We were in Boise for an event at Boise State for prospective students and decided to stay here because of the good reviews and the proximity to the university. It looked like it had recently been redone with nice colors and more modern decorations. The location was great for the university and downtown. It was in a good central location... More

Just a wonderful experience. Located in the heart of Boise, within 5 minutes you can be downtown checking out all the fine dining from Basque to Steak to Salmon. The Green Belt is literally across the street, so you can run, walk, whatever, heck, I saw a couple of guys fly fishing in the river. This is a new hotel,... More

We travelled from out of state to see the opening football game at Boise State. This hotel is a perfect location as it is a 20 minute walk to the stadium along a very nice paved trail that follows the river directly to the stadium. There are a couple bars/restaurants (the Ram being the best) along the way for tailgating.... More

Perfect location just down the road from Boise State and the downtown area. Great rooms and of course the Holiday Inn Express breakfast area. This one is also close to the Boise River and the pathway. Great for a jog or just to walk. Also had an agreement with the a local gym down the road allowing me to get... More

One of the best hotels in the HIE chain. Professional staff, great location, clean modern facilities and comfortable rooms. Nearby river walk is great to unwind. A few restaurants are in walking distance. Close to Boise State.

My husband and I stayed two nights so that we could go whitewater rafting on the Payette River (Cascade Raft and Kayak....also excellent!!). The front desk clerk, Derek, was very helpful and professional. We rented two bikes to enjoy the beautiful trail along the Boise River. Derek adjusted the seat height for me! The free breakfast had everything you could... More

The Hotel Staff was Excellent, at all times of the day or night! They rent bicycles by the hour, or day. Close to Boise State University. This location had a guest laundry which came in handy for the long stay.

Stayed here with 2 other friends for a football game. Place looks like an old office building in a generic office park but this is a bit deceiving. Interior common area and the guest rooms were in fantastic shape. Didn't use the pool but what a well maintained, inviting looking area. No issues with price, cleanliness, or location but the...
