Dated, but quiet with good bed

Room was clean, but dated with very old TV (poor picture). The bed was very good and the location is cool (next to the river). The breakfast was so-so. Same every morning though they ran out of cream one day. How can a hotel run out of that! And, maybe most odd, was the maid didn't do up my room one day. Not that it really needed it, but I've never NOT had my room made up in an overnight hotel stay in all my 62 years!!

shilo riverside

Indoor pool, Hot tub and sauna were the top Sellers. It is walking distance to Town and several restaurants are nearby. Several staff members were a tremendous help with area attraction info.

very nice place, good price

Right on the greenbelt/ river path very nice. Road repair/ construction at the time was a pain. Very close to downtown and all its trappings.

Great place!

I was traveling through and really liked how easy it was to get around by walking. The location next to the Boise river was fantastic. The hotel was clean with a nice continental breakfast!

satisfied

It was decent and fairly clean but definitely feels like this place hasn't been remodeled for a very long time (but then again, it almost seems appropriate for this area.) Bed was comfy, WiFi worked, shower didn't get much more than luke warm though. It suited my needs and I'd stay there again.

Room for Improvement

The Shilo Inn Riverside was clean, had super friendly staff and has free internet wireless. Although I was not traveling with pets this trip, they do allow pets. I have had better experiences with this motel chain than at this location. I hope this place is high on the list for renovation because it desperately needs it. Clean, but seriously dated. The two queen beds were mismatched and both equally uncomfortable. The linens were pilled. The coverspreads are a perfect example of why polyester got such a bad name. The room had an actual key (no electronic card) and no deadbolt on the door (yeah, I know, it's Boise, but still...). The room also had that previously smoked in stale odor that never really disappears until you replace the drywall. If you are looking for budget travel in the Boise area, try the Shilo Inn at the Airport instead of the Riverside location. At least until that miracle renovation happens...
