I stayed at this hotel for a recent business trip. When I first drove up, I was skeptical that it would actually be as nice as the pictures on their website since the outside looked a bit dated. I was so wrong! I can't say enough good things about this hotel. From the front desk staff to the MOST comfortable... More

Checked in after 8:00 p.m. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great directions to the room! Spent a quiet night with view of the Boise River. The room was very clean and organized. The included buffet style brunch the next morning was also excellent. Highly recommend.

My husband and I have stayed at this place on several occasions. It's a special place for us. It's the first place we stayed together overnight to go to a Boise state football game, the place he purposed to me at, and where we stayed when we took my sons for their first Boise state football game. The breakfast there... More

I was in Boise for business meetings and this place is older but well maintained and in very good condition. The room was clean and kept up. There are some good restaurants nearby and I also ate breakfast and dinner at their Riverside Grill on-site. Bed was comfortable and there was a small fitness center that you had to go... More

Stayed 1 night and found the Riverside to be a comfortable hotel. It is very spread out in 5 different wings, but they are connected together so you can walk to the front lobby, but if you are in the furthest wing, it is quite a hike to the lobby! Front desk staff were very friendly, check in was quick,... More

The renovations to this landmark hotel make it worth the slight location inconvenience. The proximity to the river is fabulous, as is the attitude of the staff, A great value, very comfortable. ask for remodeled rooms

Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Riverside. We do like our proximity to the Boise River. The river landscape changes with the seasons but it is always beautiful.

We loved staying at the Riverside! We walked downtown along the greenway--beautiful! Enjoyed the fire pit outside our patio, and the breakfast was AMAZING! The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and updated. I will definitely stay again next time I'm in Boise.

We stayed the first of the year after a long, hard snow shoeing trip the night before. We wanted to relax in town since we still and another day off from work.

Thank you for your review. I am so glad to learn you found The Riverside to be "Great"! I agree, the breakfast buffet is fantastic. We use as many local products as practical and we bake everything fresh daily. There is no better way to start the day than an omelet from our omelet bar. I am also happy you... More

I stayed here during a business trip. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
