My husband and I spent our 20th anniversary at The Riverside Hotel in one of their Jacuzzi suites. I wasn’t sure about the place initially, but after our two-night stay we were so relaxed it was hard to leave. After we checked in at their attractive lobby then drove over to the building we’d be staying in, I started feeling... More

Rooms are well furnished, staff is helpful and respectful, and rooms were clean. Had an issue with the t.v. and maintenance was at our room within 5 minutes to fix. Ordered in room service one evening, good prices and great food. We ended up with a few issues in the room - none of which were a huge negative..screen door... More

We stayed at the Riverside Hotel for the first time last weekend and were so impressed! The staff is super friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and the room was very comfortable. We were just a few steps away from the river and it was an amazing view to wake up to!!

I have stayed at The Riverside Hotel a couple of times. The rooms are nice and relatively large. The grounds are very inviting and fun with an outdoor pool and spa, outdoor chess with very large pieces, a workout room that overlooks this area, and a seasonal bar next to the pool. The dining facility is great. The breakfast buffet... More

I spent a month in comfort at the Riverside. I slept so well in their comfy beds and soft pillows. The whole staff was wonderful to deal with. The front desk was always friendly.

I stayed at this hotel for a recent business trip. When I first drove up, I was skeptical that it would actually be as nice as the pictures on their website since the outside looked a bit dated. I was so wrong! I can't say enough good things about this hotel. From the front desk staff to the MOST comfortable... More

Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Riverside. I have to agree with you, the outside of the building does not really do the hotel justice. We are working on that but it does still look a bit dated. I am happy you did not let that stop you from coming in... More

Checked in after 8:00 p.m. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great directions to the room! Spent a quiet night with view of the Boise River. The room was very clean and organized. The included buffet style brunch the next morning was also excellent. Highly recommend.
