SEVERAL PORBLEMS. Upon checking in, the gal who checked me in gave me two breakfast buffet food vouchers. Upon my co-worker seeing that I was given them but he wasn't (we were both staying there for the same business meeting), she looked up his info and said that I wasn't supposed to get the free meal vouchers and so she...

Beautiful grounds (lots of rose bushes blooming), great pool with adjacent bar & music. Comfortable room with a view of the river, the pillows were fantastic! For an older property this one is very well kept and the staff very accommodating and friendly. Will definitely be back!

We had overnight stay booking their "Romance Package". This package included a nice room overlooking the rose garden, Boise River and foothills. When booking in we were given two huge chocolate chip cookies made on sight. The grounds are very pretty and when lying by the nice pool one would think they were anywhere but a short hop to the...

Hello IreneL, I am so glad you had a nice get away. The Romance Package is a favorite for couples visiting The Riverside. You are correct, when you relax by the pool at The Riverside, it is easy to imagine you are on a vacation at a lovely resort anywhere and you don't have to buy the airplane ticket or... More

From check-in to check-out The Riverside Hotel and its staff excelled in professionalism, friendliness and service. Room maid service is unsurpassed!! Great location just off the freeway in Boise. I liked the room itself the best and the laundry the least (not enough machines).

Our stay was exceptional! The pool is terrific! I recommend staying here more in the summer months because the pool is so great. The rooms, although updated, are still pretty dated, especially the furniture. The beds are VERY comfortable though, and everything was very clean. ALL of the staff here is phenomenal! The front desk, the poolside, the cleaning staff…... More

Such a nice hotel, I stayed with my two young children and just loved it. The rooms were clean and updated with a pod coffee maker, feather pillows and down comforters. I loved that there was a refrigerator in the room. My room was on the pool with a sliding glass door, so convenient. I was worried about noise from... More

Hello Rachel M. I am so glad you were wonderfully surprised. Good surprises are always the best. We are so happy you were able to enjoy the pool and the Sand Bar. Isn't it great to just relax by the pool and have someone bring you refreshing drinks? It is always nice to be pampered. That is a good suggestion... More

I was very satisfied at this hotel! My husband and I were in the area for my mother in laws 82nd birthday, as well as mine. I booked a room with one bed. When we arrived they had us in a room with two beds, which would have been fine with me. But since they did not have a room... More

The hotel was gorgeous and was Great for my senior pictures! Hotel staff was friendly, maids are hard to understand, rooms were fantastic! I enjoyed life size chess games, splash pad, really hot hot tub, and chilly pool! They have bars and grills and breakfast costs 11 a person, but I did not experiance that. Expensive but worth it.

Thank you for taking time to review The Riverside. I am happy you were able to take your senior pictures while you were here. There are certainly some picturesque spots for photos by the river. I often see photographers on the property. It sounds as if you got to experience the Spirit of Boise balloon festival. It is so beautiful... More
