Pleasant room right on the river and walking trail. The check-in staff was fantastic especially Brenda! Fresh chocolate chip cookies were a bonus for a tired traveler. 200 character minimum is more than I want to write.

We booked this hotel for a short trip because of good ratings and it was listed as a 3+star hotel. Customer service was terrible!! The Manager, Natazja Huskey was rude and sarcastic, clearly not caring about customer service or our happiness with our room. Beds are the smallest Queen beds I've ever seen. Maid did not clean our room or...

The room was very bug and roomy. I had a balcony the view was beautiful. Had breakfast everyday. Nice and quiet. Needed a place to charge my phone and more TV channels.Nice place to visit I can say I have been to Boise Idaho very cold. The last day it snowed hard to drive because they don't clean the streets.

Thank you for the great review. Yes our rooms are big and roomy and we are very pleased that you enjoyed all that our hotel has to offer. Boise has had a lot of snow this year and the roads have indeed been quite slushy. Glad you are safe. Hope to see you soon on your next visit. Thank you!

The room was very dated, that is to say old and smelly. If you think your going to get a suite, think again, better be sure in advance as our room was small. You will also need to plug in your own tv and phone. The hallways need to be vacuumed and you will be able to hear your neighbors....

This hotel had one of the nicest indoor pools on our trip of the Northwest. In addition the rooms were quite spacious and what really was special about this hotel was the underfloor heating in the bathroom.
