5th time wasn't the charm

Pros: Used to like everything about this hotel but now not so much of anything ... big disappointment.
Cons: Beds need upgrade along with the pillows
Location: close to downtown and BSU
This is probably the fifth time we have stayed here, we liked it because you get a full kitchen, a fireplace and a decent sized bed. When we got settled in I noticed this time we had a frig, dishwasher and only a 2 burner stove. All the other times we have stayed we have had a full range with a oven. It was to be a valentines day weekend so I had brought 2 beautiful Rib eye steaks, huge Idaho baker potatoes, Garlic bread and a dozen shrimp to skewer for dinner. Now finding out we didn't have an oven as we have had in the past time we stayed I had to pan fry the steaks, shrimp and the bread and put the potato in the microwave. I created so much smoke the smoke detector went off and it notified the front desk so I got a call from them. Then when we went to bed the bed was so hard and uncomfortable I hardly slept a wink all night long. I don't know what has happened but I'm pretty sure that was my last stay at the Residence Inn Boise and that's to bad cuz they used to be a great place for a weekend get away. Thank God there are a lot of new hotels near by to pick from in the future.
