Oregon Trail Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We love staying at Oregon Trail Inn. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to accommodate the guests needs. The beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. We look forward to breakfast when we stay. Three different blends of coffee or a wide selection of teas to start with. Then a selection of fruit, yogurt, waffles, fresh breads and muffins to choose from. If you need a suggestion for a local restaurant, just ask. They have never steered us wrong. We have stayed here multiple times and have always been very pleased with the Oregon Trail Inn.

I had a business reason to be in the Buhl area and found this hotel to me more convenient and lower in cost than the chains in Twin Falls.

Nice place to stay! Friendly staff, good breakfast.

What a pleasant surprise! I loved this place. Otherwise was super clean and the staff was very friendly. It was a wonderful old school motel.

Planned to stop in Twin Falls, but found this gem online. It's an old-fashioned highway motel, but with modern improvements. Clean, quiet, a great breakfast, and you can park your car right by the door of your room. Staff was fantastic and if you go there, eat at the Mexican restaurant La Plata. Plus, it's a nice drive back to I-84 via Highway 30. Stay here!

The Inn was located were we needed to be for the wedding reception and close to family. Have stayed there before.

I was pleasantly surprised that the room was better than I expected from the outside appearance and the town size and location. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the WiFi was good enough to stream a movie on my i-pad without problems, the amenities were good for this location and size of hotel. The staff was very friendly and it was right next to a few restaurants that were within walking distance. The breakfast was small and very limited, but it fit what I expected it to be with the type of hotel this was. I chose this hotel because it was close to my destination in Twin Falls and was the right price for me. All the hotels in Twin Falls were a little too much in price. I would stay here again.

Nothing fancy, but very adequate for a one night stay. Friendly efficient staff. Worst part was the bed was very noisy, creaking with every movement. There was a holder on the wall for a hair dryer, but it was not there. The important things were though, microwave, fridge, TV, dining table & chairs, ironing board & iron. Room was also nice & clean and the A/C worked well.

Fairly good location near the center of town, but that is about all I can say. The room was large, but sparcely furnished and the bed uncomfortable. Bathroom was very small and not at all user friendly. In the fifty plus yers I have been staying in motels, this is the absolute first one ever that did not have an ice machine!. I would not be inclined to stay here again, or to recommend it.

I was pleasantly surprised. Fairly standard room however it was very clean and excellently maintained. It is obvious that whoever maintains this place takes pride in their job.

A great place to stay. We were only there one night but would have loved to stay longer to explore the area. The owners were most helpful with driving directions. They presented a simple but nutritious breakfast. Be sure to try the local butter on toast !! The room could not have been any cleaner. A great pace to stay.
