I wish we'd had another day to enjoy Boise, and the Riverside is an excellent base. The outdoor swimming pool is sparkling blue and plenty big enough to swim laps even though many families and children are playing in it as well, the poolside bar scene is attractive and features live music and the bike path access is just wonderful....

My husband and I recently stayed here for two nights. This is a sprawling complex that felt in need of an update. We had a room with a "patio" (small balcony) overlooking "the river" (actually overlooked the trees that lined the riverbank). The reception desk staff did not appear to be knowledgeable about travel options in the area. Overall, this... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review following your stay at The Riverside. I am so sorry the hotel did not meet with your expectations. Thank you for letting us know your opinion of the trees along the river being overgrown. We did take a look at that and they really have grown a lot this summer. The... More

We really were happy we booked this hotel. The location is terrific, right on the green belt that runs both directions along the Boise River, toward town and away from it. The rooms themselves-and the hallways especially get a lot of use and look it. They were a little 'tired" looking, BUT we were very happy here and happy we... More

Loved the look as we drove up - but then we are of the hotel's age! Very impressive as we walked in as the hotel has lots of character. We were greeted warmly and when we asked to see rooms before we checked in, we were readily accommodated. Jonathan was great, helping us find a room I could be okay... More

My son and I were visiting Boise and wanted a place that was close to the downtown area. The Riverside fit the bill. The good/great: 1-staff was great and very helpful. The room we stayed in was one with two queen sized beds. It had a fridge (small but perfect for us), and a microwave. The room was clean and... More

Where do I begin to thank the staff at The Riverside Hotel? I flew in from the Chicago area on an emergency to see my little brother Tim/Fred who was in ICU. He passed away while during my stay.

This hotel is located in a beautiful location overlooking the Boise River. There is a walking path along the river where I could watch folks sliding into the river on their kayaks! The hotel seems to be famous for its outdoor bar with live music, which is very busy and looked like fun. I had dinner in the indoor restaurant... More
