Reviewed February 1, 2014

We stayed at the Boise Guest House two nights the end of January. We loved everything about it. We stayed in the Animal Trophy Suite and were pleasantly surprised to find it had its own private entrance. The decorations were warm and inviting, and the room was very clean. We loved the little added touches: brownies upon our check-in, the warm fire on the television, the eclectic art everywhere, and the fabulous location. We could see the dome of the capitol building from our front door, and we walked downtown to breakfast and dinner each day. We can not wait to return.

Clean comfortable atmosphere! Feels like home! The bedding was high quality and the furnishings were modern yet comfortable. We will make this a yearly adventure away from kids and enjoy beautiful downtown Boise! Next time we will rent the bikes as well.

We stayed in the Nature suite which was very comfortable, quite and had everything we needed for our stay. The house is in a great central location. It was close to cafes, tourist locations etc. We liked the privacy and ease of self check-in. I would recommend it and stay here again (maybe try another room for fun).

THANK YOU for writing such a nice review on Tripadvisor! It helps other guests like yourself find our accommodation who are interested in experiencing a more private, hands-off approach to Inn-Keeping. Our check in is designed to be easy for all of our guests! I am happy to hear you enjoyed the Nature Suite. We hope you return so that you can stay in one of our upstairs suites, the Attic or the Treetop. Warm Regards,
Eve-Marie

We came for a winter snow trip and to see friends. It is a nice restored turn of the century house, with cool furniture and art. It is located in the interesting North End, very close to everything we needed. The travel suite is spacious and well appointed, although, because of the self check in, we had to call management to find it! They were very prompt and responsive.

We had a nice stay in the Guest House. Great , clean, comfy room with all the B&B feel. Breakfast was delivered to our room to order.
Will definitely be back. We did not get a chance to rent the bikes but in Boise, it will be the next thing on our list to do. The house is located perfectly to the north end of Boise, the coop and downtown. Very close to campus. So with all the things to do in Boise, so close it made it great for the weekend visit . WE have family in the neighborhood so the location is really important. Much nicer than the Holiday Inn or any other little hotel LR

We booked this for our wedding night and could not have been happier! We needed something suite sized for a little more space for getting ready and this place was SO cute and perfect. I wanted to move in! Everything was cozy and comfortable and in a great Boise location. There was even so much thought put into all of the little details, a personal note congratulating us and wishing us well, flower petals on the bed, cute little jars for coffee etc. I would recommend this to anybody!

This is NOT a bed and breakfast, even though it is listed as such. There is no one on premise. It is self check in self help. There are no restaurants nearby, certainly not next door as we were told. If you are looking for a small, clean, room with no interaction with proprietors nor clerks, this will work for you, but if you are looking for a bed and breakfast experience where you sit down with the owners and chat over breakfast or even tea or wine in afternoon/evening, then look elsewhere. If you stay here, be prepared to get up and drive for breakfast. There was a coffee pot in the room, with limited choice of decaf, french roast, or tea, and just enough to make 2 cups, with powdered creamer. This was way over priced for what we got.

Hello, Nancy!
I'm sorry you don't agree we are a bed and breakfast and felt compelled to write a review of our accommodation on a national website. If you have visited our website and found us independently, we are self-described as "boutique lodging", and by design with a hands off approach to Innkeeping. Had you read the 100+ tripadvisor reviews, you would have a sense of our unique situation. This review is suspicious to me -- not only can I not locate a Nancy H in our database from Park City, we also definitely serve breakfast from a french bistro down the street,.. hand-delivered by myself, the owner! In addition, more coffee (and actual vanilla and plain creamers in each suite) is always available via my friendly guest services staff on site every day from 11-3. I am sorry you were disappointed in your stay. If I could actually find you in our database, I would refund your stay and call you personally to apologize for what seems to be a dismal stay.
Best wishes in your travels.
Kind Regards,
Eve-Marie
