We stay at the Modern whenever we are in Boise and it is our favorite hotel in town. From the drinks served at the bar to the comfortable rooms. It is the best place in our opinion. We are really excited and happy that breakfast has been added to the bar menu and we are always surprised by the new... More

I was in Boise for a business training trip. I stayed at the Modern Hotel for 4 nights. The rooms are decorated in a very cool retro 60's decor. I loved the waterfall shower. The outdoor campfire stories were very enjoyable. Make sure you stop in the bar and ask the bartenders to fix you up one of their award... More

Love this hotel and the restaurant in it! The bathrooms are quite modern and the shower is an open model so it doesn't trap the heat in, which is the only bad thing I can say about this hotel. The service is great, the room is clean and spacious, there's breakfast included, free wi-fi, and the bath products are great!

Room was small, noisy. Parking was an issue. Staff was wonderful and tried to accommodate the parking issue by giving up her spot. Which we didn't take. Kind of like a glorified motel 6. Wouldn't recommend to other travels that are looking for a nice place to stay.

The bar and restaurant are fantastic! Front staff and bar staff are always friendly and very concerned about your stay. Sometimes some of the late partiers can be loud and wake one up, but you just go back to sleep, just like a regular hotel in that regard...the owners cannot control the guests and their celebration of life.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Modern Hotel. Will be my first choice for future Boise travel. The bar equals any big city offerings I've seen (and at a value price). Friendly bartenders make solo post-meeting stop a pleasure.

The staff was super helpful and friendly. As I am an early riser, I truly appreciated that the staff let me get coffee early in the morning--actually before they opened for breakfast. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I liked being so close to down town Boise.

Stayed here for a week long conference while in Boise. I enjoyed the hotel and it's close proximity to the downtown area. The rooms were nice, the lounge was fun, and the continental breakfast was OK . The only drawbacks to this hotel were that the rooms didn't have refrigerators, and the last night there Boise had a huge storm... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and unique rooms. Great location which is easy to get to, close to town and quite. A great remodel of an old historic Travelodge Motel into a hip and trendy place that has a down home feel. I would definitely return for another visit.

I lived in Boise for a few years before I made my way down to The Modern (I always got caught up at Bittercreek), but then I moved away and decided to stay here on a visit back. The drinks and food are fantastic (if kind of heavy on butter). My room was right next to the ice machine so... More
