We had a great time at the Boise Guest House. We stayed for a weekend in mid-March and just fell in love with the hotel. Each room is a little different with a ton of charm. We loved that there is a kitchenette in the room so we could whip up our own breakfast in the morning!

Dear IdahoBucketList, Thanks for staying at the Boise Guest House and writing a review of our property. I appreciate you mentioning that each suite has a kitchenette - perfect for preparing either a quick or elaborate meal. If you plan to come back and go all gourmet, just let us know and we can provide just about anything you may... More

My husband, 2 year old daughter and myself had just finished a long drive from Seattle. It was such a relief to arrive at the Boise Guest House, and even more of a relief (and pleasant surprise) when we first saw our room! It definitely had a cozy apartment feel with a full kitchen (appliances included), living room, separate bedroom... More

Hi Ned! Thanks for writing a review! I appreciate you mentioning the silver magnet letters in the suites. We try to add a little whimsy and personality to each suite. We also have toys for kids as well- usually staff checks the incoming reservations and we set out age appropriate toys. If you come back to stay with us again,... More

My stay at the Boise Guest House was a very pleasant surprise. It is not your typical hotel. No one greets you upon entering, but rather, specific entry instructions are sent to you via email once you confirm your reservation. You then enter your own little oasis with the privacy, comfort, and independence you would expect from staying in your... More

Dear Exquisiticity, Thanks for reviewing our accommodation! I am so pleased you found it homey and comfortable. We strive to keep the suites immaculate, yet also cozy and unique for our guests. Thank you for pointing out that the Nature Suite is not the quietest suite in the Boise Guest House. The air conditioners in the summer act as white... More

Very clean, fun design, great location, perfect for families! I have stayed at Boise Guest House 2 times, both about a year or so apart- each time has been perfect. The rooms are more than clean, there are no leftover kitchen smells, and I find the self check in to be perfect for my family- its nice and quick. Both... More

My husband and I stayed in the Boise Guest House for 3 days. It is a very cute older house with a great central location in Boise. We stayed in the Animal Trophy Room, so named because it had many stuffed (not real) animal heads around the room -- paper mache fish, an elk made of cardboard, etc. We thoroughly... More

Dear Jan S, Thank you for taking the time to review the Boise Guest House. I am glad you mentioned that we are not a typical Bed and Breakfast. I started our accommodation in 2008, ahead of the curve for the Airbnb industry. Now, most people know that we are an "Airbnb" - a suite complete with a kitchen and... More

Wow. This place is just so charming in every possible way. Decor, gardens, location, staff. On a quiet residential street, yet convenient to everything. A few minutes walk to downtown restaurants and 5 minutes or so up to a beautiful foothill trails in Military Reserve Park. So clean, but not sanitized in that awful way of chain hotels. Helpful, friendly... More

Hi Suze, Thank you for the glowing review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your experience. We strive to provide exactly what you have described to the Tripadvisor community - a place that is friendly, but designed to be "hands-off", clean but not bleach-smelling and.... affordable for business travelers as well as for a "staycation".

My husband and I have stayed here two separate times. We love the personal touches and comforts of home the guest house provides. The location is central to downtown yet located on a quiet street. You can walk to all the downtown restaurants easily. Boise is a very clean and safe city. Please check out the Boise Co Op for... More

My only regret is that we only stayed one night. My wife and I stayed at this hotel in their Treetop Suite earlier this week.
