It’s s bit rundown albeit clean. The gearing and cooling system is quite old rendering the air conditioning in the late July heat less than effective.

This was a great gathering place for my family. Facility was clean and great. Front desk staff was terrific. Housekeeping did not do anything in room for 3 out of 5 days. Only spruced up when specifically tracked down and asked. From check-in day there was hair in the bathtub drain. Although bed linens were nice a tight at the foot of the bed they were sloppy nad pulled out completely at the top so without maid service you had to completely take apart and remake your bed everyday. Looks like a great dog facility; many people had dogs here.

we stayed at 3 red lions this trip and this was by far the best one. the only thing we didn't like about red lions is that they have taken all the carpet out of the rooms.

There was trash down our hallway, trash from the previous person left in our doorway. The lady who checked me in forgot to tell me that there would be an extra 40 dollar charge for my room. Aside from that she wasn’t very friendly. I understand we all have life going on and outside of work stresses but leave that stuff at home and do a good job at work. I’m very upset that I spent quite a bit for bad service. I will never stay here again.

The shower was hard to figure out, the dots for hot and cold water seemed reversed. The wood on the desk was peeling. I couldn't figure out how to turn off the floor lamp other than unplugging. Otherwise, it was clean and well equiped- good towels, and toiletries but no robe.

The Red Lion in my opinion is the best place to stay in Boise. It has a long tradition of being a clean, classy hotel. Always a pleasure to stay here.
