Best westerns are the hotel of choice for us. This hotel is one of the reasons why. the staff was extremely helpful and I felt like they enjoyed their jobs and were not bothered by any of the question we asked. the room was comfortable. We extended our stay a 2nd night and went back and stayed here insead of one of the other area hotels.

This Best Western does not tout itself enough. It is literally like arriving at a beautiful Western Lodge that you might expect to see in Yosemite or Montana. The front entry room is awesome with big timbered ceilings and a hospitality room with fireplaces and comfortable lounging couches and chairs. The staff is outstanding, caring and helpful. I would go to Boise just to stay at this Hotel. All the amenities are wonderful. Thank you Best Western for a wonderful stay. I am an author and am on the road a LOT! This was one of my nicest stays yet in a Best Western Hotel and I almost exclusively use Best Western because of how reliable they have always been.

We were greatly impressed with the excellent and friendly service throughout our stay. From the desk staff, to the housekeepers, we found everyone exceptionally helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the cleanliness, and the spacious, quiet, and most comfortable room. They even offered cookies in the evening. And if that were not enough, we enjoyed the wonderful assortment of hot and cold foods offered for breakfast.

The BW Northwest Lodge is a very nice hotel with comfortable beds, & pretty decor. I'ts only drawback is the location. It was a little hard to see from the roadway (we drove by it the first time . . .needs better signage). Also, not convenient to restaurants other that fast food which close pretty early on week nights. Still, if you're just stopping for the night, it is handy.

Our stay was excellent. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great breakfast selection. Pool was small but kids still had a great time. It was very quiet here. Would stay here again when we are in Boise.

We did have an issue upon check-in, we got to the room and before the door was even opened the smell of smoke was heavy. Whoever had the non-smoking room prior basically chain smoked the entire time. That's not the hotel fault BUT why the maid didn't tell the manager and stop it from being rented until cleaned is a problem. So, we moved, next door. That room had apparently had water damage and the carpet is raised up in several places, On the bright side, front desk was very pleasant, the bed was good, the room clean and the 8:30 cookies & milk were very nice. Breakfast was iffy, one side of the toaster didn't work and although the server said she knew that, there was no note or indication it didn't work, so people were waiting for their hot toast only to remove it minutes later, cold, to wait again. The pancake batter had solidified and the coffee was just luke warm in the thermal pot. Would I stay there again? YES, because of the cleanliness & bed and I assume they'll fix the breakfast issues.

I really loved this hotel for a number of reasons... Awesome, clean room, very quiet considering the freeway is right there. GREAT hot tub that was actually HOT and the jets REALLY worked. The breakfast was good, staff very friendly & helpful. The bottle of water in the room was a nice touch. I will definitely stay here again.... everything was GREAT, all the way around! The prices are a little high for my liking, but then again the price of a motel room is too high no matter where you stay in my opinion...
