The rooms were big, quiet and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially with shuttle rides downtown, which was about a half hour walk, and pleasant. Breakfast was basic. A bar be a great addition. But there's a range of places to eat and drink across the parking lot.

Stayed here for a conference in downtown Boise - travel service picked it. The room was great, my check-in fabulous (they gave me my room early when I just expected to drop my bags. There is a large, comfortable breakfast room which doubles as a business center. My caution with my average rating is the location. It's in a office...

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. My room was very nice and had a beautiful view of the mountains. It was a connecting room, which I absolutely hate, but I never heard a sound from the connecting room. The room was very spacious. The breakfast area was huge. My only complaint was that the people tending to the breakfast...

On a revisit this Holiday Inn Express did not disappoint. The room (317) had nice mountain views and microwave and refrigerator behind cabinet doors. In room coffee is now by Keurig coffeemaker and housekeeping is generous with the kcups. The breakfast buffet, in addition to all else, now boasts an automatic pancake maker which quickly makes a good product. On...

The rooms were clean and the breakfast was fresh and had lots of choices. Staff was friendly even we arrived very late at night. We were able to walk to the downtown area and several good restaurants.

Travelling from SLC to Idaho stopped at this Holiday Inn Express - great location, close to the highway yet very quiet. Extremely nice and helpful hotel staff, including Moldavian born receptionist. Available late night snack, good breakfast, clean room. Nice décor of the hotel.

So this holiday inn was nice and clean. Decent breakfast bar and recently renovated. The bikes rental are cheap and you can leave them locked up anywhere downtown. It's a good location but if you do want to go to a decent restaurant nearby and don't have a car prepare to walk OR uber.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Its newly constructed so everything works for it. Rooms are clean and well managed. View from hotel is amazing. I enjoyed my daily nature walks next to Boise River. One major issue with the hotel is immature staff. Specially ones in the evening, I assume they are college dropouts and have no...
