Good for the money

Rooms were clean enough. The hotel is run down and old school but for the price it's not too bad.

Ok for the price

Hotel was priced right for what you get. Room was clean. Hotel definitely needs to be updated, it's pretty old school. Not impressed but not unsatisfied. Good place if just passing through for a night.

perfectly comfortable and convenient

We have stayed here before and the new management is really updating and cleaning it up. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the location is great with the greenbelt along the river right outside the back door. The indoor pool and sauna are a treat as well as the breakfast. We'll stay here again. Dog friendly too.

Boise 2014

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel it was much better than I imagined. The location was nearby everything I needed, including a Joe's Crab Shack and the main arterial roads. The front desk staff were very nice and cheerful.

Great Stay in Boise

Wonderful stay at great location right on the river! Nice indoor pool and hot tub. All staff friendly and helpful (front desk, hospitality room, housekeeping). Breakfast a pleasant surprise: cheese omelettes, sausage patties, 2 kinds of waffles, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereals, juices, coffees, cocoa, teas, hot cider. 24-hour beverages, computer, and printer available in the lobby. Slept well - comfortable firm beds and no street noise. We will be staying here again en-route home next week!

Older hotel Fabulous Location

We picked the Cottonwood because we were traveling with our dog. They have nice rooms with sliding doors out the back side of the hotel. Directly behind the hotel is the greenbelt that has a bike/walking bath that runs the entire length of the city along the rivers edge. It is a beautiful well laid out path and is great for a run or for walking the dog. The hotel is older but comfortable and clean. The carpets are a little wrinkled in places and the heaters make a bit of noise. The staff is friendly. I would stay there again.

Great location, but property needs a refresh

Thoroughly pleasant staff served as an antidote to a property that evinces a distinct 1980's ambiance. The former Shilo Inn might have been a trend-setter then, with it's large, spacious rooms and idyllic riverfront views, the new owners have a steep and expensive hill to climb, replacing the furnishings (esp. the saggy mattresses and feeble TV reception...on a tube TV!). If they succeed, they will transform this into the showplace it was was.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

"Chicago Connections" is a modest restaurant about a mile west of the property that serves an exact copy of the great deep-dish pizza I knew and loved while going to college in Illinois. If you eve wanted to know what good, real deep-dish pizza tastes like, this is it, and they deserve your business!
