This is a good hotel don't get me wrong they have a nice little bar with good food and drinks with decent rooms (soft sheets, feather pillows, nice towels and amenities in bathroom) but there are some aspects to this place that make me not like it. First, in terms of downtown hotels this one is a bit further of... More

We decided on this place based on reviewer's recommendations. The woman at the front desk was charming and very helpful with recommendations. We had a nightcap in the bar which had a great variety of cocktails and beers. The room was comfortable and attractive. Loved the modern bathroom. The only complaint was that the complimentary breakfast wasn't served on Saturday.... More

The Modern Hotel was comfortable and unpretentious. We stayed three nights. The hotel is what it is - a rebadged Travelodge. But for the price in downtown Boise it is very acceptable. It is clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The shower is huge and the sink is a pain because it won't drain... More

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

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
