This is our go-to place for Boise in summer. First disappointing experience we have had.

This is an event center that happens to have hotel rooms. Breakfast was the best, wait staff was slow and disinterested, neither pleasant or unpleasant.

We were there for the NCAA mens basketball tournament, so it was in March and we didn't use any outside facilities. Staff was friendly and helpful; rooms comfortable; food good. What more can I say?

our only disappointing stay

Pros: location, breakfasts
Location: located on the Boise River w/lots of geese. Great walking path that goes for miles, easy access to downtown
There was a music concert event at the hotel the night we were there. The room they gave us was too close and therefore VERY noisy. We called the front desk 3 times before the noise was stopped. The room was in the oldest part of the hotel and we will never stay in the old part again. We've stayed in the new part several times in the past, which has always been wonderful. We will insist on the new part in the future. Their breakfasts, (complimentary) are wonderful as is the hotel location (on the Boise River and a wonderful walking path).

So happy with our stay

We were so happy with our stay on the way to the family reunion, we booked 2 rooms for our return trip. We travelled with 4 adults and a baby. We had adjoining rooms on the first floor; it was sooooo comfy and quiet (even though the hotel was booked). Room service was fast and awesome; the pool was awesome; the staff was awesome! We have a new destination! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

Friendly staff. Nice shuttle service to downtown; great outdoor pool; delicious brunch. Hotel under renovation right now, but guests well-accommodated.

On the Boise River. Nice walk paths.

Pros: Being a cross-dresser I can dress and enjoy all the animates with out judgement.
This being about the fifth time staying here, it is because of the excellence of the whole staff and the location to those areas of interest makes it the right choice.

Beautiful location

Our room looked out on the Boise River and river walkway. Lovely staff with delicious breakfast. We were very comfortable, easy shuttle and want to express again how nice the staff was.

Book with hotel not thru Travelocity

Love Travelocity, but hate the room choice the hotel gives you, I think as punishment for not booking direct. We've stayed at this hotel before and loved it! The pool is fabulous, staff great, and the food decent. This time booking through an agency we got an outdated room, next to construction, and wasn't worth saving a few bucks! thats what happens when you book through an agency though...

Retro resort atmosphere

Large resort-like motel complex with a beautiful pool and poolside restaurant, meeting rooms, and multi-use path. Rented bikes and went for a nice ride down the river path to the university. Rooms were dated with 1970's decor that made me feel I was staying at grandma's house, but were clean, roomy, and comfortable. Breakfast with omelette made to order was good and staff were great.
