This place is so charming, if you plan on spending any time at all in Boise, you should spend it here. The check in process is so easy, and the location is great. The actual space is so well designed, down to every last detail. And they really thought of everything you might need during a stay. I wish we... More

My friend and I stayed here one night on a road trip. We booked the two bedroom "Traveler's suite." We loved it! Hip decorating, great kitchen, and comfortable beds and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked. I wish we had stayed longer. The rooms were a bit noisy (you could hear people in another room and early morning trash pick-up)... More

Thank you, BirdofFlight for taking the time to write a review of the Boise Guest House. I have just added noise cancelling machines to a few of the suites on the ground floor. It is an 1895 house and therefore, we do not have the modern noise insulation of a current building. Hopefully other guests are aware that it's an... More

Originally a home, turned into small apartments, turned into a “guest house.” Each room provides guests the opportunity to prepare their own meals and eat in. No breakfast offered, although it can be ordered in from a place nearby. Our room was satisfactory in terms of layout, design and facilities (kitchen utensils, plenty of towels, etc.) but my senses indicated... More

Hello, this is Eve-Marie the owner of the Boise Guest House.

We had a very pleasant stay in the Animal Trophy room. The room was clean and tastefully furnished with whimsical fun decorations. Beds were comfortable. We appreciated having a kitchenette which enabled us to make our own breakfast. Space was a bit tight for two people but the character of the room made up sufficiently for the small space! The...

Hi VerdeRosa! Thank you for staying with us at the Boise Guest House. I'm happy to hear you appreciated the character and it made up for the small space. Yes, this is a small urban studio albeit with 10 foot ceilings and big windows, the floor space is limited. We do hope you come back another time and stay in... More

We have stayed here twice now, once in June in the Animal Trophy Room for two nights and then once in August in the Attic Room for three nights. Both visits were excellent, having a kitchen is wonderful to make tea and coffee and bring food back to enjoy later. It is walking distance to Downtown which is great you... More

We expected to find a typical room one does when booking a boutique hotel but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to see the room was actually an entire studio, including an entire kitchen and small dining area. This room was really beautiful and centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go for food... More

Dear Paula, Thank you for reviewing the Boise Guest House. I am so glad you were pleasantly surprised with your studio experience with the kitchen and dining area. It is a really concise layout so some people find it a little small compared to modern box hotel experiences. I appreciate you mentioning our convenient location and all the bike rentals.... More

What a great place to stay when spending the night in Boise. Great location, adorable room, and very comfortable! We were on the first floor yet had a lot of privacy. Rooms are very trendy design and feels very warm and welcoming!

Dear Astruzz, Thank you for taking the time to review the Boise Guest House. I apprectate your mention of our location and appointments! While we do not typically refer to accommodation as a traditional BnB, we do retain some of the feel of that experience as an 1895 structure. Each of our suites has a private kitchen and a bathroom... More

Very nice people at check in the rooms clean and nicely decorated. Close to the airport. Food in the restaurant was great. A lot of great attraction to do close by. Chris in the bar was very helpful on giving us directions to different things to do while we stayed in Boise.

Thank you for your review, Becka! As the owner at Boise Guest House, I'm hoping you reviewed the right property. We are about 4 miles from the airport in a downtown location, not necessarily close to the airport. There is no restaurant, staffed check-in or bar onsite. Of course, we appreciate a five star review and would love to have... More
