I'm not sure what happened to the previous reviewer but we had a very pleasant say at the Red Lion. We usually stay at the Hampton Inn in Boise but we were travelling with our dog so we decided to give the Red Lion a shot (I'd had a horrible experience there a long time ago and had avoided it ever since). We're glad we did!
The staff was very pleasant and accommodating and they were very nice about the dog. The hotel is a bit older but the room was clean, quiet and comfortable and they put us at the end of one wing right next to the designated dog area (really small but much appreciated!).
We liked the outdoor hot-tub - it was much nicer to be outside than inside at the Hampton Inn pool area which can be crowded and loud.
Its an easy walk into the heart of downtown and an inexpensive cab ride back. We were pleasantly surprised by our stay and I'm sure we'll be staying again, even without the dog!
