The Downtown Inn is a 1960s era motel. As such, the outlets in the room are few for those needing to recharge their electronic equipment, and the lighting is minimal. The owners are refurbishing the rooms as of January 2016, so there are a few inconveniences associated with that. The roads nearby are quiet at night and the police station... More

It is what it is. It's an older building, the owners have done a phenomenal job of brining it back. It was clean and the staff was very friendly. Would stay there again, and can't say that about quite a few of the places we have stayed at. The only reason we gave it 4 stars is because there is... More

If you are looking for a budget friendly hotel to base out of this is it. Our room was clean, with basic bed, chair, small table with chairs, microwave, fridge, coffee pot, and the surprise a 55 inch TV. The decor is definately retro decor, the 70's pink sink, tub, and toilet was great. Felt like I was at my... More

We really wanted a room closer to the south side of Nampa, but all the other motels/hotels were along the freeway on the north side, so we chose this one even though the phone number shown on Trip Advisor doesn't work and they didn't respond to our e-mail. Bad plan. We were told it was "The Best Room!" I feel... More

It's always difficult taking responsibility. But here it goes. First a big apology. To begin, I am very concerned about your safety. If possible, could you please provide more info on the dangerous brick obstacle. Could it be the landscape rock in the median? Venting, we have successfully used the same venting system for over sixty years. It consists of... More

Ok, no pool, no "free breakfast..." but if you like, clean, rooms, nicely appointed, personal attention, passionate owners. then come here. I loved this place. The fixtures in the bathroom were "retro," but carefully maintained.

I stayed three nights in August, 2012. The single bed room had a fridge, microwave, flat screen TV (about 27"), table and two chairs. WiFi is free but less than 1 megabit speed. Some time in the last year the rooms were painted and got new linoleum and water saver toilets in the bathrooms. Tubs and sinks are still pink,... More

Thank you for letting us know that our staff is helpful. And please, please let us know every possible way we can improve. Historic Hotels like ours take a lot of work, so we appreciate every compliment. I still get goose bumps thinking of the famous people who used the same rooms over sixty years ago.

I'm a single female relocating from out of state and needed a clean, secure, budget friendly place to stay that would also accept my two small, well-behaved dogs while I looked for permanent housing. The staff are so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend for short or long term. A+++++ is all I can say!
