“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Being a gold reward member with Marriott I had never stayed at the Hampton Inns, but this time around I got a good rate and decided to try it, mainly for its location. Would definitely recommend it! First of all it's right in the heart of downtown Boise, a long walk from the football stadium (I was there for the Broncos game). You can actually take the free downtown shuttle to and from the stadium, but I decided to walk (about a mile and a half). Rooms are nice, spacious, clean, with a good view of the city. Breakfast was the best free breakfast I ever had. You have your choice of eggs, waffles, sausage, bacon, cereals, yogurt, fruit, muffins, breads, milk, tea, coffee, you name it. And the lovely girls at the front desk make you feel right at home. Thanks Hampton and thanks Boise! Good hotel, better people!

This is one of the nicer Hampton Inn's I've stayed at. It's in a great location in regards to activities, restaurants and bars. The rooms are large, clean and nice. The staff is extremely accommodating. Book early though as its close to BSU campus and game days make it almost impossible to get a reservation.

I stayed here on a business trip and I must say, fabulous hotel. The location is perfect as it is near the BSU campus, in the heart of the arts district in downtown Boise, and near the local college bar scene. The hotel itself is also very nice as the breakfast is top notch......the bagel toppers one morning and then the southwest omelets the next were amazing. Great overall variety in the breakfast. Also, they serve coffee, tea, and cookies all day which is nice. Parking garage onsite is convenient and having to use your card to get to your floor in the elevator adds another sense of security. This is a MUST stay in Boise and I'll be back soon!

We stopped in Boise as we were travelling towards California. The hotel was nicely located and had great rooms. Breakfast was very average. Service was good. Although i stay well over 50 stay per year at the Hilton family with Gold membership, the hotel did give any upgrades for our room.

The hotel is clean and modern and within walking distance of anyplace downtown. An adjacent parking garage is reasonably priced ($10/day). The room was very spacious, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was better than average. And, overall, the hotel was an excellent value. Definitely one of the nicest Hamptons we've seen.

If your idea of a Hampton Inn is the cookie-cutter establishment you'll find on many roadsides, prepare to have your conceptions challenged by this property. Since Hampton converted an old brick high-rise instead of building its own place in this location, it's much more charming than your average motel. Staff is friendly, and both times I've stayed there I've been moved into higher grade rooms because they had the room. This is the kind of thing that keeps a customer coming back. The common area in the hotel lobby is enormous and very well appointed. What it most has going for it though is the location, right downtown. It means having $10 added to your room fee for the parking garage, but under normal circumstances (meaning normal days or weekends when there's not some event going up, when Hampton has a tendency to jack up the prices) this is well worth paying since you can easily walk the center city, the greenbelt and to everything else Boise offers. As long as the prices are reasonable, I definitely recommend this place. If not, you'd do well by the Marriott Courtyard on South Broadway, which tends to keep their prices low nearly all the time.

This hotel had nice clean rooms and good breakfasts, but what made the trip most enjoyable was its location, We didn't need a car. We could walk everywhere. It was our first trip to Boise and we loved it!
