If you're looking for a cookie cutter chain hotel, this is not the place. Chic and modern, I have stayed here twice and not been disappointed. If you stay here you have to eat at the restaurant and get a hand crafted cocktail. The food is modern bistro style, creative, and reasonably priced. Another plus are the bikes you can... More

I booked this hotel thinking it would be modern (like it's name) and eclectic. The building is very old and renovations are mediocre. The floor seemed very dirty and bedding didn't feel very clean or plush. Very basic. One pillow didn't even have a pillowcase on it. There were missing tiles in the bathroom floor. The only highlight was the... More

I decided to look at the definition of what a motel is məʊˈtɛl/ noun a roadside hotel designed primarily for motorists, typically having the rooms arranged in low blocks with parking directly outside. This is exactly what this place is so don't think it's a hotel, the name is very deceiving. I was put in a room which was right... More

Arrived in Boise, Idaho for a nieces wedding. Had made reservations at the Modern Hotel and Bar. We had the best stay for the 4 days. We had a small problem and I went to the Hotel clerk and he followed me back to the room and fixed the TV immediately. The suite was huge having a fold out couch,... More

This is a nicely redone mid-century motel with a pleasant vibe without being too precious. The room was Euro-spare but very functional with comfortable beds. No coffee maker in the room so you need to get out of your jammies and take a short hike down the hall in the morning. Staff were nice and not cloying. You could host... More

This was really my first time in Boise. I was there many years ago for a fast 24 hour trip, but this time I was there to attend a wedding and added on a few days-i'm glad I did. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning after flight delays, called the hotel, and they had a car there... More

Loved our stay here. Our son who lives in Boise recommended it. The management could not have been nicer or more accomidating. They were helpful with suggestions for activities in the area. The food from the restaurant was delicious. The hotel is in a fun neighborhood. The hotel even has windows that open.

Overall, the hotel was very nice, with fun decorations while maintaining a minimalist feel. The breakfast was meager with bagels and juice/coffee, but the juice was actually fresh squeezed and delicious. The bar and the hotel feel is great, with different events going on at the hotel, which is a rarity at a hotel. My only complaint is our door... More

The staff, food and drinks are what makes this place. They have an amazing outdoor patio with firepits, a great place to hang out with friends and have a cocktail or two handcrafted just for you from the bartender, Michael. The central location to downtown is a plus as well. The rooms may not be spacious or lavish but they... More

The customer service was lousy, our door would not open via the key card and the front desk people looked and acted put off that we had issues opening the door. They got it "fixed" but didn't verify it was fixed and when my wife and I tried it still didn't work. There was no consolation offered, just here let... More
