This hotel has a wonderful location and fantastic customer service. Front desk staff Alishia was super helpful to us---we were traveling with our one year old baby and she really went out of her way to make our stay easier. The breakfast room staff was really nice too (I didn't catch anyone's name there). It was really affordable too.

Derrick was an outstanding guest representative and front desk employee. He really saved our bacon. Provided us with maps and held a very important item for us when we had incidentally left it in our room. Thank you Derrick!!

Mackenzie W who worked in the Breakfast room was so friendly and congenial willing to make decaffeinated coffee for me and made our breakfast there a pleasant experience. We love being close to the greenbelt as was handy for a morning walk.

My 2 granddaughters, daughter in law and I stayed at this hotel July 6 through 10, 2014. The room was very clean. The facility, including pool area, was well kept. The room rate was exceptional considering the amenities. It was convenient to other places in Boise we wanted to be. The front desk clerk, Derrick, was friendly, personable, knowledgeable and...

We had an excellent stay here, we had trouble with our reservation through expedia. But the receptionist Alishia was of excellent help and helped make our stay great! Very accommodating. She helped us work through our issues with expedia, and that made it less of a headache to stay.

The breakfast was good, but the rooms are really gross; the kind of place that makes your feet black if you walk barefoot in the room. Our 11-month-old son found DOG POOP on the floor under the chair. They had obviously not vacuumed in a long time, which leads me to wonder what else has not properly been cleaned in... More

I booked this place on our way back from Yellowstone. I was scared because I read the reviews after booking and they looked so bad... The truth is that yes, rooms are outdated and definitely this hotel needs a full renovation but staff was corteous and helpful, breakfast was good enough and our room was comfy and quiet. Probably I... More
