The location is great and very easy to get to. The staff checking us in was very pleasant and apologetic as he was working on an issue for another guest when we arrived. The room was very clean, very comfy bed..definitely will stay here again.

What a nice place to stay in Boise. This will be our mainstay when we visit, which we do several times a year. Staff were helpful, rooms was modern and clean, beds comfortable, and location near a walking trail on the river. Rooms on the mountain side have an amazing view. We'll be back!

Derek at the front desk really wanted to make an impression--and he did exactly that! I travel a lot for business, and the exemplary service that I receive from the Holiday Inn brand is second to none. They search for ways to exceed expectations. Not only was I able to check-in early, but I was also treated with what my... More

Located close proximity to Boise State University, downtown Boise, shops and eateries. 10 minutes from Boise airport. Hotel itself is pretty clean and modern, with good accommodations, free parking and wifi. Best part is having free breakfast. Better choices available compared to continental breakfasts that other hotels may offer. The have hot items like eggs and sausages, oatmeal, and many... More

Courtyard was going to charge me twice the price I paid at this hotel and I got every bit the quality and service. This will be my hotel of choice from now on when staying in Boise. They had a huge sellout of rooms because of a soccer tournament and the other hotels appeared to quantum jump their prices for... More

Excellent location if you are visiting kids at BSU or on a business trip as it close and convenient to downtown, at least a short cab ride. It is right across the parking lot from Barbaoca which is the most unique restaurant... More

This has been the most enjoyable vacation we have been on and a lot of that is due to the amazing staff at this location. First of all the breakfast staff is GREAT with kids, they are right there to help, or get you what you need. They are so under standing about messes and spills. Next the front desk... More

We had a corner room with large windows overlooking greenery and the pool area. Close to a beautiful pond with families of geese (watch out where you step). High tech clock next to bed was excessively bright; had to cover with a towel. Windows are sealed making one dependent on blower for air--and the blower was rather loud with a... More
