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....

Dear MtDoug, Thank you for writing a review on our hotel. Our goal is to deliver exceptional service and comfortable accommodations, and we appreciate your business with us. However, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the noise challenges from the highway and the breakfast hours may have caused you. It is certainly not our intent to inconvenience our valued guests...

Hotel was clean and rather new, and modern. Beds comfortable, and breakfast pretty standard. Hotel shares a parking lot with a very popular family/sports restaurant and on our stay it was hard to find a parking spot. There where 3 truck/trailers parked in the parking lot, along with a packed restaurant, it meant finding a spot for guest was difficult....

We stayed in Ponderey, Idaho in September 2016. Great hotel with super staff and a clean, well managed hotel. Breakfast was very complete and juice and coffee were available 24/7. Denise, at the front desk, was professional, knowledgeable, and very personable. A real jewel!!

Gotta say I'm a bit disappointed as we are fairly frequent guests to HIE's. The bldg & room are nice and clean. If you are going N on 95 you have to make U turn in order to get into the hotel - at night finding the correct driveway might be a challenge. The first driveway is to private property/gravel...
