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

I am glad to say I stayed at this holiday inn. I usually stay at Hilton but I think this holiday inn has changed my mind completely. It was recently updated. Great breakfast, nice pool, spacious rooms and world class service!!! I know exactly where I will be staying when I come to Boise!

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

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.
