This is quite literally the worst place I have ever stayed. The pictures on their website are misleading. Our room was dirty. The coffee pot still had the last guest's coffee in it. The shower did not drain. The room smelled overwhelmingly of cigarette smoke. Our key card only worked half of the time and the door stuck to where... More

Stayed beginning of October for 2 nights. Very unfriendly reception, tiles missing in bathroom and smelled musty. Dirty glass shelf and sink wouldn't drain properly. Blankets torn and stained. Wifi did not work unless in one spot in room and then very weak and cut out frequently. Worst problem ended up with about 20 bug bites each from the 2... More

I was looking for the cheapest motel in Boise for my trip and this was it. It was $59.95 for a bare bones room. It had a big bed, fridge, microwave, wifi and non-HD TV. If you are a phobic about cleanliness then keep looking and expect to pay more. If you just need a place to rest, shower, and... More

I chose the Cabana Inn because I was budget minded. If you are traveling across the country, all sorts of "doo-dads" and accoutrements are a waste of money, in my opinion. I want a comfy bed, a good shower, and outlets for recharging by toys (cell phone, digital camera, laptop, etc.). It may be an older hotel/motel, but it accomplished... More

This property is honestly a bit run-down and rough around the edges. It is quite close to downtown, which is a big plus, and also quite affordable, another big plus. It's a bit of a distance to any restaurants. If you don't mind the rough digs, it's a good value for your dollar.

We stopped in Boise on our way to Portland and stumbled across the Inn. It is right downtown and within walking distance of restaurants and other attractions. The bed was great, pillowtop firm and the room was large and quiet and not expensive. We will be there again!

I did the Boise 70.3 Half Ironman and stayed here to save some money. Absolutely not luxury of any kind but it does not hold itself out as such. Decent value for the cost given the city location. The room was clean and provided a good place to stay. I would look elsewhere next time though.

Good location for a stop for the night. Close to the stadium if going to the game! Just a standard room but clean. Helpful staff also in finding a place to eat and something to do for the night. Was a bit interesting to get to due to road construction and some bad directions via passenger navigation

Pulled in to Boise late at night and was recommended the Cabana by another hotel which was fully booked. The innkeepers were very friendly and made the check-in process comforting. The room was basic with painted cinder-block and old fixtures, but was transporting in its unintentional 70's road-side nostalgia. I felt I got a good value for the price.
