The hotel staff were extremely friendly. When I checked in they asked me what my room preferences were and helped me choose a floor and view. Every staff member greeted me in passing. The breakfast was free and had a variety of choices. I wasn't a huge fan of the coffee, but otherwise it was great. I really enjoyed my... More

After driving 14 hours, tried to book a cheapie hotel online and had the WORST experience, got my refund and decided to come back here! Had stayed here in April, and LOVED it. Booked on Hotwire in April and paid in the 60's, however right now is 100 and up, but SOOO worth it. Such friendly front desk staff, quick... More

I was very impressed at this hotel. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was very nicely appointed and clean. The breakfast was a surprise, large selection of warm food and comprehensive selection of cereals and fruit. Close to the river and green belt for walking. Convenient to get in and out of town.

After driving five days across country I stayed at this lovely clean hotel. Very nice people, good breakfast choices and close to the river walk. My husband made the reservation for me and reserved a corner room suite and it was lovely! Friendly staff, easy access to the main routes out of town.

The staff at this hotel are very friendly, out going, and willing to go that extra mile to ensure the guests are well taken care of. Rooms were great, very comfortable beds, the food selection in the AM was much better than I expected. The Pancake maker was a huge welcomed surprise to other hotels I have been too. Overall,...

Overall a nice stay. Next to the river you can walk on or bike on. Rooms are clean and spacious. Quiet too. I appreciate the platinum upgrades. Thank you. Breakfast was good too. I liked the chobani yogurt and self serve pancake maker. Red Robin and a great family owned mexican restaurant are within walking distance. Good number of teenager... More

We made a last minute detour to Boise to meet an old friend. I found the hotel to be in a good location. Nice rooms, good breakfast. Extremely nice staff. Only problem I found was they charged for laundry soap and an excessive amount to use the laundry. OH WELL, not a problem. Over all I would stay there again.

Close to the Green Belt and River Area, friendly staff and clean rooms. Great mattress and pillows. The maintenance staff had to be called get the pool gate open but even they were friendly. You know that means a lot! Plenty of places within walking distance to eat. One can reach out and touch downtown, a big little town. I... More

We really enjoyed our stay here --- very nice hotel. Very comfortable and dog-friendly too : - ) Strange experience when we realized that the nightstand clock was an hour off, and tried to change it. We were unable to find a way to change the time. First we called the front desk and they couldn't help us with it.... More

On business my wife and I stayed for a night and found this to be an outstanding HI property; beautiful decor, outstanding friendly staff, quiet room, great bedding and overall a real value. The breakfast was hot, well prepared and much larger than normal. Good safe parking with easy entry to the hotel. Yes we will stay here again.
