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

Just spent the night at the Safari Inn in downtown Boise. We had reservations and checked in about 4pm, check-in went quickly and our dealings with staff went well. But trying to navigate the cramped parking lot, the one-way streets, and the barely-big-enough parking spaces had us cranky well before we got to our room. The entry to the second... More

Loved the location and staff. Really enjoyed walking to the River Walk. The memorial and parks along the river walk are all a few blocks walk away. Room clean and nice. Don't stay there the same night as the square dancers. They'll leave no breakfast food. Good find. Great value.

I requested a 5:14 am complementary shuttle to get to the airport but at 5:19 there was not a sign of it or anyone at the front desk. The front door was locked and the lights not on behind the desk. I remembered the name of the taxi, Boise City Taxi, called them and they sent someone quickly. The complementary... More
