From the hotel's picture on the website I knew that this was going to be a special place... and since I needed to stay for three nights, I wanted it to be like home. Could tell by mapquest that it was on the outskirts of town (and on a road which led to the Boise River and a dam)... which I greatly appreciated, tho it's some miles from City Center (for those who want to be IN the city). It's what I'd consider exercise walking distance from an Albertsons (across the road), and on a road that leads up to more shopping closer into town by several miles... with a Fred Meyer superstore (for groceries and everything else). There's a Perkins Restaurant and Jack in the Box right next door... very convenient. Also, there is a generic outlet mall a mile away with clothing and shoe stores; Vitamin World; Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and a ktichen store.
The rooms are beautiful, and I got a King studio room at the front of the hotel with a view of the mountains (and two windows!!!)... so I could stare out at the hills from bed as the sun went down. As someone said already, the pool is small and the rooms compact, but they're rustic elegance and that makes it so cozy.
It is a waffle breakfast with hard boiled eggs, yogurt and breakfast burritos you can microwave; juices, milk; bread, rolls, etc., etc, all you could need. Coffee is available all day. Computer in beautiful lobby. The staff has been so helpful and I found the place to be impeccably clean.
I wish I was in this area more, because I'd love to stay here again!
