This is the hotel that I always stay in when I travel to Boise for Business or pleasure. Clean comfortable rooms at a great price in the downtown area. It's close walking distance to everything downtown.

I was very happy with our stay at the Safari Inn. The location is great! It is within walking distance to pretty much anything downtown. We were able to walk to all of our destinations. The front desk staff was very friendly. The clerk provided us with a list of restaurants and was very good about informing us of the... More

Descent rooms within walking distance of downtown bars etc. The hotel services in my opinion a college town without the drama that one would expect. Great locale near all services. Restaurants close by as well as much nightlife too.

Road trip from Colorado. Stopped in Boise to see old friends and found this nice hotel right downtown. Walking distance to various emenities. Wonderful restaurants, shopping. Bit windy and chiily, but we're from Colorado do somewhat used to it

A quick over night stay before I flew out for Australia. This was a good priced venue and the room size was great with 2 queens sized beds and room for luggage and sorting before the trip. It had an outdoor pool for hot days. The price also included breakfast, this was very simple, cereals, eggs, fruit, sweet donuts ,... More

Downtown Boise is charming and having a place to stay within walking distance was wonderful. Parking is available on site. This motel has been kept up nicely and we enjoyed our stay. We spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. Some people were swimming and enjoying the outdoor spa area. Even in cold weather-an outdoor spa... More

This hotel is in a great location downtown and in good walking range to just about everything. Staff was nice and courteous. Great free covered parking for many of the spots. Building and rooms are older and starting to look like it. The room was very comfortable but had a lot of dings and scratches. I would go back.

Safari Inn has a great location, an easy walk to almost any downtown attraction. The staff were helpful, and our room was clean and comfortable. There was some late night noise; on a previous stay here, our room was on the other side of the building, where noise was no problem. Early rise meant limited breakfast sample. It's not luxurious,...

Tried this place for the 1st time this summer just because it had an outdoor pool. Stayed 2 nights in August and had the pool to ourselves in the late afternoon even though the hotel was booked pretty solid according to the parking lot. Another plus for downtown is free parking on the property and pretty quiet rooms for being... More
