"Everything I was looking for"
Nothing is worse than booking a motel only to find out that the room was dirty, or that you don't feel "at home." This motel was everything I was hoping for. The room was clean enough that I felt fine having my 3 and 1 year-olds run around, crawl around, and do what babies do. The staff members were great, the breakfast had a nice selection and was […] a good quality, and everything about the motel was great. I will definitely stay here again, and am planning on it actually. Wish I would have had time to access the footbridge to cross the river and get a good run in on the trail which parallels the motel.

"Perfect for our needs!"
A friend and I needed a place to stay between Salt Lake City and West Yellowstone. This hotel was perfect for us. The staff was super friendly and the free breakfast was a nice touch. It was also nice having access to the private bridge to walk to the river! If I ever need a hotel in that area again, this will be the first place I look!Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice clean, comfortable and price right place. Breakfast was excellant too. We enjoyed our stay so much - on our return through the area we stayed there again. If back in the area we will definately try and stay at Le RitzGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient in Idaho Falls"
Located right in the heart of the hotels'n'restaurants section of town, immediately adjacent to the eponymous Idaho Falls and short drive from Idaho National Laboratory, Le Ritz is like a perfected Best Western. You don't expect many amenities at the price, and so will be pleasantly surprised by things like the 24-hour pool and gym (sure to delight […] odd-hours exercise buffs) and the free wired+wireless Internet (even if it kept resetting my Wi-Fi frequently...) Pluses include a (empty) fridge and microwave; minuses include a vintage CRT TV that will have you squinting at letterboxed ESPN (at least you're seeing all of the widescreen image?). I must say that the bed and pillows were more than adequate, beating some hotels I've paid twice the price for in other towns. My only real concern was some ominous spots of mold on the shower grout -- I comment carded this and hope that maintenance jumps on it quickly for everyone's sake. No one would mistake this for the Ritz-Carlton, but from the friendly greeting to the free continental buffet I found myself often impressed by Le Ritz's commitment to hospitality. Good value for the money, I'd say. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"fabulous hot breakfast close to all freeway access"
as always, my family stays at the Le Ritz....we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. however, this was the first time that i've walked into a room to find a hair or two in the bathtub and one twisted around the tub nozzle plus there was no shampoo. as i said, we've stayed at this particular location at least twice a year for the past 5 years. so, […] if these tiny details don't bother you too much, then don't hesitate to stay here. we'll definitely return next spring!!!!

"A bit overpriced for what you get"
I payed almost $100 to stay in a hard bed for 6 hours. I got to town after 1:00am and was hoping to stay that NIGHT, but the front desk person told me that would be considered 2 nights?!?! Whatever, I'll never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the way home"
Hotel was very nice and the rooms were clean and attractive. The hot breakfast however was terrible and uneatable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was not as clean as should be, their house keeping manager needs to visit the rooms more often, but other then that good stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Location for our needs"
We were very happy with the hotel. Bed was very comfortable. Room was quiet. The free breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
What a beautiful motel! The staff is wonderful and the location is just steps from the river and a short walk to the falls. Good restaurants in walking distance. But the motel itself is elegant. WiFi was easy to access. Highly recommend this place. I might make a trip back to Idaho Falls just to stay here and enjoy the surroundings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic hotel and service!"
The staff were wonderful and super accommodating. They were responsive and pleasant and helped us with whatever we needed. Breakfast was good, but they stopped putting out food a bit early when we arrived within 30 minutes of the end time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel close to beautiful green belt"
This hotel had everthing we needed -- clean, comfy room, fridge, microwave and free breakfast. The breakfast included hot food--waffles, eggs, biscuits and gravy. It was located conveniently off the highway and had a beautiful view of the LDS Temple across the river. There is a nice walking path along the river, too, which you can access from the hotel. […] We were very pleased with this place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable place to stay."
Rooms were spacious and clean, but a bit dated. Plan on staying here again when we visit Idaho Falls.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were not cleaned properly, or when they should have been. Requested river view, hotel blamed it on the company we booked it through. Old, it needs work and better cleaners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable. Breakfast was good. Staff friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to the Falls in Idaho."
The hotel was very clean, the front desk people and housekeeping were very nice. The room and bathroom very clean. I would definitely book there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would be 5 Star, but......"
