Recent guest reviews

Awesome place to stay. Lotta room to get space. Clean, nice friendly atmosphere.

My first trip ever to Boise. I was there on business and house hunting. This property is in a very good location: convenient from the airport, close to downtown, so worked very well for me. (A little tricky finding it the first time, but after that I was fine.) The rooms are clean and well kept, a wonderful breakfast buffet every morning. Only slight comment of being less than ideal: it's noisy sometimes. People don't control their children well and hence I was subjected to being awakened by shouting and running. But that would not keep me from staying there again

Have stayed a number of times and the customer service is all the same...Great.. The employees go out of their way to make sure your stay there is a good experience. The breakfast was awesome and location is perfect for downtown Boise activities.

We stayed at the residence inn because of the location to the Boise state campus and the Morrison Center. We were able to easily walk the few blocks between the hotel and where the ballet was being held and avoid the lines for exiting and entering the parking lot

First of many times I will stay here over the next four to 10 months. Very convenient / good location. Hotel staff gave me great information and directions about places in the city I wanted or needed to get to. Great value. And a nice homey feeling.

We stayed at his hotel for a wedding we were attending. They picked us up at the airport, took us to our restaurant and even took us to the store. Wonderful breakfast in the morning and rooms were very spacious. The location was great - very close to everything. Would definitely come back!

The hotel is like a little townhome complex. Very clean. Tremendous breakfast! Staff is super friendly and helpful. Quiet and peaceful.

My wife and I along with two other couples drove up from Ventura, CA to attend our Niece's High School graduation. The ceremony was held in the arena at Boise State University. This hotel was within walking distance. The room was very comfortable and clean. I would recommend to other travelers.

The room was like living in a studio apartment. It was clean and very spacious!

Lovely rooms, more like studio apartments than hotel rooms. There was even a full-sized fridge and working fireplace! In addition their continental breakfast was an actual full breakfast, with multiple choices, not just doughnuts or muffins. Would definitely stay here again!

attended bsu game, within walking distance to stadium, reasonably priced

Great location adjacent to BSU and downtown entertainment. Hotel services are strong (daily breakfast, free shuttle, etc) and the rooms are well appointed. The rooms comfortably host several adults and the layout and kitchen make the property ideal for those traveling with children.

Visiting Boise State University. The hotel was perfect for us. Great location, quite, and large room.

The dining area was expecially attractive and inviting--even had an operating fireplace. The staff were very warm and considerate and, I felt, went the extra mile in accomodating a couple of special requests.
