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

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

So comfortable, and convenient. Had the best night of sleep ever in in a hotel, and the showers were really something special. This romantic getaway will definitely be a return trip for my husband and I.

I love to stay at the Modern. My room was sleekly designed and very comfortable. Freshly-squeezed juice, bagels,granola,yoghurt are an included breakfast. Michal remembered me and asked about my grandkids....that was so special.

Major kudos to what looks like young entrepreneurs who have converted this old Travelodge into a fun, hip, and different type of motel. Fire pits outside, a cute little restaurant with excellent drinks and great 90's indie music, free rentable bicycles, and room upgrades - minibar a nice touch and very rare for this price point. Keep in mind, though,... More
