Everything was amazing from the free bike rentals, AAA discount to the bar and style of the room. Our only complaint was one food item we ordered at brunch that was SUPER salty and be parking was limited. Street parking was available though. Other than that this place was five stars all the way and in a perfect location.

The Modern is a 50-60s style motel that has been refurbished as as retro/hipster type motel. Food, drink and service are excellent. Beds very comfy. It's not fancy and doesn't have a pool but a fun experience and very close to the river and downtown with free bikes to explore.

Stayed on the ground floor. Decor is chic and nice. Room was comfortable. Noise from dining guests was not conducive to a restful evening. Other rooms may not have had this issue. Suggestion would be to request a room away from the outdoor dining area

I was so happy to talk to a real person to book a room for an out of town potential employee. The hotel is in a great location and the bar and patio are fun. Nice place to stay. Booking was easy and the rate was very reasonable.

Love this could-be run down relic turned super hip hotel. So smart to find ways to bring people there even if they aren't staying for some shut-eye. Great bar, drinks, food and events make it a destination for locals too. The folks who work there are exceptionally nice as well.

We were only here for one night, but the hotel did all the little things right and did them with style. The room was clean, nicely appointed, and spacious. The shower was huge and the bed was very comfortable. I loved that we could order some happy hour drinks from the bar and take them back to our room to... More

We had a wonderful stay for our 5th anniversary trip to Boise. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was definitely the show piece of the room. The bathtub and shower were wonderful. Unfortunately, the sound on the TV in the bedroom did not work. We didn't watch a lot of TV while we were... More

Great room; very clean an comfy with a very large and beautiful shower. Stayed in room at back; there was some traffic noise but not exceptionally bad. Not sure if front may have been better. Loved the bar/restaurant; excellent staff. The food was really good with some very original takes on familiar sounding dishes. Great drinks.

Love the vibe of this place! We've stayed here twice for the Boise 70.3 Ironman and loved our experience both times. Such a cool place and so close to the venue--walkable. Super comfy beds and very very clean! Walking distance to many great restaurants. We love the Modern and wouldn't stay any where else! Great continental breakfast. Great happy hour.... More

Loved the decor, the out door seating area and the food was off the charts good. The wait staff was super helpful and it was great that they had coffee out at 4:30 a.m. when we caught our airport shuttle, which was FREE. Definitely will be back.
