My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Riverside motel and had the best time. It was clean, the staff was friendly and professional and the food and service was excellent. We will go back. Loved it and we'll tell our friends.

From the excellent location on the Greenway for the Boise River to the delicious breakfast buffet, the Riverside Hotel was one of the nicest lodging experiences we've ever had. Traveling with a dog? Your pet will not only be welcomed but will receive special treatment and offered home-made biscuits everywhere you go onsite. Our pup was able to join us... More

Every thing about this place was great. The breakfast buffet was as good as any I've ever eaten at. From the custom made omelets, to the home made dough nuts, to the cut to order baked ham and/or prime rib you wished you had for dinner last night. The pool is huge and shallow for the kids. And for the... More

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I have to agree with you. The breakfast buffet at The Riverside is about as good as it gets. We use as many local products as is practical and the omelets are always a big hit. It sounds as if your family had a great time at the pool. I... More

Riverside was clean, staff was friendly and service was excellent. I highly recommend the Riverside for family fun. The kids really enjoyed the large pool and the location to downtown was excellent. We enjoyed are nightly walks along the river.

We enjoy this newly refurbished hotel. This older facility has a spacious, clean and welcoming lobby reminiscent of days gone by. The saltwater pool is excellent and you can also relax at the shady nearby Sand Bar. The rooms are spacious and quiet, the dining is casual and delicious inside in the restaurant or poolside. The flower gardens are lovely.... More

We are so happy you enjoyed The Riverside and thought of it as a resort. That is exactly the feel we want to give our guests. It sounds as if you were able to enjoy much of what The Riverside has to offer. It is great to swim in the saline pool and have food from The Sandbar. The grounds... More

We traveled with our small cocker spaniel and had no issues at the hotel. We were on the ground floor, plenty of easy access to the outdoors. Were even able to take her to the patio for dinner (although the food needs vast improvement). Our daughter loved the pool!

Warm, friendly and helpful staff were attentive to our requests. The Sandbar was convenient, full of friendly people and was pet friendly. The service was good and the food was reasonably priced. Finger steaks were tender and the sauces provided really enhanced the flavor. Breakfast buffet was included and the food was great... especially the Riverside bacon. Mmm... Breakfast also... More
