Conveniently located across from lovely Payette Lake and near the public beach, these bungalow cabins are within walking distance of restaurants and downtown shopping. Each cabin, which can accommodate two to fourteen people, features a knotty pine or log interior. All of the cabins are fully furnished including cable TV/VCR's, bedding, towels, a kitchen, or kitchenette with a coffee pot, and cooking and eating utensils, while some offer fireplaces, and ceiling fans. Barbeque grills, picnic tables, and laundry facilities are also available.
My husband and I stayed at the Brundage Bungalows for two nights for our anniversary. We looked at pictures on the internet before we booked this place so we knew that the bungalows were by no means a four star hotel. The location is very convenient, we parked our car and biked everywhere we went. They are a very short distance from the public beach and are right on busy Lake Street, so I can understand why people would complain about the traffic noise. (the noise however, didn't bother us) We stayed in cabin #1 which is very small and cozy and is right above the laundry room. This is the only cabin with a nice deck and a patio table and chairs. We liked the small kitchen and we took advantage of the gas grill that was available. Everything seemed OK until we decided to go to bed. When we sat on the bed, we nearly sunk to the floor! The mattress is extremely poor quality and we hardly slept at all. We considered going to a different hotel for the second night or even purchasing an air mattress, but we didn't want to spend any more money, so we suffered through a second night on that awful mattress. We will not be staying at the Brundage Bungalows again.
Bungalow #1 is fine if you're 3-1/2ft. tall and like having a laundry room below. We tried staying there until 10:30pm before the ants ran us out. The lady wasn't happy for me calling her that night. She kept saying it was mud season and ants were to be expected. After we got keys for a different bungalow the comment "I'm going back to bed now." Making us feel like crap. She put us in bungalow 6 which was great once all the spiders got killed and some of the dishes were cleaned after the last people put them back in the cupboard dirty. Kind of funny considering we didn't find 1 ant in #6 for two days. They put us in #6 for no additional charge. Room #1 is over priced for what it is.
These bungalows are cute and rustic as well as inexpensive. We enjoyed not being bothered by maids or staff. We will be sure to chose Brundage Inn, bungalows and vacation cabins for our next adventure in McCall.
After checking out their website, we were not expecting luxury accomodations but we were also not expecting to spend a sleepless night. As there is no air conditioning, the window had to be open all night. Even with the open window and the box fan, we roasted and the truck noise from the highway was very loud all night long.
We were in the last room at the end of the motel, in the front, and the floor sloped to the side, the television did not work properly, the toilet did not flush properly, and their were bugs in our room.
After one night, we moved to another motel in town. I would never, never stay there again.
The Brundage Inn is conveniently located off off hwy 55 as you arrive in town. Problem is that your room is 20 feet from the road and in the summer there are trucks passing by your room 24/7. I felt that the hotel had a nice rustic flair and the room was fairly nice. There is no air conditioning in the summer. They do provide a box fan. The service was not as expected for the price tag. The room was not ready on arrival with a one week in advance reservation. They boast that the Inn is the closest to Brundage mountain. I guess that justified the price tag.
