Great hotel for family fun. The rooms are clean and adequate, but the real appeal of this hotel is the breakfast and pool. The breakfast, which is included in most room rates, is fabulous. House made donuts with three kinds of glaze, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, really good fresh fruit, juice, coffee cocoa. I gained 5 pounds just from breakfast.... More

I am so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at The Riverside. I have to agree with you that the pool and the breakfast are two of the highlights of the hotel. I can sympathize with you about gaining weight from the breakfast buffet. I get tempted by the Riverside bacon and the house made... More

I thought room was good, as were the amenities. Best location in town. Staff was courteous, professional. Nice breakfast buffet. What bothered me was the lack of hot water in the room. At 5 am., don't think it was a matter of high demand, so have to assume water thermostat was purposely kept low to save money. At $150 a... More

Excellent facilities and staff, enjoyed just lounging by the pool with friends and listening to music. Wave your hand and the server appears to take your food and drink order. We were visiting friends in Boise and invited them to breakfast in the restaurant a number of times. Great running and biking trail next to the hotel beside the Boise... More

Checked this Hotel out to celebrate my wife's birthday with family and friends. The staff was very helpful, especially Kasey. She suggested we checkout the junior suite which turned out to be just perfect for our party. Right on the Boise River and next to the pool and outdoor restaurant. They let us have an early check in. And a... More

This hotel is in a very cool location, right on the Boise green belt. I was really looking forward to our stay here. The price was more of a splurge for us compared to hotels we normally stay at. The guy who checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful, but it just went downhill from there. The room was... More

The best pool in Idaho. Sitting along side the Boise river & greenbelt you can take a nice bike, walk or run. Sandbar grill is fine for drinks & lite fare. Music was very fun and it appears to be everyday during the summer. With teen grandkids in tow can not go wrong with the breakfast buffet. Large selection of... More

Checkout at this hotel isn't until noon. They were mowing the lawn at 9 am just outside my balcony. As an added treat, they came back at 930. What's up with that. I will never return or recommend to anyone.

Thank you for taking time to let us know of your displeasure at being awoken by the lawn mower. I can certainly understand why that would be upsetting to you when you are trying to sleep and I apologize that we disturbed you. Our guests and their comfort are extremely important to us at The Riverside and we really do... More

You can't beat this, especially if you need some escape with your conference. The river is everywhere you look, and whatever you want is within reach. Bikes to rent mean you can get straight onto the bike path to enjoy the river, and join the parade of people and dogs. People enjoy it from all walks of life, and are... More

I stayed at The Riverside Hotel recently for a conference. It was fantastic! We were greeted warmly by the front desk agent (I can't remember his name! It was something like B.C.). He was pleasant and very friendly and got us checked in quickly. The rooms was spacious and comfortable. The conference area was great; large enough to fit everyone.... More

This is a wonderful hotel. It appears to be set up as a conference type hotel, lots of meeting rooms etc. but was a perfect rest break for us on a cross country trip. The room was very comfortable and clean and the staff very nice. But the best part for us were the outdoor amenities - a huge pool,... More
