The Inn was close to an event I was attending & was reasonably priced. The staff that we interacted with were all helpful & friendly. The room (2 queen beds) was surprisingly spacious. The beds were comfortable & we had a variety of pillows to choose from. The free continental breakfast had a decent variety of the usual fare. A few things to note in case it matters to you: 1. Our AC/heater unit started making quite a racket after having been on for an extended time during the night. I finally just shut it off entirely. 2. We were given the choice of a "River View" room, which was no extra charge, so that's what we chose. However, our room was on the ground floor, and while technically facing the direction of the river, the parking lot was our actual view. You'll need a room higher up for a true "scenic" view. 3. People coming/going from the hotel at all hours (that's how travel goes), but the issue comes from them locking/unlocking their vehicles repeatedly - so the horns are honking with each press of the keyfob. Also, because it was winter weather when we visited, many people would start their vehicles to warm them up - some as early as 4 a.m. Several diesel trucks roared to a start & sat idling for long periods of time, right outside our room. There seems to be little to no noise barrier; the noise comes in freely through the window & door (both were closed.) 4. Around 9:00 a.m., a maid had music/video blasting from her phone. She did turn it off when I asked.

Very clean. A lot of nice things, like a laundry available, a place to put soap and a bathroom bag in the bathroom, really nice TV channels, a great location, restaurants within walking distance, very well kept gardens. Very impressed. Someone is paying attention to the details.

I felt the pictures of the facility were misleading. I was not expecting a motel with doors opening to the parking lot. There was only one picture from a distance that I might have been able to determine that ahead of time. However, the staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast including the eggs made to order was great.

Clean, comfortable and quiet.

The Driftwood is a very nice place to stay. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Although I was in the ground floor facing the street, it was very quiet. It is in a convenient location. I will be staying there again.

Free breakfast included a real person making an omelet or scrambled eggs. An excellent location next to the riverwalk by the snake river, not to far from the fireworks. Around 109 miles from West Yellowstone, one gets a nice room and a larger room for a better price.

Pros: This hotel is right across from the river. There is a beautiful paved path to walk along the river and view the falls and garden.
We had a wonderful stay even though it was just for one night.

Tremendous service

Pros: The peace an quiet of the rooms, couldn't hear anything and the hotel was full!
Cons: Parking, there is not enough parking for the amount of rooms, somehow you should limit the cars to one per room, the extra cars should street park
when we arrived the lady at the reception desk tried to accommodate my handicap every which way she could, showed my husband several rooms to see if they would work and we settled on one that was fantastic! So clean and attractive, we had a great stay, wish it could have been longer but we are from Spokane, and the trip to Idaho Falls was just for a one night concert to see Ethan Bortnick which was incredible! But had to get back home to work. Breakfast was great, and the lady doing the cooking was wonderful, and took good care of everyone, and very efficient.
