I really enjoyed my night's stay at the Riverside. My room was upstairs in the main building (above the restaurant) and was well appointed with a large TV, desk, and 2 lounge chairs. The bed was comfortable and the only noise I heard was from the air conditioning unit. I rented a bike ($5/hr) and took advantage of the extensive... More

I spent the last two nights here in a king suite overlooking the pool area. The bed was very comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. There is a nice walking path adjacent to the hotel the follows the river.

The hotel is right on the greenbelt which has amazing trails that go through the park and lead into downtown. We rented bikes from the hotel and cruised easily into downtown and enjoyed all of the quaint shops and the beautiful Capitol building. We enjoyed happy hour at the sand bar and the band playing. The pool was nice and... More

This hotel is very large; with lots of people. We were in a wing down from the front entrance and it didn't have an elevator; so we had to go to another wing to use their elevator. We were assigned a Riverside room but upon check-in we were changed to a suite....still wanted the Riverside with a patio. I understand... More

This location on the river is impossible to beat in the Boise area. The Sands patio bar is excellent and they had free live music while we were there. They also had an old style lounge that was very cool although its not open all of the time. The only drawback was the non-smoking room smelled like smoke. The breakfast... More

The corridors of this hotel are like a maze. The room style was typical of the era it was built (early 80s?), but the bedding, furnishings, and appliances have all been updated. The room came with the complimentary breakfast buffet, which had many hot selections. The Greenbelt runs by the property. We had a good stay.

We were participating in the Boise Balloon Festival this last weekend. Despite the remodeling going on around the hotel, it was a great place to stay. There was live music every day and into the evening, the pool was a great place to meet up for a drink or two. The weather cooperated for the most part. The rooms are... More

Always love our stay. Have been here often and recommend to everyone. Love this place! Lots to do at and around the hotel. Breakfast buffet is wonderful, love the Mimosas. Price is very reasonable and I often find cheaper prices online with both the hotel direct web site and other hotel searches.

This older hotel is massive, with multiple restaurants and lounges. It is used for conventions and large meetings, but welcomed the two of us. Staff was very friendly. Bed was great! The hotel is showing its age, but a stay here will be worth your while.
