pool and workout room. Decent bar and restaurant. Location was good but halls were too dark. Great price but the stink from smoking in the casino was not pleasant near the lobby at check in. Clean rooms with lots of space but I stay in hotels 60 to 75 nights a year. This had to be one of the most uncomfortable beds I've had in years.

Average hotel room. Size was nice but there were issues with the TV and Sliding glass doors in room. Staff were helpful, but it seems like there needs to be some changes in order to prevent the problems in the first place

Overall a good experience. The hotel was clean and pleasing. The hotel staff was professional and courteous. The negative was dinner in the restaurant. The deli food was better. The bed was also not to my husband’s liking.

Stayed here for one night as husband and I were passing through the area. We stayed in the lodge side as opposed to taking a river view. The Lodge rooms are newer and quite spacious. walk in shower is great and even offers robes.. amenities not usually offered by hotels in this price range. What a nice surprise! Restaurant was better than I expected also! Our server Reina was great. Kind and attentive. All together the cleanliness and amenities were all above average and at a very reasonable price. I won't hesitate to stay here again if we are in town.

The staff were very helpful. The food was good and the rooms were very clean. I will definately stay there on my next trip out..... I like the idea of a smoking and non-smoking Casino area. Many thanks.

Best place regarding it's value to stay for work off season. Off season price works w/ the per diem we are paid & the amenities are great. Easy access to restaurants, both in house & just across the highway in downtown Bonners Ferry.

The view is awesome but do not stay on the ground floor as they will put a family with a running child to wake you up at 0630 am . Also, ground floor rooms are home to dogs. Wife found a live tick on her pillow. Dogs everwhere. It migh be better upstairs.

We have emailed them twice and they never respond, we are having our 45th wedding anniversary and asked them a few questions, but they never respond? So, we are booking at another similar Idaho casino that did respond. Amazing! Their website Sounds like they care. But it is symbolism over substance!

Clean comfortable large room. We watched a bald eagle catch and eat a fish from the river below balcony. Beautiful views. Lots of parking. Delicious meal and fantastic service in their restaurant. Best complimentary breakfast I have ever had.

Nice typical best western quality. Great staff and an above average restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. For a casino, they do a very nice job of isolating the smokers from the hotel. I booked a king suite here (room 223 - three moon suite ) because i was fascinated that a best western had a room for over $400 with taxes. i just had to see this because it is literally a hundred dollars more than the best suite we've ever been in in a BW. The room was very nice with a separate sitting room, a wet bar, and two bathrooms. The balcony was good with a nice view over the river. That being said, it was not a $400 room versus other similar set ups either in BW or other hotels. As a benchmark, the marriott in richland crown point was $260 for an identical set up including a river view. At $300, this room is about right but not at $400
