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....

Great little property, if you like mid century this is a must stay place. We booked a queen suite, two rooms, both private, fun courtyard, bar, staff super friendly! Try the restaurant "the dish" down the street, and be sure to enjoy a drink at the bar here!

The Modern is, as the name implies, a modern, fun place to stay. The bar mixes up some great cocktails, the staff is attentive and friendly, and the rooms are sleek and comfortable. I don't often go to Boise, but when I do I will be staying at the Modern.

The Modern Hotel offers a great stay with spacious, clean, modern decor, large bathroom and comfy bed. Excellent service and help from reception.
