My wife and I stayed here two nights on business and were pleased with the facilities. While it is definately an older hotel (carpeting needs to be replaced and interior decorating updated) it is a reasonably good value. Our business rate was $99 per night plus taxes, but we enjoyed the very clean pool and hot tub, nightly with almost no additional hotel guests. The businiess lounge is available using your room key with internet access, printing and a small, although not private, meeting area. There is a poolside pub with live music in the evening and a small restaurant off the lobby area. While we did not eat in either one, the food was reported to be good. There is only one elevator, which meant lugging bags up the stairs to our second floor room. I would suspect anyone with disabilities would be given a ground floor room.
The hotel's location for access to the highway for westbound travel to the local mall (approximately 1-2 miles away) is easy. Most interesting, however, is the access to the 35 mile paved river trail that sits between the hotel and the Boise River. Approximately 150 yards downstream is the city's newly constructed (June 2012) river recreation area, which allows for kayaking and body boarding on a man-made perpetual wave. Although we did not participate due to time, a local water sports shop rents gear within the park. Most of the people having fun were wearing wetsuits, but quite a few wore regular swimsuits. Regardless, we thought it was a unique feature of the area and a plus to the hotel.
