Day one of this route is always a bit boring. Driving from Bonners Ferry to Pocatello is about an 8 or 9 hour haul. It’s long……it’s boring….. Yesterday the only thing that added a bit of excitement for us was the weather. We had snow, rain, wind, sunshine…..
First night out was booked through Priceline and we landed at the Clarion. It was rated as a 3 star hotel and I got it for $39. I felt pretty good about a 3 star hotel for $39…….until we arrived. The Clarion in Pocatello is NOT what I would class a 3 star hotel. It was OK, but it’s in major need of an upgrade and a good cleaning in the corners. I read the reviews and they looked safe enough. It was acceptable, but I wouldn’t go back.
