    The employees at this venue were extremely helpful, communicative and welcoming! I would stay here again! They went out of their way to make everything smooth and pleasant. Breakfast was great! Only disappointing thing was no maid service daily.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Absolutely terrible

    Had to change rooms because the air conditioning system did not work. The maintenance person had no clue and just told us to close the drapes even though the air conditioner sounded like a 747 taking off and the temperature could not be changed.The next room had a bloody comforter that was not noticed until we got into bed. Shabby towels. The people at the front desk were very accommodating however and helped us to change rooms. Kudos to the front desk

    Perfect location

    The hotel is very clean and comfortable. I really like the location and access to all of downtown Boise. The parking is free and easy to find. Overall, perfect place for us to stay when visiting our family in Boise.

    The room was clean, but the windows were cloudy. Refrigerator made some weird noises, but not too bad. What seems to have gone down hill is the food served in the mornings. Don't get anything made out of the eggs. It taste like cardboard they threw into a microwave.

    Best Beds

    Beds were the most comfortable bed I think I've slept in the past 4 months living out of hotels. Only odd thing was after coming back from a half a day gone no maid service was done but a candy wrapper was in my garbage can I'm sure how it got there. Also when I asked for a vacuum I was told they did not have one. During checkout the gal at the front desk was amazing and apologized for the service which made me feel taken care of. I would definitely go back again though.
