If you're looking for a dirt cheap stay in Boise, you needn't look any further. In spite of the fact that the Cabana Inn is an absolute dump, there are some positives. Even though the proprietors are a middle Eastern husband, wife and son team, that are honest, semi-reasonable and speak fairly good English. The rooms are kept fairly clean.... More

The place was clean and quiet enough, and very convenient to downtown Boise. The exterior was ok, but the rooms are long past due for facelifting. Furnishings were as described by other reviewers, but I had no problems with getting a good hot shower. I liked that the towels were immaculately white and not hung over the toilet, like in... More

This hotel was recommended (in the sense of "nothing special but clean and decent") in Lonely Planet, which was why we picked it; plus, it does have low rates and it seemed more fun to check out a locally owned motel than one that belongs to a US-wide chain. Unfortunately, this is pretty much all this place has going for... More

Dirty carpet and chairs. Sink stopper was broke. You had to be incredibly strong to get the shower to turn on. Bad TV reception and no HBO. Curtains were literally falling off the rod. 40 yr. old motel furniture. Mattress was sloped to one side. I guess you get what you pay for. $43.00 should have been a clue. This... More

I found the person renting the rooms and answering the phone rude. It was a very cold winter night. I didn't get as far as renting a room, but I observed a guy trying to get into his room for what seemed like forever, then he went to the manager for assistance only to be turned back with the key...

Pretty bog standard motel. Scottish traveler and have stayed in many motels across America, completely inoffensive and not unclean. Cheap as you like and great location - minutes away from downtown Boise. Could do with a redecoration for sure, but does what it says on the tin.

I arrived unexpectedly on a Boise State home game night. Every place a checked was full until I noticed the Cabana Inn. It is definitely a budget place as the room definitely had old decor but was clean and a place to lay my head. It was fine for a night and suited my needs.

We always try to support the local motels whenever we travel, so when Copa Cabana Inn came up as the cheapest on Kayak and was in the Downtown, we had to check it out. The manager was very nice. The rooms hadn't been redecorated or updated since about 1993, but the one we had was clean and quiet. Mini fridge,... More

There were no bad odors in the room. The rates were pretty good, I payed a total of $47 for a night there. There was a coffee maker, TV, and fridge in the room I stayed in. The guests were kind of noisy at times but it is a motel in which the walls had to have been thin. It... More
