La Quinta Inn & Suites Boise Airport
Ranked #19 of 58 Hotels in Boise
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2012

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express with a little bit older rooms. However, the staff, the level of service and the overall convenience make this a great hotel for business travelers as well as families visiting Boise State University. It's five minutes from the airport and five minutes from downtown Boise. A solid and free continental breakfast included with room rate.

We had a great experience at this hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean room. Free full service gym access. Flew in checked in and went to the downtown area just in time for Octoberfest! Streets were closed and what fun!! GREAT experience.

Spent a couple nights here while traveling this summer. This is an older building that is showing her age. The room was fairly clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was decent. The air-conditioner was absolutely needed during the 100+ temperatures, but it was loud and clunky and made sleeping difficult.

Room was not very clean and smelled. Bed was hard & pillows were cheap. Bathroom small and old. It had hair on floor. I could have stayed at the nice Holiday Inn around the corner for the same price. Still regreting checking in. Do not stay here. Not up to Holiday Inn standards.

The hotel was just bad. What a disappointment. The lobby smelled pretty bad, like cheap detergent. It was clean overall, but oh the smell! The lady that helped us was very nice, so they got that going for them. Gave us room 100 (stay away). It smelled like someone had smoked in that room for the last 20 years and then decided to quit and cover the smell with lots of chemicals. The result was an incredibly awful smell that gave me a massive headache. The A/C unit was loud and came off and on every 20 minutes or so. Try sleeping through that! The shower was one of those hand showers that hang on a bar and you can move up and down. Problem was, it didn't stay up. So if you're over 5 feet tall, you'd have to duck to wash your hair. The walls were super thin and I could hear all my neighbors talking. The plus was that it had an HD tv, which was great for watching the Olympics. The breakfast was just ok. Just what you'd expect from this type of hotel. I paid $90 for the night with my company discount (was $110 before). Should have paid $20 more and stayed at the regular Holiday Inn, which I accidentally went to first thinking it was my hotel. That one looked nice and new and the lobby didn't smell like death.

This is a pet friendly property. We paid a fee of $20 for 2 pets.

There was a coupon issue when we checked in. We found this hotel through a hotel coupon book. When I asked the clerk if they would honor the coupon (it was 2:00 in the afternoon on a Monday so it wasn't like the place was booked solid) she wasn't sure and had to ask another employee who said slowly and cautiously, "yeah, what the heck, go ahead and honor it." I have a hard time believing that at 2:00 in the afternoon they've filled their quota of cheap rooms. It's an artificial quota anyway so why not just honor the coupon as advertised? Not like I was calling all my friends and relatives to come down to the HIE and get a cheap room. Besides, after adding in the pet fee and taxes the room was still a $100.

The hidden fee appeared on our express check out. It was minimal but we were charged taxes on the pet fee. Really? No one else has done that.

Despite that the property was good and breakfast was also good.

Please note, if you're traveling with a pet there is an excellent park within walking distance just down the side street about 2 blocks or so with plenty of grass and even play equipment for kids. Definitely worth looking into.
