Thank you Riverside hotel! The romance package was splendid, bartender Meagan was fabulous, and the breakfast buffet was dank. Great pool, also like the architecture and giant chess boards. Will be sure to recommend!

My wife and I stayed at your Hotel last week for a reunion of shipmates who served on the Saint Paul CA 73. Our room was wonderful as always, except that my room key did not work all the time. I had to get at least 4 different keys. The Staff was sooo helpful and always tried to fix the... More

The hotel looks good inside and out. The front desk people couldn't have been friendlier. Easy parking. The room was clean. Convenient location near downtown. The free breakfast was better than most coffee shops. I'd go back.

Hello JayDee, I love the title of your review. The staff at The Riverside has a goal to be the friendly hotel so I am glad you found that to be true. Isn't the easy parking just the best? An added bonus, it is FREE! I also like the location of The Riverside. We are just minutes from downtown but... More

The friendliest staff ever. They greeted us with amazing chocolate chip cookies. They changed our room for us even though they technically didn't have to. When we booked it said something about a balcony and when we got there no balcony. The wording favored them after we looked at it but they upgraded us anyways. Great breakfast buffet. Overall great... More

We've stayed at this hotel twice, visiting Boise to see a sick friend. We needed to come back for the funeral and the staff was kind and accommodating. Thanks for some brightness in a time of sadness.

My mother-in-law, daughter and grandson stayed at the Riverside Hotel. It is right on the greenbelt in Boise, so we rented bikes from the hotel and rode around the river. That was so much fun! We swam in the pool which was perfect for my grandson. The breakfast buffet (which is included with your stay) was really good and even... More

Hello OregOnfamilyof4, I am so glad you selected The Riverside Hotel for your family get together. It sounds as if you really took advantage of many of the amenities we have available at the hotel. The swimming, walking and biking is a great way to enjoy a summer day in Boise. You must have worked up an appetite after all... More

Very good facilities, and well arranged rooms. Very attractive grounds. We appreciated the pet friendly accomodations. I would stay here again on my next trip to Boise. Requiring 200 characters minimum is a bit silly. jOHN dUDGEON

Riverside Hotel was the site of 50th Boise High reunion and offered discounted rates for alums. Great value for roomy, clean, comfortable accommodations. Feather pillows and best hotel bed ever. Complimentary hot buffet breakfast was delicious and fresh. Idaho trout dinner was fabulous.

Hello Rebecca K, I am so glad you were able to enjoy the pool. It is so inviting and what could be better than relaxing in your lounge chair and having someone bring you a refreshing drink or a great burger? I agree with you about the lights. Those blue lights make the courtyard seem almost mystical. I love the... More

Wonderful pool and poolside service. At night the blue lights on the trees around the pool were awesome. The breakfast buffet was out of sight and included in the price. Would recommend poolside or river side room.

Hello KF, Thank you for your review and thanks for once again selecting The Riverside for your reunion. We have had more Boise High reunions here than I can count.

We've stayed here once or twice a year for 20 years. It's the only place I'd choose in Boise. Several friends stayed here on this visit and they were also very pleased with it. The property itself is stunning as is the location by thr Boise River and the Greenbelt. I look forward to my next visit.
