Our room was located on the second floor through the door, away from the action of the bar. The hotel lives up to its name; the room was modern and minimally decorated. The beds were firm and comfortable and the pillows were great. The shower was fabulous; it was large and had two shower heads. The only quirk that was...

Nice bar with a good selection of drinks. Little pricey tho. They had outdoor fire pits the where nice for the smokers. All in all not a bad place to stop in for a drink, defiantly off the beat path. So go have fun.

good downtown location in rehabbed motor lodge but the staff were very friendly, helpful and good followup when I left an item behind in the room. Nice outdoor space for after-hours visiting and beverage. Ask for a quiet room. Bike, restaurant and breakfast were offered but not sampled on this visit.

I adored this hotel! We spent the weekend here in Boise and the Modern's got charm. The staff is very friendly and genuine; they definitely went above and beyond for us. The restaurant and bar menu have an upscale feel, and the atmosphere is excellent. It was a sunny November weekend, and each night the courtyard was buzzing with music,...

We wanted to stay at a hotel that had some class and soul, so a quick Google search for "boutique hotels in Boise" led us to find this little gem. As huge fans of mid-century modern design, we were instantly drawn to The Modern. Awesome decor and vibe...super pleasant staff...comfortable rooms with great amenities. The hotel by itself would be...

The Modern is indeed modern, stylish, comfortable, and priced right. Close and walkable to the historic city center, or ride one of the shared bikes. The Modern a former motel that was renovated by some talented folks. The restaurant/bar is terrific - beautiful food and craft cocktails, staffed with super friendly, helpful Boise hipsters. The room and motel were super...

Just because this hotel is not in the 'luxury' hotel category doesn't mean it's not one of the best places to stay. Easy walk to downtown or you can borrow one of their bikes for free. The staff was awesome, the room clean, bed comfortable. The delicious continental breakfast offerings were fresh fruit, yogurt, croissants, fresh juice, coffee & tea....

This Hotel is the one to stay at if downtown Boise is your destination. To say The Modern supports the arts would be an understatement. With a dedicated TV channel airing Sundance shorts, local artist murals gracing the exterior and Art Deco interiors, this place is way cooler than anything else downtown. The management is excellent. Very friendly and accommodating....

Modern style rooms with upgraded bathroom. Very clean hotel. Staff was really nice. Very cool bar scene with outdoor fire pits. Easy walk into downtown. Had bicycles available though we didn't have time to use them.

We love to eat (and drink) at the Modern Bar when we're in Boise. It's our favorite, and go-to place. They always have a unique and delicious food special and the bartender makes the most amazing craft cocktails.
