We love to eat (and drink) at the Modern Bar when we're in Boise. It's our favorite, and go-to place. They always have a unique and delicious food special and the bartender makes the most amazing craft cocktails.

Have had drinks there a couple times, and dinner once. Food and service was fine. We don't like the tight quarters and "modern" decor. On a Friday or Saturday evening, forget coming here to eat. It's just too packed.

Nice hotel. Very comfortable bed. Good location, walking distance to everything, we never had a car on our visit. They pick you up free at the airport (short wait) and drop you off. Check in was easy and accommodating. The hotel room doors are pretty heavy, so in the morning there's a lot of slamming doors. Overall, I'd recommend.

This is a great little hotel that was converted from an old Travel lodge. The rooms are modern, clean, and comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar/restaurant has fantastic craft cocktails, a fun wine list that I did not expect in Boise, and excellent food. And the best part is the cost! I can't believe how... More

If you're into mid century you will like this revitalized travel lodge. The bedroom is large the bathroom small. The window faces nothing but parking lot. My room was accessed by a secured corridor which was better than the rest that were outside. It is functional and a short walk from the core downtown.

Fantastic stay. Hip hotel, as described by other reviewer's. Just a couple of blocks up from the Greenbelt. Conveniently located to downtown. My new favorite downtown hotel in Boise. Oh yeah and the staff is terrific.

I stayed at the Modern Hotel last week. The shuttle driver told me it was a revamped Travel Lodge, and it has that retro look and feel. The front staff were friendly and helpful. I asked to have a quiet room and was given room 228, upstairs away from the lobby. I did not hear any noises and slept well.... More

The bar offers a limited menu of fun and imaginative items. Good selection of bar drinks. We ate outside, had drinks, appetizers and a light dinner. The staff was prompt, friendly and attentive. Try the Apple Cheddar Gallette for a wonderful marriage of flavors.

Rooms were nicely redone to a high and clean modern standard. The only thing missing was a place (i.e. couple more hooks) to hang towels & cosmetic kits. The service was extremely gracious, friendly and professional. There was an event in the courtyard the evening we checked in, and the amped voices made it a bit uncomfortable,. But the manager...

I loved this place but I like funky and different. I like small boutique places instead of the big chains if I have a choice. The location is awesome, the free bikes to borrow make down town and BSU and easy ride. The bar/restaurant are really cool and the food and drinks are great. Really good service and staff overall....
