Besides the great accommodations the Riverside boasts an amazing location here in the Treasure Valley. Right on the Boise river within minutes of the greenbelt and DT Boise. I'm a local musician and have had the opportunity to play multiple gigs at the Sand Bar & Bar 365 which are at the hotel. These restaurants are huge supporters of local... More

Loved the hotel. Nice rooms, great location, and wonderful pool area. Excellent customer service. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The weekend brunch is absolutely wonderful. I would suggest going to the hotel just to experience that. Homemade donuts with different sauces, and all the regular fixings of a high class brunch.

Check in is always super easy. So much fun stuff is available right there on the river. We rented bikes and cruised the river. The Sandbar has awesome food and drinks right by the pool! Service Rocks! Breakfast is Excellent! Joe's Crab Shack is a short walk.

We stayed here with a large group for a college Agriculture conference. The room was nicely updated and well appointed. I would recommend staying in one of the riverfront rooms, it is well worth it for the view. Front desk staff was very helpful with any of our groups needs.

We stayed at the Riverside over Father’s Day weekend while in town for a family wedding. All of the staff was very friendly and professional and the location was absolutely amazing! The wedding reception was held in the hotel’s conference rooms, and had more than enough space to accommodate our large group. The Riverside also has a fabulous location for... More

This is a hotel that certainly could use some updating, but the service of staff is top notch. My room is spacious and clean. Pool area and the Sandbar are both very nice. The hotel is spread out over quite a bit and there are many hallways but signage help significantly. The river and the greenway next to the hotel... More

I travel to Boise often and I usually stay in AirBnB or a downtown hotel. This week, all were full so I ended up staying at The Riverside Hotel. I was a little worried, but I had a great experience. The hotel is right on the river, the outdoor 'pub' was amazing and the rooms were clean and spacious. I... More

Making reservations was to say the least extremely trying. It took several days to lock in a room that actually stayed the same rate. When we finally arrived we learned that Kate, the manager, had not moved us back to the ground floor as we specifically asked for at the onset of making the reservation. We reserved either a pool...

The staff at The Riverside is always first class and helpful. The rooms are big, modern and clean. I enjoy the pool and the music out at the Sandbar Grill next to the Boise River.... As a working musician, time is very valuable and the staff makes sure I get where I need to be on time. I can't say... More

We are so happy that you had a great stay at The Riverside. You are correct, the Sandbar patio bar and grill has been really popular. I think we may need to expand to be able to serve everyone. People do love the river and the live music. We are glad you had a wonderful experience and we look forward... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for a wedding. The whole experience was great. The staff was friendly, rooms were nice with a cute patio area just outside of my doors. Food was good at the restaurant there and tasty Sunday brunch buffet to finish it off. All in all a great stay!