Got a room overlooking the canal and river - very nice. Check-in, and hotel staff - very good. Overall amenities for a hotel like this - very good. But - the water pressure and flow in the shower was weak (similar to nearly every hotel we visited in Wyoming and Idaho), and the breakfast was Comfort-Inn-like - mediocre scrambled eggs from a bag or box, […] and minimal flavor and sausage in in the gravy for the biscuits and gravy. Bonus feature though - the Sandpiper Restaurant next door is excellent for Supper. Eat outside on the patio, and get the prime rib....... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and clean"
Average room but good for the price. Just stayed one night. Clean but not fancy. No fruit with breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was clean, up-to-date, and spacious with a comfortable king bed, microwave and frig, TV, large desk, and comfortable upholstered chair and ottoman. Free breakfast was larger buffet than the usual free type. Internet wifi was erratic and weak, so when I called the front desk she provided a free cable for a fixed connection that worked. Room […] overlooked the river, but since we were only there overnight, the view probably wasn't worth the extra charge for it. Overall a good value for the price thru expedia.

"Close to airport. Very quiet."
No complaints. Roomy, clean, close to airport, food, Walmart (for hiking supplies). We used this as a starting point for our Yellowstone/Grand Teton trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean, comfortable - it's OK"
WiFi didn't work well, room could use a makeover, shower head was fine if you're under 5' tall. Very clean, nice staff, great breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Super. Will definitely go back when in the Idaho Falls area or anywhere within 30 miles or so. Breakfast is great!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel, not so great neighborhood."
The title says it all. If they moved 1 mile south they would be better off.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, quiet...location not in high traffic area but in low traffic business district; friendly accommodating staff; excellent serve-yourself breakfast in spacious lobby/common area 6:00-10:00 a.m. A reviewer said breakfast was not good, which makes us wonder what they expected. We ate 9:00 with no shortages of food items, no waiting in self serve line, […] &adequate seating. Staff continually restocking buffet choices, cleaning tables, counters, spills, etc. Many choices including oatmeal, biscuits wi sausage gravy, cook your own belgian waffles wi toppings; yogurt &toppings,e.g. raisins, granola,brown sugar;hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, home baked pastries, tropical fruit (canned) & fresh apples, oranges, bananas, home baked pastries, varied cold cereal choices, coffee, cocoa, milk, juices....sure they don't have bacon, ham, or sausage links nor do they have a menu or wait staff, but neither was there any question about what you would be getting or waiting to be served. If looking for fine dining at breakfast go to a restaurant & pay price for that experience. The is a nonsmoking hotel, however they do have 2 smoking rooms for those who can't control their addiction. When you check in tell them you don't want to be near the smoking area. They will accommodate your request. Initially given a room next to smoking with typical musty some odor, but they happily gave us different room. Upscale furnishings, good water pressure & plenty of hot. Great value for cost. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice stop and sightseeing"
Had a situation with one bed but otherwise, everything was great. Good breakfast which had something for everyone. Very friendly. Even ran out to take out picture with the deer statutes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"all good except the pillows"
beautiful lobby, good location, friendly staff. But pillows are bad - out of 4, couldn't find one I liked. and the bed is just ok. Breakfast was great - couldn't ask for more (for free). Got the room for a really great price - great place to use as a launch pad to go to Yellowstone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No wonder there were no cars in the parking lot..."
In my 40 odd years of traveling, I would be hard pressed to remember a hotel experience worse than Le Ritz. When we registered, we were told there was no water on at the hotel. Maybe it would be on in an hour or so. We went next door to the Hilton and used their facilities. When we did get our room, on a floor facing a river view (for which we had paid […] substantially more), there was a big hole in the lawn covered by torn cardboard, caution tape and warning cones surrounding it. What a view. The furniture was so threadworn that the white fabric under the black leather was showing through. The bedspread was old with disgusting stains. An old 19" tube TV sat in an enormous armoire. Eventually they moved us. Not to a better room, but to another room without a hole, but with black debris inside the bed sheets and more stains on the bedding. A hideous, dated hotel with staff that didn't care much about guests. Great neighborhood. The bed was comfortable, if you could get past the black stuff in the sheets. Recommend you pass this one up, no matter what the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A better choice of hotel"
First off, the COFFEE is really good! The bed (in our room anyway) was NOT what was advertised - it WAS NOT a 'pillow top" mattress - hence it WAS NOT a comfortable rest. But...the COFFEE WAS REALLY GOOD!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on Snake River, across from LDS Temple."
