The owners went above and beyond in their update of this hotel. I am most definitely not a fan of motels, and when we arrived, I was a bit nervous. Once inside I fell in love. The owners didn't just throw on paint and update carpet, they reinvented the motel. Usually, I'm happy to find a motel updated and clean... More

We were recommended by a friend, (which I knew I should have researched further prior to making my final reservation) We understood that it was a boutique hotel, and not to have a high expectations. But boy, the end results was MEDIOCRE!! The room itself was very low quality - From the hard beds, to flimsy lamps, to lack of... More

We spent the Labor Day weekend in Boise and surrounding area at The Modern and it was as the other guests mentioned - great and at a great rate for spur of the moment (under $130 with taxes). Besides the full restaurant and bar, no other typical hotel amenities, which is fine for us because we don't spend time during... More

I reviewed the hotel and bar two years ago when we found it by accident while passing through Boise. Stayed again overnight and had dinner. Still a dog friendly oasis on a trip filled with boring chain motels. And, had some of the best lamb chops at the bar for dinner cooked perfectly with pesto and good potatoes. The food... More

This was our first trip to Boise and we were looking for a downtown hotel that was a little out of the ordinary. After reading about the retro décor and awesome showers we were hooked! The desk staff was always friendly and helpful. They even offered some bicycles for us to ride around the area. We were given an interior... More

refrigerator did not work. Prompt delivery of another one but thermostat did not work properly and froze food. Last day requested wake up call and it never came. Alarm clock did not work as well. Got out an hour later then expecting too.

My wife and I stay here regularly to/from visiting family in Oregon. Centrally and conveniently located in downtown Boise. Staff warm, helpful, and professional. A trendy repurposed/remodeled Travelodge-type hotel, the rooms tastefully done up in the Scandinavian style, complete with walk-in showers. Very clean rooms, exceptionally comfortable beds. No need to leave the premises for dinner - the restaurant is... More

We spent a weekend here with our adult children to celebrate a birthday. It was really nice place to stay. They have a funky cool bar that serves appetizer type foods late into the evening and even had outdoor seating with cool fire pits. The rooms are very forwardly decorated. Make sure you are on a couples weekend as every... More

The Modern Hotel and Bar is a great place to stay in Boise. The rooms are clean and decorated in a minimalist cool retro way. The bathroom was spacious and the beds were comfortable. The location can't be beat. We walked all over downtown to a variety of bars and restaurants. The hotel/bar staff was excellent as well. They were... More

This review is only about the bar as we didn't stay here, but it was really good. They've taken a standard looking motel and made it look smart and trendy. We ended up here because I look in a local magazine for the best cocktail bar in Boise and this had won last year. It lived up to that. They... More
