I stayed in a King room on the first floor in the interior portion near the ice machine- the room itself felt a bit small but comfortable and the bathroom is huge. We had dinner in the restaurant our first night, which was fantastic and the free breakfast is also great. My only real complaint is that noise travels easily,...

I've seen this hotel listed for awhile now, I just hadn't tried it out yet. I'm sorry to have waited this long. A very nice hotel. Clean room, comfortable bed, and an awesome shower. Combine that with a welcome gift of Idaho spud candy and you can't go wrong.

This was a spur of the moment trip and we decided to book the day off and we were excited to get a room after calling literally three hours before we got there. We were welcomed with an Idaho Spud Bar and a friendly desk staff. Our room was adjacent from the bar, by the fire places. It did get...

Emmypants, (Adorable) Thank you for your thoughtful review. I’m glad a spontaneous decision drove you to stay at the Modern Hotel. I always love a good surprise. We recommend that our guests who aren’t interested in a lively evening, request a quiet room when booking their stay. We will do our best to select a room away from the revelers.

Darling little place within walking distance of downtown. Hotel has been remodeled and given a cool vibe. Very clean and comfortable and the front desk clerks are very friendly and helpful. We'd stay again for sure.

Lovely place with nice classy rooms. Trendy decor. Balcony at the rooms on the second floor. Fun bar and breakfast area with a good variety of things to eat. Only a short walk from all the action in Boise!

The Modern is one of our top 3 places to stay in Boise, (and we live here!) The cleanliness is consistent, beds are very comfortable, the design is simple and elegant, and the 'in-room cabinet store' is extremely well stocked; I have never seen another one like it. Amazing food and drinks right down stairs! The only missing star is...

Don't judge a book by it's cover . I live here in Boise and this place use to be the old travel lodge. Not now ! Beautifully redone ... great beds... every convenience you can imagine and the bar and court yard are great. The welcome is sweet with an Idaho Spud bar and the staff friendly and helpful. Rooms...

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.
