I never stayed in a Travelodge, but remember seeing them as a kid, and I really liked the work the Modern team has done to make the property a unique mid-century modern travel experience. Granted the place isn't opulent, but it is extremely comfortable and well-turned out, with Aveda toiletries, complimentary business center, continental breakfast with fresh-squeezed juices, rainshower bath, i-pod dock, and great bedding with triple sheeting, which is becoming less and less common.
The bar area and outdoor courtyard make it easy to stay at the hotel to socialize, but the rest of the city is just a few minutes away by foot. As others have mentioned, the Boise Greenbelt is a great place to exercise, Big City Coffee just down the street makes for a good stop, and the shops, restaurants, and capitol building make Boise a pleasant place to knock off a day.
The hotel just switched over to the complimentary service of the Boise Shuttle to and from the airport. I called the hotel upon deplaning and only waited a couple of minutes for the shuttle, which took only 20 minutes both going to the hotel and back to the airport. Boise lacks a true luxury hotel and I don't find the Grove to be impressive, so I lean toward either Hotel 43 or The Modern. You get a bit more luxury at Hotel 43, but for something memorable and unique, The Modern is the game to beat right now.
