We have stayed in many hotels in Boise and this is by far one of the nicest. The rooms were very clean and staff was nice. The restaurant and bar served very good hamburgers and the bartender was great. We will definitely stay here from now on.

I was impressed with the staff and facility from Saturday evening's check-in through Sunday's noon check-out.
I booked the room to attend a friend's birthday party in the bar downstairs, and thoroughly enjoyed my evening out.
My single king room was clean, comfortable, and more spacious than I had anticipated.
The bar has a friendly open layout, and the bartender was very nice. I had a couple of my favorite beer and a great burger.
The next morning I rose to a soft knock at the door, and quickly devoured my room service breakfast in the morning sun shining in from the balcony.
I'm quite happy with the experience I had here and will choose Red Lion where possible when I travel.

I stayed Friday and Saturday night and had the most amazing time. I had originally planned just a birthday party for myself in Characters Sports Bar along with the room. The room was beautiful and the service from the staff was as always excellent and to make things even better, most all of the staff was in on the fact that my boyfriend was going to propose to me that night. They all were so wonderful and accomadating to help make sure things went off without a hitch. Thank you Red Lion Boise! :D

Everyone from the time you check in you're greeted with a smile. I travel for work quite a bit and I always stay here. I have stayed at many of the Boise area hotels and as far as I'm concerned this hotel is the best.

I stayed here on a long road trip when my group decided we were too tired to press on around 4pm. We did an online search for pet-friendly hotels and this one was not on our way but we were thankful we drove to it. Everyone was exhausted and the thought of unpacking and going to find dinner was daunting, so when we found out they had a restaurant we were thrilled. The lobby is beautiful and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The restaurant was more of a lounge but it was low-key enough and not busy so our toddler old could run off some pent up energy from the car a little bit while we had a decent dinner and a few drinks. The pool and hot tub were very clean and well-maintained. This hotel was a breath of fresh air and we had a relaxing, great night's sleep. If I remember correctly they even gave us a treat for our dog at check in!
