  • 10.0

    I've been staying at the Driftwood for years - discovered it quite by accident when going to look at Idaho Falls which is right outside the door with a great walking trail. I come back again and again. The rooms are always comfortable, everything is as it should be. The heater always works, or the air conditioner always works. Lots of hot water, super comfy beds and nice linens, and good breakfast quality. The front desk personnel have always been super nice and helpful. I can always park my car right outside my door, and I feel a little extra security with that. I have never had a bad experience there, and I CAN'T THINK OF ONE NEGATIVE THING ABOUT THE DRIFTWOOD. Perfection!

    Can't think of one thing. Really!!

  • 7.4

    Great location.

    Area to eat breakfast was poor, there was no where to sit.

  • 10.0

    There was nothing to dislike- the bed was perfect. Our room was just like the description. The made to order omelette was very yummy. They even let you borrow bicycles to ride along the snake river just outside the hotel!

    Nothing

  • 10.0

    loved all of it

    nothing i didnt like

  • 3.8

    Location, spacious room, comfortable bed (pillows were not), two COMFORTABLE chairs, generous sized table/desk. Glass coffee mugs!!

    Made reservations via Booked.net for girls weekend (Fri & Sat nights). At 12:08pm Sat, received call on cell phone from BWDI. The young lady rudely informed me we needed to vacate the room immediately. Unable to rectify the situation via the phone, we left the Museum of Idaho and returned to BWDI. Presented printed confirmation of the two night reservation, was told she would "fix" it. Returned 5 hours later. Room had not been cleaned (never was cleaned) Had to track down cleaning staff to get fresh towels. Had to go to the office to get coffee packs for the morning. A bit after 9pm Sat night, two young men unlocked the door to our room using key cards. They said that it had been the 2nd time that night they had been given key cards to an occupied room. Subsequently went to the office, was told the manager would meet with me on Sunday. Did NOT happen. At checkout had to present the reservation paperwork again to get the correct rate. BWDI ultimately honored the reservation rate with a $10 discount for our troubles. TV was snowy. Less than a foot clearance on right side of one queen bed, slightly more on the left of the other. Pillows were small and very thick. No privacy glass on one pane in the bathroom. Trash receptacles did not have bag liners.

  • 8.8

    Great breakfast, excellent choices, omelette bar, quick and efficient foodservice staff, good quality food

    Everything was good

  • 10.0

    Our bed was very comfortable. The bedding was nice and everything was clean. The breakfast was surprisingly good. There were a variety of choices, hot and cold. The maids were very accomodating and friendly. Our room had a fantastic view of the river. We could sit in bed and watch it flow.

    The roll-away bed was so so so so so so bad. We went to walmart to buy a blow-up bed instead. We couldn't even sleep on it!
