Buhl is hardly the hub of Idaho so there aren't a lot of choices, but the Oregon Trail is a good one. It is an older establishment, but very well maintained, and clean; towels, sheets, carpets, in a large, large, room. Buhl isn't a large town so all the eateries are within walking distance from the Oregon Trail. The WiFi...

We stayed here on our trip to Idaho Falls and loved it. Place is super clean, quaint , and very friendly. The office has fantastic coffee as well as light breakfast options. Just a great stay. I would highly recommend this establishment in every way possible.

This was a rustic place with rooms separate from the lobby, like cabins. It was very clean, but for me, a little tough to maneuver, since I have MS and the floors were somewhat uneven. This gave me an unsteady 3. Complimentary breakfast was small, and the breakfast room was in a small lobby with room for only two. There...

Our room was very large, clean and comfortable. It is the old-fashioned strip motel, so you can drive right up to your door. The room was large with two large comfortable beds, a small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was plenty large with a good tub/shower and ample lighting. The towels were good-sized. Breakfast in the morning was in the...

Buhl is small city outside Twin Falls, a great alternative to relax, and very affordable. Parking is available right outside the room door. I believe its the owners who man the lobby, they are very friendly. They also have a good free breakfast with lots of pasties and doughnuts, coffee etc. The rooms are large too,

The rooms are all updated with nice furniture and comfy, double sheeted beds.The room and entire property were very clean, well maintained AND quiet! And they allow dogs!

“I would imagine all the rooms are of equal quality. I was concerned that our room would be noisy because of its proximity to the road, but it was quiet and peaceful. The room next to ours was occupied by a couple with a small child and we didn't hear a peep all night. If mattress firmness is a concern, they do have options (if you ask ahead of time). The clerk inquired whether we'd like a soft or firm bed, and I chose soft. So the room at the end nearest the road has a wonderfully soft bed.”
