My friend and I took our annual trip to Boise to relax, have fun and shop. We stayed at The Riverside and had a great time. The staff was wonderful and even got to chat with the GM. Rooms were great--quiet and comfortable.

Hello Jane, We are so glad you and your friend enjoyed your trip to Boise and to The Riverside Hotel. We certainly enjoyed having you stay with us. I agree, the rooms are quiet and comfortable. It is nice that they are larger than most standard hotel rooms so you have room to move around and you don't feel confined... More

Great front desk staff...so helpful and thoughtful.... the pet rooms are on the river...so nice, ask of them even if you don't have a pet. Good location on the river, good music at Sandbar restaurant along with great service and food.

I am so glad to hear you found the front desk staff helpful. This is usually your first impression of the hotel and it can set the tone for the stay. I agree with you about the river view rooms being the best. Of course, it is convenient if you bring your pet since these rooms open up right on... More

The staff was excellent. Rooms are spacious and clean. The Sandbar was excellent lunch with great drinks, and we arranged for a discount on Facebook that included breakfast at Riverside Grill, which was also wonderful. I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable price for an upscale facility.Thanks for a great night!

We found this hotel by Siri on our Iphone while traveling out of Boise. A pleasant surprise. Sand Pit provided live outdoor music even on a thursday night. The duo playing, piano and sax/flute, were great to listen to on a warm sunny evening. Staff very friendly. Mixed drinks - weak. The Riverside Grill was short on atmosphere but food... More

A must stay hotel! The staff is excellent . They all seem to love their jobs and made us feel very welcome, including our golden retriever. The out door restaurant is pet friendly! The pool was very warm with excellent bar service. The made to order omelets are delicious . Beds are fabulous . Beautiful setting on the river walk.

Hello Carla W. I am so glad you and your golden retriever enjoyed your stay at The Riverside. It really is a great place for pets as the Greenbelt is right outside your door so it is very easy for the dogs and the humans to get their exercise. I am really happy to hear the staff was welcoming and... More

My first trip to Boise and I couldn't have picked a more perfect hotel to stay at. Check in was smooth and cordial and the chocolate chip cookies a very pleasant surprise. We stayed in rooms close to the pool area, facing the parking lot and a peek-a-boo view of the river and greenway and absolutely loved the comfort the... More

That is great news... You loved The Riverside so much you stayed an extra night. It sounds as if you are very adventurous and you were able to enjoy many of the amenities at The Riverside and the surrounding area. From the pool to the Greenbelt and the white water park, you took the time to make a full day... More

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!

Hello Diane, I am so glad you found The Riverside Hotel to be just what you were looking for. The roses really are beautiful this time of year. We have over 50 varieties of roses so that keeps our grounds crew busy and they do a great job giving all of the flowers tender loving care. I am so glad... More

Hello IreneL, I am so glad you had a nice get away. The Romance Package is a favorite for couples visiting The Riverside.
