I recently stayed at the Riverside for a training with my organization. The staff was very helpful, the room clean, and we were place in a beautiful river-view room. The breakfast bar was excellent and the staff always helpful. It is a bargain for the price.

Excellent stay at the Riverside! From checking in to checking out - the staff is always friendly and courteous and went out of their way to make sure my stay was comfortable. The rooms are always quiet and provide a great place to relax at the end of the day. From the breakfast brunch to a late night burger in... More

This is a great hotel. It is an older hotel that had been renovated. The decor of the rooms are a little dated. The bed was comfortable, the lobby is very nice, and breakfast was good for being included in our price. ( although on a previous stay, they had homemade donuts that were to die for. On this stay...

We stayed here as a group for a school sports club and when I made the reservation, even said we were under the Montana group. When we checked in, our name was spelled wrong which caused a big delay and we were under the Oregon group so we were not near any of our group. Plus when we walked into... More

This hotel is right on the river, which we loved. It was newly remodeled and we were very impressed. The staff was terrific. I supposed my only criticism would be the live music stopped at 9pm on a Saturday night and that hot tub was not hot enough. Neither of those will stop us from coming back, which we will.

my band traveled from Portland, Oregon to Boise to perform at the hotel's Sapphire Room. We knew we were in the right place as soon as we met the friendly staff at the front desk, and given a warm chocolate chip cookie! All staff - whether it be in the restaurant, bar, or maid service treated us like stars. The... More

The Riverside is our favorite stay-cation destination. The rooms are modern and comfortable with nice tv's and premium cable, the room service is fantastic, and the huge salt water pool is not to be missed! This is the best place to spend a couple of summer days in Boise. It is truly right next to the Boise River, with access... More
