One cannot say enough about helpfulness of staff. Do not book a room on lower level; there is NO soundproofing and all sounds from room above can be heard; this leads to little or no sleep in some cases. Dining room seems understaffed for numbers of people being served but service is professional and friendly. Ditto for front desk. Suites... More

I really enjoyed our one night stay at Riverside! We live locally but seldom get out to play. We care for my elderly mom who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease. My hubby and I decided we REALLY needed a night out and have always enjoyed music venues. Having the Sapphire Room offering top notch music IN the hotel was an ideal... More

My best friend and I traveled from Bend, Oregon to Boise with our two Standard Poodles to show at a very nice dog show here. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Though we were promised a room with a sliding door off to the river, they ran out of those rooms before we got there. Hopefully next time we... More

The hotel could not be in a better location, right on the river and the greenbelt. The greenbelt is a 25 mile biking/walking route along both sides of the river. We were also able to rent bikes from the hotel to take advantage of this. We were 5 minutes from downtown and the airport. Everything is so easy to get... More

Thank you for reviewing The Riverside Hotel. I am so glad you were able to enjoy our great autumn weather by taking a bike ride on the Greenbelt. It certainly is nice to have the bikes available right at the front door and be only steps from the Greenbelt. I am glad you liked the location. I too feel this... More

Staff are very professional and helpful. Good service. Clean throughout. The overall property is fine, but the building is quite dated. Overall a nice property the could be great if the infrastructure was updated.

I stay here frequently. I can tell they have been putting a lot of work to to updating this hotel. The rooms were getting very dated in past years. I was here in the late 60's so I understand how old this Hotel is. My issue this time was when I reserved the room for a conference at the special... More

I was able to get help with suitcases. It would have been nice if the driver could have had a key for the doors so she could bet in the closet to your room. The room was o.k. It was left clean at the end of the day. I liked the TV it was big enough to see

We have stayed here for several years and love the chocolate chip cookies that areavailable every day if you want. The rooms are nice and roomy and the bathroom is nice and big and its nice to have two sinks. There is lots of closet and drawer space especially when we stayed for 4 days.

Thank you for your review. I love the chocolate chip cookies as well. I even love the smell of the kitchen when the pastry chef is baking them. It reminds me of my Grandmother's kitchen. I also agree that it is nice to have a large room with lots of space for clothes and toiletries. I probably pack too much... More

Great place to stay with pets. Room was large with a small balcony to view the River and river walk. Hotel has a good pet area with waste bags and disposal can. They have an outdoor restaurant/patio that is pet friendly, we did not eat there but it was great to see a place we could take our dog. We... More

Thank you for your review. I love the title of "River Tranquility". I would agree, the river is very calming. If I have had a stressful day, there is nothing better than a walk along the river. It is especially nice if you have your four legged friend with you. I am happy to hear you and your dog both... More
