Nampa, Idaho
Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

I reserved four nights. I stayed in a very cold room (sub 58F) the first night. They said "no one else is complaining" and that I was simply being difficult. No solutions offered so I left. Cost me TWO nights charges. However tonight I will be staying in a warm room without my feet wrapped in my down coat.

Hello Pattiy, Thank you for celebrating Valentine's Day with us. I agree, it is so nice to not have to worry about driving after a night of fun. Just go to your room and get some rest and get up the next morning and have someone else make you breakfast and clean up. We all need that once in awhile....

Great service, friendly staff. The hotel has a great winery behind it and is located on the river. The restaurant was good too. Great breakfast buffet. The front desk staff and the bar staff are great. Sales staff is very helpful

We decided to treat ourselves to night out for valentines day. The hotel was great and we especially loved the food at dinner and breakfast! The hotel could us a little update as it is showing its age but the room was clean and pleasant.

We held a big conference here last week and have been for years. The staff is always amazing, helpful, friendly and accommodating. Islam mursalov and David Pratt are amazing Banquet captions and are always there when you need them and take a lot of stress out of running a conference. Angle was very prompt with our breaks and when we...

We went for a weekend getaway to celebrate our birthdays and Valentines Day and had a fantastic experience. Treated so well by all the staff, especially the restaurant crew and wanted to acknowledge them by name: Sara, Rebecca, Cindy, Carson, and the manager Jonathon. What a terrific staff! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, with much thanks to them! The room was lovely...

The hotel is very well maintained and located in an easily accessible location. The restaurant has very good foot as well. The staff is amazing - some of them have been there for 10+ years and seem to remember my face! Very personal service.

Although we like to try new things, we don't seem to be able to bring ourselves to even try other hotels when visiting Boise. I can't imagine a property that offers such comfort, spaciousness, warmth/friendliness from all staff, and awesome walks along the river into town.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, fabulous breakfast buffet. Stayed in winter, but may come back in summer to enjoy outdoor pool and the Sandbar. Had a nice view of the Boise River. My only concern is that the property is so big, it was a long walk from our room to the lobby restaurant area, but no biggie if you're fit...
