Not a Hotel anymore but they book the ballroom and their business practice at the Owyhee ballroom needs massive improvements. One day they say "The Ballroom is yours", the next day they say "Sorry we have a tentative hold on the Ballroom." They hold the Ballroom on a maybe with no deposit and pass on people who are willing to... More

I stayed here a couple of time during my annual visits to Idaho. A little too fancy for my personals tastes, but, it was clean and well maintained. Security deposit was a little over priced. It was more than twice what I paid for the room.

I've stayed at this hotel twice in the last two years for an anuall conference at BSU. Opt for the upgraded rooms, the extra $10 seems well worth it; though admittedly I haven't opted for the "un-upgraded" room. The hotel has free parking, which is almost unheard of anymore, which gives an extra bubble in 'service' and 'value'. The staff... More

Owyhee? Oh why not! Should be renamed 'Oheckyes.' The hotel itself and location was great! Free parking which is always a plus. After a streak of awful hotel stays, this was a nice refreshing breath of fresh air. the price was great and so was the staff. Highly recommended. Kudos to the Oheckyes.

I recently attended a small conference at this hotel. Front desk and staff were all very nice and helpful. Thanks for recovering my misplaced jacket in record time! Meeting rooms were nice and food was very good. Best part of all was the outstanding bed, very comfortable. I hope we hold more meetings at this location since it is in... More

Having a general preference towards a more modern, well-known hotel, I was referred here and decided to give it a shot. It was definitely a good reference and was a contributing factor in an overall successful, fun-filled vacation. From the initial contact at the front desk to the housekeeping personnel, the entire staff was professional and friendly. At first glance... More

I have stayed @ The Owyhee Plaza Hotel many time's. Winter, Summer, in fact this place rocks anytime of the year. Everyone treats you as if you are Family.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful room decor in an older building. Big flat screen tv with a great view over the Boise foothills. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous. If you want to stay in downtown and are value conscious, this is a great place to stay!

I received an offer in the mail from a real estate group for a package deal at the Owyhee. For $100 my wife and I received a "delux room", $20 credit for use at the Plaza Grill, and a $20 Boise downtown gift card. The room was a $60 hotel room, tiny bathroom by todays standards, but the bed was... More

I stayed here for a conference that I attended. Let me start off by saying that the staff was very friendly, and the food was pretty good. But they should really just call this place the "Owyhee Plaza Hotel and Motel" My room was in the motel section. To get to my room from the conference rooms and lobby I... More