Needed a nice place to stay in Idaho Falls while on retracing our honeymoon trip of 50 years ago.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel by water"
We were there only a short time. It is located by some falls. It is near a nice walking/biking path. There were many items offered at breakfast and the quality was decent. For the price, the hotel was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not that impressive..."
Our room was only OK. The bed wasn't that comfortable, pillows were flat and uncomfortable. While the exterior and the lobby were very nice, I was disappointed with the room and old television.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a bad choice - Good Value for Dollar"
Nice water pressure in the shower! Clean Room. Disappointed in breakfast. There were no hot meat items, but otherwise it was fine, just lots of carbs and not so many protein choices.Genuine Expedia guest review
We checked in to Le Ritz just for 1 night on our way to Yellowstone. It was a disappointing stay, the room where we stayed smelled musty. The cleanliness of the bathrooms is another disappointment :( The WI-FI connection was terrible. The positive side during our stay was that their staff was pleasant and their breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, Good location"
The hotel is close to the falls and located in a decent and safe area. There are a couple restaurants within walking distance, but most you will have to drive to. Good choices for breakfast. I always appreciate having a hot breakfast versus a continental breakfast. Nice pool and decent business center with a very good connection to the Internet. I checked […] out reviews on several hotels in the area before deciding on Le Ritz Hotel and Suites and I was glad that I chose this hotel. I would definitely stay there again, if I was in the area.

"Not what you see in the pictures"
First and most importantly, the room smelled very badly. Strong mildew odors are the best we could determine. The room looked nothing like the pictures. We were going to change rooms but it seemed pointless because we smelled the same thing in the hallways around the room we were in and several doors down. The beds seemed smaller than Queen-size even […] though the front lobby assured us they were Queens. Anyhow, they were the smallest Queens we had ever slept in and that is what we have in our bed room at home. Friends down the hall that we were vacationing with agreed to all of these issues in their own room and they even upgraded to a new room because of the same frustrations. They had to pay for the upgrade which I thought was in bad taste by the hotel management and we refused to have to do so ourselves, therefore we just dealt with the shabbiness of the room we received. Finally, they need to patrol the pool area a little more often. Very disrespectful young adults were making our pool time with our kids very unpleasant. I will not plan to ever stay at the Le Ritz again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Idaho Falls stopover"
We were just passing through Idaho Falls after a trip to Montana. Pretty slow check in. We were put in a non-smoking room that smelled terribly like smoke. I went back to the front desk and the front desk person put us in a new room that was terrific. Appreciate the effort to make us happy with our room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very friendly atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and eager to please. Staff members greet us, not just in the main lobby, but in all areas of the hotel. We appreciate the non-smoking rooms, and for those guests who have pets, they are allowed in certain rooms. There are guest laundry facilities, a pool, spa, and exercise room. There is also an outdoor […] walking area overlooking the beautiful Snake River and Idaho Falls LDS Temple. The breakfast each morning is terrific--waffles, cereal, sweet rolls, eggs, bacon, fruit, juices, coffee, and hot chocolate. We will definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First stay at Le Ritz."
The beds were very soft, no support and bedding kept shifting around all night because the mattress pads had nothing to anchor them to the mattress. The pillows were to small and lumpy. On the plus side, the hotel was quiet. The staff was friendly and courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel - nice amenities - wonderful staff"
We loved this place -- unexpected for the amenities, etc. We only had overnight so were delighed to find the Sandpiper Restaurant basically in the corner of the parking lot - excellent food. Nice full breakfast buffet the next morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Granddaughter loved the pool. It was behind the lobby and away from the rooms so it was a bit of a walk but the noise from the pool did not reach the rooms. Good hot breakfast close to River walk, very clean and comfortable room. Well worth the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very warm welcome!"
We were very appreciative of the warm welcome, cheerful service and the amazing breakfast buffet!!! Definitely beats other chain hotel continental breakfasts hands down!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
