Had a wonderful 3 day stay during Jaialdi 2015. Excellent room on the 3rd floor of 'Building C', facing Main Street. Quiet, comfortable with an efficient and relatively quiet A/C system providing consistent cooling in spite of 103 degree days. Very spacious room with one King bed and a lovely (and quite unusual) sitting area - a spacious kitchen style... More

Nothing spectacular about this older place and the front desk was slow, but I would return based on a very reasonable price and a great location. The parking was free and I found a place under cover to park for the weekend and never needed my vehicle as there was plenty to do within walking distance. I also liked the... More

The Safari Inn is located at the heart of Boise. You can walk to the capitol, to the river, to Boise State University, etc. It has everything you need for a nice, comfortable stay. Its rates are very reasonable & they include a good continental breakfast, The swimming pool is small, but it fits te bill for a quick dip.... More

Stopped in July 1st for one night. We found a couple disgusting and ALARMING issue the next morning. We took pictures and notify the front desk. The manager went and inspect the room while we were checking out. The front desk did not issue a receipt because she said "We will take care of it." We called them the next... More

We stayed here because we wanted a downtown location and the price was right. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The bathrooms are a little dated and the mattresses weren't super comfy. The breakfast wasn't anything to get excited about and the pool is pretty small, but for a downtown location, we were content. The main thing... More

the Safari Inn is ideal. Room is ok but TV undersized if you are trying to watch from bed. Shower hot water pressure adequate but not strong enough for us. Front desk was nice but no mention of breakfast. We were in building C which was on a main street named Main Street. Across the street was a dive bar... More

Yah, the price is reasonable but bed was worn out so sleep was poor. Yah, they had breakfast, but it was meager. Yogurt, two cold cereal selections, bagels and English muffins, hard boiled eggs, melon and pineapple cups, donuts. Yah, they had a pool and hot tub but they're small and outside so you can listen to the traffic 10... More

Thank you for writing a review, I'm sorry you had a less then perfect stay. Our goal is to provide a clean comfortable room. Our transition from Cable One to Direct TV has taken longer then expected, but we will have a better product with DIrect TV. We replaced all our beds with Serta Beds two years ago so it... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel...easy to get to and a quick stroll to 8th Street with tons of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The hotel does have a parking lot and there is a small gym that is in an old hotel room...nothing great but sufficient to get a good workout in if you so desire. I will... More

First time in Boise and found this affordable gem with no advance planning. Very comfortable room with nice amenities. Separate freezer a plus since traveling with food for a long road trip. Easy walking to downtown, river, parks, and bike routes. Great dinner at The Fork followed by a soak in the hot tub. Breakfast is adequate and a major... More
