Have stayed here probably 100+ nights in the last year, over about 20 stays. Every stay has met my needs and exceeded expectations. It is comfortable, with service-minded, friendly staff who enjoy their work. Breakfast is hot and hearty with loads of both healthy as well as tempting options. So glad this place is here, I have already booked my...

It's a bit tricky to get in and out of the place, but its location makes up for any inconvenience. Check-in was fast and very friendly and though we were offered an upgrade for our gold status, we opted for a lower floor because of our baggage. We prefer the cottage like layout of these older Residence Inns and though...

Friendly staff, good location, spacious rooms, easy parking, absolutely delicious breakfast would all make the property rating excellent! The major problem was they did not do a wake up call for me after having been asked 4 different times. This neglect caused me to be bumped from my flight.... It is a great property but someone dropped the ball on...

We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always enjoyed it. The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area. The breakfast is always good. The happy hours are creative and fun. The rooms are always clean. The fire pit out by the pool is cozy. This hotel is located near Boise State University, the Greenbelt, and...

We stayed here for 2 nights did the BSU homecoming. It's very convenient to the campus, we were able to walk. They have a convenient mini-mart on site and a good breakfast in the morning. Rooms were very clean. The only downside is the beds were very creaky and hard. Two very miserable nights sleep.

Jen L- Thank you for the stay. We apologize that the beds were not to your liking and you were uncomfortable. We will investigate the source of the creaking and hope to correct the issue. We hope to see you again.

We stayed here recently as a family. We used the bbq facilities, outdoor tables, and fireplace. The place is definitely dated, but I believe they are reroofing soon. The breakfast area was very small, but everyone seemed to be accommodated. The breakfast offerings had a bit more variety than the standard Residence Inn and it was an enjoyable meal for...

Clean, great staff from front desk to housekeepers. Typical chain hotel breakfasts but this offers more- you can really make your self at home here. Could use dish soap since you don’t run the dishwasher with only a few dirty dishes—but they will even go to the grocery for you

We had a 1 bedroom suite (wall between bedroom and living area) which was quiet. Parking was busy but doable. Location very good for Boise state, but a longer walk for downtown. Coming from the airport it was a little tricky to find the property entrance but an easy trip back to the airport. If your business is not downtown...

I'm a Marriott elite member and stayed at this property for 2 nights. When I checked in I was given an upgrade to their penthouse suite.
