This is our second stay in two years, and this HIE is much better than average. Logan was very helpful and accommodating at check in. Our room was comfortable and clean, with an amazing view of the little valley and stream behind it, complete with two horses that wander about enjoying their home. Also saw five deer and two geese...

This hotel is very close to the Schweitzer mountain shuttle pick up. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. Free hot breakfast was pretty good. They have a decent indoor hot tub and pool. They lack on parking possibly because they share a parking lot with a restaurant/bar? Their "workout" room was dinky. One treadmill, elliptical and...

I stayed here for a business trip for three nights. It is the newest business traveler type hotel in the area. I have stayed at the others include BW and LaQuinta. This is the nicest and the second time I have stayed here. The location is decent but it is outside of Sandpoint by a couple of miles. There is...

Pro: larger rooms, pool warm (not polar bear temperature), staff very helpful & friendly, check in & out efficient, breakfast items hot & fresh, microwave & frig in room Cons: two 4 story buildings connected & only 1 elevator which always meant waiting a LONG time to use it, spots on carpet, but otherwise very clean, convenient location

My honey and I fell in love with this Holiday Inn last year and returned again this past weekend. Nicest people, clean suites, excellent breakfast and most important to us is they allow dogs. We have 2 golden retrievers and this lace is perfect for them. We also love the fact we can get to Schweitzer in 15 minutes! See...

This property serves the value niche very well. Rooms are decently appointed (although the bedding was a bit tired); free breakfast meets the standards of this price point, and there is a Keurig coffee maker in the room. (Almost worth one point by itself) The location is a bit of the track for Sandpoint but perfect for the ski area....

Stayed here in September of 2015, lodging is nice clean and helpful, average price and in a nice area. Breakfast in the AM is good, and if price is not an issue this is worth staying, right off hwy 93 easy to get to.

I booked this room online as Sandpoint was an ideal spot to break our journey and HIE properties are usually good. We had a room at the back of the hotel away from the busy highway. Unfortunately it was closer to the railroad tracks! It seemed as though the trains went passed every hour with whistles blowing and track noise....
