Had river view with balcony. So great, had to stay an extra night. Should not be missed if traveling in the area. Had several casino areas on the property which added to our enjoyment. Great golf course right down the highway. Only 9 holes, but a par 36 so different tee positions for doing 18 holes. Perfect greens.

Don't ever stay in the Kootenai Falls Lodge section of this hotel. Always ask for riverview with a balcony. The freight train runs every 30 minutes and blows his horn at the unmarked crossing across the road from the hotel. For some reason you cannot hear the freight train in the riverview section at night time.

Right on the Kootenai river, good food, good entertainment, comfortable beds, nice private balconies overlooking the river. Well insulated for noise so you get a good nights sleep, nice modern bathrooms.

I liked the hotel overall but service at the restaurant was not so good. Took forever to be initially served and I had to ask who was our server or we would've waited even longer. Service for the hotel was excellent.

Coming from a 3 day tour of Couer d'Alene & Spokane, this was our final stop before heading home. I haven't stayed anywhere else in Bonner's, so this is the go-to place. Handy to have the casino on-site. It has Canadian and American $$ machines. This time we didn't have any CDN $$ so found it a bit inconvenient on the limitations on what I could play. Breakfast is always good. View of the river is very nice. Highly recommend staying on the river side as the train track is very close by on the other side of the hotel and goes throughout the night. I wear earplugs but can still hear it. Walk across the street (through the tunnel) and visit the pubs and Heart Rock Wines.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a casino. When you signed in with them, They gave a $10 free play slip for first time players. I used it and won a little as I stopped playing when I doubled my money I had put up. We stayed here because of its location and it had 3 stars in the AAA book we had. It didn't disappoint.

This is a great hotel with a casino as a plus. The check-in process was very easy and the people were very friendly. The hotel rooms were very clean and they were quiet. The beds are very comfortable. There is a large pool and hot tub that was nice. I loved the idea of the casino and it was nice. One of the casino rooms is non smoking. You are also close to Canada and the area is beautiful. We did go to Cranbrook, BC to the Harley dealer.

Love this hotel and the area The view is great. The hotel has great food. Mugsys is another great place to eat and is within walking distance. Also the Badgers Den which is just a few miles away has an excellent breakfast.

Will definitely come back. Very nice rooms, everything worked will, including Wi-Fi. Food was very good. The surrounding Bonners Ferry community has done a great job of making itself attractive to tourist.

Hotel is very well kept. Guest room was awesome. Price was great for what you get. I will stay here anytime. Pool and hot tub are nice. Restaurant was great. Wait staff could have been a little better. View is nice.
