I was also happy with this hotel for my honeymoon. The staff were friendly, the vibe was good, our food was great, and the beds were comfortable! This is one of my top choices for hotels around the West. I have stayed in several Red Lion Hotels elsewhere and I recommend them!

We have been traveling from North Carolina to Montana to Idaho and have stayed in hotels for the past 6 nights and the Red Lion Hotel has been the best of our trip.

Probably the most comfortable bed I've slept on in a hotel, and I'm in hotels 3 nights a week. Vans ran on time and convenient times to and from airport. Jimmy is a safe and friendly driver, and front desk Pedro and Tuania are friendly, courteous and accommodating.

Great hotel to stay at in downtown Boise. The price is excellent and the staff is extremely friendly. Thank you to Joy and Lupe who helped us make our stay even better. The van driver, Jimmy, was very on point and on time getting us to and from the airport. The red lion has my business from here on out.

He was informing us of the best rooms to be able to see the fireworks being that it's 4th or July. And let us know that Sarah at the front desk was super sweet and would... More

The hotel's name makes it seem like it's right in downtown Boise and close to all the shops, restaurants, shopping, etc. It's probably a mile walk through a not very pleasant area to reach the liveliness of downtown Boise. It's also a very unpleasant walk to reach the peaceful Riverwalk. The rooms were ample in size, clean, good WiFi, and... More

As soon as I walked in the room, I fell in love with it. Hard wood flooring is great. As soon as I got into town, Jimmy was there quick to pick me up in the shuttle. Great personality too. Sarah had me checked in and in my room with a great smile. That goes a long way! Great job... More

Stayed at this hotel with family and was impressed with how friendly their employees were. Front desk ladies, Taunia, Sarah and Danielle, went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Our van driver to the airport, Jimmy, very knowledgeable and the most friendly van driver I've encountered.
