Rooms are very dark. Not good for working or reading. More utensils and plates are needed in mini-kitchens. Bed-couches need an upgrade as they are uncomfortable. Buzzy little bar, excellent cocktails and service. Can be noisy. Food is a little pricey.

We decided at the last minute to stay in Boise and chose The Modern because it's downtown. The bar was on last call and we got to have a few drinks and meet the bar crab! The room was super cute and the rainfall shower was heaven!! Would definitely stay again!

Understand I'm a hotel snob. I spent the last nine years traveling the globe and staying in 99% boutique hotels. I also understand this business very very well. This is better classified as a motel then a hotel in the classic sense, so I'll refer to it that way from here forward. First off the good: The motel is in... More

The sheets, which I rarely notice, were crisp, smooth and made it difficult to have to get up. The coffee, which comes with a terrific littel breakfast which includes freshly squeezed OJ or grapefruit, was fantastic- and coffee is something I always notice.

I could not have been more pleased with my experience at The Modern. From the moment I walked in, I was treated warmly and with a tremendously friendly manner. I was given a map of the area and several suggestions of possible sights to see. The lounge and its staff were as accommodating. Delicious food and cocktails were presented with... More

The Modern Hotel is an excellent choice for adults looking for a place to stay in the downtown Boise area. It is a short walk from the hotel to both downtown Farmer's Markets that run on Saturdays for much of the year and a plethora of dining and drinking options. The hotel's own bar and restaurant are definitely one of... More

Such a fun hotel in a very cool town. Perfect place. Everything about it was stellar, including dinner out on their hip patio. I'd like to see more places like this one but certainly appreciate their uniqueness.

Recently, my wife and I stayed at The Modern. We had read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. We happened to be in town for business and needed a comfortable place to sleep that was close to the event we were attending. Where do we begin? Upon arrival, the man at the front desk seemed fairly grumpy.... More
