I've stayed at this hotel twice in the past two months while on business in Boise. I chose it because of the location within walking distance of shops and restaurants in downtown Boise and it is also close to the terminus of the I184 freeway. The hotel is clean and up-to-date and the staff is friendly. Both trips I had... More

I enjoyed my stay here. I had stayed here years ago and was expecting a run down place and was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a king bed room in building B. The staff was great, the room was clean and other then a weak flowing shower head, it was just fine. I enjoyed having a refrigerator/freezer and a microwave... More

Staff was very friendly, showers were hot with high water pressure bed was clean. The breakfast was the least impressive I had ever seen. Average price, average experience. I do recommend staying here if you're passing through for the night.

The hotel was very clean and the people were very nice the location was excellent. I went there with a friend to go see a concert at The Knitting Factory so it was in walking distance. My only complaints are--1.) that they charged me an extra $100 for a deposit, when I was booking the hotel nowhere did it say... More

We have stayed here a few times and each one has been good. The area is very safe and a quick walk to many restaurants and bars. It can get noisy when all the drunks roll in from partying on Friday/Saturday nights. Our room was in the C building where they allow pets $89. The rooms are clean and large... More

Nice hotel for an overnight stay if you are traveling up into the mountains by bus. The Greyhound terminal is only 3 blocks away as is the State Capitol. Boise center location. The room is clean at a reasonable price and has internet available as well as a coffeemaker and fridge. They also have a continental Breakfast available every morning.

I stayed here because it was located close to walking distance to a lot of bars. The room was clean and affordable. I enjoyed the few covered parkibg spaces. The continental breakfast was nothing to brag about but the coffee was good.

The overall appearance of this hotel is a "bit worn". However, it was clean and the beds were brand new Serta beds with fabulous pillows. We were attending a local convention and wanted a good value hotel, but also a comfortable place to sleep, within easy walking distance of the conference center. If you just need a comfortable and clean... More

It's really hard to rate this hotel. We stayed two nights to enjoy Boise. It's an urban hotel and broken into two buildings separated by an alley. There is a bar right next to the second building and a "hipster coffeehouse" across the street (think heavy metal coffeehouse that serves a GREAT cup of french pressed java!). Both of which... More
