This must rank among the top Holiday Inn Express properties. It's super well done. Very comfortable room. Excellent service. Dining area, totally set up for camping out with a laptop, is really nice. Free WiFi throughout the hotel.

We stayed here during a cross-country road trip. My husband was visiting a friend in town so the pup and I had the room to ourselves. Incredibly comfortable bed. Nice, clean, updated decor/furniture. Another great dog-friendly hotel. The only complaint I have was the price. It seemed steep for Boise and a Holiday Inn Express.

Clean, quiet, spacious rooms in a great location close to the downtown, the University, and right across the road from Boise's well known river bike path, with beautiful views of the hills surrounding Boise. The breakfast room is large, and there was a variety of breakfast foods as well as attentive staff there to replenish and sweep up any crumbs... More

The staff at this hotel went above and beyond to help me with my many questions and needs. The room was a great size and felt very clean. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best we had during our trip. Will be returning to this hotel when we go back.

I travel often for work, and didn't have high expectations for a morning-of booking. I couldn't have been more impressed. Check-in was a breeze. The room was ***immaculate***, and I was pleasantly surprised at how new the furniture and tech were. The bed was extremely comfortable, and they serve breakfast (included) until 10:00 AM, which is amazing for those of... More

I booked a room at this hotel for my anniversary. At checkin i was first told they couldnt find my reservation then after a lot of typing behind the counter I was told the room type i requested wasnt available. This was a bit shocking since the resevation was made several days in advance and I am a Spire. Anyway... More

Stayed at this hotel because of proximity to family and attractiveness of large pool. It's in a quiet area near to BSU and close to downtown. However, despite it being a "smoke-free hotel", I changed rooms twice and couldn't find a room that didn't reek of smoke after AC had been on for awhile. Also, staff didn't make much of... More

We booked this room while en route to Oregon from Denver. The booking/front desk staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The location; close to downtown, Whole Foods, the river, and parks, was perfect. As many travelers can attest, Holiday Inn Express facilities can vary from "acceptable" to "better than average." This hotel was perfect. In truth, it was better than... More

The facilities were nice. The room was clean, beds comfortable. The kids love the pool. My only complaint was that the Wi-Fi was unusable. We were able to connect to the network but apparently everybody else in the entire hotel had the same idea. I could not get a single webpage to load or even send an email. With this... More

Great location along with top notch amenities. Everything is very new and clean. Walking distance to a couple of great restaurants and not a far drive to the heart of downtown. They even have rental bicycles available for use. Breakfast options were outstanding and everyone is very friendly and accommodating
