Our stay was well done. Room was clean and comfortable and staff was friendly and helpful.

This location has zero usb outlets in rooms and the breakfast/ lounge area. Be sure to pack an adapter to get your charge on!

The location was convenient to our medical facilities in downtown Boise.

Great hotel, very clean, staff was great, room was spacious and as described in the ad. Free breakfast was included and they took all safety measures for Covid

Check in was great! I felt very welcome when it was my turn to check in. He even gave me a complimentary toothbrush and toothpaste!

The staff were all very nice and helpful. It was a great experience.

great location; some of the breakfast food items that were supposed to be hot weren't

I had no problems,my stay was what I expected because I’ve stayed there before.I would like to single out a young lady who helped.A young chamberlain named Katie.Very helpful and pleasant.

Facility is bright and clean. However It is dated and facility amenities’ ergonomics is not traveler friendly. The breakfast food counter is cramped and not permitting great flow of customer traffic.

The hallways were very dark. But breakfast was great and my kids enjoyed the pool

Very nice place and great services. We like the breakfast too

This hotels seems to be a bit renovated hotel. For the most part it was clean and nice looking. I don’t know if smoking is allowed in some floors or if the room we received was illegally smoked in, but the room still smell somewhat of stale smoke. Being allergic I ended up battling a headache and allergy symptoms all night.

Great location . Close to Boise State sports venues.

Nice location. Nice staff. Love the greenway in Boise

very nice would come back next time I am in town.E Location is perfect and rhe staff was friendly and most helpful.

I've been staying at this hotel for many years, but last time I was there, I left my tablet on the nightstand and when I called the hotel a few hours later, when I realized I had left my tablet, they weren't able to find it or help me. I'm filing a police report. I'm very desapointed with what happened and that I can no longer stay there because I can't trust that my things are safe at the hotel. Very sad. I can't recommend the hotel.
