“Good for a quick stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The BW Northwest Lodge is a very nice hotel with comfortable beds, & pretty decor. I'ts only drawback is the location. It was a little hard to see from the roadway (we drove by it the first time . . .needs better signage). Also, not convenient to restaurants other that fast food which close pretty early on week nights. Still, if you're just stopping for the night, it is handy.

Our stay was excellent. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great breakfast selection. Pool was small but kids still had a great time. It was very quiet here. Would stay here again when we are in Boise.

We did have an issue upon check-in, we got to the room and before the door was even opened the smell of smoke was heavy. Whoever had the non-smoking room prior basically chain smoked the entire time. That's not the hotel fault BUT why the maid didn't tell the manager and stop it from being rented until cleaned is a problem. So, we moved, next door. That room had apparently had water damage and the carpet is raised up in several places, On the bright side, front desk was very pleasant, the bed was good, the room clean and the 8:30 cookies & milk were very nice. Breakfast was iffy, one side of the toaster didn't work and although the server said she knew that, there was no note or indication it didn't work, so people were waiting for their hot toast only to remove it minutes later, cold, to wait again. The pancake batter had solidified and the coffee was just luke warm in the thermal pot. Would I stay there again? YES, because of the cleanliness & bed and I assume they'll fix the breakfast issues.

I really loved this hotel for a number of reasons... Awesome, clean room, very quiet considering the freeway is right there. GREAT hot tub that was actually HOT and the jets REALLY worked. The breakfast was good, staff very friendly & helpful. The bottle of water in the room was a nice touch. I will definitely stay here again.... everything was GREAT, all the way around! The prices are a little high for my liking, but then again the price of a motel room is too high no matter where you stay in my opinion...

We stayed here two nights on our way to Yellowstone. It was a terrific experience as we played cards in the dining area both nights until late. Breakfast was substantial enough to keep us and good. All the staff was helpful and always available and yes...care about what they do. No alcohol but the coffee and cookies each evening were a nice touch. Good location near the freeway but no noise.
