I absolutely loved this hotel! The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was modern with an amazing view. The location was perfect, close to a nice restaurant and good shopping in the area. I will be staying at this hotel every time I'm in Boise.

I stayed here because it was close to the Susan G Koman Race for the Cure. I had read that it was newly updated. The personal were very nice and helpful. Room was clean and nice but nothing special. Breakfast in the morning was good with a nice variety to choose from. It is somewhat close to Boise State, has... More

First time at this place and we will be back for sure. I wanted to stay somewhere right by the river for running purposes and close to town and shopping for my wife and daughter. It also turns out that this place is right by my all time favorite restaurant Barbacoa. I was totally impressed with the location, staff and... More

Stayed 2 nights at HI Express Parkcenter. King room was spacious with a great view of the greenbelt that links a 25-mile area with an awesome footpath / bike path along the Boise River. Hotel has an above-average FREE breakfast for guests. The beds are firm and the bathrooms are very nice - bright with plenty of hot water! Lots... More

I stayed at this location April 10 - 11, 2015 and I was amazed at the customer service that was provided by the staff. The facility was very nice, beds comfortable, room nice and clean but it was what I would expect. What made the stay memorable were the efforts of 4 staff members that treated us like family.

First and foremost, the staff here went above and beyond from the second we arrived. Anything we needed, they accommoted us quickly and graciously. The staff members that helped us were Derick, Lesslie, Dacen, and Matthew. Excellent employees! Also, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was fabulous!!

Hotel offers free shuttle from airport which was very nice. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Room is nice and clean with a beautiful view of the Boise hills. Hotel is very clean and quiet so far.

Recently remodeled, comfortable public spaces and helpful staff. Derek at the front desk went above and beyond helping me with my membership account and accommodating an early check in for a weary traveler. Bonuses included local shuttle and complimentary airport transportation. We will be back!

Holiday Inns have been around for as long as I have and about 15 years ago they started to show their age. I stayed at the HIE in Boise because my usual choice for personal stays was booked. GREAT accident. This place is VERY close to the BSU campus if you're going to see a grandkid or watch a game.... More
