This was my first visit to Boise and Idaho. Everyone was very friendly at the hotel. The mattress was excellent and the pillows nice and fluffy. The bed felt like home. I had a corner room and it was very quiet. I didn't hear any doors slamming that was good because I'm a light sleeper. I was impressed since the... More

First time in Boise to see old friends. The Red Lion had good service. The front desk staff was attentive and helpful. The mattress was superb (a big thing to me). We originally were offered a "quiet" room. A rowdy, but fun, group moved in next door for Saturday night. We were moved to a new room. They were very... More

I had been assigned to work away from home and my experience here has been exceptional! Firstly I was greeted warmly by the front desk receptionist who after inquiring the length of my stay gave me a corner room with a great view and a balcony! It was bright and I opened the curtains every morning to let the sunshine... More

Once again we had a great trip to Boise and staying at the Red Lion Hotel Boise Downtowner help make the trip enjoyable.

We have stayed at this hotel for more than 10 years. We like to visit on our wedding anniversaries and on date nights. We enjoy the little bar down stairs, Characters. Over the years this hotel has gone down hill in their service and facilities. We have had too many stays with problems that we have decided, after our 2... More

Great beds, pleasant, helpful staff and good location. Money well spent. Within walking distance to greenbelt, downtown, river. Parks not too far away. Excellent breakfast buffet each morning. And we love that it's pet-friendly with a grassy relief area.

I would stay at this hotel again. The price was good and the rooms were nice. The neighborhood is a little sketchy but still walkable to downtown. The restaurant had good food. It isn't the nicest hotel in town but probably the best for value.
