The Modern Hotel is trendy, retro and non-pretentious all at the same time. The restaurant food was excellent. It has an intentional 1940s or 50s vibe, which is a lot of fun. I could easily walk to the Boise Center and other downtown locations.

Excellent Hotel. Friendly staff. Room is really nice.

In spite of it's name, this establishment is neither "modern" or a "hotel." It is more like a 60's motel with a small bar. All of the furniture is 60's. Don't stay here on a Friday or Saturday night -- the noise from cars dragging up and down Main St. is super annoying. Breakfast consists of a processed, microwaved bacon fritata or a spinach fritata -- no cereal, no oatmeal, no toast, no waffle. The shower occupies 2/3 of the bathroom, so there is no place to put your toiletries. I recommending finding another establishment downtown.

The outdoor courtyard was a delightful space for the complimentary breakfast. Also, that breakfast included fritata, a locally sourced granola bowl, and fresh squeezed orange juice. I have never been offered such an outstanding complimentary meal at a hotel!

Great downtown spot! The staff was amazing, bed was comfortable, shower was amazing and rooms were very clean. I’d definitely stay again!

This is such a cool place to stay. I love the idea of an old hotel being renovated. The Modern really pays attention to the little things, good coffee, high-end amenities, there can be some noise apparently (I didn't notice any during my stay) so they give you earplugs and encourage you to let them know right away if there are any problems. I really felt like my comfort was a priority to them.

Friendly staff, clean room, comfortable beds, good location - less than 10 min walk to several restaurants/bars.

Great location and an incredibly comfortable bed!

Fixed up an old motor inn really nice, great staff, coll remodel.

Great little hotel... close to downtown and great restaurants (including their own). I will be back.

Great hotel in down town Boise. Loved the free bikes to ride around town.

Give me a break. No parking and Windows in the shower and bathroom. Not good for bringing kids along.

Room was clean and beds comfortable. Awesome huge shower in bathroom.

Great place to stay right in Downtown Boise. Straightforward, a little retro, design. Has all the basics you need. Friendly staff. And great bar & restaurant to boot.

A great value. Fun room decor. A little odd that the sink wasn't in the bathroom given the bathroom's cavernous size, but I think I was in a wheelchair-accessible room so that may have had something to do with it. Some front desk staff were more friendly than others. Breakfast is adequate given that it's included. The restaurant has great food (for dinner).

We enjoyed our stay. Close enough to downtown to walk in, but also close to highway to escape out of town.

Loved staying here, convenient and close to BSU and downtown. Loved the decor, but disappointed there was no refrigerator or microwave in room. friendly & helpful staff.

Sorry you didn't enjoy yourself. It was certainly a loud weekend. We are also sorry the breakfast wasn't your thing.
